@nampally - SL lost to NZ B team in SL last year, NZ is complete different team in NZ than in Asia. One off win against IND doesn't make SL & PAK very good teams.

MSD hater have started hating Kohli now. Is it because Kohli also did not select substandard players like tiwari, pandey, Binni and others? Deal with it no sensible captain wants any substandard cricketer in the team. Selecotrs on the otherhand have shown biased by selecting Binni, Mishra, Tiwari, Pandey and all Sharmas, Rohit, Mohit and Ishant.

Hillarious & Factual! I would have added "We are still amongst the Bottom 3 in the Major Cricketing nations". India lost to NZ, SL & Pakistan. Only WI & BD are below India! That is really "Shameful" despite all this talk of "Showing Character" ! #1 ranked ODI team & WC winners should live up to their ranking & NOT lose to every team below their ranking. That is where the Character Shows, Mr. Kohli.

Satish, you should make cartoon to compliment Srilankan and Pakistani team victories. Especially you can make a lot of fun about Afridi innings against india and Bangladesh. You made a cartoon when Afridi record of fastest century was broken and you mentioned that Afridi no worries you will still be remembered. Now it's time to make that cartoon sequential that there are many reasons to keep his name in books of cricket. Especially Indians and Bangla deshi brothers will never never and never forget him.

You nailed it Satish... :D But, to be honest, you shouldn't be mocking Kohli this much... Yes, he's an arrogant brat who doesn't give the credit where it's due, finds the excuses like MSD but VK has delivered so many times for his age... I believe, with time, he'll come up as an aggressive captain... A Sri Lankan...

Dear Satish, to many on Asia / Asia Cup lately ( last 4 continously), pl. shift ur focus in the other part of the world, some very interesting games / series / incidents are going on buddy..

Captain Tuk Tuk, and will you chase 270+ without Kohli? Not so sure..

There are also some fabulous thing about Virat.Try to caricature those things also.It seems more(back to back three cartoons on kohli) of bashing to gain Brownie points from other nation fans.This comment might not get published.But i must say i would like to draw some sketches of cartoonist with heading "Get a life man" . Virat roxx!!!!

Hilarious as always !!! .. I really hope that as an Indian Team Captain, Kohli would concentrate on the available 15 players rather than a select few + the rest to fill up the playing 11 ..

Hilarious Satish. I like your cartoons. They are apt to the current situation. For those who take this cartoon seriously you need to understand that cartoon are made to mean fun. Secondly even if it was taking a dig at someone it was rightly done so. Third we need to accept the fact and move on and not live in a pipe dream where India is still the best. Honestly if you can't win a ODI series comprehensively in your home country like NZ did you are not even considered be the 3rd best.

Yes India is 3rd best team of Asia but would like to see Pakistan winning without Afridi's magic I doubt they'll chase 240+ without Afridi's contribution :)

One inconsequential loss in Asia Cup does not warrant this cartoon ... India still is a good team for thers to contend with ... we will show it in WT20???

time is on his side ... and he will come back much stronger

Best of VK by Satish are the ones with spikes....wonder why this sober look. I haven't seen VK in the series. has he actually changed his hairstyle?

Posted by   on (March 6, 2014, 12:36 GMT)

3 out of 4 cartoon belong to VK, its him all over the place

Learning starts with admitting. Virat Kohli may be a god gifted player but he definitely is not a leader. He tried to copy MSD and he couldn't get it right. If MSD had applied same techniques the results would have been different. Because MSD and Virat are two different people so mere copying was never gonna work.

They never going to drop the big 3 program, instead accept the change for sake of cricket development in other countries, that big 3 is going to come with.,.,
