On reflection, perhaps it'll be WI against Pak. for the final. :(

Trees? It would certainly be interesting. :confused:

Belrick,
The Ozzies have put him under a microscope and say that he doesnt chuck. He has a wrist which is deformed since birth and can turn 180 degrees. Watch his action closely. He doesnt straighten his arm the way other 'chuckers' do or did. He is just a freak bowler.

That is not a very good performance by Oz so far. What are the odds of a Warny 10-fer? :)

"The psychological war of words ahead of Thursday's first Test at Sabina Park cranked up a gear yesterday when Brian Lara told reporters that he feels he is a better player than when he broke Sir Garry Sobers's world-record score of 365 not out in Antigua a decade ago.

"I am mentally stronger, far more mature and less of a flash in the pan, which is what some people thought then," he warned. And Lara's Test form over the last 12 months v he has scored 1595 runs at an average of 69.35 v backs up his boast. "I am looking forward to surpassing what I did ten years ago - not perhaps in terms of runs, but in terms of worth.

"I think Hayden's 380 has been tremendous for me," Lara continued. "I was woken up at three o'clock in the morning and told the news, and then I lay in bed thinking. I think this may have given me the impetus to go on and achieve even greater things. By this I don't necessarily mean breaking records,but by leaving a greater impact on the game than just one or two innings.""

And Australia think they've got problems!?!?! Gawd help us. Our bowlers wil probably struggle as it is, without Brian hammering threbles against us! ;)

Murili's action is about as legitimate as indian bookies and Shoab Chucktars.

Murili is a cheat but with the power and influence of asian cricket these days hes forced to be tolerated. Still brings cricket into disrepute, just talk to retired cricketeers for one.

His action is a chuck wether you say he cant bowl because of deformity is no excuse. (bet ya $$ if they offered a free op to fix it hed run away screaming)

That is somewhat unfair. Such an op would probably bring a premature end to his career, so naturally he would reject it. Who wouldn't?

Belrick,
Steve Waugh seems to think different.

zxb,
Oz have proved why they are the world champs. Must be something to do with the great outdoors which makes all their cricketers become like Mick Dundee.:D

The Australian Cricket Board stood down any umpire who would no-ball him. Thats why he doesn't chuck over here. No umpire will call it. I can't believe he is allowed to play like that.

Yes, and Warny once again explains why he is the best spinner around. :D

About Mura. I think he is a legal bowler. It's is just is bowling action is so unorthodox it unnerves some people, which is understandable. Whatever the truth, the facts stand as they are. Mura has 496 Test wickets, and could break the record. His action is regarded as legal by the ICC, and he will carry on playing internationally until he retires like with most other bowlers in the world. Nothing is liable to change that.

India wins first ODI against Pak. Great game. Actually, the Pakistanis deserved to win.

Geat game? 'Twas a classic. To come so close to after chasing such a huge score. It's almost a shame there has to be a loser. :(

BTW, Kallis is 56no. Maybe he can get a 5th consecutive century. :D

Good show? Well, tolerable, but at least 60 extra's helped a bit. Still, against Edwards pace and hostility, I'd accept 339 as a decent score. :)

Kalis has made his Ton. I love him. :D :):D

Well in the next few years, hopefully we'll see some more classic contests:)
It's becoming an "interesting world" isn't it?
And we live in it:cool:
