    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

    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.

    If I am interpreting the data correctly they are being hardly tested.

    India already has lowest level required to pass the test. What's next? Allow players to take players field even if they fall after 100 m just because they have some skill.
     
    We played skilled Zak in first test at Lord's in 2011 and saw what happened. How did more important skill help us?

    @velu this shows the maturity of Karthick. He is not bitter and does not come across as negative. He has moved on and is not makin any excuses. Lot to be learned from what he said and how he says it.

    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.
