 Q:   Ask a Question about IT'S Mc GRATH AGAIN       
After the debacle on the 1st day, there seems to be a cloud of gloom for the England batsmen as defeat seems to be inevitable and right in front of their eyes.

The past statistics seem to have something to suggest as both the matches played here at Gabba were comprehensively won by Australia on both the instances and it seems to be so the third time in a row as well.

All of England's specialist batsmen tried their best to come up with a thunderous innings to threaten the Aussie bowling attack. Instead, Glenn McGrath made a gateway with the old ball before the relatively new Jason Gillespie struck with the new ball.

After that it was the same old story and the tail was soon swept away and the Australian lead was a mighty 167 and all this thanks to the big man, Glenn Mc Grath.

McGrath permitted no liberties a day before and afterwards and also made us aware that the pitch was deteriorating; the cracks in the pitch were widening up which Captain Nasser Hussain wanted to hear.

McGrath, like most of the Aussie players, is reluctant to talk about their opponents in public, lest they jump onto that.

McGrath soon overcame England's left-handed resistance yesterday morning but only after taking up some time to loosen up. But after half an hour, McGrath prevailed yet again.

It was not the pitch that helped him,it was careless batting from Mark Butcher and Trescothick. In the days sixth over, Butcher drove lazily away from his body. He middled the ball straight into the hands of Matthew Hayden in the gully who is a safe hand for Australia and he made no mistake.

Trescothick's dismissal was not much better than Butchers though it did offer a nice little example of how McGrath and Gillespie work together.

McGrath said later that he thought he bowled a bit too short at times as he had a chat with Jason earlier who told him that he had troubled Marcus earlier with good length and hence Glenn too tried to copy the same.
