Do you agree with Yuvraj’s take on Dhoni and Kohli? Is Wasim Akram right in picking Afridi over Sehwag? Have your say in the comments section below.
Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh said that he got more support from Dada in comparison to MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli. "I have played under Sourav (Ganguly) and had a lot of support from him. Then Mahi (MS Dhoni) took over. It’s a difficult choice to make between Sourav and Mahi. I have more memories of time under Sourav because of the support he gave me. I didn’t have that kind of support from Mahi and Virat (Kohli),” Yuvraj said. Do you agree with Yuvi on this one?
Australian spin legend, during an Insta live session with fans, said he would pick Sachin over Brian Lara as the best batsman in his generation. "If I have to choose any batsman to bat in any conditions, it is a real toss-up between Tendulkar and Lara, but I would just choose Tendulkar. If we have to chase 400 runs on the last day, I would definitely pick Lara. There were these two guys, then there was daylight and after that, the rest of the batsmen came,” Warne said. Who would be your pick?
Another legend of the game, Wasim Akram, said it was Shahid Afridi and not Virender Sehwag who revolutionised opening the batting in Test cricket. "Sehwag came later but in 1999-2000 Shahid Afridi changed the mindset of opening in Test cricket. Even if I was the bowler, I would know that I can get him out but also know that he can hit me for boundaries," Akram said in a chat with Afridi. Do you agree with Wasim Akram?
VVS Laxman’s match-winning 281 featured in former Australian captain Ian Chappell’s two all-time favourite innings against a high-quality spin attack. "The absence of any cricket gives me an opportunity to reflect on an aspect of the game I enjoy: watching a batsman utilise good footwork to combat top-class spin bowling. Two innings stand out: one played by India's VVS Laxman, the other by Doug Walters of Australia," the former Australian captain wrote in a column for Cricinfo. "Laxman's incredible 281 at Calcutta in 2001 is the best I've seen against top-class leg-spin," he added. Who do you think is the best player of spin bowling right now?
Australian spin legend Shane Warne had his say on Steve Smith’s return as a leader of their cricket team. Smith was stripped of the captaincy and banned from leading the team for 2 years over his involvement in the 2018 ball-tampering scandal in South Africa. “I’m sure he could captain Australia again but if I was a selector I wouldn’t,” Shane Warne told the Sky Sports Cricket Podcast. Do you think Smith should captain Australia again?
