Re: Desi chat thread

twenty world champions hype didn't last long as india lot thier 2nd odi against australia at kochi badly.(the series 1-0 with 5 more matches to play.)
India is back to reality now.
Certainly terrible bowling performance. in the first odi aus were down 18/2 and made 306 and in the second odi 8/2 to 306. Certainly the bowlers are relxaing too much after first two wickets and losing focus.

Test matches were played in England on a time when an average genteel English family used to have a maid, a cook, a butler, a governess and perhaps other servants. Consequently they had a lot of spare time.

Nowadays, here in N.America, we have to everything ourselves, and not much time. I am a die-hard cricket fan, due to Sopcast/TVu Player/Cricinfo/Livestream etc. there is no technological problem in watching cricket matches from here. Yet, I cannot watch even an entire ODI, ball-by-ball, which however, I managed to do in case of the T20 final.

Ask a N.A. friend in your school/office and they will shudder if you say you want to take him/her to a sports match which spans 8 hours, as in the case of an ODI.
However, if they start T20 here, I can hope to persuade a friend here to accompany me in a match. He/she might dig it, and that way the game might spread here.

I have nothing against tests/ODI, but just that today we cannot hope a working individual will be able to watch an entire match.
you made some very good points.

World champions are Australia.( won three times in a row.) Certainly they didn't care about 20's. 20's is just like exibition event for them. Certainly i don't like this format. but yes it will be great for the viewers to watch.( hitting 4 after 4 without and it is quite exiciting but certainly not from players point of view. there will be no stategy at all. it just kind of hit or miss game like darts.) Every one has thier opinion on this event i respect that.
well the true world cup will come in 2011 at home. so i they repeat this performance.(even if they manage to get to the semi-final or finals i'll be happy.) until no drinking or partying.(if they do get overly hyped you know the consequences.)

Well completly agree with that. Also there was rumor 20's cricket will be included in the 2012 olympics. England olympic organization are trying to make cricket an olympic sport.(which is a great idea and it will give us some hope of winning a medal.)

NKP salve trophy is the only one whoch gets big audience.(due to D/N match and presense of big superstars.)

50 overs format. certainly players can come up with strategies and game plan and also players aren't going to be in hurry and make rash shots. 50 overs format isn't really boring.

Also saniamania do you remember the match between australia and south africa at port elizabeth last year. (it was classic match. around 970+ runs were made in that match. australia 434/6 south africa 435/9.)
Most of the one matches between pakistan-india series in pakistan last year were exciting.

Good to know you had a good time Sid. Enjoy the moment.

I was watching the match in Sopcast, and got really tense when Misbah hit the six in the beginning of last over and 5 runs were left of 4/5 balls. I thought India will again lose another final. But thank god the next ball was bliss!

Re: Desi chat thread

India owns pakistan in world cups.

Congrats dhoni and rest of the team.

I'm certainly no fan of 20's format.(I certainly find this format a big joke .) But hopefully india plays a similar performance in the next "real" world cup.

I'm glad this "slog" cricket come to an end. My major cocern now is players will hyped up too much now and start tanking future matches.
Anyway i like this 20's idea in domestic cricket in india.
Once again Congrats to the team.
Let the australia tour begin.
