    The form of Astle and McMillan must be very worrying to the New Zealand selectors at this point. Undoubtedly, NZ will have to score a fair few runs to compete with this Indian batting machine; and you start to wonder where those runs are going to come from. Richardson and Fleming can't do it all...

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."

    Astle, Styris & Fleming especially were woeful against India 'A', on both occassions their dismissals were more of a case of them just throwing in the towel.

    They tried to dominate the bowlers by smashing fours & sixes when they should have been doing what Mark Richardson did in the 1st innings.

    But I think Astle and Fleming are the two best batsmen in the New Zealand lineup and it'd be foolish to not include the two of them in each and every match they play in India.
    "D'oh!"

    Fleming seems to be in form, but its like he's batting with little time on his hands..im not sure why all of a sudden he's decided to be so aggressive.

    Astle on the other hand IS out of form and it'll be interesting to see whether he makes the starting 11 on Wednesday.

    McMillan seems to be playing alright so he'll probably play in the 1st test..and i'd put Scott Styris under the same comments as Fleming at the moment.

    owing to the lack of penetration shown by the seam attack, what bet on Butler getting a start?

    Astle & Wiseman would be my picks for the drop at this point.

    I watched part of the match and here are the mode of dismissals of those 3 players

    Fleming- Was late in trying to leave a ball outside the off and got an inside edge on to his stumps, didn't watch his dismissal in the 2nd innings.

    Styris - Tried to legglance a ball but it went too fine and the keeper caught a good diving catch , Tried to cut a slightly short of length ball off left arm spinner but managed a top edge and was caught by keeper

    Astle - got a great first ball which cut back in after pitching and caught him in front of the stumps , tried to play it in the midwicket area to a ball which pitched on middle and going to hit leg but he missed it and so was plumb

    I always feel that he's extremely underrated. But I guess he'll be better if left alone till the one dayers.
    You should speak to Marc71178 about that mate . join the Ait Agarkar Apreciation Society (read his sig). but be warned, me and reuben (lord_of_darkness) are completely against him

    I am against it too. I've been trying to get an AAAAS (Anti-AAAS) started, but I lack the funds. :P

    Something apart from cricket makes the news.

    It seems that Fleming made a visit to a dam site to shoot for a liquor advertisement and many people are ****ed off. Reason - "Local politicians say this is sacrilege in Gandhi’s homeland".



    Something more interesting ??

    Congress spokesperson Valji Bagda said, “If this has happened in Rajkot, I am sorry to say that it’s an insult to the people of state and Gandhi.”
    Veteran Gandhian Devendra Desai said, “When I came to know about the incident, I was incensed.”
    New Zealand team manager Lindsay Crocker, while speaking to TNN, did not specify whether the film was shot for Seagram, and said, “I cannot figure out the company in particular but I know that Fleming is serious about the contract he has signed with the cricket division of this company.”
