    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    That said, Hamish > James. But it's a pretty darn close-run thing.

    ITBT, Turner > the lot of 'em.

    Jamee edits the opening post in June 2008, after it was made in September 2002 (not long after I turned 17, incidentally). ITSTL. Wonder what he did and why he did it.

    Not really. James probably does a better job of making the most of what he has, but Hamish is unquestionably the better player. That brief period of success at the start of his Test career including a hundred on debut against Australia is something I could never imagine James achieving, for example, and the same is probably true of his feats for Gloucestershire since he arrived there.

    He obviously wasn't great but I don't think it's particularly close between he and James.

    Indeed, AWTA. Move the post to CC FFS, you're a GM!

    Which thread would I put it in though? I don't think Hamish and James deserve their own thread in CC TBH.

    I'd put it in the Asia Cup thread ITBT

    TBF EWS, I feel sorry for you having your post in here. It doesn't deserve to not be attributed to your stats, and you can give your PBD a nice boost by moving it.

    I think you should transfer the whole TF to another forum, give everyone a post boost

    I'm sure there's a "Bracewell's fascination with the Marshall twins" thread out there somewhere, but a quick search on the Search Feature couldn't find it due to the option's current limited capabilities.

    Yeah, I always forget he played that game against Pakistan for no logical reason.
