    bringing it back to warner, much like gilchrist in ODI's in fact, if you want him to open he would actually be a candidate for a 100/0 pattern, and if you acknowledge that and have someone solid coming in a 3 you can create a different and useful arrangement.

    I actually think we need to learn who out of huss and punt we need to move on after this summer, because I can't see either giving it up, or us moving forward with the both of them there.
    50 and 50 is just another way of saying two medium range scores, and 100 and 0 is just another way of saying a small hundred and a very small score. It's not intended at all to mean literally only those scores, is just an example used for simplicity.

    Shane Watson innings guide:

    Phase 1 - belt a few classy looking shots to the boundary, accumulate 20 or 30 runs really quickly.

    Phase 2 - run out opening partner.

    Phase 3 - get bogged down by opposition spinner. Whack one ball over midwicket for 6. Continue to get bogged down.

    Phase 4 - milk applause of crowd as you reach your half century. Take a fresh guard and a moment to regain your concentration. Nick next ball to the cordon.

    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

    Surprised that they weren't a little more imaginative with the Adelaide squad, given the cloud over Watson. The extra bowler in the first three days is almost essential in Adelaide and, as tidy as Quiney's Gabba offerings were, he's no more than a trundler. Certainly I think Moises or an allrounder of his ilk should have at least been part of the squad

    Quiney's action reminds me a lot of Kemar Roach for whatever reason

    Yeah straight-up I don't think Quiney's bowling should come into calculations any more than Mussey's does. Needs to live or die by his blade.

    South Africa in Australia 2012-13 : Thami Tsolekile plays down race comment | Cricket News | Australia v South Africa | ESPN Cricinfo

    Tsolekile WAG.

    Reckon George will look back upon his comments in the future and realise he was being an arse. I actually agree that Tsolekile should be in the team but to put it down to race is ridiculous. I think it was a bit of backlash from Ntini after all the comments from fans about Tsolekile being a quota selection, which I disagree with. Seriously reckon he is the best man for the job.

    He's proven himself more over the past few seasons than any other gloveman.
