Khawaja will probably end up getting the nod. Maxwell is playing in place of Watto mainly because he'll the AR slot but Khawaja would probably replace Hussey. Lets see how the Australia's youngsters play out. I'm a fan of a lot of these guys and see them doing quite well although I'm expecting some bumps in the road
