    Yep. Christian's must the same in limited overs cricket himself, but he (Christian) basically plays as a bowler who can add useful runs from #8 in First Class cricket days. Both are a bit odd in that a lot of people have misconceptions over what their primary skills are.

    Razzak for the last over? Really? Shakib still an interesting captain.

    EDIT: Suppose 8 off it something of a minor triumph.

    Highlight so far has been Waqar's magic Pakistani/Ocker fusion accent.
    172 in the end, very few boundaries at the end but still that is a very imposing total.

    172 should be enough.

    was a dire watch apart from Salman Butt's knock.

    Shot Tamim! Bangladesh almost entirely reliant on Tamim making a huge score. Hopefully he delivers; will certainly be entertaining if he does fire.

    Smith interests the selectors because he has the potential to be the spinner Oz is looking for since Warne retired and is only 20/21

    However, whilst he's learning how to bowl (and he looks like he has all the potential in the world), he's also scored runs for fun and is a genius in the field

    IMO, he could easily bat 6/7 but shouldnt be trusted to bowl 4 overs every game - the selectors take a different view

    Christian, on the other hand, is a slightly worse version of James Hopes

    I'd pick Smith because the kid may well win games for you
