    No, you haven't. But thanks for the obvious troll post. I fully expected someone to come up with this. You might want to look beyond your prejudice and see the CSA corporate weasel speak for what it is. A whole lot of words that satisfies the need for an apparently measured response, but does absolutely nothing to clarify the situation.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    The issue is that the BCCI genuinely wanted a home series to be arranged around these two tours of RSA and NZ and it looks like CSA did not even come talk to them. As I said, there is fault at both sides. CSA never went to BCCI to OK the itinery and things just seem to have spiralled from there, given the obvious issues BCCI seem to have with Lorgat at the helm.

    If you don't think the 'lack of consultation' had anything to do with what the bcci have been saying/leaking about lorgat, I have a bridge to sell you. SA have everything to lose here financially. They're clearly not taking an overtly strong stand against the bcci; lorgat and CSA have been very conciliatory in their words. So if their words are a facade, why else wouldn't they do everything they can to work with the bcci to finalize the details of the tour? Joburg has already gone ahead with selling tickets despite the preponement of the NZ tour (aka a giant screw you from the bcci to CSA). Playing India brings home the bacon to CSA . Playing SA brings chump change to the bcci

    Yep that probably does deserve it's own thread... congrats Afghanistan. I think everyone will be happy to see them make it.

    Captain fittingly smashing the runs in Afghan style.

    Sri Lanka Board XI v Sri Lanka Cricket Development XI at Colombo (PSS), Oct 8-11, 2013 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    I think it's either stumps or almost stumps now, this series was organised by the SL board to make up for the Zim tests that got cancelled, looks like Sanga and Kaushal Silva had a day out while Eranga (as I thought) was the only decent bowler. I'll be interested to see how Thirramanne goes with the bat as the only international batsman in the development squad. Also hoping PJ and Matthews go on to score fairly big tomorrow

    According to Cricinfo Lahiru Gamage is Right-arm slow-medium. Does that mean slower than medium?

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    sounds like me tbh.

    This epitomises what Vaas was complaining about when he called SL fast bowlers "soft" I guess.

    Kaushal Silva apparently averaging about 80 in FC cricket in the last few months which includes some 'A' tours, he probably ought to get the nod to play in the UAE

    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
