  1. Should BCCI send the Indian team to CT or No?

    BCCI should make a stance on this issue. What last few months the ICC and other boards were doing when BCCI was at internal tussle is the real arrogance and back-stabbing to push India to a corner. 1) The actual revenue cut will not impact much in the long run given India can always get them with few more IPL matches 2) The biggest problem is the administrative change that is the problem here. Why should the ICC tell BCCI which country to play and sign a contract? Why are they poking noses inside the off season other than ICC events. The ICC can easily make India play Pakies or if we pull-out, we have to compensate the terrorists. What is the need of increase in votes to 15 ?Agreed if all 15 are member countries but the catch here is independent administrator and women director? Why this change was necessary now? It has been incorporated not for development of cricket but for politics and vested interest of ECB and CA. 3.) The writing is in the wall here, .now every member know they can play around with India , the ICC can decide and make contracts for all the other members with series against India that for sure India has to fullfill or compensate them. How in the world is this fair from all other members? This is exact reason why WI,ZIM,BD and SL have voted against India starting here. The biggest losers cloud be the smaller boards who will become lap dogs of some countries now. Agree or not stonger India is necessary for the growth of game. 4) Bloody ICC if it was fair, why the umpteen meetings were held before coming to changes without any BCCI representative? This has been sleezy and planned back-stabbing from ECB and CA with the shameless bastard Manohar, who at every given oppurtunity runs away when faced with Heat. BCCI biggest mistake was bringing bringing back this idiot. Dare say even sharad powar could have been a better choice than this traitor 5.) I would want BCCI form parallel body similar body to ICC and develop cricket with AFG , Scotland, Ireland, Namibia,Nepal for time being. Im Sure fans will watch India playing new countries anyway the international matches already is very monotonous. If this happens im sure in a jiffy BD, SA, SL, WI, NZ, CSA will join this parallel body. BCCI and other members are rest assured of revenue much better than this model. Hate to say,what BCCI needs at this point is Lalit Modi and Srini to fight this out. To hell with arrogance
  2. Congrats India!

    Kudos to Aussies for making this series really competitive. Well played and respect was earned. Hope India could fight like this next year in Aussie Land.
  3. Day 4 predictions

    India to end up with 373 with Lead of 286. And Oz to end up with 80 for 3
  4. Losing respect for Virat Kohli, says Ian Healy on sledging

    As if Kohli is waiting for Mr.Healy respect. Just laugh off. First he should see his back before opening mouth on sledging
  5. Aussies batted really well

    Credit where it is due..wonderful show of grit by Aussies..fair play to them. Only if Indian batters had their head right..this could have been one hell of a series similar to the 2005 Ashes. Only wish is somehow Indian batters could show the grit and resolve atleast 50% shown by Aussie batters and don't fold like pack of cards tomorrow
  6. Lets hope our guys show some real determination the second time around.. Oz has to earn the victory if they want it.. No easy wickets to them..
  7. RCB already looks hell of an IPl squad

    Hope RCB buys young fast bowlers ala Thampi and other prospects. Virat being captain of RCB, they will get the backing and will be fast tracked to India LOI atleast
  8. Whinging Morgan in Media

    Don't think so. This umpire was officiating in Aus vs Pak ODI last week. He did fairly well. Without DRS , it was tough to tell there was inside edge. As I said in other thread, let poms whine. We have suffered such things hell a lot of times pre DRS days
  9. Pandya, does he add anything to the team?

    India can't afford to lose this guys potential. Development of fast bowling allrounders takes time. It is the investment we need to make for long term. Coming to this thread, just let loose this guy at @4 or around 8`14 overs where usually spinners operate. He is clean striker..even if he plays 10-15 balls, we would end up with above par scores most times. Coming in at death with few deliveries against best death bowlers is tough for him at this stage of career. His bowling is still work in progress. Team management need to be wise in maximizing the resources at hand
  10. Selectors haven't done a good job!

    Atleast half of the team in this match should not be playing for T20I.. Yuvi, Dhoni, Pandey, Nehra, Raina .. It is embarrassing performance in T20 with India having the IPL.. arguably the biggest T20 league in the world..
  11. B Thampi - Kerala Fast Bowler

    Warrior too bowled well. But the other guy was mighty impressive. Sandeep seems to get more bounce
  12. B Thampi - Kerala Fast Bowler

    This guy got ideal action and pace for the reverse swinging Yorkers at death overs. Should be fast tracked to limited over side ASAP! Atleast fast bowlers with potential have to be introduced early. No point in bowling them to pulp in domestics. And he looks strong enough with athletic body. But signs are promising. Hope he will serves India some day
  13. B Thampi - Kerala Fast Bowler

    His Second over he was touching 144 clicks in one ball other being around 140-142
  14. B Thampi - Kerala Fast Bowler

    Guys, if possible tune into Star Sports to watch T20 match between -Kerala and Andra -Kerala Fast bowler named Thampi is bowling with fair amount of Pace. He is hitting more than 140 KPH almost every ball which is rarity in Indian domestic. He looks faster than Sandeep warrior. As I type he has beaten H.Vihari for pace Anyone knows about him. Looks a prospect for national team
  15. Mishra and his struggles

    Should probably the last time he should bowl in test cricket unless he picks bagful of wickets today. Time to look into future
