    Don't think Victoria's bowling will be at full strength - we have an aging attack as it is, and there will possibly be two debutants playing (one a bowler, Herrick, one a batsman, Keath).

    Should be interesting conditions. Either disgustingly hot, or rained out.

    Hopefully a couple of Victorian bowlers do their bit for Australia and make sure they fully utilise their quota of 2 beamers per innings.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Was interesting reading over the Swann argument earlier in this thread.
    "I am very happy and it will allow me to have lot more rice."

    Yeah, Aussies didn't think he would do much but i knew he'd be the man to win us a game at some stage. Might do it in Sydney too and i guess the extra bounce will help in Perth.

    The guy won tests in South Africa, now Australia.

    He's a gun. Possibly the best bowler in the world, and easily the best spinner in the world. Time people just accept it.

    Agree with that Jono, says a lot about him that he got a 5 for in his 2nd test down under when Murali never got one. I know the batting was better in Murali's day but still a decent performance by Swanny.

    His average for the series so far is 35.77, which is very good for Australia, however the series isn't close to over yet and he had some very favourable conditions to bowl in for the last days in Adelaide. I don't think anyone though is really denying he is the best spinner in the world.

    A spinners reputation can go downhill VERY quickly, rightly or wrongly.

    He's had favourable conditions and also just about the worst conditions a spinner can bowl in.
