    Yep, one needs to to properly use them.

    Either way, FTR that comment was one I thought was probably pretty accurate at the time it was made. Alas, since that time Kallis had a very fortunate (but nonetheless still pretty decent) series in Pakistan and a sensational one once more at home. I was always hopeful, but never optimistic.

    Pah, pitiful. He's played a handful of Tests and he can only get his average up by 5. Kallis, after all those games, manages to raise his career average by 3.

    Interesting to note the voting in the poll - unless I'm mistaken there's only three Aussie respondents who voted for Kallis, and of them, only two support Australia. And from memory one of them is probably one of the biggest (if not the biggest) fans of Kallis on the forum.

    I would be really tempted to go for Kallis, as I just have a thing for really solid guys in the middle order who put a massive premium on their wicket, they can be extremely valuable when the chips are down. And as has been said before, there's still a question mark over Hussey in different conditions round the world, and many people have pointed out in this thread the disparity in longevity (and experience). For some unknown, arbitrary reason I find Hussey really boring anyway, so Kallis' stoicism by comparison isn't a massive negative.

    Of course, as successful as Australia is at the moment, there's obviously a fair argument that we don't need a player like that at present, so I guess it's just a personal preference on my part. Plus, he has a long-time corporate affiliation with Sanex, so our players would have beautifully soft and tender hands and feet.

    Hehe, the Sanex ads featuring him are so arb. Don't really want to see Kallis in the shower tbh.

    Those being Dasa, Rob Cribb and David Hoitink yeah?

    TBH I didn't even know Dasa considered himself Australian, had always thought of him as an Indian who lives in Australia (though IIRR he's lived in Australia all his life). But yes, Rob's certainly Kallis' numero-uno CW fan.

    'Tis interesting that only David of Aussies with no well-established Kallis-love voted for Kallis, but not terribly surprising. Especially considering the time this poll was posted - things possibly could be different if we were to do it again tomorrow.

    Yea, many neutrals seem to have gone the Kallis route though, from what I see.

    Of course he's an Australian! TBH I tend to think of him as a lefty, more than "Indian guy living in Australia", plus he's so anti-national identity anyway.

    But yeah, those were the three I was thinking of (haven't seen much of Corli, so wasn't completely sure there.)...
