    Well if he was on the radio his identity is hardly a secret - tell us who he is.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Why yes, 16 wickets at 39.93 is very impressive, Andrew. Nowhere near as good as Hauritz's 14 at 26.07, that's for sure.
    Yep indeed

    Thought he was simply filling air time but now I'm not so sure
    And why are you unsure now?

    Why Johnson was dropped when they were just gonna bring him back after one test, and why Bollinger has missed out despite being our best bowler across all formats in the last 12 months...!?

    He might be still not 100%. He looked well, well, well short of match fitness in Adelaide

    Don't forget O'Keefe's 11 wickets from 2 matches at 18.45, to go with his 50+ batting average.

    Seriously, if the talent/potential wasn't there among Australian spinners, I wouldn't mind the selectors taking a punt on Beer. But there is something there but the selectors are too stubborn to admit they were wrong, in Hauritz's case, and too god-knows-what to pick O'Keefe.

    Not saying Hauritz is a world beater and the answer to all our spin problems mind you, but the bloke does have an impressive record at home for Australia, has performed well against England, and is clearly in form with both bat and ball. GAGF, Andrew Hilditch.

    Mmmm I dunno. From cricinfo.

    ----
    "Doug Bollinger has been omitted from the squad. Both Mitchell Johnson and Ben Hilfenhaus did not play in Adelaide but will be strongly considered for selection in the Perth Test match where conditions will suit them. Ryan Harris and Peter Siddle were the pick of our quicks at Adelaide Oval and these four make up the pace attack for the Perth Test match.
    ---

    He might have meant "3 of these 4 will make up the pace attack", but I still find it hard to believe they'll give a grade cricketer a baggy green.
    Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.

    Too many bones, not enough CASH!!

    How will "Perth conditions" suit Hilfenhaus's bowling?
