But did it cost test matches. Please prove it. I don't recollect one
test match where SMG's slow scoring rate cost us a test match. OTOH
the pain of gifting away the wicket last Sunday evening will probably
hurt us for ever.

Oh yeah, Roshan Diwakar is a great talented cricketer. But for some bad
luck he should have taken the position of DBV. Some gems of Roshan:-
1. Kapil developed a bowling style which made him less effective outside
India even where conditions suit fast bowlers.
2. ODI victory = test victory.
3. India is in top 3 test countries.

Last time I checked we lost the madras test. Now who is the loser.

Oh really, pray tell from where you got this idea. From your local
doodhwala or paanwala.
Year back (around 1989) Akram was asked about the best players he has
bowled to in test cricket. He told SMG and Viv Richards.
SMG:- "a technically perfect batsman. you have to toil for his wicket.
he just will not give you any chance. How I wish I could get him out in
Viv Richards "a batsman who can destroy any attack but you always get a
feeling that you have a chance against him bcos he use to take too many
> Sachin, please dont listen to cricket-ignorants.
Oh yeah please listen to this self-claimed university player.
If this is the calibre of university players in India, is it any
surprise we are such a pathetic cricket side. Afterall guys like Roshan
only eventually end up playing for india.
More than 90% of your posting don't make any sense and you call yourself
a former univ player.
