Overreaction Monday ft Ajinkya ‘skipper’ Rahane, Robin Uthappa and the Australian ‘way-out’

We are back once again, not with football overreaction this time but cricket, where everything has turned into heaven for the Indian fans in the last week while the Australians have gone underground. But more than India and Australia, we have had IPL retentions ruining the celebrations.

Satire Saturday | Ravi Shastri sends '23 Yards hampers' to detractors with personalized letters

‘How ya doing, mate?’ hits Michael Clarke’s WhatsApp as he wakes up in the morning. It was an unknown number, thus Clarke, the celebrity that he is, had no reason to reply and put the phone away and went out for a morning jog. Hardly did he realize it was the mistake he would be regretting long.

Truthful Tuesday | Why picking Washington Sundar for England Tests will set a bad precedent

It's difficult to gauge what's more rare. A net bowler making his Test debut in a high profile series, or him going to take big scalps of Warner and Smith among four wickets in the game and a crucial half-century to keep the team alive. Whatever it may be, it has fallen alright for India.

Throwback Thursday | Sharpshooter Eranga ends Anderson's resistance to help Sri Lanka to an English heist

There’s something about Headingley, where magical things happen every once in a while - be it 2005 Ashes or the 2019 Ben Stokes miracle - but this has to top it all. Sri Lanka have a real opportunity of sealing a historic heist-like series win in England, a country which has always haunted them.

What if Wednesday | What if Ajinkya Rahane was dropped after 2017 Sri Lanka series

It was the chilly winter of 2017 when Sri Lanka came calling. Like they usually do, but this was the absolute pinnacle. India had just made an all-format tour to the Emerald Isle, blanking then 9-0, but once again? The cynosure was at a different point.

Truthful Tuesday | More than ever, Indian management and fans need to trust Navdeep Saini now

2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 - four years where Indian cricket was all over the place when it came to giving debuts to pace bowlers from the domestic circuit. Varun Aaron, Jaydev Unadkat, Abhimanyu Mithun, Pankaj Singh, and Vinay Kumar - five bowlers who were discarded before reconsidered.
