    Easy A

    Inspired by a recent captain who didn't bowl and didn't bat. He did write an open letter, but that was probably ghostwritten by his team-mates, much like the tournament win. Instances of captains with easiest routes to lifting a major trophy?

    How did Boxes Effect the Dynamics Between Fast Bowlers and Batsman?

    There is an old cricket joke: the first box was used in cricket in 1874 and the first cricket helmet was used in 1974 – it took men 100 years to realise that their head was also important. This pretty much sums up the box. Considering only the Test cricket fast men – and subjectively ignoring...

    Cricketweb decides the best fielder ever

    Another contest. I'm stealing your thunder, mr_mister :cool: Not meant to be a strict taxonomical exercise*, so we're not going to moan about slip fielders and outfielders sharing the field here (apologies for the low quality pun). 10 nominations per person. Players nominated thrice get in. 32...

    Anyone else just hate NZ culture?

    For some reason the entire team has adopted haka culture.. nothing makes me cringe more than seeing non-Maoris dance and prance like Maoris but now they ALL do it... even the professional-looking guys on TV, the cops.. all of them are wannabe natives. They are also the most arrogant and biased...

    Big Orange attempt to take control of Catches

    News filtering in that the orange bourgeoisie has it's proponents who demand exclusivity to catches in the crowd :-O. This may be the end of spectator gaiety as we know it.

    Sum greater than the parts

    The current Indian team has no player from Rajasthan, the domestic champions two years running. What are other instances of no player from the domestic champions being considered good enough to represent their country at the time?

    Scorecard Draft III

    For those already familiar with the scorecard draft format, it should be noted that this edition won't be exactly the same format. It'll be different in that each participant picks his next player from his own last scorecard, rather than the scorecard of the participant who picked before him...

    Petition to bring Air Guitar smiley on board

    I believe that the posting experience on Cricketweb would be greatly enhanced by the addition of the Air Guitar smiley to the existing default list of smilies. The Air Guitar smiley would fill a void in music related threads, player and poster appreciation situations, tour match threads and as...

    Should Atul Sharma make a comeback???

    A very sad state of affairs in SA. World cricket needs him because Atul Sharma is probably my favorite ever Indian cricketer and along with Rambo probably the most exciting manly man I have ever seen. As much as SS is a spinner fanboy, I am a bowling fan-boy. I would like to see Atul make a...
