    I have a feeling he'll sign up for Raj Royals next year

    Thought he showed as much class in that moment as any human could after the week he's had. That was quality.

    He's also plainly shown he's ready, in terms of dealing with the media off-field, to step up once Ponting retires.

    Yeah, has been very impressive with this whole ordeal, especially after yesterday's play.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Oh, I'm not denying that it was classy and considerate - I just don't think that she really deserves it, that's all.

    I might be missing something, but what's she done wrong since being with Clarke?

    True, he hasn't proven himself in the format with a potentially monstrous price tag, but he is marketable and the two new franchises next year will be looking for someone like that to put a face to a team - the same way the icon players worked in IPL1.

    IPL clubs don't care so much about marketable anymore. They did at first but now they realise that having all the big faces but losing all the games = not fun and not profitable.

    DaRick, I've deleted your post as you're basically slandering Bingle based on nothing but rumours where there is most certainly doubts about their validity. It's the second time (iirc) you've gone down this path with this particular subject, so I'd suggest that if you can't comment on it without treading into what is unwanted territory from a CW perspective, that you dont' comment at all.

    I suppose an excellent example of that was how Rajasthan was able to turn a profit after IPL1 with no real glamour signings outside of Shane Warne.

    Just when you think you couldn't possibly hate the Herald Sun any more than you already do...

    For ****'s sake.

    Willing to bet that Clarke's first reaction upon seeing that ran something like that, too.

    Indeed. Realise it's the Herald Sun, but that's really appalling, especailly considering how graceful he was after his innings towards her.
