    Burgey, you taking out your frustration that Julie Bishop is voting against a war crimes inquiry into Sri Lanka?

    Wouldn't surprise me. She's as big a non-event as a Sri Lankan tour of Australia.

Yes I'm talking about the 900 game.
    900 game was played at RPS. Pls update the knowledge!

    To most reasonable cricketing people the one format that matters over anything else is Tests.

    Erm, the crease is 4 feet from the stumps. If (as you claim) you spent a long period of time 4 feet from him when batting I can only assume you are either a) a stump or b) have been hit in the head by a cricket ball repeatedly from a very short range...

    Actually on reading your posts, b) does seem more likely.

    I am trying to think what Countries like New Zealand and South Africa have achieved after three decades of cricket and how many ATG players they have produced. Additionally, what England had done during 1980-2000 period as a team. England was close to minnows during that time.

    most countries have been poor in their first 3 decades in the sport. india only really became relatively competitive after what 90 years in the sport?

    plus most countries who play the sport arent known for their athletics skills and there are only 10 countries who even play the sport regularly. being the best cricket nation is like being the tallest midget.

    Nup I see cricket similar to countries that have higher standards of living. Hardly universal but the ideal.

    yeah fair enough bro.


    but as far as the second post in the thread is concerned, there is no need to get on ur high horse so much just because one country has failed to win in another country. didnt australia themselves go like 30+ years without winning in india or something?

    He's just on the wind up. Classic stuff though. To think my ambivalence toward T20 kept me away from this thread until I stumbled into it for a reason I can't remember.

    As for Oz doing poorly in India it has to be set against the context of us not playing their all that often until recently. I don't mind the conditions in the subcon. Don't care that they are slow turners. Just another set of conditions to master which adds to the game's variety and character. Just as valid as hard fast conditions here and SA. Though I admit beating Saffy and the Poms is ideal from an Aussie fan's pov.
