Re: Ideas to improve cricket

If only England and Australia play Test cricket, that's also fine for me.
The rest are most welcome to play other formats.

All I need is the Ashes - with proper umpires who support Australia.

Re: Ideas to improve cricket

If BCCI doesn't want to play Tests, I'm ok with it.
I'd like to see them in the longest format, but if that's not popular for their supporters, let them just play ODIs and T20s.
I don't need to follow BCCI cricket, I always have other teams to follow in Test cricket.

Re: New Zealand Cricket Mega Thread - Long White Cloud

From Cricinfo's profile of Guptill: "One of the reasons he hasn't had success in the longest format is his preference to play with hard hands and drive on the up. With the red ball's tendency to move more than the white one, and pitches for multi-day cricket being more responsive to swing and seam, ...

Re: New Zealand Cricket Mega Thread - Long White Cloud

Good. Looking forward to this. Most number of Tests played for NZ. Vettori 112 Fleming 111 BMac 101 Need NZ to play much more, and for Williamson to get to that 10000 run mark soon. http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/records/batting/most_runs_career.html?class=1;id=5;type=team Was just looking ...

Re: Ideas to improve cricket

I'd like to see each country dedicate at least 180 days of a year toInternational cricket. That's 50% of a year, for international cricket, rest they can do whatever they like. For BCCI, Australia, England, NZ, Pak, SL and SA, a possible format-mix could be: 10 Tests a year, 20 ODIs a year, 20 T20Is...

Re: Newzealand's 2 Test & 3 T20I :Tour Of Sri Lanka : Aug.14-Sep 06, 2019

Very well done, NZ. Beating Sri Lanka IN Sri Lanka is certainly an achievement. That too, such a thumping win. Apparently if SL had managed to hang around for another 15-20 min, they could have saved the game. Must have been some tense moments. I just checked Latham's Test record. Avg of 44. He's go...

SL in trouble.
Both openers gone for ducks.
Will they be able to save the game?

Re: BCCI new coach selection

Haha.

Why would you NOT consult with the captain?

I think there's nothing wrong with that.

After all, your captain has to get along with the coach.

No one wants a Greg Chappell - Ganguly repeat.

Ok, maybe the media does. :-)
