  1. Should England have delayed declaration?

    I don't understand the need for declaration, it's not as if England were a Test down in the series and hence their desperation to win the Test could be justified. Your team is leading in the Series so why even give an outside chance to the other team, who would do everything to even up. It all reeks of so much overconfidence on part of England. Had they scored 40-50 runs more and only left 70 overs for WI to chase 360, no way in hell would WI chase that without losing quick wickets where either they get All Out for a cheap score or give up their innings half way. A Team should never declare in such a case unless it is one test down or if the Run Rate required to win the match is over 4 rpo for 90 overs. And even then don't declare at all, just let your batsmen get a full smack at the end, get as many runs as possible so that only results possible would be Draw or their own victory. It's not worth to go for a victory even if there is 1 % chance for WI to go at the victory.
  2. 3rd ODI - India vs Srilanka, Pallekele, 27th Aug

    I have a strong feeling that Dhoni will consolidate his position in the team on the back of these useless innings against useless teams in useless series' and will cost India atleast one big historical match before he retires . Maybe during the 2019 WC.
  3. 3rd ODI - India vs Srilanka, Pallekele, 27th Aug

    The Champions trophy defeat against Pakistan is the only match that matters.
  4. Agree, Hindus in WB are fine with the decision otherwise they would be protesting in the streets. If they don't care, then why should others?
  5. If Hindu Bengalis in the State don't care, then why should we ? Mamta Di must be doing something right to get majority of the votes again.
  6. Islamic Laws hai, Hum Kya kar sakte hai. Women should abandon Islam if it's so discriminating against them instead of advocating for a watered down version of Islam.
  7. Growing up in the 90s, it was natural for me to become a Cricket fan because since everyone was obsessed with the Sport so I jumped on the bandwagon too and absolutely loved my Gully Cricket days. However, a lot of youngsters these days don't share the same ethusiasm for the sport and many even have a degrading attitude towards it. Cricket is regarded as a Sport for the unfit guys, for the ones who can't do much of the running and lack stamina. It's an easy sport which anyone can play and where players stand in same place for most of the time hence no need of endurance. Some don't even consider it as a Real Sport as no athleticism is required to play it. It's a Sissy Sport played by those who are afraid of injuries in other rigorous Sports like Football. Now it's a question about how much of it is true or it's just the youngsters going hippy ?
  8. Has India played any meaningful Cricket ever since the Champions Trophy final defeat? One Chewtiya series right after another.
  9. The Western Countries deserve it for exploiting and waging wars in peaceful Muslim countries.

    Why are you comparing linguistic groups with religious groups? Are Muslims concentrated in any one State of India ? Okay, Gujratis and Bengali's might not have a martial background like Punjabi's and Haryanvis and hence their low numbers can be justified but what is stopping Muslims from UP and Bihar ( States with Highest Muslim Population) from joining the Army ? Poverty regions like the Hindi Belt contribute massively to the Armed Forces of which most are Hindus, I don't see any reason why Muslims growing up in the same states and in same living conditions refrain from joining the force. This is a very Purana Dialogue of bringing Gujarati, Bengali people and compare their low numbers with Muslims. Muslims are not a monolithic group that is limited to one or two regions, their presence across all over India is as widespread as that of Hindus.

    Do you think it is a deliberate policy to keep the Number of Muslims in the Armed forces to an absolute minimum? I find it very baffling that a Country with around 17 % Muslim Population has lower than 2 % representation in the Armed Forces. Either they lack the passion to join the Army or are deliberately being kept outside the fold of defense services.
  12. Agree but I don't think Fitness is non-totally non-essential in Cricket, othwise how can you become a good fielder or a good Fast bowler. Even a WK has to be swift and dive around to catch with flexibility.
  13. Agree but even Cricketers have to run full speed on some occasions, like quick running between the wickets, Steaming fast -run-up or Fielding in T20s.

    Once you are outnumbered by them in a certain area then its better to let it go than suffer through systematic Riots, Terrorist attacks, Rapes and Conversions.
  15. And even Golf is part of Olympics these days.
  16. It's Cultural enrichment.
  17. Agree with most points that you have made but it's also a fact that teams especially the ones in SC carry a lot of Unathletic players. Take a look at Ashwin for example, most skilled spinner in India atm and also the laziest player in the team. Unlike other Sports where full fitness is a must, Ashwin gets a free pass due to being the number 1 Spinner and hence his fielding skills are allowed to be compromised. It's just better to play a less athletic but Great Spinner over a More athletic but Average spinner and Skills take precedence over fitness. It was same with a few batsmen like Laxman for example, Excellent batsman but very slow in the field but since there was no other better option to replace him, he was allowed to contribute as a Batter and his lack of athleticism was tolerated. Less said the better about the likes of Sehwag, somehow there is no incentive on being 100 % fit. IMO Fast Bowling is the only discipline of Cricket where a Good Fast Bowler has to be a Good Athlete, well built and must possess raw strength, endurance and stamina.

    What about the future in India? More Muslims than Pakistan plus Shielded by Secularists, Liberals and the media. Thoughts please?
  19. Modi Ji's latest tweet on Kashmir

    Yeh Wahi Bhaisahab hai Jo Ek time pe Manmohan aur Congress ki Soft Policies ke khilaaf kaafi aggressive bayanbaazi kiya karte the aur aaj khud Billi ban gaye hai aur unhi Congressiyo ki jabaan Bol rahe hai.
  20. Wonderful Nothing more satisfying than watching Hindi -Hating Dravidians fighting among themselves.
  21. Modi Ji's latest tweet on Kashmir

    NAMO NAMO.
  22. Agree, Ten Random Eastern European White Girls over Ten Random Ugandan Girls anyday for me. No amount of self-loathing by liberals can ever change that.
  23. Yes Film industries must promote Dark Skinned Actors and Actresses so that feelings of dark skinned people don't get hurt. While we are at it, the actors should also be Short, Ugly and Bald so that the feelings of those who are not handsome with 6 Packs don't get hurt either. And why should the actresses be always hot and Sexy with perfect figure? Isnt it a promotion of a certain qualities as ideal standards of beauty which could lead to development of inferiority complex among those lacking it? Why can't chubby, ugly and obese girls be mainstream actresses as long as their acting skills are up to mark? These should be mass protests all over India against the racist policies of Bollywood.
