    I've always rated him quite highly, though in the context of the big picture and his overall career I fear that it might be difficult to assess him compared to some of his peers.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    I thought he was a little unlucky to get out to what seemed like his first false shot in four hours. After playing Swann so well he'd kinda earnt the right to miss one. Quality delivery though.

    Some dramatic justice in a weird way, best ball of the day to end the best innings. Hussey played fantastically well today.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Eh? Nowhere near the best ball of the day, Anderson's two balls to Ponting/Clarke were just in a different universe

    Best ball that Swann bowled though to be fair.

    they were decent balls but Ponting and especially Clarke handling of them was rank.

    Really? I thought Clarke got a sublime delivery which, even though he went at it pretty hard, would be pretty hard not to get out to. Ponting played his far worse imo. Just looked off balance and he hit his pad with his bat.

    Clarke had no business going so hard at the ball when he knew Jimmeh was getting the away swing yeah looking back both shots were quite dire.

    I agree on the first part...don't think they have to be described as other-worldly, it was just very good bowling to guys who just got in. They were good balls in good areas. Don't think Clarke and Ponting handled them too badly though given they'd just got in. They had to play. Whether Clarke had to go so hard at the ball is questionable.

    While that's true, I don't think it's especially likely that it would've made that much difference had he gone with soft hands. The ball was brand new so any edge wasn't going to drop short and the line was so close to off-stump, Clarke didn't really have any right to be missing it. Think both dismissals were a classic case of just getting a good one.

    The openers are there to protect the side's strokemakers from deliveries like those. I'm perfectly happy to lump all of the blame on Simon Katich.

    Yeah I kind of felt sorry for Watto when he was being interviewed and he said he thought it was all his fault. No chance, Katich was simply too hesitant.
