    Seem to recall a serious cricket-writer somewhere describing then-Bangladesh captain Khaled Mahmud as "an allrounder in physique only"....

    No cricket side will ever beat the Botham / Hemmings / Miller trio England sent to NZ in the early 80's.

    It was New Age newspaper : "His claim of being an all-rounder is clearly more a reflection of his physique than abilities in Test cricket."

    haha!
