    Asian cricketers fitness

    An interesting article on cricinfo regarding the fitness of Asian cricketers.

    Different Strokes | Cricket Blogs | ESPN Cricinfo

    The article is reasonably well written but why is he using Shane Watson an example of fitness?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Cricinfo always seems to write an article right after the topic it's on has been discussed numerous times on CW.

    Haha yeah, it's pretty amusing and I really don't think it's usually a coincidence either, although this time it just might be given the discussion here and the article were both essentially reactions to the whitewash.

    That said, if you wrote articles for cricinfo, wouldn't you scout internet forums for potential topic ideas?

    Precisely. Unless a regular poster here is already working undercover for Cricinfo... Would explain the number of times Rob's videos get mentioned there as well

    Curses. My cunning disguise has been foiled.

    (I actually did do this during my YP internship, so you're not far off.)
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Lol, Shane Watto as example for fitness = epic fail.

    Who do you think is the fittest guy in cricket at the moment?

    Has to be a fast bowler (probably Steyn). Not too sure though.

    Firstly, there's a difference between structural damage and muscular damage. In cricket, one tends to be related to technique, and the other is much more likely to occur due to conditioning (or lack of). Watson encountered pretty much the first during most of his career, and was what held him back.

    Secondly, he's been pretty durable over the past 36 months, enduring probably the heaviest workload of the Australian players.
