How in the world do you expect Australia to utilize 6 front-line bowlers in a Test innings against any opposition in this day and age? Even with 5 bowlers there tends to be one or two who don't get much of a bowl, and I'm wondering how exactly they justify their place if they bowl just a handful of overs.
You think after the Gillespie-Kasprowcz horror-story that many Australians wouldn't have been greatful for 6 bowlers last summer?
As I said, though - I wasn't being entirely serious.
