    Yup. Hideous. Ajmal's worse tho for my money. It's the modern way...

    Re Botha tho, as the testing bods have decided his throwsra exceeds the allotted tolerance limit, theoretically an ump could call him if he attempted one, couldn't he? Be a brave official to do it, but I'd applaud him.
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    Not that surprising that KP has that sort of record, only 2 batsmen in T20 internationals average under 30% of their balls being dots - him and Colly.

    And on Kieswetter, still feel he's not as good an option as Davies but for some reason Davies has never got the chances Kieswetter has...

    Amazing conclusion there Scaly. If I may, could you provide your thoughts as to why it's so quiet here right now.

    Personally, I wasn't even up in time for the game, and have come straight to work. Looks like we were outplayed. Well done South Africa.

    Could have gone either way (say "T20"), despite the headlines. BTW, what's with cricinfo's " 'Slick' South Africa etc" heading vs England's "commanding victory?" The former sounds the weasel got away with it, whilst the latter was a Lord Nelson rout. I know the rodent innuendo is quite popular, particularly wrt Steyn, but come on....

    Not really, 'slick' in that sense is a good term...

    Langeveldt to Oram, no run, 136.2 kph, short and angling across Oram, who is happy to shoulder arms to that one

    I am not sure NZ had the luxury of allowing batsman sighters at this stage of the game. Made no difference to the end state of the game I note.

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

    Pretty much out played by a better team. Would still like to see Mills come in for Southee for the next game.
