    Ricky Ponting versus himself

    Because I have deemed it necessary to take this idea to its conclusion. Let us presume that prime Ricky Ponting was facing the medium-pacer trundling of Ricky Ponting, with 10 other Ricky Pontings in the field (including a Ricky Ponting wicketkeeper), and Ricky Ponting set fields. How long would...

    Charl Langevelt: Exactly how good was he?

    He had a decent purple patch in the mid noughties, would probably have had more than 6 test matches were transformation targets not such a sensitive hot button issue. Possibly one of the more effective death bowlers of his day. Where do you rate him.

    So, Lungi Ngidi has recently called for the Proteas to express support for BLM and then Boeta Dippenaar, together with several other former Proteas responded saying All Lives Matter. Now there seems to be a growing split between white and non-white Proteas on the issue with lots of Black and...

    Perverse Delight thread

    This thread is all, or mostly about the schadenfreude we should come clean on feeling when some sports team gets a terrible result.

    Your gutsy calls for 2020

    Aside from the hindsight and foresight puns this 12 upcoming months will choke us on, what are willing to go out on a limb predicting?

    Mayank Agarwal vs. Adam Voges
