    Now you've confused me. Unless you meant that his first test ton would be in an ashes match.

    I can remember a few years ago when persons were calling for Clarke"s head.I can remember telling them selectors had invested too much in Clarke to drop him now.Are we seeing the same investments in the younger bats?Clarke wasn"t as good a performer like what he is today,people wanted Hodge in the team instead.Wonder whether we are destroying young talented bats as a result of lack of patience.Hope after today Smith gets given a long run in the team.I know many won't agree with me but I think selector made a mistake back in 2009 when they drop Hughes and right now.The dropping of Hughes back then in 2009 must have destroyed his confidence.Hughes Smith and Khawaja need to be given an extended run.Its easier to give them an extended run now than it was back then when Clarke was failing.Back then we had top class bats waiting in the wings , right now we have no world class batsmen in the shield available for selection.I"m pleading to selectors let's hAve faith in the potential trio.

    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

    Even when Finn's not playing he still ****s things up for us.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    Beefy suggesting they only have the rule for Finn and not for anyone else. Oh dear.

    Nah, bull****. In a strong side you can afford to carry a passenger to give them experience. Much harder when your batting unit isn't strong, because you need immediate performance from whoever you pick.

    It's not his debut Ashes series though. Played in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney in 2010/11.

    Apparently he's running close to the stumps to avoid the foot holes. Bloody Old Trafford.
