    Is that an official nickname? I'd only ever heard it on here in the last few days - and now two people are using it.

    Is there no number 7 in Australian?

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Oh yes, sorry. Pakistan.

    How would George Bush put it? Oh yes.

    There's an old saying in Tennessee—I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee—that says, fool me once, shame on—shame on you. Fool me—you can't get fooled again.

    Sorry again.

    Don't forget KP folks.

    As for Astle - err what's he done apart from one innings in a hopeless cause? Certainly isn't consistent.

    Hundreds have nothing to do with hard-hitting though. Powell only has one, and he's one of the hardest hitters about.

    True, but when Astle gets his hundreds he gets them really quite fast.

    Having said that I probably don't think he should be on that list, was just replying to what I thought was a rather harsh comment about Astle, who has been a very good batsman for NZ.
