Aha! So this is the longest-lived thread on Pravda! By comparison my monster 911 thread, born 11/7/03, is a mere babe in arms!

Cricket is God; it has no beginning and no end. Long after we cricket fanatics are dead, cricket will live. Does anybody stop talking about WG Grace or the Don or about Gary Sobers?

Cricket is for happy folk. 911 is for sombre folk.

We aim to be around till 2007.;)

Living in the US, cricket is a stranger to me. I recall seeing west indians and Indians or Pakis or something playing it on rare occasions up in Van Cortland Park, and that's about it. Looks like a very slow paced sport.

Cricket is probably the slowest paced sport in the world. England and South Africa once slugged it out for 10 days without getting a result. Twenty20 cricket is much more suited to Americans. Those games are over in several hours. :)

He is going to stick to the wicket like a leech and the pitch is a batsman's paradise.

Bats like a crab. Sticks like a limpet. Thinks like an Octopus. :)

Cricket world cup? That would be silly! No one even plays cricket here, as far as I know, except for recent immigrants. - Ong

Oldest international match in history was played in the USA. Against Canada. The scorecard. :)

That is why he is captain.

Lara bats like an angel but thinks like a crab.:D

Tendya's assorted spin--one ball offie, next ball leggie, next ball googly--works wonders.

India has never lost at Kochi, I think.:)

Missing him less than expected. Pity that they've got the 'ultimate flatrack bully' still at the crease. He's bound to make a stunning(ly depressing) 31* off 391 balls to save the match. :(

Well quite.

As the cricinfo commentator said "As we get closer to the end, I thank you for the 100's of e-mails we received
They make for interesting reading and interesting points
Also keeps us awake at times like these, joking"

Perhaps I should take it upon myself to keep him entertained tomorrow in what looks like being a very slow and boring day. ;)

Before he went to Australia, I spent about 20 minutes with him at the gymnasium, and found him extremely keen to take on the Aussies. His outstanding characteristic is his willingness to listen and learn. He watches his own videos, talks to people, and has a fair idea of his strengths and weaknesses.
