  1. And in the mean time, Badrinath ...

    That is not when Dileep is the selector. There can be tons of reasons why a batsman can be dropped right after. Even some people in ICF were baying for his blood. And I would not have minded him getting more chances. He did not get them. And that is where it ended. Badrinath should dig these facts if at all he felt he is deserving and was not given enough rope. Why would we blame Dileep for this>>>> His judgement is effective limited to the time of his being chief selector. When Kris Srikanth has taken over, he probably found in consultation with MSD that Badrinath is not good enough. That's where the story ends.
  2. And in the mean time, Badrinath ...

    Well, that's why he is Indian team selector and not just a fan like us. He would have seen the telecast of matches, analyzed what his technique is and because he himself (i.e. Dileep) is an international class batsman, he knows( or has a gut feeling) whether that batsman ( in this case, Badrinath ) is international class or not. I am not necessarily saying Dileep's judgement is correct/accurate but he as a selector is within his rights to believe that blooding a youngster such as Kohli is more beneficial than Badrinath. That is his decision to make/not make. He could go wrong but that is a different issue altogether. It is what he thought is right decision from his analysis/judgement.
  3. And in the mean time, Badrinath ...

    Why are you digging all these threads... Badri piled on runs and hence Dhoni wanted him in the side. Vengsarkar could recognize that Badri was not international quality and hence wanted to drop him. Srini Mama who was a bullying political BCCI head wanted to have Badri in ( probably because of being TN player even if he is not a CSK player) stating that he had great stats etc. etc. Vengsarkar was dropped and another Tamilian Srikanth became selector and had Badri in the Indian side. Badri being Badri did not live upto international standard and eventually dropped.. Here ended the story.>>> What is the use of digging everything now. Vengsarkar might be feeling bitter that he lost his job then unfairly. He atleast had some point (or some complaint about his life etc.). What do you and me have at stake..... to bring up everything again.....
  4. TDP quits NDA

    Why not Orissa too... And Vidharbha area is underdeveloped too. Lot of states are not upto AP... Many states will ask for special status if AP is given that... and rightfully so... The union will not have any funds to do anything as all the money is given to the states. What about Indian army which is paid by the union govt. We will keep bullied by PRC as we cannot pump funds to our military. This is exactly what Jatley was talking about on Wednesday evening.
  5. I think you are too harsh on MSD!!! I will definitely appreciate his move to drop the senior players right ahead of CB series in Australia in 2008. If not for his bold moves, we will not have a Rohit Sharma or another youngster getting so many chances. Azhar is a serial fixer who sold not one or two but many many matches of team INDIA. A real disgrace for Indian cricket (in terms of ethics.).... and yet he had the nerve to defend himself shamelessly in his movie "Azhar". On the other hand, MSD's movie is inspirational to the Indian youth!
  6. Shardul Thakur..ur thoughts?

    I don't have any thoughts.... I just want to slap him on his face!!!!!!! if I find him somewhere outside.
  7. I think the banner should atleast include RSharma's pic than VKohli's. (I may be wrong in recognizing it)> Also, since this is Indian Cricket Fans forum, we should have the Indian captain's pic displayed first (and not the last and is hidden by some admin stuff).
  8. I m really really concerned with that thing though.... Lots n lots of them in GTA these days... and keeping on increasing!!!!!
  9. Happy Holi!

    Happy Holi everyone!!! ( Hope everyone enjoyed the same).
  10. I am not sure if he will succeed even against this opposition in these conditions!!!
  11. Come on. Even if it was state vs state, he made many consistent scores against all other domestic ( or state ) teams and such performances should be rewarded. Not every player need to come through India A. He however deserves a straight place in playing XI for India A in List A matches. He is currently in the queue for Indian national team and not yet selected in the squad.
  12. You must be very very uninformed about Indian domestic cricket if you asked that question. He scored a record 2150 runs in the domestic season, i.e. since November which is a tremendous record.
  13. We all know why Pant had to be benched even when selected in the squad... Don't we!
  14. He deservingly leads the team India being the second/third best ODI batsman for the last few years when Kohli needed rest. I simply do not understand what you have to say.... Mayank deserves his chances based on his performances but he will not get a slot in the top order as of now...RGS and Dhawan are pretty good to be dislodged.
  15. He actually did not go public with that news. He quietly requested BCCI to distribute the extra he got to other support staff. Then BCCI accepted it and God knows how it got into public. Dravid may not have wanted publicity but only do that under the impression of helping the support staff.
  16. Long term ONLY India will dominate cricket

    It would have been amazing thing if Cricket was a widely popular sport if not like soccer but something like that with 30-40 pretty competent teams. (May be field hockey has that popularity I am talking about) Then the domination of India would have been tremendous thing to boost up India in the world scene. But cricket hardly has 10-12 competent teams and some of even these are on the wane. It is like I am great among some non-interested colleagues. Ok, so what? My colleague (an African national and a huge soccer fan) laughs when I talk about cricket world cup. Is Cricket played by that many countries that its "global" tournament is called a world cup.
  17. True but there is RGS and importantly "moonch" Shikar Dhawan!!!
  18. Also, people are failing to notice Karthick did his job today. His little cameo which added valuable runs to team INdian total has been vital. Rahul would not have done much better!!! Rahul is valuable in test cricket and should be the first choice opener along with Vijay. In ODIs and T20s, we have to look for a middle order slot.
  19. Legendary actor Sridevi passes away

  20. Dinesh Karthik looks not bad for T20s though like the way he is batting. He did his job today!!!
  21. DOES ROGET BINNY really does have a point; I really hope that Pandya's non performance in this series is an outlier and not a representative of his potential!!!
  22. 5.3-0- 68 -1

    Is it this spell from this man that lost it for team India....
  23. Time to get Jadeja back in the ODI mix

    Even I would have voted the OP as a troll until I see that mysteriously good average of Jadeja against England and the sample space is not small too. Probably worth looking into for the upcoming Eng series!
  24. 5.3-0- 68 -1

    So, it is 4-0-64-0 today and is similar to the one before. Let us wait for the result before calling him "Match ka Mujrim".
  25. Magnificient Mahendra!!!

    I am not a Dhoni fan like some bhakts here but I could not stop myself from opening this thread. 52 off 28 balls is simply superb performance when you were 23(19) at one stage. I think MSD has rediscoverd himself like SRT has done post WC 2007. This is simply simply superb acceleration from him. The one of the kind we have seen in his early days and the kind of player we all (i.e. Indian Cricket fans) loved Dhoni for (during his long hairy days). http://laughingcolours.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/main-qimg-f3a16f17e4766450b250ab1572a33397-c.jpg In short Sunnyji's words during commentary, "All those doubters of finishing abilities of MSD have got their answers today".
