Glad to open a Cricket Thread the most followed and worshipped game in the Indian Subcontinent though i am pessimistic this thread will get many patrons
Updating India Won Vs The West Indies in West Indies it was the first match of the ongoing 5 match ODI series and will be followed by the test series.

They may be numero uno (rightfully so, they probably have the best batting unit ever seen) in the current climate, but they've got some way to go before they're included in the same bracket as the Aussie teams of the '90s and early '00s , or the WI ones of the '70s. Their test record is rather woeful.

Indeed, the current Indian team is nowhere near the level of greatness of WI in the 70s and Australia of 90s and early 00s. I really don't see INdia winning three World Cups on the trot.

Never realized until last week that only Ian Botham and Imran Khan had ever scored a century and taken a ten for in the same test match. Great job by Shakib Al Hasan on joining those two truly greats.

It's definitely an achievement he can take heart from. A great player he is, maybe not Botham or Khan-level great but a genuinely world class player, being consistently rated number one in the all-rounder category for a good no. of years now. One can only hope he keeps the level up and his temperament in check, which is about the only achilles heel to his game.

Hope the guy recovers and pulls off a Jesse Ryder. Very unfortunate that this happened, even with protective gears.

And then to think that in the era of Jeff Thomson and Dennis Lillee most batsman didn't even wear helmets.
imo protective gear gives a false sense of prtection and leads to a demise in batting technique.
