Boxing day test has proved that the drama of this format is beyond compare. Thrilling. Magnifique.

Turning points of the match, imo: Aus 6/241 (1st inn.), India 2/214 (1st inn.), and Aus 8/166 (2nd inn.).

Australia's wagging tail = Dhoni's fault. In both innings. Top order or tail, intensity has to be the same. No exceptions.

India's dismal batting (esp in 1st innings when there was no pressure whatsoever) Well, it's like a deja vu. Been the case since the tour of England.

Gambhir. The guy should watch Sangakkara's latest innings against SA. So bloody disciplined, left outside the off stump in an aggressive manner. Kept going.

One more test for Gambhir, imo. If he fails, give Rahane a fooking chance. Why does bcci keep sending young players overseas to warm benches. Lol @ Varun Aaron. Biggest victim of bcci trolling.


Hey Jza, Ain't Sydney a turner? Why are they growing grass and planning to go with four quickies. Devious much, eh mate? What happened in Perth last year? Oh that's right, Shaun Tait decided to hang his boots. Ahahaha!

Fuck the future, it's about winning matches today. Taking care of the future means giving future batsmen the opportunity to play shite teams for now, but against Australia Laxman stays for fuck sakes. I wouldn't be going to the game for 3 days if Laxman wasn't playing. Yeah sure Tendulkar & Dravid will be there but Laxman makes that trinity complete. Rohit Sharma will get his turn. To be honest there isn't a whole lot wrong with India's batting. Sure Gambhir fucked up but that's because he got himself out. There aren't any technical problems with Gambhir, just poor discipline.

Bozo. Yeah is seems that the SCG curators have decided to be a little more patriotic this time the fuckers.

Little can be so unfortunate to modern Australian cricketers as want of decorum, since their gladiatorial intensity raises envy of the cricketing world. Field aggression is, perhaps, directly correlated to performance.

Merv Hughes, Rod Marsh, Mark Waugh, Woodfull etc. were some of the best "sledgends".

Laxman is going through a form slump which he can come out of. While his run scoring has been ordinary on this tour by his standards, he did quite well last year as did Dravid who was the leading run scorer. It's a question of whether it makes more sense to bring in youngsters with greater run scoring potential. I think perhaps they should stick with Laxman, he'll come good soon. Or is that just nostalgia talking?

The reason I asked the question was because I hear epitaphs being written for VVS Laxman all over the place. For ex., http://bit.ly/zqeBm1 One tries to stay emotionally detached, but today I sure as hell flinched and looked away as Laxman edged that to slip.

Give him a test series in India and then retire him. He deserves one more series I'd say. I just hope that India's next big 3 or 4 batsmen can be every bit as stylish as Dravid, Tendulkar, Laxman & Ganguly. So what would India's post Laxman & Dravid lineup look like?

1. Gambhir
2. Sehwag
3. Rahane
4. Tendulkar
5. Kohli
6. R.Sharma
7. Dhoni
8. Ashwin
Bowlers...

Pretty much. I don't have a doomsday fetish either. No batting collapse or field placement will hurt Indian cricket more than BCCI's lack of vision.
Structural changes instead of short-term remedies.

Thought this was oddly amusing.

^True.



What ails Indian test cricket? Akash Chopra wrote a nice article on India's revamped domestic cricket structure. He argues that the changes are merely cosmetic. Substandard pictches (read dead rubbers) are left untouched.


I read Raina's interview in Hundastan Times today. He's going on a personal training stint in Australia (to work on his technique and short-pitched deliveries). He might play a few club matches there. This is solid commitment.

Flat pitches are a direct result of an archaic perception that more runs > large crowds/T.V. audience/Advertisements/Sponsorship etc. > more money.

Good initiative by Raina but Cheteshwar Pujara is almost ready to don the test cap. Although, Raina is still a solid bat for ODIs. Hard hitter; calm finisher. Perfect partner for Dhoni.

Re: Sri Lanka-England second test at Colombo

Strange that a top test bowler (Swann) is woefully unsuccessful against sub-continental batsmen, especially under conditions suitable for his craft.

Good point.


Well, I think Raina's initiative has more to do with his incapability to play short balls, in both Tests and ODIs. We've seen him struggle overseas. Bowlers deliberately pitch the ball short to him.

Pujara was impressive on his debut, certainly test material. But I'm conflicted about picking him ahead of Raina is tests.

IPL team of the year 2012

1. Chris Gayle
Runs 733, strike rate 161, sixes 59
A no-brainer at the top of the order. Let's move on.

2. Gautam Gambhir (capt)
Runs 590, strike rate 144, 50s 6
Edged out Virender Sehwag, Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane for the other opener's slot because of his consistency and ability to score on difficult Eden Gardens pitches. Gambhir's passion trumped MS Dhoni's cool, so he's our captain. Also because of this legendary line, "We did it for Balaji."

3. Suresh Raina
Runs 441, strike rate 136, wickets 2, economy 7.50
Had an average season before a blitz in the final, during which he pulled bouncers and successfully attacked Sunil Narine. Made the cut because he can chip in with a couple of overs of spin if one of our bowlers has an off day. Raina was expectedly exceptional at cover.

4. Jacques Kallis
Runs 409, strike rate 107, wickets 15, economy 7.46
The dearth in quality Indian allrounders meant this role had go to an overseas player - Kallis, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, Kieron Pollard and Azhar Mahmood were the contenders. Kallis won because he was in better bowling form than the rest, and that majestic extra cover drive off Bravo in the final was the highlight of an innings that captured Kallis at his reliable best (in the T20 format, of course).

5. Rohit Sharma
Runs 433, strike rate 127, best 109*
Played one of the innings of the tournament on a not-so-easy pitch at Eden Gardens. Didn't have a spectacular season but still was one of the better Indian middle-order batsmen going around. Pairs up with Raina to strengthen the off-side field.

6. MS Dhoni (wk)
Runs 357, strike rate 129
Overseas players are more useful as bowlers or allrounders - unless you're Gayle - so this spot had to go to an Indian, ruling out AB de Villiers and Kumar Sangakkara. Among the Indians, Dhoni did not have much competition. Dinesh Karthik, anyone? While his keeping was top notch right through, Dhoni's batting was ordinary until the playoffs, and then he brought out the helicopter shot and everything else.

7. Ambati Rayudu
Runs 333, strike rate 132
The finisher in our team. Rayudu often had to speed up innings after Mumbai Indians' top order took its time, and he performed the role admirably. Good to watch too, played almost no cringe-worthy shots.

8. Dale Steyn
Wickets 18, average 16, economy 6.10
Perhaps the toughest spot to fill because Morne Morkel and Lasith Malinga were worthy contenders. Both of them, however, flagged towards the end of the season but Steyn left with the spell of the tournament. His 3 for 8 that knocked out Royal Challengers was unmatched for its hostile accuracy and frightening pace. It takes someone special to rattle Gayle.

9. Parvinder Awana
Wickets 17, average 22, economy 7.91
With quality Indian fast bowlers in short supply, Awana was one of the best on show in the IPL. A vital cog in the Kings XI attack, he bowled at brisk pace and moved the ball away consistently.

10. Umesh Yadav
Wickets 19, average 24, economy 7.42
The highest Indian wicket-taker, although Umesh did play five more games than Awana did. Vinay Kumar also claimed 19 but his economy rate was poor. Umesh found the Kotla pitch to his liking - it was fast and had bounce.

11. Sunil Narine
Wickets 24, average 13.50, economy 5.47
Another no-brainer, and he has a mohawk too. No other spinner came close.

Fine Knock by Kumar Sangkkkara 199.. unlucky not to get his double ton. after a bad run this is what Sangkkara needed. time on the middle to find his way and get runs.

Pakistan in a deep trouble. 36/3 needed a further 474 runs to win.
