Well I have decided that I will put my hat in Australia’s ring this week, despite the apparent turmoil over selection and form. I have decided to go early after reading comments Steve Harmison made on UK radio last week.
“I would personally go with Ajmal Shahzad, because the WACA ground is a lot like Headingley, because you bowl a lot shorter.”
Now this would go some way to explaining why Steve took 6 wicket bowling in 3 innings at the WACA and gave away just 250 runs. Commendably he took 4/48 in one innings, including the prize double of Stuart Clark and Glen McGrath, who made 4 between them, although I am not sure if they plundered them all off Steve.
With any luck the England bowlers will take Steve’s advice.
