    Umm, I'm never going to be in a blogosphere, but to be honest it's no mystery, he's relentlessly good against us, it's as simple as that, there's no stylistic points to grab onto like Ponting, he is horribly functional. Really the question should be is what is there to like from an english perspective?

    So you dont like him because he has great record against England? That makes him a good player and captain, an enemy worth respect, right?

    No there's more to it than that.

    When he first emerged he was a tubby blow-hard who told tales out of school (an early nickname was "The Witness", after he gave evidence against Matthew Hayden when the latter had said some nasty things to the poor, fragile little lamb) whose idea of leading from the front was to go and bat at #5 when he couldn't lay bat on the swinging ball.

    He's matured now, but early on his idea of leading from the front was being a massive cock and badmouthing players who'd paid their dues and, in some instances, whose jockstrap he wasn't fit to carry.

    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

    If I hated anyone who did well against England I'd have a pretty shallow pool of cricketers I didn't actively despise.

    Ironically Kallis's record against us isn't that flash and I've never been a real admirer of his.

    starting to get through some counties now. impressive given he's now a regular at international level and the role of journeymen overseas pro is normally reserved for those not playing international cricket

    Apparently Lanky have signed Simon Katich for next season - will be delighted if that turns out to be true

    Yeah, developing a habit of stealing our players it would seem.

    Hants did offer him a deal but he turned it down, is very apparent that we can no longer compete on wages, imagine him and Kabir were on a fair amount.

    Not overly troubled with losing Katich though, especially if Mckenzie comes back. Really hoping we can get an overseas bowler instead.

    Yes excellent signing just what Lancs need, a reliable, experienced performer in that middle order.

    Rob Key has stood down as Kent captain after seven years in the role. An extremely likeable chap,imo, and tactically a very switched on skipper. There's nothing in the reports to suggest he's retiring from cricket, which is a good thing, because I'm sure he still has plenty to offer Kent as a batsman and also I expect he will be a big help to new skipper James Tredwell.

    Interesting shout for Fat Bob's replacement. To be polite, Tredwell has never struck one as an especially deep thinker...
