I have given up watching cricket. Yet to recover from CT final. And then the Women's WC :-(

The SL series is predictably boring; I checked out the coverage and I don't think there is enough media interest such that what happens on the field between overs can never be seen!

Of the three-test series, I'm willing to bet India will lose one handsomely just to keep the viewership alive.

India A has won the one day tri series in South Africa. Manish Pandey and the seamers have done well.

Now, I hope that we can do well in the two unofficial tests as well.

This Ind-SL has been such a drab series,by far the most boring in the last decade & to make things worse SL are going to return to tour India in the coming months!
The ODI selection probably created more buzz than the entire test series.

Yes, it was such a one sided affair. Many of the Sri Lankan team members are quite new and not yet conditioned for high profile international matches.

Indian cricket fans are strange animals. Are they typical of Indians in general?

There is indignation at a selector comment that MS Dhoni is not an automatic selection; if he performs he will be selected. What is wrong with that statement - do fans expect players to be selected even if they don't perform? Aren't players well remunerated for past performances to not have a claim for automatic selection in future?

A player has a right to decide when to retire, but he isn't entitled to be selected irrespective of performance till then, surely.
