If there is one person who can compete with Tendulkar in the popularity stakes, it is Dravid. If he is there, we have hope. Every cricket playing country has someone like him. In Australia it is Bevan, in England it is Mark Butcher, in the West Indies it is Chanderpaul, and in New Zealand it is Chris Harris. They lock one end up in a one-day game and they do it all over the world on the worst of pitches.
Why I love Chris Cairns? He is the only player in the modern era to have scored a century in a session, between lunch and tea. I loved his dad, Lance Cairns, and if Chris had a son who played cricket, I'd cheer him on too.
zxb, the unc is here from England and it is Glenfiddich time.

It would be a shame, after the exciting ODI series, if the Test series turned into a series of high scoring draws. Sure it won't happen though.

the problem is more with players who are too lazy and busy playing and enjoying the spotlight that they are ignorant of what is happening behind their back where they sign wrong contracts or be manipulated by greedy relatives and friends.

Ag, do you think we really have a chance of whitewashing the West Indies?

Which is logical because neither of those countries are that fanatical about there cricket and nor is there any money involved in the sport. You can see this by how poor there players are.

Im a big fan of cricket. I recognise the share talent that comes out of India and Pakistan etc but please understand that corruption really pisses me off.
Throwing matches, hanse Cronje etc.

LUCKNOW: For all his performances in the just concluded Samsung Cup one day series in Pakistan, the government has decided to reward Mohammed Kaif with Rs 5 lakh in cash and a house in any city of his choice in the state.
All this for that one catch that set the series up. A nice catch
Jonty Rhodes got a pittance by comparison. As for throwing matches I believe that those who do ought to be shot.
BTW, Hansie Cronje was South African and openly religious, so in my dictionary, he was bound to be crooked.
No hard feelings whatsoever Belrick. We cricket fans are a whole lot better than the rest of the loony crowd that comes here.
