    Credit where credit is due, an incredible mammoth statistical analysis by Cricinfo in determining the best ODI batsman ranked. Reminded me of DOG statistical analysis on best test batsman in this forum. Normally the debate is Sachin Kohli or Sir Viv, however this analysis brings Ponting 2nd...

    Best top 5 current test pace bowlers

    Thanks for all who voted in narrowing the current spinners down to the top 4 current test spinners - Ashwin, Jadeja, Lyon and Yasir made it to the final 4. Then in the final it looks like Lyon has beaten Ashwin by 1 vote to win, with Jadeja 3rd. Similar concept here, but vote in the poll for...

    Current top 4 test spinners

    So however you want to determine "overall" who are your top 4 overall current Test Spinners? Then depending on the results we can do a vote on the best current test spinner. Im sure I can predict the top 2 however number 3 and 4 will be interesting... Poll in no particular order.

    Why are England fans the only ones that travel to watch their team?

    Have been thinking about this for a while . If you look at England's tours to West Indies and Sri Lanka - there were thousands of England fans in the stadium who had flown over for the test series and packed out the ground. Why do we not see this from India (of course stadiums are full when...

    Not sure if it is available in all countries (definitely have a look) but Sky Sports in UK have released "Kevin Pietersen - story of a genius" , 2 hours in total but they have broke it into episodes as well.

    Who would you pick as your 2 Test openers from 21st Century?

    For me it would be Cook and Sehwag. Cook being my first choice and Sehwag second. Cook opening in the hardest country in the world to open is a definite factor for me - plus his great record in Asia (54 average). Sehwag would compliment him well in my opinion, poor record when the ball moves but...

    Why did CW not see this coming from Kohli?

    Of course not a personal attack etc. I will just give examples from people who are not CW forum members. So so many times in last 4 years, Kohli was an unreal ODI player but only averaging mid 40s with the bat in tests, but it was blatantly obvious that someone so good in ODIs would convert to...

    Ridiculous World Cup Prices 2019
