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

    Okay, India lost, but a lot of lessons to take out of the series. The pace attack actually performed okay and we should act swiftly now in discarding the young batsmen who have been inconsistent in favour of some who have performed well in the domestic scene.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    not too perturbed abt the loss, tbh.. 4 first choice players missing.. Wonder what SL would have done without Dilshan, Mahela, Malinga and Randiv... But congrats to SL.. It was a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation for them with the other two teams being understrength and them being full strength but to their credit, they got the job done. Dilshan and Malinga are just so awesome..
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Have been in spot of bother. But, Thushara (injured), Murali (rested), Fernando (not used), Kulatunga (criminally not picked by select suckers) and Chandimal, who are deserving places in that line up would have made up a lot for it.

    Credit to SL, you could see they just wanted it much more than us. They were very good in the field and the partnerships between Dilshan, Mahela and Sanga were excellent.

    Majorly pissed off with the likes of Waterboy, he had atleast four lives in his 20-odd and still didn't capitalize. Karthik was also a big failure.

    Karthik was at the rough end of few bad decisions. Rohit Sharma should have opened and Karthik should've played at 6/7

    Who were our 4 first choice players? Sachin and Zaheer (both who we need to get used to not being around). Who else?

    Tendulkar
    Sehwag
    Pujara
    Yuvraj
    Dravid/Dhawan
    Raina
    Dhoni +
    Harbhajan
    Zaheer
    Mishra

    _________
    Tiwary/Uthappa


    IMO

    The earlier we get Pujara in, the better our chances of salvaging our World Cup. Jadeja to be served a restraining order preventing him from getting within 12 nautical miles of the continent.
