By simply glancing at cricket stats, one can tell the ability of a player. Well it is not possible to say exactly how efficient a player is on the field, but one can get a rough idea about his abilities on the field. For cricket fans, cricket stats are of utmost importance. When a match is going on live, there are several sources through which one can come to know about the score and the overall conditions of a match.

If that is not possible, watching the match live on television is another option. Through this, fans can catch up with a match which is being played anywhere in the world. One can also listen to commentary on the radio and check out the online sites to know about the latest score of the match. Whatever may be the source that they use, they will not be able to get proper cricket stats from there.

For fans that are very serious about the game they need to know about cricket stats. The cricket stats can be about their favorite player or team. Basically, cricket stats are important for fans that are more statistically inclined. Statistics can tell about many elements related to the game of cricket. Cricket stats can be found from many sources; but for fans, the best source are newspapers, magazines and online sites.

The plus points of looking up cricket stats from these sources are that you can store the record with you as long as you want. You can keep a cutting of the newspaper section which has the cricket stats printed. You can keep this for reference purposes and anytime you want to either confirm or cross check any of the records broken by your favorite team or players, you can look at those cuttings. That is not all; you can come to know about many statistics which many people may not have been aware of it at all.

The online sites, which are devoted to cricket, are another source through which fans can know about all the cricket stats. Visitors to such sites can take print outs of the statistics and keep it with them for the purpose of reference. So the next time your favorite team or player takes to the field all you need to do is have a glance at the cricket stats and you will instantly come to know about what record they can achieve in a match and what records they can make. You just need to have updated information about all cricket stats.

Cricket stats can sometime throw up very interesting figures, which normally we may not have been aware of. Most of us know that Sachin Tendulkar is the leading century scorer in both test matches and one day internationals as well. But I doubt how many fans know the number of matches he required to score his first century or the number of years he took after debut to score it. Such interesting facts and many others can be known only after one goes through cricket stats.

Even after over 3 decades of International cricket being launched, there are about only 8 countries in world which play solid cricket .

Countries like Bangladesh, Kenya, Bermuda, Netherlands, Ireland etc etc should not be considered cricket playing countries because they are poor performers. But to save face of cricket boards, they are entered into world cups and other big profile tournaments only so that the sport officials can declare that now many countries play cricket.

Seriously, you can only name 8 countries which play good quality cricket — India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, Newzealand, South Africa, England, West Indies.

Why such low number still?

Hi
Cricket is played all over the common wealth that is almost over 50 countries and you know what Cricket is a game of technicality and it requires both physical and mental strength… and believe me it is difficult to understand , that’s why not so many countries are playing ….and its a costlier game and the game heavily depends upon the climatic conditions of a country …that’s why most of the countries don’t adopt playing cricket… and Cricket is the only game where 3 types of the same game is played (Test, Odi and T20)

Each form requires different strength and skills…..

Cheers

Australian cricket is one the rise these days and one of the main reasons for this is their immense success on the cricket field. This success of the Australian team has taken some beating owing to the recent defeats that they have suffered at the hands of arch rivals New Zealand and England. Australia cricket has given many world class players to the game of cricket,the major among them being Sir. Donald Bradman. Cricket as a game is very popular and the fans are very passionate both about the game and also about the Australian cricket players that represent their country on the field

The Australian cricket team is one of the most competitive teams in the world and of late they have been wining all the major tournaments including The Ashes. This is one of the most fiercely and keenly contested tournaments among the England and Australian cricket team. This year the Australian team won back the Ashes trophy from England who had won it the last time. The Ashes consists of five test matches played alternatively each year in England and Australia. Craze for the game is huge in these parts of the world and because the teams are very good, the public has a good time watching the matches.

The Australian cricket team has a very balanced side and this is one reason of their huge success over the years. The Australian cricket Captain Ricky Ponting seems to be in the best form of his life. Last year and this year, he has had a tremendous amount of success and all this has helped him in becoming one of the best batsmen of the world. The Australian team has the best bowlers of the world in their line up in the form of Bret Lee and Glen Mc Grath. When a team has world class batsman like Ponting, Hussey, Michael Clark and bowlers like Mac Grath and Lee the team is bound to do well.

Until recently the Australian Cricket team was the number 1 ranked team in the world. They held this position for a long time and this is all due to the good cricket that they play against their opponents. Many teams have tried to win against the Aussies, but no team had been successful. Till date they have won three world cup titles, the most by any team that is playing in the world cup 2007. This time the Australian Cricket team and the fans as well will be aiming to win their fourth world cup title.

Earlier the Aussies were the favorites to win the world cup, buy due to the recent defeats that they have suffered they have not only lost their number 1 ranking but have also opened up opportunities for the other teams to win the world cup. As things are progressing it seems that it will no longer be a cakewalk for the Australian cricket team, they will really have to perform out of their skins this time. This will be the last world cup for Aussie player Glen Mac Grath and surely his team would like to give him the best send off and that will be by winning the world cup.

He received the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, Indias highest sporting honour, for 1997-1998, and the civilian award Padma Shri in 1999. Tendulkar was a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1997.
