Pacy notes

How good is McGrath?

Mcgrath is among Australia's three greatest ever fast bowlers, taking his place alongside Dennis Lillee and Ray Lindwall, writes Ian Chappell.

Adam, a deadly mix of basics & skills

Adam Gilchrist's soul-destroying innings in WC final was far too much for the Lankan bowlers, writes Javagal Srinath.

Only the deserving must taste the Cup

The World Cup is a showcase for cricket and all that is good about the game, writes John Wright.

Bangladesh tour a double-edged sword
