No buddy, BCCI have let ICC and Cricket Australia save their faces. There is already a big hue and cry about BCCI flexing it's financial muscle and dropping of all charges will have meant complete capitulation of ICC to BCCI.

Even now, BCCI have got almost all its demands - Bucknow was removed from Perth test, Bhajji won't be banned. So its a win in all senses and BCCI now officially holds the postition in world cricket earlier held by Australia and England (their veto power days).

Can't believe sachin was declared the MOM... this is gross.

Really sad to see Gilchrist go.... he was a great player and an even better human being, a rare combination in competitive cricket of today.
Even Dhoni is not performing now a days. Do you want to drop him to err..from capitancy...

Well everybody knew he wont do well in Australia given he is a forceful player rather than a technical one. Do we have a better wicket keeper batsman than dhoni in one dayers? The answer is NO, so he cant be dropped.

It was a close call but to say that Sachin did not deserve it is a little incompetent remark. I personally believe that in these kinds of matches it is most difficult to give a MoM award. It should have been shared in my opinion as there were so many good performances.
You forgot sehwag's 60 and a couple of crucial wickets the first innings when our so called best off spinner wasnt able to make any impression on the batsmen whatsoever. Take out sehwag's score from the first inning and I am 100% sure we would have lost the match.

Kathik can bat and keep and even field too. Too much hype is being given to Dhoni for no reason. Chalo Maana ki he has led our team in T20 wcup but it should mek him cement his place for ever in the side.

On a lighter note, TOI suggests that Harbhajan didn't say Monkey to Symonds, but it was 'Maa ki'

'Maa ki' or 'Monkey'-India-The Times of India

Anyone buying this argument?

Was surprised when I came to know that MoM was Sachin. My option would be Shewag with eyes closed.

He gave us a wonderful start in first innings@ 3.5+ runs per over. That removed lot of pressure and he removed Ricky. Shewag's second innings was a beauty, otherwise Iam sure we would have done a marching

It has to be for Shewag.

Dhoni and Kartik ?? Thats all ??

I feel Parthiv Patel should be in now - with the kind of awesome form he is in at the moment. If Uttappa and Rohit can get in without doing much in the domestic season - PArthiv should walk in eyes closed.

But his only fault is - he is a wicket keeper.

Would be good to see Parthiv get a chance somewhere. The guy's good,no doubt.But again,too many people fighting to get on the team..

Na not interested to see parthiv in the team. It was not until Dhoni and Kartik entered the team that the void formed after the exit of nayan mongia was filled. Parthiv played in quite a few matches but was not upto the mark. We dont need someone who is average.

By the way CA had to atlast bend backwards huh!!! Great play and the way Cnn IBn explained stuff it was fun. And "teri m@@" was actually the word which was used by bhajji lol!

Even Sachin expalined that what Bhajji said was Maa Ki.........sheer madness man. Imagine explaining Maa Ki to the goras...... Ha ha. I am sure sachin must have ahad a good laugh.

Judge: What did he say?
Sachin: Teri Maa Ki...(has a wry smile)
Judge: What does that mean?
Sachin: Abey Teri Maa Ki.......(Bhajji is rolling on the floor by now)
Judge: I am sorry Sachin but i am not able to understand what that means.
Sachin: Abe Teri Maa Ki saale....teri maa ki....
Judge: Harbhajan could you stop rolling around on the ground please.
Harbahajan: Sir, I am extremely sorry but Teri Maa Ki.......(again starts rolling on the floor)
Judge(Now getting upset): Sachin and Harbhajan please explain to me. Ponting can yo utry and ask them?
Ponting: Sachin?
Sachin: Teri Maa Ki Ponting.........ha ha ha ha
Sachin: sorry guys,could not control that, Teri Maa Ki means your mother as in your mother is......sorry i cant say that but its a bad word.
Judge: Ok then we reduce the sentence and take away 50% of Harbhajan's match fees.

Sachin to Bhajji:(Coming Out) Arre yaar, i have never laughed so much in my life i will pay you for what you lost, mujhe MOM mein bahot paiasa milla hai. Thanks yaar.

Sachin and Bhajji: ha ha ha ha ha ha
