    No Confidence motion against goverment on friday 20th July

    Please don't make statements like these if you are not fully aware of facts. Reality is far from making a simplistic statement such as the bold one above. A public forum like this is probably not the right platform to discuss issues such as these as lot of information and lot of factors get into discussion. It is Andhra leaders/politicians who were short sighted to not let all parts of erstwhile state prosper equally well and not focus only on Hyderabad. And, moreover "did Telangana folks have the opportunity to contribute as much as they could" is an interesting question to ponder over. Telangana people, Andhra people, Lot of Hyderabadi muslims who eventually migrated to Pakistan, Many Maharashtrians from Vidarbha as well as Aurangabad region ( who settled in Hyd as a princely state ), Karnataka people from Bidar and Gulbarga ( again part of Hyderabad state ) and many others ( from North India n other places ) all contributed to the development of Hyderabad in the last 400 odd years. Even if we restrict ourselves to the modern era since 1900, they all gave a fair share to the city and got duly rewarded too.

    Mohammad Kaif retires from all forms of cricket

    You probably meant 4th ODI vs Pak in 2004 which is this. That innings of 71* and the 87 in Natwest final ( which happened just before I was joining my undergrad program) define his career and make him so memorable. He was a good hitter too in his initial days and suddenly seems to have lost any ability to hit sixes from somewhere in 2006. It is unfortunate he faded away similar to Irfan Pathan.

    He deliberately chose to make his announcement on this very day after 16 years!!!

    No single birthplace of mankind, say scientists

    The Multi regional genesis does not really contradict Out of Africa theory. Please look at the sentences of the article which states So, this article only speaks of discarding the existing notion that only "one origin, one population" theory that is being held is incorrect. It does not contradict the overall fact that humans did come out of Africa (albeit in a more complicated way than thought before).
  6. Good way to troll the trollers of the forum!!! Unfortunately, there are some posters out here on ICF ( that you may not have seen ) but will find ways to troll no matter what!
  7. The mention of Kapil Paaji in the same line as Hardik Pandya might make some of you very angry but I just cannot help with the sentence after witnessing his innings today. The aggressive lower order batsman who can tear through the best of the bowlers and who can bowl fast.... is so very rare and will definitely elicit comparisons with the greatest of the games and Pandya has done that today. Hardik Pandya has definitively silenced all the detractors by his innings today of any doubts they might have about his batting. People might say the conditions eased out, the edges flew in safe areas and whatever but his innings has cemented his need and usefulness for team India in all future tours. It is all about his bowling that he needs to improve upon and he will certainly join the club of world class allrounder of the likes of Sobers/Big 4 (botham, hadlee, kapil, khan) and Kallis. Pandya!!! The joy you bring to the hearts of Indian fans is immense... simply immense!!!!! Hats off to you!

    D Chahar- quick rise to first team

    Please read the article about a bowler in Prabhakar's mould. The scorecard of this match says it all as what makes him different/special.

    Is Hardik Pandya the next Kapil Dev for team India

    Sure, it is only a T20 but last three overs figures are: 3-11(dots)-16-4. Then following that with 33 runs off 14 balls with 4 fours and 2 sixers... Surely, the comparison is becoming more real by the day!!! ( at least in white ball cricket) with a daily maturing Hardik Pandya!!!
  10. But in general, Do you not see that Rohit being alert, involved and makes good choices on field. IMO, his bowling changes are almost always spot on. Agreed that in Nidahas trophy, it was a mistake and it took KKD's amazing knock to pull us out. Even then, a good captain not only comes with shrewdness in the field but some kind of luck factor too. Remember, MSD's first stint as captain when he had Joginder Sharma bowling last over. One more good shot by Misbah and it is trophy to Pakistan. But MSD got lot of credit for how he lead the young team for a successful WT20 trophy. So, luck is an integral part of being a captain. It is called "Midas touch" by some others.

    Who should replace Pujara at no.3 in test cricket?

    Please don't bring KL Rahul at number 3. Let him play as opener. He is at his best as a test opener and this makeshift arrangements will only cause further problems. Pujara might very well play this entire Eng tour though going by our selectors, captain etc!
  12. No, it is not. Media does not belong to Sadjeh or anyone. Also, why did you not show your love towards what pollack's comment. What wrong did he say? Why do you always find politics in everything. Why don't you see from the view point of the players and may be he is being honest here!!!

    Pujara's county performance thread

    If you are going as far as 90's to see a good overseas player for Yorkshire, look no further than "the master" himself!!! For a full story: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2011/jun/29/sachin-tendulkar-yorkshire-cricket

    Pujara's county performance thread

    Serious test for Pujara's abilities. It is make or break now..> This 2nd innings of Yorkshire where his team needs him to deliver and take them out of rut!
  15. He was supposed to undergo on Sunday but he could not because it was very late when he arrived on Sunday (from his trip to Russia etc. ). There was no time to give that scheduled Sunday test. The test was taken eventually on 20th and he cleared it. If he is indeed lying about his test and too publicly on his official twitter account, he can easily be called for by media etc that he is lying but have you seen any media report after that tweet from Rohit. You would not have. Also, you would not find any reliable media or even credible sites such as Cricinfo have actually reported that "Rohit did take the Yo-Yo test and he failed it". There you get the answer. I know Rohit is inconsistent/lazy, slow starter and really painful player to support but it is another extreme to find reasons to undermine him at any available occasion.
  16. He has been a match winner for team India many times. He is consistent but certainly can win matches once in a while and that too did that in knockouts of WC/CT and in his initial WT20.

    Khaleel Ahmed is impressive

    Yes, it is only an IPL game and his figures are not that impressive either, but I see tremendous potential in this young lad. He consistently clocks about 140-145 ish and has impressive bounce. He can be groomed to be the answer for India's woes for lacking decent left arm fast bowling option in test/ODI setup.
  19. He has done it by winning it for Rajasthan 10 years ago and now he is doing it again for CSK. Whataplayer.....

    Siddharth Kaul

    I think we are being too harsh on Siddharth. He produced some good spells throughout but probably wilted under presure for this game.
  21. Narine's value is greatly augmented by his transformation as a hard-hitting opener in the last few IPLs. But I would say, he is very hit/miss, as in he cannot probably never make a century like Shane did today. On the other hand, Shane Watson's bowling needs improvement but his pace is what makes difference. That is, he is hard to go for too many because of his pace even if he is not that skilled at it like Narine.
  22. You must know that Palanisamy or whoever it is no match to CB Naidu. The former cannot even tie shoe laces of the latter. Pls don't embarrass CSK with ur comparisons.
