1st Test : India Tour of SA | Newlands,Cape Town | 5th Jan 2:00 PM IST

Recommended Posts

So, Philander on a hat-trick now?

 

Congrats to SA!  Kudos to India for showing sparks of what is possible - bowling the opposition out for 130 and tail wagging with some pride.  On to Test 2!

Knew Kohli will fail.

Zero expectation from Rohit and Dhawan.

Despite loads of runs in terms of average, I allways noticed Murali is more of a toss of coin.

Our bowlers gave away too many easy runs.

Great play from Pandya.

Kudos to ABDV for both inning.

Match ka Mujrim: Kohli and Shashtri.

Terrible batting. Pitch wasn't unplayable at all. 

 

It was expected though, especially considering India's miserable overseas record. 

Better better than a.hole bd players..who cant play in sub continent also...

If India needs  to comeback in this series,  then Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma need to be kept away from test side As far as possible. 

 

Also , Kohli and Shastri should take the flak for going into first test with no preparation due to extended baraat . I guess the baraat processions continued with the top order batters in both innings.

Ind lost in the 1st innings when they let saffers go from 12/3 to 280 odd 

Bhai, ABDV is a genious. If you would have watched the game you will se that he went after Bhuvi and totally changed the complexion of game.

Reeling at 100-7 in both innings is unacceptable. 

 

208 was a nothing target considering we had 2 whole days to chase it 

Exactly. 2 days. Was south africa bowling g exceptionally good?

To India's credit, we gave it a bit of a fight with Ashwin and Bhuvi and outscored them in the 2nd innings.

 

But we are simply not equipped to compete with South Africa in South Africa. In tests matches, at least.

I dont know which cricket your watched ,game was pretty even even with the 3 effective batsmen we had.

A few changes in next game in batting would help us immensly,but kohli is stubborn and might loose it all playing his buddies.

What a shame..Now we valuw what a gem were they ....Sachin,Dravid,Laxman,Ganguly who batted through their life on these kind of wickets..Law of averages playing their part..its all about an India loss overseas..Good batting those days hauled weak bowling.Today when we have our bowlers doing their job its the chuddy batsmen who let us  down

Another overseas test, another chokefest from our hopeless batters led by captain AWOL himself. The 2 batsmen who could have scored runs and bailed us out in this low scoring match made a grand total of zero runs  because they were warming the bench instead of being in the middle. No worries,the BCCI will conjure up a series against the inept west Indies to boost the fragile egos and averages of these pampered brats.

Part of me want India to stop making these cringe worthy ads. It gives them nothing but humiliation. First it was "ane do" series and now this ridiculous '' 25 salka badla " series. 
 
Don't think the outcome of the "badla" series will be any different from the "ane do" series. :facepalm:
You forget the lagaan series of 2011,followed by Australia ka band in 2012,followed by angrezo ki pungi, followed by aane do, pancho need proper chhitroll who ever make these ads, ends up humiliating the team even more.
