Are you even going to attempt to compare what Australia lost to injury with what India did? Getting absurd.Originally posted by Pratyush
I find every statement illogical.
Austraila competed well in India which is commedable. So is India with a second string bowling attack.
Subcontinent is the reso half the cricket rules exits? Ahem.
Keep living in the paradise of your own man.
Regarding if rain hadnt interferred, India would have lost the test series, I would only say it was Waugh who was happier than Ganguly when the series ended in a draw.
Ganguly does go down your skin, doesnt he? Ganguly manipualted games .. right. Steve Waugh didnt do any thing in 1999 to have run rates in his favour. I support the move of Waugh but how are two different when both were not in the spirit of the game?
Just look at cricket outside Australia for a moment.
And comparing Waugh to Ganguly? Straw clutching, I didn't care what Ganguly did, until he started calling national conferences before each and every ball, it was just boring. It is unsportsman-like I guess, but who cares in that regard, Australia will win regardless of how many comittee calls he makes, it just slows the game down and makes it tiresome to watch, which is my only real concern.
And Waugh was happier than Ganguly the series ended? He had 700 runs scored against him in the first innings of a test match and still came out on the final day with intentions of winning, unlike Ganguly Waugh is a true competitor. He'd have taken any competition any way it came. Ganguly? Well apart from playing a match with our second string side with all intention of drawing, and taking every possible opportunity to avoid losing at the cost of giving his side a chance to win, what else could he do to prove he's the fearless captain they make him out to be?
