Just because I rate a batsman doesn't mean I think he should play at every given moment in time.I thought you rated him?
Naaah. Sounds pretty clearly SA to my ears, although it's not as strong as KP's. Imagine that's because English is his first langauge and KP's is Afrikans tho.Haha and what did SA get in return? Me..
He's got a very English accent for mine though, and doesn't sound put on like Pietersen's.. He'll do well and should have been playing for England long before scraps like Bopara were picked up..
Yeah it's clear where he's from, but he's got stacks of English in his accent.. Clearly way too much to have a hope of scoring any runs..Naaah. Sounds pretty clearly SA to my ears, although it's not as strong as KP's. Imagine that's because English is his first langauge and KP's is Afrikans tho.
So relieved that I don't have to put up with his drivel these days, unless I'm forced to listen to TalkSport in the back of a cab, with its pearls of cricketing wisdom from experts such as Jack Bannister and Ian Wright.Absolutely slaughtered by Jack Bannister on Talk Sport yesterday for having a technique totally unsuited to Test cricket.
Strange thing for Ponting to say, really. Replacing a bloke who hasn't made a score in 4 tests seems less desperation than common sense to me. Especially as the replacement is averaging nigh on 100 an innings for the season.
