Answer.com has a nice little piece on SLAs'

In it's examples of current left-arm orthodox spinners it lists the following:

Daniel Vettori, a member of the New Zealand cricket team
Ashley Giles, a member of the England cricket team
Yuvraj Singh, a member of the Indian cricket team
Darren Lehmann, a member of the Australian cricket team
Ray Price, a member of the Zimbabwe cricket team
Murali Karthik, a member of the Indian cricket team
Nicky Boje, a member of the South African cricket team

Can someone explain how part-times like Yuvraj and Lehmann make it but a consistent guy like Rafique is left out? I'm not one to cry conspiracy but this is positively baffling.

You can edit pages on wikipedia... i just edited it. It should include rafique now. Lehmann and Yuvraj are there maybe because some fans of theirs added them.

Its right here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-arm_orthodox_spin)

Wikipedia is a good site as you can edit it yourself if you find errors or if the article is outdated.

Yes, but there are a LOT of good people who will revert back to the good version. It usually happens within 5 minutes.

Here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Cricket)
is the Wikipedia Cricket Page. Near the bottom is a goals list. These are some topics for articles that you guys can write if you want to.

You have to know Wikipedia more closely in order to reliaze that not everyone can write whatever they want to write in wikipedia. They have a huge admin base and writer base. If they find too many abuse from one ip they either disable that ip from editing or totally bans.

And when any new writer write or edits something it automatically becomeson provision untill the "admin" check it first.

Wikipedia is the best online free pedia out there.

Another one I like, which is not exactly a pedia is howstuffworks.com

Cheers.
