    The continued selection of Symonds is pretty amazing, but he's done an okay job with the ball in his test career so far. Not a great record or anything, but he's taken key wickets in a few tests now. If anything his bowling has exceeded expectations, while his batting has fallen well short.

    It'd be great if Watson was fit, but as it is Symonds will definitely play the remaining tests and then it'll be curtains on his test career.

    I have a cousin who is flying out to see this game. He is 19 and its his 7th holiday this year. Yes, seventh. He should be at work grafting, but instead he is constantly on holiday. I can at least take some pleasure out of him being miserable.

    I think there is a refund if the match goes for less than an hour of any day or something like that. Or on the 5th day as it sometimes is like 5 runs to get or something.

    I also get the feeling it may be Gilly's as well.

    Would do anything to fly down to Sydney now. But i could still see Warne at least twice over the next 2 years & McGrath if he goes to the WC. But it will be an even greater day than when Waugh retired..

    I was there when Waugh retired, great day. Still got the red flag things that were given out.

    I dont think it will be, even if it is though i think there is alot more potential with the replacement for Gilly and the batsmen then there is for Warne and McGrath.

    Personally i can see Langer playing until hes 40.

    I would rather Hayden to play until that age, but if either can be around for so long that would be good though..
