    well it's the 2nd ODI between India and Sri Lanka.
    After a drubbing in the first can India handle Mendis and Murali?

    Doesn't seem to be that they can, and after the test series loss.

    Having a good fast bowler is brilliant but these 2 spinners are match winners, especially on their tracks.

    bangladesh getting a drubbing in the 2nd ODI in NT.
    Looks like a 10 wkt win.
    Over in the UK can ENG topple SA from the top and go into 2nd place in the ODI league?

    they can still win if they get India out for a low score, otherwise a draw is on the cards

    This is why I no longer follow the complete and utter farce that is NZ Cricket, a headline from yesterday:

    Cricket: Black Caps eye clean sweep in Bangladesh
    A 3-0 series win would have seen them at #2 in the ICC One-dayer rankings. And then this, from today:

    Cricket: Bangladesh humble Black Caps
    Cocks.

    ^^Thing is I no longer even find it surprising anymore, that's how bad it has gotten. If there's a batting collpse to be had and a way to lose to be found you can bet the Blackcrap's be on to it.

    Then you've got a short memory, they used to regularly thrash the Aussies. Chappell didn't order that under-arm bowled for no reason.

    That's the trouble with the youth of today, they weren't born early enough!

    But in those days (and it was never was or rarely a thrashing) you had one Sir Richard Hadlee, the Crowe brothers and a few others whereby my memory has failed.

    Hadlee had to be one of the best fast and astute bowlers in any condition and in cricket history.

    In fact if he did not make it in my first "best side ever" he certainly would make it in my B team. And he could bat as well and bating is what is bringing your lot down.

    Hadlee and Botham . . . two of the very best all-rounders ever.

    And, sorry Ant:



    Anyone remember Lance cairns and the way he swung that bat like it was a pencil . . . POWER Plus

    Ahh yes, no school kid not worth their salt didn't have an 'Excalibur' bat (Cairn's signature shoulder-less bat) when I was a kid.

    Many a tennis ball was lost to a beautifully executed pull-shot in the backyard

    The Idia - Aus test looks like finishing in a draw. Bloody limp wristed, girly wirly Indians went off for bad light. Bloody hell, it was like a bright summers day when a cloud goes over the sun and whoosh - they're off. Fuck it, fight ya bastards. LOst about half an hour of on, off, on, off garbage, They are just coming back on now but bugger all time left now. Bring on the quicks and smash the woofters

    well a draw as I predicted.
    ponting should have been man of the match for his batting and captaincy though he should have declared at the end of the 4th day!

    Winning in India is extremely difficult and with the batting side the Indians have (Tendulka and company) the declaration was correct IMO.
