marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Zimbabwe should be banned from World cricket and the "Rebels" should form a Break away and play in Dubai
these zimbabwe bowlers need to learn to pitch the ball up. how can you continously bowl short and wide to jayasuriya?!
Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!
so?its not as though hes been tested as an opener by the quality of bowling in zimbabwe. i think the way he played in the ODI series was a clear indication that his technique is not quite upto the mark as an opener. you dont expose what is potentially you're best player by sending him up front now do you?Originally Posted by marc71178
They call this Test cricket? The ICC is ridiculous to let this go on.
Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
This coming from a guy who says that Gayle plays with an awful technique.Originally Posted by tooextracool
Taylor had the second highest average of the Zimbabwean batsmen, and the second highest score. I think it's safe to say his technique, for the whole five games he played, is a lot better than the rest of them, with the possible exception of Taibu. They need someone at the top and in the middle who can last a decent time, and in the middle they have Taibu and at the top they have Taylor. I'm honestly shocked at your perspective, but I guess it's each to their own.
EDIT:I agree! Say, how many days do you think Sri Lanka will bat for? What kind of score would we be looking at? Any guesses?Originally Posted by Mr Mxyzptlk
1) i was loking at it from zimbabwes perspective.....now zimbabwe wouldnt mind a gayle in their side now would they?Originally Posted by Loony BoB
2)gayles technique is worse(but he does make that gap up with his extremely good eye and power stroke play)
3)gayle has the worst temperament that you'll ever see.
those are reasons why for me gayle shouldnt be in the WI test side.
taylor does not have the best technique in their side but hes potentially their best player. you dont throw a player like that upfront when the pitch is doing a bit. generally good players bat at 3-4 and not upfront to shield themselves from the new ball.id rather they send someone whos not as good to open....because you're probably going to get the same amount of runs from taylor opening the batting as well.Originally Posted by Loony BoB
Well Tatenda's brought himself on and got rid of Jayasuriya, and Matsikenyeri's accounted for Sangakkara.
Atapattu is on 140*, and I thoroughly expect him to go on to another double - I reckon we'll have a declaration just before the end of Day 3 when Marvan makes his treble century, then Zimbabwe will fall over on Day 4.
Expect a feature article on Zimbabwe soon.

As a side note, a few low scores in this series for TTS wouldn't go amiss.
