Re: Do the sports bodies in India have a vision?

yes they do have a vision. its called cricket.
999 million indians share the same view. and who really cares or follows the abhinavs and the vijenders outside of the olympics. seriously noone has the time. i say chuck all these medals and get home the cricket world cup.

Re: General Cricket Thread ...

if a batsman changes his stance in the middle of a delivery then wides should be judged at the far end markers on both sides.
that will curb the batsmen from playing these fancy shots.

Re: General Cricket Thread ...

1. They should allow bowlers to change their bowling hand from right to left or vice-versa then for fairness.   I think that will make the game even more flashy and intriguing. 2. There is the question of what is the leg-side and what is the off-side.  I think the stance of the batsman right before...

Re: French Open 2008

err its been two days since rafa created history yet you guys continue to harp about lavendar peas and his non-exploits. in telugu there is a saying
'nutilo unna mandukaniki nuyye prapancham' meaning a toad living in a well thinks the well is the universe. time to jump out of the well folks.

Re: Sania Mirza - General Discussion of tennis matters

yes yes i fully support our little princess's decision to bail out in round 0. she should save her ailing elbow or ankle or hip or whatever it that is causing her immense discomfort for more important matches - cheerleading for the equally inept "Deccan Chargers" aka DC. I mean geez what an idiot ra...

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

I agree that the pitches should not be purely to enable batsmen to score runs.  It is bad enough that this instant-gratification version of cricket has taken the subtleties out of the game (heck, why not play Ten10?) if the pitch has nothing for the bowlers, you might as well just install ball mach...

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

are you guys really as naive as you make out to be? they brought in the boundaries by at least a few meters for this circus. mohali had huge swathes of green outside the boundaries and most of the sixes hit in the first two games would be comfortably held in the deep. 30+ sixes in two games tells th...

What's bothering you, naballa?  Grammar not up to snuff?  It is the age of SMS, my friend.  Anything goes in the name of "English."  :D BTW, your comment about protein at first appeared ridiculous in the context of a wrist injury.  But I think you make a valid point because good nutrition and total...
