Hands up! The Bullet is here.

by Gaurav Sethi

One of Samraweera’s double hundreds in Pakistan was sublime; can’t say which one, there were so many of them – ok, just two, that’s Kambliesque! Don’t know what it is with back to back doubles but they can get you into trouble. Samaraweera got shot.

A bullet can do many things, like rob you of runs. It wasn’t until the fourth test after the Lahore shoot out that Samara scored a hundred at Galle.

But the hundred was of little consequence as it was against a sick New Zealand side. The high point was his second innings firing – 20 of 15 balls with 2 sixes. That took his 6s tally to 4 of 53 tests. Looks like he really wants that ODI spot real bad. As was documented here, he has never hit an ODI 6.

If you saw the ugly heave he got out to, you’d say he’s not just ready for ODIs but T20 too. Move over Boom Boom,The Bullet is here.

Shane Warne – The best bowler Australia has ever produced has opened up his mind to the media. He exposed his discontent regarding umpires. According to the ace spinner barring a few exceptions like Simon Tauter and ASAP Rauf other umpires went awry in terms of performance .Expressing disappointment that the standard of umpiring has deteriorated to the worst extent in the past twenty years of time he opined that though umpiring was a hard job, the performances of the umpires in the Ashes series had been consistently so ordinary. As far as Warne is concerned umpire Billy Bowden whom he expected to deliver correct judgments was also not consistent in performing his duty.
The spinner repents that there are too many instances of such bad judgments, which is increasingly becoming a cause of concern. He directly made a mention of names of umpires Daryl Harper and Billy Bowden, accusing them to be adamant in not confessing their wrong judgments. He also tried to strengthen his claim by mentioning that several players were not having a good opinion about those umpires in their minds. Warne insisted that the umpires should maintain a friendly attitude towards the players by shedding their high-handed attitude Warne also expressed his view repetitively that fifty over match should be withdrawn once for all as if such a change is brought about it would enable the players to spend more time with their families and relieve them from

Younis khan, the incumbent skipper of Pakistan cricket team , has proclaimed that outwitting India will be his top priority in the Champions Trophy, when the two sides confront on September 26 in Centurion. Earlier team mate spinner Umar Gul also expressed the same. Sunday, and underline Pakistan’s poor record against India in ICC events.
The fact that Pakistan lost two times to India, in 2007 when the twenty-twenty tournaments were introduced had offended the feelings of his teammates, said Younis. Regarding team India as a highly talented one-day side, he said his teammates were looking forward to a vengeance. A long gap has been left since the last victory of Pakistan over India in the 2004 Champions Trophy. Relations between the two countries have been strained after the terror attacks in Mumbai last November, and this tension reflected in cricket too as both the teams have not played withy each other for an year.
