Bowled England to victory against Australia at the Oval 2009 and Adelaide 2010.
Bowled England to victory with a 10fer against South Africa in Durban 2009 and was the highest wicket taker in the series with 21.
Bowled England to victory at the Oval against India in 2011 and made them look like tools as he took 20 wickets in the series away to India last winter.
Fair to say he's played his part more than enough when its mattered.
And anyone who says Aussie cricket has never been this low before wasn't around in the 1980s. That was far worse, I can assure you. Far, far, far worse.
I know exactly where hes coming from and have a pretty good idea how he feels, being a Liverpool fan i can relate with a lot of what he says, it can get thoroughly depressing, we all care but we are all different, this is just one way of looking at it and tbh hes spot on with most of it.
No discussion of Australian cricket in the 80s is complete without a mention of Simon Davis and Tony Dodemaide.
Blokes like Hughes, Warner, Khawaja and Smith probably fall into that category. It's definitely a wait and see thing with those blokes, for sure.
Have tipped Maddinson to make 5,000 plus test runs at 40+ some time back, which means he'll no doubt be out of the NSW side within 18 months. :-/

Joey Burns and and the Marsh brothers for me if they can pull their head in.
We love Patto cause he's a Victorian!
I think it's pretty clear now the older brother won't make it and the younger ones batting has gone down hill while in the Sheffield Shield.
Joe Burns? He's okay. But he's hardy going to be the knight in shining armour for that batting order.
You pretty much have to put a line through the last 10 years of batsmen. It's a lost generation.
khawaja, hughes, warner have plenty of potential
