Reckon that having Hauritz at 9 was a luxury that allowed them to play McDonald at 6. Hauritz is good enough to bat at 8. However, if McGain takes Hauritz's place, then this may make it hard for the selectors to include McDonald.
Now the flip-side of this is, McDonald is most likely to hold his place at no.6, which i am not too chuffed about either, he might be a steady bowler, but he is hardly a batsman who can bat in the top 6 of a test team.
Ponting, Langer, Martyn, Symonds all played out of their natural positions early in their careers.
CA has taken a really brave decision to leave Roy out!
Marcus North should get chance ahead of McDonald in SAF but yeah South African wickets will help the seamers more than Aussie wickets...it will be interesting to see who is picked for the tour.
