The Roar: I know I wasn’t alone this week in expressing surprise at the selection of NSW bat Nic Maddinson and Victorian ‘keeper Matthew Wade for the Third Test against South Africa starting today in Adelaide.
I know this because Twitter blew up when the announcement was made on Sunday afternoon, and there have been countless articles written about it since.
But they have been picked, and there’s no point debating their selection any further. They’re both in the side now, they’ll both play in Adelaide, and given the upheaval the selectors have now brought upon the team, they will be in the Test team now for the rest of the summer. At least.
