****stri is dire.
Yeah. It was embarrassing to listen to Shastri and Gavaskar yesterday.
RIP Phil Hughes. Forever 63*
Yeah never been a fan of Sunny or Ravi S as commentators...
The British press has been negative towards Indian team which is expected... Don't know where jealousy comes into it though...
Nassar is good though and also liking Ganguly as commentator .
lol.. sounds like a ploy by Star Cricket to get more people tuning in.. And they will need it, with the India is playing..
Anyways, I posted a bit of a verbatim of what went on in the official tour thread.. If anyone is interested in facts rather than just wiseass cracks that mean nothing, you can read that and draw your own conclusions..
FWIW, I think Shastri got too heated up about nothing but they handled it pretty well, talking it out face to face during a commentary stint..
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
A cricket supporter forever

Check out this awesome e-fed:
Shastri is probably jealous because he lost the gig on Sky to Sanjay Manjrekar.
what? Manjrekar is at Sky???
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
that could be it
I found it refreshing tbh. I'm no Shastri fan after this outburst, but this form of commentary sure beats the hell out of the bland "state the obvious or spout inane "facts" about opposition players" mantra you get 90% of the time.
Let me put it this way: Shashtri commentating alongside Channel Nine would make my day.
War. Beautiful, glourious bloody war in the commentary box.
This was awesome.
Better than politically-correct-insecure-about-job blabbers, no?
And neither side has lost or won it, it's not a tug-of-war. They have different opinions about which both are very vocal. And neither of them like the other side of the opinion. Fair enough.

It wasn't that heated. It was two people calling it as they said it, that's all.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
