Re: Lakshya Sen

In my opinion, once you give a link, no need to copy and paste the entire article. Just state the headline. Ideally, you’d want to add your comment on why you found that news worthy of being posted here.

If Chahar is fit, I’d pick him over Bhuvi every time.

Re: India in New Zealand 2022

The great maiden over and dot ball show is on by our batters in the third ODI. I’m only watching because Rohit and Kohli aren’t playing. Else, I had decided to stop watching Indian cricket. Plus, it’s a great start time (5:30 pm PST) to watch in the USA.

Re: Interesting thing I found....

Who can tell me more about this artist and her style of music? I can, of course, search the web but someone here must be a fan and know more. Thanks in advance.

Get ready for heartbreak. The more you’re sure of gold, the less likely it will actually happen.

Re: Rohan Bopanna thread...

I’m starting to think that an Indian maybe better pairing with a non-Indian for success in tennis doubles. Sure, travel cost sharing with an Indian helps, but that’s all there seems to be the yield. I used to think the other way, but I’ve come around to change my thinking.

Re: Chess: World Team Championship 2022, Jerusalem

^^^Yet we don’t win much of anything commendable. Even in depleted fields or at home tournaments although there may not be much of a home turf advantage in chess. Not sure if that is an indictment of the rankings or a cruel irony. What’s your thinking, Arjun?

Re: New Delhi, Bhilai M15, Indore, Mumbai M25 - Oct 31-Nov 27, 2022

Jay, I think you are interpreting my comment incorrectly. Although I was being sarcastic, the main message I had was that if we can’t get even go on to win titles at home, these points, however cheap or difficult they are, don’t do much to enhance our standards overall. Nor do they give any hope tha...

Re: India in New Zealand 2022

Why is SKY playing in these matches? Wouldn’t Samson be the ideal replacement for him? Not sure why Dhawan is in the team, let alone being the captain. We just reward people for seniority. Like Ashwin playing the T20 World Cup as a reward for not playing the WTC (or something like that).

Re: Misc. news about Indian hockey

You left out the king of them all—mindless aerials. Maybe because it’s our best of the garbage? NOT!!!! We are miles behind the top 3-4 teams because of: panic in both Ds, poor shot stopping, conceding needless PCs, picking needless cards, terrible decision making all over the pitch, sloppy basic sk...

Re: Chess: World Team Championship 2022, Jerusalem

Here is a guaranteed way to avoid sadness, Saffron. As soon as you see an Indian tagged as favorite, expect they will lay an egg. You will not be sad then except just at the beginning when you accept this expectation. It will work in any sport anywhere when Indians are involved. I give you money bac...

Ok. Cheap home points have been won. The caravan will move on. I hope the clamoring, glamoring, and fetish of home tournaments will ease now. P.S. Yes, I’m in a sarcasm mode today in various threads. It’s sickening to not find even a glimmer of hope anywhere in any sport in any part of the world des...

Re: Misc. news about Indian hockey

We just play an outdated style of hockey, which is rubbish by even old standards. There cannot be a more inept team with our resources. It’s beyond shameful. Don’t know what the appropriate word is. Maybe ssp can tell us. Our deficiencies are so glaring that even us forum members can see it. Yet, th...

Re: Boxing: 2022 IBA Youth World Boxing Championships

Most youth results are bogus. I don’t buy into even an iota of their significance. Don’t want to take away the sheen from the youngsters, but they amount to nothing in the real world. I’ve never seen any reports of junior results in the USA except a few like tennis grand slam juniors, which do mean ...
