  1. Aamir is from pak and Kohli from India = building public relations on both sides of the dispute
  2. Dravid v Sanga - who was better test batsman?

    Kallis like M Hussey quit at the first sign of his decline hence preserving his average. Unlike Ponting, dravid, SRT and other greats before them who dragged their careers out causing a dent in their averages
  3. Again - improving public relations is one of the steps on the pathway to de escalating tensions and hence leading to abolition of tragedies such as the above. You complain about their transgressions and criticise them for it (fair enough) but then strangely you're also critical of them taking steps to improve relations between members of both nations. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Sounds like someone who thrives on the conflict. I wish big talkers like you would put your money where your mouth is and go and enlist for the Indian military and fight on the border for the cause you believe so strongly in.
  4. and hence that's why the two countries need to improve public relations....its one of the steps on the pathway to peace and conflict resolution. its quite easy to conceptualise these ideas, once you've removed hate and bigotry from your mind...you should try it sometime.
  5. Dravid v Sanga - who was better test batsman?

    I find players like Jayawardene, Jaques Kallis, Sangakarra to be good statistical players. They scored consistently big against good to medium opposition (hence attaining high career averages) but at the highest levels of cricket against the most quality pace bowling attacks/in clutch situations, I often found them lacking. (Tests only)
  6. To Khota, There's always more one can do, no one individual or nation is perfect to the Wall they were same country as us only a few years ago and contain mix of many different ethnic backgrounds from India- they are probably as thick skinned as we are
  7. Dravid v Sanga - who was better test batsman?

    look at the breakdown against each team home and away- focus on games vs quality opposition I don't remember Sangakarra playing a calibre of knock like Dravid's vs Aus in Calcutta 2001
  8. Dravid v Sanga - who was better test batsman?

    Dravid easily
  9. Yeah that's exactly why you improve relations between the countries, so that terrorism/killing at the border can stop.
  10. Good way to improve public relations between the two countries, sometimes entertainers have to show politicians and far right nationalists the way forward.
  11. Board president XI Vs New Zealand,Mumbai, Oct 19 201

    poor show by top order, with a bit more composure could have even won this game. Although I'm sure new ball was a lot harder to play than old ball with southee and boult in lineup.
  12. Pakistan will play in ICC world leagues only if India honours MoU

    even if BCCI wanted to play Pakistan (which I'm sure they would as there is plenty of money to be made), would they be able to overrule directives from their own government?
  13. Prithvi Shaw

    I would prefer Prithvi to be earmarked for the test side (in preference to ODIs) as opening batting in tests (after being a fast bowler) is toughest job in cricket. Our test batting lineup is currently crying out for a gun opener. KL has the potential but we are all holding our breath re: whether his body holds up.
  14. P shaw as there's a surplus of spinning allrounders in India currently, Ashwin, jadeja, axar vijay is ageing kl Rahul is injury prone dhawan not suitable for tests therefore there seems to be a shorter pathway for shaw
  15. I think he's best batsmen to come out of Pakistan since Asad shafiq- still some way to go before he fufills his potential
