    the whole not actually getting to play in the important aus a games was a huge bummer in that respect
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Agree, he's doing everything asked of him, and itwould be handy from one respect if the Sixers weren't taking him over to the Champions League.

    But I'm just not sure that he's going to leap in front of enough guys to get there if we play three quicks plus Lyon.

    Then why not let him play for us then, you know where he's a lot more likely to learn something from Gillespie and Ryan Sidebottom?

    Irks me that were missing key players and in certain cases they're not even playing.

    Worried about Warner. Yep, gun Test record to date, but none of it has been earned against pants-****tingly good seamers, of whom only England (on form) and South Africa qualify at the moment. The best pace attack he's faced were the Windies and he averaged 28 in which conditions still favored spin over pace.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say the series in England will be low-scoring since both bowling attacks look very good on paper, and both certainly have enough depth in pace stocks to find four bowlers in decent form. Can see the respective performances of Swann and Lyon dramatically affecting the series, given how much grief Swann's given us both home and away and Lyon's average against non-Indian teams is 25. The ECB's Murray Mints budget may well be decisive, though.

    I would not be surprised at all to see a Hughes comeback if he develops the discipline this summer to tweak his offside game beyond catching practice. Australia has invested too much in him for him to be binned forever, and he's well on track to vindicate the time-honored policy of dropping players with potential only to see them forge outstanding Test careers when they bash their way back in (see: Hayden, Martyn, Ponting, Waugh, Langer, Clarke and Lehmann/Kasprowicz to a lesser extent). Same applies for Uzi if no-one else can nail down number 3 between now and then.

    Am I the only Australian here that would prefer our side facing Finn than Onions?

    Our left armer, the best candidate, was Johnson who slides it into the left hander.
    I think they'll work on it with Patto. Noticed him going around the wicket once or twice vs. Gambhir and moving it away on occasion.

    cantelope.

    more worried about our batting, I can't see us putting 4 or 5 guys on the boundary and bowling short for 6 sessions again

    Would also query as to your threshold for 'giving grief' re: Swann

    I know his average doesn't strictly reflect it but he did seem to break a lot of partnerships in 2010-11.

    He gave me grief, anyway.
