    Got Hodgified a few years ago, he got out for 130 in the 27th over. Was fielding down at fine leg and talking to his Mum, I think it was just after the squad had been picked for Brisbane Test against the Windies. She was having a bit of a whinge about it all, but she had a point.

    Yea, but even you have to admit that his axing last season was totally unfair byt the selectors. Even if the selectors wanted Martyn back, the fact that Hodge wasn't even retained after such a solid start to his career & Clarke was picked (who at the time wasn't batting so well in tests) was rough.

    He should definately be the back-up batsman in the test side ATM no doubt.

    On MacGill i'd say he has much reason to moan, his talent has been wasted most of his career. As they always say, unlucky to be playing in the Warne era

    And so far this season, 498 runs at 83.00.

    He couldn't do a whole lot more to get picked, especially with a spot that is in the balance.
    Damn, thats impressive yo, wasn't aware he has been so consistent in recent seasons. But Dave was right to point out that he didn't to hot in Lancashire colours last year. But if he keeps that up, an Australian call-up may not be too far away after all..

    If you take away the 203 not out Hodge scored against South Africa than he didn't do much. He also scored that double hundred on a pitch that was so flat that SA batted out the last day and a half to draw the match in the only test Australia hasn't won since losing the Ashes.

    Wouldn`t surprise me. We should make it an (un)Official award. The 'Khaled Mahmud' award for the poster that just kept coming back?

    Don't know if we want to encourage that.

    Again I am off to the Boxing Day test to see another dead rubber test but this time I do not care. We have reclaimed the ashes. It is a toss up between if i want to see the Australians bat and watch Ponting and Hussey dominate or see Warne take his 700th. I think ill chose the latter, being their for a history making achievement will be awesome

    So ill be their boxing day, maybe day 2, be there day 3 and we will see how good a test it is from their on. Can't wait for a few solid drinking days ahead.

    Thats a bit harsh, that perth pitch wasn't that flat, on the 1st day it had plenty of assistance for the seamers, it flatted out really when Australia batted second. Yea other than his debut 50+ he doesn't, but runs are runs can't totally fault him for that, plus its not as if he looked out of place at test level. With all his domestic experience i reckon he could be a useful addition to the test set-up for the next 2-3 years at least.

    So therefore, when you add in the 203* that he DID make, he did do much?
