I thought he was going to be dropped. He's form of late has been very disappointing.

"The total number of AFL club members equates to one in every 28 Australians"

Raiderdave says "the AFL only attracts 3.5 Million more spectators to games then the NRL and has only 400K more members"

1. Gillespie's form - clearly he is not the bowler he once was. Luckily for us, McGrath and Warne were exceptional, however, if we need to rely on them so much throughout the series we will struggle. The other bowlers need to chip in for wickets. If they continue to persist with him (Gillespie) it may prove costly. Again, simply to replace him with Kasper may not be a solution as he too is struggling.

2. The failure of many batsman to find form - Hayden is a passenger and it seems he has done his own head in. Ponting is not as good as he was 2 years ago and Gilchrist has reverted back to tip-n-run cricket he played in the backyard as an 8 year old. Even though I hate to say it, Langer was a better commodity when he grafted an innings rather than play the aggressor as he is doing now.

3. I believe England dropped 7 catches with at least 3 of them proving very costly. If the catches stick in future tests we will need to improve.
How insightful was I after Australia's first test victory at Lords? Everything I have said has proven to be 100% correct - again! :cool:
