    Is this the one where he goes after Warne for a second time?

    Good article. Could probably have done with a bit more editing. Good to see something written about a relatively unsung current player too.

    Good feature and yes, interesting timing.

    Samuels had an absolutely stellar year in 2012 and it'll be interesting to see if he can maintain that sort of form. I'm fully expecting him to be one of the Wisden Five along with Kallis (finally), Amla, Philander and hopefully one English player.

    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

    The article's plagued by several grammar errors; you really ought to get these edited before submitting them.

    CW needs more historical articles IMO.

    Apologies for the lack of editing. In a hurry to get it out I was being lousy. Will pay attention to detail next time.
