We will win by 174 runs.

Buddy, your predictions are all topsy turvy and upside down now that the Indian innings have started.
Sehwag has scored half a hundred instead of a double hundred.

All right. All right. I was wrong about Sehwag. Gambhir scores a double ton then. I still will maintain- Harbhajan claiming a hat trick.

Cheers

Yes, Bhajji is going to take 3 wickets in 3 test matches! Hat trick indeed!

Anyone else agrees that we need to give the Pujara guy a chance somehow. Young run machine and an appetite for BIG scores !

Maybe in the squad instead of Badri and plays if someone gets injured ?

Pujara has been doing well but between him and Badrinath, I feel Badrinath is the better choice.

Badri is older but still young enough to be a reasonably long term prospect. Plus his fielding is exceptional enough to make a difference.

Hmmmm. I may be wrong, but I think Pujara is a prodigy kind of a player. And such a player should be played at an early stage and when he is in form, like he is.

And how many prodigies had we seen off late?

Btw i stand match will be a draw and The wall got a rough decision!

Something like this was being said about someone in 1989. Would be good if Pujara comes up similarly.

You are right, but that doesn't mean we stop looking for another one ! Sachin, Dravid and VVS will go out in the same fashion as Gilly, Hayden and Langer did for Australia. And our bench is not even half as strong !

Since we are on predictions, take a look at this article that I came across recently. Written in November 1991.

Peter Roebuck may not have reached international class as a player but he seems to have been a great judge of form.

Magnificent seven: class of '91 graduated with honours - Cricket - Sport

You are right Eddy and i agree with you.
Rohit Sharma is one guy i believe has the talent to play and excel in all current forms of cricket but his attitude and temparament had been a big let down. I still believe if someone can get that sorted in him he is the one who can fill a big spot in indian cricket.

Yuvi..? Prodigy..? going out with girls and disobeying security regulations perhaps.

For God's sake, please, Yuvi is a good enough one day player, a far cry from that in tests. I wouldn't bother speaking of Sachin and Yuvi in the same breath.

BTW, where is Mohd. Kaif these days?

Prasad

PS. If Afridi can be rated as a prodigy, anyone else can. BTW, how old is he now? 15?
