yep. and seeing 4 men in the deep for Laxman, esp. a long off was ASTOUNDING for me.. He never goes down the track to spinners anymore and he never hit them over mid off even on his best days...
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

Check out this awesome e-fed:
"There has always been a thought that Australian players don't like it when other captains stand up to them. They like to make fun of a Mike Brearley or a Jeremy Coney, but put a Sourav Ganguly or an Arjuna Ranatunga in front of them - someone who stands up and mouths off -and they hate it." - Jarrod Kimber
What exactly has gone on with Ishant since he burst onto the scene in Australia ? Is he jsut now still being picked on that potential and reputation ?
For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke
EDIT: He had that Test against South Africa; did okay in Sri Lanka; did well against Australia and England in India and cashed in against Bangladesh. He has not spent much time outside the subcontinent and so there are some good performances mentioned above along with some mediocre ones imbetween.

The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.
Anyone reckon Praveen Kumar should get a go in the test side? Bowling can't get any worse anyway.
