Most of the interview was good except his views on overaged players. I agree overaged players should not be allowed in junior tournaments, but there should be a medical test to prove that. Just because some one looks older he might not be really older, because some look much older than their age in the same way as some who look much younger. some boys are physically big and some can have a moustache by
the age of 12, some dont get it even even in their early 20s.

cricket doesn't become more interesting with harshas inputs, he's a waste of time and overrated and piled on viewers and an irritant to retired players in the studio.

A Game of Luck!

Although I do like cricket to a small extent I must say that it is more a game of luck than skills. These are the reasons:
1. If a ball on the stumps, a correct shot will get you runs and wrong shot or wrong timing may get you out.
2. More often than not the result depends on who wins the toss( A pure Gamble).
3. It depends on the Pitch. On a spinning pitch the spinners perform and on hard pitch the fast bowlers perform.On a dead pitch the batsmen rule.
4.A man who scores 200 in one innings may not score at all in the second!
5. A hard shot may go for a six and the same shot may also be caught.
hence Cricket is game that depends on many external factors and no reputations are worthwhile in a new match.

A game should be like tennis where one can say with certainty that the top seeds will reach the SF/ Finals etc. A game should be based on individual brilliance and talent so that the better man wins!

Nice, but this somehow rings hollow and cannot explain the Windies' domination during the seventies and early eighties nor of the subsequent phase in the late eighties and (most of) the nineties by the Aussies.

A lot has been discussed about the sagging test cricket scenario. The reason being playing after 5 full days you have no result which is disgusting.
Let us create a situation that all tests have result and also test the calibre of the true cricket.
Test Cricket.
We should have tests played for only 4 days. ie each team would play for 90 overs a day. There would be 2 innings a team. Assume Team A folds within 90 overs Team B would start and continue its batting for 90 overs and allows the Team For the second innings.

50 overs ODI

This should be played 25 overs each innings per team. Second innings would continue from where the first innings left.
Assume Team A bats for 25 overs and had scored 135 for 3 wickets the second innings would start from 135 for 3.
