    It's true, plus when he's trying to bat properly (defensively) and manages to get to this sort of score (about 30* off 45 balls) he then doesn't seem to know how to safely accelerate, and instead gets out. Like others have said, would be much more comfortable if he'd just attack from the start. Let Ryder be the proper batsman.

    I thought the idea of religion in it's purest sense was peace, love, unity and understanding?

    What sort of followers praise their religion and god one day, then curse and burn it the next?

    Indians don't regularly throw stones on the houses of players like Pakistanis. Indians do too but less than Pakistanis. No Indian cricketer has come out in the open like Wasim Akram to criticise his own country's fans. I do believe the Pakistani fan is worse. Hell no one comes to watch tests in Pakistan. It is subjective though and I don't have a problem if some one thinks they are equally worse.

    Figure it will be a lot worse in a country who consider cricket their 'religion', and after loses burn effigies of their 'gods'.

    Ummmm... back to the cricket. NZ really need to pick up the pace and not allow Kallis and Morkel to bowl so cheaply. Last five overs 11/1

    He didn't mean religion in the purest sense. He meant as in a gathering of fanatical followers who base their entire sense of self worth around their chosen following.

    Which is why I said our guys do it too. Just not that often. It is subjective though.

    How many balls have we hit straight to fielders? This is so frustrating to watch.
