    G_B_ got a reaction from mancalledsting in Raina is coming back for sure WORLD CUP 2019   
    Raina and England in June when the world cup with me is not a good fix
     
    I take your point that the middle and lower middle order needs to be fixed.

    Bhuvi clearly burnt out, smart posters predicted this. Kohli would have left him out to rest but for butt hurt backlash he received last time.

    No wonder why SA doesn't play Philander in ODIs. We are benching a bowler averaging under 25 for him.

    hmm feel he has some legitimate points in a sense. But could have avoided using words like scum. Even cities like Barcelona have restricted tourism from the rest of Europe as the numbers were just too much. Indian population makes is hard even if you restrict things.

    I think more internal tourism to Goa comes from Mumbai metropolitan region and Bangalore. So North Indians are simply a soft target it seems everybody wants to hit.
     
    Goa does need to target a new caliber of tourists. Even the international tourists are the backpacker types.  I think the rise of airbnb is also contributing to the problem. I doubt the airbnb hosts pay any taxes and the hotels suffer. I was told that groups of college students from Mumbai basically rent 2 airbnb bedrooms apartments for like 10 people for the week. About 2000 rupees a day. Come down to Goa via train. Your talking about highly affordable total trip. A single outing in Mumbai would probably cost more. Those kind of numbers are unsustainable. 
     
    On the whole I am for restricting travel to certain areas. China has restricted access to Macau in terms of mainland tourists as the authorities would not be able to cope.
     
    The rubbish thing is also accurate. Seen this first hand recently in India with my own relatives. Just littering in the streets. Especially when Modiji is making the swatch bharat a key initiative. There comes a time when the tourists really need to have some civic sense.

    G_B_ reacted to velu in We will get a world domianting ODI team if we fix our middle and lower order batting !!!   
    Top #3 batsmen well set.
    We can pick 4 world class bowlers for any condition. 
    And pandya as 5th bowler allrounder.
     
    3 batsmen + 4 bowlers + 1 allroudner = 8 slots fixed
    We need 2 more batsmen to assemble a world doainating ODI team to the likes of 2000s aussie team. 
     
    PS:-
    Dhoni slot is fixed to the team with  fevicol . No use in bothering abt it , good or bad

    but surely at the same time, just cause the earn their livelihood does not mean you behave like **** when your there. This goes for everybody. This is not even about culture. Its about basic respect.
     
    Its also simplistic to say people from the NCR are the reason for livelihood in Goa.They get tourists from all parts. Six times the population of the state in terms of tourists tells me they will be fine if NCR folk stop visiting.
     
    Obviously comments calling people scum need to be avoided at all costs.

    He is way out of line because Goa depends on tourists, stupidity and arrogance to target fellow Indians when you have Israeli and Russian gangs establishing no go areas in parts of the state. 
     
    But expect more such friction between the 2 sides of the Vindhyas. Northies who are employed down South should try to blend in when they come to Southern cities. May be learn a few words in the local language, appreciate their culture/architecture , talk good about their favourite movie stars etc. I have always done that in Hyderabad, Chennai and Bengaluru and trust me it always works. Even Chennai autorickshaw wallahs have refused to take money because I talked flatteringly about their favourite movie star or tried to converse in Tamil. Same with Telugu people but they are even more emotional, you be nice to them and they will treat you like your long lost brother. I have seen what many Northies do once they land here, not all but a sizable chunk. They act as if they own the place, refuse to learn 2 words in the local language, talk to locals rudely, make fun of local language/cuisine, whine, whine, whine..... The lack of respect and the bad manners many of the Northies have is cringeworthy, they may get away with this in Kolkata/Mumbai but down south, don't expect people to fall at your legs after you disrespect them. Compare the behaviour of Southies in north and contrast with the converse. I don't know a Southie in Bengal who doesn't know Hindi/Bengali, at least one language they will master.  Remember one thing, North will depend a lot on South for employment and economic opportunities because of demography and development trends, better to change rather than create trouble......Hindi imposition by Delhi coupled with bad manners can only mean more bad blood in the future.

    We have been seeing this year after year during Pink matches.
    The other team shows full support for the cause and the Indian team just comes and plays like they couldn't care less. At least it looks like that by their non participation .It would be different if it was not a pink match for support and awareness and individually and collectively they don't give a damn . But it is not so. They participate in the match without participating in the cause.
     
    The stadium is painted pink.Even most spectators take the effort to wear something pink to show support.It is not just symbolic. It is to show support and spread awareness.The SA team jerseys are going for auction .
     
    Indian teams non participation in any form is not an oversight. It can't be unless the whole team,management and bcci is colour blind.
    Just wearing pink ribbons won't be such a big effort.
     
    Breast cancer is a world wide issue that effect families all over the world. Just a little support does not cost much .
     
    It is not like the board is losing money because of some conflict of interest.They need not change the jersey,just ribbons or shoes would be enough.
     
    It is not like it is a cultural thing that is alien to the team.
     
    It is not a national issue.
     
    It is a health issue that all women face. Even Indian women ....a lot of them .
     
    So why does the team/ management / bcci not care enough to buy some pink ribbons at least.
     
    I feel sad looking at these matches  and the team looks like a team of uncaring brats.
     
    Would you like to see the Indian team participate in some form or the other?
     
    Yes ?
    No ?
    Don't give a damn?

    G_B_ reacted to Lannister in Pledge your support for SA in the upcoming ODIs.   
    So the day has finally arrived and like we all thought it would be, the selectors yet again failed to come up with any proper plans keeping the Worldcup in mind. An ODI squad filled with has-beens like Karthik, Dhoni, Jadhav, and with no intention to groom new fast bowlers won't be worth of our time. The last time we toured SA, they crushed this team with the score-level of 2-0 and the majority of those players are still representing this squad, which tells you how ineffective and misguided our thought process have been. 
     
    To make this thread more interesting, let's discuss the ideal combination of team Saffers and let's hope for the best they annihilate team Kohli.
