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 love Holding and Mark Waugh too. But since you are getting a middle order bat to open - exactly like Furball, I detest your team already.

Vimes tells it how it is:
I'm with everyone else - ATG teams must have specialists for each role, and Waugh wasn't a specialist Test opener.
“I'm writing a book on magic”, I explain, and I'm asked, “Real magic?” By real magic people mean miracles, thaumaturgical acts, and supernatural powers. “No”, I answer: “Conjuring tricks, not real magic”. Real magic, in other words, refers to the magic that is not real, while the magic that is real, that can actually be done, is not real magic.”

listen smali****, everyone loves mark waugh. languid strokemaker with all the time in the world. just one of those guys who has it all and everyone likes. would never make a test opener though, he loved to play at everything - which got him in trouble at times even at 4. Also had a problem with scoring big hundreds, which is what you love your openers to do, either as a partnership go big, or at least for one to bat a majority of the innings. i also highly doubt whether he would ever want to be a test opener. surely the kind of cool cat who wants to (and with his talent you let him) bat in the easier periods and cash in on the nuggets getting you off to a solid start.
dravid you can get away with as an opener, junior you cant.
