    Days 1-4 are sold out, and tickets for Day 5 will go on sale as soon as they are sure that a Day 5 will actually exist.

    Should be interesting, if the series is dead by then, I wonder if they'll consider letting Vaughan get a game in.

    Sydney test will be won by australia but i reckon due to it being the "spinners wicket" Panesar and warne and macgill (if he plays) will dominate all the wickets, with hoggard doing a little bit for england (monty cant do it all himself....can he?) panesar to finish with match figures of 11/150 and warne to finsih with 10/140 magill if he plays will get 8/100 odd

    I really hope the pitch for the test is something similar to the one served up for the NSW v QLD Ford Ranger game the other week where there was a lot of bounce for the paceman and good turn for the spinners. Hard for the batsmen to get in, but once they were in there were runs. Would make a good contest IMO.

    I doubt MacGill will play as australia has already won plus they can't drop Clark. Unless they go with 5 bowlers dropping Symonds.

    True, could be the 1st SCG test that MacGill will miss in a long time. Could probably be the end of his excellent test career if we don't see him TBH..

    Got a feeling it could be JL's final Test match.

    If anyone's goig to be dropped for MacGill it has to be Lee. 8 wickets @ 50+ is just not good enough, no matter how good he looks or how much effort he puts in. The job of a bowler is to take wickets and Lee isn't doing that. But, MacGill isn't eactly saying to the selectors, "You must pick me!" with his performances of late.

    I reckon if Symonds fails again in Melbourne with the bat, the selectors should think about Cameron White for the 5th test. He is in fine form with the bat and could bat at 6 or 7 and although he hasn't bowled that well this season he could be another spinning option. Because the selectors don't want to drop Brett Lee despite he's not taking wickets it could be an option.

    However, the talk is that Symonds will get the last 2 tests.

    Symonds just isn't really good enough at Test level to be honest, he has been given more than enough chances to prove himself, and none have payed off. Look to the future, not the past.
