A mystery to you perhaps. Or maybe you don't read the domestic stats. Do read them. Will improve your GK. That way, the manure content may go down.

Had suitcases or activities done the trick, wouldn't it have happened much before? Like before he was dropped for example?

Remember the SA series?

The young blood fizzled out there too, Vengy had to send Sourav on the first available flight to rescue Team India!

Sachin, who else. Our fellow member first said -

Of the oldies, Sachin deserves his place in the team in Tests, ODIs & even T20. Not because he is a match winner, but he is a useful contributor to the team.
Then he said -
Quote:
lack of concentration or may be he is missing his age-mates . The team cannot afford a free rider for long.
Then he talks about warming his backside etc etc.....all in a span of a couple of hours.

As I said, why pay for the movie (Dr Jekyll & Mr Hide) when you can watch it here for free

Point 1: Sachin deserve a place a in Indian cricket team.
Point 2: If Sachin doesn't perform in the series, he will risk losing his place to Sehwag.

Pretty straight arguments - no confusion.

1. Why does he deserve a place? To increase his records and get a knighthood?

2. Is Sehwag playing as his earlier days? I'am still finding the answer to it.

Ya, right. He will lose his place to Sehwag. Ya, right

When the rest of the world asks you why Sachin was not dropped since he is an "oldie", you talk about his performance & contribution. In the next breath, you talk about him being a free rider. Then you talk about him being an "oldie" warming his rear on the bench with no contribution.

Need I say more?

Still good with bat, useful bowler & a good fielder with strong arm. He seem to have overcome his elbow problem.

Yes. His arrival in the team rejuvenated the team and they won the Perth test. He is deadly in ODIs and he is one batsman the opposition lose their sleep.

Tough for India as they need to keep wickets as well score runs (5 per over). Hope they dont lose any wickets and score around 3-4 per over for the next 8-10 overs to take it for the last 5-7 overs

Malinga with 3 overs seems to be the only threat now. Provided we can see off one Murali over

Dhoni 37 without a boundary. If he can play like this as well as retain his ability to hit big, which he hasn't done lately, he will really be an asset to the team.
