    Won't be McGain I think - more likely McDonald, which is a shame for him.

    Dougie gets three - interesting battle between he and Horseymouth for the last pace spot.

    #408. Sixty three not out forever.

    I reckon both McGain and McDonald will miss out at Jo'burg, however I expect McGain to come in for the remaining two tests.

    Cape Town is meant to be conducive to spin. The President's team is not so hot after all.

    Gotta laugh at the reactionary comments by the vast majority of posters in this thread. Nice to see the same trusted heads staying sensible.

    North with six - fantastic. Hopefully someone other than me might start to rate his bowling now.

    I actually made a longer post about his bowling a while back but the dire new search function won't find it for me.

    Actually the XI just went on a declaration charge cause they wanted to make a game of it. North was in the right place at the right time, and Australia are still poor. Check out the cricinfo commentary on his wickets:

    22.2 McGain to Petersen, FOUR, another beautiful cover drive.
    22.3 McGain to Petersen, OUT, Gone, missed this time and hits middle.
    AN Petersen b North 36 (73m 49b 8x4 0x6) SR: 73.46

    36.1 North to Wiese, OUT, attempts to go over the top. Hauls out at mid-off.
    D Wiese c Bollinger b North 18 (25m 17b 4x4 0x6) SR: 105.88

    36.4 North to van der Merwe, OUT
    RE van der Merwe c Johnson b North 1 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
    36.5 North to Imran Tahir, SIX, first ball goes over the top.

    38.4 North to Imran Tahir, SIX, huge one into the stands
    38.5 North to Imran Tahir, OUT, Hauls out at midwicket.
    Imran Tahir c sub (MEK Hussey) b North 16 (8m 8b 1x4 2x6) SR: 200.00

    40.6 North to Kuhn, OUT, hauls out at deep mid-wicket.
    HG Kuhn c sub (MEK Hussey) b North 47 (75m 57b 8x4 0x6) SR: 82.45

    I'm afraid you Aussies may be overreacting in the opposite way this time

    That's not a huge wrap.

    Haha, likewise I tried to find some posts of mine on North, but the search function the first few times said I'd never even mentioned him in a post. (Y)

    Marcus North is one of my favourite players and I think he's the best option at six for Australia, partly because he has useful offies which are very hard to get away. I said 'fantastic'. How is that over-reacting? Pretty much no-one rates his bowling on this forum, so regardless of when they came, it proves he has the ability to bowl well.
