Dhoni the Test wicketkeeper needs a break

Sep 4, 2014: History has shown that a vibrant keeper infuses energy into a side, but that quality has gone missing in the case of India's captain

Martin Crowe

Test cricket's young Fab Four

Aug 29, 2014: Kohli, Root, Smith and Williamson will take turns as the No. 1 Test batsman. So far each has shown only one technical weakness

Martin Crowe

Cricket cannot bend rules to accommodate chuckers

Martin Crowe

Should Dhoni focus on one-day cricket?

Aug 14, 2014: His decisions in the England series have seemed to confirm that he does not care too much for the Test game. Maybe he should be concentrating on the World Cup

Martin Crowe

The perils of ignoring footwork

Aug 8, 2014: The secret to consistent Test batting is to play athletically off both feet, a tenet largely ignored on day one at Old Trafford

Martin Crowe

Have India missed the boat?

Aug 2, 2014: They made a wrong move by refusing to pick Ashwin; Kohli and Pujara have not come good; and Jadeja has only flattered to deceive

Martin Crowe

Jun 22, 2014: More intent to stay forward at the crease and on the field as captain will help mute his harshest critics - one in particular

Martin Crowe

Why cricket's future is bright

Martin Crowe

Step up, captains

May 26, 2014: We can't trust administrators or politicians to get us out of the current crisis. Captains, both current and former, need to take the reins

Martin Crowe

T20 is where cricket can experiment

May 10, 2014: This is the format in which to try new stuff, keeping the need to entertain fans uppermost in mind

Martin Crowe

What's behind team spirit?

May 1, 2014: It comes down to how our relationships need to work in any form of life and this has to do with the ability to love, to talk, to listen and to commit. In short, to relate
