    Yeah it's utterly ridiculous. Even more ridiculous is that he gets praised for it. Eg: Ishant in the CT final, Joginder in the t20. He gets lauded for pulling off an out of the box decision which won us the match. Well, you stupid ****s, if he'd done the logical thing maybe we would've won more easily

    Rahane leaves balls and then feels the pressure and goes for a heave? Stupid cricket.

    I hope if we lose today, Dhoni does a Sammy and goes, "It's SL's day. Its unfortunate but God willed it."

    Deliberately anti-jinxing, essentially. So talking up opposition players or talking down your own players in hope of jinxing them into performing the opposite way to what you predicted. It's just a joke obviously as our posts don't have a real effect on results, but it became really annoying for a while and because it was such a dickish thing to do and Gambhir's such a dick, it got called that.

    don't think he played a lot of games, especially since he's an overseas player. In any case I don't think that's enough time to read and work out a bowler. Maybe if we had played a few ODIs against him it might be different.
