Its amazing to watch Sehwag go after the bowlers. Except of Vettori,everyone else took a beating with more than 8.50 rpo.
And with minimal foot work,he makes the sixes look so easy to get!

Rohit Sharma was the architect of India's loss, feels Crowe

Quote:
Rohit, who was drafted in the playing eleven in place of Sachin Tendulkar, came in at a time when opener Virender Sehwag was going great guns but Crowe pointed out that the Mumbaikar frustrated the Delhi dasher by not rotating the strike which ultimately led to Sehwag's downfall.
Quote:
"Ten balls he faced in a row and denied Virender Sehwag. As soon as Sehwag got the strike, he gave his wicket away. From there India just looked to be all at sea. While Rohit Sharma tried very hard, he has got technically some very serious flaws with his head position. And he does not look to be really good enough to be at this level"
Quote:
"As it showed with his running between the wickets and just generally while Rohit Sharma was at the crease India were always going to struggle.
Quote:
"And I felt that Dhoni by promoting Rohit was just giving the youngster a chance, but it's cost him the game. Not that it is anything drastic because it was a dead rubber. But that's the true summary of the match, it was lost with Rohit's promotion,"

Well my favourite Rohit Sharma is in news again.
Will Selectors sit up and axe him now and give chances to people like badrinath etc is the q to be answered!

I guess Virat Kohli will be recalled. He has been in awesome form off late in the domestic circuit.

Having personally spoken and interacted with him, he needs a serious lesson in humility and proper attitude.

He already thinks he is a star. No doubt a good player but attitude wise is found lacking.

Saw this guy in a show in Start Cricket where the host spent one day with this guy and even I felt something similar ..... Think this guy needs to learn a bit from Dravid and Kumble regarding modesty during forthcoming IPL ....

News for today

IPL is postponed again ........

Ahhhh okay...

I was once shopping in a mall in Rajouri Garden in Delhi when I saw a dude. Although he did nothing out of the ordinary, I just got a feeling that he was oozing attitude. It was just after India had won the under19 world cup under his captaincy and it was only after a couple of minutes that I could recognize Virat Kohli. I somehow got the feeling that he would not be one of the humble ones.

Neverthless, the guy is in some fantastic form.

+1 to that. I was just gonna type it when i read you mentioning about it.
Virat needs to keep a cool head, quite talented lad - but he thinks he is bigger
than what he is today.

Everyone is in fantastic form when they play domestic. Moment international happens they just dont remember how to hold bat or ball.

I think Yuvi will play and also instead of Miushra balaji may get a look in considering NZ pitches dont assist spinners much.
Rest all are fine i guess.

And that's probably why he never got to be Captain... Look at Dhoni instead.

No way are two spinners playing, man. Neither are 5 bowlers. So Yuvraj might get a look-in.
