Yeh he was really stupid to say what he did about the best player and team in the world.. but he knows that he was wrong now (hopefully)... King figures of 0 for 200 is a bit far fetched lol try 0 for 150King_Ponting said:But in all seriousness, he must feel like the biggest tool. For someone of his average at best skill level to suggest the things he did is extremely stupid and shows arrogance on his behalf. I would love to see him get carted all over the park and end up with figures of 0 for 200 next match
Lee got hammered for over 200 against india at the scg so its not too far fetched . But i know it isnt going to happen. But i would love to see it happenPiper said:Yeh he was really stupid to say what he did about the best player and team in the world.. but he knows that he was wrong now (hopefully)...

Maybe he honestly thought that McGrath was past it... tho he wouldnt be the best player in the world if he was... Or he said that to put more pressure on to McGrath knowing that he would want to go out there and prove him wrong and the Hoggard hoping that with the pressure he would be proved right...Shane Warne said:That's what it comes down to.

So even if you disagree with it, fine but it doesn't fall into the same catagory as what Hoggards done.
What Hoggard did just came across as so forced and smacked of desperation. It just heaped more pressure on him, given his already poor record v Aus.
Don't give-up on that yet.Slow Love™ said:I have some empathy for Hoggard, 'cause I feel a bit of a fool after my pre-match predictions that he would be the leading English wicket-taker in the series.
