On a related question: The Indian flag has three colors that would make great sport suits. Even a "home" and "away" kit to make sure they are not "too green" to be mixed up with Pakistan... Why do they wear blue instead?
Not allowed to wear/stamp on/destroy etc anything remotely resembling the national flag is one reason for sure..

and please dont ask what happens to the zillion miniature flags that is sold on Independence day...

*ahem that debate was properly put to rest in last few years. Off course there is place for demi Gods like Lara and Bradman but there is only one God

You should check Lara's views on 10dulkar. What 10 has done in all forms of cricket in mind boggling.
It's a shame that The Don could never have been tested against the likes of Lara, Richards, Ponting and Tendo. I suspect he would have risen above them all. At any rate, I doubt his Test average will ever be bettered.

Re: (Cricket World Cup) India-Pakistan [and other matches]

Thanks for the red cards my Pakistani friends. You guys were mouthing off before the match even started on how you were going to beat us and now can't take it when we actually beat you?

Jal gayi? (burning?) Chill and learn to take some fan banter or you come across as cry babies.

There is a difference between some playful banter and going around trolling, looking for a reaction and insulting players.

And if Tenulkar isn't crying on his last ODI, I will be very surprised.

Good question I don't know the answer here is something on the wikipedia

With the advent of the World Series Cup in the 1970s, each team was to don a primary and secondary colour on their uniforms. The Indian team elected to wear light-blue as their primary colour and yellow as their secondary colour. Even during the 1999 Cricket World Cup the secondary colour on the Indian cricket team's clothing has been yellow. However, this has since been removed and replaced with the tricolour. However, in the past the Indian ODI outfits were changed to different shades of blue, mostly darker than the current, and the team donned purple during 1992, and then the sky blue colour for the next decade. Indian team has got a new kit from 2009 which is feroza blue with India written on it in Orange.[34] Currently, from October 2010, the team is once again using a loght blue shade though not as ligh as the previous sky blue one, with India written in orange, and shades of the tri-colour at the sides. The kit sponsor for the Indian Cricket Team is Nike, which in 2005 bought the kit rights in a $27.2 million contract with BCCI.
When playing first-class cricket, in addition to their cricket whites, Indian fielders sometimes wear a sunhat, which is dark blue and has a wide brim, with the BCCI logo in the middle of the front of the hat. Helmets are coloured similarly. Some players sport the Indian flag on their helmet. The current kit sponsor for the Indian team is Nike, Inc.


Also ,

If you look at the tricolour . white is not a favourite Indian colour (it would get dirty easily hence not picked up) (green is more of pakistan's flag colour) wearing Orange/Saffron would be too much, it is mostly for the ''sadhus'' ('' Saint''), So I guess Blue was picked up out of the blue

I didn't say they should cut a hole where the wheel is and wear the flag as a poncho... one could surely use the colors for the suits - just as basically every other nation does in pretty much all other sports...

Ok, negative examples apply... the Singaporean water polo team for example:

I think there are as many arguments that go in favor of Don as against. If I put on my neutral cricket fan cap on briefly then they can't be truly compared as the game has completely changed. Don never played the varied attack that God played on so many different pitches and countries.

Ponting and Lara did not face some of the great WI and Aus bowlers either. God faced them and additionally did not have the pleasure of facing Indian pop gun bowling attack which Ponting and Lara had

I sure won't go around red carding people if I had been crying like you. Which player did I insult? For a Scott you seem to be bit too hurt by the loss. It's only a game and you will eventually get over it


Is it true that Afridi might get the sack? Will it be a one month sack or permanent one? You know how life bans for Pak players last few months only

I think everyone is mising the point here. The real thing that matters in all of this is that the Aussies and England didn't do well
With all that stentch around, Im not surprised they did'nt do well or survived for long.

P.S. Whats with the Red blobs? I thought you were a European Muslim, what connection do you have with Pakistan anyway?

Can't be compared with international cricket.

porsch1909 sure you understood what I said?

Lara- Did not face WI greats like Ambrose, Walsh etc
Ponting- Did not face Warne, McGrath etc
Tendulkar- Had to face all of them. Additionally Tendulkar did not have pleasure of facing Indian bowling which according to Pak fans is the worst in the world
_______________________________

Despite that Tendulkar has excellent average in every country. Ponting's average in India is pathetic.

In my opinion Tendulkar > Lara > Ponting
