    How good was Basil D'Oliveira?

    I just watched a documentary on the whole Basil D'Oliveira affair (Awesome viewing, anyone who hasn't seen it should look on BBC Iplayer for it) from the 1960s. Now, given that he's such a well respected person for matters not entirely down to batsmanship, it's slightly inevitable any...

    David Hussey

    What are people's (especialy the Australian's out there) opinions of David Hussey? From what i've seen and heard of him in the county championship the guy is ridiculously talented- scoring 272(234) and hitting 7 6s in 8 balls in a one day game for instance - and he's one of my favourite...

    Is it just me that can't wait for the World Cup to end?

    I'm sick of the whole thing tbh, the intial stages were absolutely awful with the minnows playing and even the shock performances of Ireland and Pakistan isn't making it any better. The whole tournament is drawn out far too much, we're being overloaded with sub standard meaningless cricket...

    Why when batsmen run a single and the ball is overthrown to the boundary do they get 5 but when a batsman hits a good shot, runs a single, the fielder dives on the boundary but knocks it over the rope, the batting side only gets 4? Is there a specific rule for overthrows?

    I'm on part 2 of the Sachin TV interview videos on youtube and they've just been talking about a world cup semi final against Sri Lanka (i think) that ended up with the Indian team in tears.

    "Fielding is the most important part of cricket"

    Agree or disagree? I'm sick of being told by people(especialy coaches) that fielding is the most important part of cricket, it's simply not true. Now i know there isn't a MOST important aspect of cricket because batting and bowling are equaly important, but fielding is NOT the most vital skill...

    Rate This Series

    Ok, the ashes last year was a fantastic occasion for sport, and i don't think anyone can seriously argue that the next ashes will surpass 05 for public following and standard of cricket.
