    Both pitches are flat albeit Sydney was more flatter. Series was on the line in Sydney. This is a dead rubber and it has no impact. Tough to say really. I'd give the edge to Sachin since I'm a chamcha ;)

    Bump, I am not sure if links in this post are working but Ravi the site owner and an Admin here who doesn’t post much these days first talked about this kid in 2006-07 when he was a 5-6 year old. He used to himself record videos and upload it. Today Rachin is part of the New Zealand under 19 and is going to be one of the players to watch out for in the world cup. Old timers on ICF will remember Ravi and him sharing the video clips from New Zealand of Rachin Ravindra. Thanks Ravi

    Who wants to play in my series predictor competition? It's really easy but fun as the series goes on. For the upcoming 3 test series versus RSA, pick three Indian players for each test. Specify which player is your batsman, bowler, and fielding option. Points will be added for each test to give a series total. Batsman....1 RUN = 1 pt Bowler.......1 WICKET = 25 pts Fielder.......1 CATCH/STUMPING = 25 pts 1 RUN OUT (ANY PLAYER) = 25 pts (AS PER CRICINFO SCORECARD) For example for 1st test I might choose: Batsman - Kohli Bowler - Shami Fielder - Saha In above example, only Kohl's' runs will count not his catches, only Saha's catches/stumpings will count not his runs, you get the idea. You cannot have the same player in same category for following tests. In the next test you can't pick Kohli again as a batsman but you could pick him as a fielder. You could go crazy for example and pick Shami for all three options in the 1st test. If he effects a run out that would get you additional 75 pts. Submit your 3 players for the first test now using above format (changes allowed up until 10 min after toss i.e 20 min before 1st ball). If you will not be around at toss time leave some 2nd choices for borderline picks e.g. 'Umesh or if not picked then Bumrah'. Unless you have given me instructions to the contrary, either in an existing post or a future new post timed before the 1st ball is bowled, then in the event your player does not start the match the following alternatives will apply by default. UMESH/ISHANT/BUMRAH RAHUL/DHAWAN RAHANE/ROHIT

    Sachin's inns. India was on the verge of creating history by being the first Asian team in AUS to win a series there.Sachin who was under tremendous pressure to score(being terribly out of form) rose to the occasion so emphatically.And Sachin's inns came against a slightly better attack.More over that was an Asian batsman scoring a double in AUS(spinning conditions) which is more difficult compared to an English man(coming from far more similar conditions).Cook too was out of form, but the series was already lost is the key issue here

    captaincy is overrated, leadership is not.

    Nothing wrong in that. Batsman do share the burden with their partner. Priority is to not lose wicket. He prefered facing donald than cronje. He sheilded his team from rampaging steyn on 2010 tour. Its a team sport afterall.

    I wish little god Rohit faced Ambrose and Walsh on a Perth like wicket. Ambrose would have torn his white shirt, tied it to a stump and waved it at Rohit. Total submission.

    1996 WC match between WI and India. Chasing 174, India were 11/2 with both Ajay Jadeja and this joker Siddhu back in pavillion. Both were bowled by Ambrose. Sachin won us the game with an immaculate 70 runs with some great shots against Ambrose, Walsh and Bishop. http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8039/scorecard/65165/India-vs-West-Indies-10th-Match-world-cup/ Seems like Siddhu's mental power have diminished after joining Indian National Congress

    If not of that mental midgets background politics gambhir would have been one of the best and most successful captain ever to play for India after Dada, but sadly you are a Bot you won't understand still try to understand the pic below Genius captaincy and priceless field placement

    Bhai Starc is a theek thaak red cherry bowler, nothing suggests he will get into the ATG category there. In the famous 2003 series the legendary Mcgrath, perennial nemesis of Indian cricket, didn't play a single match. And I think even you will agree that Mcgrath is a contender for the GOAT pace bowler. And in spite of being a Sachin bhakt I admit that Mcgrath had a grip over him his entire career, I have never been more scared of another bowler against our batsmen.

    Best bowler when the ball is swinging. My favorite bowler along with Hazlewood and Morkel who can bowl all day with heart. My three fav - Anderson, Hazlewood and Morkel.

    1 WKT = 10 POiNTs is too less. How will shami earn 75 points if he affects 1 run out?

    Pakistan that SRT faced : Wasim, Waqar, Imran, Qadir, Saqlain, Shoaib. Zimbabwe that SRT faced would have the fourth best bowling attack today after AUS, RSA and England. Streak, Strang, Price were all very good bowlers and teams were routinely making 350-all out vs Zimbabwe back then. RSA that SRT faced included Donald, Pollock, Ntini, deVilliers, Steyn, Morkel, etc. Sachin had '40 average' against bowling attacks like RSA that hardly anyone had 40 average against, back in that time-frame. Except for Lara, Chanderpaul, Steve Waugh, Ponting and maybe Gilchrist, nobody averaged 40+ vs RSA in RSA during that era. The fact that Smith is nowhere close to Tendulkar is proven by the simple fact that Smith averages 62+ after 100 innings, in an age where 400 is the par score for 1st innings and there is hardly a pacer with sub 27 and spinner with sub-30 bowling aveage, while Tendulkar averaged 59.6 over 150 tests & 260 innings, spanning 18 years, with bowling attacks full of players with sub 25 average for pacers, sub-30 average for spinners, on pitches where 300 was the par 1st innings score and in an era when only seven-eight players managed to average 50+ in that entire span after playing a reasonable number of tests.
