    He is a class prospect although his averages havent been as high as they seem to be. Hope he can beat Barney later, would be great victory.
    Yea that's cus he's inconsistant during games, but when he gets in the zone he is immense.

    PDC darts are shown on Sky Sports, they usually show 5 to 6 tournaments per year.

    I prefer the PDC, though I follow the BDO World Championship as well.

    As for people moving from BDO and become better at PDC, those players (eg Painter) have gained experience, and if you saw the match he played against Taylor in the final a few years ago you can't deny the sheer quality.

    I really want Klaasan to win the match, but in another I want Barney and Taylor to have another match too, I reckon Taylor would murder him again.

    Yer I want Klaasen to win the match, just because of his age really. Barney is my favourite darts player by far, so its a win-win situation for me 6pm tonight i'll be on my sofa watching it

    Everyone has a bad patch. It just doesn't last for 3 years.

    Dravid opening has worked out, but you can't say for certainity a specialist opener wouldn't have done just as well, especially as if India are looking to be no. 1, short term fixes like this won't do.

    Yuvraj and Kaif are alternatives and are better. Who else do you drop?

    Sehwag, Dravid, Tendulkar, Laxman and Yuvraj are producing the goods. The only spot left open is opening. Unless Ganguly opens, which given his weakness against the short ball is unlikely, he doesn't fit in the team balance.
    Agreed. The only way Ganguly would be able to fit in with the rest of the team would be if he decided to keep wicket!

    Seems people are just jealous of him and the whole of india (who actually watch him play regularly unlike most people here just making general comments) realise how good he still is which is why there have been protests for the way hes been treated. Plus he'd be more consistant than Kaif and even Yuvraj. Hes gona be a big success this series..watch this space..

    Maybe he is, maybe he isn't. The thing is though that Ganguly was never that good a test player in the first place. Plus, I'd rather have a specialist opener in the team than Ganguly - I wouldn't risk Dravid to the new ball - he's too invaluable to the team. Also, India are looking to the future. Ganguly is 33, Dravid and Tendulkar are 32, Kumble is 34, etc - they need to start looking to their future squad as opposed to having to make some hasty changes in a few years when the best members of the current squad end their tenure with the team, and that would be a better reason for including Yuvraj in the team.

    WOOOo! How good was Klaasen during that 7 leg streak! How many 180s did he get in total?

    When Klaasen was on fire he was unstoppable, incredible stuff!
    Wicked final!

    Well getting bat on ball would be a start...

    The only protests have been in Kolkotta. But then thats politics and we'll leave the discussion to cricket.

    Great match, great darts. Wasnt particually great scoring but the crucial darts landed at the crucial times. Barney threw it away at 5-5 2-2 but all credit to Klassen
