    Geographically, the UAE is in Asia, but the subcontinental countries arguably aren't

    Pedantic semantics.
    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."

    There's a reason it's called the subcontinent.

    Richard is right for once.

    SUBcontinent. Part of continent.

    NOT a continent.

    Ind, Pak, Bang, Sri all part of Asia.

    They are over thousands of miles apart, and to club them would be like saying NZ and Australia have same conditions.

    The subcontinent is on a different tectonic plate to the rest of Asia. But then they're on the same plate as Australia, so lets just stop with the pedantry.

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

    Well one could actually argue that Tendulkar and Ponting aren't really from the same era - Tendulkar after all begun his plateau as a Test marvel a full 11 years earlier than Ponting did.

    But then, there's still Dravid I suppose.
