    The "Scorecard says it's even, but my team can't win" thread: Gambhiring

    So you think it's smart, funny, cute or mildly inventive to nominate your team as completely out of a match when the scores are close to even?

    You're wrong.

    But if you have to indulge in the ********, annoying practice of Gambhiring (as its been coined) please do it here, for the sake of forum atmosphere.

    Are people actually superstitious enough to believe in jinxing/anti-jinxing?

    I've been saying England would win every competition ever since the beginning of time. Only began to even remotely bear fruit when Flower took charge.

    To be fair this game is and series is too close to call as both Australia and India on paper have decent batting line ups but of late on the field they are comically bad and collapse at the drop of a hat. Can understand either set of fans being pessimistic on this one.

    India are just as likely to win by 8 wickets as lose by 50 runs, so unpredictable of late. Could be what Windie says, old players past their best (feel dirty actually agreeing with something he says) but the new guys have done nothing really anyway.

    It's worse than Gambhiring, it's as bad as Symondsing.

    Almost nobody likes Gautam Gambhir outside of India here.

    I find all the "Is X the new Y?" threads, both serious and satirical, more annoying tbh. It was funny once.
