The other benefit of Starc in the side is the footmarks he creates for Lyon.

I’d honestly have Starc, Hazlewood and Harris come in for Pattinson, Siddle and Bancroft.

I think Australia won in spite of the surprise selections, not because of them.

Its the old adage, Cricket is a team sport made up of individual performances. None of the bolters into the team contributed a great deal to the victory with the exception of Wade.
I agree chaps.
Little harsh on Pattinson. I thought he was pretty good, without being special.

Lyon doesn't really need them. He relies on ball work rather than assistance from the wicket.

Pattinson being "rested". Aussies maintaining the cotton wool method of injury prevention.
