    I read a report that Watson was taking to a hospital with abdominal pain.

    Hopefully it was just something that he ate and nothing more serious.

    Macgill loves the GABBA and should certainly start the first test

    MacGill wont play the first test, he will be lucky to get a game at the SCG and Adel Oval. One gets the felling the selectors will decide to go with Johnson using the variety of a left armer, as the reason to choice him in front of MacGill.

    Stomach bug apparently. Thought for a moment he was getting as injury-prone as a McDermott or a Bond.

    Still got 5 and a bit days to go. So if Australian players are still sick by then it would have to be a fairly serious sickness.

    I also think Lee is a cert. Still think Mcgrath should have stayed in Aust. and bowled some decent spells in the Pura cup. After all it is the toughest domestic comp. in the World.

    Never write off a champion, but if the team was picked tomorrow I don't think on form he should be selected
    You know it makes sense.

    S.Clark has had his fair share of tonkings in one dayers on placid pitches and Gillespie is bowling pies in domestic cricket. Got to take the punt with Johnson IMO.

    Clark has the yards behind him though, and would be able to deal with that. Johnson would be playing his first (or second or third etc) test with really only one year in the Pura Cup and 10 ODI's behind him. Don't know how he'd deal with getting pasted to be honest.

    Anyway, I reckon it should be MacGill instead of either of them.

    If Australia pick three specialist seamers and Watson, he's not going to get much of a bowl. In light of that, I'd pick a batsman (ie Clarke) instead of him. However, having Watson is good for when the selectors pick MacGill so he can cover as a third paceman.

    "He is quite capable of performing that role in one-day cricket but I'm not convinced about his ability to achieve that level in a game where batsmen aren't so prone to throwing away their wicket."
    Just part of Chappelli's media blitz to get Clarke back in the team. Honestly, the guy was a good captain but he's the worst pundit.

    Maybe so. However, Watson is the biggest confidence player I have seen. If he's doing well then he's all smiles and niggling batsman jumping for joy around the field. When he's not his head is down, his bowling is poor and it affects all parts of his game.
