Agarkar on karma

Ajit Agarkar tells Lokendra Pratap Sahi there is no point worrying about dew; the trick, he says, is to control what can be controlled. He has a point -- the Indian seamers have, barring an aberrant performance in the SL series when they gave just three extras in one game, been prodigal with no balls and wides and that is something that can be controlled. Consider this -- the bowlers not only gave away 18 extra runs in the Hyderabad game against South Africa, but also three extra overs. And SA won with 7 deliveries to spare.

  • so ppl whats your take on what should the side winning the toss do tomorrow ? do the dew or take the safet option and bat first ??

  • It's another example of bad press! Prem is attacking an in-form bowler because he doesn't like him.

  • Prem,

    Sometimes this kind of analysis can be very misleading... South Africans are a professional side... At this level every player, and (Kallis defines professionalism) knows how many overs they have and what the asking rate... You pace your iings accordingly.. Remmember they have 5 wickets in hand and can bat deep down... They could have finished the same much much earlier... but theres no need to do the same...

  • Agarkar's argument was about dew. Why should we use it in another context?

    By Blogger Sudip, at 12:32  

  • Th epoint is we lost becuase of Dravid's cpataincy... not using bowlers correctly...field placing, wrong judegemnet when to attack or to defend... this guy sucks...

    Down WIth drvaid and Bring Sourav.... anyways that's what gona happen... Yeaaaah..

  • True, There should be an Independent verification and validation agency who shoul stop all these nonsense...fILE NOMination at least 2 weeks before and there should be a ban against lobbying, horsetarding . This IV&V should have full powers if they come to know about any UTT's ....

    Anyways DALMIYA GONA WIN....

  • is there no way to ban the likes of tamil_telu ?

  • gk,
    Just ignore it, buddy. If someone is willing to have some sort of intelligent conversation on the issue, then fine. People will always disagree, but to constantly make nonsensical statements simply to stir up trouble... is not worth replying.

  • Tamil_telu,
    U must be dreaming if u think JD will win and Gangu will become Captain. Sharad Pawar has 19 votes and is playing all his cards close to his chest. JD has exhausted all his excuses. So SP wins and kicks out every one in JD's camp. That means SP's 1st thing would be benifit match for SG (once he quits).
