Most people here doesn't bother our post if any cricket topics are going on.
You can't blame cricket for that because that happens even when no cricket discussion is going on. also I see only few guys post in cricket related thread. There was an issue during the WC last year when any post was soon getting disappeared from the main page because lots of cricket post was being posted. That is not the case now as we hardly see any posts here.
A good slap on Dhoni's face for crying and asking for spinning track post 1st
test match. :->
He asked for bounce. The first pitch and this pitch both take turn, just that this pitch also had very good bounce. So what he asked for was right, just that their spinners were better bowlers and our batsmen sucked.
If we go talent wise, if SRT is in form, he can outplay KP (well just sayin')
2 years back, maybe. Today, no way! He's in fairly good form and timing the ball, just that at nearly 40 his reflexes are not quick enough. He scored a 100 in the Ranji game a few weeks ago. But against Test quality bowlers, it's unlikely that he'd get a 100 again unless it's a really flat surface.
All out in 44.1 overs
Even though most of the players scored less than 10(decimal ) I noticed that most of them did hit the boundary. Only Dhoni, Ashwin and Zaheer didn't hit a single boundary.
Ashwin atleast has a 2 digit score.
I don't read CP articles nowadays, as I just don't get the time to do that. Specially if it's stuff like WPF that's now semi-obsolete (although we use it at work). If I get a chance to go through your article I will share my comments. The topic sounds interesting.
I would disagree with you on that comment. India are in a period of transition but I still see them in a top 4 with Aus/SA/Eng. Also let's not forget this series isn't over yet and India can still come away with a 3-1 win.
