), but DtR isn't McGrath (or, given his bowling arm, Davidson) incarnate. &, I know stats can be used to prove anything, but to provide some justification for the selectors if they go that way Siddle's record
at the Gabba, whilst based on a very small sample size, is better than Bollinger's
who has taken his wickets there at 44 apiece.
Regardless if he took a hatful, it'd feel very harsh on Dougie who's gone an awesome job for us to be replaced by someone just because the selectors seem to love them.
Also, since when has Dougie played at the Gabba at test level? Also, FC form should be Sweet FA (for example, Bollinger was useless pre-2006) - it's down to how well they've bowled at test level.
