1. Since his 2001 ashes revival there has been next to no fallow periods. Plus i think Langer will be ok once fit again since even through all his injuries he still has looked good in the crease.Richard said:It may do, it may not. It's not like Langer's not had fallow periods before now.
He has - on yet more very flat pitches against, very often, nothing bowling.
No - you'd have to be pretty mad to miss the absurd number of let-offs Ponting had against South Africa, though.
WOW, SCORING RUNS AGAINST ZIMBABWE IN 2003!!!!!!! You've got to have some nerve to credit that as worthy Test-cricket.
Yes, Gilchrist did play the odd decent innings in 2003\04, and played plenty at home and in NZ in 2004\05, but he also had failure aplenty before that.
Incidentally - the Darwin 2004 pitch certainly wasn't a shocker if you're a seam-bowler, it was a beauty.
2. Missed the MCG, SGG & Cape town test i presume..
3. Ok i'd admit he had his luck in SA but when you are in the form he has been in since coming back from the ashes luck tends to go your way. But forget about that you someone have come to the conclusion that Ponting has just been ``merely reasonable since 2003 , now for the life of me i dont know how you could say such crap.
I know he had a poor 2004 by the standards he has set since the 2001 ashes (after all he has been the best batsman in the world since then) But for christ sake the man for in 16 test since the ashes has been the best of his career. What the hell is wrong with you...
4. So what if its ZIM, you said he has done nothing of real note since 2002/03 so that the ZIM knock plus all the others shows how WRONG you were. Plus what failures are you talking about?
Yea i know the darwn pitch was a seam bowlers dream thats why i said it was a shocker.
