As both Head and Kawaja have filed compelling proceedings for selection, the Australian selection committee will make a painful call prior to the first ash test starting December 9.

“Heady deserves it as much as I do. I’m really close to him. It doesn’t matter what happens. I’m sure the selectors will do their thing, so I’ll start there. . “
Kawaja said he had a duty to stay engrossed in his future at Buggy Green.
