Call it inexperience or the raging passions of youth, which we may all
have gone/going  through in our own lives when we may have been/are
indiscriminate with our words and actions, one could then certainly
empathize with Sreesanth's outbursts on the field.

Regardless, he has to realize that later during the end of this year,
he is going to face the Pride in its own lair Down Under, a terrifying
prospect for even the best of bowlers..

Sreesanth, is no doubt trying to give the Aussies a taste of their own
medicine, taking a leaf from Steve Waugh's book as he has stated, but
he  should realize that the Aussies are talking the talk after walking
the walk consistently for a whole decade or so of phenomenal
cricketing success.

No doubt, this T20 WC truimph for India has been a shot in the arm for
the success starved Indian players and their pining fans but the bloom
of just a single flower does not herald spring.  India should reserve
this kind of trash talk only after consistently taming the Aussies,
which going by the way the Aussies are storming in the OD50 games so
farm, seems to be a task of a very high order.

Dhoni should certainly rein in the youngster sternly b4 he shows the
temerity to ruffle the feathers of batting monsters like Ponting,
Hayden, Symonds, and Gilchrist and give them good reason to tear apart
the Indian attack when they come visiting Down Under.

In 2003, the Aussies underestimated Ganguly & co when a beleagured and
much maligned Indian bunch came touring and almost ambushed the hosts;
the Aussies somehow managed to tie the series at 1-1 after being
completely blindsided in Adelaide, which incidentally was the last
time the Aussies have LOST A TEST (leave alone a series) on their home
soil.  In this light, all this Indian trash talk would only serve to
kill any possible Indian surprise to be sprung on an unwary and
complacent albeit formidable foe.  (Alas, it may be too late now as
the Aussies will be waiting with insatiable hunger to teach the Curry-
Kings a bitter lesson as happened during the Indian tour in 1999-2000.

i will not be surprised if OZ wins the whole series against the "word
champiions ( har har) by 6-0 (heck include that 20-20 in mumabi too)
what that would do to cricket crazy nation after a windfall in SA is
beyond imagination....
one thing i am sure, this will strengthen the oldies camp yet again.

What it is doing is creating a hell of a lot of interest in the upcoming
Test series. I cant wait to see the bowlers at each others throats .

Sree was much more subdued in ODI 3, presumably because his captain had
slipped him a pill during ODI 2.

If you think Aussies need some sledging from Sreesanth to motivate
themselves to win a home test series against India, something that
they could not do last time, then you are missing something.

You cannot dominate a sport so much for such a long time without
unassisted motivation.

The only thing that Sreesanth's attitude tells me that he is pretty
darn serious about his game. Sure he stretches it a little too much at
time and needs to find a balance so that it does not affect his
performance. Not everyone is John McEnroe.  I don't think he is
abusing and insulting the opponents left, right and center over there
so let's cut him some slack. It makes the game a little more
interesting (as long as it stays withing limits which I think it is,
well within the limits at this time.)

Now India needs to go out there and level the series. This business of
playing with 4 captains with a junior player calling shots is hurting
the performance a little bit. It will take some time before things
reach steady state. Hopefully it happens before next ODI.

Where is Sreesanth's brother when you need him to sing inspiritational
songs? :)

I s'pose that there *is* "some time" before the next O.D.I..

I am an optimist.

I also hope that one day nobody will need a killfile in RSC.

Ok ok... I am a dreamer.

Aussie players were SUBDUED TOO........ presumably because their captain had
slipped them double dosage of pills during ODI2

Evidence?

We have evidence of Dhoni administering treatment.  The pill weighed around
5? oz and was injected into Sree's helmet at around 190km/h.  That's based
on my summation that the ball travelled around 18m in the 0.36 seconds that
passed from the moment the ball left the middle of Microsoft's bat to the
moment that it collided with DK's noggin.  That's faster than Thommo ever
hurled them down.  No wonder Sree only had time to turn his head and pray to
the deity of his choice.
