    I would have too if I hadn't noticed who started it before I clicked on it. Disappointed in myself for thinking it was going to be about Kohli or Tendulkar though; the username said it all.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    My immediate reaction was Kohli as well. Equally ****-ish.

    Must admit, I also thought it was about Kohli.

    This is textbook trolling and its working hook, line and sinker.

    The guy posted a link to an article from January 2010 ffs.

    This is Ian Chappell's article and his title. I think he knows a fair bit about the game compared to us arm chair fans

You can't say the great WI or Australian teams had less skill with the bat or ball than the Indian teams - that's an absolutely ludicrous statement. They had much more skill and they were much fitter.
    I never compared India to the past WI and Aus teams.

    Everyone knows the extent to which they dominated but India dominated too for some time although not to that level.

    Also saying Indian people don't have access to a gym early on hence why lack of emphasis on fitness is rubbish. Once you are cricketer you have the money in India to do what you want-get all sorts of coaches and trainers. It's more a cultural thing then lack of access. Also our players are so talented they haven't really had to work at something so much.

    I still maintain gym fitness is different to match fitness as Gavasker once pointed out too. I would rather have Indian players catching safely and spending many hours in the nets than working directly on fitness. If we had a limited talent pool then the Andy Flower approch would be crucial.

    Did I hide the date? As you can see it's mentioned in the article I quoted so your discovery is not groundbreaking. The point still stands.

    No your point is ****. Sehwag is not Bradman.
