You could travel to every country in the world, you're still naive if you think sportsmen say publicly what they're really thinking.Yes, you're right. I am naive, but then travelling to 30 countries will do that to you.
I don't know what to say.Agree with someone else here who said you sound eerily familiar...
Forgive me, but I can't help sensing a patronising tone in that post.Just because you don't agree with him, and he has very parochial viewpoints, doesn't mean that he doesn't have the right to post here.
Please explain how my views are "parochial"? (Yes I know the meaning of the word, but I can't see how you could come to that conclusion after a matter of a few posts on cricket).
Bare in mind only Australian forumites have argued against my point. That pretty much says it all and proves my point does it not? (That Australian sportsmen/women and fans, in general, don't find "****iness" to be ****y- not you or anyone in particular, but just the general feeling I get when watching interviews).
Dunno about that comparison.One word:
I don't think anyone genuinely viewed Ganga as a long term player for the West Indies outside of Trinidad and Trinidad whereas Bell was scouted in his early 20's as a long-term England player in both formats of the game (this was before the invention of T-20).
The fact both get starts and piss it away is very similar, but Bell seems in complete control before he gets out and the times I've seen Daren Ganga, he's looked pretty uneasy.
Bell should have AT LEAST 4 more centuries to his name (nearer 6-8). That would be a century under every 7 innings and people would say what a ratio that is.
