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:
"This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers." - 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.
