    A slip up?

    Robert Craddock writes in The Courier-Mail about the kind of work ethic on display by members of the World XI who lost by a narrow margin to Australia two days ago.

    Craddock's report proves that I was spot on about there being many a slip between the keeper and bowler. Apparently Inzamam assumed that his seat at first slip had been dusted and kept ready for him, for when slip catching training commenced, he announced that he'd stand at first slip. Graeme Smith let Inzi in on the secret that he'd been volunteered for third slip, the decision being taken when Inzi was catching up on his jet lag. Remember that as it is, Inzi would have been sulking about not being made captain, when he clearly wanted the job.

    It remains to be seen if Inzi's performance show was in any way related to the events before the game. Inzamam isn't the only one who has been castigated. Sehwag, who scored the World XI's only fifty, apparently joined hands with Inzamam in making fun of Graeme Smith's attempts at getting his side to buck up during practice.
