Off spin is an art; it is not an extra curricula activity.

Australia aren’t playing Wales.

Matthew 24:3-31 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. Or many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumours of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places and a former Queensland club spinner from NSWales shall bowl in an ashes test outside of Australia and England.”
