    Ewen Chatfield

    Ewen Chatfield is rated as one of the top ODI bowlers of all time in so many ratings while he is never spoken about in CW in any discussion. Any reason why? Is he under-rated due to Hadlee taking all the mindshare?

    Test record-breakers draft

    1. The record should be at an international level and not at a country level Eg. batsman to score most runs in SENA is an acceptable record but most runs in SENA by an Indian batsman is not acceptable since it then becomes country level. 2. He cannot be second best or third best. The person...

    Retirement thread

    Natural talent

    A doubt in my mind on all sports including cricket. There are so many sons of sportspersons who succeed in the same sport. Is it because of natural talent or since they have better access to facilities and coaching? Is natural talent real?

    Are the Aussies getting back to the attitude era?

    Are the Aussies getting back to their attitude era of 1990s where they dominated and crushed every single opponent? Or is this WC win a flash in the pan and teams will continue to equally compete like the last few years?

    2015 World Cup compared to other World Cups

    How do you guys think that the teams in 2015 WC stack against the teams of previous World cups? To me, this looks the weakest of all. There is no team that we can say as very strong and has very few legends/reputed/world class ODI batsmen and bowlers compared to the previous cups. Few current...
