    Presumably because the seamers will be getting dropped, injured, rotated etc.

    The Lyon love-in and Swann hate on CW is laughable. Lyon has decent figures, but only because he keeps bowling at tailenders. Swann is miles ahead of him even if you exclude the batting/fielding, but the way many people on here go on you'd think it's neck and neck.

    Swann is definitely a far better spinner than Lyon...at this point. But Lyon is ahead of where Swann was at 25 years old.

    And the comparison with Narine is apt. Although the Windies tweaker has averaged 48 with the ball in his first 5 Tests so is still a way behind Lyon as a Test bowler.

    Narine has had a phenonemal start to his limited overs career. But it'll be interesting to see if he can adapt his style, which is certainly best suited to limited overs, to the toughest form of the game.

    Activists Picket Aussie Refugee Cricketer
    February 21, 2013
    By Stuart Shackleton

    Australian anti-refugee activists today staged a protest against the selection in the Victorian cricket side of a Pakistani player who came to the country seeking asylum.

    The small band of protestors gathered outside the Melbourne Cricket Ground on the last day of play between Queensland and Victoria, who had provided a State debut to Fawad Ahmed, 33, who succesfully sought asylum in Australia to escape persecution in Pakistan.

    Police moved on the protestors, who were allegedly making inflammatory chants, including one in which they yelled in unison: "Cricket's for us, Cricket's for us, wear whites, be white and that's alright. Cricket's for you, Cricket's for you, as long as your Aussie and not some brown dude."

    The officers also removed from one of the protestors a sign which read, "Shihad were a great band but Jihad is a bad plan."

    Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland said he was shocked by the behaviour of the protestors who were "appalling in their discriminatory actions, despite their ability to craft a catchy slogan".

    One Victorian fan who witnessed the protest described it as "really fully bad". "As far as I'm concerned it shouldn't matter where your'e from, if you can play cricket heaps good who cares if you are a different looking dark sort of fella."
    I searched the web and could not find this. A joke article? Anyway, the Shihad slogan made me lol whether it's real or not.

    Haven't heard a thing about that in any Aussie media tbh.

    If he'd got on a boat and threw away his passport he probably would have qualified by now. Which is both fair and compassionate I think.

    Mate he got a Michelle recently I think. For an Aussie spinner thats almost mythological. Get him in now!
