    wtf, is it usual these days for Cricinfo to list the precise street someone was born in and the precise burial place?

    In taking my place at the wicket, I almost felt as if taking my ground in a duel... and my terrors were so much increased by the mock pity and sympathy of Hammond, Beldham, and others round the wicket, that when this mighty bowler, this Jupiter tonas, hurled his bolt at me, I shut my eyes in the intensity of my panic, and mechanically gave a random desperate blow, which, to my utter astonishment, was followed by a loud cry all over the ring of 'run, run'.

    Playwright Lord Frederick Reynolds on facing Harris.
    It appears that English batting hasn't changed much in more than 200 years.

    Blogs: Kartikeya Date: Which batsmen thrive against the best bowlers? | Cricket Blogs | ESPN Cricinfo

    I thought that the above study which compares all the batsman who have scored more than 10000 runs was interesting. That Tendulkar and Lara have set the pace is hardly surprising, but Sangakkara has proven himself to be not far off those two greats.

    Kallis and Dravidian were somewhat disappointing, while Jayawardene is not a patch on his compatriot.

    That analysis definitely gave my boy Lara his due. For all the people who cry about his flawed technique, flat track runs, and bla bla bla, the guy very rarely came up against dire attacks (unlike many of his contemporaries). Consider this, in his 131 test career Lara only played Zim/Bang 4 times (2x each). Imagine if he had played as many tests as the likes of .......that's all I'll say fo rnow.
    Cause Slifer said so.........!!!!

    What is the best team you can make within the constraints of the recent cricket budget draft. Here are the rules:

    500 Test caps
    30000 Test runs
    1000 Test wickets.


    To allow some flexibilityy and variation between teams in any round of the draft, prior to making your pick, you may elect to 'exchange' 100 wickets for 3000 runs or vice versa.
    So you may adjust your budget to 27000 runs and 1100 wickets or 33000 runs and 900 wickets.
    This may only be done once and is irreversible.

    I apologise in advance if this ends up horribly. As I said it's a random idea and I've not put masses of thought into whether the budgets work or not but they should be roughly ok.
    Half a team of Warwick Armstrongs and half a team of Trevor Goddards gets you pretty close.

    Register interest below as usual.
    No Bradman. 18 hour pick limit.
    Ignore the flexibility clause. So you have to manage in the original budget limits.

    11. Bill O'Reilly

    Now the team sneaks under the budget for Tests and Wickets.
    Barry Richards in for Sutcliffe, Barnes in for Procter. Will see if I can upgrade the Worrell spot.

    With Headley and Pollock, team looses very little from normal ATG batting lineup.
