    12 wickets for the day clearly a seamer paradise siddle's performance should be discounted



    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I've seen Marsh bowl some vaguely decent left-arm tweakers too but none of them are in the class of North/Smith/Clarke-pre-back-injury/Katich in terms of semi-regular bowling experience. Those other blokes were all basically batting allrounders.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Or in North's case....

    I guess we were spoiled there for a bit. you look at england and there's not much there bowling wise in the top 6. It's annoying but not distressing

    Yeah but they have Swann, and rarely want to go in without him.

    This Philander looks like he is causing some trouble. Ominous.

    Yeah it's not something you should just automatically expect from a batting lineup but when it doesn't exist it basically limits the times when you can comfortably go in without a spinner from "rarely" to "almost never".

    I certainly think it'd be a good idea for the young batsmen who bowl a bit of both (like Khawaja) to focus on spin whenever they do feel like doing a bit of bowling work though, as Watson's going to make the need for a part-time medium pacer in the team non-existent.

    Want to see how De Lange goes. Looks a decent prospect.

    Might have asked this before, but has anyone seen what Philander clocks on a speed gun?

    Don't know where you've got that from. Checking the commentary, Harris went off in the 143rd over, his 29th, when England were 464/6.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Bowled at about 130 when he had that horrible stint in the South African limited overs setup.
