    Speed Test in line with YoYO Test.

    @vishalvirsingh point about pace is extremely important. Pace is hard to teach but you can slowly learn control. Op is thinking correctly. One metrics in baseball is three consecutive balls at 90 mph. Easier said than done.

    Not a bad idea at all. This could be one of the metrics for evaluation alongl with several others.
  3. Beer beley will not cut it. Look at the football player in world cup. Players from poor nation are not even paid and look at their level of professionalism.
  4. No one would believe it but in DDCA club room all they did was play cards. That is messed up.

    Skillful or not, there’s no escaping the yo-yo

    I don't know enough. I saw two and put the numbers for the tougher ones. In either case the numbers they have to meet show a lower grade athlete. Compare them to baseball players and cricket players look clueless. I can categorically state you can take any random outfielder or infielder from baseball and he will outperform the best selected cricekt player in athleticism. Cricket players are pretty poor athletes.

    males females rating meters level meters level elite > 1280 > 22.5 > 800 > 21.1 excellent 1000-1280 21.6-22.5 720-800 20.7-21.1 good 720-1000 20.7-21.6 480-720 20.1-20.7 average 480-720 20.1-20.7 360-480 19.2-20.1 below average 280-480 18.3-20.1 160-360 17.2-19.2 very poor < 280 < 18.3 < 160 < 17.2 If I am interpreting the data correctly they are being hardly tested.

    No compromise. I was never gifted or good. My tennis coach always reminded me that one cannot control talent as it is god given but fitness you have complete control over. There is no excuse for this BS. Cricket players should be reminded how hard other sports people work. Michael Phelps while training would consume 12000 calories a day. Now put that in context. I doubt if cricket players dissipate any more than 5 to 7000 calories
  8. Ignore the haters.

    Does India Need a Caste-based Quota in Cricket?

    New balls for us were reserved for saturday games. Used to practise with old balls. No money for pads and just use to put on one for the front foot initially. Later on the club had more money but it was poverty all around.

    Cricket is an expensive sport and we will always miss out on people from poor background. That is a shame.
  11. Can you take your preachy tone and stick it where sun dont shine. Your behavior is very annoying.
  12. Like the last bowl six. Tell me anothet clutch moment in Indian cricket. I have lots of patience.
  13. Petersen is stupid if he thinks poor marketing is the issue behind test cricket. This product was there for 100 years and people have moved on. I enjoyed reading newspapers but sorry I am getting my news from internet now.
