Yeah, I saw that Sussex-Kent match, and Dwayne Smith was awesome!
<ok>
The problem is not his ICL history. The problem is his Kolpak status. To get that contract with Sussex, he had to announce his retirement from international cricket. That's why the Kolpak issue needs to be sorted out. It's hurting the smaller, poorer sides like the West Indies....

Sri Lanka have such a an unstable country at the moment that i wonder how the players will perform.
They might be absent minded and get defeated easily OR they might be determined to prove a point.
Lets see what happens.
But still i feel SL dont have enough big hitters on their team. That puts alot of pressure on their bowling attack. And in T20, most bowlers are going to get hammered at some point.

Dude, whatever you are on, get off it at once! You are dancing excitedly to the beat of your own &%* drum! And while you are at it, try not to pretend you know how to break dance because one misstep might require the summoning of EMS! <laugh>

That was then; this is now!

Between Chris Gayle and Yuvraj Singh, everyone knows who is the master and who is the interloper, who is the teacher and who is the pupil, who is the man and who is the boy, who is the contender and who is the pretender! <biggrin>

Gayle has his flaws, but when he gets in the zone, he's the most destructive batsman in my opinion.

He took apart the mighty South Africa in the last 20/20 World Cup, was blasting New Zealand on their home turf, in the recent tour and has now put the sword to the Australian attack on Saturday.

I'm not going to make comparisons with Yuvraj, because i'm a big fan of his batting style as well. The high backlift he gets reminds me of Lara, Greenidge and Zaheer Abbas.
