    Let's go back to Warne

    Ray Chesterton, undoubtedly deeply agonized by Australia's current series of losses, has emphatically demanded that the best way to stem the rot is to bring back Shane Warne.

    He sounds pretty desperate, actually. Sample these lines:The reference to Australia's bowlers is timely. The Bladder had something similar today in an obviously tongue-in-cheek report titled Buchanan 'within days of pinpointing Aussie problems'.
    Buchanan said he would continue his investigation after lunch, which Shane Watson, Nathan Bracken, Mitchell Johnson, Shaun Tait, Brad Hogg, Adam Voges and Cameron White were bringing back from the bakery. "Pies again, fellas?" Buchanan said. "Ah well, let’s hope that helps me think."
    Warne's been long retired from one-day internationals. But more importantly, even in the case of injuries to players in the squad of 15, teams aren't allowed to bring in players outside of the preliminary squad of 30 players announced in January.

    Then again, it isn't the first time we've heard an Australian seek to move the goalposts. Dean Jones did it two years ago when he wanted two white balls to be used per innings to allow Australia to make 400. Let's not forget that Australia did indeed score 400, a year later, without any change in the number of white balls per innings. But the only problem was that South Africa scored one run more and won the GODOAT.

    Hi Jagadish....
    But South Africa scored only FOUR runs more than Australia on 12th March 2006! Enjoyed reading your review of that 434-438 match today.

    Angshu - If they scored 4 runs more, surely they did score 1 run more :) You only need to score 1 run more than the opposition to win (unless D/L enters the picture!). Not four. Which is why I wrote it that way!
