Good idea for a new show. I wish ESPNcricinfo would promote new shows and new blogs better by highlighting them in the front page because I almost missed this. How about a small "new" cartoon-splash image with an eye-catching background color such as yellow (similar to that used by online vendors to highlight new items). The editing could use a minor improvement. It is not too difficult to edit the sound separately in most video editing programs to keep the audio quality constant despite video transition.

Rajesh looks a bit nervous in front of the camera.. Andy, needless to say, is all at home.

Andy, Rajesh: Great show! Come to think of it, Nov 1992 must have been preordained to an 111-stat... given that it was the 11th month of the only year in the 1900s that could sum up to 111 (1992)...

In the 1st Test match between Pakistan and West Indies, Saeed Ajmal had the unique figures of 11/111 in 2011.You guys missed that...

Keep them coming guys! I read all the articles daily but never watch a video on cricinfo. But when I read these two names together, I just couldn't resist going for this and it was highly enjoyable.

Really nice show. Like the idea of putting both the king of stats together.
