I thought that the 6 page long Grievances thread was in order to ensure civil discourse in the future, many of us are trying to post in accordance with the new guidelines enforced by the admins here. 

dude its unfortunate that you think crying about a game is ok.

Bro I was 9-10 years old when that match happened and it was the first time in my life I was passionate about any sports team. If someone as legendary/Godlike as Federer can cry over a result at the age of 36 I am sure a 9 year old's behavior doesn't warrant scrutiny.

If any ICFer has noticed one trait about me in this forum, it is that I hardly post comments of dissapointment/anger if India loses big games or any other games, thanks to 2011 4-0 drubbing in England, before that series I was as naive/emotional as an Indian fan could be but after that thrashing I was a different person totally.

2012 AC when we got embarassed by those minnows Bangladesh because of one tuk tuk guy and his milestone... He sacrificed INDIA that day for himself.

 

Lost all the respect for the man. 

My condolences. Thankfully the great MSD avenged that defeat on our next tour to Bangladesh with a hard hitting knock that helped us win the series. Oh wait...

96 semis

2003 finals

they were the most painful just like everyone because of young age. After 2003-04, our team has been good overall and I decided to just cherish the victories and not get much affected by the losses...

Another painful memory was an ODI against SA in Eden Gardens, 2005. I was watching that match live in the stadium and we were massacred, a 10 wicket victory for the Saffers and Graeme Smith murdered our bowlers. It was just a bilateral but the behavior of the crowd (peak Dada-Chappell fallout saga) disgusted me. Indian players were booed relentlessly and for SA it was more than a home game. Dravid got the worst treatment in both the innings. Dravid had scored match winning twin 100s against Pak just a few months back at the same venue to become a hero...so to see Kolkata crowd bay for his blood was uncomfortable viewing. News channels and papers didn't mention the full story...not just were our players booed/Saffers cheered but Indian outfielders were also abused in the filthiest manner possible. Indian flag was disrespected, chairs were damaged, washroom doors were destroyed, there were fights between groups after the match...horrible horrible experience. And security personnel seemed to enjoy the tamasha, they were complicit in the hooliganism. Seen quite a few matches in Indian stadiums but nothing can top that bitter experience.

Like the way you totally skipped the 3rd match in that tour. Dhoni Scored 69 :giggle: in 3rd match and India won by 77 runs.

 

Next Asia Cup we were in finals when Dhoni played and we crushed those minnows BD in finals :giggle:

 

 

Unlike 10du who tuk tuked even in World cup and choked his whole team

 

2007 WC against BD - 7(26):facepalm:

whenever saeed anwar, jaysuria, chandepaul batted against us 

In the 90's we were owned by lot of teams in fact the tri series in 2000 in Australia was humiliating only won 1 game against Pakistan on that tour after that we lost 0-2 to South Africa at home.

Tendulkar did not start playing in 99.  he played from 10 years before that and had great moments on the field.

Apart from the Natwest series in 2002, I can't remember any multi-nation tournament final we won between 99-07.

In 98 we won the last time in the finals against Zimbabwe where Sachin smashed Olanga.

Most painful was 2003 WC final, 

That ridiculous "ane do" series in 2013 where we lost to that meek Pakistai side with some foolish captaincy from  dhoni, dinda opening the bowling for us :cantstop:

and last one is the series lost to Bangladesh :wall: in 2015, Fool dhoni became the only indian captain to loose a series vs Bangladesh :hysterical:  

these 3 things are most painful for me.

how was 2003 most painful? reaching final was a great achievement there.  We did not expect us to beat Australia. For me, 2003 WC was one of the best tournament ever for India even better than 2011 despite winning it. I rate reaching 2003 WC final higher than 2011 WC win in our cricketing achievements.

This. 2011 team was lucky it didn't come up against any opponent even close to the might of 2003 Aus. We barely scraped through an ordinary Aus team in Motera, against 2003 Aus that would have been a massacre.

We needed 16 runs to win match against Pak and as soon as Sachin got out we lost 6 wickets. That was an era where Indian team was entirely dependent on Sachin. The time when many bowlers targeted only one wicket. 

 

The next worst imo was Indian losing to SL in WC semis.

 

Third worst was Pak beating us in CT 2017 finals.

In 2003, the only team we lost to was Aus. In 2011, at home, we lost to SA, tied with England.  Struggled against Pak and Aus.  Our campaign was scratchy and we were expected to win the WC from ball one as we had the best team for those conditions.  In 2003, we thrashed every team bar Aussies on our way to finals that too overseas.  We never had a better overseas tournament before that.

Even I was very disappointed with the 2003 F but now looking back it was a peak too high to scale. Had Aussies had an off day (like WI 1983) may be there was a puncher's chance, but they played their normal cricket in the F...such a mentally tough team !!!!!

 

Remember the TVS tri series later that year, Ind-Aus-NZ. Aus came in with a 2nd string bowling attack (Ian Harvey, Brad Williams, rookie Bracken etc...no Mcgrath/Brett Lee/Hogg) and still pwned us on our turf as if we were nothing...won 4 out of the 5 H2H encounters including the F. We couldn't chase 235 against Bichel/Bracken/Brad Williams/Harvey/Symonds/Clarke in Kolkata, how could we have ever chased 360 in Jo'berg against Mcgrath/Lee/Bichel/Hogg?

Yes that bowling attack was one of the best ever with two of ODI ATGs in McGrath and Brett Lee. Gillespie and Hogg were just a notch below. Our only chance was to take advantage of new ball as pitch had something in it for seamers early on.  Ball did move early but our pacers' nerves were wrecked.
