  1. Great blog!

    Check out mine as well friend:

    I just recently revived it.

  2. Amazing blog you are updating it on a terrific pace...


  3. I am very sad seeing Blore team's performance... They are playing like school children..only good thing is Dravid is playing very good cricket and able to bring some respect to the team total... others are total waste.. try to improve in upcoming matches

  4. its good to see RCB win last copul of games,
    i hope Rahul Dravid presence can make it real diffrence in this team.
    Mr malya has to wait a copul of years to see his team in top .

    I hope this troop can do wel with the help of kalis ,Anil,Rahul,baucher,Roelof van der Merwe,Jesse,Ross Taylor, but dont foget praven n Virat.

    Kp is realy worthless in both form as a skiper and as an indvidual player.

    it will be better to hand over the captency to Mr Calm n perfection Mr Anil kumble.

    pls put ur commet aginst this

    hope u will cal me abt this

  5. i totally agree Kumble is the man. Calm and collective. He took Challengers to semis, while we were hoping to loose all the games.
