Aussie selection punts paying off

  Aussie selection punts paying off Australian cricket selectors could be excused for feeling smug as their Ashes gambles pay off. Maybe they're not morons after all.Australian cricket selectors could be excused for feeling smug.They were labelled idiots, confused and morons for their Ashes selections.But their punts are paying off.Shaun Marsh, in his eighth coming to the Test side, is making runs and appearing rock solid.So is Tim Paine, who wasn't even wicketkeeping for his state when named in Australia's team for the Test series against England. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.

Former Aussie fast bowler Rodney Hogg labelled Mitchell Marsh as the worst performing number 6 in Test history. “That’s why we’re always searching for the fifth bowler, and there’s nobody here in Australia who can do it apart from Marsh . But having said that, he’s not allowed to bat at six because

Rodney William Marsh (born 11 October 1944) is an English former footballer and football coach; he later worked as a broadcaster. A forward, he won nine caps for England between 1971 and 1973, scoring one international goal.

Rodney Hogg is as confused as the rest of Australia at Mitchell Marsh's potential Test recall. And he's letting everyone know about it. 

On the back of some recent Sheffield Shield form for Western Australia - including a knock of 144 - Marsh has been drafted back into the squad ahead of the third Ashes Test in Perth.

Paceman Chadd Sayers was the unlucky one to drop out, but Hogg is furious that all-rounder Glenn Maxwell wasn't called in.

Maxwell has also enjoyed some stellar recent Shield form, scoring a double-century agianst New South Wales two weeks ago.

Speaking on SEN Radio, Hogg made the case for Maxwell's selection.

"It's a kick in the butt for Maxwell," Hogg said.

"He went away, flew up to Brisbane (as potential injury cover), comes back and makes 250 for Victoria. So he said to the selectors 'you've made a good decision to take me up there ... I'm now a very good first-class player'.

Rodney William Marsh MBE (born 4 November 1947) is a former Australian wicketkeeper. A colourful character, Marsh had a Test career spanning from the 1970–71 to the 1983–84 Australian season. In 96 Tests, he set a world record of 355 wicketkeeping dismissals

Aussie legend Rodney Hogg has slammed the selection of Marcus Stoinis for India, saying Stoinis doesn’t deserve to be in Victoria’s Sheffield Shield side. Stoinis was called in to replace the injured Mitch Marsh on Wednesday night, with many questioning the selection since he is averaging only 15

"He hasn't knocked the door down with the bat. He's played in five first class games and made over 45 twice."

Hogg said that Marsh's inclusion is good news from a bowling perspective, but remained adamant that he shouldn't bat higher than seven.

"He's not allowed to bat at six because of his average," Marsh said

"If he comes into the side, (Tim) Paine needs to come up to six and Cummins or Marsh at seven.

"He hasn’t knocked and said ‘I wasn’t good enough for those 21 Test matches, I’ve gone away and improved’. I don't think he has."

Australia takes a commanding 2-0 series lead into the third Test in Adelaide, which starts next Thursday.
