    Yeah AA may be expensive but he does take wickets sometimes as his ODI record shows. Yuvraj is a perfectly useful bowler in the middle overs of ODI's but bowling him at the death is madness. It almost cost India an ODI against England. You would have thought they would have learnt from that but his over against New Zealand may end up costing India a semi-final spot.

    This needs to be broadened into a general question and not just limited to the dross on display at the T20 atm.
    Broad gets the nod based on last night but I'd still like to face a Symonds or Clarke.
    In the complete field of general bowling dross, have to say Harmy - you'd get them in wides.

    Well, first get Freddy to say something to the batsman, than have Broad bowl

    From the poll, obviously Yuvi. If Yuvi could face himself at the death he'd probably get a 54 (9) rather than just a boring 12 ball half-century.

    I expect it's a lot easier to hit the ball for six when you know exactly what's coming, and your bowling prowess is limited to that of Yuvraj.

    Was amazed watching Broad get belted yesterday, because it wasn't a bad over at all. It was clearly a situation of "license to slog" paying off.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    You are right it wasn't. In fact, I was amazed at how some people here were castigating Broad for bowlingsuch..you know what.

    Its just one of those things. He pitched a good length and got hit, he pitched up further and got hit. He bowled a full toss and got hit and he bowled one slightly short and got hit.

    He also pitched between leg stump to outside off and all go hit.

    IfI have to find a fault I would have said he didn't try a bouncer that followed Yuvraj. I know there is the risk of beingcalled wide but itshould have been tried for Yuvraj in that mental frame would have not let it go without the possibilty of getting a touch.
