Ahead of their first match in this years 2010 Airtel Champions League Twenty20 Tournaent, the Victorian Bushrangers have excluded test stars Peter Siddle, Bryce McGain and James Pattinson. In what appears to be a move toward youth, the Bushrangers have picked Glenn Maxwell, John Hastings and Aaron Finch for their Champions League Twenty20 debuts against The Warriors tonight in Port Elizabeth.
In a sign of their depth in the bowling stocks, the Bushrangers have included in the side the likes of Dirk Nannes, Shane Harwood, Clinton McKay and Andrew McDonald, all former or current Australian players.
Chairman of Selectors, John Macwhirter said the strength of the Bushrangers bowling presented the most headaches at the selection table with Bryce McGain, James Pattinson and Peter Siddle left out on this occasion.
It remains to be seen what role the bowling trio of Siddle, McGain and Pattinson will play in the tournament, but it would seem likely that the would call on them at some point with such a grueling schedule ahead.
