Enough Mark Taylor bashing; Hayden's time will come, but
after the seniors retire... perhaps in 5 years time we might
see a batting line-up for Australia like:
Then again, a lot can happen in 5 years...
But on to other matters; I'm curious as to what the general
consensus is on who's the best off-spinner in cricket today. Terrible
Tim May? Venkatapathy Raju? Peter (cough) Such (he IS an offie isn't he?)?
Carl Hooper or Roger Harper? Dipak (haha) Patel? Or that bowler from
Sri Lanka whose name I can't seem to recall. When was the last time
an off-spinner took 5 or more wickets in a test match anyhow?
Actually, Australia could well do with Greg Matthews, now that
he's got his hair transplant; watching Greg frolick in the ocean in those
Advanced Hair Studio ads makes me wonder how many wickets he'd bag ;P
It's always good to drop the story of the episode of Star Trek when Kirk
and Spock come back to the earth of the 60s. Finding a big old reel-to-
reel computer, they say 'Look, a primitive computer'. You can note smugly
that we can now agree with them.
