    Go to CW's front page, click 'news archive', scroll down to the bit where it says 'older archived news....' and click that link. Scrol down again to the section on DD's weekly column, then click November 2003, then click 'Ponting boring - official' and then scroll down.

    Sorry it's a lot of work.

    I will, but dont pass your belief as a 'FACT', because IMO it simply isn't.
    It is a fact that India and Pakistan are similar.

    But this is a pointless discussion, and I think you will agree with me here.

    The word similar would mean similar on what grounds. What you feel are needed to be similar may vary very much from what I believe.

    The paramaters I see, and many people who have visited there and what I have read in books, my parameters are fulfilled.

    So it is better to say it is a fact based on my parameters. You are free to believe what you want based on your parameters.

    Any way, as I said neither you nor I want this pointless discussion.

    Thanks.

    There's nothing so strange as language. For instance, the ancient Anglo-Saxon word 'Rikkiclarke' literally means 'Huge Spot'

    And the word balti is used in many North indian Indian restaurants to name dishes like "balti chicken" "balti mutton" etc.

    This is invariably served in a miniature metal bucket. I dont know if it is also cooked in one.

    Thanks Eddie !! It worked this time. I must have been doing something wrong first time.

    Funny article, with my IQ it took a while for me to understand why the Dzinn turned Inzi into Ricki Clark, but after I figured it out, It was so damn funny.

    All bow to the greatest cricketer in the world 'Ricky Clark'.

    I bought Mrs Luckyeddie some balti dishes a couple of years ago. They're brilliant when you're chasing the last bits of sauce around the dish with a bit of naan bread.
