Nutcutlet, that was really intelligent and focussed. Even the choice of words thingy actually made me realise the actual meaning of it too. Thanks!

Always been a huge fan of RD. This interview is more important in revealing the depth of his character (pls,the word ' personality' is so superficial & entirely inappropriate for RD) than the content of his answers. As he was speaking I noted the following characteristics: articulate, perceptive, courteous, modest (why do Indian speakers of English use the word 'humble' when they mean modest, BTW?) & realistic. In England we would say that he has no 'side'; i.e. He is a cricketer first & an Indian second, IMO. Of course, the questions were Indo-centric, but that's fine by me as I recognise that India's 'cricketing health' is of paramount importance in world cricket which is why I contribute to Indian threads when I hope I have something meaningful to say or ask. The DRS question was rather skated over which was a pity. It makes me wonder whether there was some pre-interview briefing on that specific topic. A question on women's cricket 'health' (esp. in the sub-cont) wd have been good.

There was a question regarding Rahul's opinion on DRS. I thought we did not get to hear his opinion.Did I miss it?

As one of the participants I can say we did not hear what Rahul was saying in reply to our questions due to poor audio during the hangout. All in the panel did an amazing job considering we were almost 'deaf'.
