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
Christ is there a single thread you won't make AFL references in? Dire and boring.
geeeeeee this is a bold move by the ECB, isn't it?
Sending text messages which say how crap you think your management/colleagues are to a competing individual/firm/team/whatever would be considered a serious breach of conduct in nearly any profession. There's nothing sad at all about it.
Steyn was probably pissed that KP was making him look like a net bowler in the last test and by 'mistake' disclosed these personal texts.

He's a fantastic player, let's not deny that, but there comes a time when the management must draw a line; cliche as it is, no individual is bigger than the team. Clearly as far as Team England are concerned KP reached and then breached the line at some point during or after the second test.

- As featured in The Independent.
"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
and as I keep on saying, and it seems to be washed up with the rest, it contravenes ICC rules, which is enough reason to drop him in itself, and the Saffie players may have reported it for that reason. With their history they probably don't want to be in breach.
Its just a continuation in the history of KP's battle with modern technology. He was undone by the complexities of twitter just last year, and now it seems the slightly older more experienced foe, text messaging, has got one over him as well. These fancy gizmos are tough to tame.
