Well he averages over 40 in both forms of the game so i'd say he's doing alright for himself so far.

Yeah he is doing alright.

5 years ago I used to hope he'd become as good a batsman as Crowe. Not yet at least - i think now career looks like it

I half want this to happen and half don't, if they miss out the BCCI will formulate some dumb loving rules that stops them ever missing the final 4 again

If you listen straight off the iheart website on your computer it's only slightly ahead of the TV so it's alright to listen to without adjustment.

e. if you really want i think you can load it in VLC and adjust it to be in sync on using that

I like how the commentators have been spinning Guptil as being in the team as a specialist fielder instead of opening batsman.
It doesn't hurt that he has taken more catches than runs he has scored.
