If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too: If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master; If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim, If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same: If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss: If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much: If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
Conconclusion? We wait and see for there's many a slip twixt cup and lip
As many around here know i've been one of Bishy's biggest fans since he first broke through, and i wasn't surprised in the slightest that he won the icc award after the great start he had, the problem he had though was he was just too basic, he'd mainly stick to the legbreaks and would bowl five decent balls followed by a long-hop each over and would go for runs, and it's a problem that he never addressed during his time in the side,
I also think he's been a little unlucky, if he was playing for South Africa he'd still be in the side today and imo he's better than Tahir, but the fact is he's playing in a period where this wonderful talent named Sunil Narine has come along, and in this game it only takes a day to become yesterdays man,
Personally i can't see Bishy getting back in the WI side for now, i think Sunny's gonna go from strength to strength as the years go on and in a year or two will be at Ajmal's level, i also think Permaul is ahead of him now too, a yute who is growing with each game he plays,
But never the less i wish Bishy well, the wi t20 side plays two spinners so if he learns to cut out the long-hops and keeps it more tight then perhaps that would be a path back into international cricket for him.
