They're all good players of left arm spin, right arm spin. They're also good at playing medium pacers like those who are McGrath's pace (though not accurate medium pace bowling). However, they all suck playing really fast bowlers like Brett Lee, or good quality leg spinners like Kumble or McGill. They also do not have the confidence to bat against strong teams, but they have enough confidence to play against weak teams. Lets say it this way - they used to even suck against weak teams 4 years back (Remember somebody named Coddington from Canada?)They're also not good enough to play on bouncy tracks, making them tigers at home and kittens away from home.Which leads us to believe that our tail enders are very good, when actually they are not.

The simple truth in Cricket is that in the long run averages do not lie. Our lower order and top order , Bashar excluded, are not a million runs away. In fact , less than 5 runs.

Just look at the avarage of tushar imran, habibul bashar and few others. and you will find a difference of just 7-8 runs.

you may say that " don't mind the avarage". but statistics don't lie

News at Eleven - tailenders challenged by quality bowling.

And in other news, the Pope has been confirmed as Catholic, the Sun rises each and every day, and Sistiani revealed not to eat pork.
