I guess Gilly (the real one) and Hayden werent too apathetic in their approach to the game though

MIG

Just looks too much of a Saffie club right now...almost feels that others are like unwanted guests !

Not all saffies are annoying... We are generally a happy laid-back bunch!!!! (except for the road rage thingy)

You guys have got to unnerstand...

Smith is the captain...auto selection
Boucher the wickey...auto selection
Smith will NOT go into any match without Kallis...

Daoud
14th October 2005, 14:55
Boucher the wickey...auto selection
Only an auto selection due to mess up by selectors. Sangakarra, Kamy and Taibu were much better options

mulan
14th October 2005, 15:19
mess up by selectors. Sangakarra, Kamy and Taibu
Whooopeee! Something we agree on... ;)

Anyhow, I think the selectors realised their mistake, but couldn't do anything about it after the die has been cast....

Billy
14th October 2005, 15:45
Wow.

England's 4th change bowler opening the bowling.. who came up with that gem? The fact that Fred's now bowling some of the worst spells I've seen from him for 2 years and I don't really care probably says a lot about this tournament's value. It was nice to see Harmison do well early on but after that it was all a bit limp.

Oh and I don't know why you're so harsh on Boucher, he didn't really mess anything up (unless something happened in the last overs after I went to bed?). I'd certainly pick him over Taibu and Akmal.

Amir
14th October 2005, 15:48
Billy he dropped Hayden prior to his 100 I believe.

Daoud
14th October 2005, 16:00
WIth 6 specialist batsmen plus Flintoff, batting is pretty much irrelevent. Kamran is far superior to Boucher, especially when it comes to spinners. And Taibu is a probably a better batsman anyway

And sorry about that Miggy

Officer Barbrady
14th October 2005, 16:04
And sorry about that Miggy

Wonder what you said about the Saffies. I trust it was interesting.

Daoud
14th October 2005, 16:11
Very mundane actually. Just made a tongue-in-cheek question about Saffies in his workplace, but he doesnt want that information to be released (ie where he works)

Officer Barbrady
14th October 2005, 16:18
o. Rumor has it, MIG in reality is a saffie himself. He is here, undercover, in preperation for the 2006-7 SA-Pak series and trying to understand the physcology of the individuals (Pakistani that is).

And yes I don't make good jokes.

Boucher was awful behind the stumps and thats not a surprise. i agree that taibu, akmal or sangakarra shud have played.

umarbeast
14th October 2005, 23:57
World XI should be happy with 6 wickets in one day on a great batting track. They need get glichrist out early to keep total below 450. I have call it a even at this point.

Geordie Ahmed
15th October 2005, 00:02

MIG
15th October 2005, 01:24
Boucher was awful behind the stumps and thats not a surprise. i agree that taibu, akmal or sangakarra shud have played.

Sangakara for the simple reason that he keeps regularly for Murali and secondly, he has been on top batting form for the series....

Fortunate for India, Gavaskar is NOT one of the selectors !

I think the SA bias is too obvious in this team!

OTW
15th October 2005, 01:53
First hour tomorrow will be crucial.

Gilchrist has the capability, given the nature of his game, to get out in the second over trying to belt a boundary, or by the time it's lunch, could very well be around 170-180.

MacGill's inclusion makes the tail a lot weaker with McGrath getting a promotion to 10 - which will put a bit more pressure on both Warne and Lee. If they repeat their heroics from the Ashes with the bat, and Gilly clicks, 450+ is on the cards. If not, the ROW XI might end up looking at a total around 360-380 on the board.

Officer Barbrady
15th October 2005, 02:33
Sanga isn't always even a first-choice keeper for the test 11 for SriLanka. Akmal/Taibu would have been good choices. Taibu has done well but Akmal's ability to keep against spin might have counted in his favor.

Check out the batting averages of the World XI:

Smith - 55
Sehwag - 55
Dravid - 58
Lara - 54
Inzamam - 50
Kallis - 56
Flintoff - 33
Boucher - 30
Vettori - 24

I think it's safe to say the World XI will take a first-innings lead with that batting lineup. But then again, cricket can be a funny game.

8.4 Kallis to Langer, OUT: and Kallis strikes! good length delivery,
angling across, Langer looking to cut it away off the back-foot
only manages to edge it straight to Smith at first slips

Well i hope in the 2nd innings Flintoff plays with the same aggression but controls it a bit more. He was taking Macgill to pieces before gifting his wicket away. If he went after the real bad balls then he could've taken him out of the attack.

That passage of play post lunch was pretty inspiring from Murali and Flintoff.

Overall they lost 9 wickets for 47, and apparently that makes it Australia's worst batting collapse in Australia for 117 years.

even thou dravid,lara,inzi are top players of spin i can see them struggling here. i expect r.o.w to get less than there 1st inns total. my guess 150-180 max.

I think Inzi might end up with the lowest average of the world 11. I hope Boucher gets 0 again so Inzi doesn't end up with the worst average. 0.5 runs is better than 0 ( but only just)

i know wat you mean.

23.3 Lee to Kallis, one run, full and on the pads, worked to the leg
side for a single
23.4 Lee to Inzamam-ul-Haq, no run, short one first up to Inzamam who
ducks
23.5 Lee to Inzamam-ul-Haq, OUT: The sucker punch! An incredibly fast
yorker, 154 kmph, crashes into pad, loud shout for the lbw, Rudi
Koertzen does not think it is missing leg and up goes the slow
finger of death!

ICC World XI 70/5, Partnership of 1

What's the point of them referring almost every appeal and then giving inzi out on a shocker like that without checking. How stupid. All this will do is dent inzis confidence and give flintoff / harmy etc plenty of ammunition on how to get inzy out come the pak series.
