DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Wednesday - SEC­OND TEST AUS­TRALIA v SRI LANKA, Chan­nel 9, 10am

THE Box­ing Day Test is what Christ­mas is all about for some peo­ple. I don’t know if Sri Lanka are much chop, but Aus­tralia can’t be re­lied upon nec­es­sar­ily ei­ther. Still, I don’t care is the other thing. But I’m just won­der­ing have Nine locked in Ian Chap­pell and Richie Be­naud yet? Pos­si­bly. Pos­si­bly about 30 years ago. Be­cause wouldn’t it be bet­ter for ev­ery­one if they got Clay­ton Wat­son in this year? And Peter Houghton? Who played them in Howzat? They ob­vi­ously know a lot about the game. A lot. They can pull a crowd. They’re cam­era-ready. It just makes sense.
