Virat Kohli's captaincy debut: The BCCI evaluates

4 days ago

The first Test in Adelaide was a certified humdinger with superstar performances up the wazoo, and one of the best was the mercurial batsmanship of Virat Kohli.

Addressing the cricketing cold shoulder of the Australian people

23 Nov 2014

Citizens of this fine land, I have called this Roar summit to address the evil infiltration of plastic chairs in to our once-daunting coliseums.
