"I am very happy and it will allow me to have lot more rice."
Eoin Morgan on being given a rice cooker for being Man of the Match in a Dhaka Premier Division game.
Picked the wrong left handed opener to back it would seem. Still think Katich would've come good had he not got injured, wouldn't be close to Hussey though.
Jimmeh Bollinger to take 14 this Test in an England 6 wicket win.
Siddle was on the verge of being dropped for a while, Lolherty. Pleased with the Finn call. NFI why I left off North.
Smith, Bolly and Tremmers all right.
Prior's not had many chances and has been pretty disappointing when he has batted. Last innings was a sign of what he can do and he's been pretty awesome behind the sticks. Hussey call wasn't all bad either, people calling for him to be dropped and I picked him to come good, even if he did surpass expectations. Has been one of your only 3 batsmen to step up though.
Runscorers - Pietersen, while wrong, isn't a shocking call. Clarke on the other hand, is.
Wicket takers - Johnson in 2nd place for the Aussies, Anderson was so obvious if England were to do well, can't believe how many people tipped Swann or Broad.
Dumpings - all correct
Debutant/returning players - Khawaja has been in 2 squads so may yet be correct. Smith is a yes. Got Tremlett coming in after Adelaide correct, even if the circumstances were different to what I predicted
Suprise Package - Bell may yet ton up twice at Sydney, might have already tonned up at Brisbane and Adelaide had circumstances been slightly different. Hasn't been a dire call.
