Nothing wrong in the decission if you see the reason refree gave!Its Hashima and not Nel..a sign of relief atleat for us as shree has not been penalised for WRONG(Nel)reason.Goro ki na kalo ki,ye duniya he sirf ICC walon ki !Absolutely rubish decission imo.

Sumanji I know and same I wrote (into bracket) that refree did the right job to panish him for Hashima and not for Nel(Aab aayi baat samaj me?!).Hope you got me this time.

One test later, I was right about VRV Singh. But maybe I was too harsh on Jaffer. He does have technical shortcomings, but compared to some of our seniors like Sehwag, Jaffer did OK to at least get into the twenties in the second Test. I think it is Sehwag's head which will be on the block if he flops in the third Test. Eventually the likes of Yuvraj, Kaif and Pathan will have to get into this team at the expense of some of the seniors.

Sad that we caved in so pathetically in the second Test. A few more overs and bad light would have saved us. As I write, India are off to a decent start in the third Test, for the first time in this series (50+ for no loss). But we are really a bowler short against the South Africans on an apparently good batting pitch.

As per Cricinfo (and Ravi Shastri), the pitch is more Indian than South African. This is a HUGE deal in my opinion - SA not building the pitch to their "strength"

-Amen

The mess up in today's cricket match is entirely due to one man-Sachin tendulkar,before he arrived we were looking quite comfortable[after the initial fall of wickets],but once he arrived the runs just dried up.
This is the difference between the overly hyped sachin and lara or pointing.When they are at the crease even if they are carrying an injury you can be rest assured that scoring rate will not drop wheras sachin just created more pressure for the team.

In test cricket, Sachin might be a great batsman but definitely not a valuable player. How many times did Sachin take India to safety with his batting skills?

Tomorrow get your bottles ready to celebrate Indian Victory...........


reason????????????????

Only one thing I have spotted and that is.............,,,,,,,,,,,,,


Kumble's lost flipper is working again,yes he lost it and when he tried this ball in recent matches he used to ball it out side the leg stump but in this test I saw him dead on spot with this flipper(top spiner),if he gets this going again tomorrow god saves SA,I bet for India which I normally don't do lately.Other bowlers just need to apply and ball wood to wood which is grounded just in front of w.c,wish me a good luck though I doubt I may not need it if above thing happens tomorrow.

All the best - Good Luck. The game of musical chairs is going to begin for the next series.

I am sure if Sourav was the Captain, we could have won the SA Test Series with ease!
That guy (Mr.Dravid) has no skills of a Captain, he is just good as a Test batsman! Nothing more!
