In reply to openning
I have been in Calgary for 53 years,
Never been to Calgary and unlikely to ever do so
have every copy of Cricket quarterly and West Indies Cricket,
I have every copy of the Annual from 1970-1992
I went to Tony Cozier home and got all copies and a subscription.
. Good for you
I have never missed a game in our 4-day regionals,
I am assuming that you are talking about before you went to Calgary in 1970!!!!!!!
I don't see anything in T20 cricket that I would get me excited.
This discussion is about red ball cricket and ODI's which are 50 over matches so this comment is IRRELEVANT
I call as I see it,
Clearly that is not the case since you have not seen a lot in the last 53 years due to being in CALGARY
I have seen too many greats,
That is IMPOSSIBLE
I believe in Best practice.
Listening to your discussions and reasoning, that claim is extremely doubtful.
My advice to you is to watch more WI cricket so that you can better pontificate on the subject matter.
none of us know the future of any players,
Careful analysis would make it more likely than not that you will be right more than you would be wrong if you analyze the data properly.
even lived on cricket archive daily when it was free,
I am still living on it
Your opinion is yours,
That isn true, but it is an opinion based on facts,analysis of the data and honed from watching International cricket since 1965 and talking to many former players, umpires and other fans
