    That and when he is dire he's incredibly dire. It's almost worse than playing with a bowler down when Johnson is not on song.

    I think that the real criticism of him mostly centres around the frustration of having a bowler who on one day can look like one of the best of all time and on the next look worse than a park cricketer.

    Abysmal spelling

    How can people attend modern schooling for 10+ years in a rich western country and yet not even be able to spell basic words, including the name of their own street ffs??????? This society is in massive decline

    Dropping a guy (Bresnan) for the next tour on fitness grounds then playing him in the last match before that tour starts. He promptly takes 4 wickets. If he isn't fit for NZ why play him in India?

    AWTA strongly.

    In Year 12 Advanced English we were having spelling tests, on not particularly difficult words. Pathetic TSTL. (I got 100% on them all, obvs)

    I spell fine, but it's not like it's crucial to be perfect at it in the real world. At work I write about a hundred emails a day, prepare several contracts, several letters and not once is it crucial to know the correct spelling off by heart all the time. The world has spell check ffs.
