    Was a good 15 minutes until I saw it come up on Twitter, and retweeted by Andrew Miller no less.

    Just don't understand the need to be so diplomatic in press conferences. Speak your mind, or what's the point of even doing them.

    Because I don't want to know what Shane Watson had for breakfast today, or what it should have been for the last few months, or what it should be for the home Ashes, or whether he wants to have full cream milk with his Sultana Bran despite the increased risk of not being match fit because it could give him a stomach ache and the team needs him at 100%.

    That's ****ing why.

    But then Watson might cry.

    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

    Obviously as a coach the best way to coax good performances out of Watson is to bake him publicly. We've all seen how that works out.

    It'd be like a fusion of T20s and Tests.

    ha you serious? Everyone knows his form has been substandard, including himself, and if he can't deal with a very honest acknowledgement of that by the coach, then he doesn't deserve to be a professional athlete. These aren't 5 years old kids*. It's not like he has to humiliate Watson and say he should be ashamed of himself, all he has to do is admit at the moment his performances aren't really good enough to justify his position as a batsman alone.
