  1. Great choice of Border.Almost my no 1.What about Harvey? Kalicharan?I almost placed Border ahead of Lara on bad wickets,but he was not as attacking.
  2. Here I am listing in order of merit pairs of statesmen who batted together who when rolled into one compromised the most perfect batsmen. Only pairs who have batted together have been chosen. Considered technical correctness and power blended with grace or creativity. 1. Everton Weekes- Frank Worrell What could be more aesthetic than the unparalleled power of Weekes taking an attack to mercy as though performing a combing operation with Worrell caressing bowling with the grace of the touches of a painter brush. 2. Gary Sobers-Rohan Kanhai Perf
  3. This is my choice of best left-handed batsman ranked in order of merit,on wickets unfit for test cricket or untrue.They could turn games on bad pitches ,with an uneven bounce. 1.Neil Harvey 2.Brian Lara 3.Alan Border 4.Alvin Kalicharan 5.Graeme Pollock /Gary Sobers I wish we could have seen a video of Harvey when scoring his unbeaten 151 out of total off 336 in a run chase on a broken wicket.Rarely was anyone as innovative or creative in hi sera,who resembled a surgeon operating.A master on wet Englsih pitches. Lara w
  4. Cricket writer and former cricket correspondent of ‘The Times’ John Woodcock left us a few days ago, just on the verge of turning 95 in August. It is hard to describe the magnitude of affection cricketers, writers and enthusiasts of the game expressed for him. The game truly lost an ornament. In his schooldays he revealed adept skill in games like cricket and squash. It is ironic that as a schoolboy at the tender age of 15, Woodcock was on the verge of losing his life A devastating blister turned into septicaemia or septic arthritis on his toe. Three major operations rescued his
  5. My 20 most talented batsmen of the last 50 years in order of merit.Assessing only natural ability and not overall class . 1=Brian Lara/Rohan Kanhai-Brian Lara and Kanhai simply took creative genius to sublimical proportions.Both composed strokes of their very own.A Kanhai falling hook stroke and a Lara whip shot is worth preserving in a museum. 3.Viv Richards-Simply took domination to mythical proportions,with the best eye ever,as though striking a football.Nonone was more unbowlable. 4.David Gowerl-Like a modern day Ranjitsinghji,treating even the most letha
  6. Today we commemorate the 40th anniversary of the greatest test match ever in the history of Cricket, which had one of the greatest turnabouts in the history of sport. The 3rd test at Leeds from July 16-21st in 1981, between England and Australia was the equivalent of a Hollywood classic or epic novel. There could be rarely instances in the history of sport where such a miraculous turn of events took place or one felt the sensation of the intervention of the divine. This game set the tone of one of the most dramatic series ever in the history of the Ashes or Cricket itself. On t
  7. Today we commemorate the 40th anniversary of one of the greatest test match innings ever in the history of Cricket, which caused one of the greatest turnabouts in the history of sport. The 3rd test at Leeds from July 17-22 in 1981, between England and Australia was the equivalent of a Hollywood classic or epic novel. There could be rarely instances in the history of sport where such a miraculous turn of events took place or one felt the sensation of the intervention of the divine. This game set the tone of one of the most dramatic series ever in the history of the Ashes or Cricket itself.

  9. 15BATSMEN WHO GAVE CRICKET ITS POETRY AND TOOK AESTHETICS TO SUBLIME REGIONS My 12 most stylish, elegant or graceful batsmen of all time, selected in my order of merit. This is my list of the batsmen I consider to have taken the beauty of batting to it’s ultimate zenith. I am not analysing the best batsman statistically or the most technically correct, mercurial or entertaining. My criterion is the extent of grace or elegance exuded when batting. 1. Frank Worrell- Resembled a violinist when batti
  10. Tragically former test cricketer Yashpal Sharma expired on Tuesday morning, suffering from a cardiac arrest. The cricket world mourns the death of this great servant to Indian cricket. He emboldened the spirit of the game at it's utmost depth, with great reserves of courage and concentration. Ironically he is the only member of the 1983 World cup wining contingent who is no more. His death came as a surprise as he was hale and hearty to the end, embracing vegetarianism and keeping as fit as a fiddle. He may not have been the most talented, but was an epitome of determinat
  11. This is my choice of best batsman on bad wickets,not true for test cricket in order of merit.It only considers ability and performances on wickets untrue or pitches unfit for test cricket. 1.Rohan Kanhai 2.Ian Chappell 3.Brian Lara 4.Majid Khan 5Gundappa Vishwanath 6.Alan Border/Javed Miandad 8.Steve Waugh 9.Rahul Dravid 10.Sachin Tendulkar/Sunil Gavaskar 12.Viv Richards 13.Martin Crowe 14.Salim Malik /Aravinda De'Silva 16.Mohinder Amarnath Rohan Kanhai was simply sublime who could transcend zones in bat
