Yeah... On a side note though...I would love to see an Indian bowler rip through a lineup .. a 7/30 kind of bowling performance ... On not a terrible wicket... but maybe the SA/Eng/Aus pitches...

----------

Closest I can think of are Srinath Vs Safrica in 1996 & maybe Agarkar Vs Aus in 2003....

Absolutely man!! Wud love to see that. M yearning for that too!! These days our bowling has gone to dogs, to say the least. Lets see how the Ashwins & the Ojhas fare when they are made to bowl on wickets that dont assist spin.

----------

In a nation of 1.2 bn, we arent bloody able to find a bowler who can bowl "Warmup deliveries" at 145k, and then that goes into 150s consistently. That coupled with Line & Length........cant get greedy & ask for swing. Its difficult to do that at this kind of speed.

Thats alright. But still man.....a tearaway guy.....Steyn, Morkel, Lee (Of the past though). Batsmen shud have a fear of losing one of their body parts while batting.

Dont know what would have been the reaction if any of the subcontinent team would have performed this way! Foreign media would have had hell lots of stories.Also I read that Andy Bichell is made the selector of AU, Hmmm.. Seems like he has some job to do!

"And it looks like I've slept through another amazing day of cricket... 47. Good try, we still own the record. Oh... that's not a good one. "
Iain O'Brien, the New Zealand fast bowler, manages to make fun of the Aussies while being self-deprecatory

So guys, who just follow cricket, do keep this in mind the next time India tours SA. Dont come out mocking at the team if this kind of thing happens. SA conditions are totally unpredictable.
