    I have read that people like Abbas and some of that generation did it with regularity and made it an art form.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    I've been impressed by our fine feathered friend.
    Aus really has great bowling depth. Batting, not so much.

    Yeah but so do many modern players. Amla, Kohli, Cook, Pietersen, Kallis and Sangakarra all play it beautifully.

    Commentator just called Johnson "a hard man". This confirms my theory that they live in a different universe to the rest of us.

    I've been watching cricket since the 70s and it isn't the leg glance that's become rare, it's the cut shot. Especially the late cut.

    GONE!!

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face
