Not quite a mountain. More of a hill. Well, a hill with a regiment of enemy troops dug in trying to kill you. And with mines and barbed wire. At night. In driving rain and a force 8 gale. Oh. :bawling:

SHOAIB WE NEED A HATRIK



Two definitely very good LBW decisions have given England a chance. Hopegully the only 'hatrick' he'll be getting is in the post-match footie game.

Pakistan, on the other hand, remained firmly rooted to the scene of their great triumph. Having wowed the crowds with their cricketing skills, they decided to warm down with a quiet game of football.

Except there was nothing remotely quiet about it. How can there be when you've got Inzamam-ul-Haq, the ball-hogging playmaker haring down the centre, as barrel-chested as Maradona and as untackleable as well? Or Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, as tricky and unpredictable on the left wing as he has been all series with the ball?

The Pakistan team plays its football like the rest of the country plays Kabbadi, an amalgam of wrestling and rugby that leaves most of the players intertwined and stumbling to the turf. "They are the worst footballers in the world," said their coach, Bob Woolmer, as he took a break from refereeing. "If we played cricket like we played our football, we'd be playing like the Peak Freans biscuit factory team."

It's strange that in terms of winning the series they didn't need Afridi after all, but if England had batted properly they would have won the first game and drawn both of the others. Any Englishman caught playing the sweep shot is to be sentenced to a wrestling match with Inzamam.

Some Kiwi fans seem to be very sore losers. I remember from months ago they were throwing bottles at Aussie fielders in another game. Now it's fruit too?:tralala: The most Brett Lee ever got thrown at him in England was a severed hand.:angel:

By more annoyed. 1 Wicket defeat to a mere A-team. Don't be put off by the face that the margin of defeat was tiny and we rested several vital players. Be depressed I say. :Potstir:

Gangas has been given one last chance because he has been India's most successful captain. Pity our selectors are not as pragmatic as the Australians.

Meanwhile...

Dravid is clear about the kind of team and men he seeks. "I want a good, tough Indian side."



If Chappell has his way, he will get it

Unprotected sex should be banned for England cricketers. . except in late January/early Feburary. . . .


England play cricket at home from May to mid-September and then typically tour from the middle of October through to the start of the new season. It leaves, he will note, a small window of birth opportunity from late September to mid-October. Granted this could, in some years, leave some logistical problems conception-wise, but if it means a full-strength side for every match abroad then a few pudding-club-class passion-flight fares in January, in order to lie back in the cause and think of England, would not be asking too much.

Either that or they should be allowed to get their wives along with them wherever they go--as we do in India.

I hope that means more than 'he blew his nose'. :Bad:

My guess is that Lee was rattled that he threw another bean-ball. It was big news in NZ. One of their coaches alluded he thought it was on purpose when Lee sent one down last year.

Lee doesn't come across as that type.

India is partying today because of this guy.

We wish he would go on and on and on.

The wholesome master--the only guy Viv Richards would pay to watch. :kowt:
