    Is this the police team in Toronto? I think I played a match against them when I visited four years ago.

    That's similar to my story, except I wasn't the best on my HS team despite being the captain. Two became prolific league batsmen and three others played league cricket.

    Yeah the Toronto police team. Anyways, I am not the best either despite being the captain, I am the second best however. Our best player is a solid middle order batsman/part-time leg spinner who's been play club cricket since he was 7-8 and has played a bit in Trinidad as well.

    When you device a complex cricket ratings system and rate EVERY player that has scored either 500 runs or taken 40 wickets in the history of the game. Then you post your top 100s on cricketweb.

    Not sure what you're watching because "that" ball by Dale Steyn to Michael Vaughan is their at 1.05. Has to be just about the best ball I've ever seen. Maybe the Waqar yorker or the Wasim ball to Croft would come close.
