FUTURE OF DAY & NIGHT TEST MATCHES

RAHUL DRAVID  ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED PLAYERS IN CRICKET

RAHUL DRAVID ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED PLAYERS IN CRICKET

 

 

 

RAHUL DRAVID   has talked about Day and Night Test Matches, he is not the first one to talk about it, there are others too like us fans, bloggers, supporters and Dravid has spread the word at the right forum i.e., when he was giving a 40 minute long speech in Canberra Australia and emphasized the need of saving the test matches (not drawing a test match – which is a Mishap) from the disappearing interest of general public because they appear to be dull, boring and end up without any result. He asked the administrators to retain the public interest and respect the fans, and they must try to handle the trickiest of the challenges in balancing the three formats in cricket.  And he described test matches as  “The Gold Standard.”

He also said,  “Everything that has given cricket its power and influence in the world of sports has started from that fan in the stadium.”  Dravid also asked the players to “re-think about the fans when they play the game, in terms of conduct, intensity and integrity.   “They [the fans] deserve our respect and let us not take them for granted. Disrespecting fans is disrespecting the game. The fans have stood by our game through everything. When we play, we need to think of them.  As players, the balance between competitiveness and fairness can be tough but it must be found.”

People have also talked about 4 day test match. There must be flexibility and adaptability in the game, over the years many rules have been changed, technology stepped in and 7~10 days test matches have been reduced to five days test match which is still continuing.  ODI’s and T20 has kicked in to keep the interest of the fans and viewers. So, why not make further changes in the test cricket?  We have talked about pink colour cricket balls a long time ago on cricinfo PakSpin blog and were ridiculed by a few narrow minded blokes. 

We also talked about making cricket grounds a little more different from the typical galleries and pavilions by landscaping the grounds in such a way that at least one one side a big hotel is constructed and the backyard leads to the cricket ground (like a golf-course) where the club house is a part of the golf-course from where you can see the players Teeing off. In this case it should be more like a resort where people retreat and lounge around and also watch live cricket. There should also be swimming pools in hot countries.  And, we have seen in the Caribbean they made above ground swimming pools which were temporary, even that would do if it is a part of the entertainment for the shorter version of the game.   We have not only heard about the introduction of pink coloured cricket balls for night cricket but, Pakistan is actually going to use it in the domestic tournament (Qaid-e-Azam trophy) within this month.

Dravid has covered a lot of points in his speech and I must say that he has raised his voice at the right time to save the test cricket which is plagued with cancer and it is on the verge of dying. And it will die soon if the intention of the players or teams is only to draw a test match. So far cricket is alive because of the variations and changes that have been made by introducing ODI’s and T20’s and test matches are losing its charm in the eyes of the general public. Where will they go from here? Hong  Kong sixes? That is a joke about cricket and a bad one too.

    Ref. your comment no. 539 in the previous thread and I am answering it here.

    This is not a blog but, a school. The name is TALEEM -E- BALIGHAAN.

    Therefore, sometimes we enjoy adult discussion and adult jokes.

    Chalo Choro Raat Gayee, Baat Gayee………. meri tou abhee abhee subha hoi, Sava Paanch Bajay hain… actually its not even Fajr, in fact Fajr is at 6:55 a.m.

    I hate the long nights and short days. The variation is about 6~7 hours between Dec.21st the longest night and June 21st the longest day. In Dubai and Pakistan it is about one hour max? Or may be 90 minutes but not 7 hours.

    Imagine IF test cricket is being played here (minus the winter) with these long hours of night, who would be watching? Many crazy goons like me who are up in the middle of the night to munch some cereal and one of my nick names a decade ago was “Cereal Killer”

    Which Veena do you like? Saraswati Veena or Rudra Veena? Btw, both have double contours and attractive figure (body) and Saraswati is 2 inches shorter than Rudra. But she has 24 bras frets whereas Rudra has only 22 and both have 7 strings attached. So, any preference or you still wanna stick to Veena the Cover Gal? 😀

    When I saw your comment starting with Wah Javed…… I thought you are appreciating me for writing a quick new thread at your request, instead aapki nazar thread say phisal ker Veena per ja Chipkee! Bhai, I like music especially classical music hence I know about the instruments, not only Veena but, Sarod, Sitar, Santoor, Tabla, Mirdan aiksutra aiksutra …. don’t you remember: “Mirdan bajay tir kiti dhum, tir kiti dhum, taa thayeee?” I also like Mozart, Beethovan, Bach, Gershwin etc. I also like remix of old songs with DHIN CHICK DHIN CHICK MUSIC in it.

    Btw, knowledge bara nahee hota, bahot hoti hai ya kum hoti hai.

    Btw, cricket ka bhee ek instrument hai jis ko tuk, tuk kehtay hain aur tumhe pata hai kay uska Mahir kon hai? Kion kay tumhe uska Misdemeanor bahot pasand hai. I am not talking about the felony but his misdeeds. 😀

    I am being mischievous, in misquoting his misnomers and you think I am misleading others by misquoting your quotes. Since you think I am misrepresenting his miscellaneous mistakes it is a kinda mismanagement on part of the blog administrators. Misunderstanding is one thing and misunder-stating is another because if you create con-foo-yen between the two, then it is a mismatch.

    India says no to PCB

    MUMBAI – Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) received a ‘cold response’ from the Indian cricket officials for a bilateral series between two rival countries, PCB chief Zaka Ashraf said on Wednesday.
    Speaking exclusively from Singapore after the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) meeting, Zaka said: “We were keen to have open dialogue with the BCCI president, N Srinivasan, but unfortunately he didn’t turn up and instead sent Chief Operating Officer Ratnakar Shetty”.
    “I am being told by the BCCI official that the Indian government is not yet permitting to play against us”, Ashraf disclosed.

    Munir,

    I wanted to respond to your post directed at me in the other thread. You said you wanted to apologize if in any way you have offended me. This is not required, because you have not offended me in any way, neither has been any exchange between us that would even come closer to being confrontational. I have had debates with KS, JK, and OA before and many times on controversial topics. But we managed to keep it civil, while both sides made our points clear, there was never any ill feelings. We might have come across to each other as strong headed, but this is fine, when you have an opinion that you believe in you tend to defend it with vigor. So long as nothing gets personal it is fine. We on the other hand never had any such debates.

    May be it is just customary to say this? I recently saw a movie in Malayalam titled Adaminte Makan Abu (Adam’s son Abu). This is about an old and poor couple whose dream is to go to Hajj. This movie won National award in India for best picture and Best Actor, and it is also nominated as India’s entry to Oscar. In this movie the couple managed to save some money through various hardships and when it looked like they could go to Hajj, they went around telling people good byes. I didn’t know that there is a custom where you have to go to every person you know and tell them they should be forgiven for any mistakes committed. When I watched this movie, I found it very touching, that even though these couple have never harmed anyone, they still go around asking for forgiveness, even to a man who cheated them once. Perhaps this is what you are doing. Anyway you have not done anything to me, so no issues 🙂

    Misbah featured in this year’s top performers

    I just saw an article on Cricinfo written by an English guy called Rob Sheen who writes there often. He has selected a few players who made an impact in 2011, and guess who features prominent, none other than Misbah.

    Misbah’s calm and cool presence has been in stark contrast to his predecessor who is in jail now. Pakistan has won a record 33 matches this year under Misbah in all formats, even though it is against minnows.

    Now, before we go off again, I agree with those of you who are saying that Misbah is slow, and he may even be selfish, but cannot argue too much with his success. I find it hard to believe that you can just put any dummy in Misbah’s place and still Pakistan would have achieved the same results. WC win under Afridi is duly noted, before anyone point that out.

    Indian board is playing games with PCB, if it isn’t clear to anyone who is not living under a rock. Why do they still go around asking. Just let the relation be how they are, and if BCCI wishes to come forward, let them do it on their accord.

    SL are in hot waters against SA. They are up against it. I see a white wash coming up, may be they will draw a test. The lady of batting “Mahela” is not a very strong player against pace. Most Sri Lankans are lions at home, more than even Indians, but abroad they are like a mouse.

    Once Sanga and Mahela put on a record 674 run partnership against SA in SL, then Murali spun them out. That is still hurting SA, they are going to roll them over with pace here. No world record partnership will be coming. SL also made a shameless 974/6d against India, selfishly batting on and on after India made some 500+ and declared in two days. SL batted rest of 3 days in that Test and every from Jayasurya and Mahanama made records for themselves. In many way SL suffer for these things when they tour abroad.

    JK,

    I don’t understand most of your Urdu shayari. I skip right over them after my eyes start hurting reading them. I do understand your quips in Urdu though, such as Munir firing a shot from hiding behind the rocks, and Munir firing a pistol from someone’s shoulders so on 🙂 I like the sense of humor in them, especially when I visualize Munir hiding behind the rock and misfiring, then hiding quickly. I know this is all a good joke, and besides these expressions are there in many languages.

    Yes it is customary for Muslims to ask for forgiveness before going to Hajj. The reason is, in earlier days people from India used to go to Hajj through the land route and I am sure your geography is good enough to chalk out the route and they used to go on camels back and in caravans, the journey was so arduous and difficult and so long that some people used to die even before reaching Mecca. Now a days the journey is easy but, there are always chances of stampede and “Bhagdar” that a few dozen or even a few hundred die each year because of that and also because of ill health or heat stroke. So, before they embark upon that long journey they ask people to forgive them, because it is also a belief that God will forgive them but, in case you have hurt someone and if they hold a grudge against you, it will go down with you in your P&L account as a negative input, so it is better to please them as well before you embark on that journey. But, Munir is neither going to Hajj or he is going to die and he did not hurt your feelings by saying anything to you, so it was a kinda over doing on his part i.e., why I said, what I have said in my comments.

    Once again, there shouldn’t be any hard feelings even if we disagree on any subject, after all this is just a blog where people come to express their views and everyone has his/her own views and like you have said, as long as they are civil it is fine and OK. And, Munir has never been rude, abusive or uncivil, but sometimes he throws a stone at a beehive just for fun. And, most of the time he wants to defend the underdogs, there is some kinda Zoro’s spirit in him. Although Mishap is not a Miskeen, he neither the Miscongeniality but, his charm has gotten some attention from Munir. Baki sab theek hai. 😀

    LOL@ your comments on Sri Lanka for the negative batting in the past, it seems they are paying back what they did wrong. Playing in your own backyard and trying to score a 1000 runs is like a match that was played a 100 years ago. In Canberra, Tendulkar disappointed his secret admirer – Gavaskar by not scoring a first class hundred, how come retired? Asked Gavaskar. 😀

    Zardari’s days are numbered? Is he going to return to Pakistan? Did he actually write that memo? These and many other questions are being asked by people after the latest news that Gen. Kiyani and Gen. Pasha have submitted their reports to the SC of Pakistan in which they confirmed that, the MEMO exist. This Memogate is not like Bhaati Gate or, Mochi Gate but, it could also be an ExitGate for Zardari and his party and only time will tell and we have to wait and see which side Zardari’s camel will sit?

    Zardari may deny that he did not write the memo but, it is difficult to believe him since he has been writing op-eds in the international press since he became the President of Pakistan. We all know that he is not a literati, especially his comments in the guest book at the Qaid’s Mazar where he wrote, “May Gaod give us the strent to save Pakistan.” But, by signing the op-eds with his name he is acknowledging the fact that he is writing it albeit it could also be a ghost writer but, how come he takes credit of those op-eds especially since they are published in the international press such as the Washingtong Post? Therefore, people say that he must have written it and it is the result of his own paranoia that the army is going to say coooooo in his ear, he asked the Big Brother to help him out. That is a possibility that his panic button was pressed by error or whatever. Now the cat is out of the bag and Zardari is already out of the country.

    My feelings are he will not come back and he will seek protection in the UAE, which is a safe haven for him not only for his business empire but for his life. Similarly there are rumours that the appointment of Sherry Rahman as the successor of Haqani is a result of, not only her political background wherein she has held numerous important positions but, because of her working against the Blasphemy bill in which she asked to remove the death penalty, she has antagonized the extremists and we all have seen what happened to Salman Taseer, she would be safe in the USA like Zardari is safe in the UAE.

    According to the latest info. Zardari’s second batch of Presidency staff has reached Dubai to set up a skeleton office for him in Dubai? Hahaha, And he has asked his media team to also set up an office to issue his press release! So, there is a country within the country now? If he can do all that from Dubai, why can’t he come back to Pakistan and face the music. He won’t because he is a coward. He came from the backdoor and he exited from the backdoor.

    Yara, Dubai is not so big to carry Pakistan in its belly? This MFZ must simply shut his mouth and disappear in thin air. Like Imran Khan said, people are saying that Pakistan is a failed state and it is on the verge of breaking up! If such stupidities continue and this idiot shifts his office from Islamabad to Dubai only because he is a coward and a incompetent nicompoop, then Pakistan will be ridiculed even more and the whole world would be laughing at Pakistan and its people. The supereme court must dissolve the government and make an interim government till the next elections. But, who will be the head of that interim government is a billion dollar question?

    It appears a poem by Khalil Gibran written in 1934, and now in circulation in e-mails, suit Pakistan’s current dilemma?

    Pity the nation that raises not its voice
    save when it walks in a funeral,
    boasts not except among its ruins,
    and will rebel not save when its neck is laid
    between the sword and the block.

    Pity the nation whose statesman is a fox,
    whose philosopher is a juggler,
    and whose art is the art of patching and mimicking.

    Pity the nation that welcomes its new ruler with trumpeting,
    and farewells him with hooting,
    only to welcome another with trumpeting again.

    Pity the nation whose sages are dumb with years
    and whose strong men are yet in the cradle.
    Pity the nation divided into fragments,
    each fragment deeming itself a nation.

    SL bowling will be better in South Africa for obvious reasons compared to UAE. But, South African batting should also be superior compared to Pakistan.

    I think SL will do better in this series because their middle order has not performed for a long time. Also, they have a mental block against Pakistan and apart from the Ranatunga-Jayasuria years they have always looked vulnerable against Pakistan.

    What is the surprise in there being the “existence” of the Memo? We knew from day 1 that it exists, because the Americans accepted it exists although they said they did not trust its reliability.

    The point is whether Zardari instructed the Memo to be drafted and if he did not, who did?

    If the Pakistani senior leadership was not involved then it is very unlikely someone would play mischief and act childish in USA in order to “conspire against Pakistan”.

    I can assure you many minnows this year have also probably topped the records charts.

    Misbah has got that record playing against Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, West Indies and Sri Lanka.

    Sri Lanka play like a minnow against Pakistan anyway so there are 4 minnows there.

    If India was also playing below average teams I am sure you would say the same.

    I was speaking to someone about Imran recently and he made a good point which made me think.

    He was complaining about Imran now siding with corrupt and questionable individuals like Shah Mahmood or Mian Azhar or the rest (or siding with former Musharraf comrades).

    So I said that, well, he has claimed he will not give any ticket to anyone with a questionable background and how can someone in Pakistan do politics without having someone corrupt or questionable on their side?

    So that person remarked that, for 18 years Imran said that he will not form an alliance with anyone who is corrupt despite various offers that were made to him. So, if he did not do this for 18 years why is he doing this now?

    The answer is that Imran like all politicians is an opportunist and he knows that due to the corruption of the Zardari government, the country is disintegrating. So, this is definitely the only chance he will ever get to attract mass appeal.

    KS,

    Regarding SRK and Karan Johar wanting to do the movie about Hajj couple in Hindi, they are cheap imitators. There are many such movies from Malayalam that were remade into Hindi, but when they do it, they Bollywoodize it, making it more glamorous, big sets, dance, music, so on ..

    In terms of artistic value and cinematic content, some of these movies made in Malayalam are the best made in India. They are however not made in the scale of budget of Bollywood, and they don’t have the glamour. They are made based on solid stories and artistic value.

    In Hindi they come no where close to the original production. I would say they dumb it down to their level, meaning Karan Johar and other Bollywood director types.

    There are some good directors though, I like the guy who made 3 Idiots with Amir Khan. People rave about Amir Khan and his movies, I like them too compared to rest of Bollywood, however when you compare with Malayalam actors Mammooty and Mohan Lal, two of the greatest in terms of acting abilities, Amir Khan is nothing.

    That said, at one time I used to be an SRK fan, when I was young, there was some semblance between my looks and his, and girl used to find this interesting in college, I enjoyed it then, later on I realized SRK wasn’t after all that good looking, so what does that make of me .. LOL.

    SRT stuck in the 90’s again

    In Canberra Tendulkar retired for 92 not out, to give chance to others. My sensational heading is poking fun at people counting down his hundred.

    Gavaskar thinks a first class hundred is a first class hundred, the feeling of getting a hundred is important, he says, Tendulkar should have hit two fours to get there before retiring.

    Kallis hit on the head by Dilhara and he falls to the ground

    Dilhara after all of the fast bowlers you could find lands one bounce on Kallis helmet and he was down on the ground, he was bleeding and not balanced for some time. After physio examined him he continued, but he was shaken up surely, he was on 24 then, and eventually got out on 31. He offered another chance soon after that got put down.

    Last year Kallis was bounced out by Sreesanth, there was a picture where Kallis is arching to sharp bouncer from Sreesanth and it hit him on the glove.

    This is why Kallis is not a great

    Viv Richards of course is the greatest ever player that I have seen play. I said this before too. I have not seen Bradman or others in the previous era before 80’s. But Sir Viv was great.

    As for Tendulkar getting jarred, that is a load of BS, if you are talking about Akhtar’s claim, it is just that, his claim. Don’t expect me to be dragged into another debate on Tendulkar. If you want to call him scared by fast bowling, go ahead, that is your opinion and you have a choice to express your opinion. Every Tom, Zen, and Aktar has their opinion, like someone said opinions are like “A” hole, everyone has got one 🙂

    Zen has mentioned about Tendulkar and there was already a huge debate on Actor’s book. And, not only that I saw that live match in Pakistan when Tendulkar fell on the ground and Jeff Boycott was the commentator and he said, “his is one of the best scenes I have seen in cricket in my whole life, the world’s best batsman playing against the world’s fastest bowler and in his defence he falls on the ground!” Btw, Tendulkar also got out on that occasion, clean bowled by Akhtar in the same over.

    I have also seen the match live it was also in Pakistan i.e., PK vs. WI and Lara was hit by Actor’s bouncer which struck him behind his ear and on his neck just below his helmet and Lara fell on the ground like a Lizard falling from the roof, he was taken back in to the dressing room, he did not bat in that match after that.

    Sami’s bouncer against Laxman in Bangalore test crashed into his helmet’s cage and gave him a black eye,
    I couldn’t believe that the cage is so weak or the ball is so hard that it can break the metal? He was taken off the field and he came back to bat again in the end but, India lost that match and he added very insignificantly to his earlier total.

    So, these things do happen in cricket even to the greatest of the greats. Do you know that Andy Roberts knocked off Ian Bothom’s 4 front teeth? Two of them fell on the ground and two were taken out by the doctors when he reached the hospital. I am sure, Botham will carry that injury for the rest of his life and will never forget Andy Roberts. It wasn’t a test match but, a county match and Botham was very young then.

    Whn u compare greats,greatest should figure in that list.

    Yes i agree that viv was the greatest,infact even richie richardson was a better player of pace and never shivered.

  71. #71 by NewGuy on December 16, 2011 - 3:56 PM

    JK,

    OK, I have not seen Tendulkar or Lara fall to the ground, if you say so then these must be real incidents. Akhtar must have been real fast then and would have given a few problems to the best. I have not followed or seen much of it.

    When I saw Akhtar he was bowling to Sehwag and Tendulkar in ’03 WC and he was getting hit over the park, since then I have seen him on an off, but he was a spent force by then.

    I have read that someone said he was real fast and mean when he came on, he only did not last too long.

    There was a mean WI fast bowler called Pat Patterson once, he was the fastest bowler for a brief period, and he terrorized batsmen for a brief while with this pace and bounce. Like Akhtar he did not last long.

    One Australian player recounted an incident that happened with Patterson and the Don during a Test match series in Australia. Patterson was at his peak pace then, but sometimes as it happens after the top order fails, the tail wags for a bit. In this match Merv Hughes a big burly Aussie bowler was immovable for some time, they could not get him or the other tail enders out.

    Don Bradman was watching this test at the ground.

    During the break, the players from both sides got to meet Bradman, when his turn came Pat Patterson stood up to shake Don’s hand, as we all know the Don was a short guy, Patterson towered over him with all his 6 ft 7 inches, and said in his Jamaican drawl “Mon, you Bradman, I bowl at you Mon, I kill you, I cut you in half”. Bradman simply looked at him in the eye and said No chance mate, you didn’t even get out Merv Hughes, you wouldn’t have a chance against me and moved on.

    So, there have been of course bowlers fast and scary at some point, they would have troubled the best.

    But, here we are talking about Dilhara and Sreesanth. Not Steyn, or Akhtar at his peak. Anyway, my opinion on Kallis is that he is not as great as the others mentioned.

  72. #72 by NewGuy on December 16, 2011 - 4:02 PM

    The point of the story about Patterson is that they like to brag that they were scary and mean. It is the same thing with Akhtar calling Tendulkar shivering. Like Patterson threatened to kill and cut in half Bradman, it is his fast bowlers ego talking. Anyhow, facing fast bowling is no fun, I have played club level and even fast medium pace at kind of techniques we posses, is real scary. It is physics. You can’t fight it.

    Khurafaat in our day to day life is more like GUP Urdu wali Gup shup… and it also means innovation …… you say things in such a way that it rhymes in words, it gives ulta pulta meanings and yet you understand the pun. There is a very famous Khurafat which starts like this:

    baat ki baat khurfaat ki khurafaat
    bakri ko churr gaye bayry kay path (bayry is the tree of bare the fruit or Plum in English – note the bakri was eaten by bayry leaves)
    bayry kay kaatay teen teen hath (meaning, three branches were cut and planted)
    ekk ekk kay basaye teen teen gaon (these branches were planted in 3 different villages)
    2 ujday phujday ek basa hee nahee (basically neither of the three branches survived but, the meaning is derived from one of them)
    jo basa he nahee uss may basaye teen kumar (Kumar is the guy who makes clay pottery)
    2 langday loolay ek ko hath hee nahee (once again the pun is there, that neither of 3 ca do anything)
    jis kay hath hee nahee usnay banaye 3 handiyaan (handi is well known, he made 3 clay ki handiyaan)
    2 tooti phooti ek ko tala he nahee (tala is bottom of the handi)
    jis ko tala hee nahee usmay pakaye 3 chawal
    2 kucchay pukkay ek gala hee nahee (once again they are all worthless to eat)
    jo gala hee nahee uss may bithaye 3 mussalee (mussallee or guests who came to eat)
    2 bhookay rehay ek ko milaa hee nahee
    jis ko milaa hee nahee usko lagaye 3 ghoonsay
    2 khali gaye ek laga hee nahee.

    The rest, I am sure you can understand…. these are meant for kids and it also helps them to improve their own vocabulary and creativity skills to write satire.

    There is also a different kinda Khurafaat in the Mystical world or the Tilismi Duniya which is like this:

    Two giant wrestlers were wrestling, without any audience, a Darwish was passing by and they asked him to stop and watch their match, the Darwish replied he has no time to wait bakaoz he is in a hurry BUTTAA he can watch their fight while he is walking.

    So, he picked up the two giant wrestlers and placed them on his left palm and kept walking and watching their fight.

    An eagle dived from above the sky and picked up the two wrestlers assuming that it is some kinda food, but after a while realised it is not, she dropped them from her claws.

    Below in the Palace of a King or Badshah, a Badshahzadi or a Princess after taking a bath was lying in a hammock and relaxing, when the eagle dropped those giant wrestlers, they fell into the eyes of the Princes and she calls one of her maids and says: “Dekho zara meri aankh may koi Tinka gira hai kya?”

    The mystery was who was the biggest of the big ???? The Darwish, the Eagle or the Princess?

    So, this is another kinda Khurafaat or GupShup, which was very popular during my parents generation and we as kids heard them and used to remember them, you can see that I still remember it. 😀

    I hope you got the essence of how I created Mishap Khurafaat? 😀

    Akhtar never wrote he was shivering, he said he was shaken or taken aback something like that never shivering or trembling.

    And, these two incidents happened after the 2003 WC in SA, so he wasn’t a spent force then, he became later around 2006-07 time.

    I do remember Pat Patterson, he used to Pat his foot a few times on the ground before taking his start as if he is getting a kick start for his run up!

    I never liked Kallis’s batting. Even when I did some research recently and it showed that he has a high percentage of playing match winning knocks, I am still not convinced.

    His batting, like Sangakkara’s is very methodical and mechanical. I have never seen him to anything extraordinary. He just blocks, and whenever the bowler bowls a bad delivery he launches a shot. But, that is how batsmen of yesteryears used to bat.

    Unlike Lara, SRT, Sehwag etc I have never seen him hit stunning shots, or bludgeon the bowling, or use his feet stylishly etc.

    His defence is very good but he is not a attacking player.

    JK,

    There is a huge difference between shaken or taken back, and legs trembling. I don’t have a problem if Akhtar said Tendulkar was taken back, when he was bowling at 160 kmh thundebolts aimed at the middle bottom of middle stump, or aimed at his head. It just means, Akhtar was a mean fast bowler at his peak powers. The point of greatness for Tendulkar really is whether he came back from it eventually and dominated Akhtar is other games, and he did. I have seen Tendulkar getting hit by Waqar on the jaw on his debut test, he was a 16 year old then and looked like a boy, he continued batting after wiping blood away, and in that test he faced Imran, Akram, and Waqar. In this very next series in NZ he faced Sir Richard Hadlee, and made 88 runs, nearly becoming breaking Hanif Mohammed’s record for youngest centurion. Se, we all know he is a great player against fast bowling, but of course shaken or taken back is nothing to be ashamed of.

    As for those people in India jumping on this comment, it is just plain silly, the best way to deal with it with a “so what” ?

    From my memory Boycott made that remark when SRT got hit on the helmet and the ball went to the boundary on Akhtar’s bowling. I don’t remember SRT falling to the ground to any bowler. By this I don’t mean that can’t happen to him. But, I have seen Ganguly, Anwar, Lara etc. I remember when Akhtar hit Ganguly on the chest or shoulder and the way Ganguly fell, it was almost like he had died.

    I remember when Akhtar hit Lara and Lara fell and in the end Akhtar remarked that he didn’t feel good hitting Lara, in his opinion the best batsman of the modern era.

    What I remember about SRT is when he lost his balance and fell on his knees against Asif and got bowled. I was later reading that Asif claimed, “Tendulkar ney meray aagay gutney take diye”, meaning, Tendulkar got down on his knees in front of me.

    Recently I was watching some highlights of Asif’s bowling and saw this SRT dismissal. The reason why SRT missed the ball was because it kept low. The bounce must have been uneven. It is still SRT’s fault, of course, because he should have defended the ball even if it was low, but he was not expecting this kind of bounce. So the dismissal, to me, seemed more due to bad bounce rather than anything great about Asif’s bowling.

    By this I don’t mean to undermine Asif’s bowling who was the best new ball bowler of his time.

    If anything Tendulkar plays good bowling well and maybe bad bowling poorly.

    I remember once we were discussing that SRT’s gets out to new bowlers because he hasn’t experienced their bowling before. Also, I was watching Abdul Razzaq’s interview recently and he was claiming that he has got SRT out many times. So, this seems to indicate that SRT is not good against mediocre bowling.

    As far as good bowlers go, everyone from McGrath, to Warne, to Steyn, to Murali etc, rate him highly.

  88. #88 by Sentinel Prime on December 16, 2011 - 4:53 PM

    It is Afridi who claimed that SRT’s legs were trembling. Akhtar was saying that SRT was scared of him. “Scared” is a very general term and could mean everything from being merely uncomfortable to legs trembling.

    I don’t think SRT’s legs would tremble against Akhtar or against anyone. He dominated Lee in his peak and Lee was more consistent than Akhtar. It is unlikely that a batsman who is known for playing good bowlers well, would tremble.

    As far as discomfort goes, he was probably uncomfortable or maybe even “scared” of fast bowling, but not in a way that it would make his legs tremble.

    Akhtar has a big mouth and thinks he can blab what he likes because he got SRT and Ponting out a couple of times. His worst ODI and Test bowling is against Australia and India and the fact is that he got slaughtered by these two teams.

    I used to say on Pakspin that Akhtar should not be played against India. I was right because Akhtar has single handedly lost matches for Pakistan vs India.

    KS,

    Mohan Lal acted in some Hindi movies too. The one that comes to mind immediately is Company directed by Ram Gopal Varma, starring Ajay Devgan, Vivek Oberoi, so on .. Mohal Lal is the Police Commissioner in this movie. His acting is so natural, that he doesn’t seem to try to put any effort, yet is all comes natural. In this movie he is a south indian who is the commissioner of police in Mumbai, he just acts his natural stuff with normal south indian accent so on .. without any effort to hide or change it, or project it.

    He has acted in so many master piece roles in Malayalam however, where he can bring out great depths of emotions without taking any effort. Compared to Bollywood, they all look cheap.

    Rajanikant is from Tamil, and agreed his movies are atrocious. But the Tamil people love him, so he is a super star. They are again very different, the Tamil people.

    Mammooty is another actor, his real name is Muhammad Kutty, shortened as Mammooty (Kutty stands for young boy, it is typical in Kerala to call people with this expression after their names in old days). He is an equally accomplished actor, who has won national awards equal amount of times as Mohan Lal. Also Resul Pookutty the Oscar winner is from Kerala.

    Not all regional movies are good. Kerala and Bengal produces the best movies in India for their artistic values and cinematic content. Some times these are called parallel cinema. But point is even main stream movies from Kerala are far better that Bollywood in content and acting.

    Mohsin might get PCB notice for giving interview

    KARACHI: Pakistan’s interim cricket coach Mohsin Khan is expected to get a show cause notice from the PCB for stating that he was not willing to accept any position with the national team other than being the head coach.

    In an unusually hard-hitting interview to the ‘Express Tribune’, Mohsin, who is presently with the Pakistan team in Bangladesh, hinted that he would reject any offer to become the batting coach of the national team.

    “I’m always ready to serve Pakistan but with grace and dignity,” the former Test batsman said in the interview.

    “I’ll not avail an opportunity at the cost of my self-respect. I’ll refuse any offer which ignores years of service for my country as a cricketer, selector and coach.”

    Chappell to address Australian team to “demystify” Tendulkar

    Melbourne: Former India coach Greg Chappell will address the out of form Australian cricketers before the first Test starting on December 26 to reveal to them the chinks in Sachin Tendulkar’s armour, according to a report.

    A report in ‘Daily Telegraph’ says, Chappell will address the Australian team next week on how to tackle the likes of Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag in the gruelling Test series beginning in Melbourne.

    “Chappell will address the Australian squad for the first Test next week and he is the one man with the knowledge to demystify the champion (Tendulkar) Australia never feel they have got to the bottom of,” the report said.

    “To Australian bowlers Tendulkar has been the master they have never mastered. His record against Australia in Tests – he averages 60.6 with 11 centuries in 31 Tests – makes him the greatest Aussie basher of his generation,” it said.

    Chappell, in his just released autobiography ‘Fierce Focus’, has said that Tendulkar was “surprisingly fragile” during a particular phase in his career when he had to cope with struggling form and a tennis elbow injury.

    According to the report, Chappell, who had a controversial three-year stint as India coach from 2005-07, will be able to give insights into the character of the Indian team including the explosive opener Virender Sehwag, a player he greatly admired.

  96. #96 by Sentinel Prime on December 16, 2011 - 5:18 PM

    Ganguly made Chappell’s involvement in Indian cricket look meaningless.

    That is because Ganguly was aggressive and courageous.

    Batting wise he was not a genius, a good player on his day but nothing Lara or SRT like, but he did to India what Nasser Hussein did to England.

  97. #97 by Sentinel Prime on December 16, 2011 - 5:39 PM

    Innings victory likely for SA now.

    Will SL bounce back?

    If they get whitewashed by SA what will they do? I think Dilshan will have to step down from captaincy.

    They will have to make a younger player captain and maybe the end of Jayawardene from Test cricket is near.

  98. #98 by Sentinel Prime on December 16, 2011 - 5:44 PM

    Pakistan World Cup performance must have had a huge impact on their ratings.

    There is only a difference of about 6 points between 5th placed Pakistan and 3rd placed SA, but in reality the SA team is much better than Pakistan in batting and fielding and possibly even bowling.

    Steyn, Morken and Tsotsobe I think are better than Gul, Junaid and Cheema.

    so this shouyld be 3rd, this should be 5th is a not a big deal

    but iam disagree about batsmen rated vis a vis being floored.

    even good batsmen get floored. it more has to do wether a batsman gets out on short pitched deliveries or not.

    thts the benchmark for quality batsmenship.

    i know averages of kallis, sehwag, lara etc

    averages are not the only criteria.

    there was a reason behind mentioning this fact.

    kallis is a great allrounder and a great batsman but hes a better allrounder than a batsman.

    i dont have issues with him being floored, hes not notoriuos like michael bevan that he cant play short stuff- thats not his weakness.

    the only grey area he has is his inability to tear bowlers apart like richards, sehwag etgc.

    but he’s a solid player and he doesnt get dismissed by short pitch stuff.

    I have said it’s an insult to Kallis to say Misbah has a good defence.

    Kallis has a very good defence. He is better than SRT at defence.

    He is just boring and doesn’t change his style of play. I have never seen him tear bowling apart. He doesn’t dance on the pitch like Lara. He doesn’t bludgeon like Sehwag. He is not stylish and aggressive like Ponting. He doesn’t hit good balls or good bowlers like SRT.

    I can never accept him as being in the league of greats. There is a reason why he is not mentioned in the league of the above players. I am sure he has many centuries and he is probably in the top 5 run scorers in ODI and Tests, but ask yourself why people don’t use his name in the same sentence as the above players.

    Tom

    The way you are using the word “scared” in that comment, I can agree that SRT might have been scared in that context.

    But legs trembling- I find that difficult to accept simply because as performance and statistics go, he has played fast bowlers quite well.

    Akhtar would occasionally bowl in the 90s, but I am sure Lee’s average speed was better because Lee was fitter and younger than AKhtar. Akhtar might have bowled faster balls, but Lee could bowl fast more consistently. I think it is more sensible to say Lee induced more fear than Akhtar.

    Don’t expect England batsmen to perform against Pakistani bowlers.

    Cheema and Junaid are untested and Gul is back in form.

    Plus, Ajmal and Rehman will probably challenge them.

    I just get a bad feeling about England’s batting.

    Put it this way- if Pakistan bat they can perhaps not score beyond 250. But can England score 300 vs Pakistani spin?

    That is why I am saying that it is likely the difference in runs is not that great. A surprise knock from Hafeez, or U Akmal, or the wicketkeeper might tilt things in Pakistan’s favour.

    If they were playing England, India, SA or Australia at home they would have been annihilated. England never feel comfortable on a “subcontinental” pitch.

    Another thing to note is that, England’s openers are left handed. I feel if Pakistan can use Hafeez or Ajmal to open the bowling, or make them first bowling change, then England can be vulnerable because left handers tend to struggle against off spinners.

    It will require aggressive captaincy and it might require some surprise knocks from Pakistani batsmen but I don’t feel England can easily dominate Pakistan.

    Zen,

    I don’t believe in rating great players on a scale of 1 to 10 as you just did, Bradman #1, Richards #2, the rest #3, #5 so on .. this is a silly exercise.

    Humans have a need to do this type of thing. This is why typically questionnaires ask for rate something from 1-10 with 10 being top and 1 being lowest. I always dislike this type of question, because in my view there are always in between, some things that cannot be just placed on a number scale.

    There are several great players. Tendulkar, Lara, Ponting, from this generation sits along with Richards, Bradman, Sobers, etc from past.

    Kallis simply isn’t a great, he surely has the numbers, but that is all he has.

    But CAN England score 350+?

    The only side that can perform 350 vs Pakistan spin attack is India or maybe South Africa if they bat aggressively.

    Pakistan can make 250 with Hafeez, Taufeeq, Younis, Azhar Ali, Misbah etc doing their usual thing and making 30s from 100 balls.

    Let’s start from 2007 and look at England’s performance overseas.

    2007:

    Lost to Sri Lanka. England had Cook, Bell, Pietersen, Anderson and Panesar.

    2008:

    Lost to India. England had Cook, Strauss, Bell, Pietersen, Swann, Broad and Flintoff in their team.

    Beat NZ with a very similar team to the one that toured Sri Lanka in 2007 and lost.

    2009:

    Lost to West Indies. They had pretty much everyone except Swann.

    2010:

    Beat Bangladesh

    Beat Australia in The Ashes

    Zen

    Jerome Taylor was a nobody and Kemar Roach is quicker than him. Windies surprise every now and then.

    They beat Australia first in 2005 and Australia have had a mental block since then. I think they have played 4 times since then and England have won thrice.

    Cook and Swann have risen in form, but then again how they perform in UAE remains to be seen.

  156. #156 by Sentinel Prime on December 16, 2011 - 7:59 PM

    This killer instinct of England only works at home or on familiar surfaces.

  157. #157 by Sentinel Prime on December 16, 2011 - 8:16 PM

    Zen

    Actually…

    That new bowler they have, called Finn. He is quick I think.

    He might trouble Pakistan.

  158. #158 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 8:16 PM

    Ks

    whn they lost to sl,murali was playing.so who is stronger

    sl in sl with murali or pk in uae

  159. #159 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 8:24 PM

    i dont think he’ll p[lay

    theyll go with broad, anderson,monty and swann. i dont know theyll include bopara og for extra bowler

    what u reckon?

    broad is dangerous bakaoz he gets reverse and so is cheema

  160. #160 by Sentinel Prime on December 16, 2011 - 8:30 PM

    I don’t think they play Anderson on flat tracks.

    Broad, Swann and Monty are definitely playing. They might play Tremlett because of bounce and I would go for Finn because he gets pace.

  161. #161 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 8:32 PM

    yeah, good combo

    so how do u think pk will play swann and monty

    i sniff wkts

  162. #162 by Sentinel Prime on December 16, 2011 - 8:38 PM

    Tom

    In all of this discussion we had, I think I disregarded the fact that most England bowlers now bowl 85mph+.

    This is something that might destroy Pakistan.

    Can’t play pace, bounce, swing or seam.

    You would think that a country that produced Akhtar, Waqar and the likes of Sami and Zahid, would produce better batsmen.

  163. #163 by Sentinel Prime on December 16, 2011 - 8:39 PM

    Monty is not a big problem.

    He wilts under pressure.

    Swann, they should just play him like how they played Herath vs Sri Lanka (block, block).

  164. #164 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 8:42 PM

    hahaha block block block

    reminds me of goldilocks

    yeah theyre quick but there atre flat tracks

    you need reverse swing which broad has

    but i feel panesar will not wilt, when a bowler gets a second chance he tries to maximize.

    ill tell u ks batting of pk is suspect. it hasnt been tested recently. even in odis and 20s afridi hiud their defeciencies.

  165. #165 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 16, 2011 - 8:43 PM

    Oh Gosh! I came back from Jummah and had my lunch, now I have to read 4 pages of comments.

    1. NewGuy, you forgot to mention MuruGun and also that other guy whose video I once watched he was dancing on top of the trains and top of the buses and he was supposed to be a more attractive dancer than Michael Jackson. What was his name?

    2. Zen, that actress is Deepika Padukone ( I always say Paddu Kone hai?) Well, she is nothing extra ordinary it is the make up and air-brushing plus the camera makes them more sesky. Aur waisay bhee log kehtay hain, jawani may tou gadhee bhee seskee lagti hai. 😀

    3. khansahab, I think it will not be easy for Pakistan to beat England in the UAE.

  166. #166 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 8:45 PM

    come on jk, u read books and comment, even here

    no the other one with fat lips, whats her name?

    thats what im telling ks, england wont be easy

  167. #167 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 8:48 PM

    well yuvraj had an affair with paddukone

    dhoni had with some girl aasen, i heard

  168. #168 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 8:51 PM

    yeah i remembered

    chopra, priyanka chopra

  169. #169 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 8:55 PM

    well anyway you guys know more about indian movies than me

    its been more than a decade i watched one

    its mainly hollywood now

    all those geetmalas and shakti kapoors, kader khans, amjad khans, jackie dada, anil khapur bla bla….

  170. #170 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 16, 2011 - 8:58 PM

    Zen

    Paddukone was killing two birds with one stone, she was having simultaneous affair with both of them. Malik was in second league, he met an EKASTRA called Siyali Bhagat and for her, he went to Mumbai 4 times in 2 months, finally ended up as a ball boy of Sania.

    Accha Priyanka Chopra, I think she was Miss India or even more than that? Khair vo tou Zeeni Babe was also Miss India.

  171. #171 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 9:00 PM

    they r all ordinary i know

    i once saw pics of julia roberts, michelle pfeiffer, sharon stone w/o make up

    ughhhhhhhhhhh……………….

    i couldnt believe, then it finally dawned upon me all women are pretty from a distance

    once yoiu go near, its all a charade

    I once saw a movie of kabir bedi with rekha

    i dont know the name but there was a song which i still remember and it fits here

    ye chandni, ye roshni dhokaa hae dhokaaa

  172. #172 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 9:01 PM

    i dont think malik would have got her

    padukone has a higher price tag then this ch2

  173. #173 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 16, 2011 - 9:05 PM

    Goldilocks reminds me of Goldie Hawn, she was one very attractive and funny looking girl. I guess she is at least ……. between 65~70 may be? I think she is still alive unlike Audrey Hepburn, she died early because of cancer. She and Imran Khan were designated as US ambassadors of peace or something and went togather to Bangladesh and a few other countries.

    Btw, fat lips are (at least they were) in fashion sometime back and girls especially models and actresses used to get them botoxed.

    I have met and seen a lot of Indian actors and actresses in Dubai, Mumbai and London and you won’t believe without make up they don’t even deserve a second look. I was staying at Oberoi Sheraton in Mumbai and at the reception desk, the guy was talking to me then suddenly moved aside and asked the lady behind me, madam, madam, how may I help you? I said, O bhai first finish the job gimme my keys and I wanna check-in, sir one minute sir she is our actress, don’t you know her? I said NO, I really don’t remember her name now but, reportedly she is famous. But, she looked pretty ordinary.

    Shabana say tou kai bar gup shup hoi she looks very much like a gharailoo type. Madhuri I saw in her make up and she looked just the same as she look in the movies. And, a dozen of them in the cricket matches, they all used to sit two rows ahead of us.

  175. #175 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 16, 2011 - 9:12 PM

    No Malik was not in a queue for Paddukone he could only admire her from a distance, the other reason which is a plus point for both of them is, both of them are MOMINS …. whereas we are just Muslims. 😀

    I noticed Imran Farhat can’t use his feet. He has limited shots. He doesn’t time the ball well. He has poor hand eye coordination. He can’t place the ball well.

    Why is he in the team?

    Javed A Khan

    I agree Dravid has given good suggestions about Test cricket.

    I also think that a team should be penalised 50 runs if they don’t manage 27 runs in 10 overs.

    Will end this pathetic cricket Pakistan and minnows are playing, which is destroying Test cricket.

    ICC should bring new rules aimed at eliminating negative cricket.

    No one is against SLOW batting. Slow batting (Dravid) can be beautiful, constructive and classy. There is a difference between caution and negativity.

    Who can admonish cautious batting? Inzamam could be very cautious. His career strike rate is not high. But, his batting was totally constructive and never negative.

  180. #180 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 16, 2011 - 9:37 PM

    I am agree on Inzi and Farhat ki parchee.

  181. #181 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 9:50 PM

    Ks

    they should make 2 divisions.first 4 teams divishion A, last 4 teams div B.

    Bangla and zimbabwe should be stripd of test status.

  182. #182 by Sentinel Prime on December 16, 2011 - 10:35 PM

    I agree.

    But, what if competition is very intense between teams rated 3-5 or something.

  183. #183 by Zen on December 16, 2011 - 10:41 PM

    Well u can have a test match btw teams 4 and 5 and winner can leapfrog into div A

    ks,how do u think kp will play? He wont allow paki bowlers to dominate and trott is avg 60 in tests. With these 2,u have 350 score.

  184. #184 by NewGuy on December 16, 2011 - 10:47 PM

    JK,

    I don’t know who is MuruGun, I think you are trying to say the name Murugan or Murukan which is a Tamil name for one of the junior Hindu gods, one of the sons of Shiva the lord of destruction.

    You must be mistaken for Rajanikant, the big Tamil hero, who does gimmicky things like throwing a cigarette in the air and catching it in the mouth on the way down. In one movie he take out his pistol fired at the cigarette to light up and then catch it as it comes down. All this while he is about to face a dozen or so baddies.

    Rajanikant acts in outrageous scenes like this, and the Tamil people like it, as I said they are a unique kind of folks.

  185. #185 by NewGuy on December 16, 2011 - 10:51 PM

    Well .. Deepika Padukone is the daughter of former Indian badminton player Prakash, she is now with Vijay Mallaya’s son, I don’t what his name, they are seen together in IPL games, coochie cooing. I don’t follow all the gossips, just reporting what I saw. As for Yuvi / Dhoni, I don’t know if they received anything real from her, or was just hoping they will get something 🙂 LOL .. she may not be very attractive, but even gutter water is worth something when you are lost in an isolated desert, parched and thirsty, you know 😉

    As for Priyanka Chopra, she is former Miss World. I actually like her. She has a very good smile.

    You think I dunno who Rajnikant is? I may have seen one or two of his movies with some friends at their house and too very long ago but, I enjoyed the serendipities and stupidities and laughed with friends because I don’t like serious movies. In our bank there was a customer his name was Rajnikant and once he wrote a cheque exceeding his line of credit limits and then he phoned the manager and he requested him to approve the cheque and not to return it (in Dubai a cheque if it is bounced due to insufficient funds is a very serious offence and you can land in a jail, no jokes) but, the manager said, “No Rajni, I can’t” 😀

    Murugun is Murugun it is not Murukan and one of the Telugu Desum guys told me muru means 3 and this fellow used to appear in TV commercial add wearing bright and gaudy coloured trousers and loose shirts and a cowboy hat, he enters a bar and yells, “RENDU (2) WHISKY, RENDU (2) MASALA DOSA and then, he takes out three pistols, shoots at the hanging lights in one of the corners and it was all in Rajnikant style, the first gun he tosses it up in the air, takes out the two from both sides, shoot one after the other, keeps one back in to the side holster and in the meantime he catches the third one and shoots off and blows off the smoke from the gun and says: WE ARE LIKE THIS WONLEE !

    I will find out the name of the other dancer guy and will tell you later.

  188. #188 by NewGuy on December 17, 2011 - 3:58 AM

    JK,

    I have no idea what you are talking about. Also you keep saying Telugu Desam, there is no Telugu Desam state, it is a concept that some people want. The state is called Andhra Pradesh, or AP for short. Telugu is the language they speak there. Telugu Desam is a movement where one section of state, mainly Hyderabad and vicinity wants to go separate as Telugu Desam, with rest of the state to remain as Andhra Pradesh. This is not going anywhere so far. This is like Qubec wants to go separate state type of thing.

    The main issue is AP people are rich and they have lot of farm lands, their Telugu is supposedly purer, while original inhabitants of urban areas around Hyderabad are poorer and their Telugu is supposedly inferior. Go figure. Anyway political parties make good mileage out of the situation. I just though I will clarify this. The state is called Andhra.

  189. #189 by NewGuy on December 17, 2011 - 3:59 AM

    Come to think of it, I like Priyanka Chopra better than both Karina / Katrina / chatrina. Priyanka is a bit on the darker side, but her features are better, and she got a great smile as I said.

    Zen
    For ile dis…… you can only say EDF and people get it. 😉

    NewGuy,

    I like that coochie cooing in this context, Paddukone is a very shrewed gal, she takes advantage of her height because in India most filmi heroines are short. And, I am not surprised if Maliya’s son is head over heels for her. I have met Maliya in DXB and once again, the same Telugu Desum guy told me that he may have altered his name from Mallaiya to Maliya because in his home town these names are used like tom, dick and harry…… Aillaiya, Mallaiya and Pochaiya… so, he has kinda sugarcoated or window dressed his name, I dunno but this is what he said.

    Among Muslims especially among the Arabs the name Saleh (meaning Pious) is very common and popular but, in the sub-continent the word Sala or plural Salay i.e., wife’s brother is used in a derogatory manner. So, some people I know they spell it and even pronounce it as SWALEH, there is nothing to be ashamed of if it is your name. Among the Shias they have names like, “Khaak-e-Ali and Kalb-e-Ali” which means the dust under the feet of Ali and the second one is Ali’s dog. Some later felt ashamed and changed it from Kalb-e-Ali to Qalb-e-Ali (Qalb means heart).

    In Arabic Harami means chor or theif, like we say “vo bahot chor hai,” means nothing not even theif but just an expression for clever like a slyfox or even for being smart with friends. But, in Urdu and Hindi, Harami means bastard. So if an Arab especially from Dubai if he says, “hoo harami” means he is a chor. It is all said in good sense nothing bad no ill feelings.

  191. #191 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 17, 2011 - 4:14 AM

    NewGuy

    I know the difference I am just using the word Telugu Desum because, some of the Telugu speaking guys still refer it as TD whereas I know that there will be no more division, the movement has failed. There is a slight difference in the words they use like, Aiyaa and Undee or Mister or Sahab. During my trip to India other than the main cities like Delhi, Bombay, Agra, Gwalior, Bangalore, Mysore and Hyderabad, I also went to the South cities like, Vijaywada, Guntur, Guntakal, Masulipatnam, Vishakapatnam and on the road trip from Bangalore to Mysore, also went to Sri Rangapatnam and Nundi Hills, saw Tipu’s drop (I am sure you didn’t 😀 ) And, went to see the famous Bindraban gardens. I have the habit of picking up words of the local language and even try to mimick in the same accent.

    Also to so many other small towns and villages and that was on hunting trips like Warangal, Kazipet, Rachni Road, Kaghaznagar, Adilabad, Parkal, they are all in the same belt. I know the Naxalite movement and because of them, people stopped hunting as they used to snatch arms and ammunitions from the hunters and demand ranson from people and I know about Veerappan and how he was shot dead by the police etc., I also know that Aurangabad and Gulberga used to be a part of Hyderabad State prior to Andhra Pradesh’s creation, Aurangabad and Gulperga are now in Maharashtra, I dont need to figure it out by doing any research. 😀

This year it is not likely to be a WHITE CHRISTMAS the reason is there are more brown people in Canada now 😀 but, jokes aside they get very upset if there is no snow on Christmas eve and the following day and even on Boxing Day. The 10 day weather shows that there is NO snow till Dec. 26th. Our worst months are Jan and Feb when the mercury falls below zero up to -35C to -45C but, that is just touch and go for a day or two and then it goes back to -20C and it is a big relief. If it is -5C smokers come out on the street in T-shirts and shirts to smoke outside.

    It is a fact that Katrina and Kareena don’t need a lot of make up. The primary reason is that in the subcontinent women use make up to make their skin appear lighter, but both of them have light skin anyway. One if half gori and one is Punjaban.

    I guess beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

    I can never find Madhuri pretty but I bet you do.

    If you think Kareena’s features are not nice, then what about Madhuri’s big teeth?

    A person should look good overall and that is beauty- you can’t isolate their facial features and say that, because Madhuri had big eyes, or a well bridged nose and thin lips, and even though she had big teeth, makes her pretty.

    Kareena’s eyes or lips may not be as good, but overall her face looks better in my opinion.

    We are talking about beauty here, not suaveness or sexiness, so Katrina is beautiful. If you want to discuss sex appeal then many people will find Veena Malik very sexy with no “suaveness”.

    Bipasha, you think is hot because she takes her clothes off easily.

    KS,

    Priyanka do not need make or to make her skin light to be look attractive, she is attractive in her dusky skin, it is the features that makes it, not the color.

    Lighter skin color do not mean automatically they look pretty. In movies I know they make her skin look lighter with make up, but she doesn’t need it.

    I know you like goris and punjabans, I have very close experience with the former, and a half punjaban / half kashmiri, let me tell you it only lasts for about 30 minutes, until the next time 🙂

    Katrina is actually pretty plain in her features. Priyanka was a former miss world.

    according to cricinfo match report this is sl status recently

    Sri Lanka’s cricket has taken a worrying nosedive since they finished runners up at the World Cup. Even then there were rumblings of discontent and now their on-field performances are suffering. This limp second innings followed previous collapses this year against England at Cardiff (82), Australia at Galle (105) and further problems in UAE against Pakistan. There is no shame in being beaten by South Africa at Centurion – this was their 13th victory in 17 Tests at the venue – but Sri Lanka barely put up a fight. Across two innings the batting lasted 86.5 overs; less than a day’s play.
    this shows they are declining

    Intikhab Alam kainda aye: Pakistan bowling attack can trouble England. Yesterday the bowlers couldn’t get out Shakibulbul and Nafees, Inti should not have opened his big mouth because, Strauss, Cook, Pietersen, Bell etc., are a million times better than bulbul and Nafees. Also, the Broad always performs well against Pakistan and in the spin department Swann is better than our Hans ka Jora of Ajmal and Rahman.

    Only in the T20 and ODI, Pakistan has some chances and that too, it won’t be like BD and SL.

    The English team is arriving in the UAE much ahead of the test match to acclamatize themselves in the UAE conditions, whereas our Jeeyalass would be sinking in the euphoria of winning against minnows, if and when they lose the coolness will be hot and there will be excuses that we didn’t get enough time to rest. Mano ya na mano yehi hona hai.

    khansahab

    Inti was duct taped after that comment so he couldn’t mention anything about batting. And, yes I do agree with you that if you a draw a match against one of the worst teams it is like a defeat.

    The reason Ajmal and Abdul Rahman the well known spinners are ineffective on a track like this is because, they are not aggressive spinners like Afridi and in a test match batsmen are in no hurry to take chances so you keep bowling like India’s Bapu Nadkarni 26 overs 25 maidens, one run and ZERO wickets, then obviously they will be ineffective. As regards Hafeez, he is not a specialist spinner he is an all-rounder in the shorter version of the game so you cannot blame him. Also, the field settings are absolutely defensive. The captain must set an attacking field and ask his bowlers to attack and let them take chances. In short it is a pathetic performance.

  271. #271 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 18, 2011 - 7:28 AM

    Ch2So4 fielding, Abdur Rahman dropped a simple catch of Shahadat and he got a second life.

    Every day 20 overs shall be lost because of dew and bad light so, all in all this match will be like a 4 day test match with Bangooz scoring around 350 in almost 2 days, Misbah & Co. will play for the next 2 days and personal records like centuries will be made and the match is a meaningless draw!

    If they win by any miracle then, you will see Munir dancing here on this blog and taunting us. Until then he shall be hiding in some pahaar kay ghaar may!

    Like some people are trigger happy, Umpire Tarapore’s trigger finger goes up very fast, he gave Sunny LBW and Ajmal is lucky to get this wicket in his bag because it was an inside edge and the replay confirmed and Sunny was shaking his head in dismay while going back. Umpiring is substandard in a pathetic match.

    http://herald.dawn.com/2011/10/21/the-funny-side-of-lahore-vs-karachi.html#comment-2061

    LOL@ the comparison – empty vessels make more sound – you will never find a Karachiite telling Karachi, Karachi hai but, a Lahore wala would say Lahore, La’hore aye. I am a Montrealer but, looking forward to see you on Jumeira Beach (by the way it is in Dubai).

    It is a very childish comparison by the author SRK and I wonder since when she has given asylum to Shah Mahmood Qureshi in Lahore? “Bakaoz” he is from Multan, not Lahore. And Hina Rabbani Khar was almost non-existent until she took over the post of Shah Mahmood Qureshi. It shows how people worship the rising sun. And which La’hore celebrities are we talking about here? Veena Malik, Meera, Reema, Nargas? Are we talking about popularity or finesse?

    The author has derived some insidious pleasure by not mentioning the so-called negative attributes in Altaf Hussain’s looks and his personality.

    can anyone help this guy

    Dear Abby,

    I have never written to you before, but I really need your advice. I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me.

    The usual signs; phone rings but if I answer, the caller hangs up. My wife has been going out with ‘the girls’ a lot recently although when I ask their names she always says, just some friends from work, you don’t know them.

    I try to stay awake and watch for her when she comes home, but I usually fall asleep.
    Anyway, I have never broached the subject with my wife. I think deep down I just did not want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to finally check on her around midnight, I hid in the garage behind my golf clubs so I could get a good view of the whole street when she arrived home from a night out with “the girls.”
    When she got out of the car she was buttoning up her blouse, which was open, and she took her panties out of her purse and slipped them on.

    It was at that moment, crouching behind my golf clubs, that I noticed a hairline crack where the grip meets the graphite shaft on my Taylor Made 460 driver.

    Is this something I can fix myself or should I take it back to the PGA Superstore?

    Signed…
    Concerned Golfer

    Pakistan test is heading for a draw, so seems like you are in good luck. 😉

    On the other hand, Sri Lanka lost badly to South Africa, but they played positively 😆 and their run-rate was faster then SA in both their innings.

    SL should be credited for this at least, because they played so fast against SA. Haar Jeet Tu Hota Rehta Hai, Par Taiz Khailna Zaroori 😉

    There is no such thing as ‘order of the day’ life is not like a restaurant where you have to restrict yourself to “soup of the day.’

    The point is, cricket is not a solo game like playing Solitaire on the computer, there are millions and millions of people watching them or at least taking interest in that game. If you play for yourself and don’t care about them, then they will not watch anymore. This is what this thread is about and this is what Dravid was highlighting the fact that, you have to respect the fans. They don’t come to watch your tuk, tuk, they want entertainment, they want result and not just T20 or ODIs but, test cricket is also entertainment. But, people like Misbah & Co. are making it dull, boring and a selfish game.

    If you play for yourself then it is not just negative but, you are actually insulting the millions and millions of fans and supporters. There are a few who takes pride in a draw when they could have actually won the match. Secondly, your logic of finding ways to say glass is half empty or half full is only a logic the reality is, the glass is carrying water only 50% of its capacity.

    he’s ascribing a statement to you

    you basically say that the main criteria for quality is quick runs.

    its like austrlai got out for 48 and lost

    he says check the runrates and see who scored fast- that team is the moral victor

    r u seconding this?

    in a 5o ovr match if a team gets bowled out for 100 runs in 10 overs and the other teasm chases it in 20 overs, you have 200 runs in 30 overs, a rr of 6.66, but its bad publicity, crowds dont want 100 ovr matches to be 30 over matches.

    what dravid is criticising is mishap style draws. look pk needed 250 odd in 50 overs but they scored 90 odd in 50 overs. thats negative!

    the discussion btw the 3 of u creates the impression that u 2 (ks and u)support aussie style 50 scores or sl’s 150 allout in 40 overs.

    I read ur statements about negative ckt and I know u dont endorse that.

    he may get caught but its very remote……….

    yesterday he had a phonic chat with kiyani.

    i sniff a deal.

    the problem is senate elections in march and rite now ppp will get a majority. that would mean half battle won- a scenario which is not acceptable to establishment i presume

    let me put to you in perspective key events in coming 20 days.

    1. SC will conduct petitions abt memogate. a canadian guy shafqat says that memeogate affects all pakis and his family memebers in army are being threatened. SC has granted his letter petition status and this guy has sent a BLANK CHEQUE to SC for processing fee. so who is he?
    another ijaz. he isnt a commoner.

    2. dec 23 mqm plans a rally in multan where faruq sattar will make key announcements on behalf of his boss and he has warned the govt to stop waders politics else there will be a long march.

    3. 25 dec- ik rally in karachi- an isi guy.

    4. jan 012- mush comeback which was scheduled for march 012.

    5. afaq ahmed released yesterday in karachi. a key player in karachi politics who may blunt mqm.

    there r other mini events also happening. if senate elections are held in march, then ppp is home. rite now its all dec, jan and feb.

    Afaq Ahmad’s wig is so obvious that it looks like a wig. Sometime ago, while I was with a friend of mine at a public place, I told him: “yar wig chahay kaisi bhee ho wig, wig hee lagti hai.” I didn’t realize there was a big Pakistani guy sitting in front of us, he turned back and gave me a dirty look, “I said, nai, nai, nai, aapki wig bilkul wig nahee lagti.” The woman sitting with him started laughing that must have embarrassed him and he didn’t turn back to see me again.

    Accha tou ye Afaq Ahmad is a chaabi khilari in paaltics? I dunno that. I never heard his name before bakaoz I am not into so much paalticks and this fella was arrested many years ago I guess?

    About the events that you have mentioned, I have read them and to me also it appears that Z & K have struck a deal. It was also apparent from Gillani’s face when he came out after a 3 hour long meeting with Kiyani, uskay Nuthnay 8mm Howitzer ki terha phoolay howay thay khushi say. Bakaoz Zardari’s exit is also his exit, then who will notice his 3 – 4 suits that he change everyday? And, that too designer suits.

    Muazziz sho’ra Javed Khan Aurangabadi and Zen Faridabadi,

    I think the terms of the Zardari deal are that he will return to Pakistan and get some kind of respectable exit.

    Zen,

    Very difficult to predict Musharraf’s role in Pakistani politics. The big media channels don’t give him coverage. Civil society dislikes him. His support is Karachi, pockets of Punjab and some dispersed educated people from all over Pakistan.

    I agree with your theory that Afaq is being used to pressurise MQM. We might see lawlessness again in KHI now that Afaq has been set free. He knows that he is being used like a pawn, rather he is being used like a prostitute, but he has no dignity and just wants to serve his personal vendetta against Altaf’s men.

    No one knows the result of the match, but scoring reasonably and playing positively is important.

    Not deciding that a match that can be won, should be drawn because one is too scared to lose.

    In the past 10-15 years every Test team ranked 1 has played with a run rate if 4+.

    I think Imran might be disappointed with the outcome of the next general election because a lot of people won’t want to vote for a party that has questionable and corrupt people on board.

    Mahmood Qureshi might be a “clean” politician but he has been associated with the most corrupt political party for many years. He wouldn’t settle for anything less than the position of no 2 in the party, whereas Imran should have kept him outside of his senior hierarchy.

    Pakistan cricket chief hopes Bangladesh will tour

    KARACHI: Pakistan’s cricket chief said on Sunday he hoped the Bangladesh cricket team would tour the country, after the 2009 attacks on Sri Lanka’s side brought international visits to a standstill.

    The comments from Zaka Ashraf came after a meeting with his Bangladeshi counterpart in Dhaka, with a tour possible in April next year if the visitors get a security clearance.

    “It’s a great news and we hope that Bangladesh tour us in April next year after getting security clearance from their government,” said Ashraf, chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board ( PCB).

    He added that “we will provide them with foolproof (security) arrangements.”

    Now, the game will begin. I have a feeling that he will be sacked if not in Memogate scandal, it will be based on the NRO implementation that will be more judicial and legal way to arrest him. Although his cronies are saying that as the President of Pakistan he is immune from being tried in the country? If the supreme court decision goes against him, then there will be a dangling sword upon his head till the day he will step down as President i.e., upon the maturity of his term and then he will be arrested.

    So Zardari’s billion dollar question and the poor man’s zero assets will be………. whether he will wait till Aug. 2013 to go to jail or, will he find a way out during the time he is in power? Most people believe that this visit to Dubai was an attempt to escape and he faked like Umar Akmal that he is sick. Now, upon assurances from Big Brother he is back but, in Pakistan everything is possible. So, we have to wait and see!

    Yaar kya Piddi aur kya Piddi ka Shorba?

    Right now, according to Zardari the nation is going through “KayOss” so who knows what will be happening in Pakistan after March 2012? Do you think people would be interested in Bangooz coming to Pakistan and playing cricket? I think this is Zaka’s fishful sinking. They will be more interested in Musharraf coming back and playing politics.

    Only way for that is dissolution of ASSEMBLY.yes big boss is here to screw his party.he gives a shit abt pk,bhutto clan etc.bakaz whenever he’ll go, he wont remain in pk.

  331. #331 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 19, 2011 - 4:59 AM

    Regarding Sehwag’s comment on Shoaib Akhtar, I watched the video for the second time and noticed a few things.

    1. See Shoaib Malik’s expression when Sehwag said, Wahan Tera Baap Kharaa hai….. He was kinda stunned.
    2. See Tendulkar’s reaction too….. imo, he should have been surprized because, he knew that he never hit a six in a test match against PK.
    3. Shoaib Akhtar, if he was standing with SRK on the stage, probably he may have laughed, but on the field I am 100% sure if Sehwag had said, Wahan Tera Baap Khara hai… he would have punched him on his face because, on the field he would have never taken that kinda comment from anyone. In Pakistan (perhaps even in India too) people get physical if you say: Ye Tere Baap ka hai or Wahan tera baap khara. Maa Baap kay naam per tou people get very, very serious.

    Besides, the biggest proof is on records so I wonder why Sehwag was boasting? In the end he should have said, I am joking….. but, he didn’t.

    The point that you are missing here in the debate on Misbah is, none of us are saying that players should hit sixes and fours, (which you think or call it as order of the day!), we were emphasizing the need of rotating the strike and keeping the over-all strike rate of the team just above 4 runs per over in test matches.

    Generally a player’s strike rate is always higher than his average, check it out for yourself, it is only Misbah’s strike rate is about 13% lower than his average, which is pathetic. And, the reason Misbah’s average is also inflated is because of the fact that he remained not out on various occasions and that is the result of selfish batting to show that he remained not out and everyone else got out. I dunno if this simple thing cannot get into your mind and your mind keeps telling you that we are vindicating or taking out some kinda revenge against Misbah? If that is the case then there is nothing one can do about it.

    Javed Khan …

    Misbah alone can not uplift Pakistan’s run-rate to above 4, there are so many other players in the team, why blame only one of them ❓

    Actually, Misbah is more of a consolidator, so his role is different, while other batters can play fast and increase run-rate if they want to. And please don’t tell me that other players are influenced by Misbah (the captain) he doesn’t impress himself upon others and all players are free to follow their own game.

    And I was appreciating Sri Lanka the other day, becuase even though they lost, at least they played fast. 😉

    2. There is a reverse gear in the car, you don’t always drive it in reverse gear. BUTTTTA you have parked your car in a garage, will you smash the wall and the house and get out from the other end? You go backwards, BAKAOZ, you have to go forward.

    3. You are a banker, right? Why do you compare your P&L account, Balance Sheet and other statements with the last 2 or 3 years of accomplishment? That is BAKAOZ you need to compare where you are going? Are you making a profit? Is it increasing? Or, are you making a loss and whether it is reducing or what?

    I can give you a hundred other examples where it is absolutely necessary that you have to go backwards in order to go forward, even in your mind you look up to think about the past and then remember your mistakes and correct them. That is going backwards in your mind. And, why do you keep stats? Is it for going back or going ahead? A change is always for a betterment and not for the worst.

    So, please discard these old theories and quotes by people, they are not Qura’an Shareef!

    I know about the Dubai ski tunnel and skating rinks but they are all indoor, there is a big difference when you are outdoors, its like being in a BIG FREEZER all the time. The lakes are frozen and people walk on it and put up a camp, stay all night make a hole in the snow and do ice hole fishing. Here is another link for it, Theossa would have enjoyed it. Last time he said, he will come here and we will go fishing. I used to do in Dubai, not just shore fishing but in the sea, trolling as well as the on-shore fishing. I have full fishing gears but, I need company.

    Fake can never be as good as original and outdoor, but it is second best option for us and we too can have some limited expereince of a fake-Canada. 😉

    I saw the ice-fishing pictures, and it looks ok. But you know what, I always get scared of standing on thin ice like frozen lake or river. Just in case the layer cracked, it is so scary thought.

    I can’t swim, so have this phobia kinda fear about sea/ water as well as frozen ice. Although, I enjoy swimming in pools, but not in sea and that too frozen. Some day, if life permits, Inshallah I will visit Canada and give you company for fishing.

    One major reason of Pakistan’s slow run-rate in tests is not having Umar Akmal & Shahid Afridi, trust me, if we had Akmal/ Afridi in this team our run-rate would have been much better, no matter how slow Mard-e-Momen Mard-e-Haq had played.

    So it is also partly Akmal and Afridi’s fault that we have this slow rate. 😉

    No but, jokes apart, we have all slow-batters and not any natural stroke-makers, while Hafeez seem out of touch for some time now (at least in batting).

    Did you hear Hina Rabbani Khar’s interview with that guy Moeed Pirzada or something? She kept repeating the word, PROACTIVE in every second sentence. It seems like we are all REACTIVE and she is the only one who is PROACTIVE. I guess she has read Dr. Edward De Bono’s books on Lateral Thinking. He has coined this word PO (Provocative Operation) and once I heard him citing and example that one of the BIG insurance companies borrowed this term and used it as a tool for selling insurance “PO people die before they die.” Meaning, they used to insure people with a clause that if they get terminally ill diseases like incurable cancer, AIDS etc., they used to give the full insured amount to them instead of giving it to the beneficiaries of the deceased, wo kis kam kay Marhoom kay liye?

    So, thats a good thought but, why was Hina Hinn Hinna-ing so much on Proactivism? Does she think we are all duds? Or, people before her were duddoos?

    Your analogy about UA and SA not in the team and that is the reason the run rate is slow is not correct because, for a moment even if you suppose they are in the team, what is the run rate now against BD in this match by lunch time? It is 2.8 and last ten overs only 1.8.

    Afridi and Umar play down the order not at number 1, 2 or 3. If Hafeez was there, it would have been slightly better but, because of MissAlly Captain the players are doing MissAaly batting and MissBahali Haq is happy with this!

    Why is everyone so much influenced by Missybaba, Ooops… I mean Mard-e-Haq ❓ He is not a very strong character so howcome he is influencing them all, and there are many other players (some seniors) why can’t these youngsters follow them is beyond me.

    I have no problem with what Sehwag said even if he said SRT hit a 6 when it was a 4, or 2 runs or whatever.

    Shoaib Akhtar’s entire career can be summed up like this- he gets frustrated, starts sh*t-talking with batsmen, loses his mind and gets smacked all over the park. He has lost many more matches this way than he has won.

    This swung a great distance, and another yorker which swung a lot was to Lara where the leg stump was uprooted and Lara fell on the ground.

    Yaar that is exactly the point. Slow batting is not bad provided the approach is caution and a batsman is skilled enough to set up a good platform for potential victory.

    All this team does is seek to draw matches.

    Plus, if a batsman can play pace, bounce, seam and swing (Dravid, Kallis) then slowness is forgiven. You know the batsman won’t be dismissed against good bowling. Unfortunately Misbah & Co don’t offer this guarantee.

    At the end of today Pakistan will get a few runs lead.

    Tomorrow they will try score 350+ but this slow batting might only produce 275.

    So it is possible that Bangladesh only have about 2/3rds of a day on day 5 to defend and ensure a draw.

    Well bad light stopped play and tomorrow Pakistan will probably not be able to score 275 runs, so in day 5 they will only have a lead of about 225.

    It is heading for a draw. A top 4 team would play for a result. If they play 75 overs tomorrow they could have tried scoring 300 runs and maybe score 100 runs in 20 overs on day 5. This would give Bangladesh an unachievable total of 350 to get from about 50 overs in which time they can look to get Bangladesh all out.

    But, is defensive Misbah going to carry on batting until lunch on day 5?

    Well this had to happen.

    It’s simple, if you are mediocre, you can just block balls and draw matches.

    You play a top 4 team, you lose.

    You play a bottom 4 team, your decent bowling attack wins you match.

    Your batting still can’t make 250 vs minnows in ODI and 350 vs minnow in Test.

    Javed Khan & Khansahab …

    I am addressing this comment to both of you together, because I know even if I addressed to one, the answer will come from another 😉

    On the subject of our thread, Rahul Dravid, first of all I fully agree with you that Dravid is respectable and an honourable guy and not only is he a useful player but more importantly a good human being. He has a spotless cricketing career and no doubt is a very valuable member of Team India, who has played many memorable knocks for his country.

    That being said, I have tried to find out a few, rather interesting, details about Dravid and this is what I came up with:

     Dravid is almost 39 years old (38 years and 342 days to be exact), this is older than Misbah, but he is still not retiring respectably. Although we so often say that Misbah is ‘Budha’ which he is, but I don’t find anyone using the word ‘Budha’ for Dravid, why ❓ Dravid is definitely better batsman then Misbah, but he is more ‘Budha’ than Misbah and this is a fact.

     Dravid is almost 39, Sachin is also going in 39, while Luxman is going in 38, still nobody speaks as to why these ‘Budhaz’ are still playing and blocking way for new batting talent for India, while in Pakistan, who have much less new proven and capable talent comparing to India, we still criticize Misbah and Younis for not giving chance to new guys.

     Dravid talking about faster strike rate and making Test cricket interesting is a “good gesture” no doubt, but it is only pep-talk and far from truth because his own natural game proves otherwise.

     Dravid has played slow for almost all his life and this is why he earned the title of ‘Wall’ in Indian team, so now this change of heart at the end of his career is more of an eye-wash.

     Dravid’s own life time S/R for Tests is only 42, while he has played 160 Test matches for India. His Test average is 53.

     Misbah’s life time S/R for Tests is 40 (2 less) while he has played 30 Tests for Pakistan. His Test average is 45 (8 less).

     Dravid’s life time S/R for ODIs is only 71, while he has played 344 ODI matches for India. His ODI average is 39.

     Misbah’s life time S/R for ODIs is 75 (4 higher), while he has played 89 ODIs for Pakistan. His ODI average is 42 (3 higher).

     Dravid’s life time S/R for T20s is only 117, while he has played 69 T20 matches. His T20 average is 28. (Dravid played only one T20 International, so I have taken his first-class T20 games for comparing purpose).

     Misbah’s life time S/R for T20s is 120 (3 higher), while he has played 72 T20 ‘first-class’ matches. His T20 average is 35. (7 higher). (In International T20s Misbah’s S/R is 113 and his average is 37).

     It’s strange Dravid is speaking of playing faster, because he himself was never considered for T20 matches in Indian team, while he was more of a liability even in IPL games.

    The above figures can be compared and the result is visible to all.

    On the other hand, if we speak of “context” then we will see that Misbah started his cricketing career much later which proves his relatively weaker confidence levels. Similarly, Misbah for Pakistan is more important then Dravid for India, because in Indian team Dravid is ably supported by Sachin, Luxman, Sehwag, and earlier Ganguly etc. who are equally good if not better, whereas for Pakistan, Misbah’s best options may be Younis & Hafeez. Another context is that India is playing most of their games at ‘home’ while Pakistan is lately playing only outside, yes Pakistan is recently playing few minnows but Indian team is also never avoiding playing with BD, Zimbabwe, WI, etc.

    I am not arguing that Dravid is anything less of a player then Misbah or that Misbah is better player, but what I want to impress is that if we have all this respect for Dravid and consider him one of the most respectable players in the history of cricket, then we can not say that Misbah is a complete waste of space and he should also get his due share of respect/ credit.

  419. #419 by Sentinel Prime on December 19, 2011 - 1:03 PM

    MM

    I respect Dravid but on a few occasions I have remarked that both him and SRT have been fined for ball tampering. So, they have not had spotless careers.

    The issue you have raised has been discussed recently and Zen and JAK have said along with me that, Dravid and Inzamam did not play aggressively, but their batting was always constructive.

    Inzamam never looked like he would be happy with a draw.

    Dravid is good because he absorbs pressure and plays good bowling well. Misbah looks very uncomfortable vs good bowling.

    Secondly, Dravid has done rescue jobs which have led India to famous victories.

    In terms of slowness I agree the differences between Dravid and Misbah are slim, but the fact that Dravid absorbs pressure against good bowling makes him a valuable player for India.

    I can assure you if Dravid was a flat track bully, then he would not have become a senior batsman in India. Indian batsmen can play difficult bowling, there is some merit in the selection of batsmen.

    As for his age, he is old but look at his performance vs England in 2011, it amazed even his most ardent fans. In fact his performance embarrassed SRT.

    Why complain if this 39 year old is playing swing and seam so well?

    Zen

    BTW we have not spoken much about Bangladesh’s poor fielding and how that has helped Pakistanis make good scores.

    Today someone dropped Younis.

    So, this luxury will not happen vs England.

    It is nonsense to discuss about Pakistan’s good performances in 2011 because they came against poor teams.

    Sri Lanka was ranked above them in ODI’s but they are going back to their minnow days.

    Umar Gul has had a good year but he rarely performs well against good teams.

    Similarly, Hafeez will not be treated with respect vs the top 4. I think Cheema and Junaid will be the key bowlers for Pakistan vs England.

    Cat is out of the bag.

    Pakistan are using “cautious” strategy.

    “Cautious” batting on instruction from captain and management.

    Taufeeq defends Pakistan’s cautious batting

    Taufeeq Umar, the Pakistan batsman, defended his side’s cautious batting approach on the third day of the Mirpur Test, saying that the plan was to first get close to Bangladesh’s 338 without losing too many wickets. “I think we were on the back foot [initially] and we would have been in deeper trouble had we lost two, three early wickets,” Taufeeq said. “We wanted to get closer to the [Bangladesh] runs and then see how it stands.

    We wanted to stay at the wicket and wait for the bad deliveries. I think we were quite successful. Now we are in a good position and we will accelerate tomorrow and see how the things are going.”

    The safety-first batting strategy has worked well for Pakistan so far as they have won five out of nine Test matches this year. Taufeeq, whose patient accumulation at the top of the order has characterised this approach, made 130 today, his third century in 2011. He has made 828 runs this year, the most by a Pakistan batsman in 2011.

    Taufeeq said that his batting style was dictated by the instructions of the team management. “It all depends on what the team needs from you. If the captain and the coach say that you have to survive the new ball and then play shots, you have to do that.”

  445. #445 by Sentinel Prime on December 19, 2011 - 4:08 PM

    MM

    I think this will now satisfy your doubts as to where the instructions for slow batting are coming from?

    Taufeeq has admitted it is from captain and management.

    So, captain, coach are definitely involved.

    Your detailed comparison between Misbah and Dravid has proved one thing that, there are BOOK-KEEPERS and there are CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS.

    Book-keepers only record transactions in a ledger and that is what they do all their life. They cannot see beyond that ledger.

    Chartered accountants use the same info, same figures but then they analyze and interpret the results there of. Which you are not doing, pata nahee tum kaisay banker ho? Bakaoz CA’s tou Balance Sheet bana tay hain magar Bankers ussi Balance Sheet ko analyze ker kay uska teeya paancha ker detay hai by working out ratios and tests etc., aur CA’s ki window dressing ko expose ker detay hain. You are actually disappointing me by presenting a stack of info and no “pro-active” thinking involved in deriving the results from that info.

    Yes Dravid is older than Misbah, but Dravid is not the captain of the team now, he was before but, not now bakaoz you need a young captain to take the team into future and lead the team by an example, and inspire them to play positive cricket. What is Misbah’s role here? Negative and Negative only.

    LOL @ comparing the averages and strike rate of Dravid with Misbah. Dravid played 5 times more matches than Misbah and you are saying his average is only 8 less ! Wah kya baat ki tum nay. If a player plays 30 matches and another plays 160 matches you think it means the same?

    Tasleem Arif Marhoom scored a double century against Australia and his average is 62.62 and he played only 6 matches. So, from your analysis he is better than Dravid, Tendulkar, Miandad, Inzamam and so many others, right? Complacency aur ignorance bhee kya cheez hai, vo truck wala message sahi hai phir

    Everyone is asking the same question you’ve asked, that why is Imran accepting the trash now? Actually they are joining him and he has realized that politics in Pakistan is not a snooker or, squash championship, its a team game. To get the masses support you, have to accept the players who perform. Unfortunately in Pakistan, especially in Pakistan there is only TRASH AND NOTHING BUT TRASH.

    Are you expecting people like Moin Qureshi the former interim Prime Minister of Pakistan? He was the VP of World Bank an educated person and people like him are very rare or, they are not interested in politics. We all know how bad our politicians are? And, then there is Army. So, who do you want to be in Imran’s Party? I think Shah Mahmood Qureshi is a good choice and he is clean, educated, experienced etc. He should get in Maliha Lodhi in his party and the likes of her to represent the women of Pakistan and not like that Sialkot di Mujj….. jis noo Alla Taala nay aqal V dee tay Ussan V.

    On Sehwag’s video, I had a delayed reaction (forget about Malik’s reaction) and after knowing everything, I realized it is very bad on part of Sehwag and the media to talk about Shoaib Akhtar’s BAAP on a TV show that is watched by millions. Personally you don’t like Akhtar so you said, I don’t care bakaoz Pakastan lost many times because of him. That is not the point or the issue here. The point is, ridiculing someone behind him to please and appease your masses is one hell of a sinister thing and cracking a joke like that IF Akhtar was present and sitting among the audience or standing with him on the stage is different. But, there was something more than what meets the eye.

    And, why am I saying this? Bakaoz when Akhtar mentioned about Tendulkar in his book – whatever he said was blown out of proportion and a big fuss was created by the Indian media – If the same thing (what Sehwag did) Shoaib Akhtar had done, there would have been a storm in the tea cup. I wasn’t expecting this from Sehwag. If I see a few more incidents like this from him, then obviously my opinion about Sehwag will change. So far, I have been respecting him and supporting him that he is a very good batsman. I have liked Wasim Akram during his playing days but, when I came to know about his crookedness in cricket i.e., betting, setting plus many, many other things that shows he is a spineless, gutless and characterless man I detest him. Same is the case with Salman Butt, Aamir, Asif, Kamran Akmal, Shoaib Malik or other corrupt players. To a much lesser degree I dislike Misbah because of his tuk tuk and negative cricket only.

    There are 140 overs remaining in this match.

    Pakistan will want Bangladesh to chase at least 300 from 70 overs. So this means that Pakistan bat all day on day 4 and make 350 from 70 overs which they will not do.

    In 3 days they have played less than 210 overs because of bad light so they are going at less than 70 overs a day.

    JAK,

    So what’s this thing about Sehwag? I too saw the video, but isn’t that just an expression in Hindi, and not exactly calling Akhtar’s real BAAP, but to say someone, Tendulkar is BAAP to Akhtar isn’t that just an expression to say he is bigger. I think it is used regularly in friendly conversations.

    What am I missing?

  480. #480 by NewGuy on December 19, 2011 - 11:29 PM

    Tendulkar practices throw downs in the net, this is nothing new. Gary Kirsten used to do this for everyone, and he said Tendulkar always wanted “ekstra” throw downs even after everyone is done, since he wants his practice to be perfect. I guess the new coach Dunkin is a budha who cannot throw down for ever like Gary, so he must have some little ekstra help.

    What you are missing is, please read my comments again, IF Sehwag had said this in front of Akhtar it is a totally different thing, but he was exaggerating that he said this to him on the field during the match. Which I cannot believe because, Akhtar is a very tempermental guy and in the heat of the moment he would have retaliated very strongly. It is not like what you have said, “Tendulkar is BAAP to Akhtar” it is a different thing when you say, WO TERA BAAP KHARA HAI…… When I was in school, in a slightly tense situation, one of the guys, much bigger than me said something similar, “Wo tera baap hai?” I punched him on his face in a second. I said, BAAP ka naam leta? And, I still remember that and I know that guy could have hit me very badly because he was at least 4 inches taller than me at that time and much bigger and fatter than me, — I am slim 😉 — but, he got scared of me till the last day in the school.

    In a friendly situation if you say Oh BC chup ker, the guy will laugh it out or, he will take it easy but, in a more tense situation if someone says, “Abay Jaa…” that is enough to create a fight. Its a kinda provocation and depending on the situation, oh you are telling me, ABAY? Whereas, abay means nothing at all and, we use it a zillion times in our daily conversation.

    So, imo Sehwag was just telling a lie thru his teeth. If that was the case, he should have said in the end, I am joking. But, he made millions of people believe that it is a true incident, whereas that was not the case.

    Similarly, if you think its not a biggy then, upon Akhtar’s mentioning in his book, “Kay Tendulkar mujh say derta thaa…” So, what is the big deal? Why everyone got so pissed off against Akhtar and canceled the launching of his book etc., etc.

    JAK,

    OK, but cricketers from both sides say things like that, so I think it is par for the course, I am not supporting Sehwag, just saying it goes around.

    For instance, lets see, Afridi said something about Indian being small minded, Gambhir said something about Pakistanis, Akhtar said Tendulkar is scared of him, Afridi said Tendulkars legs were trembling (I still chuckle at this because we say it as a joke to indicate when someone is scared, but not in literary meaning), then Sehwag here in this video said something.

    There was also the whole MC BC thing with Akhtar and Harbhajan.

    Sehwag also said Bengaldesh is an ordinary team and they cannot get 20 wickets, he recently said no matter what you tell #10 and #11 they will do whatever they want, so on .. the point is Sehwag may be a brilliant bat, but as you yourself have said so many times, these cricketers are not scholars, he speaks his in his jat ways quite often. Do we expect him to know etiquette, Dhoni knows it, because he has hired a PR manager and an English teacher, I guess not every cricketer has got one.

    I guess Sehwag is telling a lie, he probably thinks it is a joke, as I said I am not defending, but I am quite oblivious to all these things.

    What Afridi said, what Sehwag said all do not matter to me, because they all say so many things, we cannot worry about them.

  485. #485 by NewGuy on December 20, 2011 - 2:02 AM

    Virat Kohli scored a fast hundred against the CA chairmans team in the 3 days game. Rohit Sharma also made a well made 47. Both of them are competing for the same spot. I think Rohit is technically better than Kohli, but Kohli has temperament to stay on. He just might edge out in the Test spot. This is a shame. I would like to see both of them in, but there is no spot for both until one of the big three retires.

    Thanks for understanding my point. The only thing is media plays a very important role in making the whole thing like a BIG PROBLEM or they can cover up things or, ignore things if they want to.

    Pakistan and Bangladesh are playing a very boring Test match, neither side is making an initiative for a result. Already 3 days have gone and still two full innings are not complete. Will we see a result in next two days? Possible if Bangladesh collapse in second innings.

    Every day 20 overs game is gifted to mother nature because of the fog. So, you can say only 90 to 100 overs game left not 2 days.

    Zaheer Khan bowled six over for 29 runs, he doesn’t look fit or in form, Indians may be in for another England type of bashing in this series. You cannot win Test matches without having bowlers for taking 20 wickets. As of now only new bowler Umesh Yadav looks fit and can take wickets. Vinay and Mithun are on board because of god father Kumble, as these “fast” bowlers bowl slower than Kumble did with his spin.

    Lets wait and see whether ZK just loosening up or he is unfit. To me, he is almost finished. They need to look at grooming younger bowlers, and being young is not good enough, because Mithu and VK are also youngstas, but they are not beauties.

    If you agree that Misbah and Dravid are both slow, then you can accept that Misbah also takes pressure so well, be it against good or bad bowling.

    If capability of playing against swing and seam is a criteria to continue playing then I guess Sachin/ Dravid and Luxman can play beyond 50 at least.

    Regarding playing slow by the Pakistani batsmen there ‘may’ be instructions from captain & management to this effect, but do we ever blame Mohsin or anyone else for that matter other then only Misbah for this ❓

    About your recent comments that Pakistan will be crushed by mighty England, well I remember similar predictions when we were to play Sri Lanka but you had to change your views about Sri Lanka after they disappointed you and could not defeat Misbah’s team. 😉

    I agree that England is a good side and they “MAY” beat Pakistan, but why are we so excited about it ❓ 😀

    Is it because we “want” to see Pakistan loose just to see Misbah suffer or is it because living in UK we now support them more.

    Lastly, your darling Misbah, have scored another 50 and his average as well as strike rate will further increase. 😉

    A cricket fan on cricinfo is not a cricket god that whatever he says is from the Holy Book and we should accept it. So, whatever he says is his own tunnel vision. And, there could be many more purblind nocturnals like him who cannot see the light and they will always be saying and arguing that a dark, dull, boring and a gloomy day is better than a sunny day!

    Btw, why are you placing your may inside the brackets or inverted commas? Are you trying to play safe like Misbah? That is only to prove later that I said, may be and not definitely. And, what is the point of doing this and then adding so many icons? If you want to play safe then, you should play with a poker face and let everyone guess where you stand.

    I think you will never understand the fine differences between two different things and two different people also you will never be able to distinguish the difference between degree and kind. In your books, UnnNees (19) Bees (20) ka difference koi difference nahee, ye tou chalta hai.

    Do you know the difference between humans and apes is not that of kind but in degrees vohi 19 – 20 ka farq. But, that one degree difference makes them apes and us, humans. In the same way insaano may bhee darjay aur very fine degree ka farq hai jo kisi ko accha ya bura bana deta hai. Samajh aye kay nahee ayee?

    Zaheer Khan is definitely the best medium fast bowler in the Indian team but, I would never rate him among the top class fast bowlers list. Fast bowlers shelf life is very short. Therefore, grooming of talented fast bowlers from a very tender age is absolutely necessary and they should be inducted into the team from the age of 17 or 18 max. If batsmen can make their international debut at 15 – 16 why not fast the bowlers?

    I do understand the point that the frame, body structure and muscles require a certain period of time to develop fully but, by introducing them early (without giving them too much importance that they look like McGrath, Thompson or Wasim) in the team will improve their mental strength which is very important. Instead of 17 – 18 some bowlers are introduced in the team when they have passed their prime.

    Mohammad Aamir is no doubt a young talented player but, he ruined his career and we all know how and why? Let us not discuss him, I am only citing him as an example for our case study that fast bowlers should be discovered, identified, trained and selected from very early on. Like in gymnastics they have to identify the talent when they are 3 years old and they train them, groom them and teach them to aspire for perfection and gymnasts are at their prime when they are 14-16 and are done and dusted when they cross 20.

    Based on what I have said above, I agree with you that Zaheer has passed his prime, he may get wickets but, that is another matter. I am talking about putting this practice of selecting the fast bowlers in place and then training, grooming, harnessing them before they enter the international arena must be a pre-requisite.

    This comment is dedicated to you and your profession:

    One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the road-side
    eating grass.

    Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate.

    He asked one man, “Why are you eating grass?”

    “We don’t have any money for food,” the poor man replied. “We have to eat grass.”

    “Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I’ll feed you,” the lawyer said.

    “But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree.”

    “Bring them along,” the lawyer replied.

    Turning to the other poor man he stated, “You may come with us, also.”

    The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, “But sir, I also have a wife and six children
    with me!”

    “Bring them all as well,” the lawyer answered.

    They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine.

    Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, “Sir, you are too kind.
    Thank you for taking all of us with you.”

    The lawyer replied, “Glad to do it. You’ll really love my place. The grass is almost a foot
    high.”

    Let me make your day special, I always had faith in your cricketing knowledge, and I agree that Misbah ‘may’ be slow in Tests, but his slow game is what is required for Pakistan for now.

    While on bankers and chartered accountants, I don’t think chartered accountants can be good corporate bankers, because all they do is only number crunching and window dressing and they lack marketing approach which is basic instinct of any successful corporate banker.

    And it is not exactly 5 times the difference between 160 and 30 matches, but you will be surprised that the difference between 6 matches (Tasleem Arif) and 30 matches is exactly 5 times, what a coincidence. A good bookkeeper will always catch you with figures mistakes, so be careful. 😀

    BTW, just like cricket, Corporate Banking has also changed dramatically over the years and although basic rules and principals are the same, but believe me we don’t do it anymore how it was done in good old days. 😉

    Most of the Cricinfo team is Indian and I have remarked this before too, that their coverage is a little biased against Pakistan.

    The way their commentators write, it becomes obvious that they feel despondent whenever Bangladesh loses a wicket and if the umpires have made a wrong decision they tend to use overly critical language.

    I may be wrong but this is the impression I get- it is regrettable and leaves a bad taste in the mouth. At the end of the day it is a global website and what should be the response to this? Should Pakistanis make their own website? If it could be done easily it would have happened by now.

    Due to injustices against certain places and a culture of mediocrity, favouritism and nepotism I am not in total support of the current Pakistan team or cricket administration. But, I don’t have extra sympathy for Bangladesh either because I am not inherently anti Pakistan.

    From a fan on Cricinfo:

    “Here is something for you to ponder on. Between Azhar, Younis, Misbah, Asad and Adnan 600 balls were played. They scored 271 runs combined. If we calculate run a ball, 54 overs approximately went maiden. Will Pakistan be able to beat a tougher opponent like England with such performance?”

    The answer my friend is NO, but some people are quite content for Pakistan to hover around no 5 or no 6 in Test cricket.

    Physical attraction happens with people of various cultures and backgrounds but when you are watching a film you don’t have the same level of tolerance.

    Katrina is very nice to look at but I would much prefer watching a photograph or clip rather than a movie. Plus, why also watch the 100s of ugly men and women in the movie just to watch one nice looking girl?

    I used to watch Indian movies with family, it is like a family occasion but now hardly any of them are “family material”.

    That’s what I am saying, that top ranked teams have scored at a run rate of 4.

    I am sure if you find the average run rate of Australia, South Africa, India and England in the past 10 years it will be 3.5+.

    Plus, also take into account that top 4 are playing mostly against top 4 whereas Pakistan is playing minnows.

    To score at 3 runs per over vs minnows is laughable.

    Absorbing pressure is not just about slow batting. It is also about what happens after slow batting. Dravid bats slowly, agreed, but he can score against good bowling. If the situation arises he will hit boundaries and successfully place the ball between gaps. Misbah doesn’t do that and looks incompetent against swing. Misbah’s strike rate remains the same, his average remains the same irrespective of match situation.

    Dravid plays with a plan, he anchors the innings and he takes responsibility on his shoulders. Misbah wants to block only and let half batsmen like Afridi and Razzaq do the work.

    I don’t know why you are using Dravid and Laxman and SRT to discuss Misbah. There is no comparison. Despite their flaws, Younis, Yousuf and Inzamam are all superior to Misbah and I will not even compare them with him.

    Talent wise Misbah is like Adnan Akmal, or maybe Sammy of West Indies. I won’t even put him in the Ashwin or Mitchell Johnson category because they have shown good batting skills recently.

    I will burst out laughing next time you try to compare Misbah with Dravid. Dravid is a one man army, Inzamam was a constructive pressure player and match winner, Laxman is a pressure player and match winner, Misbah is a minnow basher and a half batsman.

    I’ve always complained about the uncouthness of Pakistani players and I recently remarked that Shoaib Akhtar has a big mouth. But, what Sehwag said was said in an official function and it looked distasteful. There is a difference between what you can say in the heat of the moment on the field and in some gathering. He could have altered his words or described the event in a softer manner but he seemed to take pride in insulting Akhtar.

    Tendulkar should have shrugged at this but even he seemed to take this well.

    Bal Thackeray wants Veena to be sent back to Pak

    Karachi: Bal Thackeray has demanded that Veena Malik and all other Pakistani artists be sent back to their country.

    The Shiv Sena supremo lashed out against Malik in his editorial in the party’s organ Saamna.

    Veena Malik is a blot on our country“s culture. Who is Veena Malik? Why is so much ruckus being raised about her?” The News International quoted Thackeray as saying.

    “She goes missing for some days and it appears to be a publicity stunt
    ….sometimes she does obscene acts in Bigg Boss and sometimes she gets herself photographed in the nude for magazines,” he said.

    Veena is not such a big actress from Pakistan that we should go on praising her,” he added.

    Thackeray also expressed his anger on other artists from her country performing in Bollywood.

    “There is a trend in Bollywood to hire Pakistani artistes. Pakistani actors come to India and do not want to leave. People from Pakistan come to India to watch cricket matches and suddenly vanish. It’s difficult to say whether they work for terror outfits or not,” he said.

    “On the other side, Pakistani government doesn’t even give visas to our artistes. There is a virtual ban on entry of Amitabh Bachchan, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle in Pakistan

    “Dolly Bindra says, Veena Malik has ISI connections. If that is so, the person who gave her visa should be jailed,” he added.

    He signed off this editorial saying that ‘we should clean up our country and send Veena Malik to hell’.

    speaking of lawyers, a murder trial took place in a court. prosecution presented a cop as an eye witness. the cop identified the accused as the culprit.

    defence’s lawyer questioned the cop. lets have a read

    defence : u say u saw him over there. but the place u say was a little farther from u. so how can u be so sure it was him.

    cop: my fellow cop was standing a little ahead of me. he told me it was him.

    defence: I see. so you trust him?

    cop: yes

    defence: so you keep your belongings in a locker? rite

    cop: yes

    defence: you keep it locked always, dont you

    cop: yes

    Defence : so if u trust ur partner so much, why u keep it locked, you shouldnt be concerned? doesnt this show mistrust

    there was a hush. people in the court felt cop was cornered and defence team felt they had dented the prosecution’s case

    cop; well u see the floor we use we share it with LAWYERS AND WE DONT TRUST THEM. SO THATS WHY WE LOCK OUR BELONGINGS.

    A man was chosen for jury duty who really wanted to be dismissed from serving. He tried every excuse he could think of but none of them worked. On the day of the trial, he decided to give it one more shot. As the trial was about to begin, he asked if he could approach the bench.

    “Your Honor,” he said, “I must be excused from this trial because I am prejudiced against the defendant. I took one look at the man in the blue suit with those beady eyes and that dishonest face and I said ‘He’s a crook! He’s guilty!’ So, your Honor, I cannot possibly stay on this jury!”

    With a tired annoyance the judge replied, “Get back in the jury box, you fool. That man is the defendant’s lawyer.”

    What does this mean? If corruption is common, so much so that people are sympathetic with Amir, then we need to know about who has links with bookies and fixers.

    Are we supposed to accept reluctantly that match fixing is common and we have to live with it?

    Either don’t show him sympathy because what he has done amounts to disgracing his country and disgracing the sport and it is extremely serious, or accept it is commonplace and release him from prison. If a middle way has to be adopted, what are we to assume?

OK sir, Thank you sir, I am ignorant and naive not to know this fine intricacies and complexities of the game.

    You have to read my comment again on book-keepers and chartered accountants, I have said that a banker can expose chartered accountant’s window dressing, so what are you trying to tell me? Btw, marketing approach has nothing to do with accounting. It is not ‘just’ the corporate banker who does the analysis of the BS when presenting his credit proposal for approval but, it is the credit department who are specialized in it, when they are satisfied with the analysis supplemented by the market report and the project report and the customer’s net worth and repayment ability etc., it is then they approve the proposal.

    When I wrote there 5 times more (30×5=150) I knew that 160 would be more than 5 times it was just a rough figure to give you some idea and not to go into decimals of 5.3333333333333333333 there is no audit going on here and you are sounding more like an auditor here than a corporate banker. “Once an auditor, always an auditor.”

    Sorry to stuff foreign words in English, faux pas is pronounced as foo-Paa and it means a social blunder. Meera often does social blunders and act innocent so I guess is she doing it deliberately to get more attention and publicity or is she really so dumb?

    There was a little country boy called Johnny he went to a city school where kids his age think they are smart. They thought Johnny was a simpleton because, when the placed two coins (nickles and dimes) on the table (dime is 10 cents and smaller, nickles is 5 cents and bigger in size) and asked Johnny to pick up the one which has more in value and Johnny used to pick up the 5 cents and go. They all used to laugh at him. To prove this to other friends that Johnny is a simpleton, they started calling him again and again and playing the same trick on him and each time Johnny would pick up the 5 cents and go. This became a kinda entertainment for them.

    One day the teacher called Johnny and said, Johnny are you really stupid that you don’t know the difference between nickles and dimes? And, don’t you know that a dime is twice the value of nickles? Johnny replied, you also think that, I am stupid? If I had picked up the dime on the first instance, how many times would they have asked me to come and pick up the coin which has more value?

    So, that is the point and that is my question. Meera is neither beautiful nor sesky she looks more like dumb blonde painted in brown colour. Because of her deliberate stupidities, serendipities and idiosyncrasies she became more famous otherwise who would have given her so much publicity and importance?

He was playing painfully slow like Misbah and Misbah wasted 3 overs to allow Adnan to complete his fifty and he added only 3 runs in that time. When he wanted to improve run rate after his 50, knowing that the declaration might come, he got out and how? He wanted to be aggressive and was STUMPED.

    Pakistan is going to win this Test match with a big margin, again

    In many ways this sort of vindicates their safety first strategy. I can’t say for sure, I agree with these tactics, at the same time like JK, KS, and Zen, I can’t also say they should throw away this strategy and go for broke. Perhaps some of the batsmen could be aggressive, while others build. Say for instance, get in Umar Akmal and one more attacking player into the team, give them license to go for their shots and score at fast pace, but guarantee their place if even they fail a couple of innings, so long as they play that role at least once every while.

    This is the role Sehwag plays in Indian team. He has the license to go for shots, because if he succeeds then the team benefits, the middle order that follows then capitalize, if he fails then there are people to consolidate.

    Similar strategy could mean the team still has a healthy run rate.

    Anyhow, they are still winning, and I can see how they will adopt this strategy to England as well. I can’t say for sure England will roll over Pakistan in UAE, because England seamers need swinging conditions to move the ball, and their batters play well in such conditions, while they don’t adapt well into low and slow wickets. Reverse swing is important, I think Pakistan has advantage there.

    I think it will closer series that most people think. You should not wish Pakistan to lose against England, just to see Misbah discredited. Even if Pakistan fail against England no one will blame Misbah, they will simply point to the fact England is Test #1 team and they rolled over Australia and India, two stronger Test teams.

  579. #579 by NewGuy on December 20, 2011 - 4:08 PM

    KS,

    I already replied to Javed about Sehwag, that I don’t expect these cricketers to know diplomacy, just because they have learned to score runs or take wickets do not make them very worldly wise or educated.

  580. #580 by NewGuy on December 20, 2011 - 4:19 PM

    JK,

    Zaheer is not in the league of a top fast bowlers when we think about all time greats. However, he has in the last 3 years improved his strike rate to same class as top bowlers. His overall strike rate is poor, and he may end his career again with poor strike rate.

    I agree with you that fast bowling is hard and it needs to be groomed, also the shelf life is so short. This is why many Indians bowlers reduce their pace, in order to sustain a longer career. Even if they don’t play international, many of them make a living playing first class matches, and now IPL.

    This is a career for a lot of them.

    In Pakistan however, if one bowls medium or slow, he will not be accepted or recognized, so in order to get accepted they bowl fast.

    There is this culture where every Indian boy wants to be a batsman. In India, cricket is all about batting. When we used to play gully cricket, this is how it was, even today, this is how it is. Everyone wants to know when they can bat, and when they get to bat, they want to keep on batting for as long as they want. No one takes up bowling by choice.

    Only people who take bowling is because they do not get chance to bat in school cricket, or gully cricket, because there are better batter than them.

    In other cultures, like Australia, England, and South Africa, it is different, because there is a culture of sport. Cricket is not great on athleticism, especially for a batsman, you don’t need the fitness of a runner, swimmer, or footballer.

    Fast bowlers need to be like runners, swimmers, or footballers. This culture exists in Western world. One reason is facilities and grass root level ability to play many athletic activities.

    In India and Pakistan, there is hardly open grounds available for children to go out and play. Most of them play on the streets in front of their homes, in crowded gali’s.

    bhai masnavi is around 60000 verses,

    aap ne gadhe ka sawaal kiya to ek aur masnavi gadhe par

    ek gadha shahi munshi ke pass rehta tha. munshi was very kanjoos. gadha har waqt udaas rehta tha ke usey achi treatment nahi milti

    ek din munshi ne tung aakar usey kaha “mein tujhe badshah ke shahi astabl mein bheij raha hun”

    gadhaa khush jasiey misbah ul butt captaan banney par khush tha

    baharhaaal

    gadha jab shahi astal pohancha to shashdar rehgaya.

    aala kwalty ka chara, masseurs ki bharmaar, saaf jaga

    gadha bola ” munshi go to hell, mein ab yehi rahunga”

    ab roz ek malishya gadhe ko massage karey, aala chaara miley, gadhaa 5 star life guzaar raha tha

    but ek dinnnnnnnnnn………….

    bugle baja, alal subah tension. dhadra dhar ghodrey baahar nikaley ja rahe threy aur unpar fauji sawaar ho rahey they.

    gadhaa pareshan ke kya maajra hae. magr koi uski baat nahi sun raha tha, thodi dair mein aadha astabl khali hogaya

    gadhaa sara din sochta raha but kuch samjh na aaya

    achank shaam ko ghodrey waapis aaye. kisi ki taang kuti hui, kiisi ka kaan kissi ka khoon bah raha tha. sarey ghodrey astabl mein aake girey aur maalishyee unko dawaai lagane lagey.

    itifaqqun ek maalishya gadhey ke pass se guzra. gadhey ne pocha ye kya masla hae

    maalishye ne tap kar bola ” aaj jung ka phela din thaa. aadhi fauj ladney gae thi. kal baaqi aadh ifauj jaegi aur jo janwar rah gaen hain wo ladrney jaenge”

    gadhey ki halat kharab aur rona shuru

    jab bohot shor kya to kisi ne pocha kya takleef hae

    gadha bola ” mujhe munshi ke pas jana hae”

    ab ye kahani kahan fit hoti hae, ye bloggers pe chodra. ghaur karo to samjh ajaega key mishap ka mamla kya hae

  582. #582 by Zen on December 20, 2011 - 4:28 PM

    newguy

    i agree with u that mishap has an alibi that england is no1 so he wont get blame for losing against england even if he loses.

    u admit that pk should take more risks specially with weak opposition like BD to become a more potent team but its disgusting to see them being so timid. seriously do u think such an approach wpould result in losing against BD?

    but this mindset of being overly cautious is toxic to growth of a team in the longer run and sometimes failure is the only way to expose shortcomings!

    magr munshiul haq darta hae shikast se, takleef se , mehnat se

    so wo gadhe ki tarh munshi ki 4-6 level kutiya mein khush hae

    aur ye almiya baresagheer pak o hind ki cricket mein badarjae uttam maujud hae

    On the topic of CricInfo being biased and Indian

    I wish they were properly biased, the majority of commentators and writer are Indians. This is true.

    They try to do this being impartial type of role by criticizing the Indian team, sometimes more than the other team. That is another form of bias though, it is veiled form of bias where they try to show impartial, so they criticize the team they like may be even more in an effort to do so.

    I would actually prefer them to be opened biased, if they are anyway accused of being biased, they why bother with faking impartiality, just go on and show your true colors.

    At least, that is the American way, I like how it is done here, make no bones about it.

    You have to have the horses for the course.

    I am referring to Pak-Bangla Test, if Pakistan can make 400+ and 500+ and roll over Bangladesh easily in five days, what is the haste? It makes it boring for the viewers, but they are re-building, they are practicing how to do this, so they can do this against top teams.

    Although as I said they should mix up some fast scores in the middle, so that not everyone is a slow couch. For instance, some of these guys like Shafique is batting in the 40 strike rate, this is criminal for the paying public. No one wants to watch someone scoring at 2 runs an over hundred.

    India has such a large population, so every kind of media is there to support every kind of person

    This is why this Veena masala is going on. I wish they would not bother with this type of thing.

    But even over here in the US, sleaze queens like Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan gets publicity. Who she is marrying, who she is divorcing, etc is topic. Doesn’t mean every one is following. But you can’t escape it, since it is staring at you every where, on Yahoo home page, on Google, on TV screens at air port, on Grocery store tabloids staring at you while you wait at counter. So on ..

    Veena is following the footsteps of Kardashian and Lohan, only she is in a poor country and her play ground is smaller, rewards are smaller, but their are par for her course.

  594. #594 by Zen on December 20, 2011 - 4:57 PM

    question is where is pk cricket heading?

    does anyone seriously believe here that this approach will make them 1,2 or 3 in test cricket.

    can this -ve approach be effective in south africa, australia or england

    i dare say noooooooooooooooooo……………..

    series against BD is ideal for experimentation- to the contrary it was all caution and fear and lack of enterprise.

    at least auusies realise ponting must go as i pasted a link here.

    so why not think and explore beyond retirees and believe its now or never.

    ths is just a mirage and in the longer run this team will go back- sorry i dont see any prosperity!

    shes just minting money like chicks u mentioned

    i gave example of paris hilton which i agree wasnt perfect but ks wasnt in sync with me.

    in his view, veena was an ambassador and gave negative prtrayal in an alien society. i disagree

    iam agree she should be ignored but this hyper coverage is increasing her price

    u have to take rfisks even with mediocrites

    if u cant it means u dont have the resources or hr department has miserably failed

    i believe the latter. in pk its abundant talent,only needs bold leadership and self belief.

    come to think of it, where was england 10 years ago

    rome wasnt built in a day

    even with the current crop of players, most of them had sour experiences via south africa and australia, even WI.

    but they persisted and finally they r now on the throne.

    talent wise this england team is not as sklilled if we compare it with aussie side 90’s and last decade or WI before that.

  597. #597 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 20, 2011 - 5:16 PM

    Yar, I am sure no Pakistani would like to see their side losing, the reason KS, you and I may have said this kay PK should lose to England or will lose against England is based on the present performance of the team. I have also said that in the UAE PK always plays better, whatever the reasons may be but they do play better (except for that humiliating defeat against Australia in Sharjah) so, they may give England a tough time and we also know that the English side is not the best side, being number one means nothing to me. Those ratings are silly.

    The only thing is Munir will try to catch a fart using a fishing net and then unleash his taunting that you were saying this or that. He may have forgotten that he has aired similar views and expressed same comments about PK losing the match and the series when Ijaz Butt was the Chairman so that he should be removed from the PCB chairmanship. Usss say tou bair hai laiking missy say humdardee, balkay pyar hai pyar.

    NewGuy yes there are horses for courses but these are flate trake bullies and they are not horses but mules and asses so they will not change, Badshahon ka Badshah, Shahenshah-e-tuk tuk, will not change his technique against England, in fact vahan tou aur zore laga ker he will make sure that he doesn’t get out.

    if mishap beats australia, england in their backyards then i guess no one here or anywhere will be critical of him or talk about him losing.

    see india got a 4-0 drubbing against england why?

    they never planned for such things. wc, ipl took the foremost priority and its no longer a discussed thing as if it never happened

    thats the problem with success, it hides your flaws but when they are exposed, its painful!

    yar, zen, veena is no ambassador from pakistan, she is just like all those other girls trying to make a quick buck and fame, and get some men to hang out with on along side. if she has some fame, even ill fame, she might get slightly better men than she would otherwise get. see the point.

    the only ambassador she can be compared to is the old indian taxi cab, ambassador mark iii

    im agree.

    She’s a slut from pk just like the sunny thing from canada with indian origins or like the kims or lohans from US.

    I dont expect these ladies to adhere to any code of conduct.their topmost priority is money but one can say that they are a notch better than match fixers-the butts,azharuddins etc.

    O my God, I thought it is too late in the UK now and khansahab will probably be sleeping and may be he will read my email tomorrow and write a new thread but, when I saw zen’s request on the blog to write a new thread, I asked him and NewGuy to give an idea about the topic and then it came to my mind that I can write something about India Australia series and that would be more interesting than these two series which are underway.

    Now, I see khansahab has also written a new thread about the same time and this has happened twice before. 😀
