    this would require a seperate thread but anyways entire indian team will qualify for this. specially gangly,tendulkar,dravid(only in ODI format becoz he is natural test player).

    shcewag,laxman,yuvraj can be exceptions only if they do not have chokers on other end.

    Why Ganguly? It can be Indian team as a whole ,( even Pak team whenever they play against Aus).

    I don't think Sachin chokes, howeve i do think Indian pacers do underperform in tight situation

    who the hell are u talking about???the same guy who failed in every single match against india???(including on the indian tour!)
    the only time he has come under any sort of pressure in 4 years and look at him choke!the adam gilchrist i know is the one that comes in with australia at 400/5 trying to accelerate the innings against a worn out and demoralised attack. sure u can bring up his innings against pak but that was 6 years ago and he was very fortunate.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    But who's fault is it for the pressure being created?

    Mills is the only one who can take that, so does he really deserve the credit in all honesty?

    If people performed when their team needed them no-one would ever lose a match.:P
    The fact is any performance is needed by the team, and very rarely are what are normally good performances counter-productive.

    i guess it depends on what you call pressure...to a lot of people coming in at 400/5 maybe a pressure situation(maybe the new ball is due at this pont as well, another type of pressure in its self) where by you are in at a time when batting has been made to look easy,and you dont want to let the good position you are in slip away...400/5 can become 400/6 easily and then all out 450, which these days doesnt always seem to be a winning first innings score.

    To other people, some people might suggest that Gilchist was under pressure in the second test vs Pakistan in Hobart a few years back.....Gilly had just taken over from Healy,and needed to prove himself to the public. He comes in at 120 odd for 5 chasing getting on 370 vs Akram,Waqar,Saqlain and Shoaib...i would say that is pressure big time...he went on to score 149 in 160 odd balls to win the game.

    Then again some may say that there was no pressure coz he had nothing to lose, no-one expected Australia to win from that position anyway.

    I personally thing Gilchrist plays the way he does what ever the situation, and that is what is expected of him, i dont think he is a choker .

    In India i think he had a bad run of form and was up against a pretty hot India team as well

    Gilchrist has played and succeeded under pressure heaps of times. if you base your opinion of gilchrist on 2 series out of the dozens that he has played in it gives you an obviously untrue picture.

    I wasn't being completely serious. He hasn't played much domestic cricket to date.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    OMG! you really are an idiot!!

    I knew some halfwit would bring up this last tour of India without caring to look at some actual facts.

    Gilly usualy fails to capitalize on situations like 5/400 most of the time despite popular opinion. He get's out becuse he has to much of a licence to throw the bat.

    Sorry to be rude but if you are going to make a statment like that without actualy looking at his performances against other countrys then thats what will happen.
