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

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

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Jesse Ryder will make an ace commentator. Great to pair him up with Craig McMillan or Ian Smith.

    Better, of course. But only because Bracken's bad knee has affected his abilities to call

    I dream of Ed Cowan replacing Healy. More realistically I think Vettori would make a very good commentator.

    Cowan and Warner as a duo in the commentary box is a recipe for hilarity.
