  1. Yeah if the target was a hefty 280-290, the situation would've been ripe for the archetypal Pakistani collapse, but they still have batsmen to execute the chase. Shadab's certainly no mug with the bat.
  2. I vividly remember Kallis single handedly puncturing the chase of 377 against Straya after Smith and AB got it off to a flier.
  3. One of the more selfish innings from Hashim.
  4. An immensely underrated Indian cricketer who was the mainstay of the bowling attack in the early/mid 2000s. His ODI record is stellar for an Indian bowler and I'll always remember his spell at Adelaide in 2003. He's more than qualified to comment on Dhoni and all things Indian cricket.
  5. Ajit seems to be a cerebral and objective individual, which there's a dearth of in Indian cricketing fraternity. As a player, he probably isn't in the upper echelon in the annals of Indian cricket like with Dhoni, Dev, Tendulkar. Gavaskar etc(Agarkar was a great ODI bowler), but those are the guys like him and Aakash Chopra that sometimes understand the game better because it comes a little tougher to them. They understand what wins and loses, what they have to do to get an advantage and really understand the game, which he does. He inherently understands the game, and not everybody does. There's a reason why he's an effective analyst and someone I've immense respect for along with Aakash.
  6. Yeah I think his spot's a foregone conclusion at this juncture of time. The Kiwis will certainly be a tougher proposition than Australia (lump in throat as I say this).
  7. It's a footy forum that I'm sure numerous members here are aware of. I'm not sure whether I'm permitted to namedrop or link the website.
  8. A plethora of posts in the Aussie forum are openly smirking over helping MSD into the Indian squad for the world cup. Almost a pyrrhic victory of sorts. It'll be interesting to look back at this series victory in a few months from a contextual standpoint.
  9. Warnie saying Dhoni loves his own drama.
  10. If Kedar was capable of hitting out , why did Dhoni farm the strike that whole over, playing 5 dot balls?
  11. Couldn't he have taken a single for Jadhav to have a tonk? Why was he farming the strike the whole over?
  12. Overall the cricket's been a perpetual snoozefest in this series.
  13. Imagine if Pant, and Gill were blooded into the team by now.
  14. Jadeja's inability to produce dot balls may prove to be a factor. The wicket seems a bit two paced and provides assistance with the new ball. They need to be strategic with this chase, especially with rotating the strike at will.
  15. He's parochial and still believes he's residing in the 1990s.
  16. Jadeja's unable to even bowl a dot ball.
  17. Hard to believe he's related to Tugga. Did you see his exchangr with Vaughan a few weeks back?
  18. GoldenSun

    Get Dhonified !!!

    Top notch bootlicking this is. He probably doesn't watch too much cricket and classifies himself as a fanboy with no objectivity.
  19. It's Afrikaaner, as he's an Australian of South African origin. Emigrated during his pre teen years to Queensland.
  20. How's the weather forecast by any chance?
  21. It seems like this deck's a throwback to the 2014-15 tour where a glut of runs were scored.
  22. I'd probably have kept Rahul as keeper taking into consideration Pant's tired. Proactive captaincy.
  23. In a myriad of ways , it was evocative of Boxing Day 2011 when India collapsed on the morning of day 3 , from 214-2 to 282 all out. A first innings total of 350-400 was pertinent considering how nightmarish a hefty 4th innings chase would prove and inevitably has.
