It was interesting to read Dalmiya's comment that "Australia don't have the
quality spinner that we have." Any opinions on this? I have been quite
impressed by Hogg's bowling thus far, and less than impressed by Harbhy's
showing in this world cup. I am not so sure this match up is a knockout in
favour of Harbhy. What do others think?

Not sure about the bowling, but Hogg is so annoying because he always sticks
his tongue out when he bowls!

Harby is much more gracious in his celebrations when he takes a wicket.  As
are most bowlers compared to the Aussies.

That Dalmiya is pig-ignorant about cricket? Tell us news, not history.

Cheers,

Btw, here is the relevant excerpt from Peter Roebuck's world XI selection.
Notice that he does not even mention Harbhajan. Hogg is chosen. My personal
choice would have been the same. Hogg also is an outstanding fielder, while
Harbhy's fielding is below par in my opinion.

"A spinner is needed as we want to have some fun, beside which variety has
had a part to play late in most innings in this World Cup. John Davison has
been the leading Australian in the tournament and merits consideration
though in which capacity it is hard to say. Murali has bowled gamely without
taking many wickets, and Collins Otieno has bowled skilfully when given a
reasonable field. Risking complaints of bias from the international brigade,
my nomination falls upon Brad Hogg, who has beaten the bat regularly and has
hardly bowled a short ball. These wrist spinners have been a delight in a
tournament dominated by pace."

Is Roebuck therefore saying that Murali is a wrist-spinner? And hence a
chucker?

Frigging feral PGP ***...
