    2019 xi

    Not quite the end of the year, and a few series to go until 2019 is done, but who are the front runners for team of the year? The make up should change in the next couple of months, but let's get the ball rolling. Ignoring Sharma for now, despite his impressive efforts. Imagine he will be in my...

    Just how mauve is India's cricket nocturnalism?

    They're noisy for when we sleep. Their sounds are heard worldwide, and are much respected. But on the topic of Indian crickets, a lot of them talk utter nonsense.

    Is petworking against ferret?

    They say to get a ferret it's who you know matters most. It's a present day fact, but is it ethical? To me petworking is a product of present day competitive zoos. Canadians and people with ferrets have it hard.

    World Cup Uniforms

    England, Afgahnistan and Sri Lanka with decent kits. The rest? Bland AF. South Africa looks like they didn't have time to design a kit and took one of Pakistan's old ones, and Pakistan returned in kind by adopting something more South African. West Indies and India seem to have had the same...

    From the Pavilion

    Anyone still playing? Might be neat to get a friendly league going if we have enough. In other news, threw the virtual cricket bat at the dressing room door after starting today first ahead on RR only to finish second because of run rate, as team that was second had a final round match against...

    AB vs AB

    Let's settle this once and for all. Expecting burgey to weigh in heavily here. It's tough to judge because AB is still playing, and AB has been retired for quite some time now, and there's a chance AB's career might have a downturn - or hit even loftier heights. AB is sublime in all formats...

    Ramnaresh Sarwan v Simon Katich v Paul Collingwood vs Ashwell Prince

    A variety of players, one supremely talented who underachieved, and then some gritty, nuggetty, at times unorthodox, but effective players who did a job for their team. Katich with the highest average, came back great guns as opener and even at his 'elderly' age, had a career cut short due to...

    World Rankings 'Red' vs 'Blue'

    Trying to think of a novel way of coming up with random Best XIs to vs each other in some totally unrealistic scenario that could be fair and balanced in some way. Using the team world rankings as a guide, the challenge is to make a team from nations in a certain ranking position. So Team Red...

    Daft or highly unlikely ideas you want to see in a one off test

    6 innings (3 innings each) timeless test. Compulsory bowling. Before you can get on with your regular spells, everyone in the side (either including or excluding the keeper) have to bowl 1 over. 22/44 player match, 11 per innings. Choose who bats and bowls when, wisely. Each bowler gets their...

    Over by 30 XI

    Doing a Wikipedia-esque jump through Cricinfo profiles of past players, was reading up on Shane Lee whom I had thought was older than he was when he finished his playing career - but was actually just 29. Made me think, given the endless amount of 'best of XI' threads of late, what would be the...

    Who is/was the ultimate, most proficient and masterful medium-paced-dibbly-dobbler?

    The Jacob Oram thread got me thinking on dibbly-dobblers (not that big Jake was that...) whose area of excellence really only seems to exist in ODI cricket due to the middle innings strangle or going for a partnership breaker because everyone else is getting smacked about. Thinking about it, as...
