We could all go insane wondering What If Monty Played In Brisbane And Adelaide? At least he didn't get Mister Cricket, whose Test career batting average has climbed to 85.35.

My Midwinter-Midwinters: Monty Panesar 3 pts; Michael Hussey 2 pts; Steve Harmison 1 point.
(And a cheerio to the BBC Five Live Test Match Special blogistas, who have put me, and most of the other Usual Suspects, on their blogroll. Here is Aggers' post-stumps missive for today.)
