Re: South Africa In India 2022

Why exactly are we playing Bhuvi? We know what he can give us. Try the youngsters and if they are better choose them or else go back to Bhuvi. :-(

Re: India in England, summer of 2021

Interesting. So, Rohit, Rahul, Pujara/Gill, Kohli, Iyer/Vihari, Pant, Jadeja, Thakur, Bumrah, Shami, Siraj/Umesh would be my choice. Of these, I am thinking of going with Pujara and Iyer. But, I'll be fine with Vihari. And, if Pujara's runs have been scored against weak oppositions and he does not h...

Re: BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals

Jwala says Gopichand's claims are lies . Gopichand has been the original difference-maker in Indian badminton. His academy has been pivotal. That said, exaggerating and trying to claim all credit hints at some insecurity in him. I do not know why. Is it because he does not have as much as a monopoly...

R.P. Singh and Ishant Sharma also lost pace. That has been the bane of Indian cricket. Hope Bumrah, Shami can carry on at full tilt for a few more years.

Experience. Badminton always has close games at this level. As does TT, etc. All of these guys have been in such pressure-cooker situations for several years now.

Re: French Open 2022

What is his record when he was fit at the FO? I think the odds are overwhelming that he would not have made it into the main draw even if he played a few matches. Clay is also gruelling in that the rallies are much longer. His body was perhaps not ready. I think he did the right thing.

Re: India in England, summer of 2021

I have ambivalence about Kohli’s captaincy. Every human being is flawed. He has his plusses along with his minusses. I think the plusses are more in my book. But, that is a very subjective statement and reasonable people may differ. I am worried that the intensity with which he plays is actually no...

Re: Sports and Performance Enhancing Drugs (Doping)

Hmm. So, she is not in the pool. Thanks for setting the record straight. I must say that the pool is then quire narrow and more people should be monitored. Maybe we do not have the money to do so?

Re: Yuki Bhambri

He is going into the FO just to earn money. Not that I am criticizing that. He perhaps only cares about the hard court season.
