    lol, not many seem to care about it, but FWIW, I think the Asian XI would probably win this.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    I'm looking forward to it - mainly out of interest.

    Same way that a lot of English footballers get a niggle before friendly matches, I suspect.

    you are right. They simply take time off to be with their families and stuff. Anyways, I am gonna get the channel that is showing it and these are international matches and there is a healthy chance of a Afridi/Sehwag opening combo.. So I will be tuned in, I hope.

    Admittedly if I was from one of the Countries involved in this series, I would probably watch them just because it is a game of international cricket. But overall I think the novelty of it will wear thin quickly and nobody will care less considering its basically South Africa versus a Sub Continent side having to substitute new players in almost daily now.

    I wouldn't be so sure you would Tim - it appears none of the players are that keen.

    I imagine it's only Fat Gray Smith who likes it as he gets his over rate ban to run its course during meaningless games that have been afforded official status for some stupid reason.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
