    hey SI,
    its really amusing to see you enjoying the cricket match this match.. BTW, it was ferocious display by sehwag and kohli .. Unfortunate for sehwag to get dismissed that way nevertheless, it was fantastic to watch.. Hope you enjoy the rest of the season.. (it could be better if you could reduce the no of postings for a single match.. the worldcup runs for a long 6 weeks hope you could save some of your energy and give us reviews at the end of each innings instead of updating regularly so that you can also enjoy)
    Keep rocking dear enjoy the carnival.. throw away nadusi naigal, pannigal of that copycat menon… Responds::

    We’re enjoying it too! It’d have been nice to see Sehwag get Double Century.

    Will try to have some movie reviews too in-between the matches!

    Most likely, will not watch Nadunisi Naigal. Swines wasted our time yesterday.

      My friend just sent me an SMS – ‘Nadunisi Naaigal – Not worth watching even its poster’…

      Anyhow, I’ll let you reserve your judgment..!!!

      😉 Responds:

      We’re not driving 250 miles again.

      Let Gautam ‘Chutia’ Menon learn to send his prints here (to the U.S.) on time.

      Shows were canceled at Big Cinemas in NJ yesterday because prints didn’t arrive.

      This kind of nonsense never happens with Bollywood (Hindi) films. The Bollywood folks run a very streamlined operation.

      These Tamil film producers are most unprofessional. They waste so much of our time. 🙁

    hey what about the commentary? is it the ESPN star cricket crew or is the englishmen from Skysports? Responds:

    Not sure. Keep hearing Sunil Gavaskar, Ravi Shastri et al.

    Watching, blogging & breakfasting at same time. 😉

      sunil gavaskar takes commentary standards to a new low.
      “singles are like loose change to sehwag”
      “what would sehwag say to sachin?–sorry paaji!”—-on worldwide live telecast? WTF?
      bcci(or is it star sports?) chutiyas dont even care to hire some decent commentators. Responds:

      You write: sunil gavaskar takes commentary standards to a new low.

      That Gavaskar fella used to bug the hell out of us in his batting days with his slooooow scoring.

      It was like watching the corn grow. 🙁

      Painful to watch.
