I heard Kerry OKeefe on ABC Radio complimenting George Bailey’s juggled catch of Kevin Pietersen in the first innings at Adelaide, by saying he was always going to hold it because he has “Sticky Fingers”.

Will Sir Mick bring out his egg and bacon MCC tie on the Rolling Stone’s upcoming tour of Australia?  Does England need Keef and Charlie to strengthen their middle order?  If England lose 5-0 will the Stones be forced to follow on?
