Is six enough for North to get six?
In the place which, of all places with a serious cricket ground, has the name which is the most fun to say, the Australians have made the last day of a warm-up match reasonably exciting. Appearently the quality of the opposition is not that high, and the pitch didn't seem to give much for a couple of leg-spinners, but Marcus North has certainly not disappointed Peter Roebuck's faith in him as an Australian no. 6, either in batting or bowling. Of course, if that doesn't work out, then I still think moving Katich down the opener and choosing a better opener would be better than pursuing the strange allrounder obsession.
