  1. i dont know about fair result. After all i dont think you can fluke a test match like you can a t20. I mean if you want fair result then india couldve/shouldve won 1st 4th and 5th match but didnt happen so 4-1 is the correct result.
  2. idk why india has such a defeatist mindset where after every overseas tour where they lose, its always ''look at the positives''. This happened against AUS in 2014, SA in 2017 and now here. Why do they have such low expectations that they just need to compete? India has more double the population of all cricketing teams combined, and its the only sport india is good at while AUS has 3 sports, SA NZ have rugby and ENG has football and rugby too. So how is it too much to expect india to win overseas and not be satisfied with ''competing''? Youll never hear AUS or SA saying that
  3. india is touring aus this year where no smith AND warner will be playing. If they still cant win the series (honestly i predict they wont even win one match) then there is no hope for the team
  4. India's Shaun Marsh. So much talent but but not enough to show for it
  5. This. Imagine how wore the black guy (in this case Zondo, or bavuma in tests) feel like when they surely know they are not in the team for merit and just a quota player. Not good for both whites and blacks
  6. very tough conditions though. give him some benefit of the doubt because almost everyone would struggle with these conditions
  7. 220ish should be a very tough chase. 250+ is india's game i reckon, even if AB plays a great innings this pitch is a minefield
  8. wont be long where west indies will be finished. Cant really blame either side though when money is such an issue
  9. thats a big maybe based on what we saw in the 1st test. Besides thats only 1 bowler that you have named which is MAYBE better than philander. He's a much better bowler than you think
  10. well if you wanna talk about optimism then no one shouldve given india a chance in this series, afterall we've never won there. Compared to past performances i guess the last two are not so bad but at the end of the day it should be atleast expected to not get run out twice in a match, not chase wide deliveries and play **** shot. Sure we were never going to chase 280 but we barely got half of that... i dont think it was a fantasy to expect a little better fight
  11. They won in 2000 by 2-0. Drew in 2008 and 2010 and were leading the series 1-0 both times. Someone should've told him that
  12. They'll win 0 against Australia, that's a given. If we get a absolute road we might get a draw... But I doubt it. Against England I can see a repeat of 2014 series, we will be completely undone by Anderson and broad or whoever England pick. Let's be honest, this team isn't good enough, no Indian team is. Heck if we pick an all time Indian xi I will still bet them to lose against this South Africa and this Australia. We've just not been good enough
  13. Fight and aggression is one thing, skills another. Ashwin took 0 wickets even against a left hander, he's not gonna do much better. Indian pacers..... Yeah they have no hope
  14. hes a bowling machine. Im not even sure he has pace, he regularly looks like hes bowling at 130-135kph, for someone so tall has 0 bouncer or a short pitched weapon. but i wont be surprised to see him dropped next match then play all 5 in England...... based on 1 spell at Lords lol
  15. because pujara got run out.... he wouldnt have flopped like rohit if he was still playing
  16. I mean thats what i thought 4 yrs ago when we had young batsmen and young fast bowlers (umesh, shami, varun so on). seems like the batsmen have taken the next step but the bowlers are still the same..... inconsistent as ****. Lets hope these guys are different
