Maxwell in line for shock Test return
Allrounder, whose last Test came five years ago, may need to dust off his Baggy Green after being added to squad to face Sri Lanka in Galle
Bison , Inglis or Maxy to replace Head then unless they move Carey up and include the second spinner/third quick that way.

Australia A about to chase down 370 in the 4th innings to win the 2nd unofficial test against Sri Lanka A.

Gone from 4/69 to 5/366 thanks to Hunt (107), Peirson (128*) and Hardie (78*). Terrific result.
Going to be a interesting 12 months to see how Hardie progresses.

Good to see Hunt make a 100

Was just thinking how proactive the BBL SC organisers will be if the 11+ Test Squad players are all in fact available for BBL after the Sydney test (sounds like the A v SA LOI series will be cancelled/moved).

Not sure we should be restricted in who we can choose if they are all/any available to play , maybe :-

* A round(s) (depending on fixture) of unlimited trades
* A round (s) of 7-8 trades per round

Might not be smart trading in Hazlewood , Lyon , Smith , Starc (if they are all at the Sixers and the Sixers are on the Bye)

Even without the Big 5 , Carey , Head , Khawaja , Labuschagne , Lyon (based on the current side) would be viable selections , not sure how/where the Scorchers fit Green in (with Agar , Bison , Inglis , Turner +.2 OS bats again)

Could also have the case where multiple OS players are leaving at the same time to go to other tournaments.

I guess they have plenty of time to think of different scenarios and come up with ideas/solutions.
