"Never give a sucker an even break"

Through no fault of his own, Simon Katich did a similar thing yesterday after a minor groin strain sustained at training forced him to surrender his spot.

Enter the replacement left-hander Phil Jaques. And just on a month after making an inauspicious Test debut at the MCG when he made scores of two and 28, Jaques seized his chance with the flair and gusto of a man intent on answering promptly after opportunity came knocking.

His 94 - the highest score by an Australian on one-day international debut - was as scintillating as it was essential given the otherwise ordinary Australia batting effort.

Poor Katich. Jaques (his batting style looks similar to that of Stephen Fleming) is in great form and if he establishes himself at the top of the order, Katich might find himself sitting out more often than not.
