    Wouldn't be against Hildreth playing but he strikes me as a no.4 rather than a 3.

    Plus I think Brumbers was dong a Scaly impression.

    Yeah, know all that, just having a bitter swipe myself.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Would be hilarious if India lose on a pitch that Dhoni finally got to his specification.

    It's not even to his specification though is it? Just happens to be a typical Mumbai wicket I think.

    What's a typical Mumbai wicket like anyways? All I know is that it offers something for the seamers early on and flattens out eventually.

    does anybody else find it funny that Sunny G and Ravi after bagging DRS use the same technology to comment on the umpiring errors.

    Missed the last session but delighted by the score. Another good session in the morning and we will be favourites to win the game, trouble is we know a collapse is just around the corner with our batting line up.

    Just to clarify, the man going back when the team score is around 20 on a bunsen burner is different to dropping a man back after tea when Cook was set. Crikey some people.

    Any news on Pujara yet?

    I don't find it funny at all, I find it pathetically predictable. I'm someone who remembers them playing and they were admirable pros. Now they're just pathetic stooges, with one agenda (the BCCIs) and no sense of irony. The problem is they seem to be giving the worst part of Indian fan-base a platform. Many decent Indian supporters but they get shouted down most places by idjits following these two guys.

    They are to Indian cricket, what Fox News is to the GOP.

    If CW had a "like" feature I'd click it.

    Don't know if any polls were done to ask Indian fans their opinion on the DRS. I'd be surprised if there wasn't broad support for it. Saying that BCCI doing something is representive of the will of most Indian fans is like saying apartheid doing something is representative of most South Africans.

    BCCI and their stooges have nothing to do with any fan base. It's about preservation of power.

    I think this post is quite accurate. Almost everyone I know is in favor of implementing the referral system. To me it seems as straightforward a case as any. Even if the technology has flaws, I am pretty sure the margin of error involved is far lesser than that of the naked eye.

    Even though I disagree with Sunny and BCCI on this issue, scorning somebody's views just because they don't agree with you is valueless. And who is going to define who is 'decent' and who not in a country like India, where people come from such diverse economic, educational, cultural and social backgrounds? I didn't realize the Southern White faction in the US was an idiotic crowd which drowns out the decent voice inside the GOP, but of course they must be, because they disagree on almost everything with everybody else.
