As ther West Indies found out after their great reign in the 80's, bowlers like McGrath don't grow on trees. When Warne and McGrath give it up we will really be back in the pack.

Bradman retired in 1948: "Never mind. There's another Bradman just around the corner." :D

If you want to know why Bangladesh is doing so well in the one dayers, then here is a quiz:

1/ Who coached Sri Lanka to that incredible World Cup victory in 1996?

2/ Name the current coach of Bangladesh.

I think you'll still be somewhat above the pack. you still have 4 men who average over 50 in tests. If you get Mike Hussey into the side, probably be 5. In fact I'm starting to wonder how Langer is still holding down a place in the side averaging as he does a mere 46. :D

Good old Gilly is now starting to walk when he has't edged anything. :):kowt::tralala:

Gilly is still King.

If anything, this only proves that the Bangas are cheats. If it had been someone like Vishy...

G R Vishwanath was the captain who recalled Bob Taylor when he was given out by the umpire. Vishy, who was at first slip, immediately realised that Bob's bat had brushed the pads, which had misled the umpire into giving him out caught behind. Like the true sportsman he is, Vishy walked up to the umpire and politely withdrew the appeal. The match was delicately poised then and the subsequent partnership between Ian Botham and Bob Taylor took England to a winning position. India lost the Test, but Vishy is remembered for that and loved all the more for it.



Gilly can hold his head high. Shame on the Bangas for not calling Gilly back to the crease. :cheers:

It is evidence that the Bangas are trying to play hard. :)

Match tied! After being 33/5 I would have been overjoyed. After being 149/5 and cruising quite nicely I am actually a bit disappointed. It should not have come to that. Still, it's a fair reflection on what has gone before. :angel::uh::devil:

Too many ODI's says Gilly. :)

I think he's right. I can't think of many occasions when 2 Natwest series have preceded a test series. :wonder:

Aus 168/6. Colly 4/34. Now if there is 1 thing I like it is a man who can convert anger against Al Qaeda into ozzie wickets. :cool:

Oh we're quite safe for Islamists. Whether we are safe from a walloping as a result of a comeback from Big Brett is quite another matter. :kowt:

Beware Graeme Smith. 311, 255 balls, 11 6's. Lovely jubbley. :cool:
