    spark dying to get this discussion over before part 2 is released and it's revealed Warne wants spark appointed as head of communications
    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

    Too much of a loose cannon. Mark Taylor always communicates in the right thread
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    Not really, the jist of what he is saying is pretty clear, and you either agree or disagree. If you think solely cricket people (and successful ones at that) should be running the team AND the game, then you agree with him. Whether you actually fully agree with his names or have other names in mind, the contention is the same.

    I for one disagree with him, and not because he didn't communicate his point eloquently.

    quite like Kimber's opening response
    "Cricket is a simple game."

    Shane Warne, 2013.

    No, it really isn't. It's probably one of the most complicated games ever invented. It has an infinite amount of strategies involved in it. It combines chess, golf and psychological torture, is physically unnatural and is played on a surface that lives, breathes and changes.

    ****ing great article. So many great quotes from Kimber there.

    Spikey you'd be so happy with his put-down of Langer. Brilliant.

    Nah bollocks to that, Bencheh's not a fundie on that point like Warne is.

    I might add that Kimber's article ain't perfect either. He falls back on the tired 'team in transition' trope. By that logic, if they're not number 1, they're a team in transition. Bull****.

    That's only because Benchy has not played any tests. So his current policy is test cricketers + benchmark00 who has valid opinions.

    Think a team that lost Ponting and Hussey in a couple of months warrants being called a team in transition. If that happened and they were #1 they'd still be a team in transition, just one that is winning all the time.
