Man, imagine them getting vision of a "Bevan explosion" back in the day. As a cricketer, really detest the idea of cameras being in there.
Now Gilly. Why don't u go for a run in these hot humid conditions
"He's [Michael Clarke] on Twitter saying sorry for not walking? Mate if he did that in our side there'd be hell to play. AB would chuck his Twitter box off the balcony or whatever it is. Sorry for not walking? Jesus Christ man."RIP CraigosKnowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it into a fruit salad
Nielsen's spray at Fletcher... quite amusing to see Nielsen ranting about Fletcher's record. I suppose he is correct in that Fletcher was unsuccessful in Australia, but it's not like Nielsen has the record of a world-beater. I haven't heard a lot about Nielsen in the run-up, but you'd think if Australia lost the series he'd be under a lot of pressure.
Also, given Hauritz is apparently not good enough even to edge out Doherty, should we be worried that Swann has been studying Hauritz from last season because he's "well worth copying"?
First couple of pages of this thread are just awesome, they truly are. Not in a 'I told you so' way (although it is good to see ****s like pasag and Got_Spin get told where to shove it ) but in showing how far we progressed in 2010. At the start of the year, people actually suspected we might drop a Test to Bangladesh, now we're arguing over whether we can become #1.
"It was an easy decision to sign. I could have gone elsewhere, I had calls, but it never entered my mind it's not about the money."
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

- As featured in The Independent.
"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
I put all my faith in Broad a long way back as well tbf.
What's really telling though is that everyone I've read naming an England XI in the first 5 or 6 pages (skimming through the thread to kill time til we start the SCG Masscare) has got at least 9/11 players right. Top seven spot on each time, Swann & Anderson ever-present. And tbf the other two spots have featured four players. Shows how settled we are whereas picking the Oz side from week-to-week is nigh on impossible, and that's one of the key reasons our players perform better as a team, IMO.
