Bhajji and his habit of downplaying current cricket competitiveness....

Recommended Posts

Post 2010, Bhajji averaged 38+ every year, when attention started to come on actions. He was only 29 then so logically his peak years should have started then.....

 

Also His overall away average is 39, including Pakistan, SL etc.

 

But in any case this wasnt the purpose of the thread so Im not sure why his fanboys had to bring that up. There are many holes in his record which wasnt my intention.

 

The intention is to just point out his shady attitude where he downplays achievements of Indian cricket team post his retirement.. Our Pacers do well and thats because of green pitches.... Spinners do well thats because of turners.... Away tours are apparently much easier now and not the same challenge....

 

Any achievement the current team gets can never be comparable to the Indian team which he was part of.

 

I can guarantee that if we win in Australia next year, for Bhajji it still wont overshadown the 2003-04 series draw in Australia. No one cares for the fact that warne, mcgrath etc were unavailable.....

O please . He is not down played anything . What tosh . Just making big stuff up cos hate him . Anyway why you so keen on ex players sticking their tongue up Indian teams arse . We need guys ready to tell it how it is , we have none in media . And sadly bhaji don’t tell it how it is either .

 

as for you slagging of India drawing in aus in 2003-04 . Now that’s bitter hate full stuff . That was brilliant by India to that and great series . Sad that guys like you want to slag brilliant performances by Indian team like that . Sachin laxman and Dravid and co were superb , sad that you don’t care much for that .

Why are we assuming Harbhajan would think differently? All he said once was that SA arn't as good as they used to be and that he wished he and kumble got to bowl on similar home pitches which are both things that are probably true although the former is debatable I think.  SA don't have Kallis anymore and steyn is in his mid 30s returning from an injury ect.

 

As for him saying India should beat Pakistan in ct final that was something should have true considering how both team have performed across the 3 different formats the past few years.

You said “ no one cares for “ in reference to that 2003 /04 series . Your hate for bhaji is so much that you willing to slag of great Indian achievements in your hate agenda . Sad really 

 

listen if we win in oz that makes history so of course more . But that era of oz teams were simply amazing . Up there with windies teams to be called best ever . So beating them in 2001 and drawing ( shoudl have won ) 2003 / 4 was as sweet as it gets

I just read the article, literally all he said was that India have a good chance because India has good batsman and dale steyn is returning from a 1 year long injury break. he also said that Aswhin should be an automatic and Rohit should be picked over Pandya. I can't believe people are getting worked up over it.

Let us not deflect. One simple question please point out in the interview where he said anything derogatory. I will respect you more if you come out and say that you hate him like a man.

Very jealous petty person. After Australia lost the ODI series he tweeted tagging Michael Clarke that he should come back and play for Australia because there wasn't a single good batsman in the current Aus team and that Kuldeep-Chahal had it too easy. So according to him Smith and Warner are poor batsmen !!! Similarly when we beat England in the test series last year he tagged Michael Vaughan saying that there was not a single good test batsman in England (Root, Bairstow, Cook, Stokes...) and that none of them would have played under Vaughan's reign. He downplays every single Indian spinner, earlier I thought he hated only Ashwin but now it is clear that he also hates Jadeja, Chahal, Kuldeep, everybody.
 
The comedy part is that under current rules he would be called for chucking, guy cheated his way to 400 wickets (I know it is a harsh word but I have hated chuckers after what Senanayake did to us in 2014 WT20 F) helped by Ganguly's biased captaincy and Kumble's gentlemanly nature. I also read somewhere that when Ashwin first came to our team Bhajji ignored him and made him feel isolated from the group, that he used his influence to sideline Ashwin from team meetings, net sessions etc. Ashwin was graceful enough to acknowledge Bhajji's achievements and call him his idol after all this.....he could have escalated the situation when Bhajji constantly downplayed Ashwin during his historic 2015-16 seasons which according to me is one of the greatest peaks in bowling history. Now I can't vouch for the above happenings but it isn't beyond Bhajji to do something like this and remember how well his sphere of influence (players, media, sponsors, experts...) was in the 2011-12 period. 
 
Bhajji may have had great skills in his peak years but he is an insecure self preserving coward. Don't forget how he ran away when he saw a green top in 2004 Nagpur or how he developed mysterious stomach cramps after going for 0/200 in Lord's 2011, even the team physio couldn't diagnose his ailment then. Same behavior you can see when he plays for MI or Punjab Ranji team, he underbowls himself when the going is tough and only bowls when the threat level is low. Guys like Kumble and Ashwin are different, they don't mind getting humiliated by rampant batsmen but they never run away from any challenge, even in the worst of times take beatings like proper men. 


Perfectly written. Bhajji also backed away in WT20 2007 final when he was hit sixes by Misbah in his 3rd over. Dhoni was forced to give ball to Joginder Sharma because Bhaaji did not agree to bowl the final over fearing that if he lost it for India, he will be bashed by fans and media. He selectively plays Ranji, enjoyed the company of Kumble and got most of his wickets during that time. He could not take over from Kumble and was dropped within 3-4 years.

First point I agree with. This is the strongest India has been and SA is not that strong. India should win.

 

I would personally not say that Ashwin and Jadeja have it easy but there indeed has been a push to get turners for touring teams. Ashwin + Jadeja combination << Kumble + Harbhajan

 

India should have beaten Pakistan. That was the worst display ever by India. Sheet happens. I still cant get over it.

 

I disagree with him on downplaying the opposition. 

 

His biggest mistake is that he is holding on to the common belief that other cricket teams are weak. He is wrong on that account as Indian team is very strong. Two different things.

how is this the strongest India. Indian team in 2006 and 2010 were strongest with few of our greatest test batsmen ever, our greatest keeper/bat in Dhoni, one of our greatest fast bowlers in Zak.

I t is no brainer for me to take him over Ashwin in CT 2017. No contest.

 

He does not underbowl for MI. He balls whenever he is asked to and is as economical a spinner as anyone can be. He would have had more wickets but most of the time he was bowling in tandem with Anil. Ashwin was the lone spinner most of the time. Give Bhajji some credit. He took lot of wickets.

 

His slapping Sreesanth cannot be condoned. That was the only blemish on his career.

 

And once again stick to the topic and tell me what did bhajji say in the interview that is so controversial.

He underbowled himself when he was captain of MI and Punjab. 

 

I am basing my observations on Bhajji based on his past statements and his twitter activity. I also never downplayed his record, just his attitude irks me.

Exact quotes that irked you on Twitter . Let’s see if you spining them and taking meanings from them to suit your agenda . Also in general note you agreed with me that ex players all toeing line and not being critical at all of team , now you hammering anyone who does  ( not that bhaji does ) . I want people to say what they genuinely think . 

 

So ? Bowler skippers do this . Try not to hog limelight , give others a go , not be selfish and only bowl

 

but haters will be haters . Will spin in it there way to hate . If Bowled lots more and bowled in all key moments would have been accused of being selfish , over bowling himself and bowling in all key moments to hog matters and trying to take glory . Can’t win can he lol

 

ps on Mumbai ipl bakwaas. No idea and don’t care . Ipl ffs lool

I am not into nostalgia and stuff but these top five bats are every bit as good as those fab 4. Bowling is upgrade. Fielding is better and the only weaklnk is wkt keeping.

Don’t agree there . That batting line up is yet to prove as good as fab 4 . They may prove after 2018 they are as good but right now question marks over all of them bar kohl 

 

I hope after 2018 I can agree with you and say They maybe better

Insecure people can't take the sudden loss of attention when dropped or after retirement. They keep taking opportunities to be in limelight.  Bhajji, Sehwag, Ravi Shastri, Sunil Gavaskar , Bedi, Dhoni and to some extent Gambhir fall into this category.

 

Secure people are happy with their accomplishment and want to live outside of limelight and want to be guiding forces for youngsters. Dravid, Kumble, Ganguly, Kapil Dev, VVSL, GR Vishwanath fall into this category.

He is popular and sought after. This was an interview and he gave an opinion. Last I remember Vishwamath was camera shy and never gave any interview.

If anything Bhajji is far from insecure.

So you want all ex players to say no real opinions . Be bland . Back the team . Generous in praise of opposition . Bore pants of us and behave like Sachin the pundit 

 

as if an ex player goes out to give real hard opinions . Maybe make things interesting. Tell it how it is even if upsets team and managt and bcci , they are selfish , attention seeking. 

 

Pathetic no opinion  media on team is issue that drives me mad

unfair to make it sound as an act of cowardiness - misbah was playing hi reallywell and he wud have been feeling the pressureof screwing up the final . Now  at that stage if ur honest enough with capatain that u dnt wanna put nations hope to rest its good. 

 

Although i think he didran away from eng tour in 2011

 

i think it was his attitude in the end which got better of him, somehow gave me the impression that he got to much in to the comfort zone thinking he has no competition. Apne aapko zarurat se zyaada mahaan samjhna bhi acha nhin

Again mocked aus after we won first 3 odis that its gonna be whitewash, aus has no spirit. And we lost the next game.

No we didn't lost because of him. All I'm saying is that this brings embarrassment when things goes 180 degree opposite of what he says.

Wasn't sehwag left with humble pies after his baap-beta-pota comment in repeat mode?

As a former cricketer you are not supposed to behave like social media fans, & ridicule and mock the opposition.

so next time should praise oppo to max . Then you will moan that bhaji is traitor to country and not supporting the team . 

 

Jeez grow up . Can we let ex players please give cricket opinions . Hopefully no holds barred and what they think . Otherwise they will all be as boring a pundit as my man Sachin lol

I am not one of those who calls Bhajji a chicken or coward...I really think he played the game with passion when he was part of the team...gave a 100% wether in form or not.I really liked his on field attitude in his playing days.

 

However what I did not like about him or the matter of fact even Gambhir of whom I was a big fan of ,was their attitude like they are entitled. They moaned,bitched,whined about everyone and everything instead of working on their game or reflecting on what went wrong .

 

I know some of you don’t care about IPL but Atleast Gambhir plays it with a passion and cares about it for all the moolah he makes but with Bhajji it looks like he doesn’t even try..,yeah it is cool to say he doesn’t care about IPL circus but if you are just winging it when you are getting payed a lot of money it means you are just an unprofessional jerk.

 

Luckily for us they didn’t  have the political clout to hold down spots of other youngsters like Dhoni is doing otherwise we would have been screwed even more

He probably cares about the money and the after parties but he barely completes his quota of overs, sometimes even just 2 overs...bats at 8-9 especially these days when Mi batting depth has improved and there are better hitters in the lower middle order and he is definetely no Jonty Rhodes that he is playing solely on fielding ability.

still fit and doing well . Just like many his time at elite level was over , dropped and others came and took chances and so over for him . Not sure why getting slammed for not getting back any team . That’s what happens since dawn of time , you get old and lose it , others step in and it’s over at international level

Glad you put probably in .... as basically your massive guesses . 

 

Ps always been a good pro never heard of major off field issues . In India we struggle to understand white line fever . Players who when step over line behave in very aggressive different way to normal life . We want everyone to behave like Sachin , Dravid . Probably why no one says a peep about pujara as he reminds people of the old school boring , sorry meant model pro. types

I think over the years Mi has lost some faith in him, he is still hesitant to bowl in PP whereas young spinners are doing that and then the need for having a wrist spinner which is why karn was given importance to. His fitness has also dropped and he has become really slow on field .

Lol as if there is no middle ground.

You expect cricket experts to either go overboard in praising or ridiculing. Fine.

But I prefer balanced analysis from a former cricketer not beta-pota type boasting, atleast not before the series gets over.

The OP surely seems like a typical Bhajji hater, some other posters also got sucked into this bull crap....I like Bhajji's fighting attitude 

Here...eat this you haters :wp2:

 

Ashwin never was the spirited individual Bhajji was.

Thread isn't just because of one recent interview

 

its the general trend im talking about 

 

he he always throws in a line or 2 like this in a more comprehensive interview

 

if its happening every time then it's a pattern and intentional 

i guess it is 'coz he feels he is/was an individual superstar a la sachin/sehwag/yuvi/dhoni/kohli and never got the audulation or recognition that he felt he "deserved"..maybe, there was a "shot at captaincy" angle too ( much like ashwin now)

Again a dig at Ashwin as if bhajji used to roll over England and Australia in away Tests 

There is a fine line between digs and calling it as he sees it. Ashwin has been utter crap for almost a year plus. Except for ICF, his family and his dog I have no clue who supports this bowling.
