00s worth considering? Advent of Twenty20, more money in the game than ever, squad rotation, centrally contracted players and a shift away from domestic cricket for the top players before a shift towards IPL etc?
"It was an easy decision to sign. I could have gone elsewhere, I had calls, but it never entered my mind it's not about the money."
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
This'll sound a bit dumb, but bear with me...
I'm noticing a trend in society for a return to older, simpler things. Like hipster (and now other) chicks being in knitting/book clubs. People keeping chooks in backyards and growing vegies. Questioning rampant consumerism etc etc.
Just wondering if we'll see a bit of a revival of test cricket appreciation (as opposed to all the bull**** that goes along with the IPL etc). People realising that there's a lot to be appreciated there, in the same way that knitting and homegrown stuff can be pretty satisfying.
Maybe even a return to players wearing full whites with nothing on them apart from their country's badge.
One could only hope...

Reckon the 00s is a bit underrated. Will be interesting to see how we look back on it in 20 years time.
