first siddle stops eating meat and now he starts plugging books

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
I'm very slowly, reluctantly accepting Kallis brilliance as a Test Cricketer. Still cringe a little whenever I hear his ODI credentials being talked about as brilliant though.
With the wicket of Amla, Siddle now is level with Johnny Briggs.
In the modern era he's obviously compared with Lara/Tendulkar/Ponting. I think it's simply a case that most fans (massive assumption) would rather see any of the others come to the crease for entertainments sake.
Patto's second spells so often more menacing than his first on a given day.
I think I can now realise he's in the top two or three cricketers of all time, but it's really been hard for me, because I'm a purist ****.
I had similar problems with Glenn McGrath, I think I did a list of 20 best fast--bowlers here, and didn't include him, but now I've come to accept his performances at a time when almost all other pacers struggle are exceptional.

I reckon Australia are value at whatever long odds you can get. This is one of those games where the situation works against the team batting first because they have to be very dominant to win. Australia only have to get within 50-100 runs of South Africa and they will have a better chance of winning than the tourists.
Decent first over from Lyon there.
Listening to this conversation I really want someone to remember the 2005 Old Trafford Ashes Test where Mcgrath had Vaughan dropped. The next ball he bowled him off a no-ball and he went on to make a big ton
