Re: Bangladesh Cricket Thread

Pity if the tour doesn't go through.
I love Bangladesh, and want to see them play more cricket.

Re: 2019 obituaries list

Thanks.

I didn't know Seymour Nurse had passed away.

He was a high-quality batsman.

In the 60s, West Indies batting was well served by Hunte, Kanhai, Sobers, Butcher and Nurse.

In his last Test innings, Nurse scored 258.

Re: New Zealand Cricket Mega Thread - Long White Cloud

Excellent.

Cricket will now be more accessible to NZ folks, which will hopefully translate into more interest in the country for the game.

Re: Irish Cricket

Am glad 3rd Man is keeping us updated on Irish cricket.
Nowadays it's very easy to miss a game.
I didn't even know Pakistan and Sri Lanka played a 3-match ODI series!

Re: Ideas to improve cricket

Another idea to improve cricket Instead of 11 vs 11 players, have 101 vs 101. Instead of 10 wickets to get you runs, you have 100 wickets. So 101 batsmen get a chance to bat. But fielding remains at 11 player thing. (You could even make it 15 or so, if you want to shorten the game). You could keep i...

Re: Sri Lankan Players pull out of Pakistan Tour

NZ, Australia, Canada, even countries in the EU - these don't aspire to be world superpowers. They just want to provide a good standard of living for their citizens, and a safe living environment for them. They focus on wealth creation and equitable wealth distribution, so that all, or at least a ma...

Re: Sri Lankan Players pull out of Pakistan Tour

Unlike NZ, Australia etc, India today is a country full of contradictions. It aspires to be a world superpower, like the USA, economically and militarily. But it has very real grassroot problems of malnutrition and poverty of millions. It is not able to reconcile the two. This angers many privileged...
