    Philander is swing bowler like Anderson and Steyn, whereas Broad is better at using the pitch. He was the only one in UAE who was regularly getting wickets by seaming the ball.

    it's a bit difficult to say, because really, we're basing it off 1-2 good years/7-10 good matches

    Philander's best asset is the movement he gets off the pitch tbh.

    Na he's a seam bowler, almost exclusively.

    Yeah Philander is more of a seam bowler than Broad tbh, who is a more "mixed" bowler who tends to change his MO a bit depending on conditions

    Must be a result of you being an Eels supporter. Always wanting to go at half time.
    Interestingly, September of the same year marked the third in a row I'd been to the SCG on grand final day to watch the Eels towel a hapless Manly outfit. Was a historic day in Australian sporting history as Bob Hawke addressed the crowd. He remains to this day the only politician I've ever heard get a unanimous ovation at an Australian sporting event.

    Never forget the 81 GF when the boys kicked promotional footies into the crowd and my grandmother leapt high over the pack to grab the one Sterlo kicked. We were sitting next to the Bob Stand. Was a top grab.

    such a top bloke. If there was one success story I would like to see come to fruition for the Aus team over the next few years, it would be Phil Hughes.

    Phil Hughes isn't someone you'd normally associate with the 'good bloke' tag itbt. Very focused individual, but is still polite.

    Reckon he's just a bit reserved. It's not a bad thing but it's pretty typical of country people.

    Think it's fair to say The Prince has very little country left in him...
