    Who will be Australia's new spinner?

    Ok so warney has hung his boots we all know that but who will fill his void now, McGill is short term solution but after that things look tough cullen and bailey are good at domestic level but international cricket is different ,white is not a spinner, hauritz,casson,simpson,doran are not even in contention so you see we have a problem there, certainly ozi's can't even imagine about global domination without one or maybe two good spinners.

    White seemed to be the most popular choice http://forum.cricketweb.net/showthread.php?t=21406
    You know it makes sense.

    white is just a warne wannabe

    YEAH he is just that i mean look at him uses the same sponsors bat as warne, tries to walk into his action ala warne but he can't put any power in his bowling action this way coz only warney can do it so he jumps at the crease i mean ok he is blond and a victorian but he is no warne even kumble spins it more than him

    Are you criticizing a bowler because he's trying to follow in the footsteps of possibly the greatest spinner of all time?

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    You posted in a duplicate thread. The thread was deleted.

    Had there been any serious posts in the thread, it would have been left.

    white should have his own style and identity rather than trying to be like someone else.

    You're aware that Brian Lara is a right-hander to batted left-handed to emulate Roy Fredericks, right? There's nothing wrong with patterning yourself after greatness.

    I'm sure there are hundreds of blonde Victorians. Doesn't make them Warne wannabes. I personally don't see alot of Warne in White's action.

    So, if I'm short, right handed and have a soft voice I can be Tendulkar then?

    There may be panic now, but another demon child of spin will arise by 2009.

    I daresay he will arise IN 2009. On January 22nd to be exact. He shall bowl his first Test over on that day and have a wicket by the end of it. If not, I'll eat Richard's regurgitated computer.

    It will take a while for a quality spinner to emerge I just hope that Australia put to much pressure on the relatively new ones to emulate Warnes performances when they are probably not the same quality. Macgill is the best replacement for Warne in the meantime.

    Which sauce would you prefer with the computer ?

    So white getting a test wicket thats a pretty daring bet you have just made so you will have a great time munching into the computer. As for whitey i like him he is good bloke but needs to realise that he needs to get his spin bowling right . He should work with warney and mr.jenner that would help,warne said he will open a spin academy in england but before that he needs to get blokes(spinners) in country going.
