Smithy...

Ha!

I'm not the biggest fan of the Australian cricket team, but this time, I'm glad they thrashed the South Africans.

Because Graeme Smith is an arrogant bastard. Go on, make disparaging remarks about Shane Warne, who for all his antics, is arguably the best modern day test bowler. In this last test, Smith made 22 and 25, while Warne took 2 and 4 wickets. Talk less and bat more, what?

I had been to a stand-up thing last month (Jim Jeffries, some white dude, at Take Five in Indiranagar), and even that guy had a story about Smith's arrogance. I think it's wiser people earn their stripes before becoming a test captain. He may be a good batsman, but regularly losing captains should think twice before throwing attitude.

My two bits, cos it's MY blog. Ha!

What happens if using the same tactics, he wins the next test? Oz have been found out by arrogant captains before (Ganguly vs. Waugh)...

They are equally arrogant, so I actually wouldn't be surprised. But really, does this South African team look like it can beat the Aussies are home? I don't think so.

On the other side, probably its Smith's arrogance is just a measure to keep the sledging aussies on the backfoot
