ConsTest cricket can be boring

WRITTEN December 2009 INTRODUCTION I have been a cricket fan most of my life. Nowadays cricket is my most favourite sport. It used to be football but I got fed up of the huge salaries earned by players. I even don't watch 'Match of the Day' every week. Having Sky Sports has really helped my...

ProIndia to win with style

ConsEngland are poor

I know who is going to win the Cricket World Cup! A Pakistani cricketer told me it's not going to be them, and then gave me the pre-printed scorecard with all the scores on for the final on April 2nd! Ok, fixing aside we are up and running on the subcontinent and here are my tips! So, after...

“Duckworth and Lewis System”

published 17/11/2000

ProNone

ConsDoesn't work

The Duckworth Lewis method of calculating what a team batting second needs to score in a rain affected limited overs match is a farce. More often than not the team batting second ends up having to score more than one run more than was scored by the team batting first. E.g. In a 50 overs match the...

“cricket is 2 interesting”

ProRare intellectual sport

ConsLonger than other sports

Cricket is interesting.I think it is the only sport where you actually have to think about what you are doing and what you are going to do unlike 'sports' like darts and walking. The recent ICC knockout trophey has shown that unlike most other sports each team has a chance of winning despite of...

ConsIt's cricket

Why, oh why, oh why. It's just an exercise in pointlessness. I remember standing in the field at school bored out my skull, waiting, waiting, just in case the heavy red ball happened to come my way and when it did I had to throw it back. What fun. In an hour it might have come my way, ooh, at...
