    It could also be , because they have time only for advertaisments and modeling stuffs, and make too much money, by just being a part of the so called Cricket Team, When one can just sit and make money, who would be really intrested in working hard ?

    No.. no... there is no reason. There can be no reason.

    It is just that they are playing aweful. Yes, there have been problems.. the tour schedule could have had been made a little better by reducing the gap days of 6 days between tests and 4 days (or so) between 2 one dayers.. to schedule some 3-day/2-day matches before the series in SA. That would have had given them time to adapt to the conditions... that they are doing now in the matches.... but still the truth remains the same. They are playing aweful and they are missing Ganguly and Laxman's experience.

    The top guys are okay - like sehwag, sachin, dravid, dhoni... but who are these other guys - kaif, dinesh kartik, dinesh mongia, raina etc? They are useless.. they cannot play in SA. They don't have experience to those conditions or heart to face pitched deliveries. They cannot be the middle order which usually has been a strength of the indian cricket team. They are not dependable.. one or two from them is okay in the side but not all. We need laxman... we need ganguly.

    And if that is not possible... i know why it isn't ... we can do without guru greg.

    What about soccer? Why such countries which have over 1000 mln population like China and India are weak in soccer?
    Popular opinion is the greatest lie in the world.

    Well, India is not only weak in soccer but also in Cricket... So, Indians at least are pretty consistent on that front...

    We don't play much soccer and that's why we are weak. Cricket is the biggest business in the subcontinent. It does not allow any other sport to come up. People are trying though.

    Yup! I am a little bit happier now.. with India winning the first test! Good knocks by Ganguly, Laxman, Zaheer, Prince. Good bowling by Sreesanth, Zaheer, Kumble, Pollock.

    The piece of attraction was Sreesanth.. with some amazing bowling and entertainment.. If you know what I am talking about.

    Oh.. he got fined.. I missed that view for which he was fined.. but he is a very enthusiastic lad! Nel deserved that.. he is a little bit too much for nothing... and I don't think any disrespect or so was intended from Sreesanth...

    I am amazed to see Nel like stunts by Kallis as well.. he is a marvellous player.. I don't know why he needs to do that!

    One similar ocassion happened when Aamir Sohail hit Prasad for a boundary and showed him the way it went and the next ball he was clean bowled... it's amazing how things back-fire.. but it is always entertaining watching these...

    The fine wasn't for dancing. Was for some kind of action when he got a wicket. And they judged that it was a disrespect shown to the batsman that was out.

    As a matter of fact, these kind of 'judgement' only happens against India or some Asian countries.

    Re: India win series against S.Africa 4-0

    I can't honestly see why Sreesanth was fined

    I think it was good fun between Nel and Sreesanth - they made the game exciting and it's actually what Cricket needs, especially when a test match is quite boring.
    There are always little duels between players, and it's always interesting to see who will win. for instance :
    Smith vs. Zaheer - who wins everytime there

    I'm really glad that India won this test match, and I think that they will win the series 3 - 0.
    It's time SA cricket realises that people cannot play good if the don't play regularly. Some of the players there haven't played a test match in 6 months!
    The middle order and b0ttom order cannot always save the game, as you saw, the failed the first innings, and the whole team got 84!

    Now, the SA team is resting for the second test, and India has organised a 2 day game with KZN. How can we rest !!
    That's why we are going to lose this series 3 - 0

    Oh.. he was not fined for that. He was fined for two things:

    1. He did something or said something indescent to the batsman : HM Amla (I guess and I don't know much about it.. missed it on TV)

    2. For wearing a black inner inside shirt. That is not allowed - ICC Rules!

    India won't win that easy now.. but surely their confidence must have got a boost... I am hoping for a good series and not a pathetic one like the One-dayers...

    Re: India win series against S.Africa 4-0

    It's all in the Papers in SA.. Sidelined players (one who hasn't played a test match in almost a year) is now on the team, In a last ditch effort to win the Test Series..

    Hmm.. I agree with Hannes, SA is going to loose it..

    and all i can say is that India do Deserve the win..

    Lets wait and see ......

    I was saying that in general. Statistics do reveal it.
