re: Was looking forward to see

Me too. Was hoping to see the off spinner...
I like to a see a young right arm leg break bowler coming through..Malinga Bandara was not bad...not too many joys in cricket than to watch a master leg spinner like Warne in action. Too bad there wasnt much TV coverage when Quadir was playing..So excluding him, after having seen a lot of Anil, Danesh, Mushy and a few more, I have no doubt Warne was the greatest of the leggies and possibly the greatest spinner ever..hmmm does that statement make me very unpopular? :)

@MTC, Malinga Bandara didn't

@MTC, Malinga Bandara didn't have a 'googly' in his armory, am sure he wud've lasted longer if he did.

RE: Shane Warne: er... I have actually picked Warne in My All time XI ahead of Murali( uh oh), purely because of his cricketing brain. Think Murali and Warne are equals talentwise, but Warne just edges Murali when it comes to thinking. There s actually an youtube video abt Warne actually "laughing" a batsman out!!!! The guy laughed him out!!! :D)
Warne actually admitted that he only ever possessed TWO deliveries; leg break and googly, but all the other deliveries; slider,fliper etc. were just mind games! :D)

PS: Jeewan Mendis has a ripper of a googly, might worth giving him a shot in tests as a bowler

i actually use www.cricket-365.net but am going to try the others to see if theya re any better.

and now i see that there are two "traitors" to the cause :) honestly think that Murali had more control than Warne. i also like to think that Murali had more pure talent but its diff to say how much of that was the "deformity".

Mathews seems to be

Mathews seems to be struggling to up his game in 'non-pressure' situations. That's why he does well when he s challenged more in ODIs. Just like we do well in final exams, when we study 'last minute', but do worse when study two months before the exams :D)

Agents commenting

Roshan asked to comment on selections......just isnt right....If you are an angent, you shouldnt do commentary....when SLC recognizes agents and certifies them, I hope this is addressed :)

hmmmmm is it just me or does he seem to show sings of a slight deformity when bowling a few deliveries? :)......
Or did Warnaweera give him some of the 'herbs' he is growing in the 'backyard'? hmmm...Now Warnaweera too did have a slight deformity of his own when bowling :)
