Good for him!!


(PS: I think we could have done with a few more runs from him last season and that would have made any captaincy possibilities more likely to avoid the same old debate we have had with Powell; Westy & Jim).

Feel sorry for him. First ball of the match for Ireland v Australia, captain of his country, a proud day - and he gets a 90mph snorter from Brett Lee - bowled for 0.

I don't think he could have done much about that ball. However, my point about him still stands- I think he is too loose technically to succeed as an opener. He ought to bat at 4- both for Ireland and Warwickshire.

I agree about that delivery. First three balls of the match all on the spot, doing a bit and and at 90mph plus. Two wickets and a very close lbw appeal. Not bad for someone who's almost 36.

Think he became the only batsman to be out to the first bal of an ODI Twice.

Which is a record so its not all bad. :thumbup:

Are you sure about that? Nobody else in the 41 year history of ODI's, especially as some sides play 300 meaningless ODI's a year. (Well it seems that way)

out first ball again i am afraid.

he is frustrating, because he looks, so talented ..... lets hope he can push on, because, it could be argued, he is somewhat futunate to be in the Bears first XI in the four day game on such a regular basis.

And another golden blob for him against the Windies today. Feel desperately sorry for him - it's never pleasant to see a player go through agonies like this.
Lara, Tendulkar ... Pilling.

I agree. A shame I had to go to the Surrey site to find out about it.

"Everybody at Surrey CCC sends congratulations to Gary and William on their fantastic achievement."
Meanwhile, everybody at Edgbaston is ignoring the whole thing.

Our site is probably asleep until the membership fee notices go out in the post :)
