    To hook or not to hook?

    In light of England's dismissals from the 1st & 2nd Tests - best illustrated by this chart courtesy of another post: Workbook: Ashes wickets Taking into account the differing strategy and psychology of the 2 approaches, and the effect it has on both batsman and bowler - hooking or not hooking...

    MJ Clarke - numero uno Test batsman?

    The Channel 9 commentators have started saying he's the best again after his latest gig. Thousands of unsung Aussie mobile phone users have voted with their unbiased thumbs. Mark Nicholas cleverly went from saying "one of the best in the world" to "the best in the world" in the course of the 2nd...

    Graeme Smith the Test batsman

    Another super dooper, is XYZ an ATG thread... but interested to hear the consensus. Purely as a batsman, would Graeme Smith at this stage go down as an ATG. Perhaps one of the top 10 opening batsmen of all time may be one possible yardstick. Can one name 10 better ones? My thoughts - Depends...

    Is KP an ATG Test Batsman?

    With all the KP soap dramas, and now that there's no guarantee he will play another Test. Purely in terms of his batting career, would Pietersen go down as an ATG Test batsman? I am sitting on the fence on this one. As an entertainer, definitely. As a run scorer, possibly. FTR this is what...
