  1. Vijay Shankar performance watch

    **** happens, time to move on. KLR had a disastrous start to his test career and came out okay. Maybe this guy will do something similar. Maybe it's better to have a humbling moment like this and bounce back rather than have easy early success and struggles later on.
  2. Rabada's ban overturned, cleared to play in Cape Town

    Aussie scum need to be banned for using worst kind of language to provoke opposition players.
  3. Why does beating Bangladesh feel so good ?

    What is the history of this Nagin dance? Did some SL player do this first and the BD players do it in retaliation?
  4. No, he won't. Because in the minds of uncle Ravi (and bhanja Kohli) all the money in the world cannot buy the experience of Dhoni. DK will either play as a pure batsman or warm the bench. Dhoni is untouchable. Only if he retires or injured will he lose his place in the side.
  5. Pandey and Shankar !! What was that ?

    Yeah, seriously man. Shankar was missing ball after ball in that Mustafizur over it was very, very frustrating to watch. Same ball, same swing and a miss ball after ball. He could have at-least tried a reverse sweep or something. And again, in the last over he very nearly destroyed whatever green sprout of a chance we had with DK playing a blinder. And the shot he got out to, instead of a feeble heave couldn't he have put some power into the shot to take the ball over the boundary? He could have redeemed himself with one single shot and he choked yet again. I think it is curtains for him, at-least for a while. That being said, only chance he got to bat was in the finals chasing, a super high pressure situation. This is why it is necessary to groom younger players by giving them chances sooner rather than later.
  6. Yeah, those tears at the end was a great sight. If only they weren't such certified jerks, I might have felt bad for them.
  7. Thank you DK! Thanks for a fantastic innings and more importantly, saving us all from the ugliness of Bangla toygers' celebration.
  8. Wow, what a blinder from DK! Shankar, ffs take a single man!
  9. They were easy because we won them? In the WI series Dravid batted like a champ in both innings on a mine field of a pitch to help India win. The England team was not an easy opponent in their own backyard.
  10. Dravid took on the responsibility of achieving an overseas test series victory and actually achieved it - WI 2006 and England in 2007. IIRC, the WI series win was the first overseas(outside subcontinent) victory in 20 years. And the win in England in 2007 remains the last overseas test series win. Just because he, Laxman, Sachin, Kumble etc are not vocal and animated on the field doesn't mean they don't have intense desire to win.
  11. Rohit Sharma - Berserk mode ON !!!

    Lord Rohit has woken up from his slumber. l u n g a n s and b a n g b r o s beware!
  12. 20 years back, on this day - Tendulkar outwits Warne

    Not just Sachin, a few other Mumbai batsmen also thrashed Warne like he was a club bowlerin that match. That set the tone for the series. Mumbai batsmen have a history of toying with Warne. Vinod Kambli was the first of them. He mauled Warne taking some 24 run in one over in Sharjah in 1994. YouTube has a video of this.
  13. I see it as excitement, enthusiasm about a new player. Some of the players don't live up to the hype, so what? We are just fans, not full time selectors armed with resources and time to spot the best talent. Positive hype is any-day better than calling a budding cricketer useless. Should fans also go the uncle Ravi way and just talk about only experienced and well established cricketers?
