Cricket's all-time alphabetical 'R' Team

With the pairs of Richards (and sons) and Russells, as well as other high quality players, the ‘R’ Team is perhaps best described as ‘light heavyweight”’– strong and powerful but just below a few of the others. Still, this is a very strong team.

Cricket's All Time K Team

With some of the composite teams coming up, we are now past the half way mark of this marathon. To date, the B Team and the H Team are the stand outs and it’s fair to say that they won’t be challenged by the K Team.

Hmmm…I could have sworn the original article said Clive.

The next best West Indies Test XI

One of those draws was Faf’s heroics as well.

Mitchell Starc and Steve and Mark?

Steve Waugh and Charles Pearse?

Adelaide may have been a good batting pitch but there were relatively few draws there.

It’s Clyde Walcott by the way.

Personally, I think Hall gets kind to the side ahead of Bishop.

Plus you haven’t said who is your first team No 11.

And finally, it does seem unthinkable to me for Viv not to be in a West Indies First XI.

The problem is that Brown didnt win a Premiership with those same players.

Is Wayne Bennett a super coach or a super fraud?

Or Jasprit.

Pakistan had the opening pair of Farhat-Butt for a while.

Our Pat might have been a better choice.
And Peter Willey with Gladstone.

I’m sure Graham Onions once dismissed Phil Mustard.

Also you missed my favourite ever bowling attack of Malcolm, Fraser and Gough.

Grant Atkins didn’t even make the call did he? Wasn’t it a bunker decision?

Disparaging, ignorant, offensive: Why Addin Fonua-Blake's behaviour warranted more than two weeks

He’d be sacked if he punched a referee though.

The headline refers to balls, not deliveries!

The balls that changed it all

And DeShaun Watson!

Patrick Mahomes signs richest deal in sports

A mate of mine who was there still reckons it’s the loudest roar he’s ever heard at a sporting event.

Look, we all know that there is no right or wrong way to settle a tie. We’ve seen it in World Cup soccer finals, in last year’s Cricket World Cup Final, AFL Final replays etc.

I’m not one to feel sorry for Greg Norman but he lost every single golf major in a playoff. Unfortunately for Greg, those losses were across 3 different playoff formats. The 1984 US Open was over 18 holes, the 1987 Masters and 1993 PGA were sudden death (with Norman very unlucky in both) and the 1989 British Open was a 3 hold playoff that Norman had lead after the first hole.

What a great game between the Storm and Roosters… at least until golden point

Wouldn’t it just be glorified practice matches?

What about those NBA teams left out of the Orlando bubble?

Well that kills the Chief’s chances for another Super Bowl after next season.

Warne’s ball shaped world cricket for over a decade. It will always be the greatest single delivery in Test cricket for me.
Special mention for the Harrison bouncer which cut Ponting’s face at Lords in 2005 as well. England lost that test due to their batting but that ball set the scene for England’s fast bowling pack for the series.
And of course, Alfred Shaw to Charles Bannerman was pretty historic!

Homebush works for me. I’m a member there so would go to my first ever AFL GF.

An MCG grand final probably can't happen - but where else works?

George Aubrey Faulkner is your all rounder.

An Alan/Allan/Allen Test XI

He’d be hard to leave out.

Thomas Godfrey Evans is the likely keeper.

Hopefully we can do better than Hoggy.

But it did love the fact that his nickname was “George”.
