Friday Fights | The Big ODI Fight - Andrew Symonds vs Eoin Morgan

Andrew Symonds is right up there, in terms of his stature, as one of the most intimidating cricketers of all-time; you’re an idiot if you voluntarily pick a fight with the big man and chances are that the bout will end in pain and tears for you. So, what chance does a 5’7 Eoin Morgan stand today?

Friday Fights | The Big ODI Fight - Virender Sehwag vs Desmond Haynes

One redefined opening with a butcher-like display and the other, a glorious batting merchant, was the tallest ever opening run-scorer in the era he batted in. They were too asymmetric in their style but was there a contest we often miss out on? Your beloved team at Friday Fights, however, doesn’t.
