    So you admit it's all quiet on the Australian front, then you reserve the right to start ****-stirring when you feel like having a go? In half a dozen theads no less, tantamount to a grand announcement of your arrival to come piss people off.

    No. You don't get that right. Save it for someone who actually supports their team. You haven't earned it.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Whats that got to do with the current thread? I started it long back and came to bump it after seeing Ajmal bowl quite well.

    I had conceded much before the Aussie tour that India are not going to win it.

    Now Ajmal is looking a lot better. Only spinner that made Sam look silly. Not even Warne managed that feat against Sam.

    I'd take Ajmal every day if the player down the other end is a fleet footed sub continental batsman.

    We'll probably have to wait for the series to end first, but as it seems, Ajmal is going to give Swann a good fight for that no.1 spinner spot.

    Saeed Ajmal to Swann, FOUR, 86.4 kph, Swann gets one tossed up so generously that it takes the variations out of the way. Swann reaches out easily to the flight and clatters it through the covers for four.


    Saeed Ajmal to Swann, FOUR, 82.4 kph, Swann's taking his counterpart on. Another good-looking off drive, this time over mid-off. Swann leans out, gets to the flight again and drives sumptuously.

    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

    Swann i would rate ahead of him right now, but Ajmal is a pretty tricky spinner who can trouble even the best with his variations.

    Chucking or not doesn't really matter as long as he is allowed to bowl.
    Yeah, this.

    I think Ajmal is a much better player these days and looks like he's steadily improved. I wouldn't say he's better than Swann as yet but he's certainly second best.

    Yes, from the looks of it.

    Swann's wickets + Swann's runs > Ajmal's wickets + Ajmal's runs this series.



    Well it makes about as much sense as that average + economy thing Athlai did in the APS thread anyway....
