    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Flintoff has always batted well in the middle order and so has Pietersen, why remove them from the conditions in which they are most effective?

    One of those where you perhaps wonder if hawkeye is as infalliable as all that. It looked stone dead at full pace, but hawkeye had it going over by quite a bit.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Oh right, I only had the radio and they had doubts about it in real time, but don't know what view they had.

    Flintoff has batted at his best at 4 while Pietersen at 5. IMO once Tresco comes back the order would fit perfectly with Bell at 3, Freddie at 4 and KP at 5.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    I dont know about stone dead, but it was pretty obvious to me that it was too high. As such even Ian Bishop had doubts about that at full time.

    No Bell and Strauss would be the better option 'coz Pietersen and Flintoff are middle order batsman.

    Well it's mainly stopgap, it's a rarity having Fred play as a specialist bat.
