    1. They also praised Benn too so needless to say in your book that means "they don't know what they are talking about" .

    2. He's took 1 wicket in 4 games..yep that's amazing stuff!! .

    As for this game it's as good as over already, but the way the commentators are talking you'd think the Aussies were beating South Africa.

    1. It's baffling really.
    2. Still been WI's best bowler, despite being generally poor at OD cricket. Says more about the lack of quality of the others than the quality of Miller, mind.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    He just hasn't looked threatening enough to me, he can get a maiden or two but if he can't get a wicket sooner or later he's gonna be expensive, the spinner who looks like he's taking his game to the next level is Kavesh Kantasingh, the last time we spoke about him you wrote him off but the kid is really starting to hit form now, he's now got 21 wickets, including five in his current game against Jamaica, the good thing about him is he's getting maidens too and he's got the ability to clean bowl batters with his spin, five of his wickets have come that way, Imran Khan hasn't even clean bowled anyone yet, i really think Kantasingh might surprise a few people.

    What a waste of space Dowlin is!!, we've certainly started well though and it's good to see Gayle get his act together at last.

    Good win by the Aussies, took the foot off the pedal once they got a few wickets but still easily contained it for an crushing win.

    He's changed it as well; used to be even more interesting.

    Happy to see Pollard and Deonarine get some runs. Pleasantly surprised to see Dwayne Smith having played what appears to be a mature, restrained innings. Fell asleep shortly after the start of the innings though.

    Mature and restrained my ****ing arse. He plays like a complete clown for a 70-game career then when he comes across a situation where he actually needs to score his runs really, really quickly, he decides he'd rather practice his forward defensive a bit. With maybe the odd six in between, as long as it's not enough to give your side an actual chance.

    Alright, it was always a long shot by the time he got to the crease, but that's no excuse not to even try to reach the target. He didn't even get to his career strike rate!

    Tbh, in a lost cause, I'd prefer to see Dwayne Smith prove that he actually can play with some restraint, than hit a couple of sixes and fall going for a third.

    Ah, I like my players to actually try to win a cricket match instead. That's where we differ.
