i really hope this gets everyone off his back, i never understood the hate. i think it might, my friend who hates him (but cant give a good reason why) said today "you know he's not too bad a bloke" so maybe!!!
i was predicting slog it til tea and then just take 2-4 overs after tea and declare, just to annoy the indians. but i'm sure he knows best (plus was prob a smart move to show the public he is a team man, not that going to tea wouldve been a selfish move)
I never got the hate either, some of my friends think it's because of his reputation as a 'pretty boy'? Perhaps people are jealous or something, he always came off a good guy and someone who loved his cricket.
Yeah everyone was expecting that, the look on Mark Taylor's face when he declared said it all. Definitely picked up some respect for that selfless act. Hopefully bad weather won't stop us from getting a well deserved (and historic) win.
