Not sure I've gone that far yet, but he has grown on me. I used to think he was a poor man's Kallis - ie totally focused on his own game like it's a net session, without ever adapting to what the team need. I actually liked how he was the first one to get stuck in against Pakistan, he just seemed like more of a team man. Now he looks like a superb player.
Re Ponting, he should have got a one match ban. He must be the biggest little bi.tch of a captain out there. Previously, I gave Smith the mantle after he moaned like a schoolgirl when Strauss wouldn't give him a runner for being tired.
