He once drew an analogy between how much I death-rode Symonds's Test career and how he had felt about Michael Clarke a couple of years earlier when he was first forging his way into Test cricket. I often think of how hard he must be taking it when Clarke plays well, because I can't comprehend how much of a cricket grump I'd be if Symonds's Test career turned out like Clarke's.

Clarke's 150 drive reminds me of Blewett's shot to bring up his 100 when he made that 214. click link for the shot.

Boje wasn't what I'd call a containing type bowler anyway; he was an attacking left arm spinner. He was just usually quite poor. Paul Harris - now there's a containing bowler.
I mean, when you get comfortably outbowled by a part-timer on debut whose first delivery was literally put into a construction site, that says a bit
