Australia 349
Haddin 69
Hauritz 65
Katich 49
Lee 47
Clarke 45

Sussex
Lee 3/53, 13.2
Clark 3/46, 15
Siddle 2/33, 15

Interesting with Lee and Clark up there. Would not mind them at all going with Lee/Clark/Johnson/Siddle and leaving Hilfy out. Course, there's no selectors

Hughes 68* at lunch. The kid is good.

I take back any reservations I may have had about Hughes. What a superstar.

The other story was so far half the balls we've bowled have been no-balls... reminds of the 04 summer series against India when Lee went for about 500 and half of them were no-balls...

Another day and Sussex could have won that game 181 to get in a day's cricket with six wickets in hand...

A few positives can be taken out of that. No-balls etc are never really forgiveable, but i suppose you look at Clark and Lee who haven't played competitive cricket in months (20-20 doesnt count).

Lee took 4 wickets, siddle bowled well, and hopefully, with Hauritz performance, they play 4 quicks and leave Hilfenhaus out.

Can't see Hauritz getting a game on the back of that. We are going to be fucked with this spinner situation.

Just as an interesting side note, Krejza made a ton for Aus A

And got totally spanked when he bowled.

If we are looking for a spinner based on batting potential, no question that it's Casson, but I won't open that door again, I'll just make myself angry!

Or not. What Test will you play 3 spinners in? England's spinners are rubbish anyway. Have a history of poor records against us (Tufnell, Such, Croft, Giles)

And just quietly, between Katich, North and Clarke they have guys who on their day can be as devastating as any test spinner. You can be sure that in any test, at least one will be firing.

Giles did his job in the 05 series.

Katich is better than Clarke. And Clarke is more than handy. Clarke is much better than PIEterson.
