Well...still didn't win....Yuvraj played well though...why on Earth did we play without 5 specialist bowlers...especially seeing that we had conceded more than 300 runs both the previous times...Aus really is a tough team to beat...and we're not gonna win ,by sledging them.What do you think?

Don't expect to win with 4 specialist bowlers and a Tendulkar or Ganguly filling in as the 5th bowler.These are the Aussies we're playing,they're clobbering our front line bowlers,forget part-timers.

What we need is a genuine all-rounder.As for sledging,we're either too aggressive or to mild.The guys should be moderate in talk,but excellent in the game.

Yes...we were massacred in the last ODI...Lee and Johnson were tremendous though....As for the all-rounders...Pathan was the only one who was said to have the"potential...blahblah...."to become an all-rounder...people even started comparing him to Kapil....too early I'd say...though I agree he does have what it takes to become an all-rounder.

Re: Questions for the Indians

I wish the Indian team would come back to Australia. Last time they were in Adelaide I met Ishant Sharma and the amazing man himself, Sachin Tendulkar. Best thing ever.

Re: Questions for the Indians

ARAVIND ADIGA WINS 2008 MAN BOOKER PRIZE FOR FICTION
Yet another Indian does us proud, after Kiran Desai's win for "The Inheritance of Loss" in 2006.

Adiga's "The White Tiger" is his very first book and he beat strong favourite Sebastian Barry to win the coveted honour.

Adiga wins Booker-rediff.com
