    finished the sentence for you
    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

    Well.
    Can't believe anyone would argue differently tbh. He also looked the most likely to bowl pies and get hammered of course but he always looked like he could bowl a jaffa and take a wicket.

    If he's going to bowl like that every Test then he shouldn't be playing but he also showed why people rate him.

He should do until we find a our next spinner.
    He seemed to change the way he bowled when the tail came in trying to buy wickets but Starc got into a very good rhythm against him. At least he can bat unlike a certain Tahir who also opens a gourmet pie shop when he comes on.

    Series ratings:

    Warner 6 - scored a ton, not that much else.
    Cowan 6 - ditto.
    Quiney 1 - two tests and didn't really do anything.
    Ponting 1 - made the right call to go
    Clarke 10 - just wow.
    Hussey 9 - still gun at 37.
    Wade 4 - decent innings at Perth, not much else. Not good with the gloves.
    Siddle 6 - trier. Not a standout but did well enough.
    Hilfenhaus 4 - lacked effectiveness against the best bowlers. Why we need McDermott back.
    Pattinson 5 - only bowled in three innings
    Lyon 6 - bowled with guts at times. Wouldn't want to bowl like the 2nd innings at Perth though.
    Watson 5 - nothing good. Nothing bad either though.
    Johnson 6 - was generally pretty good at Perth, although didn't have the same impact that he could've had.
    Starc 6.5 - not a great 5-fer but it was the most wickets in one innings. Bonus points for his batting.
    Hastings 1 - won't forget the 2nd innings quickly.
    Smith 7 - some good innings although was somewhat overshadowed.
    A Peterson 6 - got his sides decent starts.
    Amla 9 - 2 centuries is always a good look.
    Kallis 9 - he did it with injury, too.
    De Villiers 8 - they should really give someone else the gloves.
    Rudolph 2 - didn't really add anything.
    Duminy n/a - sadly got injured before he could anything.
    Kleinveldt 3 - one good spell, not much else otherwise.
    Philander 3 - generally seemed ineffective.
    Steyn 6 - pretty meh compared to usual.
    Morkel 7 - didn't bowl so awesome but still took wickets.
    Du Plessis 10 - saved Adelaide and changed the course of Perth. This was despite it being his first series. Christ.
    R Peterson 7.5 - helped change the course of Perth and took some crucial wickets. Pretty good test IMO.
    Tahir 0 - hahahahaha
    Elgar 0 - when Johnson owns you....
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Think maybe Hussey rated too highly. He played his role well in the first two tests but came in when the bowling was already a bit ragged. In Perth he struggled with the extra pace and more switched on bowlers.

    at least two full tests-

    Warner 6
    Cowan 6
    Ponting 1
    Clarke 10
    Hussey 7.5
    Wade 5
    Siddle 6
    Hilfenhaus 4
    Lyon 5

    Smith 7
    A Peterson 5
    Amla 9.5 (single-handedly changed the momentum of the decisive perth test)
    Kallis 7.5
    De Villiers 6.5
    Rudolph 1
    Kleinveldt 2
    Philander 4 - sees adelaide road, wakes up with an injury gambhir style.
    Steyn 6
    Morkel 8.5
    Du Plessis 10

    Single-handedly is a bit inaccurate, Smith did his bit.
