Steyn's average in UAE is now over 56... Typical Greentop Bully :ph34r:
OverratedS, you've been parroting this for a while now. Why don't you make a thread on it :p
Meanwhile; Kallis is God.
dear me, Philander is decent even on unhelpful tracks, proving his detractors wrong
Getting ridiculous. Can't see Philander's average going above 20 at all... Yeah he struggled against Australia but on flat tracks both here as well as in NZ he's proved quite dangerous. And of course in SA he averages 10 or something. Freak
Just taking the piss anyway, I'm annoyed he isn't doing well here which will invariably lead to idiotic comments like "He can only bowl at home" It's already started on Cricinfo obviously
on tracks that even Steyn can't do much, Philanderer is looking dangerous
goes to show that patient bowling (I'm assuming he is sticking to his guns and not giving much away per usual - not watching) will always reap rewards
It feels as though Philander has 4/50 judging by the praise he is getting here, not 2/50. I didn't watch much yesterday but today he is bowling well but not outstanding or anything.
2/50 isn't spectacular by his standards but he has looked dangerous and got movement regularly. Seam as well as swing. Just shows that he won't struggle on flat tracks like some people predicted
I think some of us expected 0/50 given his bowling style, it's a pleasant surprise to me at least
