    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 19:48  

  • Dont remember exactly but wasnt it known before the Aussie tour that SRT would be out because of the injury? Hopefully, this "toursit" comment was the reason why he decided to play T3 and 4

  • toney, is SS on ?
    I keep geting 401 error.

  • ctip, mine works. Hussein in the studio, same link as yesterday

    By Blogger Toney, at 20:27  

  • a lil bit of rain today morn at SCG< damn, dont want to lose any bit of time here

    By Blogger Toney, at 20:29  

  • Read the "spiking" article. If true, it shows that selectors are thinking on the same lines that many of us are thinking on this blog: give ultimatum to VS and HS on their non-performance AND give long run to RD as captain to either solidify his position with good results or make way for someone else.

    If true, it also shows that word of SRT still carries a lot of weight. On a lighter note, probably he can keep performing the clean-up act "quitely". ;-) He will have to be carefull of his own performances, though. He can't claim reservations of playing under someone if his own performances remain inconsistent.

    SS is working for me too... yesterday's URL...

    By Blogger Ruchir Joshi, at 20:30

    same id yesterday and last week for ODI and it did work a bit yesterday. today it is always 401 error.

    any suggestions??

    By Blogger Toney, at 20:41  

  • ctip, I am not sure if it was the same as last week's ODIs, seemed similar. But I had used the one they sent through the automated email yesterday.
    Also, try restarting your system. Yesterday was nt great, so dont go by that. Today seems fine

    By Blogger Toney, at 20:42

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 20:50  

  • roublen, its a good thing in a way. The WXI will look forward to the better batting conditions today

    By Blogger Toney, at 20:52  

  • yeah, I wanted to see him bat a bit;) missed most of his innings yesterday.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 20:53  

  • roublen, me too. I am sure WXI wouldnt miss him though, he climbed a bit into Vettori yesterday

    By Blogger Toney, at 20:57  

  • interesting how many bowlers are front on these days. harmison, flintoff, mcgrath, lee. . .

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:00  

  • Harmison starts up with a 9-ball over.

    By Blogger ClannZú, at 21:01  

  • holding just says that he doesn't believe in a large leap for a bowler's delivery. Starting to drizzle.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:04  

  • warne out edged flintoff

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:05  

  • good ball, fullish good length on off, warne tries to defend, edges it. maybe a bit of outswing.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:07  

  • somehow i dont agree with the whole aussies were on top at stumps on day 1.

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 21:12  

  • flintoff does it again! lee out, edged to 1st slip.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:12  

  • no, they weren't. it was about even.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:13  

  • is SS working for you guys? its buffering all the time for me.

    By Blogger Vick, at 21:14  

  • I would say the Aussies have the edge now...there is a lot of swing in these conditions...Aussies will be happy to come out and bowl.

    By Blogger Jiet, at 21:16  

  • bowled slightly wide of crease, slanting in toward the off stump, pitches outside off and seemingly headed toward the stumps, lee plays to defend the slant, a bit of outswing and lee edges it to slip.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:16  

  • exactly roublen, about even would be the exact words i would use, meanwhile flintoff sticking to basics and delivering, bad batting also i must say.

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 21:17  

  • vick, it was doing that for me earlier. seems okay now.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:17  

  • Run Out...Rahul Dravid...

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 21:18  

  • HAHA!

    Cricinfo says that Mcgrath falls lbw to flintoff!!

    By Blogger Jiet, at 21:19  

  • great throw from dravid.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:20  

  • I didn't realize initially the umpires had given the runout either.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:20  

  • guys, can you imagine, they lost their last 3 when I was away for 10 mins

    By Blogger Toney, at 21:21  

  • Gotta agree with jiet...batting is going to be tough in these conditions and the metronome bowling. If World XI is 75-1 at lunch I will be happy.

    By Blogger ClannZú, at 21:21  

  • ruchir, bob simpson says that modern batsmen aren't good at playing swing bowling. don't know if it's true. I guess it makes a diference if it's swinging at 137 or swinging at 127

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:23  

  • Lets see how VS does...keeping my fingers caused..

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 21:23  

  • oops! crossed :-)

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 21:24  

  • yeah toney, the run out in particular was so sudden I din't realize it had happened. neither did Cricinfo, apparently.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:24

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:28  

  • roublen, not watching the match?

    By Blogger Toney, at 21:28  

  • yeah, clannzu. 75/1 would be a goods start

    By Blogger Jiet, at 21:29  

  • yeah, I am, guess I still have the instincts of someone who's not watching, though;)

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:29

  • stern test for VS..

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 21:32  

  • You guys on SS, I have a few questions:
    1. What is the speed?
    2. Is it 7$ for a month as in just October or is it a month from the day I register?
    3. When is the India SL series?

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 21:37  

  • ruchi, will reply once dinner is done, my hands are not free :)

    By Blogger Toney, at 21:38  

  • month from the day you register. $7 a month, I think you have to sign up for 2 months at first. the 12 onedays are I think from oct 25 (or 23) to the last week of november.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:40  

  • thanks toney, akele akele math khaya karo, hows the rain there by the way? it's a washout here man.
    So looking forward to see VS and RD, especially because after the selection of the ODI Squad for SL it seems as though a new phase of Indian Cricket has dawned upon.

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 21:40  

  • mcgrath not looking very accurate here. maybe having trouble with the swing?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 21:40

    By Blogger Tiger, at 21:49  

  • Tiger .... That sounds cheap ... doesnt it .... Is the cricket coming live ....

    By Blogger indCric, at 21:49  

  • I am liking the use of technology.. I guess that will make it all the more interesting..

    we will find out what use technology for user with data to analyze..

    I guess it will help bowlers a bit and make it all the more attractive.. more results..

    and on the top of it SRT woont be screwed by people like buckner..
    we have data to see whether it will slow any games..

    I guess more dismissials will offset the delays..

    and countries like India will benifit because it will help our lower level of fitness levels and we will more breaks because of delays.. I am not saying we should stop working on fitness..

    In the wake of the fact, if we dont have any umpire in elite pannel, let make the technology talk so that nobody could excercise bias..

    By Blogger Thanks Chappel, at 21:53  

  • yeah indicric it's coming in live and i m a girl not a guy!

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 21:54  

  • Well...if Lee bowls short and wide Sehwag will have kill him....the line is wrong

    By Blogger Jiet, at 21:54  

  • i m going at a tangent, i know we are brown and we love math so guys check out the show numbers on cbs 2, it starts in 5 minutes, superb application of math, axo sehwag reminding us of the strokemaker that he is, good stuff here, nice timing although he should try to play on the ground and not in the air.

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 21:55  

  • why do we worry about bad lenght of Lee.. let it be. I like Sehwag when he hit boundaries..

    its good that he is macing minum menace of McGrath.. that guy is amazing.. I like this enemy.

    By Blogger Thanks Chappel, at 21:56  

  • Ruchi ...... Thanks and apologize for getting the gender wrong ... The name should have given it anyway ...

    By Blogger Thanks Chappel, at 21:56  

  • I like your apology "indcric"

    By Blogger Thanks Chappel, at 21:57  

  • I would rather that Sehwag score runs against good bowling.

    chappell...what does macing minum menace mean?

    By Blogger Jiet, at 21:59  

  • i am just kidding! i know i am among the fewest teen girls who is into cricket

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 21:59  

  • Maybe Lee shouldn't open the bowling...he is always expensive with the new ball. Not that I'm complaining...this is fun. ;)

    By Blogger Thanks Chappel, at 22:03  

  • Who are the commentators right now on ABC radio ?

    By Blogger ClannZú, at 22:03  

  • RD in...

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 22:03  

  • GS is just overrated! Michael Vaughan should have been the opener and the captain for ROW

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 22:03  

  • ruchi, MV's record in Aus is also awesome though I am not sure he is an exceptional captain. GS isnt either

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:04  

  • india vs australia. ruchi, the show looks interesting

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 22:05  

  • Clarke's look on that Sehwag cut said a lot

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:05  

  • roublen, touch wood

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:05  

  • Wohoo the men in blue, the world's most solid defense player with arguably the world's powerful striker of the ball against the world's most potent attack, treat to watch :) (I managed to get a link where the quality sucks but hey something is better than nothing).

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 22:05  

  • I think Smith is fine player...I would have picked Vaughan or Fleming as captain

    By Blogger Jiet, at 22:06  

  • DOn't think Graeme Smith is over-rated at all...averages 55 in tests and has done well against Australia. Now whether he should be captain is another debate altogether. Still I think he did pretty well on the field yesterday.

    By Blogger ClannZú, at 22:06  

  • any comments on use of technology..

    I wrote something up.. are you guys not interested on commenting it..

    By Blogger Thanks Chappel, at 22:08  

  • damn

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 22:08  

  • damn, that looked like the SRT dismissal from WC 1999 (against who else). In fact, RD was out in similar fashion in that match too

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:09  

  • Dravid goes!

    By Blogger Jiet, at 22:09  

  • captain scores a hundred :)

    By Blogger Vick, at 22:09  

  • look at cricinfo.. MacPigeon strikes..

    Lara wont make many.. nor would Inzi.. its all on Sehwag

    By Blogger Thanks Chappel, at 22:11  

  • time to relieve dravid of the burdens of captaincy;)

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 22:11  

  • now, the knives will be sharpened. RD burdened by captaincy LOL

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:12  

  • Look at Lara shuffling...

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:12  

  • vick.. Dont start yet. Its not even an Indian Match.. distractions are there.. Night calls.. stuff.. and new son.

    By Blogger Thanks Chappel, at 22:12  

  • its still indie-a vs australia

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 22:12  

  • I think Inzi will come good.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 22:13  

  • Inzi doesnt like Aussie test grounds

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:14  

  • Lara always shuffles...but incredibly for all his movement and high back-lift he gets behind the ball and is able to place the ball to all parts of the ground.

    By Blogger ClannZú, at 22:14  

  • Dravid is INCONSISTENT....bring back the more RESPONSIBLE Ganguly... ;)

    By Blogger Jiet, at 22:14  

  • why is shuffling a bad thing?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 22:15  

  • The last time Lara toured Aussie land, McG got him caught at point, bowling round the wkt. Lara seemed obstinate to want to slash at deliveries and McG had a good time. Wonder if the same will happen here.

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:15  

  • The shuffle is part of Lara's flourish, awesome to watch

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:16  

  • thanks chappel - technology is always good, when you have it, why not use it! and yes no more personal battles!

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 22:16  

  • I bet Sehwag and Lara are discussing the pros and cons of a shuffle

    By Blogger Jiet, at 22:16  

  • roublen with the swing movement due to the overcast conditions makes lara vulnerable to lbws.

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 22:17  

  • roublen, understood why a shuffle isnt that great?

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:18  

  • Poor Dravid....tough days are just beginning for him...Hope he pulls through..

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 22:18  

  • Why shouldnt it be started chappel? And why offer excuses like distraction? How many have captain scored in all his innings in Aussie land?

    By Blogger Vick, at 22:18  

  • Yeah...I remember my coach telling me that balance and a still head it "paramount" when I made contact with the ball. But Lara is just a genius

    By Blogger Jiet, at 22:18  

  • so that's why shuffling is a bad thing;)

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 22:20  

  • Fuck..Lara gone !!!

    By Blogger ClannZú, at 22:20  

  • deserved to be bowled around the legs for that kind of a shuffle. Not the ideal preparations for a WI tour coming up. Noy, that'll be interesting, with some really good players in Samuels, Sarwan, Lara to face McG

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:21  

  • Any bets on what Aaloo will score?

    By Blogger Toney, at 22:21

  • One of the commentators had an interesting iobservation about sehwag. He said Sehwag does well in tests because there are more fielders in close catching position allowing him to hit boundaries in the air. In ODIs that is not the case therefore he does not do as well. Interesting.

  • indian:

    You're welcome.

  • I don't think so. Sehwag opens in ODI and has the benefit of field restriction. It look like he plays fast bowlers well. He has a trouble bating agints good swing bowlers who can move the ball.

  • ashvin, could be right. He's an opener, so the fielders are still in the circle, but maybe they're on the outer parts of the circle , unlike in tests.

  • Not right Ashvin. There are only 2 fielders outside the circle when Veeru plays. He hardly gets out caight in ODI these days. It has to do more with defensive bowling and his insistence on playing too many shots. In tests he dont try to play shots on every ball. And that controlled aggression works.

  • My theory is that Sehwag does not like to rotate strike in ODIs...in Tests there is no pressure to rotate strike.

  • Would lara be admirable of the technology usage in the game specially in LBW ?
    Shuffling mostly used to be advantageous for batsman to avoind Plumbs . may not be any more ...

  • will World X1 reach 200? I doubt it very much; can't ask Flintoff to do everything everytime!

  • It will be interesting for someone to analyze sehwag's dismissals in ODIs tho. From what I have been told and remember, he rarely gets out playing a defensive stroke.

    By Blogger Ashvin Iyengar, at 23:10  

  • in fact ashvin, he got out fedning a short pitched delivery from Lee in the first ODI against the Aussies

    By Blogger Jiet, at 23:11  

  • Also during IND-AUS series ,Ausses had their detailed study about Sehwag shots, They won't leave any field placing or bowling spot go futile if they are aware of it.
    So let us give this guy some credit when he deserves.

  • back on air, and lara haha i don't know guys he just isn't the same class as tendulkar

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 23:12  

  • guys any idea how much these row and aussie players get paid for these games?

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 23:13  

  • Ruchi,
    I think he is just out of touch ..
    Playing great players watch is a different site ot behold.
    I wont get to player to player comparison.
    Different players have different strengths

    By Blogger Pankaj Tripathi, at 23:14  

  • ruchi: wonder who pays for all the player clothing...

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 23:15  

  • even if it increases LBW's it's still a good technology. earlier batters had uncovered pitches, no bowling machines to practice on, etc. these batters can handle harsher LBW's.

    BTW. Sehwag's strike rate in tests is better than Bradman's. Sehwag's is 73. Badman's was like 60-65. interesting.

  • Lara has not played in 6 months... Dravid played like a tailender and nicked one needlessly.

  • sanjay manjrekar should be banned from commentary, what the hell is "with the advent of technology we wont see the sight of the players celebrating after getting the umpire's nod for a lbw decision"

    By Blogger Ruchi Shah, at 23:16  

  • so what part of the world are you guys from?
