    Muralitharan big spin

    I was referring to a ball that Murali produced to get rid of Sadagopan Ramesh that was an absolute peach, even better than the one against Butcher. Yes peeps, I have got it. It is the last dismissal of the reel. Ball to pitch half a foot out side off (bowling round the wicket) and to take the...

    Part timers with beautiful actions: Sehwag vs Mark Waugh vs Aravinda vs Hooper

    These guys were extremely attacking batsmen. Entertainers, and because of it thrown many innings away. They had their share of technical weaknesses, but on song, they made Tendulkars and Laras look defensive. This is however about their bowling. All four are part timers, and off break bowlers...

    Epic trolling

    Person X: "Hi, I am Sri Lankan. I have a video of a short Sri Lankan man attacking a group of Australian tourists. Would you like to have the video" News 7: "Send it through if you can, thanks"

    Best ever Associate bowler

    Looking at the Afghan bowling lineup gives me goosebumps. Hamid Hasan ambles and delivers at 145k. Dawlat Zadran is smooth and hits 145k regularly. The 17 year old spinner, Rishad Khan, bows top-spinners and googlies more than leggies and carries a lot of mystery. Who do you think the best...

    Chris Gayle vs TM Dilshan (all formats)

    Chris Gayle is a brutal hitter of the cricket ball and plays high impact knocks. His game is based on power and eye. Very useful off spinner, and a safe fielder. TM Dilshan is a middle order batsman-turned-opener. Plays high impact knocks, and the game is based on reflexes. eye. quick hands and...

    Second best off-break bowler?

    Murali is the best. The question who is next. Laker has a astonishingly good average, and of course that 19 wickets in one match. Prasanna' s average is not very impressive (compared to Murali or Laker), but was an artist. People say very good things about Mallet. Saqlain shot out best spin...

    Second best fast attack in the history

    We all know, West Indies trio / quartet of fast bowlers dominated cricket for 15 years, and in my mind the best pace bowling attack in the history of test cricket. What comes second? Aussies of 2000s? Imran-Wasim-Waqar? Donald - Pollock? Steyn - Morkel - Philander? Thompson and Lillee? Lindwall...

    Split keeping duties

    The current SL test squad has three keepers (Sanga, Kaushal Silva and Chandimal) playing, all are 1st choice keepers in FCC or in limited over formats. Unfortunately all three are prolific top order players. This will force one of them to bat at #7. The reasons are of fatigue setting in during...

    Jeffery Vandersay: First Impression

    A Late bloomer in to cricket, and listed as a legspinner. The last heave weight match he played was against Pakistan A and did well. Today had a look at him. Bowls a pretty decent leg break (mind you T20, did throw up couple of balls though), but no googly. Has a mysterious finger flick slider...

    PHT Kaushal: First impressions

    He has been doing well in FC matches for some time, got a chance against NZ, and got "Baz"ed (but got him out to his credit). Doing pretty well against Pakistan. Big flight, some sharp spin, doosra and arm balls once in a while and bowling wicket taking deliveries. Needs improvement on accuracy...

    How good was Fanie de Viiliers?

    Donald, Pollock, Steyn, Morket and Philander are mentioned a lot. Why not this bloke? Absolutely loved his antics and that approach to the wicket.

    How good is Abdur Rehman?

    Bowls second fiddle to Ajmal, does the dirty work of keeping it tight and does not play every game for Pakistan. But the amount of spin he puts on the ball is just mind boggling. Bowling at 55-60mph, he still turns it square when conditions suit him. Averages 28 with the ball too How do you...

    Ambidextrous bowling

    Hashan Tillekaratne was known for his batting, wicket keeping and quick silver short-leg fielding. But he could bowl with both arms. Bowling right arm and left arm in the same over - very very rare - YouTube
