    There were points in the 09 Ashes where I thought he would never get out, ever again. At one point after that it looked he wouldn't kick on, and if I put my once a year objective hat on, it's good to see that he has done. Good to watch as well.

    I've not been able to watch enough cricket in 2012 to honestly say if he's the best but its hard to think of many you'd definitely pick ahead of him.

    There's a HUGE difference between being a dominant player at home as an Australian, as opposed to being a dominant player at home as an Indian.


    The roads produced in India are a disgrace.

    Yes. Playing spin well is clearly only done by FTB's. That's why batsmen outside of the SC struggle against it so much....

    Great article on Clarkey from an Australian cricekt fan p.o.v. Basically apologising for media and fans who hated him cos he was bangin' hot chicks and wearing good suits.

    Bowled over by Pup's change, and it demands an apology

    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

    Nah it really pretty much touched upon the reason people hated him. It wasn't a serious cricket analysis, it was written pretty much with the respect those that hated him for doing Bonds ads in his jocks deserved.
