Dom Cork pretty damming of county cricket on the Verdict and hitting the nail on the head. Fraser came out with some garbage about it being more exciting if sides get rolled out for 180 in 40 overs than scoring 400 over one and a half days. Something to do with the BPL or PSL seemed to be his "logic". If people like him are so involved in the running of the English game, god save it.

Kohli second fastest to 24 test centuries, behind the Don.

Not bad at all, and that was with no protective headgear, on uncovered wickets and with bats that weren't nearly all middle.

That story of him practicing with the golf ball, the water tank and the cricket stump is astonishing, and quite illuminating. It’s the kind of thing you see in an establishing moment of a superhero film. Ie his hand eye coordination was essentially superhuman

Fair play to Kohli though for being the fastest mortal man to 25 tons!

Although, The Don wasn't the greatest of players on rain affected pitches...as shown by Hedley in 1934.
