  1. I strongly disagree. Again, I disagree. But I do hope that he gets better.
  2. Nehra ji speaks

    He has that annoying uncle type habit of repeatedly high-fiving, that was maybe considered cool in 1980. But he's funny AF.
  3. Nehra ji speaks

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m489zSRnkIk This is a fun series of interviews. Note what Nehra says about John Wright and the 2001 series when he was part of that squad. I still remember reading about that Chennai camp that he references - Rediff did a series on it called "Camp John". John Wright is my all-time favorite coach of the Indian team. Led our team through some memorable series. Reportedly that was the series where Sadagopan Ramesh and a couple of others tried to rebel against the tough training regimen that John Wright proposed.
  4. Ishant to lead Delhi in upcoming Ranji season

    The guy hasn't really demonstrated Cricket "intellect" in his long career. Will give him credit for being a workhorse though. Who knows, maybe its not the worst thing for Delhi. But I think they have too much politics and chaos in the Delhi backroom. That's why Gambhir blew up recently. And everybody's accused the DDCA of all kinds of corruption on and off the field for years. So he may just be the puppet captain for the haraamis behind the scenes.
  5. Interest rate in FD

    I tend to root for the underdog. Nobody's perfect. I keep getting sucked into arguing with moroniacs frequently don't I?

    Oh. Did not know this. That's definitely not on.
  7. Interest rate in FD

    Didn't you tharkis have one of those long-ass threads? Why pick on the guy for the words he uses? You guys are being very judgy. Consider his intent beyond the unfortunate language choices. Not saying that you have to treat him with kid gloves. But be a little more accepting is all. You Gaandus are being very clique-y.
  8. Let's all laugh at AUS's ODI performance outside AUS

    Well India reached ODI WC Final in SA. And won a T20 WC in SA. Bangladesh managed 144WWW even in conditions as close to home as any team would get. So let's not get too carried away.

    The guy indicated he's quite a bit older than the average ICF poster. Gotta account for the generation gap, and lack of understanding of shared 'unwritten' forum-etiquette. He's trying to demonstrate that he's a big fan with his constant posting of cricket related "general knowledge". Thoda discount de usko bhai.
  10. What chances has Samson got in the national team? Don't throw around BS if you don't know your facts.
  11. Even with Dhoni present, I have seen a lot of VK's captaincy. He leaves much to be desired. He's reactive A F. I don't want to be too harsh on him, because he should get a lot of credit in other choices he's made as captain. I absolutely love and respect VK for his decision to consistently play 5 bowlers in tests more often than not. It was a brave, and a selfless choice. Not the easiest one, but the correct one. So I am hoping that he keeps growing as skipper, and gets better with his in-game decision making and tactics. He's definitely smart enough. But some guys improve and get better at it, some don't. Time will tell.
  12. Bhuvi-The one who should have got the MoM yesterday

    Someone claimed that Kohli getting it was justified since the batting was harder than the usual flat tracks. By that logic, bowlers who bowl relatively well on flat tracks with massive scores should get MoMs. When was the last time a bowler got it with a 3/60 in a 350 game, where batsmen hit through the line to short boundaries? Bowlers don't get enough credit in cricket. And its especially the case in India. Nobody ever wants to bowl. Because its hard work. And a tougher skill. Any fat ass can pick up a bat and slog. If things were more fair, then a Ravichandran Ashwin would be as big a commercial star as Virat Kohli. Ashwin's test achievements are ridiculously good. And there's no way India would have won as many tests and series as they have without him and Jaddu. They could easily have done it without Kohli, as we saw in Dharamsala. And before some moron alleges it, I'm not some bitter southie saying this. Proud Gujju and member of the so-called "Mumbai Lobby".
  13. Welcome to 4 day tests

    That would be perfect.

    Be nice. OP means well. Let's not pick on someone just because their English is not great. Yeah, he's a bit 'off' in his posts, but let's be a bit more welcoming to our fellow fans.
  15. That's a disproportionate reaction. Yes, he made a mistake, and should be firmly punished. Don't want to send the message that you can get away with a slap on the wrist. But he served a long-ish ban. And was righly pushed to the back of the prospects queue for selection. Its been years already. If he's 'clean', then he should be objectively considered. No harm in 'extra' monitoring of him though.
