But he didn't bowl any in the Sheffield Shield match after the club match.

And he got a five for and a ton in it. But that doesn't mean he's in form, I'll say that.

I'm not sure that's he's ever actually in form.

And I wish he'd keep his mouth shut, we all know he doesn't actually believe anything that he says.

For the record.

Out of that 11 wides there was a 5 wides. There might also have been a 4 wides, but the reports seem unclear. The rest of his innings returned 1/13 off 10 overs.

Was that five wides as in so wide that a keeper standing 30 yards away couldn't reach it?

But feel free to come back and hammer me when he gets a bagful on day one at brissie!

I am with you sir

Mitch has been very vocal this week considering his record against England. I hope he gets his short ball tactics wrong and plays it right into Strauss' cut and pull areas so we can watch the runs pour in.

I saw your blog linked on wicket to wicket and i like your content.

Please look at my blog www.thesportingpolitician.blogspot.com for my spin on the latest sporting issues

I once played in a match in which a bowler took 5 for 5 off 5 overs, with 5 wides coming off one ball which went under the keeper.
