Yea, but even you have to admit that his axing last season was totally unfair byt the selectors. Even if the selectors wanted Martyn back, the fact that Hodge wasn't even retained after such a solid start to his career & Clarke was picked (who at the time wasn't batting so well in tests) was rough.
He should definately be the back-up batsman in the test side ATM no doubt.
On MacGill i'd say he has much reason to moan, his talent has been wasted most of his career. As they always say, unlucky to be playing in the Warne era
