Question for Aussie Cricket fans.?

I know a lot of people are saying we have no good spinners anywhere in the country, they keep playing these crap spinners like hauritz and krejza who in my opinion are useless. In my opinion the best spinner on form is Aaron heal from W.A, his performances and figures speak for themselves, why the hell havnt the selectors given him a go, things can’t get any worse. Your opinions?
great answers so far, i like to see everyone’s opinions. yeh main reason, i know he may not have warne like wicket amounts, but if you watch him bowl, in my opinion he beats the bat more than any of the others, which is something that doesnt show in stats

Chosen Answer:

No idea who this Aron Heal is. Forget Australia, if you search the entire planet you won’t find a replacement for Warne.
The same’ll happen to India when Sachin retires: these are phases and one has to go through them

t20 wc 2010 previews of each team by me(non biased)?

the t20 world cup 2010 will be extremely tough because evryteam looks in very good form and all teams have vey good players

afghanistan:
they will definetely not win this year because its their first world cup and they are a new team

ireland:
ireland wont win because they dont have any good bowlers

zimbabwe:
zimbabwe have a chance of getting into the super eight because they have over 7 spinners and spinners are very usefull in t20 because of their econimy rate. they dont have any good seamers or any good batting though

bangladesh:
bangladesh are a very good team and they are really good in t20 because they have loads of spinners( spinners mostly dont give too many runs) and they have a very strong batting line up. but the biggest problem with bangladesh is that they are in the toughest group.

south africa:
south africa have a chance because they have one of the best fielding, they have good seamers, good batsmen but their spinners are rubbish

india:
india have a very strong batting line up and but their bowling is very bad and their fielding needs to improve.

west indies:
west indies have a great chance of winning because of home advantage. they have a good batting line up with the likes of gayle and pollard. their fast bowling is extremely deadly at home and their main spinner ( suliemen benn) is in good form so they are likely to get in the semi finals

sri lanka:
they have a very good chance because they are a very good allround team in t20. they have the best opening pair in t20 ( dilshan and jayasury) but after sangakara theyre middle order is weak. they have one of the best bowling with the likes of mendis and very good pace bowling with malinga and kulasekkera.

new zealand:
newzealand look are also favs becuase they are a very similar team to sri lanka; they have very good batting with the likes of brendon mccullum and ross taylor and their pace bowling is very good with the likes of shane bond and tim southee. they also have one of the best spinner ( daniel vettori)

australia:
australia look really strong aswell with one of the best fielding but their batting is weak in t20s. their pace bowling is their speciality in t20 with the likes of shaun tait,dirk nannes,brett lee and mitchell johnson but they have weak spinners. in my opinion they should have put shane warne instead of nathan hauritz even though warne is like 40.

england:
england have a very good chance of winning an in my opinion they are they best allround team in t20 with one of the best fielding, one of the strongest batting with the likes of morgan, kp and colling wood. they also have one of the best bowling line up and they have one of the best spinners of right now ( grame swanne)

pakistan( my team):
pakistan are one of the favs with very good batting with the likes of afridi,young umar akmal , misbah and razzaq and we have the strongest bowling line up with the likes of umar gul muhammad asif and young muhammad amir. we also have the best spinning pair in t20 ( and odis) saeed ajmal and shahid afridi.

pakistan will win the t20 wc 2010 inshallah.

WOW dude
you are a Legend

Does this prove that Graeme Swann is the most dangerous spinner in the world today…..?

He is undoubtedly the best spinner currently, I reckon. But is it possible to knock the bottle top by a cricket ball?

I,too, would like to see Bhajji on the top but the fact is He is terrible out of form at the moment. Its been quite sometimes now. If you are the strike bowler of your side, your work is not only to contend the batsman but to take wickets too.
@mrjinx64, it was not thrown by Warnie. Its been computerized.

@Joeblow, Nice examples to prove me wrong.

Chosen Answer:

It doesn’t prove anything other than he got lucky with bowling the ball in the right spot.

I can remember when I was in high school we were at an indoor basketball court and I got a basketball up one end of the court and when no teacher was watching I just kicked it as far as I could up the other end of the court. I kicked it so that it landed in the hoop up the other end on the full without even touching the rim! It would have been about a 40+ metre kick with a basketball and to land it in the hoop without it even touching the rim would be a 1 in a million type shot. That doesn’t mean I am the best kick of a basketball in the world. Also I kicked a football (Australia rules foortball that is) in the basketball court at school and I was deliberately aiming to kick it in the hoop and I landed it 3 times out of about 15 tries. If you know what an Australian rules football looks like, it takes a lot of control with the kick to get it to remain straight and spin the correct way to have a chance of going in the hoop. I am by no means the best kick of a football in fact I would be lucky to kick a goal from 30 metres out, but sometimes you can just fluke it.

Who is the best left arm spinner in world cricket today ?

Here are a few options -

* Daniel Vettori
*Brad Hogg
*Murali Karthik
*Monty Panesar ( Go Monty ! , lol )
*Sanath Jayasuriya
* Rehman ( Pak)
* Raffique ( Bangladesh)
* Yuvraj Singh (lol, he has been in great bowling form recently)
*Ray Price ( Zimbabwe, fantastic bowler)
* Leverock ( Bermuda ,lol)
* Paul Harris

If i have missed anyone, feel free to add his name to this list.

Chosen Answer:

Ray Price was great, its a shame for Zim to lose a player like him…., though they lost many…. Heath Streak was the greatest underrated bowler..
