    Trying to check county scores on cricinfo's mobile site and having to find your way through "domestic scores" but IPL scores are there on the front page under "international".

    The latest update to the app (couple of months back) removed so many problems. Love it now.

    Whilst World Cricket League matches between national teams, granted its associates but still, are buried in 'others.'

    AB de Villiers topping the test batting rankings. Spare me. Greatest downhill skier since La Bomba Tomba.

    Everything shastri says but especially "Paaaaarrrrrfully struck". Makes me want to get an ear enema.

    Losing captains saying they were 15-20 runs short

    Rohit Sharma saying the ball wasn't coming on to the bat

    Bhogle being acclaimed by my friends as a great commentator

    Every fifty/hundred scored by a captain being called a "captain's innings". Well technically it is, but you know what I mean.

    Spinners in ODI cricket

    Reaction shot of random Indian girl stunned at an Indian wicket falling

    Blokes who try to be hip by saying Gavaskar or Dravid are better than Tendulkar

    ! Yes. So brutal.

    The other look is when the opposition need like 50 off 12 balls and hit a six, and every random Indian girl has the look like their mum just died, such is their concern about losing the match.

    Having said that, having Ishant Sharma in your team will do that to you I guess.

    Cricket matches: quantity does not always equal quality.
    Look, I haven't read through all the 100+ pages of this thread, but somebody may of already posted this gem.

    Wicket Keepers who are good batsman being classed as all rounders

    Being a good batsman is a prerequisite of being a wicket keeper these days.. I've no idea why being able to bat turns a keeper into an all-rounder..
