ODI specialist fast-tracked into tests(-worma)

That almost sounds like a quiz question, doesn't it. How about the quote But I think his fielding alone can nearly win us a game? The player in question is Andrew Symonds, although we could as well be talking about Kaif. Read here what McGrath has to say about the Aussies desperately trying to make Symonds fit into their test equation. He may as well do that soon (as McGrath predicts..and I still maintain my reservations) but what he won't be is a test allrounder..however much CA might try sticking a fancy label on his head.

Meanwhile Motera: Ind are swiftly sealing the fate of a sorry Srilankan lineup..with Bhajji and Kumble doing the damage, as usual. And amidst the Laxman, Yuvraj, Bhajji accolades...what I didn't see getting much mention in the reports is Kaif's catching. Has already taken 5 in 14 SL wkts fallen so far. Not that I am suggesting, unlike McGrath, that he deserves a place just for his catching ;-)

Ohh and in case you have missed the *big* news of the day, Raj Singh Dungarpur is likely to be the manager of Indian team for the Pak tour, as per Telegraph sources. Read on...
