TE, my comment is not exectly inline with the discussion you were having about Sehwag. But if you recall our match against Bermuda, you must think twice before neglecting them...remeber Mukuddem and Kevin and how many of the first 20 runs were scored off the bat and we were in the scare of a defeat....and the crime
term sounds too harsh! We already have enough bitter experience of digesting such comments and we should not do the same for the other weaker teams.
Your statement that they are part-timers can be true; but they have some class players as well. Kevin has raw pace topping 95mph and Mukuddem is a decent swing bowler (did not play against India). Hemp has county experience. Minors and Cann have good technique with the ability to hit powerfully. They were the weakest team of the world cup. They had problems with experience and professonalism. But scoring against them is not something that you have to disregard completely.
