    Haven't seen any of this series, but not convinced about Ashwin being a thrower. Saw quite a bit of him in the IPL, and there's a small kink in his action, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was more an elbow rotation than an extention/flexion.

    If an average of 40.23 is beating the "ultimate test for him", then yes it is pretty daft.

    I'd think about Patel (or Blackwell ) in for Morgan (or to remove my bias, I'll even pretend Morgan is James Taylor) if the pitch was going to be really unresponsive to fast bowling, but while England's 7-11 are probably all good enough to go up a place I still don't think bringing in Panesar for a batsman would really improve the team in any conditions. The batting is a bigger chance of having an off day and getting rolled than *that* bowling attack is of collectively bowling pies for an innings IMO, even on a pitch that looks flat at the toss.

    Been hearing that ever since Ajmal started bowling...get over it. Its hard to pick his doosra.

    Ajmal is no where close to the level of Swann and thats a fact.

    Another fact is that Ajmal's action is with in the legal bounds of ICC's rules so no need to call names as chucker and stuff....one of the greatest names in spin bowling was the reason why there is a law in place to bend the arm with in 15 degrees...

    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

    Yes brother. Ajmal possess the true attributes of the #1 spinner in the World.

    Swann was outbowled by-

    1. An IPL find (Ashwiin)
    2. A second change bowler (Raina)
    3. A third change nothing bowler (Tiwary)
    4. Ravi Jadeja

    I think the new English spinner bowled better than Swann in the solitary game he got. The myth of Swann being "World Class" has been shattered on the pitches where he should've atleast proved something.

    oh so you are comparing them in ODIs?

    I think most people are discussing how good test match bowlers they are
