    I think Aus should play Warne and Macgill in tandem as of now?

    Gillespie didn't do anything again, and it isn't as though Kaspa looks particularly frightening of late on this tour.

    Macgill has had success against England in the past although granted not so much on the last Ashes tour. It's pretty obvious England still look suspect against this type of bowling and I wouldn't just wait for the Old Trafford and Oval tests before bowling them both together.

    I think the greater turn of Macgill, combined with his good googlys might have a shock value. Like Warnes slider it way well cause alot of problems because it's a delivery England aren't used to since Warne doesn't bowl it.

    The two of them also have had good recent success when operating in the same side. Even if one doesn't fire, invariably the other one has a very good match.

    Couldn't this have been put in the Ashes thread like most people have managed so far but you don't seem to have grasped?

    That's what I did now.

    And yet another old fart was p1ssing and moaning about that too.

    No coincidence that they're all English and are banging their heads against their moniters because their desperate rain dances didn't pay off.

    Maybe it would be more interesting if they bowled whilst riding a tandem.

    Macgill will come in for the 3rd test they reakon, the 2nd will be better for the quicks, that said, Macgill is a bigger turner than Warne so you never know.

    Macgill won't play until there's a real turner at Old Trafford. If they wish to drop Gillespie, which I don't think they do, they'll bring in Kasprowicz.

    I'd love to see Tait get a go, but he won't.

    I agree.

    I think they'll adopt the "dont change a winning team" philosophy and point to the fact that Gillespie only bowled 12 overs.

    MacGill should play a test or two but history shows that Warne is more effective without him so dont expect changes overnight.

    it doesnt matter if warne isnt as effective. Its just that MacGill usually gets more wickets then warne when they are together which isnt a bad thing for the team
