Zenith - Who do you like to be - Batty, or Hoggard?
BTW, This comment

here - http://content-ind.cricinfo.com/ci/content/story/243205.html really reflects my bafflement. Why aren't 'you'(English Touring Selectors) picking Hoggard, but picking Mahmood and Kabir Ali?

Hoggy needs a particular wicket to get some decent swing, otherwise he just looks a bit flat. Ali is a tad unreliable, but more flexible in terms of the wickets you can play him on.

Don't get me wrong, I [] Hoggy but I've seen him play some very pedestrian cricket. Personally, I think the reason you're flogging us in this one-day series is because your bowlers are comfortable and confident, and our batsman are currently pants.

Interesting. I have always seen Hoggard play only in India ofcourse, (Remember the last England tour to India?), and he has been brilliant whenever I saw him!

Valiant Effort by ... Err... Pietersen!!
Somehow, my favourite English bowler - Hoggard - was not that effective..

India just might lose intensity right now, and allow English a come back. So, 3-4 is still on! []

Actually, I feel sorry for English team. 40 Degrees is something even Indians cant stand for too long. And then just when you think everybody in the current English team is fit, Flintoff gets injured. Hopefully, it is not a bad one. I feel currently he is the soul of the English team, and without him we will be playing with a soulless team!

Dravid goes away for a game, and we have to lose it!, and that too to a England without Flintoff!!

Sack the non-performing Sehwag and Kaif I say, and bring on some new-blood.

Those were nice results of the game. I was able to watch the whole match which having to leave to come to school. [] []


Watching cricket is fine, but I don't think I'll be playing it for a while.
Got a bruise the other day when my cousin whacked the ball and I tried to stop it but it hit my thigh instead. [] Big bruise...

***YAAAYYYY***

Jumps for Joy!!

Finally a win in South Africa....

Sad that English lost though. I always want those bullying Aussies to lose (the cricket team atleast)

We deserved to lose; we were collectively pants, with only one or two bright spots. Well done the Aussies. []

New Zealand, on the other hand...

Stephen Fleming, I am not sure my love for you will survive this patch of uneven form. I am not a fickle woman, but you are pushing me too far. My wounded heart can only take so much.

God we're pants. What a good thing that I support New Zealand. They're unreliable but at least they put up a decent fight.

On the other hand, all of your good players just retired except Punter.

Absolutely agree with Athene. Australia has lost 75% of its winning strength. Atleast in test matches. All other teams batsmen can breathe free now!

Well, except England, who despite having lots of great young players coming through seem to manage to bollux up every easy chance they get.

Hearty COngratulations to the England team. Four wins on a Trot! Three of them against Australia!! Unbelievable stuff.

I hope the invincibility Aura of Australians is finally broken, and they become a mortal team after that beating.

[] I've rated him for a couple of years now. It's always nice to be proven right. [] *smug face*

I also rate Ian Bell; I think he's a good, solid batsman, although his fielding is not as watertight as Colly's.

I reckon we'll be seeing a lot more of Brad Hodge in the Aussie side; good player. []
