The line "The point being that fast bowling is far more pertinent to contests with India." is not a proper defence when the series MacGill played in, Australia's fast bowlers didn't dominate. They could have used MacGill getting some wickets.
I agree its not a good sample size to judge his career, but he's a bloke who didnt have a proper career and that's the debate here isn't it? I mean he didn't get every opportunity to forge his career, so its all speculation. But on top of that, he also got to be selected many times when the pitch was turning as a second spinner, so there are advantages and disadvantages to it.
