It's like the guy who did a thesis on how the Aussie accent evolved.
Try to say something with your face in this position:
First, squint your eyes tight because the sun's so strong. Then clenc your teeth together, so the sand and flies don't get in your mouth. Then just barely open your lips. Now try to say anything! You now have an Aussie accent!

Somehow Indians love the Aussie accent.
We learn to speak like the Brits but prefer the Aussie way or 'Strine' as I am told its called.

They have the stamina which other races dont seem to have.
Even in track events, the fastest men are inevitably blacks like Carl Lewis, Linford Christie and others.
As for this being a 'touchy' subject, there is nothing derogatory about my observations. I envy them their strength and stamina, that's all.

"He isn't the greatest outswing bowler, or inswing bowler, or bouncer bowler, but late in the day he'll still be running in full pelt when everybody else has their tongues hanging down and arms akimbo."
And Steve Waugh is on record as saying that he wished he had Walsh's body for at least a day.
