    Crookbond got a reaction from GoldenSun in Virat Kohli v AB de Villiers - who is better ODI batsman?   
    Quite true - they were under pressure with the "Chokers" tag and decided they would "hit out" against it in glory. Well, they fell on their back side. The headline on Cricinfo mid innings for South Africa said it all - "Australia blow away nervous SA top order" (or something like that). However, I must add though that a lot of times there is a ill formed prejudice in mentioning the word "choke" to their collapses. It's almost as if every time they lose(even if the opposition play a magnificent game) they are called chokers which I feel is unfair. But well, stereotypes take precedence there.

    It looks like you did have appreciable impact with Dale Steyn despite the short stint. Of late, a lot of fast bowlers around the globe have side-on actions. Can you brief us about the specific benefits and disadvantages of a front-on and side-on action. Which of these is more favorable on aspects of speed/swing/injuries?

    After the Champions Trophy final, Shoaib Malik - Azhar Mahmood were giggling with Yuvraj and Kohli about this very incident itself.

    Crookbond got a reaction from Unstable Joe in Indian Future Captain After Kohli   
    In these situations, the best way is to do what the ECB did with Moores and Pietersen - coach and captain both go. This kind of politics shouldn't be entertained in the dressing room.

    I'm also backing Kohli to ask Moody to be his bitch and fall in line. Otherwise, strong boy Kohli will go and complain to momma-papa about management style.

    And he decided to leave because of adamant Virat and reports suggest it was personal, not cricket related.  Please stop being sympathetic because he is a Dilli ka Ladka or Punjabi munda and call what it is. We have a pig headed captain and it also sends the wrong message to the next coach as well.

    It's got to have a special kind of mental gymnastics to make that conclusion. Everything won't be spelt out - it was clear that Kumble was forced out because Kohli was adamant.

    OTT optimism for everyone doesn't mean there's no yaraana for Dilli mundas.

    No, this is not about letting Kohli go as captain. This is about letting Kohli know his chutiyaap is being noticed. This isn't about the on field decisions at all - don't intentionally muddle the two to sway away the original topic.
     
    Kohli could not sort out differences with a legend of Indian cricket who is nothing but a gentleman and statesman. That shows Kohli's character - the same that he always was. It sends out an absolute wrong message to Indian cricket.
