    I have been following their story and they were advertising a lot earlier how hard it was for the team to participate in the event as they lacked the funds and the government support. They even had funding account and asked people t donate and they did get lot of help from the public later. Even Sehwag was tweeting about them. Well guess what, they have finally won their first game. This is a beautiful story. This is brilliant by the Hockey team. With not much facilities, hockey can be a really tough sport and in particular Ice Hockey. Hopefully, they get more support in the future. http://www.thenewsminute.com/article/big-moment-womens-ice-hockey-india-team-registers-first-international-win-58365

    Fast bowlers bowling in test matches need to be "bullheaded" to keep bowling fast. This is even more true for the quick bowlers from the sub-continent to keep running in and bowling fast in hot weather and unresponsive pitches. Add to that the risk of getting injured. No wonder some promising quicks turn into trundlers after few gruelling seasons in domestic cricket.

    We have been hilaing the Duniya in every IPL. This year too will be no exception. Captain Rohit is getting vital rest to get ready for the big challenge of IPL.

    This is so much fun!!!

    I am addicted to test cricket now after tearing my head for so many years when we were lead by a certain someone. Kohli's captaincy is a refreshing change and this team feels different. In ODIs and T20s we are still playing has beens and the flat pitches and 40 m boundaries don't help.... Hope we play 15 tests every year and less of boring bilateral LOIs.

    Hope Dhoni isn't jealous of the new wave of success Kohli's team is enjoying after he chickened out in Australia.

    Yeah this team under Kohli has shown some great characteristics after gut wrenching losses. It's not easy to come back in a series after being down 0-1 and we have only done it thrice in history if i recall.

    politics is everywhere in Indian cricket at domestic level. Look at Himanshu Rakheja. He was quickest junior bowler in BCCI fast bowlers hunt and now is clocking up 148K in his own nets. He imported a speed gun from US to measure his speed. He has gone for all the trials in Haryana, has done well but still not being picked due to politics. They are happy playing 125KPH trundlers in Jogi, Pahal and Ashish Hooda.

    It's amazing to read the views of Aussies. So let's consider it's a one off incident. Do you guys really think that Smith had a "Brain Fade"? And what was Handscombe having? Another "Brain Fade". So collective brain fades? The actions didn't appeared to be brain fade. Handscombe was actually surprised that his captain is not using the "facilities available". He was like, "Smudgy if you can't decide then why don't you ask them buggers, like we always do". I mean from where did Handscombe got this brilliant idea to suggest his captain to take help?

    Aussie team are just leaking this to the media to try and deflect attention. It's crass and immature but what do you expect when their coach is Lehmann and their captain Smith. Theyve sunk low enough to resort to using trashy tabloids as their mouthpieces. Sad, how the mighty cheats have fallen.

    It all depends on fast bowling culture in a country. We are seeing fast bowling culture setting in very strongly in the last 4 years or so in India..... more and more young pacers in domestic cricket and U19 level are bowling with effort, hitting the deck hard while bowling, gymming regularly and wanting to bowl quick. As a result, there are atleast 20 pacers bowling quick in India now. Out of that lot, quite a few are skilled bowlers too.

    Are we talking about Chris Broad here? Because if we are, its completely justified. The % of conviction white vs other players get when he is the match referee is on record

    I can just picture this team under dhoni, if we lost the first test in pune and batted horribly in the first innings of 2nd test under him then by the second day the shoulders of all the players would've dropped, the body language of our fast bowlers would've been shyte, the match would have drifted away, wade would have scored a century and starc would've scored a quick fire 50, Australia would've scored 450+ and we would've meekly given up in the second innings and got bowled out for 150-200. Then dhoni would come to the press conference and throw our fast bowlers under the bus and talked about the "process" Man, kohli is such an awesome change from the days of captain uncool

    Ozzie papers running with it doesnt mean its right.. For all we know. .Kumble might have gone to their office to Invite them for dinner at the end of the match.. Banglore is his hometown.

    Mate, I don't get the Indian-Pakistan thing, I know you've been at a semi state of war for some reason since whenever, but there are a lot of both mobs in Australia, and from what I've seen there 's been zero conflict, lots of both mobs play club cricket, lots umpire, as I said I feel sorry for both your countries indigenous hatred towards one another, it's just sad. We welcome everyone in Australia, just don't bring your bias with you.

    What I don't understand is how are so many players getting injured after the match. They all seem to be very fine during the match. Starc final spell was the fastest in the entire series and he couldn't have bowled that fast if he was injured
  37. 2 points
    Oh my god feels sad for starc as he is one of my favorite !!! We have to be very careful with umesh and shami as this genuine quick guys are liable to injuries we as a fan often don't realised huge efforts this guys p puts on

    Asif was a big miss for Pakistan and Amir 2.0 isn't half as good as 2010 Amir. Pak bowling could have potentially competed with RSA and Aus but are presently very mediocre. They are now generating trundlers like no other previous Pak team had ever done. In fact they aren't even producing equivalents of Gul, Rana Naved, Aaqib etc. Junaid was very promising initially but look what he has become today. May be with the shift to UAE they may never produce great quicks like they used to but instead give great spinners. They are becoming like India of old while India has turned the table dramatically. We have a good set of quicks and a culture of fast bowling is sweeping the youth like never before. Thankfully that is not at the cost of spinners. We luckily have good spin back up options like Jayant, Kuldeep, etc but fear they may be unable to break into the team the way Sir and ATGwin are going.

    2017 Elections Thread

    My predictions: UP - BJP (simple majority) Goa - BJP (simple majority) Uk - BJP (simple majority) Manipur - Hung assembly. BJP (single largest party) Punjab - Hung assembly. INC (single largest party) UP is the semi-final for 2019 but Punjab is what worries me the most, being a border state and all. Hence why I hope for a hung assembly with President's rule for a few months.

    I am surprised how the on-field umpire gave Kohli out ! There was no way he could have been certain that it was pad first...... and the benefit of the doubt goes to the batsman.

    Unlikely. All VK needs to do is point to the umpires and ask them to testify that he notified them of his suspicions prior to the Steve Smith dismissal. VK kept his allegations private until there was public evidence confirming his complaint - the smith dismissal. Actually, he kept his allegations private until Smith dismissed the entire thing as a "one-off brain fade". Only way Virat would be in trouble is if he in fact did not notify the umpires. In which case, I don't think he'd be stupid enough to claim he did so, in an official post match press conference. The only other thing VK could be on the hook for, is excessive sledging during the game. Look, both boards are more interested in making money, and a drawn out investigation embarrassing Australia does not benefit the BCCI financially. But having them owe a favor to the BCCI does. Simple as that.

    Definitely, yes in LOIs. In World Cup 2015, Umesh and Shami were among the top 5 wicket takers. Player Matches Wickets Avg. 1. M Starc 8 22 10.18 2. T Boult 8 22 16.86 3. U Yadav 8 17 17.83 4. M Shami 7 17 17.29 5. M Morkel 8 17 17.58 Mohit Sharma also did well, picking 13 wickets in 8 matches at an average of 24. In fact, India was the only side to bowl out the opposition in all 7 games before the Semi Final. Indian bowlers have also been important in winning Champions Trophy in 2013 and reaching Semi Final and Final of World T20 and contributed to India being a top ranked side and to be consistent particularly in ODIs. As far as tests are concerned, Shami has done decently since his debut. Ishant and Umesh have improved a lot but they havent won test matches on their own. Ishant did really well in Lord's test and in Sri Lanka series and Shami was splendid in his debut test but apart from that, they were good in parts but none of the other performances really stand out. Compared to other Asian test teams, I would say they are better because other teams havent done great either but not by much. To be considered actually good, they need to help win test matches. Its high time they do that on their next tours of SA, Eng, Aus or NZ where they could get conditions helpful to them because they have enough experience in their conditions and have played enough games in their career as well. Good thing about Indian seam bowling is they seem to be on an upward curve. More bowlers are clocking upwards of 140 and bowling more consistent line and length for longer spells when in previous decades, it was the not the same case. I could see India produce a good pool of fast bowlers within the next 5 years or so who will be really helpful in away tours because that's always been our problem area(picking 20 wickets in away tests).

    Smoking is quite an old thing. In villages in UP, you will find a lot of old women smoking small hookas or bidis. It is nothing new. In fact, that practice of women smoking is steadily fading away when it comes to villages. My paternal and maternal grandmother who lived in village both smoked. It is just that new generation thinks, it is something new or empowering for girls.
