Re: New Zealand in India, 2021 (3 T20Is, 2 Tests)

These home umpires are being diabolical and will help us cheat to a win here.

I don't mind dishing that to the Poms or the Aussies but the Kiwis deserve better.

Re: T20I World Cup 2021

Abomination of a WC finally over.

Dishonest commentators have refused to ack how stupid the conditions have been.

The only positive from this would be if we got rid of Kohli the ODI captain.

Re: Aditi Ashok

^^ $45,746 Congrats Aditi I think the commentators' point at the Olympics was that she had lost 15 yards with Covid. That would have taken her from amongst the worst to around the 25th percentile in length. Her length hasn't gone up with age and while that was fine at 18, it is not good enough at 23.

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

When I was in India in early Sep, people were still reasonably afraid of Covid.

Has that changed now?

Re: Tokyo Olympics 2020

Agree with mugu and prasen.

Indian sports journalism needs to get its head out of the gutter and understand you can't compare local PBs for Indian athletes but use Olympic numbers for everyone else.

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

So, channeling PKB here, the women's final is between 19-year old Canadian Leylah Fernandez who is half-Ecuadorean, half-Filipino and 18-year old British qualifier Emma Raducanu who is playing her 4th tour event and is also Canadian-born and is half-Romanian, half-Chinese. We are now seeing an explo...

Re: India in England, summer of 2021

We will likely lose 10 overs due to bad light tonight and again tomorrow so number of overs left are less than the budgeted 131 at tea.

Re: India in England, summer of 2021

And Kohli gone.

Looked tentative all morning and edged 3 times with the ball falling just before the slip fielder.

This middle order is so bad. England favourites to win now.

Re: India in England, summer of 2021

So either we should make him a captain or drop him!!! I would rather make Rohit the captain and drop Rahane. With this duck, he is now behind Ganguly as the worst middle order batsman in Indian test history to have played so much. Based on what we have seen, in terms of captaincy, Rohit >>> Rahane ...

Re: India in England, summer of 2021

That list is for positions 3-6 and excludes openers.



Filtering for 5-6 is a much smaller list. Rahane is the same as Ganguly, who was in the team as the captain, and 7-10 runs lesser than VVS and Azhar.

Agree with this.

Why should we continue in this colonial farce, where they continue with anti-India policies.
