A chance for any russian primadonnas to go and see the GOAT doing what he does best - especially if they are not doing anything else during wimbledon finals....

a misnomer or should I say false advertising for both teams
neither would be filled with current squads

Sehwag had to find a way to England in case India needs him I see.

I imagine Finch and Read must be fairly excited to be part of that team.

Will be great if we could see Sachin and Lara together at the crease.
And Warne and Murali bowling from two ends.

I expect ROW to win this easily. They have the much better side, though MCC has Chanderpaul.

I see Tamim Iqbal in the ROW side.
That's one smart way of getting the large number of Bangladeshis in England interested.

Could've got a Saffer in there too. Seems to be the only country missing out.
Maybe Ntini in place of Tino Best.

Tendulkar and Warne look old and ran down, both look 10 years older then what they are, look like shit.

I'm pretty fond of Tamim Iqbal. He batted beautifully in England a few years ago. Was very consistent.

Ajmal is spoiling the fun by taking too many wickets. :-)
Sachin should just remove him from the attack. For now.
Let the score at least get to 150 or so.

Lee just made Cook the happiest man in this world.

Maybe Warne should have worn long slevees for some extra protection.


Lee has been known to bowl intentional beamers maybe that was one too.

293/7 then. Very good score, thanks to Yuvi. Decent support from Collingwood and Siddle.

Dravid took a sharp catch in the slips. Was really good to watch. :-)

Video of the beamer.

Cookie shows how to captain. Just slip some money to Mr. Lee with a handshake and a wink. Job done.

Also, what is Finch on about? Doesn't he know he needs to get out because people came to watch Dravid and Lara bat?

The last time I watched Lara bat, he was out first ball in an ICL game.
Hope he hangs around longer this time.

Hah. Finch. Probably thinking "these guys like Dravid, Lara, Tendulkar, Gilchrist, KP... were they ever as good as me?" This young man likes batting in England.

Just a bit of the c-word it looks like.

Lee never did have a lot of thought or control to his bowling, his only real strength was his speed.

his lateral direction is ok, not so much the vertical direction
Tait is the opposite

no surprise this match was dominated by current players

just shows the level of drop off when even great players retire

but in aussie bogan linguistics 'shocking' can simply mean 'really bad'
