He`s completely missing the point. England`s bowling wasn`t up to getting this pair out. If you have a good bowling attack, you`ll get Warne out and go through the tail. Yet he looks at it like Australia`s batting-depth did it.
Even if you avoid laughing, and taking this entire quote at face value, it begs the question: how many times has Ashley Giles scored 43 (Warne's score) in a test match? Come to think of it, how many times has our "Wk/batsman" at number 7 scored 43 in a test match?
