Hang Time

Terry Alderman thought that Australian batsmen should "go and hang themselves" if they got out to Ashley Giles this summer.

Let's just look at the King of Spain's record:

Second Test - First Innings

*RT Ponting c Vaughan b Giles 61
MJ Clarke c GO Jones b Giles 40
SK Warne b Giles 8

Second Test - Second Innings

SM Katich c Trescothick b Giles 16
+AC Gilchrist c Flintoff b Giles 1

And today:

JL Langer c Bell b Giles 31
ML Hayden lbw b Giles 34
DR Martyn b Giles 21

Australia won't have much of a team left at this rate!
