    Isn't Thorpey involved with our batting on some level too? Pretty sure I remember him featuring in the Loins docu Sky showed during the SA series.

    Was a great player of spin, but clearly his charges failing to follow the great man's lead.

    - 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

    At a bare minimum, it forces the bowler to think.

    Might want to at least try the defensive shot though

    Thanks! Yeah, was surprised initially to see Ojha's figures, compared to Ashwin's, suggest otherwise.

    Ha, man. Ordinary effort from Zaheer on the rope there.

    Stooped like an arthritic family retainer.

    he has been a total liability hasn't he?

    should go in with harby instead of zaheer if the next pitch is a turner. zaheer is too slow now to be effective

    Deals with the kids not the senior team. Rates Root very highly by all accounts.

    If this is a taste of things then it might be 4-0 to India
    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

    TBF I think he's bowled ok, definitely got more movement than our muppets, setting a low bar as that may be.

    Probably quicker than any of them too.

    His fielding betrays his vintage tho. What is he now? 34?

    Well that was just strange. Surely Zaheer could have fielded that?
