    Do you feel ashamed to have ever supported Arvind Kejriwal?

    No, I have not been living in India for a long time. I am not up to date for sure. My understanding of him is essentially through his miraculous success in 2013 and 2015 from literally no background. The people of Delhi seem to be very happy when interviewed before 2015 elections about those 49 days of Acche Din. He dissolved the assembly when he could not pass the anti-corruption bill rather than compromise to not pass the bill in 2014. I could be mistaken in my assessment and he is probably not doing that well as he promised to be initially.

    @Gollum, I am surprised that even a balanced view person like you is against Kejriwal. Is n't he the first politician who came from no background and still won elections exemplifying "for the people, by the people and of the people" rhetoric of a true democracy. I think he is certainly less corrupt than most of our Netas and deserves our respect and support to lead our country forward with his policies.

  4. Making Krunal bow 18th Over is a very big NO NO!!! Hardik was still available. Otherwise, yes he led well to get to MI fourth title!
  5. He has done it by winning it for Rajasthan 10 years ago and now he is doing it again for CSK. Whataplayer.....
  6. Time for Watto to shine again the all important match!!!!!

    Match 56, MI vs KKR @ Mumbai, 8.00 PM IST , 5th May 2019

    Do you really think Uthappa need to be paid to perform like he did today.> He just played what he could... Ambani ji will not waste money on paying Uthapp kind of people.
  8. I am really surprised and should say very very impressed by the way DD has fought till the last over even though they were chasing a mammoth total and loosing wickets. They may be out of this IPL but they have most of the bases covered for having a very successful campaign next year. They just need to learn the knack of "not loosing" wickets in key times and build patnerships like "Vijay-Pant" one. I felt Prithvi's wicket, Munro's wicket and Shreyas's wicket were unnecessarily lost (i.e. gifted away to opposition). I can see Delhi going only way up from the current state.

    Delhi has all the ingredients to be a very good team

    Looks like it is an accurate observation that Delhi has all the ingredients and now they are tasting their success by entering into the playoffs!!! Well played, Delhi youngsters... May you keep this up and try to enter into playoffs in the upcoming seasons too and display your abilities with performances.

    Happy Birthday to Sachin Tendulkar

    Happy bday SRT!
  11. I would have preferred that they were made to do some social service hours like they make them do in Canada or other western countries!

    Did anybody watch the movie... Please tell us what you think of the movie. Is it worth watching???

    CSK - Only Undefeated team so far !!!

    Why is CSK so unstoppable.. But for MI, CSK could defeat every other team even from unfathomable situations.... What is the solution to stop this juggernaut from CSK. There is no doubt that they will be in top 2 qualifiers... Can they be stopped from getting 4th title...
  14. It is not about the best figures of 6 for 12 in an IPL match, nor about the fact that he is only 22 but most of the wickets seem to have come from bowled/keeper catch or close catches. His action, gait and confidence is very reminiscent of the great WI bowlers of the past such as Ambrose, Walsh etc. It will be great to see that kind of WI bowlers back frightening the opposition batsmen. Can we expect him to lead that kind of attacks in the coming future.

    Very bad post bro!!!!!!!!!!! It is not at all funny!
  16. Shashi Tharoor offers a perspective. I know there are threads related to this in the past on ICF. But Shashi Tharoor's points do make sense. Let us discuss on this very important factor related to Indian identity/unity which is its national language.
  17. Is that a complement or a belittlement?
  18. BTW< Inzi actually has a very high average in test matches won..> Much higher than the other legends from sub-continent at least and he is particularly good in 4th innings which most of our best batsmen cannot say. Remember, we could not chase 120 vs WI with a very good batting lineup but Inzi saved Pakistan with a 138* in the great escape vs Bangladesh.... It is the inspirational leadership of Imran Khan that Inzi first flowered. If we are honest with ourselves, it is hard to get one player to contribute so much for his national team as Imran Khan did for Pakistan. Having said all this, none of the above means I will pick him above a SRT or Dravid in a test XI.
  19. Is posting on Facebook no good like it was few years ago? @mishra and @Gollum, why do you think so/

    How is Harbhajan not getting called for chucking?

    No, I had believed the "moon landing hoax" conspiracy theorists for a long while before knowing what could be really true. All this cold war era show off and USSR is way ahead of US in cold war and the reasons given in "Did we land on moon" looked good for me during my adolescence. But the reality is, if the moon landing were fake, the soviets could have easily found it. In fact, they traced the Americans going all the way upto moon and hence could not put up any statement against it (they would not have NEVER missed an opportunity to say a statement against in that era). Also, we have real moon soil/rock available in many research labs (brought by the astronauts) that is older than earth's crust and cannot be available anywhere here. If you are genuinely interested in knowing whether this is fake or not, there are many good resources available and this wiki page is not a bad start: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_landing_conspiracy_theories. It explains all the conspiracies and the rebuttals for the conspiracies too.

    Off topic but What do you intend to say here... That they just landed in a studio in Arkansas... If you think so, pls do not make it a fact and mix that with your analogies of tamasha premier league... and spoil your otherwise witty comment.
  22. When everyone including King Kohli and the great ABDV could not show up past single digits, Parthiv Patel stood up and had given RCB a respectable score. @Gollum, this is the value that Parthiv Patel can add. With adequate support, he is a good test kind of batsman. If only if he was not that bad with his keeping....

    I have observed that Willow is good only for TV viewers and and not that good otherwise. Discontinued my Willow subscription. Hotstar is pretty good (although gives login problems sometimes)!

    Say sorry to Maahi!!!!!!

    I think Dhoni disproved all his critics and proved that he is as good as his old version... He has not just supported Kohli but dominated for short bursts of time. I know it is time Dhoni has to retire but he seems to have a final flourish before he leaves. ICF has been very critical on Dhoni in the last past few months/years. It is high team he gets the credit he deserves.... Let us start that by apologizing him...
  25. I would not worry at at all for Dhawan's form in ICC tournaments. No matter what his prior form is, he IS A BEAST in ICC tournaments.
