what badrinath needs to do...dhoni...?

shared by straight point on Thursday, July 02, 2009

you have been openly coming in support of the fact that a player should be given reasonable amount of games to see what he is made of and what he can do for a team...

no problem with it at all...

but tell me what badrinath needs to do to actually appear in final xi...?

...and what else rohit needs to do to be out of it...?

Badrinath needs to go to the place he shares his name with and establish an MSD temple there and spent the rest of his life worshipping him.

hahaha...even that won't do som... :)

its seems badri must have done something terrible while he played those 3 odis under his captaincy...to get the kind of treatment he is getting from him...

raj said...

SP, Badri must have pissed MSD off badly in Chennai Super Kings. Maybe, he spoke in Tamil or something to Vijay when MSD was around?

straight point said...

but does dhoni understands tamil raj...?

raj said...

SP. I am saying that Dhoni might have been offended by the tamil.
Remember Sachin enforcing Hindi only in the dresing room - basically, the gazillion Karnataka men in the team gossiping in Kannada and frustrating the other guys around as to what they are speaking about was the reason for that

As such, speaking in anything other than Hindi when hindi speaking guys are around is a punishable offence as per IPC, right?

straight point said...

oh..i thought in otherway...

hmmm...its definitely is some case...

(much like that famous incidence when murli excessively celebrated after dismissing ganguly in domestic game only to irk him forever...)

Sam said...

May be get a recommendation letter from Rajni or Kamal Hasan or ask CM to speak to Dhoni for a quota in the team. A TN man for a TN man.

or may be just give up ambition to play cricket given his failures to raise the excitement in the cricket circles over his so called talent.

Surely SP, something is wrong here. This is a batsman known as the most accomplished outside the Big 5 in tests, with FC and List A records to show for.

Your batting lacks the technique and is riding piggyback on Yuvraj. So what do you do? Persist with it.

A fair run must be given to Badri if he is to become India's Michael Hussey. He has at least 5 years of cricket left. Unfortunately Dhoni is doing his best to finish him.

Like VVS who was ignored unjustly for a place in the ODI's India is losing another quality player.

Raj - Does it mean that the cloak and dagger days of the '80s are back. Lot of good work undone here.

Sam - I only hope you said this in jest. So called talent? Not too sure if that is the right expression - consistenly appearing in the top 5 run scorers since 2005, hundreds for India A, FC average in high fifties and enough enterprise to play matchwinning knocks in T20 - how many names can you come up with in the present team?

straight point said...

sam...if there is even quota is there that is in the current team...

look at certain set of players repeatedly given chances despite their failures of refusal to raise their game...while players like badri...dinesh karthik, mishra have to live sward hanging on their neck whenever they play...

straight point said...

LI...i agree with you on all counts but one...

badri...india's micheal hussy...???!!!

till now i was thinking that he is dravid v 2.0... :)

Late Inswing said...

Dravid V 2.0 - would settle for a beta version of that ;-)

M Hussey - because of the 'late bloomer' thing.

straight point said...

ahaannn...that's fair LI...

but it means you still think badri playing is still possible under dhoni... ;-))

Prabu said...

LateInSwing,

Please ignore anything Sam says. He is a joker and has no sense of cricketing history. He hates players from TN and to show how much he knew about TN he has recalled in his posts how bad the performances of "TN legends" such as B. Chandra and E. Prasanna were.

Even today RG Sharma has been persisted with whileBadri hasn't been picked. Don't know what to say...

Sam said...

SP, badri as next Dravid ? We thought its CP who takes his mantle :(

Late Inswing said...

Prabu - I could sense as much from some of Sam's posts although I cannot understand what riles Sam so much.

I too noticed Rohit stays and Nair is in for YP. Now folks - is MSD finishing Badri or Rohit?

straight point said...

sam...only when i see CP batting long enough... :)

straight point said...

thats a deadly question Late...

u have made me thinking...need another post i think to carry this debate...

straight point said...

prabhu

i have nothing against abhishek who got picked yesterday...but my heart really want to yell and ask is there any hierarchical structure or selection procedure in our team...?

Christopher Poshin David said...

Sometimes I just dont get Dhoni

straight point said...
