India has done well in the past decade but for the West Indies debacle in the last WC.

they didnt throw their wickets, we took them. did you see dhoni jump when bhajji got akmal off a beauty? forget that, when have you ever seen dhoni jump like that? until then akmal was stepping out to yuvi etc. and bhajji got him off a beauty , drew him and opened him up like a bad suture on a bleeding cut.

Ambar wrote:I'm tired of this "Misbah cost us the game" theory. By 21st over, the RR had crept above 6.0/over. They kept losing wickets at regular intervals and Misbah played the sheet-anchor role. What about Asad and Hafeez? They threw away their wickets when the pitch had eased and they were well set in. The match for Pakistan was lost in the first 15 overs, not the last.


Other than WKK types and losers like Shastri and Manjrekar talking thru the other orifice, Paks were out of the game when 260 was posted by India. The clue here is the way SRT and MSD batted when they were together, it looked even at that time that they were batting for only 250-270 as the ball was biting and talking.
The moment 10 overs were finished from the Indian side with out major damage like 100 runs for no loss, Pakis were out of the game.
An astute friend of mine who is an umpire said during the innings break that Paks will make 225. Betfair was offering 1.71 for India and 2.34 for Pak thruout most of the game. Betfair predicted most of the games correctly except for the famous chokers game.

Shastri says some lame cliched things, but he ain't no WaiKiKi. As a comm, his job is to make the match interesting for viewers and add suspense. Bugger was just doing his job. If he makes a prediction that Pakis suck and will get out for 220, the tension of the match is killed. RJ comes from the SMG school of standing up to goras.

Most players who played between 1987-1998 are WKK's and dhimmis. These guys barely won and throw in the match fixing by the D company, Jadeja and Azhar, they had very little self belief. Indian behavior changed only after Ganguly-Wright took over.

I agree he tries to be neutral during the game and generally stands up to Goras, but when facing Pakis he displays a WKK or shared destiny mentality on and off the game. He may be a anti Paki at home, but his actions speak otherwise.

Mostly true. Kapil is the first one to change the attitudes and he is an odd man out. The real change started with the current seniors such as Ganguly, Tendulkar et al.

Remember, when he is doing comms, he's at "work" and has to be at his best behavior...

Muppala, not SRT, it was mostly Ganguly. SRT is of the opinion that he will kick ass with the bat. Gangu gave it back both ways.

About Malinga. Any allegation that he 'chucks' is incorrect. He does not, and can not use the bending arm in that action. His is a perfectly legal action.

Yes, his famous yorker is unplayable, unless you are a jedi 'who can see things before they happen'. Even someone, like SRT who had trained himself to block out all kinds of optical illusions, it is next to impossible to position the bat in the timeframe of milliseconds he gets to see the trajectory.

But, the good part is, the round arm action makes it difficult to control line and length at the same time, so he can make this unplayable type ball only occasionally.

BCCI should make the moves on PRC now and get them at least associate nation status in Kirket (along with the same to nepal as well).

Rest assured the CPC with its clinical precision will 'coach' its team to attain decent levels of performance very soon.

Then when Yindia and PRC play kirket, we can reliably claim a third of humanity's playing a sport - compares well with world cup fever in the league stages, mussay, eh?

imo taity and even lee sometimes bend their arms(lee only sometimes). but malinga is consistent and straight arm. its just that ball release is from neck height. kinda like a 6 yr old kid bowling normally but very fast :) also his release point is very near the stumps so mostly it will be leaving the right hand batsman or swing in the air into the bat for fuller length delivery.

once u look at it as just a kid bowling from infront of the stumps, the mental model is not scary. they can practice with a bowling machine from that angle and fire full length yorkers.

in the past our top batsmen have dealt with him comfortably enough. its in hitting murali for heavy runs where we have felt some pain.

To give credit where it is due, Aleem Dar is a good umpire. And there is always UDRS.

Yes that is aleem dar. But he is a competent umpire. Besides I think we've gotten the hang of using DRS by now and will use it properly if need arises.

Man, that Caddick 6 at 2:40 still gives me goose bumps. Too much talk and come match time, get whacked over square leg for 6!!

Marten wrote:Singha saar, it is near impossible facing a bowler who releases the ball at that height and pace, esp. if the ball is curving into your toes. The real problem is that Malinga releases the ball right in front of umpire's face. Not easy at all to see the fingers on the ball at the point of delivery.

Which is why Malinga is unplayable for club-level batsmen. At the Int'l level, one expects players to cope better, but hitting him will not be easy on days where he gets the line right.


Martenmullah joo have got my dhoti shivering.....alright!
And I haven't seen any batsman take Malinga apart :roll:

I hope he has a bad day at office on Saturday....otherwise we are doomed!
Damn why doesnt he come down with some injury! I feel he will be the man top watch out for on Saturday :(( :(( :((
