Ain't Missing You At All

Lost in all the ongoing uproar over what Harbie said to Andrew, is quite how Australia managed to bowl out a pretty decent Indian side in two sessions on a pitch that was far from the fifth day beast you often get at the SCG.

One question often posed after Shane Warne retired was 'who would the Aussies have to bowl sides out in the fourth innings?' - the suggestion being that the Baggy Green would henceforth merely draw, or even lose, tests they had previous won (Adelaide 2006 for example or any number of other examples over the past decade)

Well, the answer to both questions seems to be 'two part-time spin bowlers with less than thirty test wickets between them.' A Scouser, and a Brummie no less!
