    50 in the grand manner for Ding Dong. Played wee man.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - 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

    Glorious way to go to fifty. Bell looks as if he can accelerate pretty much any time he decides.

    Part of it, yeah.

    But a lot of the grounds in New Zealand - the ones that are actually cricket grounds anyway - are so beautiful, there are lots of day games, the crowds always seem into it which helps the atmosphere and with New Zealand Cricket there's still an over-riding sense of caring about home ODIs that you don't always quite get in other countries. Best lineup (or what the selectors think the best lineup is) is always selected and the games there always seem to have some sort of competitive edge. It just seems like it'd be a great day out honestly.

    All in all it just reminds me of what ODIs were like to me when I first started getting into cricket when I watch games from New Zealand on telly. I was looking forward today as much as I'd usually look forward to a Test, and I've been really enjoying it.

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

    Which is what he has that Trott doesn't. I like Trott, but I just don't see what he can do to dictate accurate bowling and accelerate his inning. He's usually fine playing the quicks up top if there are a few bad balls, and milking the spinners in the middle, but he has no release shot.

    Lol.

    Just short for his height then.

    Incidentally have you caught any of Mohammad Irfan in action in the SA/Pak test? I think his alleged 7' 1" is overstated myself.

    NMac is bowling an absolute treat here.

    Created two false shots already and unlucky not to have a wicket.

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

    Am on record guesstimating him at 6'9"-6'10". He's crickets Andre the Giant (Andre wasn't even 7 foot tbh).
