    Took infinitely more wickets than Johnson did .

    Nah, he wasn't impressive but he was genuinely much, much better than Midge. Didn't bleed runs uncontrollably and very occasionally beat the bat.

    That's a mental image I could do without.

    Bollinger and Harris are the best 2 fast bowlers in Australia ATM.

    Jimmy Anderson is comfortably the best fast bowler in Australia ATM tbh
    Phillip Hughes 1988-2014

    RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

    Rick loves Rhino

    "He's a great competitor," Ponting said. "He runs in all day for you and he is the sort of guy that bowls the right length for Adelaide conditions.

    "He bangs the ball into the wicket, which you need to do down there if you are going to have success. If it happens to reverse swing down there, he is very good at that, as well.

    "The fact he has had great success at international cricket means he is one of those guys that is just meant to be playing."


    Rhino will splutter down to Adelaide in his Datsun 350B, knee held together by tape, and he'll give ya plenty!

    Also, why did swanneh go to **** all of a sudden? I was actually start to rate him. Which is really rare because he's a spinner, and he's English.

    Just had one bad spell vs Hussey - and it was bad, don't get me wrong - but he'll come back from that. May not storm the series but he'll be at least a solid bowler.

    Colly holding that chance would have been a nice boost wouldn't it

    Just a bit. I had bets on for Watson to get 10 runs less than he did, and Swann to get more wickets than Doherty.

    Meanwhile, Ricky needed to get 10 more runs or take one more catch to get him over the performance line and he dropped two. Sod's law.

    (Talking about cricketbetlive btw)

    Still waiting for that moment when Ponting or one of the selectors announces a player is dropped because 'they'll only run in before lunch'.
