It is looking like Edgbaston all over again.

Glenn McGrath may not be able to make the second Test against England. It all depends on how his heel holds up this morning.

Ricky Ponting was emphatic that McGrath would not play unless he was 100% fit.

“We aren’t going to be able to go into the Test match [with McGrath] unless he’s 100 percent,” Ponting said. “It’s as simple as that. We have to rely on him getting right through the game at his best. With the team balance, we can’t afford to be carrying any bowlers whatsoever. Glenn has to be able to give me what I require of him through the course of the game, and if he can’t then a few more questions will be asked.”
