You know your team is in good nick when there's a player of MacGill's calibre waiting in the wings.
He's the perfect replacement for Shane Warne and has a fantastic record against England.
And he'll be relishing turning out in the final Test of the series on his home track at Sydney, a spinner's paradise.
That said, the English batsmen should be up to speed on him after he knocked over wicket after wicket for Nottinghamshire in the summer.
