    I think what, Lyon and Holland should be in the squad. What does not turn the ball much but can bat well. Holland will be the specialist spinner.

    I would have Agar for team balance. You can not have two of the bowling attack that cant contribute with the bat..specially on UAE turning decks.

    I forgot to add Agar. I was talking about him when I said he can bat well. I think Maxwell can also play at 6 or 5. He can bowl handy off-breaks as well!

    I don't think Mitchell Marsh could do anything on the tour of UAE. His batting is mediocre and bowling is even worser than Maxi!

    I beg to differ. Mitch's batting has hit another level since his injury/sacking. He now looks like he belongs at the crease. As for his bowling he is capable of opening the Aussie attack imho. Tremain and one of the Richardsons will likely open.. but Mitch could. Oops forgot Starc.

    Carey to miss second India A match; Renshaw in line for return

    Peter Handscomb took the wicketkeeping gloves

    Australia A vice-captain Alex Carey is set to miss the second unofficial Test against India A starting Saturday as he has returned home for the birth of his child.Peter Handscomb will keep wicket in his place. Meanwhile, opening batsman Matt Renshaw is on track for selection for the second Test, having missed the first with a hamstring strain.

    Carey had an impressive outing behind the stumps during the first match in Bengaluru, and although his two catches in the game don't tell that story, Carey was reliable on a low and slow pitch, particularly as it deteriorated on the last day.

    With Australia likely to rotate the squad around to bring in two spinners - Ashton Agar and Mitchell Swepson - Handscomb's job as stand-in keeper will be particularly challenging. While Handscomb is no stranger to wicketkeeping, having done the job for Victoria, Melbourne Stars and Yorkshire before, it has largely been restricted to limited-overs cricket.

    According to ESPNcricinfo's records, Handscomb last started a first-class match as designated wicketkeeper inDecember 2015, when he kept for Victoria in Melbourne during the Sheffield Shield.

    Handscomb has kept in India before, in an ODI in Indore last year, but the rigours of a four-day game will be markedly different.

    It will also add extra pressure in what will be Handscomb's final push for a spot in the senior Test squad for their series against Pakistan in the UAE next month. Handscomb's last first-class century came in February this year, but in the seven innings since - including two in the Johannesburg Test against South Africa - Handscomb has managed to get into double-figures on only one occasion. Handscomb had a poor quadrangular series last month as well, managing only four runs in two innings, and is on something of a remodelling phase, having admitted that bowlers had worked him out.

    Handscomb still remains a strong contender for Test selection, particularly for his skills against spin. With the additional responsibility of wicketkeeping, he could be pushed down the order, presumably to No. 6 where his said skills will be more prominently on display. It could allow him both time and freedom to get himself in, unlike in Bengaluru where in both innings at No. 4, he was at the centre of middle-order collapses. Should that be the case, Queensland's Marnus Labuschagne could be pushed up the order. Labuschagne, who had stayed back with the Test squad for the first Test as a reserve for the injured Renshaw, will now remain with the squad for the second game as well.

    Australia A squad for the second Test:Usman Khawaja, Matthew Renshaw, Kurtis Patterson, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh (capt), Peter Handscomb (wk), Marnus Labuschagne, Ashton Agar, Brendan Doggett, Jon Holland, Michael Neser,

    Fawad Ahmed should be in the team for two test vs Pakistan OR vs India A.

    Today at Alur,indian spinner shared 5 wickets on day one as Aus A 180 for 6 now still 24 over left on day one with Neser 23* and Mitchel Marsh 43* doing repair job.

    Earlier K.Patterson, NSW guy,48,Head 68 batted reasonably to push moderate Oz score but Renshaw(0),Handscomb(8) and Labu(0) dismissed cheaply.

    220/6 partnership here for 40*

    Fawad an Australia test bowler, who now leading wicket taker in CPL 2018.my general impression of Travis head as all rounder than specialist spinner so I think you Need specialist spinner in sub -continent.Holland/Fawad can destroyed any batting line up, things change now, Asian player unable to read top spin NOW than BEFORE.Agar is economical only but he can hardly makes break through when you need most.

    Australia not yet announce team for 4 test innings in UAE but I wish Handscomb might loose his place for Patterson.

    Fawad Is too old. I really want Sweppo to be in the squad, he doesn't have to play, it just would be a great learning experience for the youngster. Agar will be the secondary spinner.
    Tim Paine will most likely maintain captaincy, he was recently taken on some leadership tour or something.
    Shaun Marsh and Khawaja seem to have a confirmed spot.
    Mitchell Starc is fit for the tour.
    Renshaw will most be selected.
    Same goes with Mitch Marsh

    I think Travis Head should be selected.
    He's still quite young, and already captains his state in all 3 formats.
    I predict he will be Australia's next captain.
