    Garner / Pollock / McGrath / Hadlee

    Very similar bowlers in ODI matches. What is striking is that all four of these bowlers were extremely accurate. I tries to adjust the averages and strike rates in relation to the peers. Pollock has most wickets, Garner has the best average, Hadlee has the best ER. Who would have been the best?

    How good is Mujeeb ur Rahman?

    When Afghanisthan is discussed, Rashid Khan gets the most attention. However, in his shadows we see a crafty off spinner, Mujeeb ur Rahman. 31 T20 wickets @ 15.4 at sub 6 ER, 70 ODi wickets @22 with a SR of 3.96, this guys is neck and neck with Rashid Khan. Very consistent across matches, few...

    Marvan Atapattu vs Mike Atherton

    Both debuted very close to each other, ended very close too. Played very similar number of matches, and averages are similar too. Both were stylish opening batsmen, and both were legspinners picking up 1 and 2 wickets in test matches. Who would you think had the better career ? Marvan Atapattu...

    Cricketers who played against both father and son

    Going through an old youtube clip of Pakistan playing Newzwaland in 1985, where Lance Cairns was floored by Wasim Akram, I realized he played both against father (Lance) and son (Chris). By top of the head I could think that Javed Miandad, Arjuna Ranatunga and Aravinda de Silva should have done...

    Muralitharan big spin

    I was referring to a ball that Murali produced to get rid of Sadagopan Ramesh that was an absolute peach, even better than the one against Butcher. Yes peeps, I have got it. It is the last dismissal of the reel. Ball to pitch half a foot out side off (bowling round the wicket) and to take the...

    Part timers with beautiful actions: Sehwag vs Mark Waugh vs Aravinda vs Hooper

    These guys were extremely attacking batsmen. Entertainers, and because of it thrown many innings away. They had their share of technical weaknesses, but on song, they made Tendulkars and Laras look defensive. This is however about their bowling. All four are part timers, and off break bowlers...

    Best ever Associate bowler

    Looking at the Afghan bowling lineup gives me goosebumps. Hamid Hasan ambles and delivers at 145k. Dawlat Zadran is smooth and hits 145k regularly. The 17 year old spinner, Rishad Khan, bows top-spinners and googlies more than leggies and carries a lot of mystery. Who do you think the best...
