    He's 28 and with his fitness issue, I'm not sure he will even be playing at that age.

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."

    Yeah Bond is 28, so he's no rookie anymore.

    I reckon he'll be able to go another 3 years with his current pace & then maybe he'll either have to cut his run-up & aim for accuracy or his back will tell him its time to give it away.

    Physically I think its easier for a batsmen to last longer than a bowler...I mean Wasim Akram tried to do it but during the last couple of years batsmen played him off fairly easily whereas Steve Waugh is still able to churn out the hundreds.

    I'm amazed by Courtney Walsh. When he retired, he was still at the top of his game. I think he took 25 wickets (?) against SA in his final series.

    Yes, he had no pace, but he was still a formidable opponent, I watched most of it on TV. He was outstanding until the very end...

    Lots of people open in one day games that wouldn't go near it in longer games.

    SRT, Gilly and Neil Carter for example.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Well at least Shane Bond has a job with the New Zealand police force when he retires.

    Parthiv Patel is a very much above average gloveman from what I've seen of him. He's also a useful lower order bat. Sigh.... gone are the days when wicketkeepers got any real acclaim for their 'keeping rather than their batting...

    His keeping was superb against WI and nz :rolleyes: . Maybe he will get recognition after the Ind -AUS series which many will be watching.
