>cameron white for one. couldnt do any worse than Simmo, and he does bowl
CL White 5 9 1 301 63 37.62 - 1
CL White 5 93.3 14 331 10 33.10 3-48 - -
in addition if a pitch suggests that we can play 2 spinners then
MacGill must be ahead of White so unless you want to drop Warne from
him that doesn't give a real option for the attack in most cases.
If you picked White for Sydney the attack would be
McGrath, Lee, Warne, MacGill, Warne.
Not really nice if you have to bowl first.
Not to mention that he was bowling absolute dross in the only matches
I've seen or followed his bowling this summer (admittedly one dayers
rather than first class)
White seems to have really hurt himself as a captain, it looks to me
like he doesn't really want to bowl himself much and he's not good
enough with the bat to really justify being picked for Aus.
He's averaging under 2.5 wickets a match in first class cricket and I
think it's gone down since he was captain.
>( technique wise ) , symonds has never looked solid, always flashy.
Sydney with Watson coming back for the tour to South Africa.
