    Cricket Web Content - Feedback

    Climbing mountains, making sacrifices and playing for India

    I am starting this thread for those who write articles for CW to ask for feedback from the CC visitors. I am sure James and his team are working on a more appropriate way of achieving the same but till then this will have to do.

    I am starting with posting my last one, up today.

    Climbing mountains, making sacrifices and playing for India is the original title of the article. So dont go looking for it by this title .

    It is put up as. Playing for India-Sourav Ganguly

    Feedback welcome.

    I will be grateful if in the feedback we use moderate language please. Not because it cant be ignored all together if it is not but because it would be good to have the writers responding to the fedback if they wish and that is much more healthy (for want of a better word) if they are responding to feedback, even if negative, which refrains from unnecessarily aggresive language

    Great Article and I do agree with the way media has been reporting Gang's 10,000 runs has been really pathetic. You have got some facts wrong about Gangs though. Gangs did give up his spot to Sehwag during the India/Eng ODI series in India but went back to his opening position in the next tour of WI and Natwest Series and ICC KO trophy in England.

    One startling fact is that except one game (in NW series in Eng)India ended up winning every match Gangs opened with Sehwag. Even Sachin was fairly successful in WI & NW series. It was only in ICC KO trophy where Sachin failed in couple of games (India won though). But Indian media was not satisfied with India's win, more than the win they wanted Sachin to Score so that they can continue with their hero worship.

    It's worth mentioning that when Gangs Opened the innings with Sehwag, not Only India won almost all the games, but Sachin was scoring @ 53.7 runs per inning.

    Feedback welcome.
    It was so scathing the skin on my face started to peel as I read it.

    Ganguly probably feels unfairly victimized in recent times (he hasn't been), and maybe his overblown celebrations were out of a misguided sense of vindication.

    Very nicely written.

    You know it makes sense.

    Went through the main players and some of the new faces, was interesting. Would have liked to know how many games and maybe some predictions. Also any milestones coming up for players. Where a win would place either side in the W/Rs, a little more about the political situation would have been of interest as well.

    Only for 2005 actually, these are the winners thus far:

    January = Matthew Hoggard
    February = Kevin Pietersen
    March = Younis Khan
    April = Brian Lara
    May = Boeta Dippenaar
    June = Mohammad Ashraful
    July = Glenn McGrath

    No it isn't voted on, comes down to what the writer thinks although personally I have't disagreed with one.

    Yes a player can win again and again.

    To be honest, just as i was about to submit it, i was informed that the team had been named. Thus all my predictions/ assumptions were scrapped! It sort of wrecked my sense of opinion.. but thanks for the feedback.

    I think the political situation has been done to death, and i'm sure people would rather just see the cricket side of the tour. Just my opinion though. Cheers mate.

    Match Report

    Neil Pickup on England's amazing near loss !!

    Extract :
    Uncertainty, delight, frustration, disbelief, incredulity, shock, amusement, relief, concern, positivity, wonder, despair, hope, expectation, awe, respect, intensity, reflection, edge, fear, amazement, petrification, horror, despair, ecstasy.

    A chronology of an English supporter's emotion throughout the three-and-a-half days of the Second Ashes Test at Edgbaston. More than enough emotion for an entire series, let alone a single match......

    Fantastic article from Mr. Pickup really captured the moment of that last catch.
    Or something.
