now that badri is back...

shared by straight point on Thursday, June 18, 2009

i hope he is given enough chances this time...and more importantly not get treated the way dhoni treated him in last ipl...

i have become stale after seeing lots of flexibility of late......in west indies...hope to see some much needed stability...in thoughts as well as batting order...

not much hopes of that, Straight Point. Dhoni does what he does. he is going to prove apoint in WI that his unstable thinking works...Krish Srikkanth made a mistake by selecting Badri here. Badri should have been tried out in tests. By setting him up for failure here in ODIs, I guess Badris intl career will be over by the time he boards the flight back to India...

raj...odis have always been stepping stone to knock test doors...its always good to let player feel the atmosphere...dressing room...team strategies...etc before donning the ultimate cap i.e. tests...

provided dhoni uses him properly...

don't be so pessimistic about the lad...give him some space... :)

alright, finally Badri gets a call up.
But this series should not be his one and only chance. He should be given as many chances as the rainas and yuvis have ben given over the years.
Now, how's che's knee?

prafs...the quality player with solid foundation he is i am sure he can cope with success and failures alike...

about che i too surfed to get latest info on him but could not find anything...i hope he gets well soon...before everybody forget him...

I think Dhoni got done in by the Warne hype - but India is not RR.

And I just hope he does not do another ad with that Basu girl. Ughh.

welcome naresh...

that's a good observation about rr...i think they are all sucked into it thinking that flexibility is just changing batting orders...

though i don't mind his off field activities if he gets his on field acts right... :)

This has been a raging debate for some time. Why can't Dhoni end everyone's misery by giving that guy a proper chance and then maybe even pray that he fails and throw him out.

Right now for the second year running, badri has been put in as a teaser cock.

i sincerely hope and wish that this time (provided he playes) he shut the mouths of non-believers for once and all...
