    I'm talking from personal experience. I am a bit slow, so that it takes a little less time for me to compute things which adds more doubt into my mind.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Cbuts - Thank for the great discovery. I am sure you have taken this loss very well and it was not a case of sour grapes at all.

    Anyways, Now we look forward to hear your views in 2011, hopefully you will still be around.

    Murali bashing is just annoying. I don't understand why people have to try and knock others because they're really good. It's something New Zealanders sadly do alot. Mainly the ones that ring radiosport after semi final losses. They aren't too kind to the black caps either.

    Think about it like this if Murali and Malinga were NZ with their corrosponding bpwling "actions" do you think they would have got passed school level cricket...

    but anyway Sri Lanka won there batting was great and the assortment of bowlers for Jaywardene to pick from was handy, Styris should have given the part timer one over 1sbefore trying to go over the infield and Oram should have stood his ground, just like M.Bouvcher did when C.Cairns c&b him in the VB serires a few years back, chris asked did you hit that, boucher just shook his head, replays told another story.

    Didn't see the game, but didn't I hear that Oram was satisfied enough about the catch to walk?

    Since they're both legal, then I don't see why not.

    You might find coaches trying to get them to bowl more orthodoxly, but we all know that in Murali's case, that is actually impossible to do.

    We need to recommend this guy to the Umpire's panel.
