    Embarrassing....need to throw up.....does Kohli even know that this guy is a convicted felon? If any of us had a friend like Amir,pretty sure our moms would by now say "don't be friends with such people...burey sangat me mat pado" or even ground us till we get better friends

    Nasser Hussain who generally puts down Indian players had this to say "England players should learn from Dravid" when he was talking about how to play swing bowling. He is probably the best i have seen in swinging conditions. He plays besides the ball instead of prodding at it.

    If Amir likes being hyped and praised by Kohli, he better start living up to his name. Just one performance against India in a match India played to lose, doesnt make him the best. All said, I like Amir, I think he has the capacity to be a good bowler. But as of now, he is a below mediocre bowler. Even Debashish Mohanty had some incredible spells in 99 WC in England. But we never considered him good.

    With so much cricket going on, most teams are trying to develop specialists for tests and LOIs, to reduce burnout and injury. With this in mind, Shami, Umesh and Ishant are being used primarily as test specialists and Bumrah, Bhuvi and Thakur as ODI specialists. All banter aside, Umesh and Shami ( and even Ishant in the last 2 years ) have been able to bowl 135 k to 145 k spells almost every time they bowl and even during the last session of a test match. They have hit high 140s when going for speed. This consistency in pace, even in test matches, has drawn a lot of appreciation from the cricketing world.

    Shreyas Iyer. Sanju Samson. Rishabh Pant. Karun Nair. Sarfraz Khan. And the latest addition to the mix, chota packet promising to be the next big dhamaka - Prithvi Shaw. All of these guys seem to have that 'it' factor when it comes to their batting. That certain something that jumps out when you watch them bat - plenty of timing, a plethora of strokes, and a willingness to take the attack to the bowlers. But take a bit of a closer look, and you can start to see telltale signs of inconsistency - a tendency to "live hard or die trying". Given the way the economic and 'popularity' incentives are stacked in favor of "modern" bats who are capable of exciting stroke-play, its not hard to see why the teenyboppers of Indian batting are all out to emulate the ABDVs and Rohit Sharmas of the world, as opposed to the Gavaskars and dare I say, even the great Sachin Tendulkar. Gone are the days where the domestic circuit prioritized, taught and honed the ability of a young batsman's ability to put a premium price on his wicket. These days, all you hear in terms of "cutting edge conventional wisdom" is the tiresome cliche of "expressing yourself" and "playing your natural game". So widespread is the epidemic in India's young ranks,, that even the normally reticent Rahul Dravid felt compelled to publicly call out some of his wards. An annoyed Dravid was quoted as dismissing all this emphasis on "natural game" as "frustrating". Dravid chose to make his point with an unusually strong choice of words. Strong words they might be, but I feel that it will be inevitably swamped by the tsunami of $$$$ that has flooded cricket since the inception of the IPL. After all, what will a young Indian cricketer aspire to be, considering the cricket circuit today - Why should he devote his energies to building his skills like say, a Murali Vijay, Che Pujara, or even an Ajinkya Rahane? When a test cricket 'failure' like Rohit Sharma is a multi-millionaire superstar IPL team captain, and gets to be a glory hogging ODI opener for the national team because of his ability to hit sixes? To some extent, this evolution of incentives and the corresponding evolution in batting is not restricted to India alone. One look at the young batsmen coming through the ranks in England and Australia will show you a markedly 'same-ness' in the ranks. James Vince. Marcus Stoinis. Chris Lynn. Glenn Maxwell. I wonder where the next Rahul Dravid will come from. Or if he will show up at all. Cricket will be poorer for it, if he doesn't.

    http://www.storypick.com/bangaluru-college-dowry/ Yes, you heard that right dowry is being justified in Indian textbooks. A Facebook post says that this a page from a B.A. student’s study material from St. Joseph’s College in Bangaluru. The student is studying Sociology and in a class of 60 people and faculty, no one opposed this. The material said, The post has gone viral with over 1200 shares in just over a day. It is scary that such things get indorsed even in textbooks. Dowry is a punishable offense under the Dowry Prohibition Act. Instead of focussing on that, out education system is teaching us this. The appalling chapter also said, See the whole post here: Image Source Netizens obviously had a lot to say about the post Image Source Although the text says that ‘according to them (supporters), these are the advantages’, it doesn’t compensate for the subtle promotion of ‘their’ point of view. Why would anyone want to study ‘Advantages of dowry’ from the point of view of their supporters? Wouldn’t it be same as a chapter on ‘Killing people have its supporters (yes, they are called cold blooded murderers). And according to them, these are the advantages of murder. Point #1: Population control: Ugly people can be killed off to maintain population growth” If this sounds outrageous to you, so should the dowry chapter. Period. ----------------------------------------------- Wow...just wow ! This is what is taught in college.

    The BSE/NSE Trading Thread

    ** i am yet to perfect this strategy i am trying to take advantage of the weekly options time decay .. sell at the money / near the money options and hedge it with outside the money options ( iron condor but i really dont remember these :p ) .. for example , if ATM options are trading for 250rs in the morning , if the net movement is less than 100pts , it might close at 210/220rs , ( we might gain 20/30 pts in shorts but lose 10-15 in our long hedges ).. we dont lose as long as the movement is less than 0.5% of BN and vix doesnt jump.. again we have to avoid trading if the premiums are less ( inseatd we can try reverse iron condor like on wednesdays/thursday the expiry day ) .. i tried this as my secondary startegy for the last 3 months and this seems to be working .. i improved/optimized my staregy a bit , but yet to perfect it.. potentially we can make 25-30k per day for 20L capital , but on worst case scenario we will lose 75k as well .. tried few other things as well in BN , but primary long stargeies doesnt work because of time decay.. i am yet to perfect this and i will try this again after result season gets over

    Alien condition for Dravid is not SL or For Sanga is not India. Alien condition for two is England, Autralia and South Africa. Dravid has 40 matches, 3166 run, averaging 46 while Sanga has 29 matches 1977 runs, averaging 43. Its scoring rate/impact of Dravid in odis which makes me feel that may be Saga may have slight edge

    India has the highest amount of air pollution related deaths in the world, at 2.5 million per year https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/environment/pollution/study-world-pollution-deadlier-than-wars-disasters-hunger/articleshow/61149195.cms And this NRI, sitting comfortably overseas, with his family and children breathing in clear air and being safe does not need to care for that. For these NRIs, Indian lives do not matter. Indians are not individuals trying to live their lives, wanting to be safe, comfortable, as individuals living peacefully. Nope, these NRIs see Indians as disposable soldiers which they can take pride on sitting safe from afar with their comfortable lives and families. Hence they look at Indians as holder of ideals, symbol of their religion, of patriotism. This is why they are comfortable calling for a war with Pakistan. They are comfortable asking Indians to choke to death over their religion. Asking them to fight for death over whether a temple or a mosque should be build. Sitting safe and comfortable with their families and children, wars, riots, pollution, nothing going to affect the NRI. So they can afford these ideals The very fact that the people cooperated is a slap on the faces of people like these. The Indians are largely a very sensible group of people. And the reason why we even exist as a country despite our multiple religions, languages, diversity and needs. Because the common Indian is focused on their day to day lives. We have survived despite our enemies. Despite people trying to divide us. And we will survive despite the lofty ideals of the NRIs who want us to fight and die and choke so that they, sitting safe far away can brag about their religion and rituals. No religion is greater than common sense and Hinduism is the prime example of a pragmatic religion. Heck even Gita talks clearly about karma over rituals but then picking and choosing what to follow has always been the way of the religious bigot

    I think currently India A will be a stronger side than the likes of Srilanka,Pakistan,WI,Bangladesh and Zim in all conditions. They will be tougher to beat than the likes of Eng,NZ,Aus and SA in SC conditions.So if India team face India A in a 3 match test series what will be the result? India XI: Vijay,Rahul,Pujara,Kohli,Rahane,Saha (Wk),Hardik,Ashwin,Jadeja,Shami,Umesh. India A XI: Mukund,Prasanth Chopra,Iyer,Nair,Bawne,Vihari,Karthik (Wk),Karn,Kuldeep,Shardul/Aniket,Siraj. I've not considered Dhawan,Bk & Ishant as they are not Senior team regulars but in the squad so giving young guys the chance to play makes more sense.Other spinners have surpassed Jayant right now.So he's not there and picked Karthik based on form.Pant is in terrible form right now.If u've any other wk/bat options then I can add. I reckon a 2-1 win for India if it happens.

    Interest in Pant was because he averaged 80+ with a SR of 100+ last Ranji season. I don't think this has ever happened in Ranji history before ( this average + SR combo ) The other reason is because he did well in the IPL and played and hit top international pacers with ease. " u-19 Keeper who smacks a few sixes " is not the reason why he became popular. Fans, generally, don't have much interest in the keeping aspect.

    It is not just about number of games or wickets in a season. Time is an important factor too. Bowlers mature after they have time to reflect and work on their weaknesses when they get time off or in the off-season.

    Far from it. When Agarkar made his debut for India, he was a bowler who the entire cricketing fraternity was talking about. He was taking wickets in heaps against strong batsmen like Aussie batsmen, SA, Pak, Zim etc... Opposition were talking about him. And mind you, this was when, Mcgrath, Wasim, Pollock and one red hot bowler by the name of Shoaib Akhtar were in the scene! Hassan hasnt displayed such strength of character yet. Although I have hopes on him

    It does not matter. facts are facts. Janakpuri if you want to know. It has all to do with sporting ties and cricket is part of that. I am not good at debating that is why I just put my point forward. If I debate you I will probabluy lose but we can put forth our points nonetheless. I honestly spend 5 minutes reasseing after what you said and my argument still stands.

    Well track and field will be a problem he will wait for the last lap to accelerate...usually that's the way it works but he will be so far behind lunging in the other laps that it will be too late.100m is like T20 format he will suck at it anyways
