Its now time for DADA to get a thumbs down from you. All indians who are serious cricket fans, vividly remember these two comments:

"He is the big fat elephant in the dressing room, that nobody wants to talk about"

and just before the last south africa series predicting utter failure for laxman "Somewhere down the line logic must prevail, i dont expect laxman to perform well in SA"

There are countless other loose talks.

I really dont understand how a site as good as cricinfo allows posting such disrespectful comments and opinions. I know that the policy of cricinfo's posting disallows posting rude comments against authors.

But, if anything i posted in this comment is untrue - then i please request cricinfo to publish this. There should be strong criticism and condemnation for people who denigrate national heroes.

He says - bengalis will be happy that DADA is back - well, how many bengalis were there in the hyderabad crowd today?

I tried to be at my polite best. Sorry!
