    Chris Lynn or Aaron Finch, which one of the two should open with David Warner in the CT?

    A selection dilemma for Australia at the moment is who should open with David Warner. Aaron Finch and Chris Lynn are both in contention.

    Lynn has been in good form in the ipl and big bash,whilst Finch has the international experience.

    Who would you go for? I'll take a chance and go with Lynn.

    Darren Lehmann has seemed to be favouring Finch judging from recent comments he has made.

    Problem with Finch is that he is useless apart from the one random innings where he fires. His strike rotation is as bad as some of the Pakistani batsmen.

    Think Finch could be coming in at #3 or below Smith in the batting order. Lynn will open with Warner, if I were to guess.

    Australia has so many talented hitters. Only England can boast of similar talent.

    Was surprised he was selected over Khawaja and Handscomb

    Travis Head. Nobody remembers his world-record partnership with Warner? He's also the best fielder in the world.

    Lynn is the biggest hack I've ever seen. Finch should open. Lynn has no place in international cricket. Should stick to playing leagues.

    You should be thankful that your worst option is Finch. At least you dont have to deal with Azhar Ali or Shahzad,

    Move Head to four and no Finch.

    I'm not sold on Head yet. Maybe he has super credentials but he's been ~~alright from what I've seen so far. Finch might be struggling for form right now but he is a superior match winner.

    Australia have such a strong order, its scary. With Stoinis there too, it should be tough for any bowling side.

    If Smith hadn't played that Super innings In world cup semi final, Finch had made sure Australia will loose.

    Finch is no where close to fielding calibre of lynn. The guy is insane at fielding.

    Finch. He knows that if he fails Lynn will take his spot for the foreseeable future and he will turn up.
