    It's obviously good whenever you get a top order wicket, but here I was thinking he set up Sinclair for the first 5 balls bowling off spin, saw a flaw (one of many) in his technique and decided to bowl the last ball with his medium pacers, now that would have been great.

    Don't think bowling 5 balls to the lefty and then changing the plan for the righty is quite as amazing.

    Shame his peak was towards the end. Type of cricketer who was good for the game - crazy **** with his hair.
    They weren't looping, they were fast and spat.

    Sorry you are correct - I more meant that due to his high arm action it gave the impression he was getting plenty of drop on the ball.

    He genuinely is. Nobody else can bowl spin so he's well above them - plus he can bat as well as lead. The fact that he's elite relative to others in his field by a margin of more than any other domestic cricketer makes him so, I reckon.

    Anyone who's actually better than him or so gets called up to the national team, obv.

    Wasn't Miller also able to bowl with both hands? I'm sure I remember hearing about him bowling left handed in either first class or grade cricket?

    Yup, could bowl decently with both hands, and bat as well.
