    If you look at it purely from a statistics POV for the tournament, he's really not far off the mark.

    Ok, I will have a go at a side

    Watson
    Smith
    Ponting
    Guptill
    Collingwood
    Elliott
    Malik
    Vettori
    Broad
    Lee
    Parnell

    I was probably a bit harsh earlier on Ding Dong but more importance needs to be placed on how important their roles were. For example, Vettori, Elliott and Guptill were crucial in getting NZ in the finals, Watson and Ponting were destructive for Aus

    Patel has the most experience out of anyone as a 12th man.

    Probably just purely in the fielding-drinks carrying role.

    Is Patel even in the current top 100 one day cricketers?

    Seriously, I would prefer N. McCullum to him.
    NRL Tipping Champion 2014

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    good side toss between Ajmal/Hauritz and Aamir/ Broad rest looks good

    You & me both, Patel doesn't even stand-up at domestic level, let alone International level, where he's generally meat & drink for any decent batsman.

    I saw Patel and some of the Wellington cricket team doing a promotion at the wellington train station. Patel was obviously tired of people recognising him so he kept his back turned to me and offered me a free bottle of promotional water over his shoulder while fleetingly glancing at me.
    I thought about saying 'hey Jeetan' but could tell he wasn't in the mood for it. So I caught my train.

    He actually is a pretty accurate bowler. He just doesn't seem to bowl very intelligently or get much turn.
