Just when Ganguly had started to belt the bowling, rain comes and stops the play. :damn:

India 110/3 -- Ganguly 51 off 86 balls; Dravid 33 runs off 112 balls.  Ganguly hit four boundaries in the last two overs he faced.

So now day's game called off due to torrential rain ... :(
CricInfo wrote:05:45 GMT Because of formation of puddles on the ground Umpires have deemed it fit to call off the game for the day. Play would start half an hour early tomorrow, 11:30 PM GMT that is

I won't be surprised if BCCI schedules a 20-20 game a day after the test match ends :)

They are playing just one 20-20 match (after the last test match) on February 1st.

Looks like zee sports is not broadcasting india - australia series (in US). Their answer to my email,
NO.

I like the short concise one-word answers unlike my lengthy discourses.  Give the ZEE-TV guy or gal some credit for adding "regards" in the reply.  OTOH, Zee-TV people may have read Kumar's pessimistic view of the Indo-Aussie series at Sports-India and then decided to not show the cricket matches in America.  I believe that it is Kumar's fault that Zee TV will not show the cricket matches in USA.  Had he not expressed his views about the series at Sports-India, we could have seen the matches in USA and that too for free.  :wink:

On a more serious note, thanks Kumar for trying to get ZEE TV to show the cricket matches in USA.  If more people would contact them, they would consider showing matches in the future.

Which is the correct usage?  :devil:

"NO." or "NO!" or "NO"

All three of them could be correct because they would have a slightly different meaning depending on how each of them is used in a sentence.

Some people would reply to anything in the forum simply to reach 9,999 posts.  :tomato:

I'd say a simple "No." is better. Why use CAPS ? ;)

BSharma - Reply to this post and get your 10,000th post  :devil:

how is the nervous 90's for the Doc? Only the 3rd person on this forum to reach such an exalted level (after Jay and PKB). Congratulations!! :)

Following up on the sentiments expressed in the Cricket thread, please continue posting after you reach the milestone of 10000 posts!

(you know, 10000 is just a number. you should continue posting more and more....)

cheers

No pressure on you, Doc, but I am (or, should I say, all of us are) expecting your 10,000th post to be the best of all. I am sure it will be. But, as I mentioned earlier, don't feel the pressure and keep doing what you always do - i.e. to keep us entertained :)
