Well that was good !
He did exactly what everyone was saying he would, do bowl tight , bowl economically , tie up one end, put pressure on the batsman to score at the other end, move it around a bit and pick 2 to 3 wickets at a good price !
One run off the first 3 overs, exactly want we have needed all series.
Personally I was stunned when he wasn't selected for the first test.
I have been scouring the media for the justification for not playing him,the reasons I've have read and heard have been :
He had lost a yard of pace - So just how fast did Glen McGrath bowl ?
He wasn't the bowler he was.- then why was he picked or why wasn't he sent home when this was "found out" !
He is the same type of bowler as Siddle, no point having two of the same in the team -
this a contradiction to above he is not as fast or as likely to stray and he moves the ball more.
This is just silly stuff, even Micheal Holding trotted out the line about him lacking a yard of pace. 90 wickets @ 22 Who cares how fast he is, it's wickets that count ?
He has been Australia's best bowler since McGrath and Warne retired. And yet it was as if he was a potential liability.
I almost felt sorry for him. A professional sportsman on a paid holiday in the UK
Congratulations to him... and to the selectors for finally waking up to themselves
