If Tendulkar is God, Ganguly is not bad either
by vivek marwaha on Nov 26, 2005 01:20 PM

I am big fan of Saurav Ganguly because in my point of view He has developed this team, its his team rather than Dravids or Chappells. He groomed the youngsters like yuvraj, kaif, Pathan, Harbhajan to name just a few though the list is long. Its a well known fact that Harbhajan feels confident under Saurav. Rahul Dravid is a very good player but he was not a certainty in One day cricket not long ago. It was Gangulys move to try him as a keeper, a move which gave Rahul all the confidence to play regularly in ODIs. Now Rahul has forgotten all that and is acting like a toy in Chappells hands. It was shocking to see in the newspaper that he voted against Saurav in Selection Committee meeting. Gangulys record in ODIs is very good amongst the best. His ODI average is 41.08 excluding countries marked by * in red.

indian team
by hari on Apr 18, 2005 02:16 PM

we won the test series and odi in pak ground that does'nt means that we have to loose here in India. even though they loose the test series and ODI they fighted very well but luck was not there to pak.

wining two games and loosing four games is very much shame to indian teams I think indian cricketers are fit to make money in advertisement. they dont bother for the nation they will play for individual. even after loosing so many games they will not learn anything. I think indian team should banned for few years then i think they will learn after that.we are not saying that to win all they game afterall it is agame every time u cannot be the winner atleast give the fight to opposition team so that they will come to know what is indian team. hopeless performance by indian. god should save the indian team.

food for thought
by venu on Apr 18, 2005 12:51 AM


probably, it's the right time for BCCI to try out innovative things or even try out to gamble with the whole combination of the present ODI Squad.

like, changing the opening pair
getting back laxman at No.3
getting out young and new faces into the squad
grooming a new talented alrounder(for future)
BCCI and Captain nurturing professionalism

no Ganguly,no Dravid, forget about shewag,then
who else could be the captain? why not LAXMAN,
just, go back and vizualize (what laxman does
in the present squad, patting the plalyers,
encouraging them and actively involving himself
(SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT, right ?????)

alas, it's high time each member of the Indian team must introspect and probably this break must help them to get things together. (especially seniors)

friends, any feedback is welcome.

Everyday is not a sunday to the cricket team
by Kenyad Sweden Pereira on Apr 17, 2005 11:38 PM

Everyday is not a sunday there are wins and losses, its not a problem to lose or to win provided the attitude of winning is in our hearts, i feel this was a gift given to pakistan from India.There is always a tomorrow.Be proud to be a Indian.Its better than pointing fingers at someone then thinking of how it would have been if u were one of them that you pointed your finger at.

india's defeat
by Sahil on Apr 17, 2005 08:46 PM

Hii Prem
First of all let me congratulate you on your good work. India lost series against Pakistan, this is shocking but again I must say that they were rowing against the tide. I mean to say that Pakistani's deserve this win as they were professional throughout the series. This is a humilating defeat for Indian team and more for the millions of fans across the country. Pakistani players like Inzimam, shahid afridi, younis khan and Rana Naveed Ul hassan fought for their team and they never looked to be intrested in their own gains. they play for their country which Indians never do. Players like Sachin, Virender Viru Sehwag are most intrested in doing add films, this is what they are most suited to do, The game which bests fits their type is Gilli Danda and not cricket. They must play this game. They are bunch of fools who take the opposition forgranted, this is most saddening that player like sachin and Virender Viru Sehwag play for their own petty gains. From the very begining tendulkar never has had succes against pakistani's which is best justified by his performance in chennai test. In comparison to Lara, Tendulkar is nothing but hype that too created by the media.
