    Mcgrath the greatest........batsman?

    http://content.cricinfo.com/engvaus/...ry/216164.html

    Well done, he's really improved his batting and deserves this title imo... Your opinions?

    McGrath said that he was now looking for a batting promotion "I have been into Ricky [Ponting] again today to say I need to be moved up the order," he said. "He is still resisting the temptation so obviously I will be back to 11 again in the next Test."

    McGrath has worked hard on his batting over the past two years, and now has a Test half-century to show for it. He is also yet to be dismissed in the Ashes. "When I came off, I actually asked the boys what it's like to get out in this series,"


    Good stuff, Pidge.

    The number of matches probably allows him to be considered the best number 11.

    he is ok.

    He needs to change his batting stance with that batting stance no body will ever think of him as a proper number 11 batsman.
    Bob is very insane stay away from him

    FAVOURITE UNDER 19 CRICKETER JP McNamara AKA ORTHODOX

    I think I read about this the other day. Wasn't the guy he replaced for this title Courtney Walsh?

    'Cause he was one of the most hilariously inept number 11's I've ever seen. His height didn't help, though.

    Yes, a bit like the Fleming congratulations for 6000 really.

    Fleming is playing his 96th test, McGrath played like 111 tests or something

    Fleming would be my pick, if McGrath had an ankle injury and the game was against another World XI

    Walsh played 130 odd tests to reach 519. In terms of NZ cricket it is a milestone worth remembering. McGrath has been a great bowler over many years.

    Both have been consistent imo.

    Just to talk Cricket, without our new friends interupting, I was thinking of some poor No11s Chatfield of NZ; I remember at one stage he had taken more wickets than he had scored runs.
    You know it makes sense.
