    It is not "the game of cricket", either - there are two games of cricket (well, two that we're talking here) - limited-over-cricket and First-Class-cricket. And they have many, many differences.
    They are different tactically, but the actual playing of the game itself is the same (apart from the odd rule difference like short balls etc)..you need to the same things right..thats why both forms are still both called 'cricket'

    Talent is ability, skill.
    Simple as.

    And you also need lots of different things right.
    The odd rule difference (there are actually a few) makes a hell of a difference.

    Talent is talent and remains talent however the application of that talent is different in the two forms of the game . Some can make the change in applying themselevs effectively between the shorter version and the longer whereas others fail.

    No, there are certain talents that are required for the limited-overs game, and certain ones for the First-Class game.
    Some have both, some have one and not the other.

    Talent = the ability to do something.
    For instance - to play a form of cricket.

    Yeah I thought pakistan could have been a much better side they are now,If they would have been consistent With the team that you have mentioned.what a talented team The pakistani was back in the 2000,With young rich talented youngsters like razzaq and afrid and with so much stroke play saeed anwar amir soahil and inzimam ul ha,then great bowling attack,wasim akram,waqar younis,shoaib akhtar,That was the reason why india couldnt beat them back then,There was so much talent That they would have had a chance winning againts australia,
    they played australia during that period and lost 3 tests and only won one out of 6 odi's.

    No, one or two things are the same.
    But there are all sorts of things that are different.

    but those one or 2 things make up probably the most important aspects of the game

    No, they just make-up the things that if you don't have them you're no use at all.

    This is probably the new record for going on a tangent - you folks didn't even wait for the fifth post.
