  1. It is a shoulder strain. Not sprain, but strain. Which is defined as hyperextension and possible tearing of muscle or tendon. Short of getting a hold of his MRI image, there's no way to tell how serious it is. If he cannot lift his shoulder while batting, he is walking duck and a huge liability to the team. It's time to stop speculating.
  2. This is not about fitness. It's about an injury to his shoulder. Do you know what the injury is? Did he tear a muscle, tendon or ligament? If so, he would be foolish to play. Now, if it was an ankle sprain, or a finger injury, we could all agree.

    Makes sense. Thanks.

    WTF? They lost a review against Rahane just a few overs before he got out. And still have 2 left this session before this last one? Someone forgot to count?
  5. Not to mention dropped catches close-in. He has done it multiple times.
  6. Seems pretty consistent to me. The 300 was the one inconsistency.
  7. Voice of reason, this. It depends on the type of injury. If he had a bruised arm or slight groin pain, it's one thing. A bad shoulder? Not good for this match, and definitely not good for the future.
  8. And ironically, the religious leaders have picked up the corrupt and criminal mantle.
  9. "Next time, just look into my eyes. You will see the replay."
  10. His accomplishment/technique ratio is the best in history. Still baffled by how he does it.

    Oh ... so there goes my hypothesis :-)!
  12. Every religion is a bunch of superstitions threaded together to give false hope that someone is out there protecting you and your family, and by giving enough time and money, you can please that entity. And if you "break these rules" you will displease that entity. In some ways, it works well by giving people some humility, reason to serve others etc., but for the most part, it divides people.
  13. Also, if the masses are educated and can find jobs to make a good living and don't need jihad to define the purpose of their lives, maybe they won't blindly follow the masterminds and become pawns.

    Who knows? Maybe his fitness levels were not up to par. He himself said that he is more fit now. So, hanging out with the national team, participating in their fitness regimen, learning some tricks from 3 excellent spinners (RA, RJ, AK), and now ... boom!
  15. Nothing wrong with that. He was always a consummate team man, a delight to watch when on song and contributed a good deal to Indian cricket. If he does not want to go through the grind any more, can't blame him. Don't keep bringing him up in selection discussions; just shake hands, wish him well and move on.
