Dravid hopeful of a comeback

"There was also speculation that Dravid had wanted to resign after his side's string of failures, but official confirmation was lacking."

He also praised Sourav Ganguly's bowling in the middle overs. "His bowling was highly effective as he bowled close to wicket."

Both are crappy players in this format and praising each other I guess.

Ganguly bowled when Dravid was at the crease. His figures read 3 overs, 7 runs and 1 wicket

Michael Clarke pulls out of the Aussie tour of WI. So Brad Hodge is his replacement. He will fly out to WI leaving the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Hard Luck !!!

Unhappy

Karnataka State has a decent cricket team - be it a test or ODI or T20, they can at least finish among Top 5 in the country. That means they are capable players in the team.

Shane Warne moulded a group of inexperienced players into Points-Table toppers. But the leadership of RCB turned a bunch of capable players into a timid outfit

At this point of time, RCB dressing room must be a very sad place. Everybody knows whose stupid ideologies resulted in their CEO being sacked and the current position they are in

Laxman seem to have got the message. Maybe he is a quick learner - because Gilchrist was at the toss .

Shane Warne has won the toss and Rajasthan are bowling.

Meanwhile,
Sudhir Nanavati, the BCCI-appointed commissioner, has completed his probe into the incident involving Sreesanth and Harbhajan Singh (Slap Gate). He will submit the report on Monday.

Here, all parties pose for camera:

Hehe - And I hope he has aged or is he 19 still ??

I also read his views that he finds the cheer leader girls distracting. That could be a reason too for his failure - trying to hit every ball towards them

I guess he's the only player who made a big hue & cry about the cheerleaders. Moron!

Chargers put up 140!. Lets see how Warne & his team fight back.

Well can u temme who doesnt get distracted by them. Coming Back to the match Deccan has made quite mess out of the opening stand. Royals need o chase 141. Smith & Yusuf will be the key if Royals have to chase down.

CRICKETNDTV.com: Cheerleaders are distracting: Afridi

"The girls in skimpy dresses should be removed from the ground as this is distracting the batsman".
