    After Season 8 of the Dev League has completed and possibly after some charity games too.
    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."

    That is nice to hear. However I will not be taking my selection as a 'given'. I just hope I can continue with the impressive form I have had this season. I have had worse seasons and done well in the test matches, if I can continue that in the South African series I hope to improve my sub-standard test record.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Just hope I can make the playing XI for a change and not always be the constant drinks man. I know the guys love the drinks I give them, but I've taken 80 wickets at 20 this year too, my skills can be utilised in a better way.

    It means Neil doesn't think you'll be in the Test side for a while.

    when can we expect a schedule, and seeing as though its a home series do players get to represent their dev league inbetween tests?
