    Uthappa and Kumble don't play in the same team mind you.

    Hardly needed a new thread for mine.

    Hayden vs. Uthappa would be cool though, the battle of the big chested openers.

    He shouldn't, can't see Uthappa deserving a test spot over some others, but you never know.

    Interesting article, mostly because of an anecdote I heard about Allan Border. When he felt flat, as though he wasn't batting well, he'd just try and pick a fight with someone. If an opposition player walked past, he might just say, "What the **** are you looking at? Show some respect" or something, start up a bit of verbal and he found he batted better when he was in that sort of situation, where the stakes had been raised. Have heard a few times now about Hayden sledging, and it seems to be in a similar manner.

    Robin Uthappa has Sir Neville Cardus's seal of approval. He is easily my favourite current Indian cricketer. Give him a Test slot.

    I think Robin's and India's philosophy is perfectly fine. Don't initiate the sledging but return the favour if your team is being sledged. Indian teams of the past have been far too mild and as a result hardly ever won anything away from home.

    Yeah, Michael Atherton sometimes did the same in a domestic match, because he said he occasionally struggled to motivate himself for such games. He also mentioned how they made a decision in 1997 to be completely silent to Stephen Waugh because they (finally) noticed that he thrived on it, in their 3rd series against him since he became a World-class batsman. Waugh, of course, spotted this before long and in the Old Trafford Test, according to Atherton, said "OK, you're not talking to me are you? Right then, I'll talk to myself". And after being given not-out when he was plumb lbw 1st ball he faced in the match, he did, throughout his twin centuries.

    Pretty poor that, abusing other players just because you aren't playing well.

    Less a case of not playing well, as being unable to raise one's competetive juices.

    Not to mention battle of the hopeleslly-planted-front-foot-and-hence-massive-inswinger-candidate types.

    Heck, even C_C made that comparison!
