Sensational news leading up to the second Test

The combined might of the British and Australian media are trying to make you think that things are happening in the run-up to the next Test, but they aren't. Here's what's going on:

  • - Various people are saying that Steve Harmison will 'bounce back'. Of course no-one actually knows, so we'll just have to wait until the start of the cricket to find out.
  • - Matthew Hayden thinks that England's batsmen will struggle against Warne in Adelaide. Of course he doesn't know this for a fact. Again, we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
  • - Matthew Hayden also thinks that Australia's batsmen won't have too many problems with Monty Panesar. Of course most of Australia's batsmen have never faced Panesar, so this is really just brash, unfounded optimism.
  • - Glenn McGrath didn't bowl in the nets. Will he make the Test? Will he not? Let's wait and find out.
  • - Michael Vaughan actually played a cricket match. Will England unveil him midway through the series? Some might say that only time will tell.
That's right: Journalists are earning their salaries by producing articles, just as they have since the dawn of time. That's the best news that we can come up with: Journalists are writing stuff. We sneer and say it's not news, yet hands up who's read versions of every last one of those stories in up to six different places?

We can't get enough of it.
