“I wanted experienced players in England because it’s more of a genuine cricket match,” Waugh told cricket.com.au recently.

“You need a bit more experience in England conditions I think – unless the game has changed in the last 20 years, which it probably has.

I think you need really good players in those conditions, in England,” Steve Waugh added.

Well, as Steve Waugh said, the experienced campaigners in the dugout will certainly help Australians to do well with the current troubles. Meanwhile, it is interesting to see whether Cricket Australia considers his suggestion.
