Appreciating Mike Hussey

Michael Hussey won all 3 Man of the Match awards in the Sri Lanka test series, and not suprisingly the Man of the Series award.  He may have gone through struggles not all that long ago, but because of his recent sucesses, he is clearly the Savior.

Debutant's Ball

I had my first cricket dream the other night. 

I was a batsman for New Zealand (I support Australia, of course, but I was playing for New Zealand in my dream...go figure).  I was making my test debut, coming in to bat.  I got bowled first ball.  Even in my dreams I suck balls at cricket.

A (Semi) Interesting Question/Concept Thingy

After a week in which I saw Australia pick up a test win (Yay!), I came up with the question while on a long car ride.

If you were to make a test team out of one player from all 10 test teams (2 from the team you support), what would it be?

As an Australian supports, I would pick 2 Australians and one from Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, and Zimbabwe.

So anyway here's mine.

1. Tamim Iqbal
2. Tillakaratne Dilshan
3. Rahul Dravid
4. Shivnarine Chanderpaul
5. Ian Bell
6. Kane Williamson
7. Tim Paine
8. Brett Lee
9. Dale Steyn
10. Ray Price
11. Wahab Riaz

I think it's sort of an interesting concept.  So, if anyone is out there reading this, your opinions please.
