Clear Lee quick

The working over Lee gave Lara. Fantastic. Great to watch a furiously fast bowler work over a past master against quick bowling. The old one-two trick. Bouncers and yorkers. Fend off the throat, keep your toes out. Eventually BCL didn't and got caught in front. Good stuff. By the way, the six that Gayle hit of Warney; awesome!

:) It was great to watch that earlier today.. I think one of the commentators mentioned when Lara was on 1 that it was possibly the hardest 1 run he had made.

back aft a long time! kidhar tha? anyway something i nvr i thought i would see in my lifetime... WI 1st inns of 2nd test:
Warne 11-2-48-0,
Mcgill 11-3-18-3... Warne conceding more runs thn Mcgill.. Mcgill bein economical.. vry rare..

Did u see Mcgrath dismiss Gayle in 2nd inns? As Bill Lawry said "it was just wonderful"

n wht abt the embarassment of riches for Aus: Langer comes back, Hussey can't be droppd, Hodge plyd well, n u hv Katich, Clarke, Symonds in n arnd the team.. looks like Martyn is gonna have it tough.

BTW Martyn was the 2nd highest run getter in test for the year 2004. (bhnd Langer)... sad selectors man..

Martyn is the unluckiest of the lot and by the way it is really frustrating to see such two extremes of cricket on display...WI going down the slump and Aussies playing exemplary clinical cricket again! Oh I'd die for a series like the Ashes!

No one upbeat about England's tour of Pak? England should be kicking themselves hard! Flintoff/Harmisson bowl them into the game and all the batsman bat themselves out of the game!!!Really sad:-(

minal woh to expected tha!! i would hv been surprised had england won tht match. with Kaneria bowlin on 5th day pitch n Shoaib who would need just 2-3 fast overs of madness to turn the game, it wd hv bn difficult for Eng. but they did run them close. i dnt think they'l win this series not aft Pak hv sored 462 in 1st inss-2nd tst..

Hey PK,
Hey i had no clue, i'll call and wish her!! And really sweet of mangi!

True i did not give England much of a chance but seeing how those two bowled on a lifeless day 1 track I thought the batsman owed it to Freddie and Harmisson!

Well after 1st innings of second test as you said looks highly difficult.

I am back on my blog was on a break....
