Come on. Sharma is terrible.
Come on. Sharma is terrible.
He has always had a mediocre record in domestic List A and should've probably been dropped from the ODI squad long ago, but he has held his own as an opener when all other Indian batsmen aside from Dhawan have failed (Vijay, Gambhir, Sehwag, Rahane). It's pretty obvious that Rohit isn't that composed and patient when chasing. He's always trying to play a shot that's not there to be played. At least as an opener, he's insulated from some of that pressure.
But it's not his fault if his opportunities are in the wrong format.

I too feel that Rahane perhaps would be a better choice. To be honest, however ludicrous it may sound, I prefer Rohit in the team over both Dhawan and Murali Vijay.
I'd pick both Rohit and Rahane, and just dump Jadeja.

interesting.......Imran writes an article on Sachin's retirement
Sachin Tendulkar's passion set him apart: Imran Khan - The Economic Times
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

Chennai 99 more tragic imo...
Just saw an interview of his with Arnab Goswami from about a year back where he was asked to name a few moments from his career. He named the 96 semifinal, the 2003 final, 2007 world cup, and finally the Chennai test. He seemed almost in tears just talking about it, quite depressing to watch
that Chennai 99 was such an awesome innings..........more painful to him would be the fact that the rest of the tail just folded within 3 runs or so
I am a huge Sachin fan but still have this question. We all know Sachin has a penchant for records though he denies to the outside world that he cares for records. So what if he gets injured in the first test? Will he still retire? Or will he play the SA series to complete 200 tests? Or will BCCI arrange another series at home cancelling the SA series if Sachin recovers soon?
I do believe he will still retire but was just thinking about this hypothetical scenario.
As I have seen, the records he seems to be passionate about are winning trophies, and scoring centuries. Hard to believe he was playing for the 200th test mark this whole time, although stranger things have been done by greater minds.
