    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I think he's a prime example of one of Goughy's maxims in his ability to work with a board.

    I would have to think about my answer for International cricket but for club cricket in my experience captaining a team personal performances were the most important thing. We lost our first 8 games of the season while I did creative things with field placings and gave motivational speeches. Then I realised I was playing like crap. So I promoted myself to open and got us off to a good start for the rest of the season and we finished 9-9. In club cricket you can contribute most to the team performance by just playing well yourself *

    *provided you are average in the other facets of captaincy and aren't a boob of a captain.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    I don't know how is it in NZ, but here, in club cricket, getting XI players all on time on the field on sundays is the most important, difficult and exhausting thing for any captain. Performances comes second, au pair with 'locker room' (which often is a bench next to the rope) peace. A thankless job if there's one, in which you try to be competitive while pleasing everybody, but hindsight complaining about you will still be the primary conversation every evening.

    (And that's why I don't want to ever captain a cricket team)
    It's the pitch, stupid.

    What's Beanuad's quote?

    “Captaincy is ninety percent luck and ten percent skill. But don’t try it without that ten percent.”

    Sounds about right.
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
    - The Guardian's Andrew Anthony

    "Good captaincy is like pornography; it's difficult to define but you know it when you see it."


    Good stuff from Chappell, he seems genuinely ****ed off at the current state of captaincy in international cricket

    "When a captain signals from the opening delivery that he's trying to win the Test match, there's an urgency on the field and an expectation in the stands. Conversely, when a captain pushes fielders back, allowing the batsman a single to attack a tailender, there's no logic to the ploy. Once a captain basically stops trying to dismiss a batsman, the fans might as well adjourn to the bar, because the contest is then like Monty Python's dead parrot - it has ceased to be."

    Benchmark fuming as we speak.

    When I was interviewed for the Argus report in 2011, I said in part: "I don't think the current system allows you to captain Australia properly." "Why not," was the harrumphed response. "Because there are too many people to tell to get stuffed," I replied.

    This sums up Chappell. Holy **** he's a useless ****.

    "there's no logic to the ploy"

    Really Ian?
