Warne, MacGill send world all-stars spinning
10/16/2005
 

          SYDNEY, Oct 15 (AFP): Leg-spin wizards Shane Warne and Stuart MacGill bamboozled the world all-stars working in tandem to give Australia a vice-like grip on the Super Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground Saturday.
SCG specialist MacGill captured 4-39 off 9.1 overs and Warne 3-23 from 12 overs as the Australians skittled the world's best for 190 to seize a 155-run innings lead.
On an eventful second day's play, 15 wickets fell -- leaving the real prospect that the Super Test would finish before its scheduled sixth day.
At the close, Australia were 66 for one and had built their lead to 221 runs with nine wickets in hand and four days left for a result.
First-innings centurion Matthew Hayden, maintaining his patient batting policy, was unbeaten on 27 in 95 minutes with skipper Ricky Ponting not out 17.
Justin Langer, out on the third ball in the first innings, lasted 33 balls before he edged Jacques Kallis's fourth delivery to Graeme Smith at first slip for 22.
Warne, coming off his 40 wicket-haul in the recent Ashes series in England, struck three times in the middle session, claiming the wickets of Virender Sehwag (76), Kallis (44) and Mark Boucher (0).
MacGill, unused in all five Ashes Tests, mopped up the brittle world resistance with the last three wickets, including Andrew Flintoff (35), to further enhance a glowing reputation on his home pitch.
"Australia is well-placed now. This is exactly what you'd try and do in this situation," MacGill said.
"We would have rather made more runs in the first innings -- but having posted the score that we did, to take a lead of well in excess of a hundred is very good for us.
"If we can bat for another two or three days, it should be nice bowling."
Warne removed danger man Sehwag in his fourth over after the free-spirited Indian opener looked primed for his 11th century in his 36th Test.
