    He's moping, he's a gora, he's a moping gora. And after reading his other thread I don't know there is too much that is uncalled for in his case.

    And what has his being a 'gora' got to do with anything that you are saying?

    You wouldn't like it if he called you a 'darkie' would you?

    He'll have also bowled more overs than those 3 and I don't see really what you're getting at. If you have any statistic that relies on a small number of games it doesn't matter whether it's Tests or ODIs or Twenty20 it is prone to a lot of variation. Afridi has also been more expensive than those 3 anyway.

    Regardless I think he's bowled well, as have the others mentioned.

    Well it's no coincidence that there are no Africans, Asians or South Americans lining up to attack everything Indian simply because their team lost. If the glove fits...

    Look here Balram, or whatever your name is. Calling anyone 'gora' amounts to rascism and we do not appreciate that on CW. You have been cautioned enough.

    I strongly call upon the moderators to take action against this blatant rascism.

    I'm saying in 20-20, you can play well for 30 overs and that'll be enough for you to win a game, test cricket and to a lesser extent one day cricket is a better judge of real quality, anyone can fire for a short period, someone who can maintain a high standard of play over 300+ overs deserves to win.

    I think T20 world championship is being taken too seriously, T20 is new so its attracting people all around the world, but once they see more and more of it they are bound to get bored with the predictability of T20, because it just isn't proper cricket and it just ain't a test of cricketers skill and people are smart enough to realize that.
