    I would probably have India further up the order if it weren't for how irritatingly smug, self-congratulatory, verbose and generally gloaty Indians become whenever their cricket team wins matches.
    Hair perhaps was a racist and abused his position as a umpire to bully the Asian teams.

    He was asking for money:

    Reverse swing used to be called ball tampering at one time too.

    In the early days of reverse swing, Pakistani bowlers were suspected of ball tampering to achieve the conditions of the ball that allow reverse swing, but today they are considered to simply have been ahead of their time.

    I don't think Cricket is doing so well as a whole, in terms of making cash. The Ashes and Australia Touring India are the big money spinners and the rest don't draw alot of crowds.
    i have to agree lack of money in the game ...lack of teaching the children at early years too...lack of it being available to all ....

    I care about the sport as much as the insect. That is to say...not at all. So to answer the question, no.

    No, I associate that attitude more with the English cricket team, mostly because they hardly win anything to begin with. Anyway, here's my order:

    -Australia (well, they ARE my native country)
    -Bangladesh (not like this happens too often, even in one-dayers - but why not? )
    -West Indies (I wouldn't have placed them here 15 years ago - but they never win anything these days)
    -Sri Lanka (why did you place them so low? Because of the hyperbole surrounding Muttiah Muralitharan's action? )
    -Pakistan (I felt that Darrell Hair was at fault for that incident last year more than the Pakistan team - although their attitude and inconsistency is annoying)
    -New Zealand (more by default - I dislike them less than the teams to follow, although their commentators are annoying)
    -South Africa (Still the wannabe Australia - they chew up weak-to-moderate teams at home and tend to struggle away)
    -England (For the reason listed above, traditional rivalry aside)
    -India (I've always taken pleasure in their failures, for some reason)

    Of course, Zimbabwe no longer count, thanks to a combination of the country's interal corruption and the ICC's ineptitude.

    I can identify with your overlooking of minor details, but some of your views are somewhat unfounded. For instance, the game is rabidly followed in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh (countries which aren't exactly overflowing with 'rich white people' ).

    Wow, haven't played cricket in like... close to 4 years!

    ... I'm a pretty good batsman (normally 5th-7th), pretty good fielder - my position was the one next-to or second next-to the wicket keeper (forgot the name of it - winger? IDK), but I was best at bowling!!!

    I loved bowling a lot - medium fast paced, with the ability to swing the ball. Barely used to give any runs away, and took some awesome wickets!

    I should have made it to professional level, but then there were other more important things to do in my life.
