Default I feel for McGill

He is a better bowler than Warne.

"He is a better bowler than Warne."

Current AUS-PAK 3rd test:

Warne: 22 Overs 1 for 84
McGill : 24 Overs 5 for 87

MacGill isn't in the same league as Warne, if you see how many wickets he's taken with longhops and his economy rate must be pretty high. MacGill got Afridi yesterday with a fulltoss and he cannot catch. MacGill could also bat at number 11 now behind McGrath. Arnab did say better bowler but there's no way MacGill would ever make the team ahead of a full fit, not suspended Warne.

MacGill is a wicket taking bowler and his strike rate compares with the best. It takes a midas touch to be able to claim wickets even with bad deliveries. Botham was one such bowler who claimed countless wickets with bad deliveries. Why bother about the 'class' of the bowler as long as he claims wickets at a good strike rate.

Warne is a legspinner with accuracy.

McGill is a wicket-taking legspinner.

Me, I'd put Kaspa back in for Watson, and play both of 'em. Gilly's good enough to bat at six, and it gives us an excuse to put McGrath up the order to number ten.

Actually, whenever McGill and Warne played together, McGill always took more wickets than Warne. With a better strike rate.

Say,

Warne is getting older, and less deadly. His big turners dont turn a much any more, and his bowling has less bite in general.

But he's still that rarest of birds - an accurate leg spinner.

McGill is a bowler in the tradition of Mailey - an innacurate leggie who turns the ball a lot, and buys wickets.

But I dont think it's 'Warne or MacGill'. I think it's 'Lehmann or both'.

And, me, I'll take both.

Both Sachin and Sehwag are in the playing XI whereas McGill gets to play when Warne is not available, so there can be no comparison between the two sets of players.

Who is a better bowler than Warne? Are you kidding me? Does anyone out here know about the "art" of wrist spin? They wouldn't be saying that if they knew!

Warne is one of the best spin bowlers of all time, he is more consistant than MacGill who can produce a wicket taking ball, but will bowl a loose one, but Warne will hardly bowl a losse ball.

But McGill's economy rate is not bad at all.

Sometimes, but being an Aussie I have seen him bow a few loose spells this year but he has taken wickets.
