  1. “He was an extraordinary cricketer who battled incredible discrimination,” said historian Ramachandra Guha, whose 2002 book, A Corner of A Foreign Field, chronicles, among many other things, the life of the Palwankar brothers. But one of India’s first world-class players, and its first Dalit cricketer, has been neatly brushed out of the annals of history, save a handful of textual records and oral histories — an indictment of both India’s cricket writing and the erasure of Dalit heroes from mainstream history and consciousness. An Indian great The eldest of four brothers, Baloo was born in 1875 in Dharwad to a family of leather workers but his father was in the army. Baloo and his brother Shivram learnt to play cricket with equipment discarded by officers in Pune. “The army held out the promise of a degree of equality for Dalits impossible elsewhere in a caste-ridden society,” explained Shraddha Kumbhojkar, a professor at Savitribai Phule Pune University. Indian cricket at the time was organised on caste and faith lines and the pinnacle of the season was a tournament in Bombay, where Hindu, Parsi, British, and, later, Muslim teams competed in three-day matches. Hindus in Pune had started a club but were in two minds over whether to invite Baloo. He was certainly the most talented bowler but breaking caste taboos was an anathema. But once picked, Baloo immediately made his presence felt and helped his team notch up several victories against the Europeans. “The Hindu team was otherwise weak. Baloo helped them match the British,” said Sadanand More, a Marathi historian. https://www.hindustantimes.com/sports/india-s-first-dalit-cricketer-palwankar-baloo-fought-against-caste-barriers-on-the-field-and-off-it/story-Cz10GUgvkQoLI4b7fhNVEO.html
  2. Leaving out captaincy, just as wk-bat in TESTS only Dhoni 90 matches 4875 runs 38.1 avg 224 HS 6 100s Rahim Matches 65 Runs 3962 Avg 35.62 HS 219 100s 6 How are their keeping skills in longer format? Rahim plays weak oppositions more, but then he didn't have cushion of strong batting either.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    Average difference of 0.8 is hardly much. Those numbers show that for most of that decade (first 8 years) it was easier for Ponting. Only in last 2 years, Indian team went ahead and still overall difference wasn't much. Matches involving Ponting or SRT. First 9 years of 2000s.

  7. And you're not loyal to your country too. This is parameter to judge loyalty for a person. Sure, question was probably a cheap comment on him. But picking it and replying in this manner brings Kohli at lower level.
  8. These types of statements you expect from cheap trolls or politicians who ask people to go to Pakistan. Guess Kohli is trying to compete with them.

    How many times batsmen crossed 900 in tests in 90s? How was bowling ratings during same period? 7 calendar years where he was ranked 1 test bat. Guess the 2nd best number for an Indian batsman.
