India's loss in Mumbai




Sad to see them losing 10 wickets for 100 runs on board. The last 7 wickets fell for 25 runs. We cant play the spin of Udal? We have played against Warne, Murali, Kaneria, et el. Udal is a novice when compared to the three. And we cant bat against him.

Think this way. Two of our lower order played this time on the top order. So this time the lower order was full of top order!

Champions win matches. They do not play for averages and records. India had a champion in the name of Kapil Dev.

It was an ideal opportunity for Sachin to seal the mouth of his critics, by winning this match for India in his home town. What is the difference between Saurav and Sachin after this series?. I see another Gavaskar in Sachin. It is high time Sachin quits International cricket.

I agree. Sachin is like Gavaskar. It was a golden opportunity for Sachin to prove his mantle today. The guy is getting old and rusted. Players like Sachin and Sehwag are always in the team despite their poor runs and injuries. The selectors are s**t scared to drop Sachin. Due to Sachin's likes, Agarkar is in the team.

Kapil Dev was a fighter (street fighter I should say). He was hungry to win. If he had not scored 175 against Zimbawe in 1983, India would not have made to the semis.

Dravid made a monumental blunder by winning the toss and asking England to bat. Second blunder was to persist with Sachin and Harbhajan. Both have to be dropped. Udal probaby looked better than Harbhajan on this pitch. India has to adopt a policy of three strikes or out if it has to succeed in international cricket. And to think I stayed up late to watch this match for 5 days.

The other mistake was to play with 5 specialist batsman ..actually we played with only 3 (minus out of form Sewag and Sachin):(
Too much positive thinking and experiment of Greg Chappel might not be good for Indian cricket.
Outcome of this series is definately Munaf Patel:)

1.Sachin Tendulkar could have played an innings of his life time and saved India. He did not and we expect him to punished for this. What happened yesterday (23 March 2006)?

Answer: He along with Lata Mangeshkhar were awarded a big Award from some Mumbai Organization along with fanfare in Mumbai and was shown on Zee News.

2.Everybody who watched the Mumbai test asked the question that why the hell did Dhoni play this shot, when he fully knows that India is in trouble and he needs to put his head down and play out the day. We expect him to be punished for this rash decision. What happened yesterday(23 March 2006)?

Answer: Dhoni was made the brand ambassador for Reliance Infocomm in a Dhoom Dhaam function yesterday.


This happens only in India, where we reward non-performance!
