    We have been seeing this year after year during Pink matches. The other team shows full support for the cause and the Indian team just comes and plays like they couldn't care less. At least it looks like that by their non participation .It would be different if it was not a pink match for support and awareness and individually and collectively they don't give a damn . But it is not so. They participate in the match without participating in the cause. The stadium is painted pink.Even most spectators take the effort to wear something pink to show support.It is not just symbolic. It is to show support and spread awareness.The SA team jerseys are going for auction . Indian teams non participation in any form is not an oversight. It can't be unless the whole team,management and bcci is colour blind. Just wearing pink ribbons won't be such a big effort. Breast cancer is a world wide issue that effect families all over the world. Just a little support does not cost much . It is not like the board is losing money because of some conflict of interest.They need not change the jersey,just ribbons or shoes would be enough. It is not like it is a cultural thing that is alien to the team. It is not a national issue. It is a health issue that all women face. Even Indian women ....a lot of them . So why does the team/ management / bcci not care enough to buy some pink ribbons at least. I feel sad looking at these matches and the team looks like a team of uncaring brats. Would you like to see the Indian team participate in some form or the other? Yes ? No ? Don't give a damn?

    Man I don’t know but I love Morkel’s bowling. The guy puts in lot of hard work into his bowling. Especially in test matches where Steyn, Rabada and Philander have bowled more fuller to the batsman, Morkel has bent his back to bowl those short ones. Bending your back consistently can fk your body up and Morkel has done it all his life. You got to appreciate such bowlers, regardless of where they come from. One of my favorites from South Africa till date.

    Hopeless overseas and against any decent swing bowling. Time to move on to younger players with better mentality and technique.

    On a serious note....this always happens. The other team shows full support for the cause and the Indian team just comes and plays like they couldn't care less. At least it looks like that by their non participation . Just wearing pink ribbons won't be such a big effort. Breast cancer is a world wide issues that effect families all over the world.

    I have always thought that Jadeja had great cricketing sense. Even as a captain. It is a pity his career got cut short with match fixing allegations. As commentator, I find his analysis rather insightful and also unbiased. It is very difficult for Indian commentators not keep to sucking up to the team or board. Manju goes on another extreme by being overly critical. Ajay finds right balance and smartly criticises in a sly polite manner that will not get registered with our head honchos. One more interesting observation he made on inability to play spin in general including Indian side who are not as good as they used to. The culture of bowling machines and throw down have eliminated the art of watching the ball or the wrist. It is indeed true and makes perfect sense when you see a top class international team struggling like school boys against decent wrist spin.

    The problem is, such incidents only pull down a players morale. If Anukul comes to know Venky and Dravid were/ are against him, imagine the mental plight of the kid. Understand that this kid is from a poor family coming from an irrelevant small village. He must already feel out of place, and such things will only make him nervous.

    It's usually the home team that asks the away team to join them in support to anything. Definitely sure had they requested them to wear a ribbon IND would not have declined.

    Rohit day by day is proving what a colossal mistake it was to play him first two tests. This guy is such a Minnow basher. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    India still has 5 times as many wins in Australia and South Africa this millennium than you do with your "battery". Whats the point of having a bowling attack with Wasim, Waqar, Imran, Fazal, Sarfraz Nawaz, Asif, Amir, Gul, Junaid, Zahid, Akhtar if you can't win?

    You dare to mention a noname like shinwari, a tried and tested failure like junaid and a phateechar match fixer like amir as some fast bowling superstars, you are the one who needs a reality check

    Shaw's trigger movement while playing pacers is rather uncommon and many would say that it makes things more difficult for him in some ways. He drags his back foot outside the leg stump before the ball is delivered ... as if he is trying to play inside out. This makes it more difficult to reach channel deliveries and reduces the idea of one's off stump position. Shaw is frequently seen playing and missing channel deliveries. Tackling round the wicket short balls maybe more difficult too. P.S - I am a great supporter of unorthodox techniques if they are yielding consistent results. Steve Smith, Jasprit Bumrah , Sehwag are great examples. Shaw may turn out to be such a player too... and the rest of his game looks very good.
