    Who cares?

    Australia just outplayed South Africa 2 games to 1. South Africa still won the series.

    For me, before the England series, too many people seemed to forget that about South Africa. The way people talked you would have thought they'd beaten India, Australia and England at home, instead of simply playing well with the odd bad test costing them a series win.

    There's a big mental factor in cricket, and that can often be the difference between the opposition surviving 9 down and you winning the game.

    obviously it is 1-1.
    I was just comparing their performance to Ind in SA.


    **** dhoni
    Dhoni should've been sacked right then from test captaincy.
    I recall quite a few saying at the time that they would never forgive dhoni for costing the series.

    Well then why not get into petty things like the fact that South Africa hammered India in their test win while India's win was a much closer test match? Because it's the result that matters.

    india went into the test series (1st test) with no practice whatsoever and without zaheer khan. hence the huge margin.

    yes i get what you are saying. it's the final result that counts not how well you do.

    Yeah they can all bat can't they - and the pitch doesn't really have any demons (yet) - I'd expect them to get around 270-280. Not enough to force a win though.

    270-280?

    being too pessimistic

    my prediction-

    fall of wickets-

    120/5
    160/6
    170/7
    210/8
    225/9
    230/10

    I hope they don't bat slow.

I haven't seen anything at this, the ultimate level of the game, in which the entire skill set and mental approach are tested to the utmost, to suggest he's anything special.
    Lol, yeah Kohli is definitely at fault.

    I mean he was absolutely awful in that 4-0 loss to England, where he didn't play a test.

    Also awful in the 4-0 loss to Australia where he was India's best batsman.

    He has had an awful England series, but you persist with youth. You don't drop them after 12 months, especially when they have 2 centuries to their name in that year.

    More than anything else, its the fact that tendulkar no longer seems to know when to come forward and when to go back. Just seems to have totally lost his judgement of length

    at least these two trying to grind it out
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
