foolish bcci.
y bcci is not doing anything against dhoni's ban.

i think, during dalmia era, bcci fought strongly with icc against such injustices to saurav n others.
but they r not talking anything on the issue. they simply made viru the capt n forgot the issue of dhoni.

even players of wi hv suffered against ausis in the current test played in ausis. icc shud b taught a lesson.

Crucial for Karthik
by Vijay ramanathan on Dec 21, 2009 12:38 PM  | Hide replies

karthik's problem is very simple...if he does not do well, he ll be out of reckoning, if he does do well still he has to wait for dhoni to rest, to get another chance...the pressutre on him is intense...any player needs to be given a consistent run, like what is given to jadeja and virat...

Team India @ 2011
by Think Tank on Dec 21, 2009 07:56 AM

Fixed members assuming current performances and experience and assuming the fitness certificate:


Most Probables:
Ishant/R.P.Singh/Nehra/Praveen Kumar

can be considered considering Indian wickets and experience.

Rahul/ Amit/ Powar/ Pragyan/Irfan

Not sure with this team India can make it as they badly lack in the bowling and fielding front. Also no all rouders with winning combo... at the moment things look difficult...

There should be 4 fixed bowlers based on conditions (may be 3 medium pacers 1 Spin) The 10 over quota can be shared among Yuvaraj/ Virendra/ Possibly Sachin based on his elbow confirtness

But this can't be fixed for all matches and grounds so the other combination could be..

Zaheer/ R.P/ Ishant/ Irfan (possibly the only all rounder considering Dhoni doesn't bowl otherwise he is also an AR ) and then Harbhajan or Amit or Pragyan...

5 standard batsmen
1 Standard WK
3 Standard Pacers
1 Standard Spinner (I would prefer Leggi but only on the turn assisting wickets as India can't afford offering runs as they don't have world class Leggie as in Shane or Anil)

and finally 1 Standard all rouder-possibly only Irfan..

I can still think on Rahul as he can make lot of difference in fielding/ wicket keeping if reqd/ mentoring and off course batting..

He is a kind of Steve Waugh..Others may not agree, this is just an opinion not a bet..

That Ravindra Jadeja has finally learnt to hold his bat in the right manner(considering his performances in last 2 matches)!

agreed. he has shown some positive batting display coming at crucial time. may b he needs to change his grip of the bat. n if he can bat the way like in last 2 odis, he can b an asset in odi

bakwas wkt
by vinay on Dec 21, 2009 12:08 AM

when the capt says that its a good wkt to bat on, that means a bakwas wkt with no support to bowlers.
n although lankans r mising their bowlers like murli, fernando, mathews, it doesnt matter. coz there is no role of bowlers on such pitches. the more u hit the runs, the more chances of ur winning.
