Default on indian footwork

Virender Sehwag, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman all have statuesque footwork, waiting to be exposed in bowler-friendly conditions. At Headingley earlier this year an example quoted so often to prove that Indians can handle the seaming ball Dravid and Bangar blunted the conditions when they were at their toughest, paving the way for the rest to plunder runs when batting was comparatively easier. That didnt happen here, and India dished out the kind of batting effort which even Bangladesh would have been embarrassed with.

Saw Rafiq Bhai's comment on Wisden.

But I am pissed at their heading: "As bad as Bangladesh"

BTW: Tehsin Bhai, let the links posted in a message have a different color.

that is an interesting heading from wisden given most of the letters had nothing to do with bangladesh or india.

btw, my posting on indian footwork was taken from wisden, thought you may have seen that there. i should have put the source in the post. so the comparison to Bangladesh was Wisden's, not mine, as you can see they continue their favorite theme in the letters section.

Today I was reading a thread and then on the similar threads list, this thread popped up. Couldn't stop the urge to bring this one up. This is one of the oldest thread on the forum.

I guess those wisden posters are eating their words or already ate their words by now

A Bangali is havin breakfast 1 mornin; coffee, croissants, n bread with butter & jam, when a Indian man, chewing gum, sits down next to him. The Bangali ignores the Indian who, nevertheless, starts a conversation...

Indian: "You Bangali folks eat the whole bread?"
Bangali (in a bad mood): "Of course."

Indian (after blowing a huge bubble): "We don't. In India, we only eat what's inside. We collect the crusts in a container recycle them, and transform them into croissants and sell them to Bangladesh."
The Indian has a smirk on his face. The Bangali listens in silence.

The Indian persists: "Do you eat jam with the bread?"
Bangali: "Of Course."

Indian: (cracking his gum between his teeth and chuckling), "We don't. In India we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them, transform them into jam and sell the jam to Bangladesh.

The Bangali then asks: "Do you have s** in India?"
Indian: "Why of course we do", the Indian says with a big smirk.

Bangali: "And what do you do with the c***** once you've used them?"
Indian: "We throw them away, of course."

Bangali: "We don't. In Bangladesh, we put them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into chewing gum and sell them to India."

The moral of the Baisab story is: "Don't mess with the Bengalis. One will pay dearly once the suitable time comes."

Wisden has started to eat their humble pie since last year.

It was probably an old practice. Kinda like the subject line in email. Very formal, before the newbies and teenies invaded this forum.

Thanks for digging this up.It's a nice indication of how much we have improved and also how we should rather focus on our achievements than failures.Of course, we have a long way to go.Still, I feel happy that at least we have proved our ability to considerable extent.

Rafiq bhai and Pundit bhai are regular (check their last visit on profile page). Sham reappears once in while during major BD series. Shubho is missing for long time.
