Beer, Chips and Cricket

This is a site about drinking beer, eating chips and thinking cricket. I am not a former player, a television commentaror or a journalist; my qualification to being worthy of hearing is that I drink a lot of beer, eat a lot of chips and think a lot about cricket. The thoughts need not be politically correct and often include colourful language but there will be no deliberate bias towards any player, community or state. I don't care about popular opinion or perceptions and I speak it as I see it.

All out ... A guess on Aussie move

My guess is that they WILL enforce the follow on. They know what happened last time but the Aussies are naturally aggressive chaps ... they will enforce it again if only to show everyone they aren't scred.

Who will open ... Chopra or Yuveraj? My heart says Yuveraj and my mind says Chopra.

    You are pathetic ! Your cricket instincts are dying ! I think you should stop blogging on cricket and retire from cricketing world. What a waste ??!!

    Anyhow, looks like Chopra would have to make way for the second test. Will Tendulkar be fit ? Would Kaif be accomodated ?

    There was never any chance of them enforcing the follow on.

    And keep on blogging! We need more cricketbloggers out there

    I decided to post a message not related to this topic coz I thought it's the best place to post this message to reach maximum number of Indian Cricket Fans. I posted it in Rediff but I couldn't find the message my self easily.

    Chuckster, Please give a serious thought about writing another good article,as you did on Tendulkar recently, about Biased umpiring. I hope rediff carries it.

    I just wonder how all the bad decisions go against India. Does anybody in this world want to believe it's a coincidence? We all know about Steve Bucknor and his Infamous bad desicions that went against India (all of them, I hope no one forgot abt mocking Dravid in a cricket ground about ball tampering). Billy Bowden seems to be following Bucknor's path, Yesterday Patan's dismissal and today Sehwag's. In the past David Shepherd made some bad decisions too that went against India. I think Ashoka Desilva is better than all these umpires. Ashoka Desilva makes more bad decisions than all these umpires but at least he maintains his consistency against all teams that makes me believe he does not have anything against India. I can't believe so many people are against using technology even after all this crap. I think it's high time to use umpires as court Hangers nothing more and nothing less.

    Am I the only one who thinks like this? Any suggestions and corrections are welcome. I am not blaming just umpires for poor show of our team.

    BCCI people are busy fighting for their posts and money making but I really don't know why Indian media is turning blind eye so far about this issue.

    If I were in a position to decide who opened the batting for the indian team, I think my vote would be for Patel and Irfan...these guys will contribute a lot more....! Think of it, the indian team should probably consider batting in the reverse order, after all its been the contributing end!

    ThankGod Harini You are not in a position to decide.Obviously specialist positions and batting orders are meaningless to you...
    If Pathan and Patel opened they would last about a ball each even thought Patel his a 50 at Rawalpindi but GlennMacGrath and Gillespie are not Shoaib and Sami....
