    In such a short format though I reckon its pretty much a coin flip over whether someone who likes to go after spinners does well or is dominated. If this were a Test I'd say in these conditions he'd be up **** creek without a paddle.

    Well Murali is very predictable in T20. You know apart from the very occasional doosra he's going to bowl it on a length to whatever the obvious plan of attack is. The fact he gets so much spin means he's got to bowl it wide of off or wide of leg for the lefties. Obviously his raw bowling skill is so good that it's still very difficult to play him (particularly for tailenders), but if you can find a particular shot that works he'll keep feeding it. Like he got slog swept over deep midwicket a number of times in the IPL (Mathews messed his figures up on a turner if I remember rightly) and he had no comeback for it. The reverse sweep is good because he spins it so much and you know where he'll bowl it (plus a low risk of lbw). But in between those shots he'll be very miserly because he is consistent and he'll get dot balls spinning it so much.

    I hope Nicol gets the nod ahead of Hopkins.
    Hopkins does little for team balance and I don't have much faith in him replicating his small patch of form he showed against Oz.

    On another note, did anyone else notice Franklin's List A ton opening the other weekend?

    He sure likes giving County bowlers a tonk.

    I am not usually a fan of the TAB - but they have really impressed me with the betting options for the T20 - it is awesome. I plan to spend my whole account on the different betting options that they have. Hats off to whoever thought of these options. They even have first to score 10 runs out of ryder and mcCullum. I am certain this will be Ryder as McCullum likes to **** around for the 1st over to get a few sighters while Ryder will hit it if it is in the zone.

    Also hats off to whoever did the odds on the highest scorer of the competition. Obviously shane watson is the front runner and he has the lowest odds. I wonder if the TAB has a different bookie for each sport to set the odds or if it is like one guy who just watches the crowd goes wild every day and reads the dom post.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Really looking forward to watching McCullum and Ryder open for NZ, watching those 2 vs Malinga is going to be surefire entertainment. Backing NZ in this one, just don't see Sri Lanka having a great tournament for some reason.

    Gotta love Bumble; was playing league cricket against McCullum, N last year. "Nothing special; but slow. Very slow."

    Offies opening the bowling causes me to die a little inside tho.

    I love watching Jayawardene in this format of the game. Not the most effective of players all the time but when he's in form he's one of the players who can score quickly by just playing gorgeous cricket shots off every ball rather than playing the power-hitting game.
