View Full Version : Shifting the focus to the unusual

Much has been said about the indian and pakistani domestic leagues, and many a comparison made to the NCL. however, what most of have forgotten is that we can probably benefit more by following the paths of nations who have only recently come up as big boys in international cricket. the link below contains info on sri lankan domestic cricket. they have lots of 300+, 400+ and 600+ scores in those scorecards, and being a small nation, the quality of domestic cricket (imo) is also higher since the national and A team players play each other on a regular basis, and there's hardly any room for santu's, srinidev's, gopals, jharus and anjumans.

thus imo, a comparison between the ncl and the sri lankan leagues would be more meaningful - esp when you consider the fact that both are nations with similar landmass areas.
