    Pommie Mbangwa

    Ajit Agarkar vs Sreesanth in Limited Overs

    Bearing in mind that this comparison is in Limited Overs Cricket only (ODI's and Twenty20's), who would you rather have as a bowler in your squad. Ajit Agarkar gets a lot of stick on this board, for test matches this is deserved. But he's been a leading ODI bowler for India over many years...

    Brett Lee - Future Australian Captain?

    With all the fiasco surrounding Australia's spirit of cricket and the Australian captaincy, I couldn't help but think of Brett Lee being a brilliant ambassador for Australian Cricket. He plays the game really hard, but the man is always fair. All the talk is around Michael Clarke taking over...
