    The stats do not do him justice!

    People, Which cricketers that you've seen either live or footage of (surely this subject requires you have seen them! lol) have records which do not do justice to how good they really were/are? I'll do a couple of my lifetime and wait for others to post Gower and Viv Richards' names. Lol...

    Chris Woakes.

    Hey guys/gals, What's your thoughts on Chris Woakes? He took out the top 6 of a West Indies team which included test match certainties like Sarwan, Chanderpaul, Ramdin & Nash as well as Simmons who may bat @ No. 4. He's only 20 and I'm normally cautious when involving talented young players...

    Lasith Malinga.

    Guys/gals, What's your opinion on Lasith Malinga? He is 1 of my favourite bowlers of the moment and he isn't bowling anywhere near as fast (around 135-140kph/84-87mph) as he can (150kph/93mph+). He has 1 of the best slower balls in the game IMO, extremely hard to pick with that unorthodox low...
