    MacGill must tour India - Ganguly

    Read here

    If MacGill is left out, that is it I doubt he would have much of a Test career left (if he does have one).

    It will be the interesting who the 4th bowler will be in Tests, as Warne, Gillespie, and McGrath are certainties (barring injury) for the first Test.

    Three quicks and one spinner, or two quicks and two spinners?

    He is just saying that because he wants some easy runs.

    Kasprowicz would have to get the nod on current form you'd think, as well as his performances in the subcontinent in the past - he's bowling better than ever now too which helps. I don't think Lee and the subcontinent would be a good mix! haha

    I don't think Lee and Test-matces are a good mix - he didn't even manage to average under 30 against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.
    Though it would be nice to see him playing in some or all of the India games - more 40-210-4s would be great viewing.

    That I think and the typical Ganguly wind-up tactics, pretending to try and influence opposition selection.

    I have no doubt MacGill will be selected. I can't see any replacement for him (exceot for Craig White ) It would be foolish to tour the sub-continent with just one spinner.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Sorry, Waughney, Chalky's an honoury Englishman - just because you brought him up, he hasn't forgotten his heritage. Anyway, he only bowls spin on occasional balls, and at about 70mph.
    If, on the other hand, you meant Cameron White I can see why you're laughing.

    Oops yeah sorry, Cameron White. I think I was also thinking of Craig (who started this thread) and his post.

    Craig will doubtless be honoured to be thought-of in such high esteem!
    Though he does prefer being compared to his namesake for his surname (Courteney).

    You're welcome to him.

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Well, his early tests would suggest otherwise, but unfortunately it's been a long time since we've seen anything that even vaguely resembles that form.

    australia will be better of playing four seamer aganist india
    Macgrath,gillespie,kasp,lee will be good enough for an out of form indian side
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Something which suggests those early Tests are long gone.
    A 3-year period (30 matches) which have produced an average of 38.42 suggests to me a very, very average bowler and one who is a different prospect to the one in his first 7 games.
    Or maybe it was just beginner's luck. That's my guess. I don't see how someone so terrible could once have been good enough to deserve an average of 16.

    If, that is, they're out of form - a line-up that good cannot conceivably be out-of-form for that long.
