    Happy days for SJS

    SJS must be over the moon. First India beat pakistan and now
    Punjab (with an average age of 24) have shocked defending champions Mumbai at the ****hede to enter the
    Ranji trophy final; that too after conceding a 120 odd lead on the first innings.

    Who has seen Punjab play ? Any India prospects in there ?

    Hahahah the ****hede stadium.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    Haha. Thanks. Though I am not a Punjab supporter. I was born and brought up and played all my cricket in Delhi so my cricketing loyalties are with Delhi. Punjab yes because it is North. But it doesnt matter really.

    Punjab will play Railways who have Sanjay Bangar and Murali Kaarthik from the known names. They have a batsman called Amit Pagnis who is supposed to be very good but I havent seen him.

    Railways might beat Punjab. They are a very competitive side though without any glamorous names !

    IF they have Sanjay Bangar, it's not much. Bowls at just about medium-pace (and doesn't take it seriously, either, though he's a better bowler than a batsman), bats out too many dot-balls (no real technique) and excess baggage on the field. Interestingly, he averaged 36 with the bat and 26 with the ball, in 3 Duleep matches.

    Murali Karthik? Maybe. He doesn't need numerology to improve his performance, but just relies on his own bowling. He bowls too quickly, which is why he can go for more than a few runs, and can be one-paced. His batting is decent (he was initially a batsman) but hasn't done much outside Ranji. He's slow on the field, more or less a problem with the whole side.

    The key player is JP Yadav. He's been railroading battign sides reglarly. He averages under 20 in Ranji, under 10 in Duleep and has reinvented himself as a player- from a batting all-rounder to a strike bowler who can score runs. He's very aggressive with the bat, bowls steady medium-pace (really slow, keeper-stand-up pace but it works) and can take high catches. He can definitely turn a match on its head in favour of Railways. Much better than Sanjay Bangar.

    Pagnis is a run-of-the-mill opener who once played for Mumbai and India-A. He is quite steady and can play the anchor role quite well, particularly when JP Yadav is batting- then he needs to.

    Punjab are a very competitive side themselves and have a lot of power in their side. They have the dangerous Yuvraj Singh in their ranks, along with the steady Dinesh Mongia and Pankaj Dharmani. Opener Ravneet Ricky has been performing consistently, but Sodhi has been miscast as an opener and has struggled throughout the series, averageing 22, which shoots up to over 60 if you count a massive 251 not out. That said, he's also done well with the ball. Seamer Gagandeep Singh bowls the in-cutters and out-cutters to good effect and has nearly 7 wickets a match this season.

    I am a member of the DDCA.
    Yes I know I can do a better job. Anyone can do a better job than those jokers but no one is going to offer it to me

    Punjab are a good side. Their Pakistani coach seems to be doing wonders. Who knows, he might even challenge Woolmer
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Did you watch Sonali Chander and a full studio audience take DDCA Chairman Sunill Dev to the cleaners on NDTV24x7's Cricket Controversies? Sidhu found it very entertaining.

    I cant stand Siddhu so I never watch his programmes. Its sad really because he is very knowledgeable about the game but he is very very irritating.

    He can be quite entertaining, except when he starts making bold statements, when he becomes intolerable.

    That said, Sidhu didn't say much in that segment of the programme- Sunil Dev had a lot to answer.

    Pakistan's best bet is very much to have someone in charge who is not Pakistani.
