  • Isnt JPeeling a Don Bradman of this forum? Agree?

    Iam amazed on the knowledge that this guy has who is supposed to be from England. He seems to have a good answer for almost anything on Cricket. The other thing I have noted is that he only answers those questions which he thinks he is very good at answering. His best answer rate is over 60%, and I think its like a Sir Don Bradman's test average... show more

    I have been following this news that Sachin is being recommended by British PM for knighthood. Excuse my ignorance, but whats the speciality of knighthood? What does it mean or imply? And, based on some of the answers, I see that Indians and Aussies dont recognise it. Why is that? Why is the knighthood being ignored by few countries?... show more

  • Middle stump knocked out!! Food for thought?

    Middle stump knocked out backwards is one of the greatest sights in the game of cricket for a bowler! Muralitharan has the most number of bowled in tests with 157 scalps and followed by Warne with 116. Both these legends are those who turn the ball a long long way.

Muralitharan has the most number of bowled in tests with 157 scalps and followed by Warne with 116. Both these legends are those who turn the ball a long long way. Do you consider it amusing and strange that bowlers who spin the ball a mile have so much bowled dismissals? Do you think most of them would have been leave alone by batsman which would have spun right across them to rattle the stumps? I was of the impression for a long time that bowlers like McGrath who are consistent in that off stump line would have had more bowled dismissals. So, Why do you think that this is the case? Whats your opinion?

  • Has Ian Chappell made a mistake saying this?

    In a preview interview of T20 WC Cricket, Ian Chappel said that India and Pakistan are the two likely teams to disappoint the most. They have reached the finals, instead. Listen for his interview at http://content.cricinfo.com/talk/content... Is this called the commentator's curse or is it just another bluffing? Haha!
