    Superb cartoon Satish. But as ThatsJustCricket said, it's not at all a shameful loss. For all that we know of Afridi, he could have holed out @ 49.2 and then all of us would have praised Kohli. Other than the obvious heart burn of a loss to Pakistan ;-) the feeling was quite positive ! Pakistan deserve praise for the win, though they once again conspired against themselves and had almost lost the match.

    Lol, excuses not needed. A well contested game by both sides. We can't win em all!

    Lol...thats Virat for you! but where are his spikes gone??

    Awesome, Satish! This is hilarious…a classic!! Love how Dhoni and Kohli keep finding excuses and 'positives' in defeats.

    Oh come on Satish. Let Virat breathe. It's his first full series as captain. Besides, the manner of loss matters. The match went to the last over with both results possible and the better team on the day won, period. There's no shame in a loss like that.

    As usual, Without MSD, India's middle order has become brittle. And when these Indian bowlers are going to learn death bowling. Bowling low full tosses, half voleys to tailenders and going for sixes.... Wake up guys.... Rohit wasted a good innings, Dhawan is not looking himself, Rahane is getting out in 20s and 30s in far too many innings.... And no bowler who can threaten an opposition...

    Satish, I am looking for a cartoon on Mortaza's statement that "Bangladesh beating India is not an upset." You can add "Afghanistan beating Bangladesh is an upset." :-)

    Homourous expressions on kohil's face. Great Job!!!

    @ThePasifist10, I am sure Kohli does not take any of this personally - sportsman that he is, he won't mind us having the odd laugh.
