    I don't know about the phillipines but if you find malaysia very hot then I reckon you will find most places in the Sub-continent much hotter.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    @Goughy it's hotter than Malaysia but it's definitely not as humid.

    Judging by the national side's bowling depth, there have got to be 120 that need a quick.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Is Chennai less humid than Mumbai?

    I hear that Mumbai is as humid Karachi and I found Malaysia to be less humid than Karachi (not counting the 2 to 3 month cool dry period window)

    I know its touch in cheek.
    But I seriously doubt you'd even be close to making any of the Ranji sides tbh even if you did bowl seam up for Yorkshire u-19s some years ago.
    From what I've seen, India are definitely producing better pace bowlers than they were say ten years ago - they may still be inferior to the the top pace attacks in the world but its a relative thing.

    Are you trying to tell me that as a 37 yr old office worker with barely 1 working hamstring that I wouldn't cut the mustard?

    A bowler with a whole hamstring trying out for India? You're selected.
