    Kyon mazaaq uda rahe ho Tendulker ka :-(

    Had India opted to field at Sydney after winning the toss, kahani ulti hoti.

    Just last year Aussies were shot out at this venue for 98 by England and in Zaher, Umesh & Ishanth India had the ammo to do so.

    Nahi Bournvita don’t take it like that. I know it was in fun.

    Just that I’m unhappy with the way this series is going :cry:

    Till 214/2 in the first innings we were in a wining position, but the thing is the second line are all T20 stars.

    I guess once Tendulker, Dravid and Laxman retire we will be the next West Indies (after their stalwarts retired), outside the sub-continent.

    Tango that was boxing day test in which Aus got out under 100 and not SCG one..

    btw these are all excuses and all.. at this run feast, India played the worst a team could in the first innings

    Ok Phanton thanks for that.

    Actually, it always seams and swings in Sydney on the opening day, after that it eases out more and more. Fielding first was the obvious decision.

    As long as it is ‘let us do something out of the box’, rather than conventional cricket aisa hi hoga. This is test cricket not twenty20.

    with defensive fields u cant win on a track like this, that’s it. dhoni needs to get aggresive. this skipper cool thing wont work overseas

    Chetan Chauhan is saying the same thing, why you chose to bat on a green wicket, especially as Sydney spins on the last day and Australia had no Shane Warne, so why did India bat?

  7. Phantom said:

    see after 5 straight losses no captain would want to bat fourth (also wen u havent crossed 300 in these 10 innings)

    plus India batted fourth at SCG and got out in just 70 odd overs.

      good scorecard

      shows how Sachin has no impact of age..He can score so well even in 2019. A true master batsman

    Phantom I think you are right. Dhoni’s decisions in this series seem to be getting influenced by the loss in the test series against England, but he just seems to end up making even more mistakes. And maybe the gambles are not paying off like they did before. Somewhere the vibe to make a strong effort seems to be missing. I hope complacency has not crept in.

    Fletcher is white wash specialist coach

    Ashes in Australia 2006-2007 5-0

    India in England 2011 4-0

    now India in Australia 2011-2012 4-0 looking likely

    Agree. When you fear to lose you are definatly going to lose. When you are going to draw a match you will lose. Most Imp thing is stay positive. Though it is easier said then done when you were 191 all out and oppostion piled 650 plus. Still Fight to kar sakte the.
