Well,I don’t know really what to really write here.I cant take it .I mean If you lose from a situation where you have taken the lead in the first innings and cant control the game ,its really nothing less than a shame.What all of us , fans wanted was a draw.WAS that too much to ask ??? Yes ,its easy to ask and blame from here sitting in front of Televisions sets.but what else we could do.They are payed for playing and winning.IT really hurts to see them losing every time they play against the aussies.
Losing a game after restricting australians for 134 -6 in the first two sessions is really ridiculous .Yes there have been some wrong decisions but blaming that for the loss would be even more absurd and senseless ,Some are for us and some are against .We cant just keep on complaining.
Getting a lead in the first innings and losing is even more shocking.Losing this test never came into my mind . Their were neither any devils in the pitch nor the bowlers were so fearsome to grab 10 wickets .Its the fault of indian players and they deserve to be blamed.NO mc grath NO shane warne.NO Gellispee . Still they manage to take 10 wickets on the last day.Thanks to the wrong stratergies that inidans are applying against the australians .I think its really high time for the BCCI to get the coach on his couch 😛 .What the hell is BCCI doing ? why its taking so much time ?? its an enigma??
The mighty indian batting order looks quite lame against the moderate Australian attack. Jaffer’s defense isn’t working he hasn’t scored anything spectacular in the series and now i ain’t expecting much too . Yuvaraj failed yet again without scoring much i guess he is enjoying the limelight he is getting in all those new channels where they are bonding him with deepika padukone .Perhaps ,he forgot for his real touring to australia .Every overseas tour is exposing dhoni that he is incapable in foriegn soil .Yes , he did stick around at the end but what about other 3 innings.There’s seriously something missing in dravid,he doesn’t seem to be the WALL anymore .The only two players who have been consistent are the ones whose retirement was being discussed .Gangully has already slapped all the faces by coming back to the indian team and that too in a grand way.And i have never doubted sachin’s commitment . Batting looks so strong yet so feeble.Whats the problem?? Over Confidence , Attitude and Carelessness??? .May be!!
As far as bowling is considered i dont have much complaints.It was bowling which was considered weak before the tour and i am surprised to see that bowlers have done exceptionally well by bowling them out couple of times.Kumble has been the a great bowler and he is just 2 wickets away from the 600 wickets milestone but he wouldnt be enjoying the captaincy i suppose when none of your teammates are supporting.Of course, if the players are playing what could captain do??
With this win australians have locked the series Not that i am expecting a win the next two matches.I just want to see some fight before they lose .I just see an inevitable white wash ahead and this will be the last time i am writing on this series . I am just tired of ranting and expressing my tantrums here in my blog. It neither helps me not the Team The only good it does it that i am able to get some more hits in my Blog.
HERE’s the full scorecard
INDIA LOSE THE Match
Man of the match : SYMONDS
AUSTRALIA LEAD BY 2-0
India stuck it out and almost pulled off a draw. The only thing that was in our way were the wrong umpiring decisions. Agreed Jaffer is out of form and Yuvraj should not have played in the first place, but to say that the players have themselves to blame is no less absurd.
You don’t get 6 decisions against you in one game too often. To blame the players in such a scenario is plain stupid.
You need to learn to not expect too much from India. Did you forget what happened in the World Cup?
Btw, I’ve shifted my blog. Could you please update your blogroll link? Thanks 🙂
ok they were serious errors..but we cant just go on… but now its over nothing can be done… why does whenever india loses something or the other cover up comes..india have won a few games in the past due to poor umpiring too .alls in the game ..yes umpiring was poor probably icc should do something about it
ok ..i agree ,my mistake 😛
by the way i have the habit of asking for treat for everything good that happens..
so where’s my treat for ur new hsoted blog
What cover up? The only thing being covered up here is the playing ethics of the Australians, Ponting in particular. He doesn’t walk when he has nicked it, appeals for a catch when the ball was grounded and yet has the balls to say “You can’t question my integrity”!
As for India, Kumble needs to take some tough decisions before the next game.
High time Aussies walk the talk. All this talk of integrity and spirit of game but see nothing in action. Look like for them anything goes in name of victory. Cheating and lies are second nature to them. The interesting thing is that In order to avoid being Harbajan’s bunny he sought the help of Racism. The most interesting thing is that the witness consisted of a Liar (Clarke), Racist (Hayden), and a Cheat (Pointing), tried and convicted by a South African (with Aussie ties)… Seems like Johannesburg – 1960.
lets not talk about aussies ..they have always been a bunch arrogant
players…i am just saying india could have played better..
i have never liked the attittude of australian players/.specially ponting and symonds..
i thought that only ish had changed my link! 🙂 Thanks for being prompt.
Treat? 😛 Aren’t your eyes being treated to my white theme??
i thought i was the first one 🙂 .. anyway ISH always wins 🙂 ..
fine..i will take that as a treat… happy 🙂
Australia or specifically Ricky ponting wanted to break the steve waugh record of 16 test wins in a row.now they have equalled the record. To do this they must have been so desperate. The umpires must have got the bribes of their life time. The desperation shows in all those fake appeals even when they know that the whole world will see their bluff. Ricky ponting, the guy who claims to be the angel is actually a pathetic fraud who lost the spirit of the game some where along the line. Now they will do the same thing in next match also if they want to break the record. All this shows how scared the aussies are of Indian team. The mighty aussies are from now on a team of cowards and frauds.
A team of monkeys and half breed prisoners.
Okies.. I can c tht u r upset just like a million other Indians are and I pretty much second Lazybug’s opinion. This has not been the first instance of bad umpiring against India in Australia. I still remember a silly HEAD-BEFORE-WICKET that Sachin got off McGrath in 1999. We need to stage a strong case against poor umpiring.
thanks for your comments..perhaps you would check out my second post..thats is what i really feel..this post was just written to shed out my rants and anger 😛
By wanting a draw, you aint asking for too much. Agreed!
But with 8 decisions against the Indians, asking for a draw, I feel is a bit too much!
Thank you for the comments on my blog Arvind. Keep up the good work.
may be 🙂
you are welcome..its alwasy nice to take part in heated discussons 😛
this is very nice place for everyone
