Quandries from a debutant

I have been wondering. Once Ponting is back, what will the Australian XI be like? It would seem crazy to contemplate dropping Clarke or Katich. Yet, Lehmann recognised as one of their better players of spin, and Martyn’s class is beyond doubt. What will they do? So much for Brad Hodge’s test career taking off. Not for a while yet, mate.
And does it look like Lee will get a look-in this series?

And talking of fantastic debuts, there is a crazy statistic though. Of the 79 players who have scored a century on Test debut, 30 haven’t scored another. Another 14 have scored only one more. That’s an amazing 44 of the 79. It is a strange story.
