  1. When captain , never let opening bowlers champing at the bit cloud your judgement.

    Mr Sobers, would you like to bat? : Wadekar

    Was supposed to be playing against him but where I live are many great golf courses one being the famous at St Andrews golf course, he pulled out of the game and went golfing instead , he came to the ground after golfing , very impressive guy who liked his drink a lot.

    BCCI may cut the powers of Virat Kohli, Ravi Shastri

    England are not playing or played Australia without Smith/ Warner ? Let's be frank , currently means at the present and you are definitely not showing that , are you? Beating India is no big deal for England , exactly what was expected , infact the script is being played out to the letter.

    " It's working for them though they are playing weak teams at home " ?? #2 team in 2017 , #1 team 2018 Not sure how they could improve on that
  6. Stokes replaces Curran
  7. In London that is considered conservative
  8. Love that picture , perfect example of an International opening batsman in the first over. Young up and coming cricketers should study this and see how you get into the Indian team . Leading into the shot with his head, a big forward stride to the pitch of the ball, a nice high left elbow , bat and bad together with the bowler seeing a full face of the bat as he plays in the V

    Perfect test pace quartet of all time?

    He did have a great big set of balls though and maybe Indian batsmen should grow a set of them

    I apologise that particular photo is not old Trafford and not a county game but after facing West Indies in 1963

    Yeah Brian Close and John Edrich facing Michael Holding , that was very very brutal , Close was a very brave cricketer, batting and fielding at very close short leg , probably to brave for his own good. He was Botham's mentor

    Story for you Velu, my mate opened the batting for Scotland against Lancashire and Colin Croft snapped his bat in two fending off a bouncer, he tells the tale that he played Colin adrift with a pencil

    He was but I would say Sylvester Clarke was the most brutal of all them

    I would agree with you that those 4 were the most fearsome Quartet that cricket has seen but they didn't play together as much as people think . During the period 1977 ( when Croft and Garner joined ) to say 1983 various other quicks played as well. Marshall ( debut 1978) Sylvester Clarke 78 Wayne Daniel 76 Norbert Philip 78 Vanburn Holder ( finished 79)
