    possibly because he scored 174* against australia A on his tour down under and pretty much saved england singlehandedly from defeat.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    1. England bowlers, not batmen, hold the key. Australia loves to be the bullys, especially with the bat. When they post a big score in their first innings, they are rarely beaten. It doesn't matter if you post a 350+ score against Australia when your batting first. So many times we've seen Australia pile on scores of 500 plus to demoralise their opponents.
    i think the same applies for any team in the world. not many teams lose when they post 350+ scores on the board.

    Bell,Pieterson, Collingwood or Key?

    i dont think collingwood even makes a case. based on recent performances, i get the feeling that both key and butcher have been pushed further back in line and bell and pieterson are currently in front.
    i think the only way you can decide who makes the XI for the ashes series, is to play key, bell and pieterson against b'desh and see who comes out best, however conclusive that is supposed to be.

    English players and media hitting at Warne?

    First the Adams story and trying to paint Warne as a sledging villain over a county match.

    Then the apparent story of future Warney retirement.

    English trying to play mind games with the Australians and targetting the number one threat Warney? The English players havent had a good history of playing well against Warne. Well they have a poor performance against the likes of McGrath and Gillespie too but is Warne considered the biggest threat.

    English are playing mind games much more than the Aussies till now. I am not sure they are being too successful as it would be difficult to unsettle Warne and get into his mind.

    The Warney retirement was sparked by him/his manager, who talked about it first.

    The comments have apparently been made by brother and manager Jason Warne. Warne said he is to get back to his brother and has not spoken to him in the past seven days.

    The reality behind the story is not completely clear. Specially on the face of remarks made by Warne.

    M. Taylor = A. Strauss
    D. Boon = M. Vaughan
    D. Jones = K. Pieterson
    A. Border = M. Butcher??? (bit of a difference there)
    S. Waugh = A Flintoff
    I. Healy = G. Jones
    T. Hohns = A Giles
    M. Hughes = S. Harmison
    T. Alderman = M. Hoggard
    G. Lawson = S. Jones/anyone else you'd like
    You know, aside from Border, Healy and Giles, that's quite uncanny. The other 8 all seem to fit the bill almost perfectly. Jones and Pietersen are a bit questionable as well.

    So why immediately blame the British for it then?

    Warne had had some bad publicity about the sledging, so his manager decided to put a possible retirement story to the media, the ate it up, meaning the bad story is forgotten about.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    It's always Warne isn't it?? I mean if someone had done the same thing in Australian grade cricket, the media wouldn't have made a deal about it. If it was Stuart MacGill playing for Sydney Uni against Randwick Petersham and MacGill acted like Warne did, no-one would make a big deal about it.

    Like Warne said somewhere, he would like to be able to lead his life without being on the back cover for every mistake he makes in life and not be pounced on by the media He also said that unfortunately his life would never be like that.
