I'm amazed that Sachin/Azhar duo dont figure here. To me...the literal definition of "go-to" was what Azhar used to do with Sachin. Maybe that effect was heavier in ODIs...

worma: one ofthe criterion is to win atleast 20 games. azhar as india's captain cud only muster 14 test wins.... hence is not in the list.

hmm..yes..that shud be the reason...still cant get it out of my mind though :-)

worma: even before SRT, i thought about the absence of murali and vaas fromthe list. ended up reading the article and realized that jayasuriya had only 18 or so wins where murali's performance was phenomenal. now the count has started again with atapattu

yeah...and also wonder why Warne/Waugh combo is not there? McG spoiled the party it seems?

worma: i am really impressed with the way S. Rajesh has used his article 'Numbers' over the years. he talked about wicket keepers, cover drives, pull shots et al in the past and now this. very effective articles. really utilizing the data available and converting it to useful information.

yep..Mohandas Menon used to do something similar for rediff....one could even pose a question to him for statistical analysis. Not sure if he's still around.
