India vs Bang ( 19 Mar 2015) ODI World Cup 2015
Nasser Hussain, Rahul Dravid and Shane Warne are in the commentary box.
The context of this discussion: Since India have been playing so well until now, Nasser Hussain was unsure whether they would be able to emulate their performance in the semi-final against Australia, a much difficult opponent.
Nasser Hussain : Have your boys peaked too early, Rahul?
Rahul : Better to peak early than not peak at all. You have to peak early to make the quarters actually. That’s sort of the rule of the tournament(referring to England’s first round exit).
Shane Warne : You didn’t expect that, did you Nass?
Nasser Hussain : From you maybe, not from the nicest man in world cricket.
Rahul : Sorry, I’ve been coping with it since 2007, wanted to give it back to someone.
India vs. Pakistan,ODI World CUP 2015 :
Pakistan were 5 for 103 chasing a target of 301! Misbah and Afridi on the crease; Rahul Dravid and Shoaib Akhtar in the commentary box!
Here is what happened:
Akhtar : Pakistan in very big trouble, the only ray of hope is Shahid Afridi
Dravid : If all the hopes are on someone as inconsistent as Afridi, then Pakistan are definitely doomed
India vs Bang , ODI World CUP 2015 :
Nasser Hussain : I’m pretty sure that England will do pretty well in 2019 WC !!
Shane Warne : Why did you think so Nasser ?
Nasser Hussain : Home teams have an advantage in the world cup and tend to reach the finals of the world cup. So Rahul , since the next world cup in 2019 is in UK what would be the teams reaching the finals ?
Dravid : Ireland vs Scotland
since they would be home teams as well..
Note : Don’t mess with Dravid on the field or off the field 🙂
