  1. No thanks. Watched that filth when I was a hard ass Thala fan . Now I'd prefer watching Kalank over that.
  2. @Stradlater Half way through Band of Brothers. It's
  3. One of my friends suggested me to watch "Band of Brothers" . I thought it was a movie , but it turned out an HBO series. Anyone watched it ? How is it ?
  4. Most (and by most I mean 'all') Greeks actually believe that Trojan war has happened in reality. I mean not in the fictional cinematic way as shown in "Troy" , but still it happened. There are archaeological evidences in modern day Turkey which fits every Homer description of the city of Troy.
  5. I've seen a few great movies in this genre like 300, Troy , Gladiator , Saving Private Ryan, Tora Tora Tora , Dunkirk etc and honestly loved every one of them. I've always loved these real films as they carry the psychological edge of real life occurence and make the viewing more gripping. So, apart from those I mentioned above and a few other obvious choices like Schindler's list , Stalingrad etc. are there any other movies that are worth watching? Please suggest.
  6. Public outrage is about the overthrow rule. Not the boundary rule.

    Why didn’t Tendulkar retire after WC2011?

    LMAO. Ailaa of 2011 with a plastic bat was a better batsman than thaila of 2019 with chain kuli ki main kuli bat.
  8. Seriously doubt they would have won it if Archer weren't there. His death bowling was phenomenal in the final which eventually was the difference between the two teams. Don't think a curran or a Willey would have been as effective as him.
  9. He was their highest wicket taker. So yes ....he has made a huge impact. Bowling was a massive weak link for poms before the tournament. But Archer with his pace and steep bounce has given a new dimension to this otherwise one dimensional English bowling attack.

    Will Rohit turn the page in the WC?

    He may have failed in the Semi (got almost an unplayable ball) ......but boy what a tournament he had. Literally carried our batting on his shoulders throughout the league stages. And if not for him, we might have had a very embarrassing world cup. Most likely wouldn't have made the semi. We would have lost to SAF, Pak and Ban if not for him. Without a doubt , the best batsman of this world cup and surely a top 3 odi bat in the world. Take a bow Hitman !

    This is more depressing than India's loss

    Let me ask you a question . Would you pay a penalty for a crime that you haven't committed ? So why should New Zealand pay for a mistake that did not make ? I know that England are not at fault here and we should just blame the stupid rules. And by the way no one's salty here . Just rooting for the wronged side. Again I'm not saying wronged by the opponent. Wronged by the joke that is called rules.

    Life is a great leveller.

    Like most of you , even I've been heart broken by yesterday's events. New Zealand were simply the better team than England but luck deserted them at the worst possible time. But doesn't New Zealand deserve this misfortune ? If you think about it , you'd most probably say yes. It just seemed all along, whether it was during the league stage and even a bit in the Semi final against us , that luck was walking hand in hand with the kiwis. They were extremely lucky in their wins against Bangladesh, West Indies and South Africa. Mushfiqur bottled a simple run out chance off Williamson. De Kock didn't hear a clear edge off him again when the game was on a knives edge. Brathwaite just handed them the win on a plate after doing all the hard work. And even after all this , they reached semis on NRR even though Pakistan played better Cricket than them. And in the Semi final , almost everything went their way. All the close umpire calls went their way (Taylor, Kohli etc ). Rain arrived at the most perfect time for them , enabling their bowlers to take advantage of the early morning conditions on the reserve day. But who knew that luck was going to give them a brutal gut wrenching KLPD if there ever was one. I don't even need to elaborate on that. Roy's lbw call , million near misses, Boult's catch on the boundary , that goddamn throw and on and on and on. The guy on the other extreme is Ben stokes. By losing his team the wt20 three years back , any other player would have been scarred for life. But the way he came back and won his country an even bigger prize is just phenomenal. Point is no matter on which extreme you are on , fate will eventually even it out. Nothing is ever lasting or eternal whether it's fortune or misfortune, happiness or sadness . We just have to keep walking through every spring morning and a stormy night with eyes looking forward and feet firmly on the ground. Thank you New Zealand for teaching me this. Philosophy lesson - 101.
