    Am I the only one driven crazy by Dhoni sitting there pounding his thigh all through the game in the dugout? What was that all about? Nervousness, superstition?

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    This Indian team is tailor made for spinning, low and slow tracks, or flat pitches. The only player who has the skills to excel in Australia is Kohli, and to a certain extent Dhoni, India at best will be outside Favourites in that world cup.

    Yeah, it was the first time I saw Dhoni doing that and it was quite irritating. And in the background the commentators pointing out how cool Dhoni was in the situation.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Guess it is his way of applauding while keeping his calm cool demeanour.

    Rohit will do well if there isn't much sideways movement imo. Loves driving on the up

    India were simply out played, and they had no answers.
    15-20 runs is massive in this format. Like, absolutely humongous.

    I don't understand why criticizing a player for a poor performance which has cost us the trophy means we don't remember his past achievements. That doesn't make him beyond reproach. He deserves the criticism because it really was a poor innings I'm sure even he'd agree. That said, stoning his house is typical pathetic fanatical India and is absolutely disgraceful. Call for him to be dropped if you want and abuse him all you want on social media you idiots.

    And i do put more of the blame on Dhoni anyway

    It was painfully obvious he shouldn't have been playing. A selection blunder more than anything.

    Malinga is an absolute champ ftr. That last over was amazing and really underrated. Can't fathom why more bowlers don't practice those yorkers like he does.

    It does provide validation for us armchair critics, tbh - both he and Kula didn't try any fancy ****, they just bowled wide yorkers to two of the finest LO finishers the game has seen and completely tied them down.

    Like so many people said bowlers should.

    Shami might do ok if they figure out how to set fields for him.

    I'm just happy the Indians have shown a willingness to drop underperforming players of late (Yuvraj the exception but still).
