You also must have seen, The Lords of Cricket, The Tin(Three) Towers
Yeh, that’s right … This is Angry Post … so if you are batsman or masturbater-kind over glorious cover drives … FO.
All Of you … Every single Indian of You … cricket lover of you are guilty of this sin … those who said India produces Great batsmen only.
“Ooohh wow Great WI bowlers … legends. Oooh Great Pakistani Duo. Ooooh Oooh Murali. OOoo Australian Bowlers …. Ooooh Dale Styen. Oooohh English bowlers in English Condition”.
Who the fuck … who the fucking fuck has been taking 20 wickets from 2000-2011. My Dady? No! Your Daddy? No. Then, Shut up your mouth … you have cavity.
India has played 42 test series 23 WON 10 Draw series = 33 = not lost. 33 out of 42 test series NOT LOST.
Did your batsman come down from hell and took 20 freaken wickets???? NO.
My Bowlers Did. Yes .. Those Skinny Bastards. Those Skinny Bastards also .. had to bat and bared taunting from commentators the way they bat … the shady techniques they have … laughed at while they took a rapid signals to get off the strike after bowling under ugly sun. (I hope Sun doesn’t read this)
How many times your ‘batsmen’ … your 3 Gods + Your Dasher … Bowl and helped taking 20 wickets? Once … thrice .. I will give you 5 tests. Then … who took those wickets? My Daddy? Your Daddy? NO .. You? NO … My Skinny Bastards.
Let say you have full respect for Kumble. I agree. But what after him? Did we crash like Aus did Post-Warne? Did we ..? No right!
Were there only Mammoth BATTERS responsible for those wins?
You rated them recently … Gave them least score … gave Australia FULL mark. Then, Worshiped Dale Styen. Masturbate over English bowlers in English Condition .. but WTF happened in WC.
Oh WOW the WORST rated bowling team WON the world CUP. Didn’t they?
You You You … Pseudo supporter of Indian bowlers. You haven’t done great in giving credit to my bowlers too. One say Zak is God, rest are meh! Really?, Zak had done great against Aus and Bangla in last 3-4 years. What about other series? What have you done?
You said ‘Oh Oh Ishant is inconsistent, IPL has ruined him, Oh oh Bhajji should have been dropped, He is SO bad that he is dragging our team down, oh oh Plaha sucks, Oh Oh Sree .. ‘he is Lunatic’ ‘Overrated bowler’ He is more of an actor than performer, Ojha oh we don’t respect left arm spinner, they ‘AREN’T’ actually real spinner, Munaf!? ‘He has become spinner’ …
Are you getting it what I am trying to say?
Put one hand on your heart, look at the pitches my bowlers bowled at … look at the scorecard for last 5 years. I say, look at the score card for even whole decade. And tell me, are you doing enough justice to my bowlers.
Are my bowlers (plant) lost among three giant batsmen (trees)? Has proper sun-light reached them? Shouldn’t they be praised more in Media, because they are the one who took 20 wickets, no? for 32 NO LOSS test series?
What is more easy … playing 200+ dot balls and be MOM or bowling 1oo deliveries running hard … jumping hard .. and still occasionally been asked to play ‘Night Watchman’ to shield your batsman? Just tell me now, what is easier?
My Bowlers are Work Horses. They are like factories, who never say no, till their system failure due to overload. They are Stallions. Your Batsman are Just Bull Dogs.
And I like my Stallions as much as I like my Bull Dogs. And you should too.

Is this the outrage post on ‘no result’ of final test between India vs WI at Dominica?
Why? Because this is the blog not a twitter page.
Also, it’s been more than 24 hours. So, epinephrine is not firing at the same velocity.
I support my team. I am fan. I am blind.
So, let’s really look at what was the team that went to WI.
I thought, ‘theoretically’, there was only one player out of 12 or 13, who was 100% ready to roll in WI. (Ready to roll = expected to pwn WI)
One should understand that this was not a normal XI.
Mukund: (Newbie, trying to make a name) Vijay: (still a newbie, trying even extra hard to make an impact)
Dravid (Out of form)
Raina (was under severe pressure coming off from bad ODI series and bad SA tour),
Kohli: (Newbie was under pressure too)
MSD: (he still never had enough batting opportunities or batting experience on ‘pitch’ like this, also, having to bat below the Mammoths)
Bhaji: (bonus, not a batsman, lost ‘that’ bowling zip)
Ishant: (who was literally main bowler for the first time in his career, was under pressure too)
PK: (Newbie, had to make impact too) Munaf: (was injured in first two tests, had to come and bowl on slightly spinning track)
Mishra: (who was under pressure after getting picked over Ojha) Mithun: (overlooked in SA, had to make massive impact, again, same story)
So, basically only player who was inform, experienced and ready to roll or expected to do well was Laxman. He was the one, who scored decent runs, in last two tests. If not for the rain, would have been India 3-0. Guaranteed.
Did India do better than expected? Actually, they did. They really did well. Why? because WI fought really hard, surprisingly, even without Chris Gayle, which is still kind of sad.
Castro. Kirk. Bishoo. Chander. Bravo. Samuels. Baugh. Barath. Ravi. did massively well. Sammy lead them well. (again)
I tell you on this pitch, if you add Chris Gayle and if WI invites other teams, any other teams, and their FULL side. This side will give you very good fight. (Keamar Roach was missing in Barbados, Ahem, where is Benn?)
Note: ‘same’ Pitch.
Was I entertained? Absolutely, yes.
The most entertaining test team at the moment. Undisputed.
Thank you for reading,
P.S. : read the title again.
“zzz” I wasn’t actually sleeping.
“More off that please.” When Sachin played pull shot to Tsotsobe
“Use the feet against Harris, he is at your feet.” Harris is was so easy to play when you come forward, so I tweeted it. Seeing him getting bounce, because of his height.
“Captown Ghost is still sleeping though.” I was just trying to compare this inning with Sachin’s 169 (which is my all time favorite.
“A guy just tickle-kick a girl to let her know she is on camera!! Dude a respect for a lady please?” I just saw a guy friendly kicked girl, I never kicked girl in my life. Why do you even want to kick a girl anyway!
“Polly is pawning Mike Haysman lol #cricket” Pollock was explaining Tsotsobe’s foot problem. Mike Haysman made a blunder. But, Polly politely corrected him.
“And the candy scream by Tso TSo” Tsotsobe cried when his edged went to 4.
“Bhajji watching this. ?” Few bowls (2) were turning enough by Paul Harris to beat the batsman.
“Scrambled seam #ftw” Tsotsobe was using scrambled seam short-good length wide pitches to Sachin, and he wasn’t timing it before of Akward pace and bounce from Scrambled seam.
“That wasn’t an edge” Steyn laughed and everyone appealed for an edge, but it wasn’t an edge, umpire rightly got that one.
“Spinbhajan Singh.” I retweeted this. @bigfatphoenix aka Anand Ramachandran
“I am sure others have mentioned it already, India has always played with 4 bowlers.” Sarcastic tweet against commentators claiming Kallis’ bowling will be missed.
“JP Duminney just stopped his captain’s shot. He should be nervous now.” JP was on for Kallis fielded really well, stopped many runs of Sachin, who was his captain for Mumbai Indians.
“VVS is the word.” VVS smashed 4 to Paul Harris.
“Google Australian Dingo go to images click on first photo.” Do this, you will be surprised 😛
“Peterson is for batting in my fantasy team. Easy there with bowling average. Son.” He was leaking runs. He was in my fantasy team.
“WTF” VVS’ run-out.
“You mother …” Frustration by the way he was run-out.
“WTF VVS was doing, standing and watching. WTF” Frustration after watching replay.
“And the crowd is showing their real ass douche character chanting and clapping adding pressure. SHUT UP” Against crowd, SRT was in 90’s.
“Too tall bowler to hit the stump.” Morne Morkel
“Che is protecting SRT. Nice I am off to bed. I will explode. zzz” Pujara took a single to retain the strike, before lunch was called. And I wasn’t sleeping.
“Move Aside Wasim Akram, New Kid is in town? His name is Dale Steyn Too early?” Steyn’s delivery to Pujara just eclipsed Wasim akram’s great delivery, which was given not-out. It swung a LOT.
“Still Captown Ghost is sleeping.” You know what I meant there. 🙂
“Bloody Fighter Plane” Styen’s wicket to Dhoni
“Well that’s one way you can loose the bowl, The Sehwag’s way” Sehwag once in his domestic match said to his partner, when they were having trouble with swing the bowl was producing. He said something like to his partner. We have to loose the bowl. His partner surprised and said what. Then, Sehwag just smashed the bowl right out of the park. So, they lost the bowl. Thus, lost the swing. Bhajji was smashing it that time so I tweeted it’s The Sehwag’s way.
“First attempt by Morne to disturb someone and he tried Sachin” I have never seen Morne Sledge in the whole match, or do anything in whole match. Sachin was taking single and Morne widened his arm so Sachin can’t take single. It looked friendly obstruction. But, Morne wasn’t laughing.
“They appealed when he didn’t nick it” Appeal which was turned down, and Steyn didn’t appeal properly when Sachin seem to have nicked it. It was not-out clearly when they appealed it properly.
“WOWWW Ian GOuld I am your fan” Ian Gould’s decision, when Steyn’s one of many unplayable bowl passed the out-side edge but kissed the stump but didn’t dislodge the bails. Speed of bowl was 138km. In real time, you have to be very good to catch that.
“ASHES can gift me the trophy still it doesn’t beat the intensity of this match. So I will decline it.”
“lol… when you can’t dislodge the bails at 138kph, when the fuck can you…. bastard superman, how do you do it?” My Retweet of @achettup
“Now I can go to pee” Over change, wasn’t moving. Match was intense.
“Best bowler in the world vs best batsman in the world. Test cricket at its very finest.” My Retweet of @AltCricket
“@SpiceBoxofEarth Durban wasn’t bad either. So, will say this whole series has been fantastic.” My reply to his tweet above.
“Captown ghost is slightly moving his eyes”
“I haven’t slept for whole night.”
“Scrambled Seam SCREW THis Tso Tso”
“@straightpoint I just might if we don’t pull it off. Hard work is done on this. :(” My reply to@straightpoint’s tweet “you won’t regret it either… RT @Knowledge_Poop: I haven’t slept for whole night.”
“Hahah Sachin to Bhajji: Bichme Khada rahe (stand in the middle)”
“and in the meantime… please find a time to take a bow to the curator of this pitch… #newland” My Retweet of @Straightpoint
“Captown ghost slightly opening an eye” Sachin was hitting runs comfortably.
“I’m looking for all those folks who say Sachin has never played a crucial innings when it mattered… you can come out now as hypocrits” My Retweet of @achettup
“@achettup They aren’t hypocrites they are Bacteria, they grow in certain temperature, when he plays and other fails.” My reply to his tweet.
“WTF is this guy on?” Paul Harris was given bowl.
“@cricketwballs watching test match right now?” To JRod
“@paddlesweep And he is no way looking like wants to retire anytime soon. :)” My tweet to @paddlesweep’s tweet
“For the record, we never said, in our 500 or so posts, that Sachin doesn’t play well under pressure. So come out you fuckwits, and watch!” His response “@Knowledge_Poop People like Him and Kallis are needed to be revered specially when greats like punter are acting all twattilicious.” My response: “@paddlesweep They both are inspiring each other”
“hahha” Bhajji hit 4 to Paul Harris
“THat turned” This one turned. (he turned 2)
I replied in later tweet @MeikoElektra Shit Happens. 🙂
“K I am feeling hangover without Alcohol”
“@HomerTweets Honor. Btw. You are my top follower as well. So double honor.”
“62 more to go.”
“Btw. I am not tweeting after this test.”
“@Knowledge_Poop oye… only 162 to go… don’t we need lead… ;)” @straightpoint asked
I replied “@straightpoint 62 to go to level it Sir. Real Match Start afterwards. :)”
“This is going to go only one way. Is Par ya us Par #hindi” Steyn was brought back into attack Bhajji was facing.
“OMG US par it went” Bhajji hit a six to Steyn. It was very well connected. The bowl wasn’t short, it was on a good length. Hard to hit those like this so easily.
“It was so beautiful that he started crying” Bhajj got something in his eyes.
“@DaleSteyn62 LOL” Yup, I teased him of seeing Bhajji hitting six to the world best bowler
“@achettup LOL” my response to @achettup’s tweet “oh man… I can see another monkeygate incident coming up at this rate… Sachin and Bhajji together again…”
“@BugsAndBails And he is missing” my response to @BugsAndBails Rahul B “Did someone notice SRT hasn’t scored for like 15 balls now? Bhajji has climbed to 33, SRT stuck on 134.” He replied “@Knowledge_Poop Yeah. But has been playing for around 300 balls. Seems tired.” I replied “@BugsAndBails He was middling everything before Bhajji got whole lot ofstrike he lost strike and missing.Well He can’t tire,now, lot to play”
“SRT now has more Test hundreds in SA than any other visiting batsman – 5. Hammond and Harvey have 4.” My retweet of cricketingview Kartikeya Date
I don’t know what Cricket analysts and Writers are doing these days !!
They are busy picking best XI, and looking for old talented cricketers. But no-one is talking about new recent debutant ? What about the player who worked so hard to get in to side? What about player who made India win many matches for last 3 years !
I mean give this young guy where its due now. Everyone is talking about some old guy who scored many runs for India and have scored most amount of World Cup runs and highest of centuries and all that. But hey, he is old guy. He tried his best to win World Cup for India, but he couldn’t for India.
But what about this new debutant !! He is young. Energetic. Looks good in technique. And he recently won many matches for India. Not only in Test but one-day too.
So, here I am writing on this new comer debutant. Who started showing he can be great batsman, if he continues to bat like this for at least 10 years.
That was his first match.
He played decent for a debutant, scoring as much as another great senior Ganguli.
He played very vital first inning in first test match, unfortunately, India lost series.
After that, that Debutant have played 31 Test match and scored 3090 test match runs, with 12 centuries, with 65.74 average. Now thats very impressive for a debutant scoring consistently for 3 years. And not only that he has scored runs in ODI, as well. He has scored 1895 runs in 40 ODI with 54.14 avg. Now, that is very impressive for a youngster to be able to do that in both formats. I hope he plays IPL as well, I wonder who will auction him ! And for how many $ !
If India needs to win next world cup, this young person must fire with other youngsters like Raina, Kohli, Ishant Ghambhir etc. with support from senior players like Sehwag, Dhoni, Yuvi, Bhajji, Nehra and Zak.
India also plays Nz. and SA before world cup, it will be really great practice for him to get to play few tough bowlers in foreign condition like SA. He did decent against them in his debut series. Let’s see if he can continue his form, so selectors can pick him for world cup squad.
I want him to get picked for coming world cup. I see him scoring lots of runs for India. He seems to be future of India. After retirement from that old guy, I think India must look forward to this new talent.
India finally looks like finding a proper technique filled batsman, but I don’t want to hype him and jinx him. I know he can learn a lot from few seniors like Dravid, Laxman, and Sehwag. I am sure he must have been asking them lot of question how to handle crazy Indian fans. They must have been giving this youngster lot of advices, how to handle a pressure with media questions and all that. He can learn a lot from these seniors. Looks like MSD trust him as well.
Its sad that youngster wasn’t available for 96 and 2003 world cup to bat with Sachin Tendulkar, who was one of the greatest Indian batsman. If this youngster was found earlier to bat with likes of Sachin, Azhar , Sidhu, Sehwag, Dravid, Srinath, Kambli, Kumble than I am sure India would have won both of the world cups. Imagine Sachin and this debutant batting together against any bowling attack. They would have ruled all bowlers. And won lot of matches for India.
Well, sometimes you can’t get everything what you want. So, I am being optimistic and wishing this youngster a great success on his career. By looking at his fitness, I think he can go long way.
I love dogs, but I can’t pet them.
Because My parents are bit strict, Dogs can’t enter Kitchen, can’t lick your face (actually I am against that as well, since we don’t have same micro-flora in our mouth) etc.
But, main reason we, me and my parents, are against when you have to leave your pet stranded some time. You know leaving pet stranded is a sin. But someplace you can’t take them for sure. Its like they start to miss you like you are their parents. In fact, you become their parents in few days. So, we have decided not to pet them.
Although, I have always given food to street dogs, saw their puppy grow, clean their shits, when they poop all around my house. Oooh I miss that house, so much sweats and blood was poured there by my grandpa and papa.
Anyways, Speaking of Dogs today I want to introduce to Australian Dingo.
VVS Laxman is the Australian Dingo.
First time I learned about this animal, from one magazine, I use to read when I was teenager. That magazine name was Safari. http://www.safari-india.com/
I have to be honest, my curiosity about science and nature, human life was really motivated by around 25 articles I read from that Magazine. It was so innovative and capturing. My eyes have lit up so many times while reading that in my teen days.
I read about Dingo, at that time, was fascinated by this animal.
They aren’t normal sissy street Dogs, they are more than that.
They look like pet dogs, some people even pet them in Australia, but if you see history of Dingo incidence in Australia, then you will know you have no idea what you are dealing with here.
There is a controversy behind them petting. And a big risk.
The reason I compare with Lax, is because Lax love playing Australia.
Its like Lax was born in Australia, his few knocks against them are very proudly well documented in Indian History.
In early times, when Australia was building, one of the main economical export was sheep wool, it still is.
The main nemesis for Australian Poor Sheep was our legendary Dingo.
I said our because guess what The Ancestors for Dingo were Asians. hehehe Asian Gray Wolf.
The Dingos, you see ppl. petting over Australian homes are too much hybrid version, they aren’t real blood.
The first real blood are very much like Wolf.
So, like Dingo, Lax has been one of the biggest Australian Predators. If you are an Australian and owning a farm, you know what I am talking about.
Lax has been one of my favorite indian batsman. He is The Wrist King. Its very typical batting style coming from Hyderabad.
When you see Lax is on hunting mood, he will hunt and hunt big, long and can hunt many species. Not only Sheep.
“170 species (from insects to buffalo) have been identified as being part of the dingo diet.” – Wikipedia
There is special fence been built to protect poor domestic animals and humans from Dingo.
Dingo may look like cute muscular healthy Dog, but they aren’t actually cute while they start biting your neck.
Don’t believe me, ask an Australian e.g. Warney, Waughs or even Ian Chappell. Or any Australian farmer.
Respect for Laxman – The Australian Dingo.
