Very interesting and informative conversation. The Ind/England/Aussie thing might be true in the monetary sense, but most of the truly exciting talent seems to be coming from the other countries. People like Gayle,Afridi, Steyn and Irfan can exhibit performances and talents never seen before on a cricket field. In my opinion the biggest 10 crowd pullers in the game right now are those 4, plus Pietersen , Dhoni , Ajmal, Narine, De Villiers and Kohli. Only three of them belong to India, Australia and England. I think the cricket world needs all of them to maintain and increase its popularity.

Kimber's spot on about the India/England/Aussie thing though. Unfortunately.

A couple of points; Monty Panesar was not dropped by Sussex earlier in the season, but missed a game because of a sore shoulder when a cortizone injection didn't go quite right. Also it was suggested that he has been struggling this season, however, amongst spinners, he is the leading wicket-taker in Division 1.
