Third Test - Lesson not learnt




When will we learn to face the fast bowling. Are the players aging? Now the bowlers are having a torrid time against Warner who is playing like a 20-20 match. Hope the match does not end up in three days as the first two tests were done in four days. Indians need to stand up in the second innings.

No Yarr !
Indians can not stand up even in the second innings. They are a total waste.
It was a pathetic show at Perth.

Most perhaps, it should be India and then Pakistan who do not really have support from the public. The viewers rejoice when either team wins and let them down even if there is sign of hardship in performance.

Its not like India never played against fast bowlers in fast pitches. Even the fellow players do not support each other, perhaps it is just Sachin / Dravid / Dhoni who accommodate.

Poor team...very few overs of batting and now long haul of bowling and fielding...Good that Australia let India bat first..at least India will get two chances to bat and then don't have to bowl/field...

Pure lack of skills and mental toughness to play in local conditions !!

For foreign trips, India should reach a month before the start of series, leaving behind samosa and parathas , play atleast 5-6 games with B teams !!

Couple of reasons for the debacle, IMHO:

1) On flat subcontinent pitches, our players can smash even the stadium out of the stadium. Just watch how they will maul and tear the IPL5 bowling to pieces:D

2) If the pitches are low and fast, the very same players will be like deer stuck in the headlights.

3) To be a world class players, one needs to master playing on all pitches and on all conditions. overseas or innerseas.:)

All the same, It is important for us as cricket fans to maintain the dignity of the game by not resorting to crass behaviour like burning effigies or stoning homes.

Cheers

Rajagopal.

My honest opinion for a permanent solution for this performance problem is bring in reservation for Indian time.

If you observe every other sport than cricket has Dalits participation while the big money game does not have any Dalits.

This game is totally dominated by brahmins like sachin, srikanth , ashwin to name a few.

This game needs people with good stamina and needs people who eat high protein non-veg.

I personally who is a veg find myself low on vitamin B - 12 and need to get these shots periodically.

Involve more Dalits with the team you'll see a whole lot of difference.

Lastly force our own Bharat Ratna to retire if Not he will take another 100 games to reach his land mark.

We cannot force a nation of 1.3 billion to wait for this old man to crawl his way to records at the cost of the nations pride.

Look at Kobe Bryant of Lakers the last 3 games he is averaging 40+ points after his bitter divorce.

champions win games not create records.

Fire bharat ratna.

I accept with Vandemataram that people eating beef, pork should be given some preference in Cricket as it will increase your stamina. Just look at Lara or Viv richards,
Indians will only be good for spin bowling assuming that they will be bhramins.
Just look at the state of the 3 rd. test, second innings. 3 wickets are down already (incl. Tendulkar)
Peace

My fears may come true. It could be finished in three days unless Dravid and Kohli stand up and fight. Looks like Laxman may have played his last test of his career. Umesh Yadav bowled well and made use of the pitch. Kohli dropped an easy catch off Warner when he was around 115.
SunnyG has called for dropping older players. Hmmm....
