    A round Telegraph table

    Scyld Berry moderates a wonderful discussion at a virtual round-table between Atherton, Strauss, Sangakkara and Ian Chappell. As you'd expect from these folks, there's a lot of sense. Ian Chappell though had me in splits quite a few times.
    Berry: Was it too long? The ICC chief executive Malcolm Speed didn't think so until last week.

    Chappell: Malcolm has been living in Dubai for too long. As I've said before, they've got a hotel under the sea there and a ski resort in the desert. It's too far away from reality.

    Berry: Plenty of room in the dressing-room for ice-baths?

    Chappell: Is an ice-bath where you keep the beers for after the game?

    Berry: Let us turn, Kumar, to your stumping of Brian Lara in Guyana.

    Sangakkara: Sometimes I break the stumps far too often and this time I was lucky. I have to stand up a lot now. Wickets are getting better and medium-pace or fast-medium bowlers are beginning to suffer [from batsmen going down the pitch] and you have to stand up.

    Chappell: Are wickets getting better or slower....

    Berry: Andrew, what was your favourite moment?

    Chappell: Getting picked?
