I know he doesn't set the world a light, but is there a more likeable cricketer than Donald Tiripano? He shows the same grit and determination that we were renowned for in the 1990s.

Re: Those men in fiery red shirts

The post-strike winning percentage can't really be compared to the team of the 90s. We were regular playing everyone back then, touring India, Pakistan, England. The last 15 years have seen a steady diet of Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Indian B teams.

I didn't see any of the action today but I don't understand why some are critical here. We should bat as long as possible in the first innings and aim to bat only once.
