India-RSA, Game 4, Thread 3

Here you go, per request


  • kaif gone

    By Blogger JD, at 06:49  

  • new thread does the trick for RSA :(

    By Blogger Sahir, at 06:50  

  • i think we will still get to 250.

    By Blogger JD, at 06:50  

  • jd; lot of reliance on Agarkar?

    By Blogger Sahir, at 06:51  

  • if either HS or AA gives support to Dhoni. Dhoni can't play freely now

    By Blogger squarecut, at 06:51  

  • idli must be doing Kathak now

    By Blogger suraj, at 06:51  

  • nope on Dhoni and HS...

    By Blogger JD, at 06:52  

  • sahir: losingnowindia at yahoo dot com

    By Blogger losing now, at 06:52  

  • pull shot banned for Kaif!!

    By Blogger suraj, at 06:52  

  • tough now i think if our 7 batsmen can add just 167 runs in abt 40 overs are we not expecting too much from the last3-4 to add 80 in 10? I think 230 is more realistic

    By Blogger Avinash, at 06:52  


    By Blogger GK, at 06:52  

  • gotta feel for Kaif...there was no reason not to play that shot and Greame Smith is probably the only guy who would have reached that so easily

    By Blogger Jiet, at 06:53  

  • i really hope some one takes nel apart .. dhoni .. plss plss plss ..

    By Blogger Confused Indian Cricket Fan, at 06:53  

  • I second that gk

    By Blogger suraj, at 06:53  

  • gk: there goes you pull shot for Kaif :-))...but you're absolutely right...he's never played that well...always in the air and always short of boundary

    By Blogger worma, at 06:53  

  • Prem - what is a competitive total here?

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 06:53  

  • two threads and confusion...

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 06:54  

  • less than 250 looks curtains... the way Kaif & Yuvraj batted, the pitch looks good for batting.

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 06:54  

  • bad batting by India

    By Blogger suraj, at 06:54  

  • and kaif has got a strange way of pulling .. doesnt get his body behind the line at all ..

    By Blogger Confused Indian Cricket Fan, at 06:54  

  • ok! cool no more confusion.......only 1 thread now.

    By Blogger rahul_fan, at 06:55  

  • and he don't generate enough power

    By Blogger squarecut, at 06:55  

  • they need another 90 in the remaining 9.4 overs..

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 06:55  

  • 230 seems more likely and even for that we will need some luck...

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 06:55  

  • Well...if Ganguly has the license to pull...

    By Blogger Jiet, at 06:55  

  • we must make sure we bat the full 50 overs and give ourselves a chance i wud expecct these to score in singles and two until 47 overs at a rate of 6-6.5 per over. that would e abt 45 runs we would be at 215. the go for thee kill in last 3

    By Blogger Avinash, at 06:55  

  • agarkar not scoring a 0 is an encouraging sign to say the least.

    By Blogger GK, at 06:55  

  • f*** Dhoni left with too little support

    By Blogger squarecut, at 06:55  

  • still a chance to get 240

    By Blogger inside_story, at 06:55  

  • when Dhoni's in the middle

    why lofted shot by Kaif???

    By Blogger suraj, at 06:55  

  • Worma: short of my 40 over target by 7 runs and 2 wickets.
    Revising to 210 in 45 and 250-260 in 50..if these 2 stay or Bhajji does the Bhangra again

    By Blogger losing now, at 06:56  

  • smith looking to wrap it up herre Aa and MSD need to be sensible, best 2 quicks on after pollock

    By Blogger Avinash, at 06:56  

  • oh for crying out loud. He did not get height on it...that's all

    By Blogger Jiet, at 06:56  

  • i think 230 would be reasonable target to achieve with last 3

    By Blogger squarecut, at 06:56  

  • Suraj - because both batsmen need to go for it at this stage.

    By Blogger inside_story, at 06:56  

  • with yuvi gone one would have expected kaif to stay till the end

    By Blogger Schumi, at 06:57  

  • only target shd be batting 50 overs for moral support and get whtever runs they can get

    By Blogger suraj, at 06:57  

  • aggie 4

    By Blogger squarecut, at 06:57  

  • I think the docking of overs becuae oif slow over rate is no longer done after the 2003 world cup.

    The captain will be punished for slow over rate. i think that has been the new rule.

    By Blogger rahul_fan, at 06:57  

  • losing..230 is the min they should get...even with relatively safe play

    By Blogger worma, at 06:57  

  • jiet: Kaif has *never* got enough height or distance on his pull...always short....sometimes in no-man's land...sometimes straight to fielder. And this is not an exxageration

    By Blogger worma, at 06:58  

  • I wonder if MK is talking to SG much. He can learn how to play a pull shot to perfection ... If not, at least he can read this blog :)

    By Blogger dapolice, at 06:58  

  • HS should've come in place of AA

    By Blogger inside_story, at 06:58  

  • 9 overs to go - nel and lang have 2 each of them if we can score say 15 of these 4 w/o a wicket we can make a dash off the others

    By Blogger GK, at 06:59  

  • Worma...Nat West final

    By Blogger Jiet, at 06:59  

  • when will Dhoni open up

    By Blogger squarecut, at 06:59  

  • nel has only one over left and langveldt 3 more...if dhoni is still around after that...he might be able to hit some bonus runs

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 06:59  

  • preem don't u think smith is gambling here,assuming theese twwo finish off here hall and kallis will bowl in the last 5

    By Blogger Avinash, at 07:00  

  • worma, I think Kaif scored couple of sixes with pulls in Natwest final

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:00  

  • jiet: as I said..sometimes his pull avoids going to a fielder...but its never a good pull...always short and always chancy

    By Blogger worma, at 07:00  

  • i guess dhoni will go for his shots after the 45 overs ..

    By Blogger Confused Indian Cricket Fan, at 07:00  

  • Worma...Kaif pulled for six at least once in the NAt West final....and I am sure that between us we have not seen all of his sixes

    By Blogger Jiet, at 07:01  

  • see dhoni cant time it today !! not the easiest pitch i tell u

    By Blogger GK, at 07:02  

  • squarcut...did he?..umm...ok...maybe after that ;-)

    By Blogger worma, at 07:02  

  • I think smith did the right thing here by tightening the screws instead of giving the momentume to India

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:03  

  • and even against Pak in Pak he scored few fours with pulls that we won

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:03  

  • worma: 250 not possible now. 176-7 in 42. best they can do is 7rpo..235! Not a winning total, imho

    By Blogger losing now, at 07:03  

  • jiet, squarecut
    i remember those sixes but they are more or less an exception

    By Blogger GK, at 07:03  

  • If Dhoni waits for 45 overs to go for his shots, he may not be there. The only way to win is by playing agressive from the word 'go'. Go Dhoni Go

    By Blogger inside_story, at 07:03  

  • hay una muchacha bonita en la pena

    By Blogger Jiet, at 07:04  

  • with the pressure building up he has a better chance of picking up wickets in the last few over. We can only hope that this move will backfire on him

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:04  

  • Worma, sq. cut, jiet...I remember Kaif's six(es) in Natwest final too..

    what the score now

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 07:04  

  • ppl are still talking abt totals. since when did a team that loses its top 4 in 10 overs and top 5 in 17 start thinking abt totals before deciding to bat out the overs ???

    By Blogger GK, at 07:05  

  • gk...
    Still don't agree he should not play the pull shot. He does need to work on it, I agree

    By Blogger Jiet, at 07:05  

  • squarecut: fours I can understand..as I said..his pulls are chancy..almost all that I've seen (didn't see Natwest btw, one of the regrets ;-)..

    By Blogger worma, at 07:05  

  • losing now,
    I sent you an e-mail

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:05  

  • 183/7 in 43 overs

    By Blogger JD, at 07:06  

  • we are ready for the big blast

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:06  

  • losing: lets check at 45 oer mark..if these two are still around then 250 possible

    By Blogger worma, at 07:06  

  • sahir: thanks .. have not got it yet! refreshed it twice. will wait and respond

    By Blogger losing now, at 07:06  

  • this string of comments about kaif's pull is pretty funny. by that token sehwag should cut all his shots because he gets out to all of them... :)

    By Blogger JK, at 07:06  

  • Worma...are you surprised that Raina has not seen a game yet?

    By Blogger Jiet, at 07:07  

  • jk: or that can also means he has no 'specific' weakness?

    By Blogger worma, at 07:07  

  • jk, % succes off Kaifs pull shots is less compared to Sehwags shots

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:07  

  • how much was the dhoni kaif partnership worth ?

    By Blogger GK, at 07:08  

  • is this a batting beauty as someone said; I don't think the ball is coming onto the bat - has been tough to make shots. or just Dhoni struggling..

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 07:08  

  • guys
    for those who dont have a video feed, here's a low quality video of the game


    By Blogger JD, at 07:08  

  • Suckers...........4 Dots in a ROW

    By Blogger rahul_fan, at 07:08  

  • 4 . balls!

    By Blogger losing now, at 07:08  

  • Prem's comment on over 31-40 said that SA might be behind the over rate. Hope we get 250 and they get only 47 to chase

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:09  

  • Is the bowling that good that Dhoni can't score at all or he is playing predetermined ininngs

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:09  

  • btw while dissecting kaifs dismissal let us not forget to acknowledge a very good inns by him

    By Blogger GK, at 07:09  

  • back of length incutters cramping dhoni.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 07:09  

  • they have managed to shut Dhoni down... how they manage that... aggy is doing better !

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 07:09  

  • rahul..frustrating. I dont think we will be anywhere near 230, will need a lot of luck...250 seems out of question. Will be happy to eat my words though

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 07:10  

  • SA shud be docked overs for the slow bowling rate .. considering tat there might be more dew in the II innings .. if it starts late ..

    By Blogger Confused Indian Cricket Fan, at 07:10  

  • good bowling and dhoni seems to be tad bit out of it...not timing the ball as well as we know he can.

    By Blogger JK, at 07:10  

  • with the singles drying out 250 is becoming increasingly difficult

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:10  

  • I dont think there is a rule to dock the overs anymore

    By Blogger Thanks Chappel, at 07:11  

  • schumi
    gone are those good old days of overs being reduced

    By Blogger GK, at 07:11  

  • What SA is doing is called the "choke" fellas...India is being "choked to submission".....Bloody Top Order screw-up from the likes of SRT

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 07:12  

  • the tradition of docking overs is longer present. The captain is usually handed a ban for 2 or 3 games if he continues the slow over rate for more matches

    By Blogger rahul_fan, at 07:12  

  • TC: there is .. though it is not the only option as it used to be .. ne more ..

    By Blogger Confused Indian Cricket Fan, at 07:12  

  • Bowled!

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:12  

  • schumi
    forget 250

    By Blogger GK, at 07:13  

  • i would say 210 at most

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:13  

  • AA gone.

    By Blogger JD, at 07:13  

  • it will be a miracle if we get to 200.

    By Blogger JK, at 07:13  

  • Bombay duck gone

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:13  

  • Dot...Dot...balls killing AA and MSD....well, what can they do when famed folks like SRT cannot do it when it "matters".
    As I say, AA is BOWLED!!! OUT!

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 07:13  

  • gk, has there been a rule change to that effect. I was not aware of this

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:13  

  • Bhajji in-- anything possible now

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:14  

  • Bajji to get a 25 here today?

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 07:14  

  • baddd shot selection by agarkar ..

    By Blogger Confused Indian Cricket Fan, at 07:14  

  • Smith's gamble to tighten the screws paid off very well.

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:14  

  • don't count on bhajji to fire everytime

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:14  

  • how many overs to go?

    By Blogger travesty, at 07:14  

  • sad end to Aggy's stay in the middle. what will Bhajji do...

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 07:14  

  • Wow, Bhajji presents a defensive bat

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:15  

  • Guys, how many of you are still going to say, "SRT is different from others...He will realize himself that he needs to score. No one needs to tell SRT anything. He is a great mind who will contemplate everything himself. He will "sort" stuff out etc etc"
    How many are still going to say this?
    SHUCKS! Can't believe the trust that we will keep lingering on SRT.

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 07:15  

  • Kallis is killing india

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 07:15  

  • 187/8 5 overs left

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:15  

  • Hey guys just tuned in, was reading cricinfo, is the wicket that green, says"extremely challenging" on cricinfo, or just done in by some bad shots and good bowling?

    By Blogger sherine, at 07:15  

  • I think now there is no point in hanging on. 200 all out ok, in trying to get to 250 than hanging around for 210 or 215

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:15  

  • last 2 overs 4 runs... too bad

    By Blogger JD, at 07:15  

  • I thi nk 210 now .. and that will never be enough!

    By Blogger BTB, at 07:16  

  • now we will see dhoni going to hit out...and probably get out.

    By Blogger JK, at 07:16  

  • Worma: SA pulling back in the 35-45 overs. These 10 overs will define the game for me...if 250 was a competitive total. We were 151 at 35, 173 at 40 and 187 at 45! 33 runs in last 10 overs. Killed us

    By Blogger losing now, at 07:16  

  • Harbhajan is a lottery, you cant win all the time

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 07:16  

  • Dhoni goes - sorry end!

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 07:16  

  • sherine,
    there has been plenty of assistance for the seamers in this wicket, especially early. DHONI GONE

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:16  

  • ppl
    may i make a suggestion that we not open the bowling with pathan ? becoz when defending small totals he really is not very good. tends to get hit around early

    By Blogger GK, at 07:16  

  • dhoni out.

    By Blogger JK, at 07:16  

  • dhoni gone

    By Blogger JD, at 07:16  

  • Sucker! out

    By Blogger rahul_fan, at 07:17  

  • and Dhoni gone!

    By Blogger BTB, at 07:17  

  • sherine,
    Mixture...wicket certainly green that JD wanted to screw RD/GC. But, beyond that excuse, the batting was poor (and we will not be able to bat in SA/Aus/NZ if we play like this on these types of wickets).
    DHONI !!! OUT!!!

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 07:17  

  • Relaax folks, teams batting second never had it easy under lights in Eden. In fact teams batting first have won, I think 70% times.

    By Blogger SS, at 07:17  

  • forget about 200 then

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:17  

  • it is a tough pitch guys.. I think 190 is a decent score. SA might require more than 40 overs to get there :)

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 07:17  

  • 195 all out

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 07:17  

  • sahir: replied back. Thanks

    By Blogger losing now, at 07:17  

  • can dhoni really deliver at a big stage??

    By Blogger arjunah, at 07:17  

  • Can India get 200?

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:18  

  • Guys, how many of you are still going to say, "SRT is different from others...He will realize himself that he needs to score. No one needs to tell SRT anything. He is a great mind who will contemplate everything himself. He will "sort" stuff out etc etc"
    How many are still going to say this?
    SHUCKS! Can't believe the trust that we will keep lingering on SRT.

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 07:18  

  • haha ... this is what we get when go for targets and not play out 50 overs

    By Blogger GK, at 07:18  

  • ss, for us to win we need a decent score .do u think 200 is enough to win this one?

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:18  

  • Thanks GU, my coffee does not seem that good this morning, was expecting to see a 300+ score from the boys, damn! but i am eternal optimist!!!! maybe the bowlers will carve up something!

    By Blogger sherine, at 07:18  

  • The battle is open in the public - SG just his place in the playing X1. Can't mess with GC.

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 07:18  

  • ...may be today we should have played Sehwag down the order...

    By Blogger SS, at 07:19  

  • I would give credit to smith's captaincy here. Made the right moves by bringing pollock on for a couple of tight overs. Never took the foot of the pedal

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:19  

  • 187 all out

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:19  

  • 188 all out!

    By Blogger losing now, at 07:19  

  • oh man... what a shocker all out in 45!

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 07:19  

  • 188!

    By Blogger BTB, at 07:20  

  • arjunah, dhoni delivered at big stage like chasing 300+ runs against SL

    By Blogger JD, at 07:20  

  • sehwag was looking good before that poor shot

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:20  

  • all over....188 all out

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 07:20  

  • correction, 188 all out

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:20  

  • i dont think our bowlers are good enough to restrict them under 188.

    By Blogger JD, at 07:20  

  • no fighback here ha crap

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:20  

  • ss we did

    By Blogger BTB, at 07:21  

  • what a difference playing vs SL and SA

    By Blogger JD, at 07:21  

  • squarecut..I would say the first 10 overs of SA will define their chances. SA are known as big chokers and if we can seal them off in the first 10, that will be a big mental win. From there on...we have plenty of bowlers in reserve and fielding to back it up. So I would say let us not give up yet. but yes, this is a bad batting performance where everyone has failed( except Yuvi/Kaif)

    By Blogger SS, at 07:21  

  • i think this is a 225 -250 pitch not 180 one

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:21  

  • despite a poor total, I still feel India has a chance considering the lack of specialist batsmen for RSA-- plenty of allrounders, but not many specialists

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:21  

  • Looking at how INZY scores 2 hundreds in 2 innings in the same test, and how LARA puts 202 not out, I feel so sick (really sick, cant even get over it) when I think how often SRT fails, fails and fails in CLUTCH, IMPORTANT or MUST-WIN matches....sick sick sick. WHERE IS THE SRT of yesteryears????WHere is my HERO??? IS he dead? Cant believe he is dead???
    Oh Boy!

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 07:22  

  • hey look on the bright side guys, chasing low totals at times can be really interesting for the side batting second!, also anyone know any audio/video commentary site?free of course!

    By Blogger sherine, at 07:22  

  • 167 for 6 in 39 overs to 187 all out says a lot. Kaif, had to do better rather than just bailing us out for a while, only to let us down

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:23  

  • btb...I meant a little more lower. I guess in the last match he came lower than this...or I am forgetting something.

    By Blogger SS, at 07:23  

  • ss, our bowling is not good enough to defend 190. this team is good enough to weather out any problems in the chase.

    it is just your wishful thinking

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:23  

  • squarecut: yeah 188 is a bit short...but if there is enough swing then IP and AA are capable of doing plenty of damage. How much are they charged up is another matter

    By Blogger worma, at 07:23  

  • Forget SRT and look ahead guys....

    By Blogger JD, at 07:24  

  • jd, buddy the real big stage is in trying conditions like this, against a much bigger opponent and when most of the top order has failed. the sl innings was very very good but getting india to 250 or more today would have proved consistency and better than the chase. without that it was what we expect from the so called rising indian team: just another lemon tree. need to see how they play under pressure later

    By Blogger arjunah, at 07:24  

  • ..and I guess we have Muarli as SS. That should be of help now.

    By Blogger SS, at 07:24  

  • Wonder what Prem thinks.. it looks like a tough pitch to score and 188 could be competitive (of course, if the bowling is good)

    By Blogger Yacrik, at 07:24  

  • not to forget the eden gardens i.e. a big stage

    By Blogger arjunah, at 07:24  

  • worma, even if SA looses couple of wickets upfront couple of meaty blows by
    Kemp will settle it. First does the team
    beleives that they can win it:-)

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:24  



  • worma...what does our great verbal tap Navjot Siddhu say? Something like if ifs and buts were pots and pans...

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 07:25  

  • Pains me to say it, but SRT does not currently have a place in the ODI side

    My batting lineup for next game:
    MSD (promote him to 3 and bring Kaif down if pitch is flat)

    By Blogger Sahir, at 07:25  

  • @gu,
    I think SRT needs a break and we too. His place is always there in the team, but what's wrong in dropping in odd games and trying us out. after all we have played without him for months...isn't it?

    By Blogger SS, at 07:26  

  • I think SA will go all out in the power play overs. If they get to 100 in the first 20, the match is over for us. In any case, our field set up has to be power play mode throughout the game. Cant see us winning by restricting the run rate. Better to start with 3 slips and 2 gully.

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:26  

  • arjunah- what much bigger opponent? havent we beat them in last match, after they have one 21 matches consecutively...

    By Blogger JD, at 07:26  

  • I think Yuvi has done well to earn the No. 4 spot. RD has to give way to him. It will help him too.

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:26  

  • Are u guys serious?
    Ur saying if we get these wickets here, and if IP does this, AA does that, and HarBhaj does XYZ, then we have 80% chance or whatever....
    GUYS, GUYS this is 189 to win...even from 57-4, SA will do this in dew, and Justin Kemp.
    Lets SEE if we can make it 2-2 at MUMBAI....Thats it and out folks....what are you wasting ur time on? Seriously, 189 is a GONER.

  • also what do u expect from a tailender? I mean as far as batting position was considered, DHoni was a tailender today,

  • hope we will turn it around. After seeing so many of these type of matches
    pessimist in me says it tough

  • gu, this is team india. there is one rule for srt and another for rest of the world. we asked for it and we got it. why complain now. unless he decides to retire no one can stop him till he is ......well may be 40!! and once in a while he will mesmerize and will be great to look at. forget match winning blah, blah and blah

  • It was a whitewash when RSA visited SL. 5-0

  • well if the Gods of indian cricket can not do anything, what do u expect from new comers.

    By Blogger JD, at 07:29  

  • what is tailending got to do anything with it? all the lower order had a chance when team really needed it. tail between the legs buddy.

  • glorious, in the past there have been instances where relatively small targets have not been achieved. The reason I guess, is that the chasing team starts with the approach "we dont have to do anything silly, just play the overs". Once they get into that mindset, they stop playing strokes and fall into into the trap they set themselves. Atleast, thats my wish.

  • ...look if Botha and Kallis can have economy rates of 4, then wonder what Bajji/Murali/SRT/VS will have. If only IP/AA can keep the first 10 oers under fold. Everyhitng said, this SA team does not have Dippenear/Gibbs ...they are the real spine of their batting. Kemp can always have an odd day off.

  • squarecut: couple of wkts is not enough, not against this deep-batting lineup of SA.

    reverse: yeah but Siddhu irritating the heck out of us doesnt mean we can't use an 'if' :-)

  • Deeply pains me...Just for the heck of it, I'll do a cut-and-paste again(I apologize folks, will not do cut and paste after this...but this makes me less sick...since I dont know how to get it out...I don't drink beer:(

    Looking at how INZY scores 2 hundreds in 2 innings in the same test, and how LARA puts 202 not out, I feel so sick (really sick, cant even get over it) when I think how often SRT fails, fails and fails in CLUTCH, IMPORTANT or MUST-WIN matches....sick sick sick. WHERE IS THE SRT of yesteryears????WHere is my HERO??? IS he dead? Cant believe he is dead???
    Oh Boy!

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 07:30  

  • maybe we shd play SRT in every 10 or so innings

    By Blogger JD, at 07:30  

  • f*** we can't handle the pace even on indian wickets that is really bothersome

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:30  



  • for SRT even bringing him down the order didnt help....like it helped for Sehwag in last match,

    By Blogger JD, at 07:32  

  • the only way is OUT for him (i mean from the team)

    By Blogger JD, at 07:32  

  • what would GC come out now regarding SRT 's failure

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:33  

  • squarecut,
    You are ABSOLUTELY right! It is appalling that we cannot play decent pace on a little fast-paced wicket on our own backyard!!!!
    What is Ind going to do in SA, Aus, NZ or England for that matter (or even WC07 in WI). Answer: Lose

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 07:33  

  • gu: why so glum, mate. When SRT was making that 93 in Nagpur, Lara was getting out in single digits in the Aus practise matches. Happens, dude.

  • I think the grass was green in our minds today (more so with RD). Looking at how Yuvi and Kaif batted, we ought to have reached 250.

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:33  

  • @gay,..
    A few days back you guys were shouting that Ganguly have too many women..now you are saying he is gay!!! Make up your mind man!!:-)

    By Blogger SS, at 07:34  

  • lets not jump on the anti-SRT bandwagon yet.

    I am sure he will come out of it with flying colors. Or elese he is decent enough to drop himself.


  • worma : The only problem is that its happening too often for SRT and though many of us may not agree, it does affect the team morale a bit, more so with RD too being out of touch

    By Blogger Schumi, at 07:35  

  • I think SRT and RD are responsibe for this debacle. Being kingpins of the batting thehy can't afford to fail.

    VVSL would definitely do well atleast in
    one out of three matches

    By Blogger squarecut, at 07:35  

  • worma, how many more matches SRT needs to get back to his form:-)
