    Why were they comparing RP with Aamer?

    The difference in Irfan Pathan and RP Singh being that Irfan was perfoming very well before his injury in FC while RP was ****.

    Irfan also was gaining form and looking fit during the IPL and RP was **** even in that and looking out of order. Also Irfan gives a option of playing 5 bowlers to offset the loss of Zaheer with no need to ****ing bowl Raina while RP doesn't.

    Ah come on now, I've been petitioning for Irfan Pathan to play (owing to the fact he's a pure sack of **** against anyone who isn't Bangladesh or Zimbabwe).

    I'd say if his next Ranji season is good, then Irfan should be put into the Test set up - he has been in good form in Ranji Trophy and his conditioning is good. I disagree that him or Dhoni are good enough batsmen for us to go with five bowlers though. Irfan at eight and Harbhajan at nine will be a strong lower order, for once.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    The artist who did that painting in this doco used a fair bit of licence in making Murali's arm so straight.

    It's not just not taking a wicket. It's about not looking to take a wicket either. Dire stuff.....

    I've been checking several websites. Of course, they disgaree heavily.... But, imho, things will improve from here, so there should be play from tea until close, I guess.... Tomorrow will be sunny.

    Yep, exactly. The less you play, the better you get - in perception anyway.

    "Whatever happened to X?" is a common question uttered by frustrated fans of losing teams. Unfortunately, X was more than likely found out, dropped, declined further and has since settled into life as a middling domestic performer. And RP Singh's case, all that is actually pretty flattering.

    Looks like there could still be some play later.
