Akram ahead of Imran Khan? That's an interesting one! For me as a complete player Imran Khan would be my choice.

Of the golden All-rounder era in the 80's I think he was the very best of them. That generation included Imran Khan, Kapil Dev, Ian Botham and Richard Hadlee so it was an amazing time.

yeah imran was a great cricketer as well but kallis fills the all rounder boots perfectly, and sobers and hadlee are no mugs with their second skill......so i thought it's better to have a fierce frontline fast bowler instead of another all rounder......

Re: The Cricket thread

india v australia should be a good test series. australia need to show that they can be competitive away especially before they go to england for the ashes.

Re: The Cricket thread

was watching west indies vs zimbabwe pre-match show......watching alistair campbell as the guest commentator on the tour reminded me of world cup 2003......

campbell retired just before that world cup and commentated in the first few matches of that world cup......zimbabwe needed an immediate replacement for an injured player and campbell took the spot straight from the commentary booth and played that world cup match which was to be his final match of career......

Re: The Cricket thread

england bowled out for 167. i think they got a little overconfident. NZ didn't lie down.

Re: The Cricket thread

chris gayle absolutely blasted a ton today smashing all the previous records in ipl.....at one point all the bowlers were afraid to bowl at him when the captain looked at them to have a bowl......

Re: The Cricket thread

Betting scandal in IPL?

Blame the cheerleaders:

http://cricket.yahoo.com/news/india-...121024012.html

Plans to jam mobile phones during matches and ban cheerleaders from the sidelines are unlikely to cure Indian cricket of the scourge of corruption, commentators of the sport said Tuesday.

Officials announced an ambitious 12-point plan on Monday aimed at ridding the multi-billion dollar Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament of illegal betting and spot-fixing scandals that have engulfed the game.

Jamming phone towers to stop calls to bookmakers were among actions flagged by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), along with a strict player code of conduct and a ban on their attendance at after-match parties, as part of "Operation Clean-up".




What the heck is wrong with cheergirls like these?







An article on the subject recommended this appearance for cheergirls:
