    I thought it was illegal for players to sell their comp tickets on? Maybe he doesn't know his dad is making a bit on the sly

    May as well take the selection discussion in here.

    I think that, barring a great second innings knock, Martyn will be out the door come the WACA test. Assuming Watson is fit he's an automatic selection for the flexibility he adds and his recent form, and Martyn has pissed it away in both tests so far while Clarke has been responsible and handled the bowling well.

    Picking Watson opens the door for MacGill, who is a pretty good selection atm as he's fit, has some Pura Cup wickets behind him and the attack struggled in Adelaide. The WACA will probably be a road anyway, in which case his ability to bowl long spells and gets some assistance from a dead surface will be helpful.

    So who do Australia drop? Anyone think Martyn deserves another chance ahead of Clarke, or that Watson shouldn't be picked? I'm guessing five specialist bowlers might be a popular option, but I don't think they'll go that way. I'm thinking that, as harsh as it is, Lee is the one who will have to go to get MacGill in the team, and Martyn's test career is more or less over.

    As you said, barring a great 2nd innings knock Martyn will be gone. Clarke has shown a lot better temperament and attitude to batting in the longer version of the game since being dropped, and it showed with his patient 50 in brisbane. I'm hoping he can continue on tomorow and make a well earned Century.

    If Watson is indeed fit and plays, and Australia still holds a lead, whether it be 1-0 or 2-0, Lee deserves another crack IMO. It'd be a different story if Macgill was taking 10-fers for NSW but he's not, and for that reason i'd keep Lee for at least another match to see if he can get it right.

    A little radical, however my 3rd Test XI:

    1. Hayden (Jaques breathing down his neck)
    2. Langer
    3. Ponting
    4. Hussey
    5. Clarke
    6. Gilchrist (after his ton in Adelaide )
    7. Lee (his batting ave is 43.75 over last 5-tests)
    8. Warne
    9. Clark
    10. MacGill
    11. McGrath

    It's supposed to be a road so why do you need more batting than the top 6 above. After all, Gilchrist, Lee & Warne at # 6-8 are better than Flintoff, Jones & Giles

    [As I said a bit radical & I'm sure they'll go Watson at # 6, with Lee or MacGill to carry the drinks]

    Any thoughts on what the WACA pitch is going to be like? I heard that when WA played there it was just a road, flat, slow and takes spin, nothing like the WACA of old.

    Three FC scorecards from this year (tame draw to start, then a win by just 6 runs, followed by a huge Innings win)

    Damn, any pitch that lets Marcus North score such a big hundred must be mighty flat, unless he's improved since he played at Lancashire in 2005.
