    He did seem very reliant on that clip to leg, didnt he? Will be interesting to see if he can get back to something like his old form, even if not quite so productive.

    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

    Look, by all means keep preparing these pitches. All it does is produce the attitude which leads to the recent away pizzlings that have been dished out. But it doesn't matter, so long as you win at home. Mindless.
    To win away from home you need ATGs in your team, nothing to do with pitches. Pitches would naturally differ geographically. There aren't any ATGs playing atm in world cricket a bunch of very good cricketers. Now bend over and feel the pain.

    No you don't need all time greats to win away from home. That's just a crazy mindset, Bun.

    For an extended period anyway, instead of a one off. History suggests that

    You make countless posts taking the piss, often bordering on outright bigotry and stereotyping an entire country based on the fans', admittedly often ****ty, atittude. Stop getting your..things in a twist.

    Anyway, back to the topic at hand..by the same token, since Australia haven't exactly been painting themselves in glory over their past two trips here, shouldn't they start making turners as well? It looks to me that you're basically underselling all cricket played out here. Fine, it doesn't make for aesthetic viewing; I prefer watching the summer cricket in Australia also. But until you guys start preparing pitches aiding spin in your countries, you can't hope to do too well either. Unless you're OK with that. We hate to see our team play like little girls on tour, but you seem inclined to just criticize the pitches here.
