Murali clone flown into help Kiwis says report

By Channaka de Silva (

The visiting New Zealand team has flown down a teenager from England to Colombo to help the team’s preparations because the youngster “apparently can bowl Muralitharan's famed doosra with the same worst action ever to pass muster” according to a report in New Zealand media.

New Zealand’s ‘Dominion Post’ revealed that an unheard-of 19-year-old named Maurice Holmes who is a Kent 2nd XI bowler had been called in to help Kiwis combat the threat of Muttiah Muralitharan and Ajantha Mendis in the upcoming Test series which begins in Galle on August 18.

Holmes had been discovered by the New Zealand team when he bowled to the New Zealanders at the nets during the Twenty20 World Cup in England in June.

New Zealand Cricket's General Manager, Geoff Allott had said skipper Daniel Vettori felt he could be helpful to their cause in Sri Lanka.

"The guys were blown away by how close he was to Murali and there are very few people who can do that so we thought, ‘why not’," Allott said.

"The proof will be in the pudding of course but we viewed it as worthwhile. He can bowl the doosra and we have to look at ways of improving."

Allott had described the cost of the exercise as "really nothing more than a return airfare".

"The thing is Saqlain Mushtaq is always working with the batters and bowlers. He is a busy man, so Maurice is able to do a lot of the grunt work." Allott had said.

Allott said the feedback from the New Zealand players about Holmes had been very positive.

Holmes, who is on a gap year between secondary school and college, left the New Zealand camp yesterday to return to England.

Holmes had said he never initially studied Muralitharan's technique. "I never knew he bowled like that, it just felt normal for me."

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

What is RSS?

RSS logo

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". Many people describe it as a "news feed" that you subscribe to. It is a technology that is being used by millions of web users around the world to keep track of their favorite websites.

Earlier days we had to "bookmark" websites in our browser and manually return to them on a regular basis to see what had been added and updated.

Following are some problems or lack of performance in bookmarking. But still we bookmark web sites since we are not used to RSS yet.

  • The web surfer had to do all the work, visit the site and check for updates.
  • More complicated when you are trying to track many websites at once
  • If you forgot to check your bookmarks, you would miss the updates.
  • On the other hand, your visits to the web sites that don't update very often are in vain.

Nowadays people are so busy, Cannot afford much time on checking updates and all. So this led people to think of a way to bring the updates from the sites to them rather than checking the sites manually. This is what RSS does for us.

RSS is a technology that provides you with a method of getting updates sent to you for you to read at leisure. It saves your time and helps you to get the information you want. I just started with feeding and it seems quite easy. But still I couldn't give up bookmarking either. Read further and get familiar with RSS today.

How to use RSS?

You need a RSS Feed Reader. RSS Reader is, to which you get the updates fromthe websites you subscribed so that you can read them. There are many feed readers, you can start with Google Reader and Bloglines. Both are free and easy to use and work a little like email. The best way to learn how to use either Google Reader or Bloglines is, simply subscribe to some feeds and give it a go. Check the dropdown list on the right menu for more readers.

There are two places to look for a site's feed:

1. On the Site
2. In Your Browser

On Site Subscription

You may have noticed a lot of little buttons and widgets appearing on web sites and blogs. Little orange buttons, links called RSS, XML, ATOM and many more.

They come in all shapes and sizes. Here are a few you might have seen:

common RSS feeds
There are plenty more and any of these buttons or anything like them it means that the site you are viewing almost certainly has a feed that you can subscribe to.

Browser Subscription

Many internet browsers now have the ability to find and subscribe to RSS feeds built right into them. When you visit a site and if you see an orange icon in the right hand side of address bar it means that website has an RSS feed.

This is how it looks when you visit using Firefox:

RSS icon in address bar

By clicking the orange icon that you see in the address bar you can easily subscribe to get updates from wickeys blog.

Once you have subscribed to a few feeds you will begin to see unread items in your Feed Reader and you can start reading.

A short story with a beautiful message.....

father and daughter

Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. Father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter, "Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river."

The little girl said, "No, Dad. You hold my hand."

"What's the difference?" Asked the puzzled father.

"There's a big difference", replied the little girl.

"If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go.

But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens,
you will never let my hand go."

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond.

So hold the hand of the person who loves you rather than expecting them to hold yours...
