Well, I've looked at the list now, and I'm not totally convinced that Boucher is the best man for the keepers slot. Good lower order batter of course, but from what I saw last year, his keeping leaves a fair amount to be desired. Rest of the squads seem fair though. :)

Nice little team. Couple of small pointers, why is Dravid and not Fleming captain? And why Lance Klusener for the alrounder? Batting average of 33 and bowling over 37 is not exceptional. Shaun Pollock has a similar batting average but his bowling average is less than 21.5. :eek: :) ;)

You got it zxb.:D

Make Fleming captain and take Shaun instead of Lance. :D

I chose Dravid because Fleming is more intuitive than Dravid. I erred in taking Lance Klusener. Of course, Shaun Pollock is a better choice.

He got them in more tests than Murali, but all the same, wickets are wickets.

Meanwhile something which we would never have thought of a decade ago.;)

Bowlers from the United Arab Emirates have been offered 1,000 dollars by their officials if they can dismiss India's star batsman Sachin Tendulkar in the Asia Cup here on Friday.

Tough challenge for the UAE, especially with Dravid in good form and Sehwag after a double ton against them added on to Tend. :D

One of the UAE blokes gets his $1000. For a bowling spell of 7-2-25-1, he has earned it.

For a change Dravid scored more runs than balls faced.:D

I wish I knew why India were so low. They are currently the worlds second best team, pace bowler problems or not. Very strange. :confused:

Even stranger, if we beat the Ozzies, we jump from 5th place to 2nd.

Go figure.:rolleyes:

Then, good luck. :)

Admittedly, right now I'm a bit more concerned with how to get Gale out. :confused:

Dont be niave Agnostic. All home teams "doctor" the pitches to suit the home team, its part of the game. Just remember both teams get to play on the same pitch.

India got thrashed by NZ in NZ because they were cr@p. Badly led they just didnt want to be there, a bunch of over paid "superstars". That is why they're so low on the rankings.

Consistancy must include the ability to win away games, one thing the Indians have a really bad record for.
