Robertson and George weren't much chop though.

    I'm not sure why Warne didn't play the match listed, but he played most of the rest of the series.

    EDIT: And I'm sure that MacGill was lurking behind the scenes somewhere as well.
    Not by 1995 IIRC.

    That's pretty farcical from Australia.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Steyn looks so rapid today, yet he's only clocking in 135ish.
