    why can't england produce a 50+ batsman?

    why can't england produce a 50+ averaging batsman? kenny barrington's last day of test match cricket was on the 30th july 1968. since that day not one english batsman has retired with an average of 50+. now yes average aren't everything but i think it's a fairly damning stat. not one...

    sledging that backfired

    was just watching highlights of flintoff's 95 v south africa at the oval in 2003 where fairly early in his innings ntini proper sledged him and got up in his face only to have flintoff flog him round the park like he was a village trundler. what other examples of this are there? inb4 big dev...

    The most lowly thought of players with truly gun performances.

    Seeing Athertons name pop up in another thread made me think of how odd it is that a guy who was reguarly dismissed for not very many by too class pacers and who is genuinely thought of as a so so player is also the same player who played two of the 90s most iconic knocks, against Donald and...

    The costliest drops and misfields of all time

    Something I've never seen done before I'll get us rolling Warne dropping Pietersen on 15 at the oval in 2005. A dolly that would probably have turned the game

    Best English fast bowler since Botham/Willis?

    Not exactly a stellar list but with in light of Anderson's superb displays over the past few years I'd be keen to see who you all rank as the best English quick since Botham and Willis.

    Matt Prior

    After his superb innings today to save the match and series for England, I'd like to get some discussion going on Matt Prior and start with a few questions. Does he make your all time England side? As far as pure keepers go he's not even in the picture, but in terms of a batsman/keeper package...

    Would Stuart Broad make India's strongest test XI?

    Stuart Broad, a player mediocre at best with the ball in test match cricket but for some strange reason a nailed on starter for England despite their strength in depth in this department. India, despite their number one ranking a team lacking test quality fast bowlers. Zaheer being the one...

    Why do England struggle to produce undisputedly great players?

    Not since Ian Botham have England produced a genuine ATG player, Graham Gooch is a borderline case but his career was very much a game of different halfs. In this time every test playing nation have managed to do so with the exception of Bangladesh. Australia, the West Indies, India, Pakistan...
