    He's coloured. He's not a black African though.

    Oh, it's poor. Just that I sincerely expected worse from the reaction.

    But not a pure black African and thats the joke of our government. But lets not get into politics on this thread.

    McClaren bowling pies again.

    I've always liked Shaun Marsh, I always wondered why he didn't get into the test squad earlier. Doesn't kick on at times like Watson but both good starters of an innings.

    Parny is bowling quick these days, mid 140's at times. Hit Pup in the abdomen, he is being tested physically is Pup.

    I can't recall too many long Clarke innings where he didn't get hit on the body/helmet/balls at least once.

    I hope to see 10 consecutive tests of a MJ and Siddle two pronged attack in the 2013 Ashes now.

    Why did Siddle miss the first two Tests against Sri Lanka?

    I don't see how he can't be picked for the first Test on the basis of a decent Ashes, a decent showing in his only Test in Sri Lanka and a good showing in this tour game. Harris aside, it's not like he's up against fellow quicks who have been pulling up trees.

    His ashes were pretty poor bar two good spells. He needs to sort his game out by being a bit more clever about his bowling, we know he's got the character to keep running in all day and giving 100%.
