Aussie cricketers doing well... in England

While Australia's top cricketers are in the West Indies playing in the world cup, a number of other Aussies are doing well in English County Cricket at the moment:

Ian Harvey hit 136
(and 12-0-47-0) for Derbyshire against Essex.
Simon Katich, also playing for Derbyshire, has hit 50 and 38* in the same match.
David Hussey hit 105 for Nottinghamshire against Leicestershire.
Justin Langer hit 303 not out for Somerset against Middlesex.
Jason Gillespie hit 123 not out - yes you read correctly - for Yorkshire against Surrey (as well as 10-3-23-1 and 2-0-7-0).
Michael DiVenuto hit 155 not out and 83 for Durham against Worcestershire.
Doug Bollinger took 14-3-60-3 and 19-2-94-1 for Worcestershire in the same match.
Phil Jacques hit 19 and 97 for Worcestershire in the same match.

With second-string players performing like this, no wonder Australia is doing well.
