    *Official* England in India 2023/24 #CryMoreTour

    A chasuble, of course, is a sleeveless outer vestment worn by the officiating priest at a mass. I'm not sure if England brought a priest -- they brought a cook, so it's possible -- but maybe they can make do with getting someone to wear the vestment???

    Was that one of the greatest celebrations and moments of ecstasy ever?

    Seems a bit expensive. Still, if you really need to hire people to cheer for you, I guess you've got to be prepared to pay up. They hire mourners for funerals as well, don't they? Is it the same people?

    ***Official***THE FINAL- India vs Australia - November 19th - Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad (D/N)

    Guess right now Steve Smith is thinking "If only I'd reviewed that, I'd probably have scored an unbeaten ton to single-handedly win a WC final and cement my legend." shame, really.

    It's going to happen today!

    A worthy winner, if that's the case. I wonder what world we would be living in if we ever reached 10,000,000? But it's too scary to think about, really.

    It's going to happen today!

    So it only updates every ten minutes, which means we won't actually see it in real time. It takes me back to being a little kid back in the sixties watching the odometer in my dad's car waiting for all the digits to move over.

    I have a hazy memory of the name Trubshaw that also feels like it comes from that genre.

    *Official* Asia Cup 2023

    The beauty is that they were never on 5/0 -- they went from 4/0 to 6/0 with a two. So even his updates are wrong.

    Which Decade Saw the Best Players Debut?

    Which decade have you considered Lillee to belong to? (Debut in 1970: some people would say 60s, others 70s?) and who is selected above him?

    What were the periods when each of the regular test teams were minnow level?

    Some years back, @Days of Grace posted a massive excel file of his historical test team ratings. (here: http://www.cricketweb.net/forum/threads/dogs-top-100-test-bowlers-countdown-thread-100-1.78907/#post-4089328) DoG has probably tweaked the calculation since then, and it stops at 2018, but...

    Heath Streak Cancer Struggle

    It's kinda off topic now, but just to reinforce what HDS said: get tested. I've had two bouts of colon cancer in the last decade. The first time it was picked up early because Japan offers free cancer scans for everyone above a certain age (I guess 50 and above, or maybe 55?) and radiation...
