    Hands up if you wrote off McGrath

    All right, time to own up. Who thought he wouldn't be a force again?

    a bit, though I think I was doing so so that I could be pleasantly surprised if he came good, rather than disappointed if he didn't

    Not so much "wrote off" as "expressed doubts about his body standing up to". Supremely fit 36-year-old, yadda, yadda....but still 36. If we ever put together a decent innings we'll see. Ponting obviously has no issues with over-bowling him tho.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    There really was little evidence to write him off. He was superb in the Champions Trophy.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Always had faith, defended him on here. Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if McGrath survives to '09.

    I couldn't believe anyone wrote him off - and take note S Harmison - this is his first FC match since Janruary and no sign of rust. Mind you it does help if the batting is spineless but that ain't his fault...
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...

    Yea, rust or not, how many McGrath deliveries end up at 2nd slip?

    I'll take my spoon and dessert plate to the Gabba on Day 1, just in case.
    How'd it taste?
