    Seeing as you are from New Zealand, you probably would, but with the ********* level of batting McCullum has, its very unlikely; as Sangakkara, Boucher and taibu are better batsmen while Courtney Browne is about twenty times better keeper.

    Very low chance.

    Taibu, i think Chris Read has more chance of playing. McCullum is not a bad batter, when it comes to keepers and batting McCullum and Jones would be next to Sangakkara and Gilchrist.

    For me it depends where the keeper is going to bat in the side.

    If at 7 or 8, then I'd go for McCullum, but if you want him at 4 or 5 then I wouldn't.

    Now you really have lost the plot.

    So while you have no problems with the using an illegal drug, you want Warne tried in court for using something that isn't illegal?

    Marijuana has exempt status in many places and posession or smoking is not a punishable offence. The stuff he took *IS* banned substance and hence he got the proverbial tap on the wrist.

    Yes. But it is NOT illegal in many sports to be a pot smoker-just as long as you dont dope up the day before a game.
    The effects of pot lasts very short period of time in the system.
    Masking agents on the other hand, are used to cover up drugs like nandrolone, a performance enhancing drug that has lasting effect for years.

    Warne is a drug cheat and he got off easy. ALL other sporting bodies have very tough rules and regulations for this.
    He also got away for matchfixing but thats another story.

    As far as i am concerned, if guys like Azharuddin,Jadeja,Malik, etc. can be banned on circumstantial evidence(only Cronje had categoric evidence against him) Warne and junior should've been banned as well.

    Dope *is* a banned substance punishable by two years in every sport in the world.

    The stuff he took is not an illegal substance, yet you're more concerned about it (and think he should be put in court for it) then by people taking illegal substances.

    It is illegal within the framework of the sporting regulation and guilty of doping in a sport can lead to public litigations.
