    According to Ian O'Brien, Latham and Williamson are NZ's best two players against spin. Our boys should keep their tails up and think that they need to get just 1 wicket and then we can hope to collapse NZ like we collapsed from a similar position. The good thing, even if we give a smallish lead, is that NZ will have to bat 4th which is never easy. At worst, the rain may help us draw this match should NZ post a mammoth total. But Kohli, Rahul, and Rahane need to do better in the 2nd innings. We may have to defend a lot of deliveries if worst comes to worst.
  3. India Today says 2 Pak army divisions have moved to the border.
  4. Good job, we need more Solar energy. Also need more nuclear power plants and to invest in thorium research.

    What is the problem with Sanjay Manjrekar?

    I always turn off the volume when he comes on. I couldn't last test series though, because Viv and him were paired often, and I found Viv to be a very interesting commentator. Luckily the mute button is available this series.
  10. Not sure. The Quint has reconfirmed their story after getting criticism. They are standing by it. They are putting the reputation of their organization on the line. If it turns out false, they will lose credibility and turn out like NDTV. Other journalists aren't really a barometer through which to gauge the legitimacy of the report, as they could just be rubbishing a competitor. The army doesn't like to leak these types of stories to the media, so they likely wouldn't be able to confirm it whether it happened or not. Also News18 is saying the PM is personally monitoring LOC operations since yesterday night. The LOC may be active right now. Over the last few days there have been some 12 infiltration bids. I doubt the PM would pass rumors to The Quint. Looking at its reporting history, it's hardly a BJP sympathetic source. If he wanted to rumor monger, the news would be in a channel like NDTV, as Jaitley is in charge of media communications and he has a great rapport with the English news channels. Pakistan has also put many airspace restrictions in northern areas, such as POK, whether that is precautionary or in response to operations at the LOC is down to speculation. What's funny is that even if this didn't happen, the rumors were enough to send Pakistan's stock market tumbling downward. Gandhi would be proud, damaging the enemy without firing a single bullet. I agree with you though, the public won't be satisfied even if this was true. They want real, visible action.

    Bat first pitch?

    You're right, I was thinking about the innings in the 2nd test where he got injured and came back to bat later. He ended up coming back to bat at 8.

  15. Obviously. Gambhir: Dhoni, when asked why we didn't bring a backup opener during our SA-NZ tour, he said he considers Gambhir the backup opener, even though he wasn't in the squad. Gambhir also came back for the England series. Yuvraj: played both the last 2 WT20s after not exactly setting the world on fire in the last few IPLs. Also played the last Asia cup. They both had numerous chances, since supposedly being ousted. If Dhoni didn't want them, how would they have been selected, let alone played at all?

    He even batted well at #6 in Australia, I think in the last test match there.

    Srinivasan emerges favourite for ICC role

    The ICC asked for it. Don Srini Returns.
  20. Cricinfo saying Bhuvi is frontrunner to play if we play only 1 seamer.
  21. The trade deficit is around $54 billion USD a year between us and China. They would take an enormous financial hit. Also, withdrawing the IWT, we would get more water to Punjab/Haryana/Kashmir.
