So because you have not heard Gavaskar's version of the story, you are willing to believe any gossip that confirms your view of him.

Same goes with Sunil.. u might think he is one of the greatest sportman from india.. i don't.. we just have to agree to disagreee
Indians don't think he is a racist, neither has any West Indian commented about his book, You can go jump in the lake.
You have to know that everyone his thier opinion and point of view about issues.. maybe indians think this way..and approve of him as racist.. it is all good i am not judging anyone...i just happen to dissagree with that ..
Calling symonds monkey is not the same as saying "Kill Symonds" or "knock his bloody head off". But I don't think you are intelligent enough to notice the difference. And how do you guarantee that he will never say anything like that about the Indian crowd sometime in the future. He just called McCullum a "Kiwi lump of ****", incase you missed your greatly admired Symonds latest rant on national radio.
I don't think that justify his coment to me.. i just give you the example of Andrew symond.. he was called Monkey and you know how racist is that if you call someone from african backgound.. Monkey.. yet you never see Symond writing such a thing about indian crowd..
Have you seriously considered the fact that this was India's first ever ODI match or are you just speaking thru your arse as usual. Just because you have a good strike rate on day A does not mean you can bat with the same strike rate on day B. I have seen days when Jayasurya has struggled. That does not mean he has something against Jayawardene. Only a fool would make such an association.
ya but one thing you have to remember that he played test matches in past and made centuries with better strike rate.. naturaly he couldn't play faster for the win? honestly it doesn't justify it.
Since when is controversy or being controversial the same as being bad?? Just how dumb are you??
i have admited that i am not a big fan of Gavaskar whether it was commentating or batting..and certainly not his attitude..
the reason i mention the world series issue because it is considered conterversial and we are talking about conterversial issues..
Gavaskar walked off the field and you paint him as bad and unsporting. So by the same measure, Pakistan walked off the pitch in England, so by YOUR own standards they are bad and unsporting. See how warped your reasoning is??
if you r implying that i have accused the whole indian team of unsporting you r wrong.. we are talking about the attitude of Gavaskar..and if you r accusing pakistani team of being unsporting because the decisions that Inzi took in oval test.. then that is wrong again.. but that is totaly different issue..
how the bloody hell do you like those people for their game when you were not even born when they retired and at the same time you dislike Gavaskar's game??
the difference is that i like those cricketers for their game.. and to be honest.. i would feel the same way as i feel about Gavaskar if people tell me that they are the greatest sportman in the game..
