Nagpur Test: Random Thoughts IV

Best Blog Tips

  1. Dravid was inconsolable, when an off the cuff remark by Dhoni seemed to suggest that India would have won even without Dravid's 191. Dravid is forever condemned to only play supporting roles. Adelaide 2003 too needed Ajit Agarkar
  2. South Africa remain the only team against which India has a losing record in this millennium. 3-0 in India's favor in South Africa...anyone? That will make India the only team to have such a record. 
  3. Suresh Raina, taking a cue from Harbhajan is trying to make a living out of his part time job. Harbhajan is taking his role of a mentor very seriously. Kirsten and Sachin reminded him today that it is his job to mentor spinners and not batsmen to bowl better than himself. 
  4. Now we move on to the more meaningless part of the tour.

Did Dhoni actually say that ??
That would be shockingly dumb,don't you think.And ya,Dravid is always accused as one who gets support to finish matches.But then,does Sachin win matches if bowlers don't take 20 wickets ?

No Freehit, he obviously did not say that. I looked at the margin innings and 198 runs and immediately wondered....we did not need those 191 from RD :-)
