Semi-related tangent: what's Patto jr like as T20 bowler? His BB is pretty decent.
Actually Pattinson sr must soon re-qualify for Oz too if he hasn't already. Think it was 2008 when he played his only test.
Could theoretically see both playing for 'Strayla.

And probably a stack more; I got bored eventually. I'm not saying they're all better T20 bowlers than him, but the sheer volume of the list (which isn't even finished in all likelihood) tends to suggest that McKay keeping it tight in T20 cricket is a myth. He bowls length pies; if there's one good thing T20 cricket has brought to the world, it's an environment in which that sort of bowling gets punished.

Still maintain that in SL conditions McKay would have been a very good option.

Guys who turn the strike over do have their place in T20s, but I wouldn't select one over a big hitter purely on principle ie I'd take 6 big hitters if the 5th and 6th ones were "better" than the accumulators.
Now obviously "better" would be hard to quantify given that they perform different roles. It all comes down to the selector, I guess. A Dave Hussey sort of player is definitely an option for the #5/6 role though, regardless of him being a "specialist top 4 batsman."
(I hope I haven't paraphrased Cribb here, but from what I read he seemed to be disagreeing for another reason).
