    I called this long back and how many catches have been spilled since.
     
    Teams like WI and SL will lose 9/10
    times even if you give each of their batsman 3 lives each.
     
    The big teams at home will not hurt  you because the spinners will gobble them up.

    In 10th std an Astrologer once told me I will never move/travel out of Mumbai...even though I briefly moved to my hometown of Hyderabad in my late teens that wasn’t exactly what I consider as an “in your face to the astrologer”
     
    Now I guess I can safely say in your face astrologer  fk you.

    Not there yet.
     
    But he will and that is good for Indian cricket
     
    Dhoni was my fav wk-bat but I had no problem when Saha over took him in a little
    time....we evolve for the best

    maniac got a reaction from diehardpacer in The importance of introducing and backing exciting new talent with regularity   
    Looks like you are just contradicting me for the heck of it....Now there are 2 things there is dissent for an authority figure like Coach,Captain etc as it was in the case of Chappell,Kapil or Kumble and then there is totally giving in to player demands.
     
    Kapil was a poor coach and even though players were not happy with him,it took the match fixing scandal to break out when he was in the spotlight and he resinged "voluntarily" .This had nothing to do with Player power.he went out of the spotlight on his own.
     
    Similarly sure players might have had an input in picking Chappell but the kind of power he wielded and the kind of  contract he had wouldn't have been possible without BCCI's blessing. during the whole Ganguly-Chappell fiasco,Chappell was backed and Ganguly dropped for his own poor form because it was the right thing to do. Clearly Ganguly was more popular than Chappell in the dressing room...where was the player power?
     
    With Kumble it is a little different...There was an interim committee comprised of Ex-Players and not the board that took decisions. I don't want to go in detail but it is still fresh enough and you have agreed on that it was handled poorly.
     
    Sran's injury status before WT20 is something I am not sure of but sure as hell did not justify Nehra's return and make Nehra our go to left armer at age 37.
     
    Jadhav vs Pandey-Sure it is subjective but I personally think Pandey has more of an upside but yeah debatable.
     
    Nair and Jayant-no matter ho returns a guy who hits a 300 does not get dropped after 3 games-period.Getting dropped from the X1 sure,would have been somewhat reasonable but out of the squad?
     
    Same with Jayant Yadav-He should be in the scheme of things,as one series doesn't justify dropping him as he did have a good run before that.

    maniac got a reaction from sensible-indian in "Shastri Hai Hai"   
    Look for some matches from 1992 Ind-Wi-Aus tri series....Srikkanth reaches his 50 less than run a ball and by those days standards a very exciting innings and Shastri was batting at 10 from some 60 balls.
     
    worst part was everyone wanted to see a on fire Srikkanth but Shastri would play out 5 balls and take a single on the last ball
     
    I remember some Indians watching in the crowd in Australia were also chanting Shastri hai hai.

    Did he really need to play against Srilanka or the WI series prior to that or in the dead rubbers vs Australia....clearly A grade hypocrite.
     
    He was portrayed as some kind of a patriot in the movie made about his life but he is just another sleazebag trying to get every penny he can make
    out of Indian cricket.

    maniac got a reaction from Rasgulla in Right to have my content/Profile deleted   
    Damn I did a mistake of hanging around lol...good job baiting me back for atleast a while.
     
    I guess you might have missed the point I made in my previous thread which got deleted because it hit a nerve.so you probably missed it.
     
    Let me give you the context because I don't want this to be lost on anyone reading this thread as the previous one was deleted. You have been around for a while on this forum so you know that a couple of posters have had their profiles and all their content deleted. So it is possible for starters.
     
    Now no one is compelled to do anything. It might have been done as a personal favor for them.
     
    Now I have already stated that there is obviously nothing much to strong arm anyone into doing things my way.
     
    However, The request was made to admins and not mods and  that too as a friendly request.
     
    The response I got  from one of them was very abrupt and some bot like statement about some random policy.
     
    Had that come from a real bot,I wouldn't have been offended to be honest lol. This is where I feel the personable touch of the original forum has been lost.
     
    It is not like I have made some  offensive posts that is going to kill my future plans for political office if I ever consider that :). So even if my profile is not deleted it is no biggie.
     
    What was a friendly request,could have been handled in a friendlier way like it was in the past.  Anyways I am not being a snowflake and getting all wound up due to one guy's rudeness.
     
    My intention was not even to create a thread. I have no more intention posting on this forum exactly for the reasons mentioned above.
     
    I know you like playing the devil's advocate and hey we all do that exactly that a lot of times because this is a place we tend to loosen up lot more than what we could do on the more popular social media platforms right?
     
    Now imagine this,you make an offensive statement and you want to be deleted and it is forever there on the internet,is that something you are ok with? This is not even a conglomerate,so any guy who is a mod and say he dislikes you can hold you accountable forever then? I am not saying that is a possibility because most of these guys are just volunteers and most of them are genuinely great guys, but also that is exactly the reason we tend to be more casual on here anyways. 
     
    I think we need to have a right to erase within reason.
     
    Anyway glad you baited me,because rather have a post with a sensible counter argument  than a post about Rohit/Ishant be the last one lol.

    maniac got a reaction from velu in Right to have my content/Profile deleted   
    Anyways this is my last post on this forum. I hope the admins treat this as a genuine request and not some kind of an act or trolling.I have tried asking nicely. I will appreciate if you still consider deletion of my profile as someone who has contributed well over the years.
     
    If not
     
    I will leave you with this what has been kind of a open secret
     
    Hope Rohit Sharma never plays tests again and that mofo better pick up his game as he might be a walking disaster during the world cup,unless England provide these 400+ pitches. We need to find a replacement for this jackoff/free loader soon.
     
    Ishant after 10+years has evolved into a a good 3rd seamer. That is like the kid who gets 35% pass marks after repeating the same class 5 times....usually with those kids,the better alternative is for them to run a kirana or pan store than to hope they will excel in the field of academics some day.
     
    Finally Rayudu, glad that his comeback chances are nipped in the bud. unfortunately, he is replaced by Raina which is heart breaking. Hope Indian cricket corrects its problems soon or else we will go the WI way.
     
    I will obviously be curious enough to check and hit refresh on this thread for the next couple of hours but after that it is curtains.
