You control the functioning of telomerases, and you control aging (and by extension, you find a straightforward cure for cancer).Hasn't evolution built in a natural aging mechanism into cells so that it can do its stuff (telomeres which act as counters for the number of times the cell reproduces)? I'd imagine trying to circumvent it would have fairly catastrophic results..
West Indies 3 years ago - Ajantha Mendis made his international debut in the ODI series. Pretty sure West Indies won one of the ODIs with Chanderpaul scoring 10 runs off the last 2 balls when chasing, which was ****ing epic.As you mentioned, hard to do that when he just doesn't play enough (can't remember the last time SL toured outside the subcontinent). Not his fault, but it's what it is.
Yep, by one wicket too IIRC. Last ball went a yard over Jayawardene's head for 6 out at cow corner/deep midwicket.West Indies 3 years ago - Ajantha Mendis made his international debut in the ODI series.

That might be worth a LOL if anyone had come remotely close to suggesting it.LOL at people thinking that someone who had a career spanning over 1000 years would average over 99.94* in Test Cricket.
* unless BCCI make a bizarre rule change.
Do you think Test cricket will survive another 2870 years?That might be worth a LOL if anyone had come remotely close to suggesting it.
On the subject of that record though - it's abject nonsense to suggest that it can never be beaten. Test Cricket at 133 years old is in it's infancy. Bradman might have been a freak that only comes once in the life of a Universe, but on the other hand a "Bradman" might come along every 3,000 years or 1,000,000 years or whatever number you care to put on it. There's just no way of knowing.
Definitely. Sachin - fanboyism is the only fanboyism that is evident in CW,.There's an undeniable link between Sachin lovers trying to bring Bradman down and this thread becoming a pile of ****ing ****
My suggestion, ban all Sachin lovers. Tough but fair imo. Anyone else in agreement?
