Why not averages:

Laxman - 95.25
Gambhir - 77
Sachin - 57

But numbers never tell the real picture.

They don't deserve any charity. Their attitude(on and off field) is that of losers which has now led them to being losers in the final result as well!

I hope this losing streak of theirs goes on for a long time.

I am not supporting whatever Hayden said, but, are we under the impression that we are a developed country? I do not think that we are a developed country yet. There is still a long way to go for us.

But, kudos to India for showing the Aussies what we are in cricket. The best team has won fair and square.

In another interview, our Bhajji has mentioned that we were busy preparing for matches while the Aussies were busy writing books and playing "mind games". Do whatever you want, there is no substitute for old fashioned hard work.

He can't bark, he only whines & occasionally bleats a-la Goat style

Yeah we are a 3rd world country, With billion people all playing cricket, with richest cricket board without whom ICC also cant blink, with aN international team which has just beaten Aussies themselves, With IPL and ICL - 2 of the most famous competitions in world cricket, With not great players but legends within the team all the time. Maybe Hayden wanted to say we cant write illogical books like gilchrist and Ponting have written
Makes me wonder will he come in april and play in the IPL which is sadly again in the 3rd world country

PS: Aussie cricketers are like Jeremy Clarkson. You dont ever take them too seriously. If you do, you are the one who will have sleepless nights, not them!

Totally agree. Take Mr. Loud Mouth's comments with a pinch of salt and move on. No point discussing it.

Hayden calls India 3rd world? Well cmon you guys he basically comes from a land where all thugs and thieves were sent. What else do you expect from him?

His country of goons was built with our wealth!

India vs England? 5-2 to India I believe. Although I pray I am proven wrong and its more wins for India!

Yuvi and Raina at the crease now.

Yuvi went berserk, what an innings from him. Man he really seems to love the England bowling off late. Hope he is completely fit for the next one day.

Hey MODS since we just finished a very interesting test series with the Aussies and now this One day and then the 20-20 world championship coming up, can we have a poll on whos for T20/ 50-50/ or tests please. (hope this doesnt exist from before)
