    State bias in Australia

    So annoying. Honestly, I couldn't care less if there aren't any Victorians in the national side if we're winning. It's always nice to have someone representing us (vic) and to cheer for at the MCG but the bias you see from some fans toward certain players and in their hometown media is just astounding. Does my head in sometimes.

    He wouldn't care even then. There are so many people and it is insignificant for him if x from trillions who call his name puts it differently. Except if he is the editor of Wisden.

    Zonal bias in India.

    So annoying. Honestly, most Indians couldn't care less if there are no Bengalis in the national side if they're winning.

    Probably because he doesn't perceive them as "natural, raw talent" and are more gritty hard workers, don't think that excites him as much.

    O...K...

    I'll try not to correct someone's misspelling of a name when you're around.

    I like names to be spelt proprerly, though, mytself.

    What are you smoking? Send me a bit of it please for it will prevent me from wanting to shoot me ears the next time I hear Nicholas' voice.

    Totally agree, I'm a big fan to. He oozes class IMO and is easily the best with words.

    I am just kidding around regarding the whole debate about the topic and I am sure you are too.
