    Antique Aussies

    Mike Selvey, in his Guardian column takes potshots at Australia recalling the likes of Martyn and Kasprowicz for the tests against South Africa. Australia is currently 2-1 down in the one-day series. He ends thus
    A friend in South Africa with the Australia team told me they soon won't be asking the Australian side for birth certificates, they'll want carbon dating.
    In the same column, he also declares his gut feeling that Alastair Cook could get 10,000 test runs.
    If all goes as it ought, Cook may well become the first Englishman to reach 10,000 runs.
    A huge claim, given Cook has just started his test career. Last year, Greg Matthews predicted that Kevin Pietersen would score 8,000 test runs!
