Afternoon all,


I agree with you, Adder. I think Lehmann will be making way, as Martyn managed to scrounge his way through in the second dig. He is also the oldest player in the side isn't he?


Having Kat at 5 will provide some really solid middle order batting for opposition to overcome. Second Test should be a ripper.

Yes .... I prefer Lehmann over Martyn when it comes to spin. Martyn has been a little 'flukey' in recent times, I feel.


Stuart MacGill bowled well in the ING match here in Brisbane, from what I saw of him. How 'unlucky' is this fella!

I agree with posters after yours Adder - Lehmann's arguably the best player of spin bowling we have and if we don't take him to India versus India then where do you take him? I think it'll be Martyn who goes but, having said that, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if they dropped Clarke.

LC I agree he is unlucky however I think we would all agree

the bowling attack in India was always going to be three quicks

and Warne. IMHO it was a waste of time taking McGill when

the opportunity was available to have two young spinners

experience the conditions in India for the future.


This is an oldish side and all spare positions must be made

available to youth with talent...or look out in a few years.


Warne is arguably the best leg spinner of all time so McGill was

never going to get a game before him...


Have a look at Clarke...give talented youth a chance and watch

them go.


Bring on the next generation selectors...keep the Aussies where

we love to be...

I also agree Lehmann is a great player of spin and I do envy the selectors

having to choose the side. Here are their averages the envy of the rest of

the cricketing world. http://www.ShareScene.com/html/emoticons/king.gif

Morning Adder,


I assume you and all other cricket fanatics have seen the paper re. Keith Miller passing away. Very sad; that leaves about 2 or 3 of Bradman's '48 Invincibles left. The obit columns wax lyrical about Miller's knock at Lord's where he scored 185 for a Dominions' team just after the War ended. My late father saw that innings and rated it the best he ever saw. Worthwhile going to the English papers too; The Times has a good obit.


Have a good one.

It's a sad day when in Sydney the death of "Superman" is more prominent than the death of Keith Miller. I'm sure all the "Tragics" on this site would have wished to have seen him play. He showed the kind of spirit and flair that can occasionally be lacking in some of today's cricketers.

indeed it is a sad day alfie...


Keith Miller undoubtably the greatest all-rounder having played

for Australia.


Batted in the top four and opened the bowling..


Comparison of today he is a Ponting/McGrath in one...unbelievable.


They are seen very rarely...


The passing of a GREAT MAN and a GREAT CRICKETER
