    what does Geoff Boycott have to say on this?

    "Siddhartha Talya: Welcome once again to Bowl at Boycs. I'm Siddhartha Talya and it's a pleasure as always to be joined by Geoffrey Boycott, who's speaking to us from Dubai today.

    Geoffrey, England have been whitewashed 3-0. Are you shocked? Depressed? Surprised? What's your reaction?

    Geoffrey Boycott: No, I'm not depressed, because the cricket was fantastic. I enjoyed every second of it. It was just riveting. I was surprised. I thought England would make a much better fist of it. You expect talented players to be able to adapt to conditions, and they didn't. They were found wanting. They were as bad as India are when India travel abroad. And they were bad in the subcontinent, were England. "
    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

    I've said plenty of times that the quality of Pakistan's bowling, combined with the ineptitude of England's batting means that the scoreline was a fair one.

    That doesn't stop it from being massively frustrating. England got themselves into positions where they should have won 2 of the Tests. What should happen and what does happen are two massively different things though.

    Can say the exact same thing about India vs. Australia in the MCG test, and the series is different if they are 1-0 up.

    But you won't hear anyone sensible saying that because its fairly useless. Saying England could have won 2-1 is a massive stretch imo.
    The bowling in England's 2nd innings at Trent Bridge is probably the worst collective effort I've ever seen in a Test tbh.

    The problem is when you say "should" have won. With this team in these conditions, it is quite obvious they were never in a position to say we should have won this game.

    BCCI questions Ajmal's action

    Please god let it be so.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Heard about that, but the ICC have again stood by Ajmal. Sorry to ruin your party Brumbs.

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!

    I would rather he be tested again. If he passes the testing, he would've done so twice and would hopefully quite the critics. If he fails, then obviously he shouldn't be bowling the doosra.

    Indeed, it will be just like with Amir. The **** gets heaps of wickets against us, then gets banned before the next series.

    We failed in the Pakistan series by more deliveries than just Ajmal's doosra.

    I'll kill the suspense and make the obvious remark about how India are suddenly requesting the assistance of technology after years of dedication to the Luddite cause.

    Complaining after a win is also much better form than whinging after you got your ass kicked. Bcci have done that before too, but hopefully now they've learnt their lesson.

    Whinging is still whinging regardless of its timing.
