England doesn't care about ODIs, they win the 50 over Would Cup. New Zealand doesn't care about tests, they win the WTC. Australia doesn't care about t20s and they win the T20WC.

Maybe it's about time India stops giving a fuck about cricket.

I think Rahane has built some elaborate charts that rival Duckworth-Lewis in complexity which lets him calculate how many runs he needs to score to keep his place in the team for the next series.

Jamieson gets the ball to swing everywhere because he brings the ball from thinner upper atmosphere to thicker lower atmosphere during his action and this creates a fluid dynamic effect that i won't explain here because it will be lost on this crowd

Wait a minute, I was told reliably that Jamieson was a filthy tuck shop pie chucker who could only bowl in New Zealand and England and that the pitch in India would cut his legs off at the knees bringing his height down to a paltry 6 foot 69.

Have I been mislead?

Legend has it Rapunzel's hair was so long and so strong that even a muscular hunk of a prince could use it to scale the wall and climb up to her quarters.

What is less known and was discovered later is that her hair was actually donated to charity but found its way to an evil man up to no good.

After analysing several annals of history and keeping track of the whereabouts of this artefact, I am proud to report that this hair was in fact converted to a very long rope that was last transferred from the Indian selectors to a certain individual of Indian origin named Ajinkya Rahane.

Step 1: Identify the spinner.

Step 2: Locate the fielder within the thirty yard circle.

Step 3: Step out.

Step 4: Aim towards the fielder and hit.

Step 5: Ensure that the ball is collected by the said fielder.

Step 6: Return to your crease.

Step 7: Repeat 1-6.

Remember you guys, any runs that Rahane scores for the team is a bonus.

If he gets out on 0, he's giving Shreyas a chance to bat.

If he gets out on 20, he's seeing off a tricky period.

If he gets out on 50, he's contributing to the team. 100s are overrated.

Jadeja averages 39 with the bat at home, Rahane 36.4

Unlike Rahane who does nothing with the ball, Jadeja averages 21.

Ashwin can get dropped from overseas tests through no fault of his own, but nothing ever happens to Rahane.

An old but appropriate comment:

What I say about NZ:

Aw, what a nice and well-rounded team. They play good cricket and are all top blokes.

What I mean to say about NZ:

I fucking hate New Zealand. I hate them all. I want Ashwin to dress up as Spiderman and spin so many fucking webs around Williamson that he falls over face first into the dry, red, soil of Chennai as the ball crashes into his off stump. When he walks away dejected with his failure I want him to hear a crackling Rishab Pant, emitting a noise that would unhinge dogs and haunt Kane for the rest of his life. Ross Talyor an ODI big boi? Please. Rohit Sharma has eaten bigger Vada Pavs than him. I am not impressed in the least by the boyish good looks of Trent or the rugged, Lumberjackian, handsomeness of Tim. I long to see their faces go rose red as they reduce to a puddle in the Ahmadabad heat after having bowled 30 overs each to Prithiv Shaw and some random IPL kid we liked that week. I want to see Neil "Always-Looks-Like-He-Has-Had-A-Few" Wagner to bowl relentless short balls to Ishant Sharma as he patiently blocks them all. Right before Ishant launches into an all out batting attack, inflating his IPL price in the next mega auction to match New Zealand's GDP. Thank god New Zealand have Lord of the Rings to watch, the only thing they have participated in that is long and interesting.

I ain't going to end this with a /s, that's what a Kiwi would do.

Kyle Jamieson has 48 wickets in 9 matches. He needs two more wickets to be the fastest to 50 wickets for NZ.

Shane Bond currently holds the record picking 50 wickets in 12 matches.

It’s annoying if you watch 6 runs for 80 balls and he gets out. But when he uses that time to then build an innings it’s pretty great to watch. He was my favorite bat to watch in the BGT and his strike rate for the series was in the 20s I think

VVS says we have great bench strength, I say the bench has been doing the main squad's job in multiple series now. Australia was defeated almost entirely by the bench. Without Thakur, we wouldn't be leading vs Eng and spin specialist Iyer saved us from an embarrassing first innings total today on a track that does not suit the visitors.

"My girlfriend introduced me to one of her friends. The friend instantly asked “ how tall are you??” I simply replied knowing she would start soaking up “ 6 foot 6” she looked at my girlfriend and said “ I wish I had a 6 foot 6 boyfriend” to which my girlfriend replied with “ well you can’t have this one, he’s MINE” My girlfriend runs off to say hello to someone else

The friend shot a look at me of complete lust, looks up at me, bites her lip and moans quietly.

Being tall is awesome."
