    He used to take catches at fine leg wearing a horse blanket after drinking 30 schooners the night before.

    Damn right son. That’s why Chappelli is Australia’s greatest ever captain like Warney says.

    This bloke Jamieson from NZ makes Cameron Green look like Justin Langer. And a bloody handy bowler.

    Like all good kiwis we should get him over the ditch and claim him.

    What about Wadey? Parthiv Patel would have to be up there, too.

    Yep. Gilly was a world class keeper imo. He used to take some screamers off the quicks; but also kept beautifully to Warney.

    Mate I thought I’ll watch a bit of NZ v Pakistan with my morning coffee and couldn’t believe my eyes, thought I’d put on the NBA by mistake. Hadnt seen him before. And he bowled something like 11 overs with figures of 2/8. Indeed see how he goes overseas in the future but NZ’s attack now looks world class with him in there.

    I suspect keeping is bad now because it is not important in the modern game of limited overs cricket where the money is. You arent making an IPL team because of keeping.

    Boult looked fit as well and was up around 140Kph. If they can get Ferguson up to speed and piss southee off their attack will improve 10 fold

    Rahane being described as selfless and a team player.

    So essentially the opposite of MS Dhoni.

    Good to see Jadeja maintains the tradition of understated unplanned spontaneous celebrations
