Re: Sports and Performance Enhancing Drugs (Doping)

15 wrestlers, 9 power lifters, and 6 bodybuilders all test positive. Subrata Pal tested positive. More doping

And now, Rohit Yadav, a 16 year old javelin thrower, who was also a Asian Youth Games silver medalist winner, tests positive. Yadav fails dope test

Re: Head coach of Indian cricket team - 2017

As long as the people who are making the decision to keep Kumble or not are independent, i.e., not his relatives or close friends, etc., then asking for whatever raise he wants is okay. It is up to the employers to figure out if they want to keep him at the salary he demands or go elsewhere.

Re: ATP World Tour Masters/ WTA Clay court season 2017

Mr. Ghosh is entitled to his opinion. However, the rest of the world possibly does not care about his opinion. And, Lee does not care and should not care about what anyone else thinks. As long as he wants to do it, he should keep playing. Ditto for anyone else. Sania. Yuki. Etc.

Re: ATP World Tour Masters/ WTA Clay court season 2017

I think from time to time we are frustrated that people whom we support are not doing well. Then, we make emotional statements. In essence, Mr. Ghosh feels that there is not much point in Sania's playing because he does not put much value in a world #10 or #20 or #50 in doubles. But, I think the key...

Re: Roland Garros 2017

Hey, I am disappointed every time an Indian player loses. I am pained more when the loss is unexpected and pained less when it is expected. But, pained nonetheless.

Re: ATP World Tour Masters/ WTA Clay court season 2017

:-) I think fundamentally we agree on a lot of things (maybe except Indian politics). Wrt sports, we like to quibble at the margins. :-)

Re: ATP World Tour Masters/ WTA Clay court season 2017

As long as she is getting entries, she should keep playing. If her ranking goes down and she is not good enough, then automatically she will not play. Whether to retire or not is largely based on a person's mental motivation. In a team sport, retiring may make sense. Dhoni is blocking a youngster. S...

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

This is a repudiation of the Dhoni doctrine. There was an international match where Gambhir was very angry with Dhoni because he wanted to take the match to the last over and win when Gambhir (and Sehwag?) had given a fantastic huge opening stand while scoring very fast. Dhoni lost that match for us...

Re: Champions Trophy, 2017

8 ODIs is a very small sample size. So, it is possibly a flash in the pan. His runs/over is still 5.83, quite high. The only reason to play him is because he seems to have turned a corner in the last year or two and become slightly less erratic and gets wickets a bit more. If the selectors see him b...

Re: Champions Trophy, 2017

That's right. I had forgotten about Bumrah. Bumrah will possibly replace Shami. Umesh "doing well". lol. He has been one of the worst ODI bowlers to ever play for India. He is lucky to be in the ODI side. He is 29 years old and his runs/over is over *6* in his career with an average of 33....

Re: Champions Trophy, 2017

Karthik got into the team because Manish Pandey is out with an injury. My first XI should be: Dhawan, Rohit, Kohli, Dhoni, Yuvraj, Kedar, Hardik, Bhuvi, Shami. Okay, that is 9. For the rest two, we have to figure out if we want a batsman or two spinners or two pacers or some combination of the same....

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

There is an alternative. Just have a reserve day. I am fully with you. Or if the forecast calls for rain, move the game earlier if the logistics can be handled. I looked at the Indian players with the lowest SRs with over 142 runs. Here is the list (in sorted order of low SR first): Mandeep, Dhoni, ...
