    Spinners are useless and only ever take wickets because they bowl a lot of balls.

    Even so, all we know is a probability.

    HawkEye is totally different to Snickometer, RedZone, etc. which simply shows facts in a different way or reveals facts that can otherwise be missed.

    There's no reason to suspect the probability prediction is not extremely accurate (though I find it silly when values are given to 3 SF as it can't possibly be that closely known) but that remains all it is.

    Reverse Swing ;1) A cheating done by the Pakistani bowlers .



    2) An art invented by the English .

    Its illogical to just look at Warne's record in India without going into the whole picture.

    So what if his ten wickets on his first tour cost him 54 each at 100.2 per wicket.

    So what again if on his second tour his ten wickets cost him 50.50 each at 91.3 balls each

    (Notice the improvement !!)

    His 14 wickets on his 3rd tour cost him just over 30 each at 60 balls each.

    If he had not retired and gone on two more tours, he would have surely had a series with wickets under 25 each and strike rate in the 40's

    By the way, dont talk to me about Lillee's bowling, just look at what happened to him in Pakistan. Hah !

    Just saw this. Great thread.

    Anyway....

    I think Michael Atherton is a better batsman than Matthew Hayden....
    ...because Hayden failed when Atherton played and I refuse to believe that players get better over time.

    I automatically think Andrew Symonds is a **** batsman...
    ...because he gave away a couple of chances in his big innings.

    I think that Stuart Broad looks like a girl...
    ...because any people with long blond hair is obviously a girl.

    More to come .

    Oh, and...

    The umpires only helped Australia in 'monkeygate'....
    ....because any anti-Tendulkar comments is forbidden.

    Sachin Tendulkar must be the best batsman ever...
    ...because 1 billion people say so.

    1.2 billion people say Sachin is the best batsman ever. So, he could not possibly be.

    1.2 billion people also think McGrath is one of the greatest of the greatest bowlers ever. So he couldn't be.

    1 person thinks Mike Garnham is the greatest keeper-batsman of all time. Doesn't make it less true though.
