    WIMBLEDON 2018 discussion (and grass tune ups)

    Huge win for Djokovic, deserves it after outclutching Nadal in the semi final. That was the true final but Anderson would have played better if he had not played for 11 hours in the last 4 days. As for the roof, they had no option but to close it on Friday, but it was nothing but an utter stupidity to keep it closed on Saturday when there was bright sunshine outside. The roof tilted the match in Djokovic's favor, even then it was mighty close. Serving first in the 5th set was also an advantage for him. There's a huge difference between saving break points and match points. But with big 3 playing well at the same time, it seems tennis is getting exciting again.

    French Open 2018

    Great performance from Rafa in the final, I was expecting a tougher match considering he wasn't really playing that well in this tournament but stepped it up big time today. #17 and not done yet!
  4. For starters, we should stop comparing ourselves with Pakistan. A better and a more humbling comparison would be with China.

    Smith, Warner could face life ban from CA

    It won't be that bad but definitely there will be some strict action. CA is under a lot of pressure. I don't think Smith & co expected that they'd face such huge public backlash in Australia. Just look at this, every major paper had them on front page

    Is Reverse Swing possible without tampering ?

    I wonder how much of it is due abrasive nature of Indian pitches/grounds. Also there's a difference between starting and actually making an impact in the game. I don't think I have seen reverse swing from 10-15 overs to be honest, even in India the ball needs to be quite older than that for reverse swing to have an impact in the game.
  7. Excellent decision and I think we can win against England this time. Our bowling attack is good enough to get them out twice.

    Is Reverse Swing possible without tampering ?

    It is possible but it's not always a certainty as we have seen in this test series. SA were reversing the ball from 25-30 overs onward, that's impossible without ball tampering IMO. Plus the lush green grounds make it even more difficult. It will be interesting to see how much reverse swing SA get in the 4th innings. They will be under the spotlight as well. But I guess you can get away with it at home because everything depends on what the host broadcasters decides to capture and show, umpires can't really keep an eye on everything.
  9. He will be removed from captaincy, I have no doubt about that. From my observation on social media, the whole country wants him removed. You can't ignore such strong public sentiment. In fact, the govt has asked CA to remove him as well. This will be his last test as Australia's captain, I don't think he expected such a massive response back home in Australia. Gotta give it to Aus public though, they have been strongly against Smith & Co. on this.

    Ball Tampering by Aus ?

    Mods should remove the question mark from the headline now.

    Ball Tampering by Aus ?

    Absolutely, they had no choice. The whole team management was involved. Still Lehman got a pass. Trying to minimize damage.

    Ball Tampering by Aus ?

    Steve Smith admitted that the team "leadership" was involved in it.

    Ball Tampering by Aus ?

    The funny thing is that if they had not tried to relay the message to Bancroft to hide it in his pants, it wouldn't have looked so bad. Now it clearly implicates the team management too. They had no idea that that part was caught on camera too. They shot themselves in the foot by trying to be extra smart.
