Wisden Cricketers' Almanack obituary
AMANULLAH KHAN, who died on March 12, 2005, aged 71, umpired 13 Tests and 13 one-day internationals between 1975 and 1993, all in Pakistan except the Sri Lanka-West Indies group game at Kanpur in the 1987 World Cup. A club competition in Lahore has been started in his memory.

Some of India's finest wins have come with Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in harness at the crease. At Cuttack they rolled back the years to extraordinary effect

On the forthcoming tour of India, selectors will have to solve the No. 6 riddle, get the batting order right, and strike a good balance between pace and spin
As batting and bowling in ODIs takes on more of the attacking virtues of T20 cricket, where does the format stand as a product of its own?
