    I prefer Fulton ahead of Guptill just cause he plays better pulls and hooks.

    Kallis needs just 1 wicket to become the ONLY player to have scored 500+ runs and taken 20+ wickets

    But hey, the shot looked amaaaazing!

    Side note - Indian supporters are the craziest in the world and quite possibly the most sanctimonious.

    And what's up with their tv ads all looking like they are americans - "nice chinos Kumar!" "Hey nice Dockers guy!"

    Albie to bowl now. Hope he gets a full 10 around 40-45 today, he is losing his bowling skills just like how Klusener lost it...

    Pakistanis are the worst IMO but Indians are not far off either. NO ONE is denying this.

    I think Morne actually bowled pretty well in the few recent ODIs and T20s he has played but has fallen out with selectors. Despite what the wickets column says, he has looked more likely than almost all the other SA bowlers to take wickets and according to some of the opposition players, is the one they fear most. Parnell lends variety with his left arm, while Morne gets the ball to bounce. Parnell looks great for the future and is potent when it swings but is erratic atm.

    Parnell might be a better bat but he is yet to bat at international level. The problem for SA is Albertus's bowling; far too extravagant of late. Yet he can swing a bat.

    When he's not on the attack McCullum looks so awkward and flawed. He really is completely lacking in any sound defensive technique. There's just something wrong about a batsman making an extra-cover drive for six look so much easier than a forward defensive.

    I would like to know why Indian cricket fans are complete and utter loons. When India lose do the women and childrens hotline go berzerk with calls about beatings?

    Thats cause he is not in touch. When he is in form, he can kill any attack. Last time I see him in superb touch was against Poms when he literally killed the attack.

    Cricket is a religion in India. Most Indian fans don't even know about cricket properly. They over hype the players and teams and then when they lose, they start crying foul. It is all crazy.

    No you're thinking of New Zealanders after the All Blacks lose.

    You have to come and live with 1,200,000,000 Indians to understand the frustration when the BEST selected 11 fails to perform well...

    Cricket is like another religion in India and people have the right to expect something from the players who earn billions through or via the game - directly or indirectly.

    The anger remains for couple of days and you win the next game, the mass would again start worshipping you like idols.
