    Why is Sahara still sponsoring? Thought they had a major fallout over payments with the BCCI?

Some seemed to think he should have been attacking from ball one. That's the point of contention
    Nah just that after an over or two at the most (given his first over was taken to) he should have settled in and really tried to use some flight and dip, after all he was bowling with the newish ball (which is good for spinners because you get a mixture of big turn/bounce and slide) rather than simply looking for drift and slid each ball without changing his trajectory. I honestly think throughout his spell this was lacking a bit.

    PEWS is right, this has been blown way out of proportion, not a big difference in opinion but we have struggled to clarify at times, we may have to agree to disagree

    I even made a domestic thread

    Wait, why is this thread stickied? I thought these games didn't have FC status?

    Like that matters

    Samuels would be a really handy wicket for India here, although I dunno if I could handle watching Bravo continue at this rate with Shiv at the other end

    Bring Shami back on.
    This was a serious post:

    I swear Dhoni drops at least one of these sort of catches off the spinners for every one he takes. Happens way too often.
