Talking about clueless, I found this gem you posted 9 years ago in a thread about greatest Indian batsman:-


 

 

 

 

:hysterical::hysterical::hysterical::hysterical::hysterical::hysterical::hysterical:  Tendulkar below sehwag  and laxman, now that is CLUELESS :finger:

Thanks . Brings back some good old memories . 

Tendulakr was great at scoring 100s , not much for India though .

lol dada is putting sanju manju in his place by shutting down each of his analysis, dada is doing public service by exposing sanju's lack of cricketing knowledge, this charlatan has fooled the world for too long

can you highlight some points

It's subtle, the expressions ganguly is making when manju is talking is hilarious, also whenever manju says something ganguly says the opposite of that, for example manju said pujju is playing everything on front foot and nothing on the back foot which is a problem and ganguly replies that if you look at the lengths of the deliveries bowled he couldn't have played anything on the backfoot, he had to play it on the front foot

Ganguly in his usual cocky self praising everything that happened under his captaincy as the greatest thing ever and everything else as crap. But still loving that Sanju is being shut, he sucks.

He was blabbering about Sachin suddenly playing the CB series and how that lifted the team or something like that and how Sehwag/Gambhir accomodated for him as an opener or something like that Ganguly just cut him of and disagreed with that moron.

He also said something like pre Ganguly pitches were difficult in England but during the Dada’s time pitches became bit comfortable or something.I could be wrong regarding this point but Dada kept cutting him off he might punch him one day.

he adds nothing else , if he can’t bat then it is better a youngster comes into the team.

The problem is Rahul is awful too , he is not old.

How did batting in engurlund become so difficult in this decade? I don't remember  sachin, dravid, laxman struggling so much in england in the last decade, heck even ganguly averages 60 in england

their bowling was pretty average back then.

While I agree with you Ganguly goes overboard with his captaincy but he’s miles better than Manjrekar who just runs his mouth like an idiot and has some inferiority complex regarding India doing well.Manju should be nowhere near Indian games.

in these conditions, cant expect a lot from openers, any opener who may that be against likes of Anderson. He was bowling very much like fast leg breaks today.

It is average even now, besides anderson there is no star bowler, broad is out of form and if you give wickets to a newbie like curran then it is the batting's fault. I don't think it is just about bowling being average

Yup , KL has been disappointing . 

This series could turn ugly very soon . All three openers look poor .

Pujara is not going to make a difference , he just dsnot have the skills . We are left with Virat and  Rahane to support him ? 

Karun nairs technique for swining conditions is poor as well and hes not top order nayway for loner format .

Yup and they where dishing out relatively flat pitches back then . FTBs like MoYo , Inzy and YK scored truck loads of runs .

IIRC Pakistan played a series in 2009/10 , it was swinging  like nothing I had seen in Eng before and its been that way since then .

Should have reversed the batting order.

Reverse batting order never works, dumbest idea ever, our tail won't survive 10 balls in these conditions

doesnt change the fact that he still is a failure. ganguly has said nothing wrong- he said he has done nothing in these condition. Making 5 runs more then others opener doesnt change anything, atleast those guys will save their place on past showing .....what confidence does he give

 

If i had a personal problem with him, i will question place in ODI side to which i dnt 

U think australia hasnt smashed us 300 + when kumble played

 

Ind vs aus 2003 bengaluru odi, aus made 347 and kumble eco was 6.66 in those days 

 

We had no chance with anyone, they smashed everyone even murali in 2007 WC final

Guess who is right?

 

Dhawan side by side is >>>>>>>> Vijay.

 

Like I said you post a lot with a very superficial knowledge of the game. You are a good person but you fail to synthesize sports properly. Vijay compared to Dhawan is garbage.

 

Now continue boring me with your meaningless stats.

is anderson that good? he averages 33 vs aus and nearly 30 vs sa in english conditions and aus haven't been that great this decade and sa cricket is also going through transition because of quotas.By comparison mcgrath avg 19 vs eng in eng.

Hope the one man army has another ton in bag today. We need his ton to post 200 plus.

It’s sad that the batting overseas is so fragile they struggle to reach 200 and only rely on Virat.
