not really, he was part of the mental disintegration coterie.

However, he himself suffered mental disintegration when media, south-africans players and spectators questioned the paternity of his 2 sons...

It was really not unexpected.The best thing about these white players is that they don't keep on playing if their mind or body is not able to keep up with the pace unlike most of Indian players of just refuses to retire,examples are many.

And unlike our stars,he gave the perfect starts to his team in all WC finals ( 99-03-07)by scoring fast half centuries in 99 & 03 and a century against SL in 07.These matches were decided then only.

And it just cant be co-incidence than our Star has failed in all the finals he has played.

Thanx Gilly for great entertainment you provided us in the last decade.
