    Paul Adams - another terrible waste of a marvellous talent.

    If the SA selectors had to choose between Nicky Boje and Paul Adams, the decision would easily be Boje because of his batting ability, although Adams can bat a little bit.

    I still like Adams to be in the side, but i do not see how, unless they have two spinners. This would be out of the usual considering SA normally has a pace heavy attack.

    SA doesn't need any more spinners. Terry Jenner's deterioration over the latter part of his career proves that slow bowling is just that... SLOW. Any decent batsman can hit a slow ball over the fence no matter how many fancy tricks the slow bowler pulls. Warne got most of his wickets because his victims simply CAN'T BAT. Any clown with half an **** cheek left in his pants can see that!

    To be perfectly honest, Paul Adams looks like a frog in a blender when he bowls.

    What is it with you and uphill gardening?

    Is it a passion of yours?

    Or did you have a bad experience with it in your youth?

    Your sly dig at the plight of Korean rice farmers with bad knees is very very unbecoming.

    LongHop - please....your sarcasm is not appreciated. Why dont you educate yourself and do some research and then you might know.

    I'm struggling to find good sources of uphill gardening research.

    Little help?

    Where is any relevance at the plight of Korean rice farmers with bad knees?

    Yes, he's not good enough to get in as a spinner alone though I don't think. None of them are. They are hopelessly short of spinners.

    Craig,

    My goodness don't you bother to read the paper? There is a big wide world out there mate and much of it ain't pretty. Uphill gardening is one of the biggest problems in the rice industry today - you try sewing oats on an incline! And on top of that the USA oversubsidises their own toothless hillbillies which impacts hugely on the global warming problem. There have been numerous studies carried out to prove this over the years yet you sit there in your comfort zone on the kebab-stained couch in your Kmart undies worshipping a bunch of overpaid peroxided baked bean eaters and people who don't know how to chew gum properly.

    Jonesy,
    Kids these days just dont follow the news. No wonder theyre so pig ignorant. I mean they dont even know what uphill gardening is when its one of the biggest problems facing the african continent and its struggle to get out of the cruel cycle of perpetual plodding.
