    Gollum reacted to Moochad in [POLL] How many regulation catches will we drop in England test series and who will top the charts?   
    Shami will lead in drops off his bowling, he will play all 5 and regularly creates chances. Kohli will drop the most and then make angry faces at his teammates when they follow his lead

    Gollum got a reaction from adi B in [POLL] How many regulation catches will we drop in England test series and who will top the charts?   
    Can confidently state that if we catch better than Poms we will win even if we carry over our batting/bowling form from SA. But if we repeat our normal catching routine here we can at max draw the series provided all our main batsmen fire at 150% of their potential. We lost in SA only and only because of catching and our fate here solely depends on this oft underlooked department of the game.

    I have seen people saying that he sucks only in slip catching, but this guy drops catches everywhere - at the circle, at boundary. 
     
    Slip catching is worst and he needs to stay away from slips. It won't solve the problem but reduce the number of drops from him.

    For reference sake quoting the relevant post from the SA series. We dropped 11 there (all in the 1st 2 tests) and in the only test we won it was mainly because we dropped none and they dropped 5 !!!!
     
    Coming to this tour make your predictions, remember this is a 5 test series. 
     
    Here are mine:
     
    We'll drop 18 catches in total.
    Kohli will top the charts with 6 drops.
    Most affected bowler will be Umesh.

    Good thread Gollum was thinking about this thing only. Overseas we drop crucial catches that has costed us a lot but we ignore this issue again and again.

    Gollum reacted to SecondSlip in Dhoni took to ball to show it to bowling coach - Shastri   
    I always knew he was never retiring. He thinks he is bigger than the team.
     
    I mean the guy is totally mediocre in T20 cricket yet he’s clinging on to our T20 side like a mosquito even when there are at least 4-5 other WKs such as Karthik, Pant, Kishan, Samson, KL Rahul etc. Who deserve to be selected instead of him. Yet he won’t retire from the format  
     
    Retiring from ODIs is a very far fetched idea.

    He should have some shame and retire but well like most of the Asian players he is just prolonging his career.

    He also gave away his gloves to a fan after thr match to let the fan examine his gloves I guess..
    Sab drama queens.
     
    Either dhoni is trolling people like he did in his infamour innings....or dhoni got emotional and wanted to retire but kohli and his cheerleader fell at his feet  and cried....arey review kaun lega....
     
    Kohli...uski slow batting se dar nahi lagta saahib....
    Apne reviews se lagta hai

    Gollum reacted to express bowling in Bhuvi kumar ....on flat tracks without swing.   
    We choose our ODI teams based on IPL performances, which is played in the T20 format.  (  Until it comes to Rahul )
     
    Most of our ODI selection faux pas are due to this.
     
    Think of questions regarding ODI selections from this point of view and you will get the answers.
     
    Our team management do not have the ability to demarcate between these 2 formats. This has lead to Pandey playing T20Is and Raina and Rayudu being chosen for the ODI squad.
     
    Same with Bhuvi ...  top T20 bowler ...  so automatic choice in ODI team irrespective of performances in this format.

    Shami has to play in WC, genuine wicket taker unlike these defensive bowlers.

    Gollum got a reaction from abc in Its disturbing to see Muslims being targeted : Tapsee Pannu   
    1. Lynching illegal...then why do BJP Ministers felicitate lynchers as if they are Olympic Gold medalists? Why are gau rakshaks so bloodthirsty? Why hasn't this spate of killings awakened unequivocal condemnation from the Hindu society? In Bangladesh there were rampant killings of bloggers/Hindus/secularists and Hasina put 20,000+ Islamic fanatics behind bars...now situation is much better. Why does Indian govt find it fit to celebrate such murderous law breaking scoundrels?
     
    2. If you want to ban cow slaughter who will take care of aged cows? Poor farmers may get a few thousands of rupees if they sell old cattle but how do you expect them to take care of useless cows? What of male cows (bulls) which have lost relevance because of mechanized farming? Is the Indian society ready to compensate the poor farmers in return for maintaining their aged cattle or should they suffer? As such farmer suicide and debt burden is a real issue, uske upar yeh sab.
     
    3. Should leather industry and other small scale industries in India that depend on beef industry (hide, bones, horns) be banned? Who will take care of employment of potentially millions of people? Beef exporters who generate valuable forex revenue...should they also suffer? Is there any plan at place to mitigate the effect on our economy if beef ban goes ahead?
     
    4. Bull, buffalo aren't holy (racism/casteism?) yet those who consume them too are targets of so called thekedars of Hinduism . In Kamakhya (Shakti Peeth, over 1000 years old and very important) I have seen dozens of buffalos being slaughtered at the same time by the priests. So should Kamakhya be shut down and all those people relegated from the folds of Hinduism because someone sitting in Nagpur or Gorakhpur doesn't believe in that? Or are they any lesser Hindus? No wonder that region is ripe for conversion.
     
    5. If some Hindus find cow holy they can abstain from eating it. But why force minorities, lower castes, tribals and other Hindus who relish beef to follow their diktat..why this Talibanization of India? I am vegetarian but don't mind my friends/colleagues/cousins eating meat..why should I bother unless they force feed me the meat? If Muslims force feed Hindus beef or mix it in restaurant dishes fraudulently I will oppose them. 
     
    6. Beef= Cow, Bull, Buffalo....many sub categories. If cow is holy why lynch buffalo eaters or in some cases people carrying meat (even mutton) without investigating what type it is? In many cases innocents may be killed and cow meat planted on them. Tomorrow I have a tiff with someone, I can kill that person and plant beef on him...how is this any different from Pakistan's blasphemy law? To me it sounds more like a tactic to bully a section of society rather than any particular love for cow.
     
    7. Cow slaughter is banned in some states, allowed in others. Ask BJP to try banning it in Goa and NE States they rule because there majority have been consuming beef for centuries. But they won't do that because they need to win elections. Then why harass people from other states? If these gau rakshaks have the balls let them try their stunts in these BJP ruled states in North East. Will Sinha be as supportive of them there?
     
    8. 'Nothing in Quran that they have to slaughter cow'...Quran isn't a book about food....is there any order about not eating cow in Quran? In Hindu texts (which one?) is there any concrete instruction that cow slaughter is illegal? You can give me sources and I will provide you counter from Hindu texts themselves...there is no uniform opinion in Hinduism about consumption of cow. Just letting you know there is evidence that ancient Indians consumed beef (even in Vedic period). Jainism steered us towards vegetarianism. Besides why talk only about Quran? What about Bible? What about customs followed by our tribals and animistic faiths? Why impose the views of some over the entire populace?
     
    9. Are Arab countries our role models? Some of them stone women to death, should we follow that as well? Or cover our women in ninja costume? Besides on closer reading it seems pork/alcohol is banned only for Muslims meaning others are free to have them. Even in Pakistan it seems Hindus can consume pork/alcohol....we are even more intolerant than Pakistanis in this regard . Why can't we allow similar privileges to beef eating communities in India?
     
    P.S Just checked, pork isn't banned in advanced Islamic countries, just some restrictions and non Muslims aren't targeted.
