    Pandya ghanta kuch ukhaadegga!
     
    Having the guy in the team itself shows why it's losing in England!
     
    Either strengthen the team with a full time batsman, or get someone like Jadeja in his place. Neither of which will happen and India will lose another test.
     
    Pandya will complete the series with a few lucky wickets and a handful of streaky 20s, enough for MI fans to term him as an all rounder, next Gary Sobers, Kapil Dev II or whatever is their fancy of late.
     
    Doesn't end there, wont be surprised if Shastri and co decides to have his brother have a crack at test cricket as well.
     
    Here comes another whitewash! Unless India drops this pretender one cannot take this team seriously about 'competing' against England!

    Muloghonto got a reaction from sarcastic in Kohli plays with the worst Indian batting line up in last 2 decades   
    Err, until 97, Sachin was in the same boat Virat is, overseas. At HOME he was better off, primarily because Sidhu-Azhar were better players of spin (nevermind Sachin himself) than anyone in this lineup. Saurav-Dravid didn't arrive till late 96 and it wasn't till 97 or so that Sachin had  one other great guy to rely on (Dravid in tests, Saurav in ODIs). 

    Ie, for a decade, Sachin was our only world class batsman in ODIs and only overseas world class batsman. Kohli hasn't done that for more than 5 years max, since he came in with no pressure or expectation to carry the side, playing along giants like Dravid, Tendy, Sehwag, Laxman, etc.

    By 2011, Tendy was done. So you want to compare Virat at his peak with a 38 year old Tendy after 22-23 years of cricket and on the decline. Bravo for making my point.

    Most of the 100s Tendy scored in England vs Caddick, Fraser, Malcolm, Gough, etc. were chanceless.

    A. Because except for Steyn, none of the fast ones were capable of tying Walsh's shoelaces, day in, day out, nevermind the likes of Donald, Waqar,Wasim, McGrath, Ambrose, etc. All of whom Tendy faced. 
    And Tendy pretty much faced two of the greatest spinners ever, who are not comparable in performance to anyone since them: Warne and Murali. And utterly destroyed them. 
    Sure. I have no problems saying Kohli in ODIs is not miles below Tendy the ODI player, though he is definitely below. We have to factor in how much runs have inflated in this era vs perivious. Till mid 2000s, which is like 75% of Tendy's career, ODI runs didnt go routinely past 300 like they do today. 
     
    Besides, consistency in cricket, atleast test cricket, is not just 100s. Its 100s plus the 50s. a score of high 70s is a valuable one in scorelines below 270-250, for eg. Kohli is less consitent in Tests, by a fair margin, in an era where it is easier to score runs, facing less quantity of great bowlers than Tendy. Simple.

    Irrelevant. Every sportsman has good days and bad days. Doesn't change the fact that Wasim/Waqar's bowling >> Anderson, Broad, etc. Whether they got the advantage by tampering or not, is irrelevant to the difficulty faced by Tendy. 
    And yes, he didn't face them at their absolute peak in tests. He did, however, in ODIs. Including some pitches where Kohli would struggle to break out of single digits, like in Toronto. 
     
    One swallow does not make a summer. Facing greater # of great bowlers makes the runs more valuable. simple logic, really.
    And Tendy has both faced and demolished Steyn in his own backyard too. 
    Virat has not done it facing Donald-Pollock, on pitches where 300 is a tough ask. Tendy has. 
    Malinga is good, but by no strech is he a 'great' bowler. neither did he 'destroy' Tendulkar. 
    Not necessarily. None of them have the requisite control (Morkel) or pace (which does not just mean horizontal speed) to matter. 
    They'd be mostly in the Caddick-Fraser etc. category. 
    Nobody is garanteeing anything. i am saying Tendulkar's resume is more stellar. If i face the world grandmaster in chess and draw him, while you never face a grandmaster, it means my resume >> yours. Same logic applies. 
    Consistency is not about average. That much, should be basic.
    BS. This is the kind of pitches where players like Tendulkar, Azharuddin, Ganguly and Sidhu have proven to be Kohli's BAAP. Its clear you never watched tests back in the day, best not comment. All the above have scored runs against far better spinners that this current Indian lineup (which is ordinary against spin) will struggle to break 100 against on those pitches. 
    All except NZ have far worse attack and OZ pitches till mid 2000s didnt give roads for pitches either. 
    You clearly do not know the meaning of the word 'consistent' as it is applied to cricket. 
     
    Here is some homework for you:
    50,50,0,50 has the same average as 150,0,0,0. 
     
    Who, in cricketing terms, is 'more consistent' ?

    Let's also not forget that Tendulkar played in absolute flat pancake pitches which were easy for batting. Today's batsman face much tougher pitches with games regularly over
     
    Not like back then on flat pitches when one team scores 600/6 declared and the other 547 or something
     
    Tendy's numbers are over-inflated sue to flat easy wickets

    90s was the toughest decade for batting. Only 4 batsmen averaged above 50, SRT (58), Lara (52), Steve Waugh (50)....4th one was Gooch but he played for less than half the decade. Aravinda de Silva averaged 46 and Sanga considers him the greatest Sri Lankan batsman of all time.

    The issue that is decisive to beastiality to me, is that of consent. There is no valid, discernable way to say, if a member of another species consents to sex ( Pavlov-ian training does not count either, as it would be without consent the first time for sure). 

    As such, if you hold the view, that i do, that sexual pleasure with another being, without their consent, regardless of what type of being they are (man, woman, hijra, another species, etc), is rape + I don't condone rape on any accord, i would not condone beastiality. 
     
    I am pretty sure, as such, if you let a dog hump you, its pretty sad/sick (coz by my view then, you are letting yourself be raped by the dog, as you too, cannot communicate consent with the dog), but it would not qualify as granting consent, either. 
     
     
    PS: Its pretty technical to say Canada allows beastiality. Because by SC ruling in Canada, beastiality is 'legal', provided no penetration is occuring, as SC in a surprising twist deemed that when verbal/written communication is impossible, it is technically impossible to rule any behaviuor decisively as sexual without penetration of any kind ( in any thing. Ie, in any order of penetration of any kind- aka you cannot french-kiss an animal (it is an act of penetration deriving sexual pleasure). 
    They also asked the parliament to better define the term 'beastiality' as apparently its poorly translated in terms of legal jargon. 
     
    So yes, if one can figure out a way to have sex with an animal in Canada without any penetration of any kind, then go for it and good luck to their sad sex life.

    Nothing foolish about pointing out that it is hypocritical of citizens of such a barbaric nation to call others uncivilized or barbaric.

    Sign that you have no counter, is that you are resorting to simple name-calling. Go convince your grandpa that Aboriginals are not vermins before you lecture us.

    Kohli at the moment is a much better player than Sachin, especially in these conditions.
     
    That passage of play when Curran, Anderson and Stokes made rest of the batsmen hop around, I dont think Sachin would have survived either. Kohli almost did not as well, but then hung on and made it his own.
     
    The only other Indian batsman who can stand upto a lethal spell of English swing bowling is Dravid.

    Virat isn't fit to tie Sachin's shoelaces. Made runs against way lesser bowlers and is yet to demonstrate the decades-old consistency the little master did. 
     
    In terms of tests, he is distinctly the 4th best India has produced, behind Sachin, Sunny and Dravid, in that order.

    Dude please stop. This NEW BJP run India may have a 100 different faults but you are going way overboard. Modi sarkar in 2015 renamed an island (Abdul Kalam Island) after a Muslim, APJ Abdul Kalam....a whole island !!!! Not just any island but probably the most important one where India's Integrated Test Range Missile Facility is located.Even our most famous missile research institute was named after him by BJP govt (Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Missile Complex).
     
    Pakistanis can't name a gully or roundabout after a non Muslim yet somehow want to find faults in India. There is even a proposal pending to name one of our missiles after Kalam. In Pakistan missiles are named after foreign invaders like Babur, Ghori, Ghazni, Abdali.....but that pales in comparison to Gaddafi stadium in Lahore, named after a modern dictator only because he once called Pakistan a citadel of Islam.
     
    And I have links with Madhya Pradesh from my father's side, a state that has been ruled by BJP for the last 15 years. I am aware of recently developed roads and township colonies named after Akbar, Rahim, Iqbal, Maulana Azad, Bismillah Khan, Syed Ahmed Khan etc. So please don't speculate about what  BJP will do, I can assure you that there is a large section within BJP which is way more liberal than the most liberal parties of Pakistan. Shivraj Singh Chouhan visits mosques/dargahs, has Muslim women tie rakhis to him, organizes regular meets and has done major work for upliftment of Muslims in his state. Guess what? He is an RSS man and one of the most powerful leaders of BJP today, CM for 13 years in a row.
