To answer your question..

Maybe they should, but only play against the Bangas, Windies and Zimbabwe.

ICC need to have two groups of Test playing nations, perhaps with a relegation / promotion thing every 3 or 4 years.

The Australia v Saffer series just done was exciting, good for test cricket.

This is just plain embarrassing.

Australia is just as bad as NZ,only reason we won the first test was through Michael Clarke getting 800 bits of luck,had that spaz not balled a no ball when he cleaned up Clarke for 23 NZ would certainly have had a 1st innnings lead and maybe even won the game

Phil Hughes has technique problems and too much pressure on him. They were touting him the next Michael Hayden when he was still playing grade cricket. He needs to go back down and play at domestic level the same way Hayden did
