    I can't be bothered going through all the posts, so if anyone advocates Australia declaring at 550 or the like would someone please shoot them for me.
    I came to the conclusion, from the bits and pieces I saw today, that Clarke doesn't have a lot of respect for Tahir or Morkel.

    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.

    Tahir was so bad. I mean, PEWS has gone way OTT today but he's right when it comes to Tahir, he was absolutely abysmal. Couldn't get through an over without a long hop or a full toss. Not just the batting either - bowled a ****load of pies post-tea which got smacked to fielders.

    srsly, there would be some people who couldn't understand how hard it is to play that shot. On drive is the hardest to play in cricket. **** he nailed it.

    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

    Yeah Tahir has bowled as bad as I've ever seen a visiting spinner.

    In fact, it's not even a competition. Worst by miles. Looked absolutely 2nd grade standard. And that's no way an exaggeration.

    Trying to dig up the post where Prez said no to playing Robbie P instead of Tahir and that Tahir was the way forward.

    What his ability with that bat means is also that Tsolekile could come in for Duminy without weakening the overall batting of the South Africans.

    Well, he got one thing spot on: they've moved away from containing alright.

    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
