    hmmm. I didn't think it was possible to make Sachin look worse than my post, but Joni just proved me wrong..



    Looks like its the time of the Virat fans, tbh.






    Just always remember, I was a Virat fan before it became cool. </HBK>
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Where the **** were you HB when the Kohli bandwagon was under attack and everyone wanted him dropped for Rohit, were calling him Lohli, laughing at him dropping catches etc. etc.

    We needed you on the front line and you went missing!

    I should say, I don''t think it is Tendulkar who is harmful for Indian cricket. It is the attitude towards him by team mates, selectors, board, captain, fans, sponsors which are. That is why he comes up with **** like "Cronje is the toughest bowler I faced".. Bollocks, that is just him coming up with a line that would be funny for the papers the next day.. Just appreciate the guy for what he is and see the real positives in him. His enthusiasm for the game, the way he prepares, how he puts doing well in cricket above so many other things in his life, his amazing natural ability to judge the length of a ball so early, his razor sharp mind which works out the strokes and its angles in microseconds, the fact that he is among the greatest batsmen since Bradman, a sharp cricketing mind who is still not tired of thinking cricket when out on the field inspite of 20 years in the game..


    But no, it has to be **** about how he is the best in the world, how he has NO faults and how he has done something good no matter what he does or does not do... It just gets irritating at times. He has a lot of good things about him and a few bad things. If you just learn to treat his pluses and minuses like with any other cricketer, it would be so much better. I already see something similar start to happen with Dhoni.


    The only good thing about all the Tendulkar worship in India is, there is just NOT going to be another Tendulkar. Even if the next guy is actually better than him, no one is going to accept and are still going to sing Tendulkar's praises. The bowling attacks he faced would suddenly become better, the pitches he played would suddenly start becoming seamers and greentops and bunsen turners. God forbid he enters commentary, he will suddenly be better than Richie Benaud after his 5th game.


    Some of the accounts of his 136 against Pakistan must be enough to show what I actually mean here.
    I agree with pretty much all this.

    *pretending the thrashing we were receiving was not true.



    Actually, new role at work and having to follow different timings have put me off a bit.. So I have only checked out the draft thread in the past few days here in CW...



    Plus, with him being the next Ponting, you should always be prepared for such reactions. And as a bit of a Ponting hater at times, I can understand why people will hate Virat.

    You're only allowed on the Virat bandwagon again if you admit that Kohli > Lara.

    Do it!

    I will.. once he leads us to a win in Australia/England.






    It is always worth saying someone is > Lara if it means getting to brag at GIMH and Burgey, tbh.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.
