    Got a little penisy too.

    No objections to bowlers giving the batsmen a little verbals but when you do it after being collared properly it does make you look a bit of an arsehole.

    - 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

    He's not in the ODI squad, so barring a string of injuries, he won't get another game on tour.

    IMO, he is international quality. He managed to take 24 wickets in 8 tests when he was young, stupid and trying to bowl at a million miles an hour. He is now a FAR superior bowler (and batsman) than he was then, but will probably never play in another test.

    He probably will play the Queenstown warm-up match, being the leading wicket-taker that isn't Arnel.

    13 guys got a run last year vs. Zimbabwe in a similar game, and he's outperformed C Martin both in stats and to the eye. Gillespie has chips to cash in from last summer but he's not beating domestix for pace like he was before those tests. Mills, don't think they'll go there.

    Just to have a look, but no I agree, it did back you up.
