    ShoonyaSifar got a reaction from kirkutfan in I hope this doesn’t remain a regret   
    I doubt if any of our players from the current batch see playing vs Pakistan as such a big deal. You could see that in the way we approach the LOIs played in the last 8-10 years. Hardly any fuss from the Indian players and management, the media does do some tamasha but that's their job. We have been so dominant in this decade (Played 19 LOIs, won 14, lost 5) that even the H2H historical record is immaterial.
     
    Can't see why they will regret at all. They are getting to play vs the top sides more often and in IPL, they get to mix with most superstars of world cricket.

    ShoonyaSifar got a reaction from Skipper in Breaking news : chaos in CSK camp, rift between Dhoni and Raina   
    Another player thrown under the bus by Dhoni. Srini bullies Raina publicly taking Dhoni's name, expectedly Dhoni refuses to stand up for his 'friend' of over a decade.

    ShoonyaSifar got a reaction from Skipper in At least 10 members of the Chennai Super Kings contingent have tested positive for Covid-19; one India player among them   
    Shameful attempts by Srini mama to bully Raina and publicly abuse him at a time he is going through a personal tragedy. The insinuation of asking for a room with balcony (how dare he ask for a room equivalent to what Dhoni gets) being used to call him a prima donna! Add to it the conceited story of a rift with Dhoni. Imagine giving 12-13 years of your career to a franchise (at the cost of your International career) and then getting publicly abused by the owner of the team. 
     
    I hope Raina comes out and spills the beans on the 2013 fixing saga to expose Srini.

    Apparently an anti-corruption crusader! He thinks Srini is the cleanest guy around. Well I am sure he thinks 2013 CSK fixing saga was managed as well to tarnish Srini's clean image.
     
    Basically all his life, he's been jealous of other successful people - first Vajpayee, then Jayalalitha (he supports Sasikala), P. Chidambaram, Arun Jaitley and off late Nirmala Sitharaman. All this while, all he has got is a gang of twitter followers and a phoney propaganda website called pgurus.com which he runs with some NRIs. No one responds to his media bytes but all it will take is one public attack on him by any of those people who he often targets and we will see his royal meltdown.
     
    A megalomaniac (with great academic credentials) if there ever was one!

    Safe to say we will not make it to the finals. A team that can’t compete away from home despite such resources at its disposal does not deserve anything but scorn.

    ShoonyaSifar got a reaction from nevada in MS Dhoni didn’t give enough quality players to Virat Kohli, like Sourav Ganguly gave to India’: Gautam Gambhir   
    Ganguly pulled Indian team out of the pits of match fixing. Under Dhoni, the word fixing came back to our Indian cricket with direct involvement of the IPL team Dhoni was part of. Add to it the whole Rhiti sports episode, Test cricket becoming 2nd priority for the captain, the whole concept of optional practice, our away test record going to the pits and captain retiring from test cricket in the middle of a tour.
     
    Ganguly began the real transformation (foreign coach, focus on away test wins, backing young players, looking for pace bowlers, aggression on the field etc)  which subsequent captains benefitted from, but unfortunately none of them have been able to keep the legacy going on for too long. Biggest damage  to that legacy was done under Dhoni after the 2011 WC, when despite a 0-8 thrashing he shamelessly clung onto captaincy taking ZERO responsibility. 
     
    Ganguly also had the grace to retire from the game (albeit after getting a nudge from Cheeka) and did not hang on shamelessly like Dhoni despite being way too over the hill.
     
    Watch any of the players who played under Dada and Dhoni - Sehwag, VVS, Yuvi, Gambhir, Bhajji, Zak or Nehra talk publicly on camera, all rate Dada better than Dhoni as a captain. That should be the end of the debate.

    ShoonyaSifar got a reaction from nevada in Why can't our stars produce (or even fluke) innings like Blackwood?   
    Because we always pick Test batsmen who bat in top 4 for their respective states and the minimum benchmark is a 50+ average. Batting with the lower order is something they hardly do in their formative years.
     
    Also, have we ever picked a test batsman with a FC batting average of under 35? People like Anustup Mazumdar, Siddhesh Lad, Surya Yadav, Ganesh Sathish - batsmen who play back to the wall knocks for their respective teams, would they ever get picked over the heavy scorers in domestic cricket? The day we start picking a couple of players on potential, we will start to see similar results.

    ShoonyaSifar got a reaction from Clarke in Official PSL League 2020 thread   
    Pakistan now has more declared Coved-19 cases than India, is more risk prone due to a porous border with Iran and lots of movement in and out to China. Wonder why the PCB is still continuing with such a high risk strategy. Better to overreact than to wait for a crisis to set in.

    Any event that puts human lives at risk should be canceled. Glad our Govt recognises this and has initiated steps towards a gradual lockdown.
     
    I was myself a sceptic of this approach but seeing how corona has spread exponentially in Europe, fully support a complete lockdown.
