    The Aussie Spinners

    Not making the impact I was expecting. Shayne must be squirming watching this rubbish.

    The England seamers seem to have got to grips with the wicket.

    This isn't a batting wicket, so our bowlers should have a field day out there and comfortably win this very intriguing 2nd test.

    You were expecting Nathan Hauritz, Marcus North, Michael Clarke and Simon Katich to make much of an impression?

    I doubt it, even though he doesn't strike me as all that clued-up on his cricket history he must know that next to no-one had any more success than Hauritz has so far between Benaud's last hurrah and his own first hurrah in New Zealand in 1992/93.

    Funny, given they've yet to bowl on it.

    Really? Looks one hell of a lot like one to me.

    Shayne O'Connor?

    Never realised the great New Zealander took such an interest in Australian spin bowlers.

    Unfortunate for Hauritz that it was one of the two fingers important for him to bowl with. If that swelling doesn't go down, probably leaves Australia one bowler short for the rest of the match.

    This is a batting wicket mate - a belter.

    Stood behind the nets when Shayne was bowling in Brisbane one year. Thought he was sharp. The ball I remember him bowling would have hit me right between the eyes. Made me flinch despite the net being in the way.

    Just doing a fair bit of fitness at the moment. Probably should start with some batting soon.

    Cool.

    We're starting Sunday. I'm trying to co-ordinate somethign a bit better than what we've had in the past thie year. Got some bowling and batting external coaches coming down for sojme sessions, and the bloke who teches me martial arts is going to come down and beat up on some blokes for somethign different.

    Hopefully it'll get us back on track.

    One thing that always annoys me is that you don't do enough fielding work until the season starts. If you can get an open space (which in Melbourne is nigh on impossible during footy season) and combine fitness and fielding under duress.

    Yeah, we're giving it a go. Might be a few sore hands come Monday.

    What used to annoy me is that a team I used to play for didn't do any fielding training at all. For the whole season. And we were first grade. Then you get some ****ing idiot at point who never looks like taking a catch being persisted with because he looks like he can catch and there's noone better as none of us have done any fielding. We did have a brilliant session once with a guy from the Gold Coast Dolphins. Ran us off our feet. Only did it once though and then once it was up to the team captain and coaches we did nothing.

    In short, I think fielding is criminally neglected. Probably not so much at your level though Vic.

    I have to admit, I was surprised at all the pre-game work and work in training put in by the guys in sub-districts in Melbourne. Much much different to us. Most of my fielding work came from diving about in the creek catching tennis balls for hours on end. I think it may have been why I was decent in the gully/point area but pretty ordinary in the outfield.
