Seems more like chest beating jingoism on your part rather than a debate iyam. It doesn’t do world - or English -cricket any favours to trumpet about the Ashes mattering more than other matches

In a women's league match in Denmark, a heavily pregnant woman arrived at the crease, and asked for a runner. Her request was denied, on the grounds that her incapacity had not occured during the course of the match.

It's fine to say that, but why were there so few people watching Perera's innings?

We don't know how many people were interested in that game outside the stadium, how many Sri Lankans got excited by it as Perera's innings built. Cricket watching practice is different in different parts of the world - often grounds fill up later in the day as school kids and workers finish their days. Holiday entitlement are less generous than here.

Current test cricket is bent to the will of three countries, prioritising the series between them as major flagships, to the delight of their own fans, but to detriment of matches involving other nations. Now, that's not to say that there low turnouts in other country's test matches are as a direct result, but it won't get any better if the status quo remains.

Wasn’t sure where to post this. Babar azam is so good.

Babar Azam has played 74 ODIs. below are the stats between Babar & Kohli after 74 ODIs.

Babar
Runs - 3359
Ave - 54.17
100s - 11

Kohli
Runs - 2860
Ave - 46.88
100s - 8

*Kohli scored only 1 century out of Asia, Babar 5 centuries out of Asia and UAE.

If he matches Kohli's upward trend ever since, he will certainly be a remarkable player.

I make it 38 scores by England batsman of 20 or more - 3 centuries, 9 fifties and 26 between 20 and 50. For all the talk of proper test batting and building an innings, England batsmen are still incapable of cashing in. If we're to have even a sniff in Australia or India, a few of the England players will have to learn how to score big centuries, like their forebears did in 2012 and 2010, otherwise two more thrashings await.

Interesting to see Sri Lanka rack up 345-8 in an ODI against the W Indies without hitting a single 6. I can't imagine there have been any bigger totals without any sixes.
