    Default carpet-bombing

    The 'carpet-bombing' of cricket has meant that the men in blue are now the country's most recognizable faces, staring at you from every nook and corner of the land. One moment they are brand names selling you a cola, the very next they are warriors expected to vanquish all their rivals.
