    Thus endeth Tendulkar's Test career (or should). I am an Eagles fan so I've grown up thinking that applauding an opposition player while he is still playing is pretty stupid, but much respect to the Aussie crowd for that ovation.

    Hey Kohli, maybe if you weren't such a pissy little ****, maybe you'd get some respect too.

    It's a pretty sad ending to Tendulkar's test matches in Australia. But then again, that's cricket for you. Peak performances tend to fly by, but the poorer ones tend to feel as though they are lasting forever.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Dropping? Nah. Should retire though. The only reason to hang around would be so a whole bunch wouldn't go at the same time.

    And no one is going to drop Sehwag or Gambhir either - two years of home pitches coming right up.

    Take for example what we're seeing with these no ball referals. Sure I'd prefer them to be called if they're over the line, but if it's so close that the umpire can't tell, then I don't care if the batsmen is out and there's a tiny millimetre over the line, as long as the moment isn't spoiled for the viewing public.
    I know it's different live at the ground, but I find the buildup to an LBW referral actually pretty exciting when on tv. Moments like that are often huge in the context of the match and drawing out that tension as you watch the replay is great. Assuming we get a quick decision of course which is what I hate about the technology in League.

    The no ball referrals are always dire viewing though, particularly as it gives you the sense of an umpire simply being too lazy to do his job properly.

    Still crappy reason IMO. So they wait a few minutes. I find it ironic how a cricket fan - Test cricket especially - could have such a short attention span that such a thing could diminish your enjoyment of the game to the extent that you'd forgo getting decisions right for the sake of it. I watch cricket to enjoy it too - the drama of questionable decisions even - but because players have mastered their art and not because some other player is getting questionable decisions, which in essence is denying me from enjoying said masterful player.

    What I hate about Tendulkar is the fact that he goes into this shell and gets out defending. Your a naturally aggressive player, just bat positively man <_<

    He absolutely tore into Brad Hogg on our last tour here, and might have ended Nathan Hauritz test career in the 2010 series, why the **** you defending against the likes of Clarke and Lyon is beyond me.

    Didn't say I would drop Sachin. Gambhir and Sehwag will score runs at home.

    Laxman and Dravid I would drop.


    Let me re-clarify: on performance, all of them are droppable but you can't drop your entire top six at the same time. So considering the next two years are all at home, I would keep Sehwag, Gambhir and Tendulkar. Though if I were Tendulkar I might think about retiring after the next Test in Bombay, at the latest (his home ground).

    Well that just smacks of ignorance towards other peoples point of views. You watch cricket for 5 days for those little bursts of excitement. If you blunt those bursts of excitement then it becomes less attractive to watch imo.
