Are we trying to start fights or something?

ODIs should stay at 50 overs with each side batting 25 and then carrying on their innings for the next 25 where it left off (do away with the 16 over drinks breaks)
Tendulkar is neither the best test or ODI batsman in the history of the game
Every tour should be 3 T20s, followed by 3 ODIs and then 3 tests no matter who the opposition is. If you want to play more it's up to you and eats into your schedule
Saqlain Mushtaq in the only international bowler that could consistently bowl a legal doosra
IPL has actually been good for inyernational cricket

All the ODI regulations should be stripped back to when it was simple, only keeping the batting power-plays
Agree with the 3,3,3 formula ^
Tendulka is the best INDIAN batsmen of the last 20 years...not the best ever!
T20 is the most boring format
Get rid of the T20 WC
Give Ireland Test Status now
Give Afghanistan ODI Status now

Agreed on all points there FBC.

Tendulkar is nowhere near the best Indian batsmen of all time, I can think of blokes like Gavaskar, the two Pataudi's, Dravid and even Azharuddin as higher than Tendulkar.

Tendulkar is like the 5th Beatle in India and even if he isn't the best batsman they've ever had, their starry eyed fans see it like that.

Agreed T20 is the most boring format, I have been to three T20 matches since it came Down Under a few years ago and I still believe it has nothing on Test cricket.

Absolutely agreed on getting rid of the T20 World Cup.

Ireland definitely has to be a Test nation now, they are already better than Bangladesh and even Zimbabwe who have both been there for almost two decades.

Brad Hodge was unlucky in that only 10 days after he was born, a certain Mrs Ponting gave birth to a bouncing boy in Launceston, Tasmania.

When you are born has a lot to do with how many test matches you play. Just ask Hodgie, Stuart Law, Stewie McGill, Jamie Siddons and many others, including current coach Darren Lehmann.
