    If all you have to do to win this thing is smack a bowler of Albie Morkel's standard then I should be winning this thing FFS. Hit the guy who got 7fer gloriously through the covers on saturday.

    No one said they were. All I'm saying is Test Cricket >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> IPL. Give it Samuels for all I care, he deserves it. Don't give it to some guy who spanked some pie chuckers on a road.

    What about Samuels then? He got a century and an unbeaten 70odd against a very goo attack. Bisla tonked a team who's best bowler wouldn't make the England side.

    I think Marlon Samuals should win. When his teams mates fell like dominoes he stuck it out and battled for WI agaisnt a good attack. to score 100 and 70 odd is really good.
