RIP Fardin Qayyumi and Craig Walsh - true icons of CricketWeb.
tbf Warne was up against some pretty ****ty opponents
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
Yeah, if he'd been in that round with Kallis, Botha and Ajmla, reckon he would have gone through.

"It is hard to see how this could be an isolated occurrence for you." - Justice Cooke hands down his judgment on the above quote
"I am hopeful that I will come out of the problem that I found myself in unwittingly." - Which problem, Mohammad?

LongHopCassidy clearly rooting for a Hayden victory. and why not. he's a ****
Brad McNamara @bbuzzmc
Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Haha I wouldn't be surprised if Asif won the whole thing. Put in Hayden on the same grounds as Kallis in his tendency to attract witch-hunts on CW.
But I did want to see Warne go through, a discussion on ****s wouldn't be complete without him.
