  1. SRH Playing 11

    Warner Dhawan Pandey Williamson Saha Pathan/Hooda Shakib Rashid Bhuvi Thampi Sandeep/Khalil/Natarajan/Kaul so many likely combos...can even drop Williamson and get a overseas bowler in like Jordan
  2. Ball Tampering by Aus ?

    Bring back Renshaw...drop Bancroft....how did he take the spot of a potential ATG is beyond me
  3. Wild Wild Country on Netflix

    Wow just wow...one of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen. Firstly I knew very little of Osho/Rajneesh before this. I saw couple of pictures of him here and there growing up in India and always thought of him as just another run of the mill baba/spiritual guru like the millions we already have in India I obviously did hear a couple of snippets of his speeches via WhatsApp forwards etc especially the most famous one where he speaks about the word “fk” However, watching the documentary I was totally blown away by the fact how big his influence was in the USA and how big of a controversy/conflict it became there in the early 80’s....Infact even reading articles online, no one seems to have heard of this incredible story that is shown via Netflix until now despite all the press it seemed to received back then. Also the best part of the documentary was it shows both sides, especially the conservative people in USA who were paranoid/apprehensive about him and it totally makes sense from their perspective as well. It doesn’t tell a story from one perspective. You just can’t pick sides here. Also incredible is how relevant this story is in the year 2018. This was just added on Netflix so I am assuming most of you might not have watched it ,so not going into spoilers. An absolute must watch....watch it and we can discuss...be prepared to have your mind blown.
  4. Wild Wild Country on Netflix

    That is probably because of a lot more space available in the USA and being comparatively more immigrant friendly( ironical considering the content of this documentary ) compared to Aus,Nzl etc which were probably just a shade better versions of South Africa in the early 80s. Canada obviously because of the weather but yeah I don’t think Oregon has such pleasant weather either. Also as you saw in the documentary, it is easier to work around and find loopholes in the American law be it immigrantion or politics which a lot of immigrants do to this day.
  5. Wild Wild Country on Netflix

    I went to Toronto last year to visit family and I was surprised that the Canada Netflix had a lot more newer movies compared to what we get in the USA which I am told because of all the licensing issues in the USA...may be US gets priority with original content Anyways watch it when it is available...fantastic show

  15. After Dharamshala now Dehradun stadium

    For a change and this may come as a surprise,I might agree on this. I guess it is a case of anyone over Rajiv Gandhi jokes apart same thing with Hyderabad as well...maybe after VVS Laxman instead of Rajiv Gandhi or even Jaisimha or Pataudi
  16. Our chances to win the tournament have just doubled usually bad luck let’s us down not this time
  17. His wife just has a “b”vibe and gold digger vibe about her...her first video, kind of sympathized with her but then as it went along, we can see her for what she was.
  18. The guy looks the real deal whenever I saw him with the bat...hope he translates it on the big stage. Good luck for his debut.
  19. Karthik vs Saha

    Saha is very consistent and has no lapses...who cares if Karthik is more athletic...no doubt in terms of talent Karthik is a better bat but Saha right now has done nothing wrong to be dropped...it was a punishable offense when he got replaced by Pappu of all people even though he was technically “niggled”
  20. Vijay Shankar performance watch

    I am one of those who always backed Shankar the batsman...I think his bowling is a value add maybe good enough for 3-4 overs or maybe 6-7 on a good day. I think Binny is a far better bowler than him to be honest. However I thought he has a lot of batting talent. I still think he deserves a few more games before making a decision on his career. as you said facing Fizz in your first match might have been a challenge and we can use the first international game excuse to give him the benefit out doubt . However he is a 27 year old guy and not a 18 year old which means the rope will be shorter than say a Sundar or even guys like Pant and Siraj if they ever get a 2nd look. The most worrisome part for me was a little lack of cricket acumen and awareness on his part, once he was not able to connect, he should have bunted and ran to give the other batsman the strike.He kept swinging across the line and the more he missed the more antsy he got. Look at how composed a Sundar or even a Bumrah was in their first game....Even someone like Pandya whom I still think should either own the spot of a batsman or a bowler soon before time runs out looked like he was not overawed and looked confident(in his case a tad overconfident). Guys like Pathan,Dhoni(in his 2nd game), Rohit in 2007-2008, Kohli,Raina, Bhuvi, Shami,Yuvi all looked like they had that awareness and belonged at this level from game 1. Dhawan was the only guy I can recollect who looked like deer in headlights in his first few games but came back strong.
  21. Also the first guy to ban smoking in public areas I think when it was a social norm ...just remembered that...carry on
  22. I guess the shoe throwers should take a leaf out of Imran Khan himself and start tampering the shoes with bottle caps to get through this ‘bat force’
  23. If Shami ever comes out of this and plays for India again...he should be given the ball every time there is a clutch situation...Regardless if he is the victim or culprit, the way he is maintaining composure on these interviews Only positive from this tamasha-If there is a last over situation give Shami the ball
  24. What kind of vegetarian are you ?

    I went to India for a wedding recently.They had a chaat stall and Jalebi stall set up during dinner on both wedding and reception day as part of the catering.....I just ate Pani puri,samosa chaat etc and jaalebi for 2 dinners straight and I can continue like that for the rest of my life if given a choice...so I am a chaat and jaalebiraltarian which is >>>>>>>>>>> any other “tarian”
