    Lmao I read on CricInfo when Dhoni bowled, and having just written the CricketWeb player profile of him I knew he was a keeper.
    I laughed, there was nothing else to do.

    Wow. I hadn't realised quite how in need of a trip to the barbers Dhoni is! Sidebottom-esque!

    I actually think Afridi could be a half-decent seamer if he worked at it tho. I've seen his quicker ball (from no run up at all) nudge 80mph, which is seriously shifting for a spinner.

    There was nothing in Dhoni bowling. I was always expecting Dhoni to a bowl a few over of medium-pace and I feel that he has been underbowled a bit. Now, if Dhoni, can practice his medium-pace bowling in the nets, he can be considered as a useful part-time medium-pace bowling option in the one dayers. We have been missing part-time medium-pacers in ODIs and till now only Ganguly was an option, but now with Ganguly not being a regular in the ODI team, the only possible part-time medium-pace option left is Dhoni and he needs to work at his bowling in the nets. Also, do not be surprised if Dhoni, becomes a regular part-timr medium-pacer in the ODIs and bowls 3-4 overs if required.

    I had said something like this well before the 1st test -

We can have Dravid keeping for sometime. Taibu, recently did it for Zimbabwe almost 2 years ago against Sri Lanka with Utseya taking the gloves while Taibu bowled and Taibu kept when the other bowlers bowled.

    Dhoni should never cut his hair. He's representing all the long-haired people that play cricket. A dying breed, which I was too once a part of.

    Yeah but look at Boucher's hair. Just can't compare the two. Boucher's not even in Dhoni's league.

    Only Akmal's teeth and Gilly's ears can compete with Dhoni.

    when afridi was bowling his seamers, what sort of pace was he hitting? If he can hit 80km/hr with no run up.. i'd hate to see what he could do with a run up

    Oh come off it - he's in the side to keep, not bowl.

    Dizzy of course, although his recent games probably don't count as "Cricket"
