'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

Don't think he's taken one since.59.3 83.5 kph, VVS has managed to get stumped after leaving a wide delivery, fancy that for a freakish dismissal, he had just ambled back after leaving the ball and the back foot was in the air for just an instant, just an instant, and that was enough for an alert Baugh to whip off the bails, Laxman looked surprised when West Indies appealed and even more so when the third umpire ruled him out, Chanders is mobbed by his team-mates, he is grinning broadly, 9th wicket in 133 Tests, he'll take it172/5
CK is a better championship batsman, better gloveman and less likely to be missing games through international commitment in the forceable future. There's a reason Somerset aren't telling him to piss off and giving Buttler a big expansive fancy new contract. Well, they might be doing the latter, but they're not doing the former.
Look, I love Jos to bits, and both think, and hope, he'll be England wicketkeeper for years to come, at least in the short forms. But at the moment, he just doesn't bring more to a county than Craig.

He had two big partnerships with Alviro Petersen in tough situations early in the season and top scored in most of Somerset's terrible low scores. He put on 120 with Trego and scored 80 when staring down an innings defeat against Middlesex. Oddly he was better in Championship cricket this season than he was in one-day cricket.
His wicket keeping has also improved massively, while Kieswetter has been very inconsistent, letting through 18 byes from Leech and Chawla yesterday when we were defending just 106.
God what the **** takes Cricinfo so long to write a report. Almost every time without fail Durham's game is the last to get a report for it despite often being involved in the most important match. It finished nearly 3 hours ago. BBC have reports up within an hour.
They prioritised Hildrith's return to form. And rightly so.
So safe to say The Oval is turning a bit?
Durham declare over 400 ahead, Onions takes the first wicket after 3 balls. Really want to see a result today - tomorrow's forecast looks hideous.
And you see it. On ya Durham
Yea surprised to come back online after they were 30odd-1 and see Sussex splattered again like that, doesn't usually happen twice in a match. Arshad now has 10 wickets at 6.80. Useful.
Honestly, what is going on, byes all over the place. 23 runs off 6 balls, turning all the momentum, sloppy as anything.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
