whether he liked it or not he was a public figure, it comes with the territory. I was'nt only talking about what he's done off the field either, are we forgetting his cricket related activities such as dealing with an indian bookie or perhaps that whole banned substance thing.Disgraced our country? Hate him? That's a bit harsh. I don't think whatever he did in his public life was any business of ours or affected the way he played cricket. Sure, he was a bit of a dill at times, but judge what he did on the field, not off.
I'm excited to see what does happen to Australian cricket over the next few years, and see what new talents emerge.
Name a couple. I cant been how Voges, Hartley, Cullen, North, and others will fair in the National side. I heard on the news last night, that the last time a mass reshuffle occurred (following the retirements of G.Chappell, R.Marsh and D. Lillee in the early 80's) Australia went into a dark age. Lets hope it doesnt happen again.There's a huge talent pool within the domestic scene. There's plenty of good fast bowlers and spinners going around
Thats being a bit harsh man... Pk is 3rd in Test Rankings and 4th in ODIs... We do have ups and downs though, same with india....Not to forget the recent whitewash India got in ODI, but the performance in the test was excellent.... Pk will have a proper test of talent in SA... WE have been going through a lot of crisis...Cobol74 said:Whose going to beat Australia? Englands best team in a generation - OK with a couple of injuries - is heading for the paint brush (5-0)! India next best possibly - not a chance, Pakistan - nope, SA - shadow of their former selves, West Indies - population gone all American and play basket ball or gone all Premiership and play football (Soccer) so do not have the strength in depth. Sri Lanka need more than one world class player, NZ Play too much Rugby and are too small any way, any one else?
