Hard luck lads. Maybe you should ask David Gower and Mike Atherton to pad up for Guwahati. Today England committed hara kiri:wonder:

Dravid wants to "experiment" for the remaining three matches. Maybe he will ask Dhoni to bowl and Harbhajan to keep wickets.:D

India can claim to be good only if they can consistently beat the convicts.

Any side that can do that deserves to be rated as magnificent, not merely good.;)

If the England can't beat the Indians at cricket, what would the result be in a riot between the two sets of fans?:lol:

Easy. If it is to be cricket, Indian fans would beat the English fans. Nothing more satisfying than beating an Englishman at his own game.

If it is to be football, English fans would beat the Indian fans because the Indian fans would be heavily outnumbered. All Indian football fans would rather be watching a Brazilian third division match than watch an India versus England match...:(

Football fans are primatives. Indians are too civilised to get involved with the brutal game. ;)

But, Bangladesh and Australia. Australia nearly 300 behind, only 1 batsman still in place. yourock

Sydney's Daily Telegraph calls it PATHETIC.:D

Even if Banglas eventually lose the test they have already morally won it.

Australia 152/6 against Bangladesh trailing almost 275 runs with 4 wickets left to avoid a follow-on.

Uneffingbelievable Banglas.
:scrollhah :congrats: yourock :Party: :cheers: :happy:

Meanwhile Dhoni is the darling of the masses.

" From "Sachin, Sachin" the most popular refrain at grounds all over the country these days is "Dhoni, Dhoni." He commands the sort of popularity reserved for the superstars. People like his batting style, the towering sixes he hits and also the `inside out' fours off even good deliveries. Those strokes are his innovation, like the flicked six off a yorker at Goa.

He smiles. "It was a natural. I played a lot of tennis ball cricket in Ranchi and we had to face a lot of yorkers. We use to play on 18-yard pitches and had to be ready for balls pitching in the blockhole. You have to create scoring opportunities."

Dhoni Rocks!!!

A draw is not going to happen unless it rains, so hopefully the Bangas can put up a decent total to chase.:D

Ponting was guided by pure inspiration when he tried to withdraw those remarks shortly before this test began.:D

Trescothick said that one of the reasons he went home is that they spend too much time on tour away from families playing too many games. Now Afridi has left Test matches before the World Cup. There really are too much international matches played - no wonder half the England Ashes team is walking wounded. Is there any real need for One-day series to be 7 matches long? 5 would seem to be enough, especially for England since the last 3 are invariably pointless anyway.:2cents:

I'm with you mate. 5 would be ideal.

Maybe everybody should have two teams like the Ozzies, one for one-dayers and one for tests.:wonder:
