    Well they didn't bowl him at first change this game so it's probably a step in the right direction to realising he's in fact not a bowling allrounder and instead one of the best batsmen.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    Qualification by birth or residence usually goes out of the window once you play for one of the big boys, doesn't it? I expect it'll be 2015 before he's not classed as an overseas player regardless.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Ahh true, hadn't thought of that. I have no idea what his passport status is.

    Warks 89/7 now. Absolute shellacking.

    Interesting chase looming at TB. Backing my local boy Gurney to get the job done.

    I'm not talking about playing as a local. I'm just saying from next year the only way Copeland will be able to get past home office and get a county deal even as an overseas player is if he's got a British passport (Or possibly a passport from any EU country? I guess that's how Henriques got past HO the other year). He'd still have to play as an overseas player if he wants to remain playing in Australia. (Joe Burns will be doing that later this summer. He gets past home office via his parents, but is playing as an overseas player)

    Is the Champion's Curse just not winning the title again? Bit of a half-hearted curse if so
