    Project Rohit Sharma

    The untold story of BCCI's top secret project to rule the world Many people today are baffled by the affinity shown by BCCI, the captain, the coach, ex players, current players and many others seemingly sane people, towards Rohit Sharma. Those in the know reveal this exclusive, never told before story BCCI's goal plans Phase 1 - Include Rohit Sharma in the team Phase 2 - ????? Phase 3 - Profit!!!! So why is Rohit Sharma included in the team? Here are some reasons experts tell us 1) Rohit Sharma is like the chaff air-force planes deployed during world war 2 to distract heat seeking missiles from other planes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaff_(countermeasure) So while the opposition is baffled and focused on Sharma(he seems useless but is selected every time, why? There is some secret, some strategy, we need to find out. Let focus on Rohit Sharma) , other batsmen like Rahane can slip through the radar. The opposition thinks Sharma might be important and targets him and neglects other batsmen 2) Rohit Sharma is the next level evolution of a "batsman" Cricket has often been called the "batsman's game". And modern cricket is even more so. So what did scientists do to counter this dis-balance? They genetically engineered the batsmen who always loses to bowlers. It doesn't matter what kind of bowler it is. Pace bowlers. Swing bowlers. China-man. Part time bowlers. This batsman is designed to fail. To prevent bowlers from going extinct, scientists have designed the batsman who boosts bowler's confidence 3) Rohit Sharma is the "Judas goat" of batsmen who leads other FTB batsmen to their doom A judas goat is basically a trained goat (or other animal) which will lead the hunter to other members of his species. So the other animals get killed and the judas goat is rewarded. Rohit Sharma is the epitome and the prototype of the FTB who fails everywhere. So any batsman who follows him or bats like him can be identified and immediately terminated 4) Rohit Sharma is a trained commando on the field to protect other players This is self explanatory. Rohit Sharma is obviously not a cricket player. Then why is he on the field? Well considering that India is the richest cricketing country and the super star cricketers always a target of criminals or terrorists, we need extra protection for all the players. What better protection than a super commando, disguised as a player, who is on the field at all times? Rohit Sharma might not score many runs, but if any terrorist attempts to harm any player on the field, he can take them out with his bare hands 5) Rohit Sharma is an advertisement come to life This is the most likely explanation according to experts. Big companies first advertised on the radio. Then they advertised with flyers. Then they advertised on bill boards. Then they moved to TV. They finally created an artificial life which can go on the field and pretend to be a player. So Rohit Sharma is just an AI actor who needs to be on the field at all times displaying sponsor logos. He is just like the advertisement logos you see on the ground after each over They started with this And have now gone on to this Has technology and advertisement gone too far? Can ad-blocks block Rohit Sharma from showing up on my TV? Will more genuine players be replaced by walking advertisements? Only time will tell!

    Kohli is a fighter

    Kohli is a fighter and he will fight his way out of this poor run since Antigua. He has great character and he will eventually triumph. The question is what is the approach he is going to take, swashbuckle or submit and surrender and play carefully like SRT @ Sydney

    MSD standard dialog at the toss: "No changes, We are playing the same 11" Aren't we glad that the Mule like stubborn thingy is over. Kumble and Kohli are (50%) playing horses-for-courses. 50% - still some ways to go, but at least 50%. There are a few stubborn things like S. Dhawan and R. Sharma - but hopefully those things in the 11 will change too.

    Harbhajan mocking Ashwin?

    source “Alas, had we bowled on such wickets” Harbhajan Singh believes that Ashwin gets a “lot of favour” from the pitch curators, something which he did not receive in his prime. The Turbanator also stressed on the importance of maintaining the balance between the bat and the ball, and said that conditions should never be the deciding factor.

    M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story

    I am one of the critics of his captaincy but can't deny his story is of a champion. His struggles and how he bounced back from abysmal lows in his life are something that are needed to be told. About the movie I really loved first half and second half is a bit dragged like his batting these days but we can give the guy 30 minutes. Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    I am also looking at a player like Saha. 32 and has played two crucial innings batting at 7.Lets be frank he is not going to break into team India in the LOI. So why dont the BCCI say to Saha, play only test cricket and we will pay you 2 crore per year for say another 4 years plus the match fees. This way Saha can concentrate on a country stint.

    M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story

    Watched it today and man must say it's one of the best sports movies and the best cricket movie ever made. Should be a must watch for every Indian cricket fan. The first half of the movie sums up the struggles of a newbie, and especially someone coming up without any backing or from a non-major cricketing centre, to a nicety.

    Harbhajan mocking Ashwin?

    Lol, some of the wickets he bowled on were extremely conducive to spin and bounce. The guy got a ton of attitude after being successful and that resulted in his downfall. He took his place in the team for granted Also he was amazing till he was support bowler to Kumble. As soon as he became the lead spinner, his performance declined

    Kohli is a fighter

    Any coincidence that Kohli's poor run of form recently has coincided with Maggi being in the team? The moment Kohli undeservedly dropped Vijay for Maggi is the game Kohli's struggles started. Before that he scored a 200. Solution: Drop the undeserving Rohit and VK will be back amongst the runs

    The saying goes that .....pacers hunt in pairs. Today, we saw both Shami and Bhuvi create pressure from both ends. Bhuvi ended up picking the wickets ....and this pressure from both ends is very important. The batsman feels totally overwhelmed and is bound to make a mistake.

    India conducts Surgical Strikes Along The LOC

    Why are we wasting time debating if strikes happened or not? Army has officially said this. Now if the cowards in Pak don't want to accept it because they have to accept existence of terrorists and/or even take counter action if they take it as an attack on Pak army, it is their problem Ind has put Pak in a weird position. And Pak usually tries to get out of it (without success) through denial (OBL case for example) Surgical strikes are nothing new in Pak. US has used drones too.

    1.There is no 'established background'. He was legally tried and exonerated by the Justice system. 2. Sorry, what 'staged' stuff ? Or are you going once again by Pakistani reports that has been established to be far poorer in quality than Indian ones? I hope you are not from the Islamic alternate-universe of illogic that '9/11 was done by jews/americans' type of nut job stuff. 3. You can only laugh because perhaps you cannot read English and apparently there is a difference between 'Indian authorities said they did xyz' and 'Russian authorities said they did xyz' in your mind. 4. Our army is far more trustworthy than yours. Everyone acknowledges this when they call india a responsible power and Pakistan an unstable and unreliable one.

    Its important for somebody like Che who does not have an IPL team to feel well paid. Other test players like Murli too might be in the same boat soon. India IMO needs more classic test players like Che Murli Rahane etc. I would go one step further and make the central contract for test players 2 crore. + fees. If test only players can get about 2-4 crore a year then its a profession worth taking up in comparison to T20 and Odis If Che feels he is well paid IMO he might aim to just concentrate on tests and even take up offers to play overseas during the IPL.

    That is the diplomatic lingo. Haven't you been watching Syria ? Its all about 'US Claims Russia strikes in Aleppo, Russia denies'. Doesn't mean that they don't recognize the fact, it means that OFFICIALLY, aka DIPLOMATICALLY, it is not a fact unless it has bipartisan confirmation. Oh right, i forgot- they don't teach law in Pakistan. FYI, we here is a Wall street journal link for you: http://www.wsj.com/articles/india-says-it-hit-terrorist-bases-in-pakistan-controlled-kashmir-with-strikes-1475135558 Again, i will remind you: This is Indian military we are talking about. Not politicians. Our military is a professional force, that doesnt fabricate claims of incidents that never happened. This isn't Pakistani military who claim they are winning 24 hours before surrender. It is in the interest of your military to deny the whole thing. And we are fine with it too!

    Good initiative. Seems like pretty high number. Even if India play 15 tests per years that like 3 5 matches series which obviously do. That's like 2.25 crore per year for a regular players.

    Pakistani are shouting and running around like chickens with their heads cut off. On one side they are busy trying to deny and mock India's public statement on the strike. On another, they are crowing about a captured soldier and vowing revenge. If there was no strike, why is Nawaz Sharif holding an emergency meetings with military and opposition parties. Clearly something big went down, but Pakistani "awaam" are so used to being lied to by their government and military, its like an addict craving another hit. Reality is, Indian army went public about something that happens all the time - so-called Border action teams often do "aggressive patrolling" and there is a lot of tit-for-tat going on at the LOC. But this is the first time, that the scale of the raid was amped up. And the first time Indian govt went public about it. Its a big time game-changer in what Pakistan can expect in future occurences of "non-state" actions. Not to mention a public pants-ing of their glorious Baghdad Bob army.

    LOI affecting Indian batting?

    Didnt our test specialist struggle in overseas Didnt kohli score around an avg of 70 in Sa,Nz & Aus which many legend dnt even possess Didnt the Odi specialist Dhawan score heavily in NZ , where Vijay failed All this winning after few innings has to stop, Players will fail somewere or other. This has happened to our legends to. Someone like Pujara Excel at home conditions becoz he plays a lot domestic cricket side by side due to not being selected for Odi. Someone like Kohli, rahane is terrific in overseas coz they travel a lot n regularly so they have become use to those pitches really quickly.

    LOI affecting Indian batting?

    Except Kohli and Rahane, we should have entirely different sets of batsmen for Tests and ODIs. I've been advocating this for a while.. Throw Dhawan and Rohit out of the test squad.. Get in Mukund and Amit Mishra and play 5 bowlers Playing XI should be: Mukund, Vijay, Pujara, Kohli, Rahane, Ashwin, Saha, two of Jaddu/Mishra/Bhuvi, Shami, Umesh

    So glad to see Bhuvi come good. Doubters will always want their phhaaasssshhhhttttt bowlers like Mr Spearhead who give no returns in the team. But those who truly appreciate the nuances of cricket will know that bowlers like Bhuvi are rare finds. He keeps chugging at the batsman on the right line and length and moves the ball just enough to beat the batsman or get the edge. Here's a bowler that truly deserves his chances. Sorry phassshttt bowler lovers, your love for speed guns doesn't always translate into wickets.
