    i think that it is in New Zealands favour. I fully admire the opening partnership, but, some wrong decisions by the empires was unlucky, even though they are made all the time by all empires. GO MACCA is mostly wat i can say. But the reason i think it is in NZ's favour is, how many times have u seen the 5 absolutely world class batsman get out for all under ten!!!
    well, wat can i say. I'm perfect!

    You are right actually.

    I was intrigued by King Pontings digging up the Murali bowling with a astraight arm thread to make a comment on his doosra. I was going to post saying this is a good way to avoid a new thread on Murali which stands a better than even chance of being closed

    Then I thiought it wasnt fair on KP.

    Out of curiosity, I thought to check out the oldest post on a thread (which was the last post. I found one of 1970's !! I dont know what that thread was supposed to be. didnt know this forum was that old. But that thread was closed. This thread was the next above.
    So just for a lark I posted this

    The 1970 one is obviously a mistake, we've seen it before.

    Oh, thanks for crushing our dream.

    Maybe this forum is a dynasty of sorts, with the current Nixon as James XXVII.

    Someone, think it might have been Karthik, linked to the thing once, in OT IIRR.
    I can't remember if anyone actually explained how it's happened.
    The oldest thread in CC is closed; I dug-up the oldest diggable one once.
