    Which ones? 16 wickets have fallen so far, and about 12 of them have been stupid muppet batsmen.

    I know what you mean but I'm thinking of the public who pay the money, rather than the bowlers. I mean, even Dally looks dangerous on this 'un.

    Sort of agree though, limited overs cricket is all about batting tbh, that's why it's such an e format and why I and most of our boring English mob dislike it.

    I realise I'm doing an about turn but it is what it is LOC, and dodgy wickets don't help the punter, who at the end of the day is all that matters.

    I meant English - it's a standard thing. The bowling usually gets the blame but the batting loses more matches even tho it's supposedly strong.

    I don't know. I go to see the bowlers up******* stumps as much as I go to see batsman hitting fours. I don't find it very boring.

    Yea, well India aren't exactly putting on a great exhibition of batting. Dumbass Dhoni!

    Fair dos, and it's good to see the batters struggle and the bowlers have their 15 minutes.

    Generally though I'd say the Jaipurians tonight would've been up for some swashbuckling action.

    Yea, I agree with you. I'm just saying its not necessarily bad, for the sport and especially for Indian bowlers, if they get a chance or two to have their averages below 40.

    Big rap for Dairylicious, 2/5 off 4. Cricket is a funny game, Harmison averages 17 for the match, Mahmood who bowled pretty well goes wicketless.

    Fireworks and shots of the Pink State we're the real winners tonight.



    Nah, well played Indiah! We played the conditions poorly early doors and should've saved up for a late onslaught, not to say Munny and the lads didn't bowl well they did. Munny impresses me every time I see him, shame Shreeo didn't get a game I like him too.
