    Yeah, not out. Still a **** shot though. How far it was outside off just shows how much better a shot bell's actually good at would've been
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    One thing McCullum will defo be looking to improve during his captaincy are his reviews. There were some iffy ones in SA as well iirc.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    He can bowl too - but they didn't bowl him SA and may not see him as an option. That may hold him back

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

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Commies talking as if it's one of Root or Compton for the test side. Not both?

    And unlike his batting - he has a classically good action. You will really like it when you see him bowl. He is very average but easily as good as Nathan Astle and McMillan etc.

    I hate to think what Gayle or Warner (or McCullum for that matter) would do to Franklin if he bowled 125ks, gun barrel straight stuff to them

    I think he is very fortunate that the English openers havent really needed to take any unnecessary risks as there were lots of balls just dying to be belted
