Gillespie, Hayden, Kasprowicz, Martyn dropped from Australia's Super Series squads
Despite Steve Waugh's cautioning
against a knee-jerk response to the loss against England
, the Australian selectors, in a fairly predictable move, axed Gillespie and Kasprowicz from the test and one-day sides
to take on the Rest of the World side
Michael Hussey, James Hopes
, Shane Watson and Nathan Bracken, who are currently touring Pakistan as members of the 'A' side have been included. It does seem as though Australia are starting a "rebuilding" process
beginning with the Super Series games.
I am not a big fan
of Martyn, but I think the wrong chap has been chosen as the fall guy. Hayden's inclusion in the test side is purely because of his century at The Oval
I think that century may ultimately prove detrimental to Australia because he was clearly out-thought by the opposition. Until the last test, Martyn
had fairly identical numbers. Admittedly, Hayden's century did give Australia a chance, but it was far too late in the context of the way the series panned out.
