    Not suprised India are looking likely to chase Australia down. On these flat wickets its alot easier to chase as you know what pace you need to be at and can do so accordingly. Where as when you are trying to set a score you dont really know what you need

    Pathetic, pathetic performance by the Indian middle and lower order. Age seems to be catching up with Dhoni, and the new guys had another bad day on the field. Bhuvneswar Kumar should consider spin bowling like Tendulkar; his "pace" deliveries are just not good enough for international cricket.

    First match- बढ़त लेने उतरेगी टीम।
    Second match- हिसाब बरावर करने उतरेगी टीम।
    Third match- सीरीज बचाने उतरेगी टीम।
    Fourth match- इज्जत बचाने उतरेगी टीम।
    Fifth match- गांड मरवाने उतरेगी टीम।

    For a country that boasts of having the best bowling attack in the world, Pakistan sure is getting destroyed by New Zealand. It will also be a good time for them to realize that bowlers alone cannot win you matches all the time.
    I hope the Indian team gets their shit act together in the next match, and the bowlers do something for once. Ashwin should be brought back in, even if they prepare a rock-hard pitch. He's still the best guy we have.
    And I guess the question that was in people's minds about why the top order batsmen didn't accelerate enough between overs 41-45 in the previous matches, that has been answered in the last match. Once the top order is gone, the rest of them just can't get the job done.
    Another problem is that, all rounders should be players that can put runs on the board and take wickets, but our current all rounders seem to be guys that can neither play a disciplined innings, nor put the opposition's batsmen under pressure.
    Dhoni is always like "Well I felt we were 10-15 runs short." Oh no, sir, even if your team had scored 10-15 runs more, the Aussie batsmen would have simply played with a little more urgency and would have gotten the job done nonetheless.

    Well, the India-Australia series is going as expected.

    A left-arm spinner picks up 12 wickets.
    A captain scores a century.
    The other team collapses to spin.
    A off-spinner takes 8 wickets.

    Oh..Wait :confused:

    no it was expected that india would win this in a sweep. The aussies werent meant to be able to play spin. And on top of all that the selectors have dropped our 2nd best batsmen for a fuckwit who couldnt hit a beach ball and picked a donkey over the biggest show in world cricket

    I didn't expect India to win. I did expect Australia to win.

    Who are you talking about? Renshaw has been damn good. Smith is good as well.

    Why give Ashwin more overs when Jadeja is getting more success?

    Shaun Marsh. Dont care that he's made runs this innings he's a spud who has had 40 fucking chances to prove that he's a test cricketer and he's not good enough. His brother is a bigger donkey and the two of them only get picked on their last name

    Dead set. Kawaja has proven time and time again he has what it takes to be a force in our lineup for a long time. Bit sick of the chances the Marsh boys get but it's hard to deny they've got talent. They just never use it.

    Bit weird to say that Australia has had all these bowling legend in Warne, Lily, McGrath, Lee etc and two nobodies from Australia have two records that the greats couldn't achieve. Obviously I know it's different because of times, pitch etc but that's not what the history book is gonna say.

    Both Mitchell Starc and Marsh ruled out of the series.

    Onto a different series, NZ and SA are having quite a match.

    KKR choking. :disappointed:

    Narine has been shockingly making significant runs while opening.

    You can't mention choking and not mention RCB :rolleyes:

    IPL would be a lot more watchable if Danny Morrison was not yelling at every ball...

    I'm damn happy about RCB yesterday. I lost all hope for KKR when they were 98 for 6. Turns RCB gets all out at half of that. :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

    You should listen Hindi commentary. Akash Chopra & Harsha Bhogle are gems.

    Sorry to quote you after all these months, but do you (and others in Australia) still share these beliefs after the past three matches?

    On the subject of the Ashes, while I expected Australia to win, the margin of the victories has been quite a surprise.

    Two teams in transition with some very ordinary/unproven players.

    To an extent I think people do still feel it but are willing to put up with it because they are making runs and we are winning, it'll eventually turn to shit and everyone will be after them again, probably by the end of the South Africa tour. The lynch mob was ready for Mitch Marsh when he dropped that catch and took 0 wickets, along with Handscomb taking a screamer.

    The thing about the whole thing that frustrates me is that its all about sheffield shield performances but yet Victoria has won it 3 years running and doesnt have a single representative in the side. But oh its about individual performance not team performance and yet maxwell comes out and makes 281 in the shield and still doesnt get called up. Matt Short made a 100 against England in a tour match in Townsville, captain of the Cricket Australia XI, and yet Mark Waugh who is a selector said he has no idea who he is. There is a shit tonne of politics in the sport and its corrupt (not criminally but still corrupt) and yet the selectors can sit there and say they got it right because England have been woeful.

    Yeah thats a vent, good to get that off the chest

    Sadly that does happen a lot. Even in India, there have been cases of players getting selected because they are from the same state as selectors.

    Does anyone else think there will be some post-Ashes changes to the England squad/coaches? Will Cook be the one to face the axe?

    The India-SA match is going along great. India slightly ahead but SA have an amazing bowling attack.

    Also, WTF??? Rohit picked over Rahane in a test match in SA?
