    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

    When are the Aussies going to announce their squad?

    Fingers crossed Harris is fit and Copeland isn't bombed. As for the rest they will probably be the same as SL with Bollinger in for Beer maybe as they won't need 2 spinners on a tour to SA when the pacemen will do the damage and the strength the Aussies have is pace over spin.

    Looking forward to this series, not so much the one dayers but they will pass the odd day as they are on at a good time over here.

    Australia will go ahead of South Africa in the rankings if they beat them 2-0, ftr.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    When England were there in 2009/10 Swann was MOTS, I know that's more to do with Swann himself but still the pitches did take spin.

    I tried to use the predictor but even though the ratings updated three days ago, there's still the SL series there to fill out the fields for.

    I'd be very tempted to have Bollinger in the squad ahead of a spinner to tour SA.

    They need to come out and admit fault though to do that, as he hasn't had any chance to prove his fitness by playing FC cricket.

Occasionally breaking it might be ok, but we won't be going higher than 4th if we don't adhere to it.
    Some are saying Siddle has the edge over Copeland because of third test. I think its completely BS. Copeland did all the hard work on that test. All Siddle did was get in there and clean up the tail after all the hard work was done by Copeland.

    He was the most successful bowler for Australia in the ODI series. So they might pick him just for that. They should because he looks in pretty good touch.

    Time to move on from Doug, for mine.

    Unless injuries, I never want to see two of him, Johnson, Siddle, Hilfenhaus in the same attack.

    Ok but all of that list Dougeh has by far the best record

    well perhaps not far, but he's clearly got the wood on Hilf and Siddle
