  1. Very true even if we never had a team as good as Mumbai or Karnataka in recent times. The last we close in 2011 , we blew it up by preparing a road(the final was in Chennai) against Rajasthan in final. We chocked too many times against inferior teams.Hopefully winning run we had last season instills a change in attitude under pressure. Feel this time we genuinely have the best team in Ranji this seaosn and easily the best we had in years even if Ashwin goes for India team.If we blew it again though ...
  2. If we can't win Ranji this season with squad we have , I will give up hope we might ever win it again lol. This team should make it to the final at worst. Mukund Vijay Gandhi Karthick Sunder Aparjith or Inderjith Shankar Ashwin Aushik Srinivas or Rahil Shah Vignesh Crist or Natarajan.

  5. The weird Indian customs discussion

    Yes it is a recent phenomenon because of the rise of hindu parties atleast in TN. I don't even mind going through the streets as a procession ,I mean we even have similar procession for burials . What's really grating is immersing all these painted idols in rivers and seas creating soo much water pollution.
  6. K Gowtham, the Karnataka offspinner, has been dropped from the India A squad for the two four-day fixtures against New Zealand A for disciplinary reasons amounting to "gross insult to the system". He has been replaced by Karn Sharma, the Vidarbha legspinner, in the 15-man squad for the two matches, which start from September 23 in Vijayawada Gowtham, who bagged a five-for against India Green in the Duleep Trophy openerin Lucknow on September 8, fell ill on the penultimate day of the match and couldn't take the field on the final day for India Red. He subsequently skipped the second fixture and produced a medical certificate that stated he had typhoid. However, on September 12, he was in Mysore, playing for Belagavi Panthers in the ongoing Karnataka Premier League, where he is the highest-paid player in the league at INR 7.2 lakhs. The BCCI is likely to initiate a disciplinary inquiry into the matter, pending which he will not be considered for India A selection. "Gowtham opted out of the Duleep Trophy game during the first match and even produced a medical certificate that he was unwell. Two days later, he was found playing in the Karnataka Premier League. This is gross insult to the system," BCCI CEO Rahul Johri was quoted as saying by The Times of India. "A player can't take a national-level tournament for granted like this. The board is looking into this incident and till the enquiry is over, he will not be picked for India A team." http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/20772889/k-gowtham-dropped-india-insulting-duleep-trophy
  7. India Tour Of South Africa Cut Short

    South Africa just being greedy and picking more ODIs instead of tests . Initially suggested to be 4 tests 3 ODIs and 3 T20s. But SA wanted more ODIs to capitalise on Indian market ,hence decided to cut one test short and play 6 ODIs . All this fault mainly stemmed from them announcing the Australian tour schedule (that it will start on March 1) before negotiating with BCCI on India schedule and arrogantly assuming we would tour for Boxing day test forgoing our home season.
  8. Problem is we never tried the correct options at no 4 as other have mentioned.The likes of Rahane after flickering has completely gone of the boil as far as ODIs are concerned.Yuvi is way past it and Karthick was never a solution long term. Another interesting tidbit is it's not a current one off issue either.I don't really remember a quality no.4 in the past untill Yuvi emerged in late 2000s.Remember us trying Kambli,D Mongia ,Kaif all turning mediocre at best. The solution it seems for now seems giving Manish Pandey a long run to see whether he can be long term successor . Another solution I can see is dropping Rohit back to no.4 and trying an aggressive opener alongside Dhawan (Maybe Rahul?) .That could solve both our issues though Rohit's past record in middle order is a concern.
  9. Interest rate in FD

    Currently it's 6.75-7% in most banks.
  10. Unfair playing conditions

    Australia only got six overs of power play.
  11. Dhoni should bat at No. 4 : Gambhir

    You are trying to reason someone who thinks Parthiv Patel is a better option in ODIs Shouldn't really bother .
  12. Yes he is morphing into Bhuvi Klusner nowadays
  13. Halftime thoughts on the 1st India-Aus ODI

    That makes it even better actually because even when 270 is not a great total,teams not be able to reach 270+ when 3 down for 11.
  14. So how Dhoni a failure ? You have just posted a bunch of stats without any explanation.
  15. How was Dhoni a failure in CT ?
  16. Halftime thoughts on the 1st India-Aus ODI

    Highest ODI totals from 3 down for 11 or fewer runs: 368/5 - AUS v SL, 2006 (10/3) 281/7 - #INDvAUS, (11/3) 280/7 - IND v ZIM, 2004 (4/3) It's damn great recovery .
  17. Damn beat me to it lol. GOAT
  18. We were 11 for 3 lol
  19. Why are we regularly blaming Rohit for tuk tuking in powerplays and Slow starts when our top and middle order has regularly shown to crumble when exposed early to new ball.
  20. Why are we blaming Rohit for Slow starts ?

    What mediocracy ? Rohit sharma has the best average among any openers in International cricket ever. Way above the likes of even Sachin , Amla and Hayden. Heck Rohit averages 8-10+ runs more than compempary openers like Warner ,De Kock and Guptill
  21. The issue is close to being resolved.They were supposed to be opened for today's match. Think will see them resolved before next year IPL starts.
  22. It was supposed to be solved by today's match and reopened . But local administration still hasn't Cleared it yet. http://mycitychennai.com/sealed-stands-in-chepauk-stadium-to-remain-shut-for-india-vs-australia-odi-today/
  23. It was constructed against environmental rules. So courts ordered them to shut down . http://m.cricbuzz.com/cricket-series/cricket-news/71443/supreme-court-orders-tnca-to-demolish-three-chepauk-stands
