    Ok, this is a hypothetical one- mix and match, throw them all in i dont care but limit your list to 5 bowlers tops.. Mine would be as follows: Malcolm Marshall : IMO, best fast bowler ever. Period. Deceptive pace, brilliant cricketing brain and allround effectivenes everywhere Wasim Akram ...

    Alltime ODI XI

    What would be your's ? This would be mine: Tendulkar < no reason needed> Gillchrist < there are openers who've scored more than him but his decent average-35-ish, combined with run-a-ball strike rate and wicketkeeping ability makes him a perfect candidate with team balance in mind> Viv...

    Threat to cricket or is it 'doing the right thing' ?

    The Indian government has decieded to share broadcast of all cricket matches involving India with non-cable channels as well as cable channels. Essentially, this ( from what i understand) means no more 'exclusive rights' for any particular channel showing Indian cricket and all Indian cricket...

    Batsmen and the chase

    Interesting thing i noticed after Punter's excellent innings last night : Batsmen choke under pressure. In 4th innings situations, when the circumstances demand that one batsman stands up and gets counted, they almost always invariably stuffs up ( infact, i cannot remember a batsman off the top...

    Tardy over rates in the Ashes

    Will either side get fined or will the umpires, as usual, turn a blind eye ? In the first test, England and Australia were both adrift of the over rate. Didnt follow the second test, so dont know. In this test so far, OZ had to use 30 extra minutes and still came an over short ( scheduled close...

    Lords Pitch

    Is anyone gonna slam this Lord's pitch ? I remember how when oh-so-many wickets fell in Mumbai not too long ago, every tom,**** and harry were condemning the pitch.........this pitch has seen 17 wickets fall on day1 with uneven bounce and the ball keeping low pretty frequently.......So, are we...

    Lara omitted from the squad for PAK series

    His name is not on the list......official word is he is being 'rested'. But since i visit CC.com, the 'inside word' ( a lot of them there are reporters and/or know some of the players personally) is that Dwight Yorke has a week or so to burn before his new contract in Australia starts and since...

    The man who revolutionised cricket

    An excellent read about the ultimate cricketing businessman. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jagmohan Dalmiya was in the news this week, and to everyone's surprise it was about a sports award he had won. The IJHS had done its...

    Rohan Bholalall Kanhai

    Saw a few cricket videos of this guy....from AUS 1960/61 series, England 1966 and 1973.... Forget Viv, Sachin,Lara, Gillchrist, Sehwag,Chappell etc....this guy is the most scintillating strokeplayer i've ever seen.

    An Analysis of McGrath

    This is my sequel to Sehwag's analysis ( maybe i should analyse all players piece by piece but then i would fail all my courses). because i feel that it has to be addressed. When i first laid eyes on McGrath, it was 1994 i think involving OZ and RSA in RSA... i was but 13 years old then and...

    Why is Sehwag so good: My analysis

    Ok since i am an insomniac sucking on a fag, i decieded to write a piece on why i think Sehwag is so successful. People raise doubts about him due to his non-existant footwork(not true really and i will explain why) and many write him off as a slogger.Others who are a bit more cognizant of...
