Can AB bag another win?

Posted on/at 5:24 PM by The Cricket Corollary

AB & Biff both nominated for ICC Test Player of the Year & ICC Player of the Year

"It's the hardest I have trained with this team. We run three or four times every day, attend net sessions, sweat in the gym and work on our fitness in the pool ...We came short a few times, but there are many players in the team that are eager to improve. We believe we are the best team in the world and now is a good chance to prove that...I was very consistent the last year, but can improve in several areas. There's a big season ahead and no reason why we cannot win a number of trophies...We have not played much cricket in recent times, but have a few training games behind us. I believe we are all professional enough to gear ourselves mentally for the tournament." de Villiers said.

Dale Steyn has been nominated for the ICC's Test Player of the Year and Wayne Parnell for the T20 Performance of the Year.

Meanwhile news is that Smith is still recovering from his elbow surgery and Parnell has the flu. Give the boy Tamiflu, stat!

Parnie has the flu!! He will be okay for the Champions Trophy right? Give him shots!

I think AB has a while to go before bagging an ICC award.

Lets hope so.

Ja, I'm hoping Dilshan or Vettori will win.

Just noticed something. de Villiers, Gambir, Vettori & Dilshan all play for Delhi & are nominated.(Thought I should brag since I'll be siding with Delhi for the Champions League :)

There's the squads.

Ja, I'm for Delhi. I'm not going to support Jakes if he's not playing for the Proteas and I'm not supporting the Cobras because I'm a Titan and it's bad enough Biff is SA's captain.

But Steyn, ROFL and Bouch are all in the team as well! Plus NO KP! It's a bonus! I'm going to convert you. I think you are half converted already, seeing as you took Jakes out of the 'TCC Don't like you' list!

I don't know much about Pro20. I'm sticking with the Cobras because of Hersch. Smith unfortunately is a bad side-effect. But I'll live.

At least Duminy is in the Cobras.

I know Steyn & ROFL (fellow Titans) are in RCB, but Delhi is my team. I'll secretly cheer them on but I will go with Delhi. RCB can be my second choice.

Oh, oh what about super duper cool Nannes? Hmm?

Nannes is cool...BUT I don't like Delhi. I can't explain it! I guess I have a thing for teams that stutter and then come up. Delhi is too perfect.

Fine, I'll settle for the secret cheering. But you know when Delhi is out and RCB remains, you won't feel bad :D.
