    Australia's plan for Bell

    Does it stretch beyond simply hoping he gets himself out? That he handles the ball 10 times? That he's abducted by aliens?

    How does a third rate attack get a superior version of Tendulkar out up to 10 times?

    It's a bloody tough call. Even for Clarke and Lehmann (clearly 2 of the world's great thinkers).
    World XI Since 1990 -

    1. Gooch 2. Dravid 3. Ponting 4. Tendulkar 5. Lara 6. Kallis 7. Gilchrist 8. Akram 9. Warne 10. Ambrose 11. McGrath

    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

    Forget about Australia's plans, as it stands you guys need to sit down and have a serious think about a plan for Burgey. Been destroying you guys in the lead up so far.

    I'm finding the Aussie confidence around here really cute.

    It's like when my 4 year-old girl tells me she's gonna beat me up

    The self indulgent crap in the opening post aside, I'm not actually sure we even bowled that badly to him, aside from probably attacking the stumps too much when he was set, allowing him to get 1's and 2's in the leg side pretty easily.

    He never took the game away from us quickly or anything, it seemed more to be a case of a guy really in superb form, and what comes with that - not nicking the good ones early, not throwing it away like he's prone to doing, and I genuinely think he was quite lucky. I don't mean that in a negative way like he didn't deserve the runs or play well, but it seemed every time he did eventually play a false shot, particularly on the cut, top edges and the like went for four rather than to hand. Obviously it doesn't matter if you hit it in the air if it goes in gaps to the fence, but some were really close to being held, and were the type of dismissals guys get crucified for. Just one of those goes to hand early one innings and a the media starts to get in his grill and a few doubts creep in and maybe you start getting him early.

    So other than The Champion taking him out early every knock or a string of pealers, I would say the only thing might be to try the old "NZ to Marto" plan, pack point and the gully and bowl to his strength out there. The normal didn't seem to work so I guess we should try something funky.

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    in regard to bell, where we did fail was allow his ****ty little late cuts to rake in plenty of easy bitch runs. bowl short to the ****.
