    The ATG Teams General arguing/discussing thread

    :) I like that. All time great sides exercise should never be taken too seriously. It is an impossible task and invariably unfair without putting in a couple of dozen caveats. But it is fun and the most common game that cricketers, ex-cricketers and cricket'd die-hard enthusiasts love to play.

    Aha. ������ So there you my friend. Yesterfay I was going through Hear, hear hear. Lend me your hear. And I just couldn’t stop grinning from ear to ear or ar least sporting a ‘beatific” smile right through. My old cook came in to pick up the tea cup and found I hadn’t touched it. He told my...

    Tendulkar is selfish

    It’s really interesting how this has become such a hot topic. Yesterday at a friends 70th birthday party, at a restaurant with big tv screens showing the game ar WC, the discussion soon diverted to “Tendulkar is so bloody selfish. It was stunning to see that almost everyone who was speaking...

    The disappointment of the 2019 Cricket World Cup being a 10 team World Cup

    So. To cut it short (you don’t believe I am going to do that do you 😜 ) the game will be played for money, by money, by rules made to maximise money, shown to the wide world for money, commented upon purely for money (in my fatherland at least) . . . Academic discussions?? Of course. Be our...

    The disappointment of the 2019 Cricket World Cup being a 10 team World Cup

    2. The way limited overs game is kind of taking over what cricket is all about, why not link admission to the Test Club with the team’s standing in the shorter versions of the game . . . Not far fetched you know. Money is all that talks in our beloved sport. - If your country has a population...

    The disappointment of the 2019 Cricket World Cup being a 10 team World Cup

    Very good point about the quality of the matches as far as close versus one sided games is concerned. However, without getting into the debate as to who should or who shouldn’t be at the WC let me make a few points if you please. 1. Test matches being a criteria for inclusion is dicey...

    No that's not it Mr Sambit Bal

    Eleven years ago, late Rajan Bala, one of the finest cricket journalists from India ever, wrote a small piece on Dhoni, wondering, even that long back -what was to him something peculiar about Dhoni. He did not identify but wondered aloud . . . Rajan Bala was not one of those to mince words or...

    India Top Two ODI batsmen

    The game is tilted very heavily in favor of the openers so it is not fair comparing all batsmen together.

    Gavaskar v Boycott

    It is such fun not just to go back, as I did as I was looking for that post on Gavaskar, its delightful to see the debates that went on for years, thereafter. This is the delight of discussing cricket. Unfortunately, not everyone comes equally well informed/prepared ;) Super stuff - brought...
