    Was funny on inside cricket when they were discussing Warne coming back to play ODI's and BJ is like hey guys what about brad hogg, his figures aren't to bad. But then Mark Waugh completely rejects him by saying "umm well i don't think you can compare the two"

    *whistles* well i found it funny..
    I don't think Junior Waugh rates anyone though! - except himself, though he only averaged 41. Good bloke though.

    Well how can you compare hogg to warne seriously? have seen him say he rates plenty of players. Great player...ill bring the old cliche out "averages don't tell the whole story"

    I agree RE: Hoggy. Just making a general observation about Junior. He is particularly blunt. But it's refreshing to hear some honesty among commentators, rather than them treading on egg-shells all of the time.

    And, yeah, Junior was a good package (free-scorer; great in the field; good presence etc). Just that I think his batting was a little over-rated. Still one of my favourite players though.

    Yeah agree with you on junoir. I hate commentators who are to scared to comment on a player in a negative way simply because they don't want to tread on any toes or hurt someone confidence or something like that.

    You should get Junoir's biography if you like him

    Got it. Written by James Knight. It's great.

    Yeah it is

    The best Cricket biography i have read though is Steve Waugh's "out of my comfort zone". A great book which reviels alot about members of the team during his team. Also the funny pranks he did are a good laugh

    Yeah, I'm almost finished it. I love how, in high school, he invited everyone in his biology class except the nerd over to his house to watch an X rated movie, only for the left out nerd to tell on them.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Yeah but 41 tells the story of Mark Waugh, that's just too low to ignore. I laughed out loud when he started criticising Lara's technique and batting style on Inside Cricket. Mark Waugh may have been an attractive batsman to watch, but he wasn't a great test match batsman.

    I dont see how Waugh criticising Lara's batting technique is any more or less funny than members here criticising the batting techniques of players like Amla etc.

    Whether you can do any better yourself is irrelevant to any observations you make.

    20 test hundreds might say different.

    I wonder who else here has the guts to admit that (if they do) they would like to see a form of Cricket where throwing is allowed, squads of 15-16 and different batsmen and bowlers. Of course, don't get carried away with the idea that I actually want this. I'm just wondering if anyone else does, and if they do, if they're brave enough to declare it on this forum. Indeed, I make the blasphemous, preposterous suggestion that Cricket take a step backwards and abandon the supersub rule. Also, don't think this is me standing up for Julian.

    Q: What's your favourite animal?
    Steve Waugh: Merv Hughes.

    Fred Trueman:

    That was a tremendous six, the ball was still in the air as it went over the boundary.
    That's what cricket is all about. Two batsmen pitting their wits against one another.
    Anyone foolish enough to predict the outcome of this match is a fool.
    Unless something happens that we can't predict, I don't think a lot will happen.
