    Great work Yuvraj with a brilliant 169.

    If he makes 81 next innings his average will be exactly 40 in which case I would lose, cause I said over 40.00, so 82 next innings, or a nice not out!

    Hope Cook gets amongst it. I dunno why I bet on Cook, it's not as though I want him to do well. Hopefully Smith does worse though.

    Your comments on McCullum's knock last night please Prince?

    I imagine he'll say that this was one of the "odd occasions".

    Won't happen. Can't get bat on anything other than the spinners, and when he does he can only defend.


    And to think, I was there to see it.

    Might have to review my thoughts on Dale Steyn though, as I've seen a fair bit more of him now. I was a bit harsh with my earlier assessment, but I'd still like to see how he goes against Australia and also on some flatter pitches.

    Yeah, I think Australia could get hold of him in Australia - he does tend to spray it a bit when he's off his game, and he doesn't react the best when he's attacked. I don't think he'll have too many issues on flatter pitches against other teams though.

    I still don't think he's a sub-25 average bowler though. He hasn't played the best team in the world, and averages about 30 away from home. To date, he has only really performed consistently well at home, and feasted on some limp New Zealand batting.

    Johnson robbed of a 100 was the best thing about this test.

    Gun batsmen.

    Regretting making that bet now, NUF?

    The only thing that could stand in Johnson's way of scoring a test ton is his bowling. If he keeps his place in the team, it will come. Mark my words.

    Yeah, I mean, he was only dropped twice and bowled off a no-ball.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Symonds has two test centuries. Enough said.

    I've marked your words tbh.

    I suppose if Pathan has made a century Johnson could, but.. he still needs the right conditions and needs a batsmen you can handle staying in his crease.

    Symonds is a class above Johnson with the bat and you know it.
