2006 BD tour was Warne and McGill...dont remember a Cullen but maybe he was on the bench.
Symonds did bowl some spin.

I doubt he's average if the Aussie selectors like him. I'd like to know how long you'd have to do penance for playing for another country before you could play for Zim?
I'm sure there's an ICC regulation governing this and it won't be less than 4 years.

His ODI career won't last long at this rate.

Yeah, he did not look like he belonged there. Was a painful struggle. But may be he is thrown at the deep end at the toughest of the conditions to begin his career.

1 off 15 opening the batting, and then playing a club cricketers shot to get out. Very average
