    I mentioned White, when?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

    i like white? hell yeah i do!!

    guys i like bear but its just that his role in the side is beyond my understanding coz he is handy bat and a developing spinner and good captain for victoria, but as batsman at no.7 his place in the team is questionable coz there far better hard hitting proper(d.hussey, thronley) batsmen for that place, punter says he is our wicket taking option but gives him a bowl when only 1 wicket is left now how is going to improve like that .

    Is a warne comeback possible?

    Ok guys aussies have bases in batting and fast bowling mostly covered for now but the spin department is a bit wobbly so if there is a case that aussies don't find a world class spinner than would warney make a comeback as he will still play for 2 years for hampshire in county cricket.

    White is in the side as a batsman to bat #7 and bowl an 3-5 overs a game. I hardly see a better option at this stage, given his form for Victoria, his abilty to score quickly from the moment he arrives to the crease and his part-time leggies.

    Nope. He thought it through when he retired and nothing has changed since.

    Well, so did I...

    Oh, right, genuinely didn't realise that.

    I'm amazed a Trinidadian would idolise a Guyanese, mind.
