    FFS, Shastri talking about revenge. Thankfully Dhoni didn't buy it.

    On an a stage something like 5 tests each in their careers !

    Add Buuwaneshwar and Kohli and the contributions of the seniors, Sachin, Sehwag, Ishant pale into insignificance. That augers well for India although more trying. Onditions and alien lands will be the true test.

    Exciting g times anyway

    Think Dhoni needs a fair whack if credit for his ton in Chennai. Was an even game at that point. He set the tone for the series really.

    Im asking because my twitter feed assures me that despite defeat in India AUS will do well in England regardless of home team being favourites. But I quite cant see Clarke & The Gang doing well anywhere and I want to see proper hard fought Ashes!

    As abject as Aus has been one has to give credit to young Indian players like Jadeja,Ahswin,Pujara and Vijay especally. No matter how poor the opposition is playing its never easy to dominate at international level so early in to your careers. The worst thing about this Aus side has been lack of fight no matter how ordinary an Aus team would be one thing is certain they never cave in without a fight. The way Aus has went about in this series reminds me of sub cont sides go whne they travel to SA, Aus and England.

    Yes he is the only senior who goes ahead into the years to come. I guess Sachin would be needed in the demanding away tours ahead but he is clearly past his best and one hopes for his sake that he manages to leave on a positive note. He has earned it and should not let anything spoil that.

    India has to learn to play without him irrespective of conditions and it does not look great with so many youngsters out performing him in a home series against a modest attack. It is possible and quite probable that some of the youngster will be exposed in South Africa but it will be much worse if Sachin looks a ghost . . .

    One hopes it works out well for him. No one wants him to leave the game feeling miserable

    their fast bowlers if they can get the good ones on the park will keep the opposition from running away with huge scores but if Clarke looses form then they would struggle to get 200 consistently.

    Can't believe how much people were crapping themselves over India when the worst the equation got down to was 17 off 4 overs.

    I mean wtf? It's a given.

    Dhoni hinted at some changes for the last Test match to try some new things - as this is the last match before the SA series. What do you guys think it could be?

    Maybe give Rahane a game and give Tendulkar a rest? Or maybe Dhoni himself will take a game off. Try a new quick that'll surely be needed in SA? I doubt they'd dump Ishant because unfortunately - in SA - who else do they have? Kumar will definitely play. Dinda gets a game somehow - maybe by playing one less spinner? Umesh Yadav and Zaheer might be fit for SA (though Zaheer being fit is an over by over thing at this point, so can't count on that). Yadav, Ishant and Kumar as the pacers in SA?

    My ****ing God. Just read this thread.

    The negative bull**** posting by the Indian fans today was utterly pathetic. Dead set. ****ing take a good hard look at yourselves.

    Australia are 9 down, India have gotten 5 wickets in the first session, and some bloke whinges about how India can't even get the tailenders out... when they've dismissed all of the top order and Lyon and Siddle as well.

    And then these ****s crying at Dhoni (who I am hardly a massive fan of) when the win really was never in doubt once India didn't lose 2 quick wickets in the first few overs.

    **** to read that crap.

    India should not have won this test match. You don't win a test match when the first day is washed out and then the opposition score 400+ in their first dig. Yet India did. And you blokes are cracking the ****s. Would be annoying to read for Australian fans, who have legitimate beef with the way their team has performed.

    Haha, I stopped posting in this thread just before Haddin got out and I've considered reading back. Still don't know whether I should.
