'The most stupid question I've ever heard'
The offspinner Jason Krejza called himself and Simon Katich “the two angry Europeans” in Australia’s squad earlier in this Test, and Katich showed his irritable side after play on the third day. Having been asked why Australia were so defensive – they scored 166 in 85.4 overs – he challenged the knowledge of the person who asked the post-play question, but that was not the end of the exchange. As he left the press conference room he told the journalist it was “the most stupid question I’ve ever heard”.
