Where I highlight an incident that explains why Jason Holder should be West Indies' undisputed captain...
Jason Holder has been given a lukewarm reception since his appointment as West Indies captain. It is high time he was given the backing he deserves.

The overseas player's home ground...

The Indian Premier League (IPL) throws up a sizable chunk of inexplicable, at times illogical, moments. Last week, one of the many female emcees interviewed Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Kane Williamson (who was benched for the game) alongside the boundary ropes.…

Alastair Cook: The Paul Sheldon of his Misery

When Australia lagged behind Canada and USA in cricket

Almost 150 years ago, the United States of America (USA) and Canada boasted of a higher quality of cricket than was prevalent in Australia, albeit they too, like Australia, fielded 22 men against England’s eleven

Pragyan Ojha comes around the wicket, flights the ball at a slower pace than he usually does, gets it to subtly dip and flummoxes Kieran Powell, who was until then batting stoically on 48. Ojha repeats this process against three other batsmen, all of who…

I make a case for Kumar Sangakkara as a pundit in this column as the Sri Lankan great approaches retirement..
Sangakkara once said he occasionally thought of taking up commentary but was apprehensive about committing professionally.

There is nothing scruffy about a Rahane innings. Most good fiction writers vouch that they never wholly commit to a story’s ending because it takes away from the charm of a piquant tale. Although they have a blueprint of what’s to be penned, most of the writing is spontaneous. Watching Rahane bat gives a similar impression: like a nifty artist, there is no saying how his willow will be wielded until the ball is in its final lap, but the end product is sure to captivate
What’s alluring is that Rahane can be a delight to watch in all three versions of the sport.

Cheteshwar Pujara should focus on playing county cricket to resurrect his career, much like Rahul Dravid.

My latest...

It wasn’t a Symonds-esque century that put his side far from the realms of danger — New Zealand were continually embroiled in a race against the required run-rate from the start — but it was more significant in the context of the tournament; plus it was a propeller to a grander stage, with an opportunity to make history.
Grant Elliott's sensational innings against South Africa was reminiscent of many other innings where batsmen have been "in the zone."
