    Old Aussie cricket grounds-do you miss them?

    MCG-It is still similar to what it is now, if you look at google images, there used to be a massive 3 tier stand with boxes up the top and right opposite another 3 tier stand with the scoreboard, absolute colosseum even back then. The stands have evolved a lot. I'm sure there used to a huge one...

    Australia's tactics against India

    I watched the 05 series, in what test was this employed by Vaughan? It seemed like 3 slips and a gully when Flintoff, Jones, Harminson was bowling.

    Australia's tactics against India

    Then how would they have got wickets? Playing too aggressively to make false shot to get wickets was also their tactic? They knew they had to get 10 wickets, mainly 7 batsman.

    Ricky Ponting's mindset before 03 WC Final

    Ponting was a determined, driven, feisty character. That day he just wanted to hit everything out the park when he saw his side having 12 overs left with 2 wickets in hand. He just went berserk. Lara in full flow was grace, artistic, he could also get aggressive and you better hope you got Lara...

    Ricky Ponting's mindset before 03 WC Final

    Vs Eng-Bevan Vs Pak-Symonds Vs NZ-Bevan Vs Kenya Vs Sri L-Symonds All batting order collapses, only 1 player in each of those games in the top 7 stepped up. Ponting was so confident even when the Indian batsman were playing well, in touch. He must've felt his pace bowlers would be too good for...

    Which Indian players were unlucky not be given a consistent chance?

    Kambli was given a decent run, he was left out I think in 97-99. He made a comeback for 2 series in 2000, but did not take the opportunity and side-lined for the 1999 world cup.

    Which Indian players were unlucky not be given a consistent chance?

    You could also ask why did India despite the number of people and teams associated, had so many duds playing for that 1998-2002 period.
