They don't in isolation, but if you consider that the significant improvement in his performance coincides precisely with when his discussion with Mark Taylor led him to rethink his bowling, and that he's been the dominant Australian bowler in that time, it does mean something.Originally Posted by Richard
And for the record, the figures aren't flattering in the slightest. You'll be hard pressed to find a bowler averaging 30 for a series when they bowled as well as Lee did against South Africa. his 3 for 90 odd on Boxing Day was comfortably the best spell of his career, and on another day he could have had half a dozen wickets.
Your claim was that MacGill had not "been successful" in test cricket, which is quite clearly a pile of crap. Compare him and his record to other spinners around the world, and it's obvious he's one of the best. MacGill isn't a world beater, but he's a high quality test bowler who would have hundreds of wickets and a long test career if he didn't happen to be stuck behind Warne.Originally Posted by Richard
