    bilaterals would be the most common. It is suprising though

    Slightly relatedly, I've just had a quick trawl to try finding the most wickets taken by a bowler in a bilateral 5-ODI series.

Darren Gough also has 13, whilst Andre Adams has 14 from 4 ODIs in a 7 game series and Javagal Srinath 18 from 7 as an all-time best.

    I have 13 from 4 ODIs in this series thus far... but I can't believe that this is so close to a record... maybe there are just so few bilaterals played?
    For experience. The experienced bats got chances and did nothing.


    Nah don't think it's about the amount of bilaterals. Just less chance to get a lot of wickets considering the fact that usually more than 5 bowlers are used and a bowler only has 10 overs. All that stuff.

    But surely India does not want to get whitewashed in the name of experience. They'd still be playing their best XI to salvage some pride.

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."

    You already took 17 from 5 when Pakistan came here a couple of years ago. Work to do on Sunday, clearly.

    No. Played the best XIs available for the important first 3 games and only Sehwag and Gambhir made runs. What reason is there to believe that the young guys won't do better than the crap Ganguly, Yuvraj and the like served up. Might actually get batsmen wanting to make runs to make an impression.

    Because Ganguly and Yuvraj are proven performers and the youngsters aren't? Fair enough to make a change or two, but to have Chawla batting in the middle order ahead of Ganguly or Yuvraj? That's just asking to be whitewashed. India has fixed this series, IMO.

    Mamesh included in James Nixon Inv XI

    Dan Smith has been asked to lead the James Nixon Invitational XI against India. The team will play a 4-day match against the tourists, starting on Tuesday. Cricket Web Black captain, Smith will be joined by five players with Cricket Web XI experience.

    Kyle Wright leads a strong bowling attack, and is likely the share the new ball with Nath Patrick or Nick Borcich. The main spin option in the team is Martyn Corrin, the CW Green allrounder. The greatest point of interest, however, will be the efforts of Thamba Mamesh to force his way back into the Test team.

    Good stuff. Expecting us to dominate.

    Nearly too tired to think properly. Will just give bowling orders. If any of the the other senior players want to throw some tactics in, be my guest.

    James Nixon Invitational XI
    DP Smith (c) (7)
    T Mamesh
    R Malone (6)
    NG Scott
    RGEWS Cribb (8)
    SE Fuller (4)
    A Lezama (wk)
    M Corrin (5)
    NA Borcich (1)
    KS Wright (2)
    NL Patrick (3)

    Only go to me or Cribb if it's very desperate. If one of the opening bowlers is getting some stick get Patto on quick smart.
