MacGill back in the mix

Previous posts on Australian cricket have highlighted the Test opening partnership as one area of concern. But how about Stuart MacGill's return to the Test arena?

I'm glad the wine-loving leggie is back and free from the burdens of having to cope second fiddle to that other leg-spinner of some repute.

MacGill needs two more victims for 200 Test wickets if he is picked for his 41st Test. Warne made the landmark in his 42nd Test, which goes to show just how good MacGill was and what could have been if Australia had picked two spinners more frequently.

What are your thoughts on MacGill's career? To give you a recap, here he is mowing through England in 1998/99.
