    Mr Sobers, would you like to bat? : Wadekar

    Another quote worth noting: "We put a lot of emphasis on catching because we used to hear a lot of stories from old-timers, that earlier we had a lot of good spinners like Vinoo Mankad, Ghulam Ahmed and Subhash Gupte, and if we would have had good fielders we would have won a lot of matches. During those days, I believe that they used to keep the old players in the slips so that they didn't have to run too much. In our case, if you dropped a player like Gary Sobers, Rohan Kanhai or Clive Lloyd, you had it; they would go on to get a hundred"

    Squad for 4th and 5th test match

    For all we know, they could pick Faiz Fazal, Unmukt Chand and Parthiv Patel because they scored centuries in a match within the last 5 years and ... you know ... are experienced.

    why can't rahane open the batting in test matches?

    The two words that have been used by Indian cricket fans in the last 2 weeks? "WHY CAN'T ... ?"

    1992 Interview of ABVP - Old videos of ABV

    Fair enough. It is likely that they are lying simply to make him look bad in the eyes of Hindus. The larger point is that, if he did have a taste for beef, he shouldn't have to deny it for fear of one religious group or another shunning him. Would it be okay if he ate fish, lamb, pork or chicken? Why? Why not? What if someone was offended if he had a drink every night? In some families and cultures, alcohol is considered immoral ("Ayyo, yeNNe hodithaananthe guru. Paapishta nan maga"). In short, what do his dietary preferences have to do with governance? It is no different than radical Christians or Muslims putting religious beliefs above national interest in other parts of the world.

    So what if he ate beef? Does that make him any less of a leader, PM or person?

    Wtf statements you have heard from people.

    Do it at your own peril. These wisdoms have stood the test of time. Our ancestors did not pass on everything to us, only the important things that we must know. Things like Ayurveda, homeopathy, Chinese herbal medicine; if they has been done since like 2500 BC, they must be valid.

    Why take a risk? There was always some meaning to what our ancestors experienced and they passed on the wisdom to us. Why would you ignore them?

    @Laaloo Why did you say that I was trolling? It is a perfectly valid analysis of the cellular chemistry of specific foods, and their relationship to nutrition. Until something is proven to be completely 100% safe, you must not consume it or feed it to your kids.

    My ICF moniker is simply a way to honor Steve Smith and his famous "brainfade" DRS fiasco.

    When man first started using salt, it was a very scarce precious commodity. If someone gave you salt, it means they control you. You cannot let your children utter the word salt or give you salt, because that means you are symbolically under their control.
