    I have been reading in all parts of the internet that some Australian players don’t care for winning the World Cup they care for winning the Ashes. Which is why both teams make sure there best players are available for this rich series. Do you as a cricket lover feel this series deserves the hype it gets?

    They try to play "proper cricket" at a very high standard in the Ashes which has now become very rare in modern day game of tulla maari.

    Yes of course.

    Its the one series that has a proper schedule, its prepared towards by either side years in advance. Its the one series which is keeping test cricket going. Fans love it and most of the days are sold out weeks in advance. If you get rid of this then test cricket is as good as buried

    In my opinion, Pakistan and India should also value test cricket and test series than these stupid t20 stuff we get to see in ipl and psl!!

    They would if they had good players and nice pitches to play on.

    They both have boring batsmen and boring fast bowlers. The pitches tend to either be roads or favour spin too much. It's just not fun to watch

    Dont know about India but Pakistan does have some great test batsmen and bowlers who are proper test cricketers - the likes of Abbas, Yasir Shah, Azhar Ali, Harris Sohail and Asad Shafiq and Babar Azam and Imam and Fakhar and Shadab. All we need is consistent test cricket and scrap this limited overs format. We should stop playing limited overs cricket if we want to play quality cricket!!

    Yes they may be decent players but they are not all 'fun' to watch.
    Yasir could be but rest won't pull much crowd in

    Crowd does not win u test matches~~ Agar crowd jitata hota test cricket mein to india no. 1 test team hoti!! Pakistan has quality test cricketers! Winning is more important than playing attractive cricket!! Buhat khel li hum ne attractive cricket!! Jab koi acha defensive player aata hai usko hum tuk tuk ka label laga kar bahir kar dete hein aur relukaton ko khilate hein 5 5 10 10 saal!!

    I don’t think a average Indian or Pakistani has that much interest in Test cricket. Thats why they don’t bother.
