Kohli's ticks an awful lot of boxes, tbh.
Dire ball - check
Team up against it - check
Rank shot execution - check
Subfielder who'd never held a catch in tests before - check
Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion
- As featured in The Independent.
"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
- Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

+ time's fickle card game ~ with you and i +
get ready for a broken ****in' arm
Yuvraj's charge down the wicket premeditated too, fiddle around on a turning/bouncy track was worse than Ashwin's for mine.
At least the intention from Ashwin was right from the start.
Yuvraj's a bit run-of-the-mill for this stable.
Presumably you're going to wait for the end of this series before closing nominations?
Would seem a sensible idea.
Might leave this up for a while, tbh, hell of a lot of Test cricket being played for the next while.
Ashwin right to attack, and despite the plaudits, primarily a bowler. Doesn't belong here IMHO.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Jono's Boyfriend did it at a bad time but so did Bell. I think as far as match situation goes they're even. To the day I'm still blown away by a guy charging down the track first ball when his team were staring down the barrel of a huge first innings deficit, while I think JB had every right to attack the full toss. Have seen Stuart McGill take a ton of wickets off ful tosses, so it's not a first by any stretch.
