    Who actually uses cricket web?

    I am wondering if anyone actually uses the actual cricket web website.

    I certainly don't. The only reason I visit it is to get to the forum.

    Others may use it though and I ask those that do to explain what they use it for.

    So do you guys use it or not?

    It's not all about the forum, you know - there are excellent player profiles, detailed match reports, and a comprehensive downloads centre (plus more besides).

    I use the stuff on the site a bit like the match reports, player profiles etc, but I know I wouldn't bother if I didn't use the forum.

    There are several errors with the player profiles...

    Chaminda Vaas
    Sri Lankan fast bowler Chaminda Vaas is best known for his accurate swing bowling. Having taken the most wickets for a Sri Lankan fast bowler, Vaas' place in Sri Lankan test history is assured. To be a world class side, a team requires a very good batting line up and a bowling side capable of taking 20 wickets.
    The last sentence is totally irrelevant.

    Mahela Jayawardene
    Mahela Jayawardene, despite his acceptable record, and still enough time to change that into more than that, will always be one of those players who showed immense potential initially, but then didn't give that talent justice.
    Poor English.

    Michael Clarke
    Michael Clarke is perhaps the brightest young star in international cricket today. The current 'Golden Boy' of Australian cricket, succeeding that title from Shane Warne, Michael Clarke has a big future ahead of him. He was tipped to be a future Australian captain before he ever had the prestige of wearing a baggy green cap, and is already the favourite player for many Australian cricket fans, young and old..
    Is Michael Clarke really one of Australia's 'star players'?

    Shane Warne
    Its safe to say Shane Keith Warne is the most controversial player of the modern era. He's also one of the most influential people ever in world cricket. The man that made leg spin 'cool' again, Shane Warne, commonly referred to as 'Warney', has just about done it all in world cricket.,
    If Shane Warne really is "the most controversial player of the modern era" then you contradict yourself here...

    Muttiah Muralitharan
    Muttiah Muralitharan - champion offspinner or exception to the rule. Never has a player been shrouded in such controversy as Muralitharan. He has the inane ability to split any cricket-following crowd, as you truly either love him or hate him..,
    Andrew Flintoff
    England's linchpin. Andrew Flintoff is a truly world-class all-rounder who is equally destructive with bat or ball, and brilliant slip fielder to boot. Flintoff started his career very slowly and spent along time adapting to the International scene, but the wait has been worth it not just for the English fans but all cricket lovers all over the world who he entertains with his explosive exploits. Currently Flintoff holds the record for the fastest ODI half-century by an Englishman taking just 28 balls, and already in his short career he leads the most sixes hit in ODI's also by an English player. Massively important to the English side and is probably on the team sheet before the captain at the moment, will lead the charge for regain the Ashes in 2005..
    Flintoff is not a ''destructive'' bowler.

    Ian Bradshaw
    The overlooked performer for most of his career, Ian Bradshaw did not get selected for international cricket until 2004 against the touring English. As such, his international career began some six years after he was first picked for Barbados at the regional level.
    Is Bradshaw really one of West Indies 'star players'?

    a) Jayawardene's record is acceptable, though nothing flashy
    b) He is still young enough to make more runs to bring about a change in the record
    c) He'll be remembered as the one who couldn't make much from the first few years of his career

    Hmm...
