    All I know is that before I'd ever heard anything about his batting I heard his self-proclaimed "x-factor"-ness.
    I can just imagine him employing the Maeby Funke water cooler talk trick.

    I watched his 50 the other day. He looked like a pinch hitter.

    He could be an amazing talent, what has he actually done? Isn't he in the Aus side based on one innings?

    20 players have been nominated for the second part of the auction. The first is Farveez Mahroof, then Jeevan Mendis, South Africa's Chris Morris, SL's Sachitra Senayake, Scott styris. Among fast bowlers it is Ben Cutting, Josh Hazlewood, Clint McKay. Among batsmen - Ben Rohrer, Henry Davids, Rilee Rossouw. Allrounders - Kevin O'Brien, Jacob Oram, West Indies fast bowler Jason Holder, Rory Kleinveldt, Ben Laughlin and Kane Richardson.
    can we dare to dream?
    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

    No. His produced some good performances in short form Cricket for a couple of years and is good in the field too. Made some useful runs while batting aggressively in Shield too. He's a good addition, but not worth a mill.

    Morris up to 600K already, wow.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Poor guppy, turned down the ipl cash last year to focus on his intl career and now the ipl clubs won't touch him despite the fact that he hit a match winning t20 century a month ago.
    Yeah AWTAx2. Been in ridiculous T20 form too.
    Feel for Guppy Prolly his dire ODI/Test run overshadowing his T20 awesomeness - can't think of any other reason tbh.

    Despite the fact NMac feels like an ordinary player all the time, perhaps because of his average record in ODIs/FC etc. He's actually been a bloody good performer in T20Is. He's actually the 5th ranked bowler in the world in T20s. 40 wickets @ 18, ER of 6.4 + he's an awesome fielder, and a useful lower order batsman. 100k is a good buy considering guys like Maxwell went for a million.

    Wow was not expecting Morris to be picked up for that much!! I like the dude, and reckon he has a big future in all three formats for South Africa, but damn.

    I know Dhoni is a HUGE fan of Albie Morkel, and Morris is quite similar, just better.
