    McGrath warned by Trevor Hohns

    National Selection Panel Chairman Trevor Hohns has a selection warning or his international career may come to a close. Well that is the impression I got from this article.

    I would say McGrath will be picked v Sri Lanka and they will take it from there.

    Although I can imigine the outcry if McGrath is suddenly axed, which will mean goodbye Test and ODI career.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Personally, I don't see him getting axed. He'll be back.

    I reckon it has a lot to do with what the article says, firing him up.
    I mean seriously, to axe someone after what is effectively one very short ODI series is harsh, let alone doing it to a champion.

    I really want to beleive that.

    But this is the same selection panel that axed Michael Bevan from the contracted player list only a few months ago.

    THEY CAN'T BE TRUSTED!!!

    True..
    But its also the same panel that kept Damien Martyn after a long, lean VB series who followed it up with consecutive centuries in Sri Lanka!!

    THEY ARE MAGNIFICENT!!

    It always comes back to Marto, doesn't it.

    Let's see how magnificent they are when they decide Marto's too old, and that won't be too far away.

    Because at 32 he's almost pushing up the daisies!

    What did you think to Northey's barnstorming 6 off 45 balls against Scotland, then?

    Weren't we told by Dennis Lillee the other week that McGrath was going to come back as the greatest fast bowler the world's ever seen?

    Exactly what I was thinking. I was so disappointed, too - he took up a good 15 points in my Fantasy Cricket squad. Bastard.

    And Clarke's low 20's FC average so far!
