Glad to see you posting on cricket. It is simply the best game in the world. It combines history and innovation in a way we could all learn from. Next time you are in India, ask someone to take you to a game, at eden gardens, perhaps. then watch some kids playing on the beach or in a street. maybe have a go...

Bob's murder is really tragic. He was a pioneer of many innovations in the game, and he is a great loss.

Please watch the youtube clip on my recent post here, and you will see some really fast paint in action.


This world cup cricinfo are providing a virtual simulation of the game! With severe online broadcasting restrictions cricinfo offer text based commentary and an application that shows virtual cricketers simulating the game! It runs a few balls behind the real action. Not sure if this is an innovation or just a poor substitute for live action.

But for real in depth technology try the place all bowlers go to have a suspect bowling action checked. The Western Australia School of Human Movement and Exercise Science and the biomechanical testing and recommendations of 15 degrees of extension in bowling a legal delivery.

Remember when bowling used to be simple?



Yes. Cricket has come a long way with the One day cricket and the new 20-20 games. Innovation is the order of the day in every single aspect of the game. Innovative batting, Doosras, fielding (see Gibbs' run out of Chamara Silva yesterday). Aakash Chopra, a "failed" Indian cricketer nows plays for an English County and writes on the game. He is probably one of the best cricketer-writer that is around these days. Read his latest article on innovations in batting in the recent years (http://www.htcricket.in/htcricket/8170_1959981,001601420009.htm). Fantastic article.
