    Ok, I've read the executive summary which was, as the modern day, time poor, cricket fan on the go all I had the energy to follow, particularly for a write up on a rusty ol test series. Got a pretty good grip on things though. Was the rest of it any good?

    Yadav's going to be quite a conundrum for India going forward because there is a fair bit of potential there. However, I just can't see him being a partnership bowler, and helping the bloke down the other end. There's going to be times where he's a massive liability, and the way that India go about things at their best with the ball is when they are reliable and build pressure (see, spinners at home plus Zaheer).

    Upset tbh that benchy fed me such a load of bull**** when he tried to persuade me to ghost his autobiography for him - in light of such overwhelming evidence that in fact he can string more than two sentences together I'm downing tools on the "Don't Monkey With This ****" project with immediate effect

    Wow have to say I sat and read through all of that and thought it was an exceptional post which was bang on the money and better that any of the stats gibberish that all these other Statguru wannabes throw around. The only conclusion that I can come to however is that benchmark00 has been hacked.

    Made some good points, but it was very poorly written IMO.

    Q) Do you think India would have played better had the majority of their players used Kookaburra bats?
    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

    Need to go back to the Hero Honda's and Britania's which brought them so much success in the past.
