    Slow batsmen.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Due to ODI and now twenty20 cricket, over rates have been going up so much that there are now not a huge amount of draws anyway....
    Well not as many as 40 years ago...
    And it would'nt be as profitable so the Icc wouldnt cosider it

    I would prefer to watch a Twenty/20 match than a ten day test tbh. Draws will be unlikely though.

    I think 90 overs a day x five days is about right. Most games will have results, but there is always hope of a draw for a team if you apply yourselves. Assuming it is a proper pitch of course, and not the disgraceful flat tracks that crop up from time to time.

    Though tbf, you only wanted the extra day to make up for lost time. So really, bit of a pointless thing for me to do

    10-day test you got to be kidding right? I mean test matches nowadays are hardly going into the 5th day, so i think its hardly a wise idea to have a 10-day test.

    How can you pick a team of slow batsmen and leave out Geoff Boycott and Mark Richardson? Mind you I'd love to see them play 20-20! don't thi nk they'd like to play it though!
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...
    Arise Sir Beefy....
    Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble, Grubb...
