    Who produced who? The chicken or the egg? Although I will say that Lillee made fast bowling more popular.

    Right now we are in a situation with three or four semi-good teams who have all cancelled each other out in some ways. India are the pick but hardly dominant. Australia are on the dole. England struggle with spinners and selection. South Africa look a bit dodgy judging by today. Pakistan are as mercurial as ever. It seems as a decent time as many really to get a good series

    People really take this place seriously. Likewise I'm not sure why, but just live and let live

    I mean being a pedantic asshole who likes pointing out when people are wrong comes quite naturally to me. If I put thought and effort into a post you'll get that wall of text I made about Blocky

    Its all good we all make mistakes.

    Those are more of individuals. Think Aust started going around 4 rpo in in Waugh era as a whole lineup which sort of rubbed on to other teams to be more aggressive.

    I'm pleasantly surprised to see you're self-aware enough to realise you're a massive flog. That's progress. Good for you.

    Any successful team will get other teams to go looking for certain things that those teams had. I mean, the same great Aussie side went on a 10 year hunt to find "their" Flintoff post the 2005 Ashes. And that was just one series. I think that Aussie team's real legacy was Gilchrist and the way they forever reinvented what a wicket keeper is expected to do in a test side. Everything else were things that others teams were doing as well and none of them have become basically a necessity as the keeper batsman at 7 today has become.
