    What a ripper of a catch from Laxman. He's having the series of a lifetime. Add that to channel 9's classic catches.

    Oh they do, and there's plenty in World Cricket (particularly the One Day form)

    Gayle
    Pollock
    Kallis
    Flintoff
    Streak

    That's just 5, and all of them can be relied on to score runs and also bowl 10 overs.

    Watson at the moment cannot by any stretch of the imagination, and his domestic one day performances don't suggest he'd be relied on to do it for a long time.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    So how come his captains have only ever given him an average of 5 overs or so a game throughout his one day career?

    If he were a 10 over bowler, you'd expect that figure to be much nearer the 7 or 8 level.

    Perhaps it's because he doesn't actually take that many wickets or bowl that economically?

    Relevance to One Day Cricket?

    I note that despite the average he's only been called on to bowl an average of 13 or 14 overs in a match - that is fill in status, not main bowling status.

    I don't see how - Harvey is a specialist bowler who can swing the bat to good effect on occasion.

    If you replace him with Watson, Watson will be batting down at 8!

    Right now, Michael Clarke is batting at number 7, as does Adam Gilchrist in tests. What's your point? While acknowledging that Harvey's a better bowler than a lot of posters are giving him credit for, I do believe that Watson presents more all-round promise. So did the Australian selectors before Watson was injured and Harvey replaced him in the World Cup tour party.

    Predictions need not come true and I wouldnt even want this one to come true as I want India to win but I do think Zimbabwe will win this one.

    HOW FUNNY
    All positive feedback is welcome & may be directed to me. Just in case you have something negative to say, kindly write it on a clean sheet of paper and throw it in the dustbin. Cognitive dissonance is fatal !!

    The funny thing is, Zimbabwe aren't actually doing that bad, and Pratyush stands a chance of being right... :O

    103 runs to win, 83 balls remaining, 7 wickets in hand, and Ervine and Carlisle both set.

    Grrrrrrrrr...... Pie throwerssssss!!!!! They got far too much bowling.

    Why can't they go for wickets instead? Get in your best bowlers (at least from one end) and set attacking fields.

    20 needed off two overs - Blignaut and Streak, two clean hitters, are in - 5 wickets in hand, but they won't matter that much...

    Can Zimbabwe get there, or will they just miss out against India again? If anybody can do it in this team, these guys can.

    Oh well. With 9 to get off the last over, I really thought they might do it. Poor Streak just couldn't make contact with the ball (the bouncer he left should have been called a no-ball though - it was way over his head).
