So this is the biggest win (180 runs) ever in an ICC final.

I know srinath was quick back in the days but they havent produced much in recent years except umesh iirc. I always admired pak bowlers. Infact they have always had a better bowling lineup than us too lol. We only had 2 genuine quicks in starc and johnson and now johnson is retired. Most of the younger boys are injury prone and are now focusing on bowling line and length because they are afraid of losing their spot in the team should they injure themselves trying to bowl fast again.
Genetics are totally different. Genes of most Pakistani ethnicities are shared by only a very small part of Indians - the ones who live in the farthest northern provinces. And even there, the fast bowlers in Pakistan are mostly Pathans - very few in India.

The genetics and dietary habits of 90% of Indians are mostly suitable to playing sports like Chess and batting in Cricket.

I don't watch cricket nor care two hoots for the Indian cricket team. I like genealogy and culture though.

How many tall lean Punjabis have you seen playing for India? If at all there are punjabis, they are vegetarian fatties. Diet is skewed between the two countries here.

Srinath whom you mentioned comes from an area where the genetics are completely different and again the core diet is vegetarian.

And many Pakistani players are also Pashtuns, Pathans.. gene pools that India has little access to.

Ah fair enough. So majority of the indian players are vegetarian. I have seen many tall lean punjabis in brisbane though. Not sure about india. I just dont think that the pubjabis or indians from india have inferior genes compared to pathans etc. Like you say, its more to do with diet which seems plausible. What about umesh? And aaron? They are really fast but wildly inconsistent. Where is umesh and yadab from? Nurture bowlers from the state they are from? Seems like they have good genes perhaps due to good diet.

It has to be with our pitches, role models (Kapil became medium pacer very early in his career I believe) we've always had batsmen as role models right from Lala Amarnath days while look at Pak's batsmen Hanif Mohd, Inzy, Miandad, Anwar to an extent in ODIs and Yousuf Yohana.

They will always have better pace while we'll have our batting heroes.

Australia has always been the best/worst cricket sledging team in history... now look at them:

Quote:
Australia vice-captain David Warner says that "vile and disgusting" remarks about his wife prompted his altercation with South Africa's Quinton de Kock.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) fined both players for the incident during the first Test in Durban.

"I'll always stick up for my family and in that case my team-mates as well," Warner said.

"My emotional response was just something that I don't believe should have been said."

He added that "a comment that was vile and disgusting and about my wife and just in general about a lady was quite poor, I felt".

Warner was fined 75% of his match fee by the ICC on Wednesday and given three demerit points after video footage appeared to show him being restrained by team-mates during a row with the South Africa wicketkeeper.

The row took place on a stairwell as players returned to their dressing rooms at tea of the fourth day.

De Kock was fined 25% of his match fee by the ICC, which issued him with one demerit point.

"I would have liked him to actually say the comment a little bit louder instead of just muttering it under his breath next to me and [wicketkeeper] Tim Paine and then walking up the stairs and saying 'I didn't say anything' as soon as the rest of his team came out," Warner added.

"At the end of the day, we're all men - and if you're going to say something, you look at someone in the eye and say it."

Warner - who is clear to play in the second Test - said he did not intend to get physical with De Kock.

However, his comments are likely to be seen as inflammatory by South Africa, who were unhappy with the 31-year-old for his behaviour towards their opening batsman Aiden Markram following the dismissal of AB de Villiers.

Under the ICC's new points system, another transgression by Warner in the next two years could see him suspended for a Test.
