    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

    Regardless of what he does from here, that's a genuinely astonishing achievement. Well done to him.

    Philander getting into the ridiculous category now. These stats are mind numbing and he is totally slowing down Styen. Congrats to the lad.

    Nah **** him. He's the ICC games become sentient.

    Though at the same time I feel conflicted because he's taking the torch from McGrath and Pollock in showing the shunts in the media that fast medium bowlers can be the best.

    congrats Philanderer

    now come over to the UAE so that your stats can be pulled down like Steyn's in 2010
    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
