Seems a number of our players are coming down with very mild injuries just after milestones.
Still, very happy to see North in some form with the bat and ball.
Johnson to get robbed of a ton by time here.
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!
I think this game could have pretty much ensured a spot in the XI for North in the first test, 50's in both the innings, and six wickets to go with it, if he doesn't get picked after that, then he should consider himself very unlucky.
All in all, this game proved to be a very good workout for the Aussie boys, almost every batsman made some runs and spent some time out there in the middle, and the bowlers too seemed to have gotten themselves into better rhythm as the game progressed.
Obviously Clarke' availability is still a worry, and has it been revealed why McGain and Siddle didn't bowl in the 2nd innings, because it makes no sense for them not to bowl and get some valuable practice under the belt, unless of course they are struggling with an injury or something
EDIT: Never mind... just read about it.

I have not seen Marcus North of course. But regardless of this performance do you Australians think he is off-spinners is good enough for him to a decent defensive option in test. Thus allowing the 4 quicks to play?? (Since 3 quicks plus McGain is too risky)
As much as I personally don't rate McGain, anything other than
would be pretty silly imo. Have posted this same line-up since the middle of the summer aswell.
