    Commentators For The Asia Cup

    The best duo from our end in English commentary was Dada and Dravid. The others in English are horrible: Bhogle, Manju, Shastri, Siva Hindi commentary is usually good IMO.
  2. HK and Lankans performing similarly thus far with the bat.
  3. I don't mind limited changes for the Australia series as batting in England isn't a good measure for batting in Australia. However, not blooding some potential replacements vs Windies would be foolish. At minimum try a new opener or two.
  4. These expat teams like Hong Kong and UAE need to be banished.

    The nagin strikes

    No Nagin Naach yesterday. I guess Banglas learnt their lesson to not overdo it JK, just wait for their match vs India or Padosiland

    Two matches in Two Days? (Asia Cup)

    Hopefully Hitman loses some weight, he's been looking a little slow between the wickets for a while now!
  7. I don't agree with some parts, but the thing I disagree with the most is the idea that we will succeed regardless. The idea that if we elect some khichdi government or some government led by goofballs who advocate private sector reservation is laughable. To think someone like Mamata or Mulayam will engage in further economic reforms or not napalm all the initiatives Mahatma Modi has made is naive, IMO. Weak governments are the most vulnerable to special interest groups who want this or that law removed/created. Some union with a large chunk of voters can easily get the new Contract-Labor Laws repealed by promising their votes to some regional satrap. Also, the demographic dividend idea is a tired cliche'. In the same video Gupta acknowledges that India has failed to establish a proper lower-level education system. Then he also acknowledges we have missed the sweet spot in time when there was much more opportunities for manufacturing = we have a poorly educated workforce, that workforce is multiplying, and we have missed out on the area of the economy which employs the more unskilled labor. A "demographic" is a "dividend" when one can harness the demographic and use their skills productively. If a demographic doesn't have something to be put to use in or lacks skills for what is available, then all one has are hordes of disaffected, jobless youth. Some dividend!!! Also lol at some of Chacha apologia. There was never any sane rationale for ignoring primary education to establish a handful of universities which end up exporting talent to Western countries. If students don't have the fundamentals from primary education, how exactly are they going to take advantage of a select few magical IITs and the sort?
  8. If that kind of pace and bounce is available, I would focus more on the bowlers. The Aussie lineup would look much weaker without Smith and Warner there. There is no reason not to bundle them out cheaply.

    Best Historical war/action films

    Glory is a decent movie set during the US Civil War which is based off the true story of one of the first African American units in the US Army

    Damning scoreline hides India's competitiveness

    Winning our fair share of tosses(at least 2-3 out of 5) or 1 other good batsman who would have averaged 40 in the series and 1 of the "allrounders" each match showing application and there is a high probability we win the series in my eyes. I blame Ashwin the most of the allrounders because he has the longest pedigree of being a capable-enough batsman, and I blame Rahane of the batsmen as I expect most out of him from his prowess shown during the previous overseas tours even including the most recent SA series!
  11. Chuskis have better net bowlers than the other Asian teams frontline bowlers. Dhoni destroys far superior bowling in the IPL only.

Every other place it takes him at least 57 balls to take a single wicket.He's basically toothless in all but 4 countries, and in 3 of the 4 he is only average. At the home of the 3 other big test teams, Aus/Ind/SA, he doesn't do anything it seems. It's hard to call him "great" with such a record. He is good at best.
  13. I agree with Grumpy Gambhir, we shouldn't play Padosiland in any sport or engage them in any international organization/forum.

    Indian classical music

    This isn't technically Indian classical music, but it is nice and I didn't want to make a separate thread, so here it is
