    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Thats what Durham thought
    1st game- 12 overs 113 runs 0 wickets
    2nd game- 6 overs 63 runs 0 wickets

    3rd game...Oh wait, he been given his ticket home by then

    Tait in 04/05
    vs Victoria: 5/39 & 4/34
    vs Queensland: 1/38 & 7/99
    vs Tasmania: 4/111 & 3/72
    vs New South Wales: 4/137 & DNB
    vs Western Australia: 4/61 & 4/64
    vs New South Wales: 2/83 & 4/62
    vs Victoria: 2/69 & DNB
    vs Queensland: 4/61 & 4/97
    vs Western Australia: 4/50 & 2/109
    vs Tasmania: 2/54 & 5/71

    That's 65 wickets @ 20.16 in 10 matches, with an SR of 36. Durham wouldn't have minded that.

    The guy can bowl, I wouldn't place too much stock in a couple of poor games a number of years ago when he had no ball problems. I don't think he should be in the team yet, but it'd be foolish to write him off for the future. He's a bit more consistent in line these days than he was in 04/05 too, and maintains his pace a bit longer.

    Not really - because his comment was clearly tongue in cheek...

    I know Tait can bowl, but to me he is not an Aussie player. From an outsider the modern Australian player seems very polished at the beginning of their career with many of their cricketing rough edges already shaven off.

    They are the guys to benchmark yourself against and seem to lack any real failings compared to other Test sides.

    Thats why guys like Tait and Symonds dont seem to fit in IMO. They just dont look 'complete'. Both are good cricketers, and I wish Symonds had chosen England, but I seem to expect more from Aussie players.

    For England, talented but flawed players are acceptable but for Australia I dont think they are with the exception, obviously, of Warne.

    Warne has a cricketing flaw?
