Near death experiences of G. Watson, Sutcliffe and Patil recalled

10 hours ago

Like the cricket fraternity around the world I am in shock hearing about Phil Hughes’ serious injury inflicted at the SCG on Tuesday. This incident took me back 33 years. It was also on the SCG, the first day of the first Test between Australia and India on January 2, 1981. The Australian pace battery […]

The Indians have arrived, full of confidence after whitewashing Sri Lanka 5-0 in ODIs. I realise ODIs are not Tests, and that this victory was at home and not away, but still they are on a high. They will play the first of their 2 two-day tour matches against a Cricket Australia XI today at […]

What a thrashing Australia received at the hands of Pakistan in the first Test at Dubai yesterday. Winning and losing is part of the game but to be smashed by 221 runs is embarrassing for a team ranked among the top two in Test cricket. Well, the thrashing was actually by eight wickets and 221 […]

Sachin and Steve made Bradman honourees, but where are Garry, Richie and Viv?

9 Oct 2014

Both Sachin Tendulkar and Steve Waugh deserve congratulations for being made Bradman honourees. On and off the field they have been exemplary. They will be awarded the Bradman Honouree award on 29th October at the Sydney Cricket Ground, followed by a gala dinner. This annual award was inaugurated in 2006 and the first to receive […]
