Errrmm, isn't he about as English as Nelson Madella? Am sure he never came to England for the money did he? :mrgreen:
His mum is English.

So's mine but I don't play for England.

Great decision by Vaughan to insert them. No team likes batting just after the rain.

What a player McCullum is. Stll can't accept that a slogger can succeed at Test cricket though. It offends my purist sensibilities.

Doing quite well. If the rain holds off then there should be a poistive result with England in the box seat.

Bucknor was over the hill about five years ago. He's only kept on the panel because he's black, West Indian and has a bit of a cult following.

Bloody hell, did anyone catch Mike Atherton absolutely destroying Daniel Vettori in his Times column? That's the biggest slating I think I've ever read from one ex-pro to a current pro.

I thought it was thoroughly embarrassing. By no reckoning does Vettori deserve to be slated like that in a national newspaper. He and Athers obviously have some previous history. Athers would be better off admitting that than writing a toe-curlingly embarrassing open letter in a national newspaper.

Bang out of order. Vettori only did what most fellas would do. I'd like to know what Athers really has against the bloke.

I suspect this is what Phil is referring to:

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/ ... 934749.ece

Interesting stuff. Obviously though, it just boils down to money. New Zealand players are very poorly paid, even the "stars" don't make a huge lot of money from the game. Then you're finished in your mid 30's and have to turn to coaching or get a real job. It's all a bit grim really. So I don't see how Vettori, Bond, Fleming or anyone else could possibly justify turning down the insane sums of money the IPL and ICL are offering for basically a couple of months easy work.

I really don't like 20-20. It's a bastardised form of non cricket, almost Baseball like but lacking the subtlety. It really is just a slogathon. But there's no doubt it's taking over either. The billion cricket mad Indians are lapping it up and money will take the players there. Already in India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, Test cricket has been marginalised, with money spinning one dayers taking centre stage. 20-20 will just further remove the players from the proper form of the game.

Test cricket is dying.

I wonder though, if Test cricket falls flat on its face; where will the new stars come from? 20-20 is good at taking established players and parading them around while they slog the ball to all parts, but will it really breed new quality players? I'm not so sure.

Thanks mate,I agree with everything he said,if Vaughan had done the same thing he would have been destroyed by the media,I dont mind a bit of 20/20 but the ipl will die a death if it doesn't change to a 3 or 4 week comptition and you can bet your life the ECB's compo will piss all over it.

A good ton from MV gives England a lead of 42 on 1st innings,over to the bowlers.

I reckon Vaughan would have done exactly what Vettori did. Apparently a good proportion of MV's energies are currently directed towards getting a slice of the Allen Stanford 20-20 money (even though he doesn't play 20-20 cricket).

I think a greedy, calculating bastard lurks beneath the regular Yorkshireman facade.

That would be regular Lancashire lad facade seeing as he was born in scumchester.Stanfords compo has nowt to do with it and vaughan would not have done the same thing as vettori did,as usual you were wrong with your original point so you just start throwing mud at any fucker to see if it sticks.

Simon Barnes asked a reasonably interesting if not massively original question about Vaughah in this morning's Times:

Is Michael Vaughan a very decent batsman who had a brief spell in which he could do no wrong? Or is he a batsman of classical genius who has been unlucky with injuries and other matters beyond his control?

Somewhere between the two, I suppose?

Just saw Mike Atherton conducting the post-test interview with a certain Daniel Vettori...

Athers was all effusive bonhomie. Vettori played a straight bat.

Wonder if they've sorted things out privately, perhaps?

I'd love to see you go up to Vaughan and tell him he's not a Yorkshireman.

I reckon he'd say: "And who are you, you fucking clown?"

Which would be bang on the money.
