    LOL - yeah, Chris Tavare couldn't do the former, and only Viv might have a chance at the latter - unbelievable really

    He's no Chris Woakes, but not a bad career

    All the comments are saying Kohli is better?

    They just can't help themselves, it's like they just have to be relevant

    It burns them to the very core of their being that the biggest rivalry in all of Cricket doesn't involve India

    Mediocre effort, not even 8/11 at best, but if noone else gives you a like by Sunday, I will ;)

    Never played on something something Sachin something something IPL something something VIRAAAT something something something.

    One of the best, shame he's given it away. I did like his reason - he was just tired. Fair enough.

    Wonder what odds if he has a good ipl next year on a World Cup comeback?

    The public demand wil be huge. Not just in SA.

    Modern Day Legend - in a time where the term legend is used too loosely.

    Best sporting feat I've ever witnessed as AB batting against the Windies at the SCG in the 2015 World Cup.

    Got 162 not out off 66. He was 50 off about 33 then it was a barrage of 4's and 6's. And they weren't slogs, genuine shots. I was sitting in the main windies fan section and even they were applauding.

    If I had to have a player to bat for my life it would be De Villiers (one I've seen - thus not Bradman(
