    Symonds is a test quality player, I've seen far too many brilliant first class innings in troubled situation to doubt his ability at test level, however some players just don't get the luck or for whatever reason just don't perform. He showed today that he has the ability to be a handy bowling prospect for Australia, he now needs a big innings in the 2nd to give him some breathing space.

    He knows perfectly well already what it takes to get up there to 100 already - 8 innings, hey presto, 100.

    Sorry. Not what you meant?

    The same can be said for players like Mark Ramprakash, Graeme Hick and Hasan Rasa. Some players just cant take the next step.

    Symonds may well turn out to be a decent test batsman, but Im sick of hearing comments like "of course symonds is good enough for test cricket" where there is every chance that he isnt.

    Well, I think him getting wickets has done his confidence a world of good and he's playing a bit more freely. This is a fantastic innings, it'll do so much good for him.

    Your missing my point.

    Your not going to hit a ball if it isn't there to hit or is too good a ball that you just have to defend. Each ball is different so you have to play accordingly, you decide whether or not what you are going to do, good ball or not.

    Must I make myself clearer?

    Just call me Nostradamas!!!

    Great innings today. Hitting that 6 off his 3rd ball (?) got him started and today he didn't look back. Batting with his great mate Hayden also helped him. The last couple of days should have bought him a few more tests and a trip to South Africa.

    You said that playing each ball on its merit is the same in any form of the game. That's not true. In ODI cricket you are going to attempt to hit a ball that "isn't there or is too good a ball", because you have to. It's due to the limited number of overs.

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."

    He definitely played well yesterday (I was at the game, and when he came out to bad and when he hit a 6 to get off a pair the roar was huge) and obviously had much more confidence in himself since the occasion required quick runs. I still felt there was a bit of poor captaincy by Smith. I didn't feel he attacked a batsman that was under pressure as much as he could have, but as per usual, once Symonds starts hitting he's very hard to stop.

    Ahhhh all you doubters! I believe Symonds can average low 40`s and be a very hander bowler for Australia. I just hope he does, he`s a great player.

    Jesus. So he takes a few wickets which most of them were through sheer luck and now he should be classified as a quality change pace bowler? Give me a break. Give me a Styris, Oram, Cairns, Mills, Hopes over his bowling anyday. His 120 pacers are pure crap.

    Did you watch the match? Even on Day 2 when he didn't take any wickets he was bowling very well and we all said it. He had much more penetration and troubled all the batsmen. It's not just a few wickets due to sheer luck. He bowled better than I'd ever seen him bowl and didn't even try a single off-break.

    Boucher shouldn't have been given. Pollock's wicket was a result of low bounce. Kallis was a good ball I give him that, but at his pace, he should be bowling a tight line anyway.
