That was fool's luck, Jammin, fooker tried to stop it... luckily his incompetence worked in his favour this time, flicked the fingers and went on to hit stumps.

Wanted to complete the set.

Not happy with World 11... the undertaking is too much for me.

Do we really need 2 spinners. Ive seen scorecards where a spinner has bowled over 100 overs in a match. It takes away a place, an all-rounder... theres only 1, right? Khan sahib it is!

Murli or Warne? Easy, Murli, yes? Yes.

Jammin mate, I'll leave the World XI to you or any1 else interested... I'm struggling with it, already changed it 57 times.

I'll take the ISC one... dont give rat's who you put me up against... I'm winning with conviction.

In which particular match did Sachin thrash your favorite team so hard that made you not include him in a world XI?

Sachin is mourinho... if I'm playing against Bangladesh I'll let you place him at any number you want.

He has no heart, shits himself once he gets to 80, starts playing 1s and 2s. Know which fucker is cool? The guy on 194 with few overs to go and he decides to reach 200 with a 6. Didnt happen... jigra dekho uska!

Mate, do you remember who was the bowler that dismissed Saeed Anwar on 194? And later went on to score the first ever 200 in an ODI?

Sachin is untouchable. Maradona if he lasted 25 years at the top, wasn't a dickhead and left the sport after achieving everything and with nothing left to prove.

Australians are the biggest bastardos in cricket... and I mean the whole package, the skill, the bullying, the sledging, its all top billing. So, when Allan Boarder decrees that Javed Miandad is off-limits and here you are not even giving him a place in wot looks to be a ISC team... my friend, c'mon.

Also... I'm not sure here so I'm asking: Anwar's 194 & Sachin's 200, were these made when rules were the same? When did fielding restrictions, power plays come into play? I cud be wrong on this but it seems Anwar made his when there was balance... later on the sport moved to favour the batsmen. Like golf and Tiger... the fucker had a strong T-off so they started making courses longer.

Edit: Afridi & entertainment lol! Lol! Lol! Save yr Euro, you wont get much value for it.

India almost got trashed by hung kung :fp: :lol:

I wasn't around but I bet this would be classified as famous last words for what followed in the rest of the tournament. Especially during derby de la Kashmir. :o

≠===================

India have burned the southern hemisphere.

My childhood dream was India trashing straya in straya in tests. Didn't think I would see it in my lifetime.

Feels nice fam.

Comparing Anwar to Tendulkar is like comparing Benzama to Van Basten. U clowning.

Dude isn't even top 5 openers in subcontinent (Sachin, Jayasurya, Rohit Sharma, Sehwag, Ganguly. In that order) .

as an Aussie I am appalled by the way we played vs india. our batsmen were misfiring throughout the series. Who is that Mayank kid? he seems good. We have a potent bowling attack and I still believe it's the best in the world although India's fast bowlers especially bumrah was tremendous.
I think we would have atleast drawn with india had smith and warner played. They contribute alot to our batting setup and we are quite dysfunctional without them 2. We still got our butt kicked by s.africa.
honestly I think toss plays a huge role these days when you face top teams. india and s.africa both beat us 2 times each when they won the toss.

Yeah the toss definitely does a play a role in the overall outcome.

It was clearly evident in England when India lost 4 tosses and then lost 4 very closely contested games. Just 30-50 runs between the teams.

Australian bowling was a total let down in the series. If starcs daily output in a test is 12/90 overs as a front line bowler then u are in trouble. Cummins was a beast. Best bat and bowl for straya.

yes cummins is world class. starc is very inconsistent. when he is on he is on fire. hazelwood is like mcgrath.
bumrah is probably the best bowler in the world at the moment though.

I think india lost to England on purpose lol. india is better than England. in saying that they got the selection wrong for that pitch.
pakistan can beat anyone on their day. cup would go to either Australia or india now.

fucking bumrah is good. that's the one guy I fear. our stupid middle order is useless. handscomb will struggle vs bumrah. Even smith found it hard.

Fuck me, we are back to the dark ages. Colonial British days once again. :cry:

Overall tournament started slow, but got fun after the mid rain break and the pitches started misbehaving. Ridiculous final. That "6" in the last over was the most supernatural thing I've seen in sports.
