    If you could change one thing...

    ...and it had no implications on the future whatsoever, what would it be?It can be personal, or the old "I would would stop a disaster" speech.

    I'd force Shane Warne's mum to have an abortion. Which would have an implication on the future though.
    Or something.

    What'd be the point in changing something if i didn't have any implications?

    Obviously he means it wouldn't change everything, which is obviously what would actually happen if you went back in time and changed anything

    I personally would either:

    a - make sure Mark Bosnich got sent-off at Villa Park, Feb 27th 94
    b - man-mark Matt Elliott just after we'd equalised at Wembley, Feb 27th 2000
    or c - Kindap Brian Little before the away leg of the play-offs in 05, and make sure his replacement plays 4-4-2

    Move the ball away from Glenn McGrath before Edgbaston (and place it next to Flintoff)

    Several occurrences in my life could be changed for the better but I'll think of one you can relate to...injure Johnny Wilkinson some time in late 2002.

    Flintoff would have seen it, picked it up and moved it, and instead of McGrath, Warne would have stood on it. 4-1 England.

    People did go out to injure him with heavy tackles during the WC after realising that he was actually pretty good at kicking.

    I meant when people say they would change something, something else would have to happen worse than that Like the asian tsunami or 9/11. I mean that you can change something and nothing else would have to replace it.

    Australia lost a test with Warne playing. They never lost a test in which McGrath played.
