Cricket really is a funny game. South Africa are being made to look like the team full of rookies, while Australia’s performance over the past two matches make them look like a seasoned team. Especially Hughes. What a find he was! And to think that he was held back a year at least with Hayden sticking around.
Johnson is clearly the best bowler in the country now. Siddle is clearly number 2. Imagine how effective that attack will be when Stuart Clark comes back. But who to drop? Perhaps one of the all-rounders (North or McDonald). A hard choice that one. I always advocated a ‘keep your spot unless you deserve dropping’ policy. And no one really deserves dropping yet. Execpt maybe Mike Hussey – boy is he out of form.
