    Itbt there's not a great deal of need for him, but if they're insistent on playing a batting all-rounder at 8 he's definitely the option over McDonald.

    Exactly what I was implying tbph. That said North is still relatively unproven and if he fails for the rest of the series I can imagine them taking Watson as long as he can prove his bowling is functioning.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Hmm. Even if he does fail for the next five innings, I can't imagine they'd drop him after that. Not unless a horrid and obvious weakness is radically exposed. The century he scored yesterday was just that good, coming under pressure in bowler-friend conditions against a quality attack etc. etc...

    Playing like the ruthless aussie of old, not saying they are going to be great again but just gives me bone chilling memories

    I never said they'd drop him. Taking Watson as back up if he isn't scoring in the Ashes is what I meant.

    Poor ****ers in Soweto have had so much rain it has been described as a disaster zone which requires immediate aid. Lets go rain!

    Ahh. Yeah, I'd hope he goes to the Ashes too.

    Australia should definately enforce the follow-on if given the choice imo. The inevitable rain means we don't have much time and the breaks will keep the bowlers fresh.

    Don't think we will bowl them out quick enough to enforce the follow on.

    That's right folks, a de Villiers century and and a Steyn on the wall to ruin our day.
    Inappropriate signature.

    What an unusual prediction from you.

    That edged ball that Haddin intercepted from North was an absolute beauty.

    Can't see it happening, although it's nearly a 50-50 call. Would prefer aggressive 2nd innings target setting and let loose the fresh quicks. Can't be influenced by weather forcasts with 2+days to go. If its rained out, then it would be rained out either way. cheers

    I haven't made any predictions before this genius.
