    Are Australia the supervillains of Test cricket?

    It seems that, by virtue of being on the receiving end of so many test match series for the ages, that this might be the case. What do you think?

    Matt Prior vs. Joseph Buttler

    1. Auto correct won't let me type Jos 2. Both earned the test gloves on the back of figuring out how to stay in the XI, with runs, while figuring out the keeping later 3. Both selected ahead of superior glovemen 4. This may all be Adam Gilchrist's fault

    All Lives Matter - Boeta Dippenaar

    So, Lungi Ngidi has recently called for the Proteas to express support for BLM and then Boeta Dippenaar, together with several other former Proteas responded saying All Lives Matter. Now there seems to be a growing split between white and non-white Proteas on the issue with lots of Black and...

    Perverse Delight thread

    This thread is all, or mostly about the schadenfreude we should come clean on feeling when some sports team gets a terrible result. For instance, as much as I respect Pep Guardiola and Sir Alex Ferguson as coaching geniuses, there is something strangely satisfying about those Champions League...

    Your gutsy calls for 2020

    Aside from the hindsight and foresight puns this 12 upcoming months will choke us on, what are willing to go out on a limb predicting? I reckon Zimbabwe will be stripped of test status Afghanistan will win more test matches than Sri Lanka Cricket Kenya will be dissolved Root to score more test...

    Football stuff that doesn't deserve its own thread

    Watching Kenya's home AfCON qualifier against Togo on our beloved exists for the sake of it national broadcaster. Having been absent for the entirety of the 1st half he has variously called the opposition Ghana, Senegal and Ivory Coast.

    Mayank Agarwal vs. Adam Voges

    Obligatory comparison thread based on their disproportionately high test batting average from a really small sample size. They are obviously not waste men but who's average flatters theme least?

    The Official Hamilton Masakadza Tributes thread

    Now that his international career is winding to a close, is there anyone who personifies the lost potential of the decline and fall of Zimbabwean cricket more than Hamilton Masakadza. Plucked out of high school a bright young prodigy, set a record for yongest test centurion in a Zimbabwe team...

    Joe Burns vs. Rory Burns

    Because why the hell not? Even if one hasn't been selected and the other isn't exactly lighting the world on fire, no subbie is complete without a poll

    *Official* Zimbabwe Tour to the Netherlands

    Who the hell schedules an ODI tour at the same time as the cricket World Cup? Who? Why Zimbabwe off course. Three ODIs and Three t20s to sneak in while no one is looking

    *Official* Africa Cup of Nations

    Between the CwC, the Ashes and Nations league, Africa's second oldest, and believe it or not best organised international football tournament is happening. For the first time East Africa has 4 representatives Don't really have any favorites. Egypt the hosts and among the favorites in what should...

    Mitchell Starc v. Vernon Philander

    Both are decent fast bowlers, but as the atmosphere just now dictates, one has to be declared better than the other one. Makes no difference to me through.

    English Footballers who Could Still Come Good

    In a small attempt to lift the soon and gloom here is a thread to discuss which young, or youngish English football talents who could probably still wind up being world class, or at least shift into a higher gear. I would put John Stones, and Ross Barkley in this category. More hopes on Stones...

    Stuart Macgill v. Mitchell Johnson

    One was probably the greatest understudy leg spinner in the history of Australian cricket. Then they passed him the torch and suddenly he could not bowl anymore. The other was a raging cannon of moustachioed pace bowling excellence, except when he was a disappointing pie chucker. Who was the...

    Chris Woakes v. Jacob Oram

    Another quagmire to ponder. Who's the better allrounder at international level

    Ravi Shastri v. Daniel Vettori

    Because why not get in on the latest surge of comparison threads? Both were almost but not quite there all rounders who chipped in with wickets and runs at critical junctures. So the question is who was the greater cricketer?

    A World Cup Without Pakistan!?

    The detail is in the link below, but the gist is that as things stand Pakistan's current ranking means they are at high risk of having to face an additional round of qualifying to the 10 team 2019 World Cup, yet again risking oodles of tv viewership millions being compromised by meddling...

    General Doping Thread

    Surprised that there isn't already a thread for this, given how this business is everywhere nowadays. Be that as it may, I am mildly shocked and surprised that in Kenya the issue went this high up. Always figured it was mostly crooked chemists taking advantage of desperate middle of the road...
