Australias new ball attack- 0/252

Australias replacement for Warne- 3/190

Yet in this run fest all Australias new opening batsman could manage was a massive 34

Great weekend for the Aussie team with only Hayden in the runs, yet that might be more indicative of the *****ouse attack he faced

But I must congratulate the retirement home XI on handing Katich the highest score ever at the SCG since Don Bradman in 1930

Great stuff from Katich.

His season with Derbyshire did contain a bit more attacking intent than we're used to seeing from him but I don't think anyone could have foreseen this.

Also interesting to note that a certain GB Hogg is having a fine game for WA at the moment...

I see you think Johnson will open with Lee. You may be right, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Clark open the bowling with Lee. Clark's 6/114 (at lunch today) looking pretty good on a track averaging >50 per wicket.

Has Clark ever opened? Doesnt seem wise to let the one bowler who doesnt rely on swing to get first use of the new balll

Big win for WA over the Vics.

Hogg finishing with 8 wickets for the match, as well as a 50 with the bat, to push his claims for a test spot ahead of MacGill. Although MacGill is probably still the frontrunner to be the Warnie replacement, I would think Hogg would have to be some chance given his stronger batting/fielding.

Brad Hodge looks to have blown any chance of making the Aussie team with another miserable failure in the Vics second innings. He may even get dropped from the Vic team the way he is going.

I think he opened a couple of times in South Africa, and has occasionally for NSW and done OK. Iíd rather Johnson opened, not because heíll necessarily do better than Clark, but more because Johnson doesnít seem to do much with the older ball. In fact a couple of times Iíve seen him bowl and as soon as the shine has gone heís been pretty docile.

I reckon the player who might really come under pressure this summer is Gilchrist. If he doesn't score some serious runs the selectors may well start looking at Haddin, particularly if the team as a whole struggles.

What was Katich's batting average in county cricket?
1284 runs at 75.52
highest score 221.
Must be a lot of empty retirement homes in England,thanks to county cricket.

No danger of him losing his spot for the Vics, still a couple of career failures to lose their spots first, really only WHite, Hodge and Hussey are safe in the top 7 and Jewell will get a couple more games due to his past couple of seasons

I reckon if that QLD/NSW had gone to six days, there still wouldn't have been a result.

Part of me thinks it's time to chuck young Wosser Williams and Rimmington in at the deep end, alongside Noffke and Simpson.

SA's new batting strategy seems to be finally coming together. Send in six guys to try and take some shine off the ball so the bowlers and keeper can score some runs.

Tassies title defence continues to get better as batting record after batting record fall on day 2 as the redbacks make more runs in 1 innings than they probably have in any match in the last 5 years

Manou and Gillespie set a new record for the redbacks 8th wicket

Manou makes his highest ever first class score with 190

Then the hack bowling attack throws away the advantage and Tassie will likely be in the lead before Tea tomorrow

118 for Gillespie, just how poor can the Tassie bowling be?

Hey don't under estimate old Dizzy's batting cabinboy. Since the start of the historic 2005 Ashes he's hit more than double the number of first class centuries than Flintoff has. He's also taken nearly 50% more wickets too

PS my avatar is scarier than yours.

That wouldn't be hard, Freddie couldn't cut it as a number 8 batsman at the moment. Dizzy's wicket-taking is interesting though, has he one final hurrah for the international side left in him? He's still young enough, same age as Stuart Clark and much more talented.

Once I get home, I'll be updating to the mother of all avatars.

Well I rather naughtily neglected to mention that Dizzy has bowled more than 50% more overs than Freddie though. Then again their bowling averages are pretty similar for that period.

Having watched Dizzy a little bit this season, I am starting to feel that he may have actually lost 'it'. He bowls the occasional good spell but in general his bowling doesnít seem to have any real menace. I keep hoping Iím wrong and that he will get his spark back, as you say he isnít really that old, but my hopes are fading. His only chance for further Test appearances seem to lie with MacGill going postal if he gets dropped at some stage during the summer.

Dizzy and 'wicket-taking' When's that happened then?

He's no longer international standard any more. Finito. Not even worth mentioning in the same breath as Clark.

He certainly didn't redeem himself at Yorkshire this summer, though I've still a sentimental soft spot for the gangly fellah.

This might sound like heresy, but I also wonder how long Clark will last as an international bowler, 2009 at the latest.

I think Gillespie would probably have more chance of being recalled to the Aussie test team as a batsmen rather than a bowler at the moment. Who knows, Dizzy may even sneak past Jaques, Rogers & Hodge to take the opening position alongside Hayden. He could then maybe even bowl a few overs of his medium pacers too, just to give the proper bowlers a rest occasionally.

In further good news for the Aussie team, neither of the players trying to take the 3rd or 4th bowling spots in the team managed to do anything so far in 2 days despite Ponting overbowling Hilfenhaus he still couldnt perform and Tait has bowled more no balls than runs scored by half the SA batsmen
