Why do the organizers and the commentators always say the fan is at loss and nobody cares about fans and fans easily forgive! I think nobody really cares for the fans be it the cricketers, organizers or commentators! All of them are there to make their pot of money! U will rarely again find a fan ever care much about cricket again after this controversy!

no matter how much billing you give to south africa, its pretty clear looking at their squad that they don't have a player with an x-factor as was evident in the last T20 WC, somebody like a dhoni for india or an ajmal for pakistan or a pollard for WI. those are players who can win any match from any position. with due respect to de villiers, he has traditionally fell flat when the moment is big, so on my opinion he is not a big-match player. brace yourselves SA fans, this is going to be another disappointment for you..!!

Aakash Chopra: "Dhoni is not know for hard decisions". what ever decisions he has taken, has worked in most cases and INdia is a force only because of Dhoni.

Murali Vijay is a blow hot blow cold player and India could do well with some stability in English conditions. Pujara would have been a good choice

let us see how vijay is performing against south africa and the west indies. my opinion is that they could have picked pujara instead of vijay. if yuvi would have been picked in the middle order slot, dinesh karthik would open the innings with dhawan or rohit sharma. u need another express pace bowler like umesh yadav who blew away the aussies yesterday in the warm up game. Probably we are missing varun aaron's fiercy pace and swing.

Picking up Vijay is a major concern to all Indian fans keeping Rahane out of the team. Selection has to be made for Indian team not for CSK team.
