    Now if you had said Ricky didn't want him, I could come at that. His post Adelaide comments would give a fair indication to that line of thinking, and I think we can agree Hilditch isn't a fan, but then Hilditch is a dope. That would explain why he isn't in the side now and why he only got the last contract behind guys like Smith, Cummins and Pattinson. However all of them, Ponting, Hilditch, Cox, Chappell and Nielsen are now no longer relevant to the question. And for good reason. It could take a while as the new selection panel hasn't even been put in place yet, but I'm pretty confident the "Doug is unfit and lazy" meme will be put to bed soon enough. The incumbent bowlers in the side won't get the same same kid gloves treatment they've enjoyed over the last few years so they'd better perform or he'll be right in line to replace them.
    Why would you think he had something to do with the selections?

    nothing like Johnson. But it just got me excited watching it again and wanted to share. Was looking for a vid of seam movement but that was more exciting

    A bad Siddle is never as bad as a bad Johnson. He's in a class of his own in that regard

    Do you seriously think Ponting's opinion didn't carry any weight in the selection committee? He might not have got a vote, but his wishes would certainly have been sought and given serious weight.

    Good luck with that. The only one I can remember is in the 1st Test Ashes 2009 when he got out Collingwood. He gets most his wickets by pushing the batsman back and then bowling a straight fast full one. He has lost that fear factor recently though.

    If Australia play well they could beat South Africa in South Africa.

    The Aussies are a good team, but they are easily beatable as England have shown time and again.

    England have the discipline and class to frustrate and bully the Australian flair players, whereas South Africa don't have as many players with those qualities, they rely on a lot of flair, power and pace too.

    If South Africa try and fight fire with fire, they will get humbled again by the Aussies.

    Siddle is so frustrating because he has all the makings of a great fast bowler. He's fast, can do a bit with the ball and has a good amount of aggro to him. It's so frustrating that he just does not seem to have the consistency he needs at the test level.

    All he really needs to do is have a look at all of his big hauls in test cricket and he'll see that he is at his best when he pitches the ball up. He needs to do that more often and the big hauls will come.

    Saffers are only a good touring team but a mediocre home team who always choke at home, I predict an easy win for us.

    Whats new, a pom talking themselves up when they've only breifly been at the top and at this moment its only test cricket for now. And how it has been some time since you have even been at the top for any period.

    Don't be too surprised to see yourselves fall flat on your faces and then looking to get more foreigners into your team.
