    Never saw either but I don't doubt that, I just expected them to give it to Morgan anyway (and so did cricino tbh). Should have been Jimmeh anyway, sexy manbeast

    Hmm. When conditions heavily favour the bowlers I'm tempted to give MOTM to the only batsman who dominated the opposition attack. Completely changed the game did Colly.

    Yeah I think Colly probably deserved it if you look at it objectively, but since when did I ever do that?

    I reckon Sri Lanka would be near unbeatable at the current Centurion pitch, probably same with India. At Joburg though, I'm backing us to take them down.

    Sri Lanka were badly over hyped by some members here, as soon as the pitch takes some of the edge off their spinners and you get an early wicket or two they come right down to earth. (Still a great lineup but a few members were saying they'd take it out easy and beat Eng and NZ easy).

    So if NZ beat SL this group will come down to the wire.

    SA vs. Eng and NZ vs. Eng would become quarter finals.

    You are acquainted (sic) with Mills is ODIs right? The guy can win us matches.

    Tuffey a few years back around 03 was pretty darn nasty in ODIs too.

    Franklin is the weak link, his economy rates can get a little high.

    Franklin just got a 5fer on what seems like a pretty flat pitch, he's finally got his bowling form back on. Plus whenever he plays with Bond he always does well, he only gets taken apart when he leads our attack. Very good at probing the opposition when they find runs hard to get.

    Plus hes the 5th bowling option and Franklin as your 5th option in ODI cricket is pretty ****ing mint.

    To be fair, Franklin has always been awesome at any form of domestic cricket, but has unfortnately never been able to make the step up to international cricket.

    Hope he can turn it around for us, but I wouldn't be expecting too much from him.

    Never this good.

    Franklin List A year by year
    99 = 15 @ 7.50
    00-01 = 113 @ 14.25
    01-02 = 85 @ 14.17
    02-03 = 67 @ 33.50 (5 NO)
    03-04 = 210 @ 42 (4 NO)
    04 = 9 @ 4.5
    04-05 = 290 @ 32.22
    05-06 = 245 @ 16.33 (4 NO)
    06 = 2-9 @ 41.80 (4 NO)
    06-07 = 287 @ 28.7 (9 NO)
    08-09 = 306 @ 51 (1 NO)
    09 = 447 @ 40.63 (1 NO)

    Since his injury 6 50s in 19 innings with only 2 NO, 753 runs and a great average. Prior to that.... 8-9 years of 5 50s and 1530 runs. In one year he has scored a third of his List A runs. 103 innings made 1530 and 19 made 753. Really really need to reassess James Franklin as a batsman.

    Bowling less spectacular but averaging in England 13 @ 28.84 isn't that bad. Yet he wasn't bowling full strength the whole way through it either.

    Add to that the 1769 FC runs @ 55.28 he has put on the board in this last year including 6 centuries and 8 half centuries. The rest of his FC career only saw 3 centuries and 14 50s.
    38 innings - 6 100s (15.7%) 8 50s (21.1%) 14 50+ (36.8%)
    vs.
    131 innings - 3 100s (2.3%) 14 50s (10.7%) 17 50+ (13.0%)

    Oram has overall...
    136 innings - 8 100s (5.9%) 18 50s (13.2%) 26 50+ (19.1%)
    3992 @ 33.83
    Franklin has overall...
    169 innings - 9 100s (5.3%) 22 50s (13%) 31 50+ (18.3%)
    4875 @ 33.85

    One is improving with the bat and started genuinely as a bowler, the other is stagnating with the bat. I know who I want in both forms of the game.
