I am confident the above is the first on-line photo of Bryce McGain on the comeback trail.
Playing for his district side Prahran against Melbourne at Warrion Recreation Reserve, north west of Colac in south west of Victoria, McGain started rusty early. His first ball was sent flying back over his head for a four and his first two overs cost 13 runs with a few short balls on offer.
But he hit his straps in the third over, and as the above photo demonstrates, his flight was back and the Melbourne batsmen were stuck between playing forward and back.
Given the current state of spin bowling in the Aus side at the moment, I am sure he has done more than enough to book his seat on the flight to South Africa. Time will tell, but Mr Hilditch, do the right thing, pick CWB’s own Bryce McGain!!!
