Re: Twin Engine Deck Based Fighter (TEDBF): News & Discussion

FA-18 is 2 meters longer than TEDBF. So, as expected, everything else is greater with FA-18 than TEDBF.

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

Fair enough. 44 away average means he has 35 average at home. His batting after the Melbourne century would have come under more scrutiny if we lost those matches. But one important thing to keep in mind is Rahane mostly bats after the ball is old. That makes a lot of difference and he should be tak...
