    All last year's yesterdays?

    Cricinfo's "All Today's Yesterdays" feature is quite a nice one, except that they don't really update it that regularly. Today's feature says
    1951
    Kapil Dev's right-hand man is born. Left-arm swing bowler Karsan Ghavri spent much of his career getting the shine off the ball for the spinners, but he was a skilled performer and would be fighting along with Javagal Srinath for the new ball with Kapil in an alltime Indian XI (those three are the only Indian seamers to take 100 Test wickets). His strike rate was a very acceptable 64 balls per wicket, but none of his four five-fors came in victory.
    Obviously Karsan Ghavri would be thrilled to be featured there. But Zaheer Khan wouldn't be too thrilled with that description. He must be wondering which of those conditions he failed to satisfy. Either he isn't Indian, or he isn't a seam bowler ... or he hasn't taken 100 test wickets.

    I reckon they should call it "All last year's yesterdays", like us linking to previous year's posts.
