    2nd Test IND v SL | Nagpur

    Kohli sees Anushka in every Sharma. Ch**** selection. Where did his theory of always playing 5 ballers go? Could not have been better chance to try vijay Shankar - he might have failed, but no harm trying. Only way we winning this test with this team is if we bat only once.

    Least bothered about "how it looks", especially to those wearing green-tinted glasses. The current policy "looks" absolutely fine to me. I want BCCI and the Indian government to use all means and leverage at its disposal to apply pressure on Pakistan to change its conduct. And I don't want any unnecessary negative consequences for India. The optics of it, or questions of inconsistency are meaningless. Judging from the constant whining and squealing from the PCB, Pakistani cricketers former and current alike, and the fans, the cricket policy is working just fine. I would respectfully ask all the Pakistanis - whether its the board, the players or the fans - to take their complaints to their own government. They are the ones who can take the steps that need to be taken, to address the issue. If Pakistan were to extradite or even convict the likes of Zaki Lakhvi, Masood Azhar, Dawood Ibrahim, Hafiz Saeed, I would guarantee that you would see a "home" series for Pakistan with India. Within months. Problem is that your pakjabi military mafia doesn't want to do that. In fact, the latest "not guilty" verdict on Hafeez, shows how deep the rot is, in Pakistan. Feel free to keep whining about "principles", "not mixing politics with sport", etc etc though - its sweet music to my ears. Even though all this talk about principles sounds quite hypocritical from Pakistanis who are guilty of abetting terrorism and murder of innocents.

    Teach her about good and bad touch. Tell your wife to use a doll to explain to her.You can check on line also how you can teach a child that. Teach her to scream and run if any one touches her and make her believe that you both will protect her if she comes to you. In most cases ( not this) the child is blackmailed about hurting the parent. Explain to her that she can tell you without fear. Also explain how no matter what, she should never go with someone without asking the parent. If any one says parents have sent to get her...tell her to ask for a password. You should have a password that you share with her. Something simple. Kids experiment with sexuality. Specially if the child has seen something or experiencing sexual abuse too.

    But how is somene termed “overhyped” if he has 10k runs. No one with 10k runs can be called overhyped. He has performd for England a lot of times even if he might have failed against Australia. If you don’t like him being compared to Tendulkar then its fine, even I don’t like the comparison, but you should’t call a player overhyped. He is one of the modern greats who just had a slump or had poor run against Australia. Not many people get to 10k runs. He is a rare case from England and is in elite club.

    That's true but off late Ishant declined in home tests but improved in away matches. I have a gut feeling he will do well in South Africa. There will at least be one memorable spell where he will run through the SAffers line up. Only time will tell.

    But that's the point brother. Who wants war? I certainly don't. I wait for the day to dawn where India-Pakistan border becomes like the US-Canada border, and all we have to bitch about would be the inefficiencies of desi customs and immigration workers. But given the actions of the Pakistani military and government, you have to understand that the Indian public and government can't just pretending that everything is normal, and let "cricket" go on. Its not normal to have murderers come into our cities and shoot up hospitals, restaurants, railway stations. And its certainly not normal for national governments to refuse to punish the proven perpetrators of such horrific crimes. Entire world knows that Zaki Lakhvi was in the "control room" directing those murderers in 2008. But Pakistani government is hiding behind the fig leaf that voice analysis, which is good enough for the justice systems all over the world, is not recognized by Pakistani judges. Are you kidding me? Everyone knows that Hafiz Saeed's organization and their Muridke complex trains "non-state actors" in tactics. I wonder why do "charity workers" need SWAT, military and IED training in Pakistan? And you want people to accept that he's some kind of Muslim Santa Claus?

    Both Dhoni and Kolhi have done horrendous team selections. But you have to give it to Dhoni that atleast he kicked out oldies at the start of his captaincy and got in youngsters who are the pillars of today's team. Kohli seems so F*cking reluctant to give more chances to youngsters and hell bent on giving chances back to his buddies and undeserving oldies (including Dhoni).

    And still gets picked in the team not a single new seamer tested in last 4-5 years . 9 tests , 15 innings and 10 wickets , Averaging 49.20. Why exactly is he being picked ?

    Those figures prove why people should never go by stats alone. Australia had their worst ever bowling attack of modern times during that series Cook went big. Bollinger, Doherty, Spray gun version of Mitch Johnson, Michael beer...wtf? Cook took advantage of a tired and worn Aussie attack, all credit to him, but I don't think he can boast a good record against Australia until he performs against one of their accomplished attack. Incidently the same thing happened in 2012 vs India. Worst Indian test side of recent times and cook capatilised. The funny things is, those two series will go down as his best ever by the end of his career...says it all. Summary- good player but NOT GREAT

    No that is where we are going wrong, making them greedy for 5fers is not bad thing at all. If they aim for 5fers they will end up with 3 plus wickets,They have to be put under pressure otherwise they will never perform under pressure. There are no freebies given when they travel. Unless bar is raised for them India has no chance of becoming a dominant force everywhere.

    Overhyped for someone over 10k runs? You are kidding. He might suck now days, but he is not overhyped. No one is who has scored over 10k runs.

    Yaar first half an hour into the test match everyone is charged up usually. It is after you lose some fuel is when it counts. You won't seem the same guys shouting and encouraging bowlers "Shabash Shabash" etc after certain time. Some people just lose fuel on the field and Pujara, Ashwin are some of them. Shami too, but Shami doesn't count as he is always pathetic on the field. Umesh is brilliant in this. Umesh fields his heart out even after bowling a long spell.

    i dont say he chucks in all balls but he chucks at least in 2 to 3 balls of his over. i played a chucker ..i just defended as i just could not manage,,my coalegue batsman got out like ninpins. Chucker controls the line n length of the ball like anything as he kinda aims and throws at a particular point on the pitch and with great pace. it is too dangerous to play cross bat and one has to play very straight else batsman will get bowled. there are many Half chuckers playing in corporate teams and clubs in Mumbai and I hate that. as they are not regular bowlers they chuck a few balls and umpires dont notice them..its very BAD. I score 30's and 50's consistently and these guys are contenders to get me out after the first 4 overs are negated by me, i hit spinners very well and some of these so called spinners chuck after getting Hit for a Six or 4. if you guys Pardon me then i would tell you that Praveen kumar also some times bowled 135k to 138k balls , some of those were CHUCK balls. his normal pace was 120 to 132k and never crossed 132k with legal round arm action balls but some times he had the capability to suddenly chuck and go upto 136-137k , most of his fastish balls were chuck..if you think that i am saying wrong , please try to see his video's. he could swing the ball to immensely and thats why he played for india..he did chuck once a while not always. only when he got irritated nd did not get wickets , he chucked for one ball or so.

    Ishant sharma is an experienced campaigner (he already has 77 tests under his belt). We already invested in him a lot and he needs to persisted with to maximize that.... He will achieve success here and let us see how it pans out in South Africa....

    Given that Bhuvi and Shami are unavailable, who would you rather have seen? I would liked Bumrah to play but he's nowhere near the team in tests. I'd still pick Ishant over the likes of Shardul, Dhawal, Unadkat etc.

    This is a post for all the members, but more importantly the moderators. While I do understand that we need to have more posters and we need to have a lot of diverse content to keep the site up and running, allowing trolls here is not one of them. In a span of 2-3 weeks, I am seeing a sudden rise in the no of trolls, mainly the Pakistani posters. @Moderator and other moderators, kindly do a proper check and moderation. I don't think you guys are going through the posts properly. The Pakistani trolls need to be either banned or their troll posts should be immediately deleted. I have raised the same issue earlier but the moderators seem to be sleeping. Please look into it or people will leave, atleast I will leave, this forum. You would have already noticed I havent posted much for the last 2-3 weeks.

    Quality doesn't come with lower quantity here. I remember when we used to have lower activity, it was mostly trolling. Now it's mix of that. You can't choose quality over quantity. You will have to choose quantity with quality. Do you really think any quality poster will post here if people reply after 2 days? No one is interested in posting in such scenario.

    Shami had a 144.x his wicket of Chandimal and Umesh had a 141.x i remember seeing a 139 from Bhuv..are we talking about different innings or may be you are being conservative.

    Trolls on ICF: Moderators please read!

    You are not accountable obviously for the actions of some idiots from your country.Totally agree!!! However your totally accountable for the stupidity you display on this forum or your intention to troll which I may add is very annoying. If you were managing to rile up people with offensive posts than sure it is what you are supposed to do as a troll which is fine I guess as it is the moderators job to clean that up. My problem is whenever I open a thread most times you have no fkin clue what the topic is about, yet,I see some random rambling from you which neither has anything to do with the thread or neither it comes across as a well thought out post. It is a total eyesore. I don’t know you personally,For all I know you might be working on the cure for cancer and might volunteer in the soup kitchen in your down time, so it is never personal but your posts sure come across as someone who is not very bright and has no clue whatsoever. I personally like diversity and a different POV on this forum especially when it is presented and articulated well, but at times diversity for the sake of diversity is pointless. I know I quoted you here even though there is a 90% chance this post will go over your head...However this is addressing all the “diverse” trolls out there.
