    Ganguly has demonstrated his saltiness about a lot of things - and is well-known to have a huge ego. When a batsman in his late 30s who was batting at less than 70 SR for multiple years, and shoring up his average against weaker bowling units i.e. on the decline - expresses surprise and anger at being dropped from the team - you know he lacks the capacity to be objective when it comes to his own selection and treatment. Lot of respect for Sourav for some the policies he personally pushed for as Captain. But too often Indian fans seem to have an either "with him or against him" mentality when it comes to player support. Not all characters are black and white - in fact, almost all of them are gray.

    To think that he was still a ticket collector during 2003 WC is amazing man. People can say whatever they want but to come from such a modest background without any backing and went onto become one of the greatest cricketers is a fairy-tale story. Immense respect for the man. Dont think in current era of nepotism, we will see such rags to riches players again.

    Should have lost captaincy and his spot in ODI team after Pakistan drew test series in India and thumped India 4-2 in one-dayers. If memory serves me right, that was John Wright's last series as India's coach. Chappell did this Chappell did that but majority of Ganguly's problems were self-inflicted.

    Dont think even with Dhoni we had any chance to win the 2003 WC final...360 was impossible to chase those days. I wish we had clutch players like Dhoni or Kohli to support Sachin in 96 WC though. We could have won that Semi final at Eden gardens but no one was there to support Sachin. That WC was ours and what a feeling it would have been to lift the trophy in Lahore.

    That is exactly what bevda used to do in his playing days. No wonder he loves similar players. He is stupid as well as unrepentantly arrogant. A very deadly combo.

    Dabur Amla career over????

    Why does it have to be abut religion everytime. Our green brothers are the ones who built him up like the second coming of Don Bradman but he was good but not the greatest. Pakistan did not have a good batsman and let us be honest all of them were living vicariously thru him. So you are the one who has made it about religion. It is never abt religion on ICF.

    Looking at Khaleel Ahmed bowl today ... he has a lot of impressive qualities Good aggressive run-up Strong action Good pace Good height and gets bounce. Left-armer Can move the ball both ways Good bouncer Decent yorker and slower ball

    This is weak Australian batting Line up. The teams that won in the past were strong teams. Past records doesn’t mean much when you enter into a new series with a new team. Only Smith, Warner, Cummins abd maybe Lyon have toured Aus Not ti mention. That this Aus team inspire of playing in similar conditions felt the need to prepare for 10 days before the series. That says something about us.

    Watching Aus in SA and wondering

    Without quota they would have been actual #1. They lost a terrific fast bowler like Kyle Abott due to quota who signed Kolpak. They lost likes of Ingram, Riley Rossow to.

    Hanuma vihari looks a solid opening batsman against genuine fast bowlers shammi and saini. For me vihari is ahead of prithvi Shaw.

    Umesh has bowled very well today. Great line n length. I found him pacy too though it was shown as 132 to 138k...I saw few overs of Umesh.

    3 of Starc's wickets were caught. How many catches were caught of INdian bowlers? I think most people here did not watch the match in entirety. I watched it. Starc looked toothless in the first half. He did get reverse swing later but theres a little more to all this than just saying Indian bowlers didnt do it. Australia had already put up a score of close to 350 by then. I say we already have a bowling attack pretty similar to such attacks. They just need to acclimatize better and need backing from the team.

    our Problem was our two mainstream fast bowlers who were instrumental to our rise to No.1 Test ranking, suddenly lost their rhythm and form. Umesh, who was totally world-class against Australia, suddenly lost his pace (at least 5 ks) and rhythm in srilanka. Shami, after being recovered from his injury, is not the same force, he used to be. It is very difficult to recover as a team, when two of your best fast bowlers, suddenly became so in-effective, before the start of a big series. We are lucky that we had Bumrah , otherwise it would have been shambolic.

    Zak was nervous and India lost plot in first few overs only. Anyway, having Dhoni in 2003 team would not have solved any problem.

    Why people hate minnows in WC?

    Because they end up winning tournaments like CT and ruin the whole thing.

    Its just a rough idea but by the looks of performance s of Richardson,Bird there are not able replacements as they had earlier.Aus always used to have decent Fast bowling attack of which few were capable of dismantling lineups even in SC.I think this attack Will also do well in SC .. However I wasnt talking about their post retirement scenario,I was saying what if anyone of these get injured

    All in all even Mumbaikars know Rohit sharma is a gone case in Tests. His 100s at home mean very little from now on. He has been in the international scenes for more than 10 years.

    As I said 140k here looks 145k at least. Sid kaul was bad and slow. Saini bowling first over now. Speed gun showed 137k. Khaleel was super fast but not too good on line n length.

    Yeah it's crazy that it would be the same bowler. And the batsman Will Pucovski- it's the third time he's been hit on the head apparently. Once fielding, twice while batting. Surely he needs to re-evaluate his career now.

    Pakistan Super League - Season 3

    Stop acting as if you have a fast bowling culture, I can pick any bowler from the streets and he will bowl better than your spinners. 148 where a Bangladeshi bowler bowled a ball at 160 and a left arm spinner bowled at 135 kph. Shows the speed guns were wrong. Your just trying to make yourself feel better that’s all, we know the epic truddler brigade within India, since the beginning of time you have only had one fast medium bowler the rest were/are spinners.

    It is very very bad that, this otherwise good Cricket forum has boss named Saurav forever who thinks other than India matches are NOT IMPORTANT He removed thread of all other international cricket than either he opens the thread or his best friend open thread he removed other members name and put his name. I think he should come forward and apologize on LIVE CRICKET THREAD other than India.other people (members) are not animals

    If you think of a mother's breast as milk dispensors , you will not feel uncomfortable . I have heard that in some islamic countries, even non muslims are expected not to eat or display food in public during ramzan fasting to respect the feelings of fasting people. People saying cover up to feed is also the same . The woman and the baby are expected to feel uncomfortable ( at least the baby ) to spare the feeling of others. It is an act of nourishing and that is the whole point of the picture. People need to stop sexualizing the act or the part on display. People need to get a cover for their thoughts , not the milk dispensor. Once people can see it purely as an act of feeding , they will stop feeling uncomfortable and the poor baby can have a meal without having to hide it's head under cover.,

    The biggest advantage of grooming Gopal is that he is a decent batter. May lend more balance to the side than Chahal ... and his bowling is very good. Gopal turns the ball more than Karn ... so, he is a better prospect as an all-condition spinner.

    Newer places tend to give discounts . Older places have reputation and experience. There is a new hair style place near by who is offering keratin treatment for half the price. It is upto people if they want to take the risk and pay less. With something like skin ,I would always recommend going for reputation and experience. For hair..you can be more experimental. It will grow out in a years time.
