    m.waugh couldn't get picked because everybody though he was too one-dayery, too flashy.

    as opposed to steve waugh, who was sorta kept in the test team during the time between his debut and Mark's debut on his OD form.
    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

    I prefer to call it the Dark Age, rather than the Golden Era, TBH.
    Do I contradict myself?
