    CW has been harsher to new posters in recent times as a whole imo, especially if they first get noticed when posting an opinion that is contrary to the majority.

He's a decent ODI performer in the same way Yuvraj and Gayle are: accurate and won't get collared that often because they bowl flat straight breaks that're hard to get away. The D'oh man is better, but not by that much.

    Tripping gaily through the gardens of Castle Bleedin' Obvious as I am, in tests batsmen can hang in for the inevitable bad ball because there isn't the imperative to score quickly.

    I'll hold my hand up and say I've only seen D'oherty bowl twice in FC games (the tests you refer to), but I didn't see anything to suggest he'd ever be more than a journeyman. His lack of side spin means he's going to be a bowler who deals in subtle variations, but didn't seem prepared to use enough air back in 2010/11.

    My inexpert opinion is he's loath to try other options because if he does he might lose what makes him a decent limited overs bowler.

    I've been wrong before, but really would be looking elsewhere.



    It's not that he doesn't bowl with any side spin, he just doesn't get the ball to catch on Australian wickets, so most balls just skid on, and then he has his slider which skids on really quick.

    In India, he can get the ball to hold it's line a little more regularly, which could cause some problems. On the other side, his main method of "dismissing" a batsman is LBW with the ball skidding on, which won't happen as easily on Indian wickets.

    Well it'd probably be ignorance but understandable. Arrogance would be assuming everyone knowing the in jokes.

    What gives me the cold shudders is the thought of Hussey the younger getting into the side to India. I thought the selectors were moving him off after dropping him from the odi team until I began hearing they might want him to tune up for the tests in the shield. Well I hope thats just gossip. Though good value as a hitter and handy spinner his technique unravels awfully at times. When he was caught behind of a Malinga outswinger walking towards mid on while the bat went the opposite way to mid off looked ugly. At 34, or whatever he is now, he's probably beyond learning new tricks.

    Look, in all honesty, my young bloke was batting in the nets this morning and his back foot trigger-moved to the leg side once, a la D Hussey. I chased him around the park with a stump til he got the message not to do it. How can blokes get to the top level with a technique like that? It's ****ing criminal.

    Anyway, when is the touring party announced?

    sounds like bad parenting
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    What? Bad parenting would be allowing this appalling footwork to fester.
