This tour includes the following matches

20/6 1 day game (D/N) vs Northamptonshire
23/6 1 day game vs Derbyshire
29/6 1 day game vs Worcestershire
30/6 - 3/7 4 day game vs Gloucestershire
7/7- 10/7 4 day game vs Sussex
14/7 - 17/7 Somebody is playing the England Lions, their A team in a 4 day game, Not sure why cricinfo has listed as part of the Australia A tour unless Australia A might be playing them. The timing works nicely.
23/7 - 26/7 vs Australia 

The One day World Cup runs from 30/5 to 14/7, with Australia's last guaranteed game being on 6/7 so players part of the World Cup squad are not going to be able to be picked in the Australia A team. This might effect players like Richardson, Carey, Maxwell, Handscomb and possibly others.

The first test of the Ashes start on 1/8 so the Aus- A vs Aus game is really close to the first teat. I could perhaps see the Ashes squad being picked after the 4 day game against Sussex as the vast majority of the squad will be with the World Cup squad or the Aus A squad. Then again if the one day team makes the WC final perhaps it would be announced just after that. Paine, Burns, Head and Lyon could be neither squad, maybe Khawaja does not make the WC squad and maybe there will be a fast bowler in the same situation.

With 4 Shield rounds to go and the Shield final these is plenty of time for players to play them into or out of the Australian A team. The selection is also a bit complicated by the 3 one day games at the start of tour. Will there be players selected specifically for these games or will there be players selected in the squad because of their one day ability who also play the 4 day games?

Still at the moment there is a number of players who seem to be very strong chances to make the Australia A tour and perhaps give themselves a shot at the Ashes squad.
Marcus Harris, Matt Renshaw, Will Pucovski and Chris Tremain seem to be the most obvious 4 picked. Other batsmen in contention might be Lehmann, Sangha and maybe the likes of Patterson, Labuschagne, Burns and Head will be put in the squad. Bowlers might be Pattinson, Meredith, Steketee and Worral. Maybe even Hazlewood makes the squad. Not sure who the wicketkeeper might be if Carey makes the WC squad, perhaps Wade or Pierson. 

The spinner in the side is very much open, Holland is probably Lyon's number 2 but he surely will not play in the A team. Perhaps Agar or Swepson or Pope will bowl themselves into the A squad in the remaining Shield matches.

I'd go close to this line up, but add Bancroft.

Doolan has had his chance. He has  the talent, but not the mental  fortitude and self- brief to succeed. In form he is a magnificent batter to watch - he looks like Mark Waugh.

When he  is out of form he really struggles to get off strike with singles too.

I didn't realise Silk had scored enough recent runs?

Sadly I agree with you over Doolan. Ok replace him with Bancroft. I have been watching the progress of Silk since his troubles with depression. He is almost back to his best in all formats.  2018/19 FC 451 @37.5 with one 100 .  Is not as yet smashing the door but is well and truly back with self belief. Always had the talent. Meredith is also out. Sheer speed is little help in Pom conditions.

I would go with,

Batsmen: Renshaw, Harris, Handscomb, Labuschagne, Patterson, Pucovski, Wade
WK: Carey, Pierson
Fast bowlers: Richardson, Hazlewood, Tremain and one of Worrall, Meredith and Pattinson.
Spin Bowler: Agar or Swepson.

Now some of these will probably be in the WC squad and will need to be replaced.

Someone like Steketee probably does not make the squad yet but he is young, having a good season and if he has a very good second half of the season might make this squad.
Lehmann has not had his greatest season but it still has been reasonable and if puts together a good group of innings in the second half of the season he might make this squad.
There are quite a few players in this sort of position.

There is in fact four pointless one dayers?. Makes no sense when all remaining cricket is red ball. What is below match. Not listed in official program in link. Big mystery.

The World Cup final is 14 July. Should Aus need to call up a replacement for the last half of the round robin or the finals, this is perfect timing. Rather than bringing in someone out of the cold from Australia.

If that is the case I hope their is two squads named, one for the one day matches and one for the proper cricket.

cricket.com.au has 5 one dayers, including two against Gloucestershire instead on the 4 game cricinfo lists. Then a 3 day game against Sussex instead of a 4 day game. Then the 4 day game against Australia.
Might has well get the players to go to some park somewhere and play marbles, this is a pathetic tour if it is correct.

It's a good start. Australia is new to this. And obviously using it for WC and Ashes depth of possible call up players.

The fixture list just released is 

June 20: Australia A v Northamptonshire (50-over)

June 23: Australia A v Derbyshire (50-over)

June 25: Australia A v Worcestershire (50-over)

June 30: Aus A v Gloucestershire (50-over)

July 2: Aus A v Gloucestershire (50-over)

July 7-10 Aus A v Sussex, Arundel

July 14-17: Australia A v England Lions, Canterbury

July 23-26: Australia v Australia A, Rose Bowl

So the match against the England Lions is confirmed.

The squad will include one day players to cover the world cup squad and Ashes' squad hopefuls.

The current One day squad is Finch, Carey, Cummins, Behrendorff, Coulter-Nile, Handscomb, Khawaja, Lyon, S. Marsh, Maxwell, J & K Richardson, Stoinis, Turner, Zampa.
Warner, Smith and Starc are quite likely to make the world cup squad and Hazlewood is a slim chance although injury will probably rule him out of even being considered.
So those who miss out on the World Cup squad from these 19 players will almost certainly make the A squad.
Langer has been quoted as saying there is 19 or 20 players who deserve to be in the squad, perhaps D'Arcy Short is the 20th player.

Paine will captain the A squad.
Head, Patterson and Harris are highly likely to make the A squad. 
I want Wade and Phillipe to make the squad, Pucovski probably should be their as well but with possibly two batsmen coming out of the one day squad he might be forced out. What about Labuschagne, Burns, and Bancroft? Even Maddinson could be considered.
If Lyon drops out of the WC squad will he be in the A squad? Would there be a second spinner? To my Holland is Australia's second spinner. O'Keefe is in good form as well.
As far as fast bowlers go it is less clear. Pattinson returned to the Victorian team and impressed in the absense of Tremain but he probably needs a very good last match to make the A squad. Tremain should be in the squad. 
Will Hazlewood make the squad? He will need cricket if he is in the plans for the Ashes, but should he be in those plans.

My squad without anyone in WC considerations would be,
Wk: Paine with cover from Wade or Phillipee
Batsmen: Harris, Burns, Bancroft, Head, Patterson, Wade, Phillippe, Pucovski
Spinner: Holland
Fast Bowlers: Tremain, Boland, Bird, Steketee,

I'm biased, JJ.

Paine is the best keeper we have ATM as I've viewed all the Shield keepers at Bellerive.

Experts sitting near me, at live games, comment on his finer points.

His advancing age is his biggest issue.

Gday Dc,
jaszyjim - I was given heaps in the early stages when I said smith & Warner would return
as soon as their suspension was over - proved correct.

It's like I mentioned earlier - whether we like or not,  cricket is a business with a bottom line.
As soon as CA can make Smith captain again, without causing too many waves, once his ban is
over, he will be captain of the test side - reality is he is a best test captain we have.
Payne, as I also went to extremes to point out, his age will catch up to him.
If he cannot keep then his value solely as a captain to the team as captain expires,
as he will have no value to the bottom line - harsh but that's business

I think Smith has been a poor  man manager.

On the field his body language showed he was frustrated with players around him, if they made mistakes. He doesn't exude leadership and coolness in crises.

Paine looks more upbeat.

In the ODI team Finch has also impressed too. 

Both seem to be much more mature men than Smith.

 Aussie A bowler Jhye Richardson is running out of time if he wants an Ashes berth. Richardson is back bowling, albeit off a shortened run, under the watchful eye of coach Ryan Harris on a week long camp at the NCC in Brisbane almost three months after dislocating his right bowling shoulder in Sharjah. Next week he leaves with the A boys for their tour with the first limited over match starting on June 20.

Our other crock Josh Hazlewood is back to full pace and is also taking part in the A camp where the English Dukes is being used. He will saddle up for both the 50 over and 4 day A matches on the England tour.

Our A boys have wrapped their NCC Camp.

 Aussie A bowler Jhye Richardson is running out of time if he wants an Ashes berth. Richardson is back bowling, albeit off a shortened run, under the watchful eye of coach Ryan Harris on a week long camp at the NCC in Brisbane almost three months after dislocating his right bowling shoulder in Sharjah. Next week he leaves with the A boys for their tour with the first limited over match starting on June 20.






Great to see you back, Dragons4Life.

Let us hope Richardson is fit for the Ashes.

Thanks for clarifying this, Dragons4Life.

I thought Hazlewood was in the One Day World Cup squad!

Please continue to call me Baggers. No Hazlewood has been recuping after some back trouble several months ago.

Please continue to call me Baggers. No Hazlewood was never part of the WC squad as he injured his back prior to announcement of the team.

High performance. 

There was an article about him in the local tabloid today.
