If Australia beats Pakistan, India is out of the Champions Trophy. If Pakistan beats Australia by a slender margin, India has to beat West Indies by a huge margin. If Pakistan beats Australia by a huge margin, India has to beat West Indies albeit by a lesser huge margin.
All very confusing? Not if you drink Pepsi—as Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ishant Sharma, Virender Sehwag, Praveen Kumar and Robin Uthappa do. Not even this advance, under-water preparation was enough to prepare them for the ravages of a rained-out match against the Aussies last night.
Bookmark Uthappa’s classic line at the end.
not only is it silly, it also seems to condone throwing cans into a beautiful river.
For all the love they profess for this canned/bottled slow poison, wonder how many cricketers really drink it on a regular basis. Cricket (besides fast bowling) is probably one of the few physical professional sports where you can get away with a lack of fitness even at the highest levels…
When a boxer like Vijender endorses it, it must be total bogus – since his training wouldnt allow him to drink the shit on a regular basis and compete.
lol at Uthappa… he wasnt even prepared for the KPL…
I endorse you totally. Cricket doesn’t demand exacting physical fitness at all. All our top cricketeers are far from being fit, they have flab.
Can a boxer have flab? or footballer?
One day matches results are decided primarily on the basis of luck. Toss jo jeetega, woh 95% match jeetega.
Toss is crucial. If India had won the toss against Pak, pak would have lost.
Why do i say that?
Go by statistics of day night matches, team which bats first and posts huge total, wins invariably.
Our cricket players are like our Government servants. They retire on the day they are selected as they are assured of all benefits. They should be hired and fired depending on their performance, not hire them on contract. Even Michel Owen the top Footballer in England has been hired and payed on performance.
In he recent ICC Champions trophy on Wednesday the commentator rightly said that ” all the TV viewers in India are keenly watching the cricket match, which match? The pak v.s Aus match as the result has a bearing on India”.
Our so called Champions have taken us to this stage. Dhoni removed his pads to bowl. What a paradox and how serious they are? Australia is always a better team and they deserve a place in the SF.
