    As disappointing as the present Indian tour is turning out to be anyone who has been following the functioning of Australian cricket over the last 5-6 years knows, that results like these are inevitable and its something that the players can't really be blamed for. When the Argus repot was made...

    Happy with your current national side? (ODIs)

    Just felt a thread like this would be a good platform to discuss the state of one's national side and the changes that should be made, and with a eye on 2011 World Cup, would be interesting to see who are the players that most of the posters would like to see play through to the 2011 World Cup...

    ICC allows batting team to choose one Powerplay

    ICC's new playing conditions which takes effect from October 1. Good move imo, but what's wrong with the ICC why can't they implement all these rules in one go rather than tinkering with the game after every month or two.

    Road to IPL 2009.

    Gilchrist to lead Deccan Chargers. So the Deccan Chargers seem to be really keen about turning things around after their dismal showing during the last IPL season and they are revamping the whole set-up of their team, i personally think its a good move to hand the leadership to Gilly, so hope...

    Should the role of a cricket coach change?

    Obviously i was thinking about this for sometime now, i was just wondering whether a cricket coach should be given more power and liberty like a soccer manager. It would be interesting if a man is picked as coach of a side and then he is given a free hand to pick the players he wants in the team...

    Who should be Australia's next wicket-keeper?

    I think atm the fight for the spot is pretty much between Ronchi and Haddin, though Gilly is still pretty much there but he is nearing retirement with every passing game so no matter whenever he retires who do you guys think is the best man to take the gloves from Gilly.
