Thanks Agnostic.

One question -- Are Pappadums a special kind of spiced Poori? Sounds as though they might be, but the link does not mention them. For me curry is not curry without the, I can eat 6-7 with it, but that is just Occidental pigging-out. The only thing better is Nan bread.

And hey, is cookery not politics? A way for women to try to soothe their savage mates?:) :tralala:

No politics and no cookery please.:D

4321lynx

Why dont you start a cookery thread and we can exchange recipes? I am an amateur cook myself.

The Port thinks he is Materazzi and we are Zidane. Or that he is Cristiano Ronaldo and we are Rooney.

Coup de boule isn't cricket anyway.;)

Forgive him his trespasses...

Although the team is by name Norwegian, the players all descend from the countries of the Indian subcontinent, i.e. Pakistan, India or Sri Lanka.

The latest news from the Oval is that a boxing ring will be brought in for the championship bout between heavyweights Darrell "Wideboy" Hair and Inzamam "Hell" Huq, the Pakistani Potato Prince with a Point to Prove.

Test abandoned and awarded to England. That was unexpected. :confused:

The first Test won by the side that made less runs.:crazy:

Well this had to happen sooner or later. Let's be honest, this isn't the first time Pakistan has been accused of such dastardly deeds. :Bad:

The umpires better have real evidence of ball-tampering, otherwise I think they should be suspended and not allowed back until they've done a course in people skills. None of the Sky cameras have found any evidence of ball-tampering, so we only have their opinions, and umpires do get things wrong sometimes.

It is on all the TV channels right now and Shahid Afridi has made things worse by saying that everybody tampers with the ball including English fast bowlers who chew mint and shine one side of the ball. Mint, according to Afridi, makes the ball reverse swing at great pace. :wonder:

He wants ball tampering to be made legal.

:D

The Pakistanis dont want Darrell Hair to officiate in any match in which Pakistan plays and the ICC has said nothing doing.

More controversy.

Just not cricket.:Potstir:

Couldn't agree more mate. We discussed exactly the same points in the house yesterday while staring in disbelief at the bizarre events unfolding.

Unless Hair knows something we don't and there's evidence to back him up, he stuffed up badly and his colleague was too weak-spirited and weak-minded to question the decision.

Think Pakistan got the short end of the stick on this one and they'll probably get nailed by the old boy network. Am not holding my breath that Hair will necessarily "pay" the price over this incident.

The Khan wants to know how...

"The Pakistan team must be hurt that the ball-tampering allegation has reared its head once again. We had heard it termed as cheating when the two Ws, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis, were at the peak of their careers.

More recently it was termed as a finely honed art when it helped England regain the Ashes."

"Fundamentalist" umpires?

Some others want the ball to be displayed iin public so that people can decide whether it was tampered with or not.:devil:

Hair is a lonely man today...
