    I get where you're coming from, tbh. When people make jokes about Tendulkar, Indian cricket, or say things like what Rob did a couple pages back, deep down I do feel like calling them ****s and fiercely defending my country. (It's the same reason why English posters get so touchy when we mention their imports ftr) But I called you a knob because you decided to irrationally defend Dhawan by bringing up an equally dickish yet unrelated incident involving Watson, as if all the posters here were unfairly conspiring against him and India or something.
    No matter what I do, you do not have the right of being abusive or offensive towards me, if there's something wrong, you can criticize me, but you can't cross the line. Did I say something offensive to you? Did I abuse you? No rite? Then why do you have to overreact.
    Is this your homework Larry?

    Okay, now that we've had about 1000 infractions in this thread, could we please move on, discuss the cricket and most of all remember to actually listen when Spark lays down a warning? Cheers guys.

    Yet another match/series/year where Australia continue to dream of having a decent spin option in their side since Warne retired. Don't worry though, I am sure South Africa laughed a great deal at you after beating you in your own backyard last year. Go Lyon/Dohery/Agar! LMAO.

    It wouldn't have mattered if you had 5 Mcgraths or 5 Muralis bowling 50 overs in these pitches.

    I don't disagree completely, but I am quite concerned whether Dhawan's technique and temperament is good enough to be successful in South Africa.

    Jeesh, I just realised if you give up booze for over a month, and this place becomes infinitely worse, I'll try not to do that again.

    I think the best thing that can be said about this series is it's over.
    Do I contradict myself?

    I agree, but he deserves the chance to find out. If he bats the same in Tests in South Africa as he does ODIs in India then he'll be found out badly, but I think you do have to give highly successful batsmen the benefit of the doubt to change their approaches to suit. Furthermore, I don't think Vijay's technique will hold up in South Africa either.

    If Vijay is terribad in the 1st test, I hope Rahane is given a go. Or Pujara or Sharma will have to open as a stop gap solution.
