Son is better than Father...

shared by straight point on Thursday, January 24, 2008

is all i can say at this moment...

if only sachin would have listened to his son's advice seriously in 2007...but better sense prevailed in 2008 and he was out from that '90s zone' in two strokes...

he has around 40% stake in the total goes to show his dominance today...

india will be heaving a sigh of relief...coming from dooming 4/156 to 5 /300 odd...i am saying it particularly coz india have this habit of following great win with very ordinary performance on the field...recent SA tour is the case in point...

if only laxman played that pull shot...

and what has happened to aussies...its seems that as if they are behind in this series...

first gilly caught sleeping...and then gilly snorting had its effects on hayden...its to their credit that they still managed a smile...

ricky will be tearing his every disappearing hairs...

sehwag out on no ball goes to shows the consistently pedestrian umpiring in this series where they cant even pick the no balls...the very basic of umpiring!!

dhoni seems to have taken the form of dravid very seriously...i wonder if he is already eying that slot...he seems to go nowhere and should buy a drink to haydy for being there at this difficult time...coz otherwise india would have been in very precarious position...

its not that we are out of jail now...a fine spell tomorrow from lee & co. can be the difference between 330-340s score and 400+

...special mention of Lee...

no words can be enough to describe the transformation of this guy....Lee....

from going for bowlers infamous double hundred in last oz series to spear heading the attack relentlessly in this series...without even compromising on pace...is nothing short of remarkable...how silently but assuringly he has slipped in this role...is tribute to his mental toughness as well his physical fitness...his efforts with the ball deserves all credit and praise...

i would go on to say that Lee is the difference between aussie and indian team in this series...and i am not exaggerating...

You are right. Dhoni seems to be afflicted by the Dravid disease.

I think Dhoni is doing an okay job. What is he supposed to do when he comes in with 30 mins of play left?
He obviously follows the mantra of less shots=less risk, so he is thinking of a minimum risk game at the moment. If he gets his eye in tomorrow morning also, the strike rate will double, triple in no time.

after this series, OTT, some one have to sit with dhoni and ask him some tough questions regarding how he wants to shape his test career...

john

is OK job is enogh??? should we expect only this much from him??? are some questions??

and don't forget that if the sitter was not grounded which you don't expect even from club level team...his approach would have been question even more...

thats why i sad he ought to buy a drink to hardy for saving him from lots of uneasy questions...

Been saying this for a long time that Lee is the best bowler in the world today... simply remarkable and hsi fitness levels are somewhere. On the dropped catches, Ian Chappell had a beautiful explanation on it, which I felt was a good observation.
