    All true. But the selectors could still have a change of mind, as i said his bowling could be useful.

    You know why Tait isn't on tour?

    Saw him last night at the state awards dinner, mention was made of his injuries a few times so I'd suggest the tendonitis is still affecting him. Realistically, he'd have been in the SA Shield Side if it wasn't.

    As much as I love watching him bowl in full flight, he shouldn't be anywhere near green and gold colours until he gets some overs in a red cap.

    Gillespie calls for Johnson to be rested

    Makes sense IMO. Look at the bigger picture here, and with all due respect to Pakistan, who cares about a few ODIs in Abu Dhabi and Dubai when you can give him a proper break and win the Ashes. Lets me honest, would any Australian fans really give a **** Australia lost a few meaningless ODIs (although the media would paint a different story)? I wouldn't.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Because he can't maintain his form for an entire innings

    He is very very much under the minimum standard for fielding in the Aus ODI team

    Offers absolutely nothing to the batting card

    When he's not ripping through lineups and scaring the begeesus out of them (I'd say 1 quarter of games), he's bowling very expensive tripe (3 quarters of games)

    Showing my complete n00b status here, why is Shaun Marsh's nickname Stan Darsh? I feel as though I have missed an in-joke/reference somewhere

    Kallis is injured but they hope he will be back for Sunday's game at Centurion. Good to see 3 real seamers get the gig but not sure about Ntini over Parnell. His record at Kingsmead is rank.

    Yeah, not sure about Ntini in ODIs. They've trusted the erratic one. In an article yesterday he said he was reconsidering his cricket career and may study instead.

    No, it came from the Pretoria News on March 31st. I guess he hasn't got the drive others like Botha and Harris (who make the most of limited ability) and has other priorities. If you have perennial radar and no ball problems cricket isn't much fun. SA has Parnell and Tsotsobe for the future so you've still got some promising young pacemen in the wings.

    Yeah I figured he must still have had injury problems otherwise he'd be there. Shame really, especially given how awesome he was in the 07 WC
