    Well Cricinfo are now reporting the story about Shiv's son HERE , really hope the lad can deal with the attention he's getting and just go out and play his natural game, he's taller than his dad but apparently has the same "patient" style , his debut will be against one of the weaker sides but in truth Leewards have a decent attack, so it won't be easy for him.
    One Day cups- Champions trophy winners-T20 cup-29 test series without defeat record- and some think we're a "minnow".

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

    Tagenarine ... how would you pronounce that? "TA-geh-nah-ryne"?

    I thought Shiv lived in Florida these days? Where would Tag have been raised?

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    - 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
