    The Lost New Zealand team under Stephen Fleming

    Looking back at NZ's rise a test team under McCullum ever since the were bowled out for 45 in South Africa 2013 to be on the cusp of being world champions this year and also on the verge of beating Australia for the first time since 1985/86 in the upcoming two test series - my wind has wondered...

    Greatest keeper batsman - Gilchrist or Sangakkara?

    Now that Sangakkara has recently retired, I think this is interesting topic to discuss and in hindsight i believe Sangakkara was better modern keeper/bat since 2000 and if you picked an all-time XI & needed a keeper with strongest batting prowess in test history it has to be Kumar. GILCHRIST...

    English Off-Spin - Where does Graeme Swann rate?

    Well of course Jim Laker is unanimously rated as English best ever off-spinner for obvious reasons. But Swann performaces since last winter vs South Africa have been the best performances by an English spinner since Underwood (although Tufnell has his period in the early 90s) & the best from an...

    Nathan Hauritz's role in the Australian test side: Should he really be a fixture?

    Watching the New Zealand test series earlier this year, especially the recent 2nd test as Ross Taylor assaulted Hauritz in the first innings & the test vs Pakistan in ENG. Then in the second innings when Clarke managed to do a very steady job as spinner & North taking a 6 wicket haul @ Lord's...

    What is more difficult: Facing a quality pace attack or Facing a quality spin attack?

    As the thread states, which is/has been more difficult for test bastmen to counter?. I ask this question because when judging great batsmen, especially the many batsmen"Flat track Bullies" of the last 10 years who average 50+. One finds a a very consistent trend of these batsmen doing well...

    Australia's Best T20 XI

    Well this team is being picked with T20 WC next year in mind. But unfortunately due to poor scheduling not enough international practise will be avaliable. Plus the dumb selectors have already made Clarke captain. I personally also am disappointed Ponting retired tbh, i would have hoped he...

    Reintroduction of the Substitute rule

    Given how T20s have evolved i think having this rule back again, would make the format even more appealing. As most would remember the way ICC structured the rule the last time, where by the captain had to name his sub before the toss instead of after the toss, really was stupid. I was always a...

We where just watching back Johnosn spell in the 2nd test & his batting in the 3rd test. And boyyyy old guy was going off & was adamant that Johnson has better attributes than Davo...

    Moin Khan vs Rashid Latif

    Just wondering how you Pakistan rate them & who do you think was better. I have always heard the general idea that Latif was the better glovesman while Moin was better with the bat. But i have my querries. From my knowledge i can't say i can honestly separate their ability as glovesmen, but...

    The Road to the 2009 Ashes

    Well as a traditionalist with not much enticing test cricket series coming up within the next year IMO other than AUS in PAK (yes i am discounting Aus in Ind cause i't won't be the same as before & SA vs AUS 08/09 since they always choke againts Australia or neutral series i.e Ind vs Pak) the...
