    They tour there next winter/summer though dont they.

    Personally, I wouldn't be in too much of a hurry to tour Australia.
    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."

    I could never quite work out how Cricinfo worked that out.

    I think matches before a certain date were discounted?

    In fact looking there it's shown by the quote:

    Only Test series since 1 August 2001 count towards the ICC Test Championship table

    :P

    Now look at the matrix again and see SA v WI, SL v Aus etc etc

    Plenty pre-2001 in there.

    Craig's right.

    Australia 3-0 Sri Lanka

    Having remembered I have a copy of Wisden two feet away, I also add:

    1989-90: Australia 1-0 Sri Lanka (1 draw)
    1987-88: Australia 1-0 Sri Lanka

    Gavin Ewing is a class act. He is a really good batter and spinner. But Zimbabwe will really have their work cut out... Streak says they'll be happy drawing but I will be pleased if Zim can take it into 5 days. Stuart Matsikenyeri could have a great future. I saw him hit 55 against Somerset back in June and I think he is a really talented batsman.

    Welcome to the forums!

    I think Zimbabwe are open for a bigger annihilation than Bangladesh got in July because they are on the way down as opposed to the Tigers, who are definitely on the way up.

    As for Matsikenyeri, I was of the opinion that he was nothing more than a ZCU-sponsored token black, but he didn't do too bad a job this summer, so I'm yet to damn him into the eternal gates of oblivion. Still, if he averages above 10 I'll be surprised.

    Whereabouts in Devon are you from?

    Welcome Chubb. I have never heard of Gavin Ewing before, so who knows, he could be a surprise packet for Zim?

    Here is my profile on him that I wrote for CW. Hopefully Andre might put them up sometime when I've finished them all

    I'm from Kilmington, a village about 1/2 an hour from Exeter. My family is originally from Essex, which is why I support them. And because someone I know plays for them.

    I'm starting at University in Exeter on Sunday.

    Right, back to the cricket:

    Zimbabwe A (and a fairly strong side at that) beat Namibia twice in two 3-day games played at the end of August but lost the one-day series 2-1

    Jan-Berrie Burger brought back World Cup memories. This guy is good.

    Totally OT but those three hundreds by The Guru, Tillakeratne and Jayasuriya were all absolute class. Tillakeratne's and Jayasuriya's were probably the two best but all three were something special in what was otherwise a walkover.
