The KFC Big Bash League is all set to kick off this Australian summer. Here's a preview of the upcoming action.

This is a story about Cricket and its changing nature and forms. It is the view of a vintage cricket fan who acknowledges and warmly embraces the new definitions of the game, but also dearly misses the age old charisma of the "gentleman's game."

Is it over for 50-over cricket?

The new county cricket season is now underway, but without a 50-over one-day competition. Could this be the sign of things to come for the game as a whole?

The day the cricketing world stood still

Cricket in Chiang Mai, Thailand!

Cricket is a world game, and like most sports, we westerners take that for granted as we can choose to play a sport or not to play a sport. So, here in Chiang Mai, Thailand, we are trying to give Thai children the opportunity to play a sport, in this case cricket. Thai life can be hard and a struggle for existence, especially for the poor,, which Thailand has many. Many Hilltribe children are our players and life for them is very difficult especially when they get older. I'm involved in coaching these kids to have fun and learn something new, and I want their efforts to be recorded. If we can change just one child's destiny then we've done our job.

Is it a common trend in the media nowadays just to overlook the positives and keep on harping about the negatives? Read on to find out this writers opinion.

A Unique Dilemma

The September 11 attacks changed the way we used to think. Today it has made us more insecure, fearful, suspicious, and made us believe anything is possible in this modern world. But it has also made us more proactive and better prepared than at any time. How has 9/11 affected sports? Read on to find out.

The Three Cricketeers

They all made their debuts together around the same time. They all have played about the same number of Test matches. They were all primed for greatness and almost at the same time, they have achieved it. Let's take a look at these three cricketers who have helped shape up the fortune of their respective countries.

So, what's new with Indian cricket

A high profile committee has been setup to look into the Indian cricket team's dismal performance in the one day games. Historically, such committees have proved nothing more than an eyewash. Would this one prove different?
