    Greatest 0's of All Time

    Anderson and Broad in this match pretty good, though they didn't get the desired result. https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/11718/scorecard/667901/england-vs-sri-lanka-2nd-investec-test-sri-lanka-tour-of-england-and-ireland-2014

    Replace one letter in a cricketer's name...

    It's a dull Monday morning at work, so I thought what the hell. May as well enliven some of your lives. Replace one letter in a cricketer's name to get something rude/funny/weird/vaguely insulting. I'll start with: Oaf du Plessis

    The lack of competitiveness of Test teams away from home

    Been thinking about this recently. SA are probably the best of the crop right now away from home, having won in Australia and NZ, but they did lose in England and India. I have little hope of India doing much more than winning/drawing a Test or two across their three big tours next year. Is...

    *Officlal* Commentary Praise Thread

    I liked that segment with Flintoff and Rob Keys about how it is harder to bowl yorkers consistently with the batsmen moving about the crease more these days.

    JP Duminy vs. Moeen Ali

    Who's better? Their stats are pretty comparable, except that Moeen gets bowled a lot more and picks up more wickets. But then Duminy doesn't get much of a chance since SA have a pace-heavy attack. I've always thought he is a very useful bowler.

    Dhoni steps down as India's LoI captain

    MS Dhoni steps down as limited-overs captain | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo Under his captaincy, India won the ODI WC, T20 WC, Champions Trophy, made an ODI WC semifinal, a semifinal and final in T20 WCs, won a couple of Asia Cups, and a tri-series down under. Will definitely go down as an ODI great...

    Most Test matches played without scoring a run?

    I just noticed a very interesting fact. Imran Khan is playing his 8th Test match for Pakistan, and is yet to score a Test run. Is this the biggest number of matches anyone has ever played without getting off the mark in Test cricket? His bowling stats are pretty decent though, why doesn't he...

    All-rounders XI vs. Specialists XI

    I picked two All-Time XI teams, one full of specialists and another with every player who can contribute in the other discipline. Struggled a bit to find openers who could bowl a bit. All-rounders XI : Sehwag Watson Kallis Steve Waugh Sobers Miller Sangakkara Imran Akram Pollock Hadlee...

    Being picked when you're ready..

    How much of an impact does this have on how we rate players? The examples of Cook and Trott (or Anderson and Tremlett) come to mind. Cook and Anderson had slowish starts to their Test careers and they have to keep up their top form for a fairly long time to push their averages to what we...
