So the 2016 World T20 has come to a rousing finish but has left us with some moments to cherish.
Sunday night’s Australia–India World T20 match at Mohali is called the unofficial World T20 quarter final.
In the past a six was a rarity – especially in Test matches. Don Bradman hit only six sixes in 52 Tests.
Currently, Australia occupy number one rankings in Test cricket and ODIs. But in T20 internationals they are way down at number eight.
With the second and final Test for the Trans–Tasman Trophy starting today on the grassy Christchurch pitch, the statisticians are rubbing their hands in anticipation.
In Part 1, I fantasised about organising a Test World Cup to be played between continents – Australia-New Zealand, Europe, Africa, Asia and America – based on their players’ performances in 2025 Tests.
