  1. Not very much, that is what past results have shown whenever India has played overseas results have been awful. Now while playing in India results are very pleasant. Perhaps in future India should try to schedule all matches in India. This is he only answer to avoid all humiliation.
    Lets be little fair as well looks like our boys have worked bit hard as well this time as well.

  2. None of richest people of India including cricket players,commentators,etc,were affected by demonetization.Looks like all were informed before to be safe for themselves by BJP leaders in return for funds as favor.(Boston Globe)

  3. Not even single politician of India were affected by demonetization.In fact many politicians helped black money hoarders for commisions.Strage that Ambani brothers,India’s top companies never even cared about it.That only shows they were already informed about it by BJP leadrs in return for favours.Only poor,middle class and working people were affected.Wonder nothing happened to Indian police forces with all corruptions money stored in their houses vaults.

    • Musher Ali, I wonder where you are getting all your information from. Because it is false. Some of the popular politicians’ names have come up on TV channels for hiding their cash during demonetization. I see many people bashing BJP and Modi for this move but let’s think about it. How many people are there in Indian politics who can be trusted? Modi, since he came in power has made some of the bravest decisions that no other PM of India has been able to take, including demonetization. We all know that this move is to dismantle those who are hiding their income and evading Income Tax and at the same time, bashing those who earn cash with much more hard work than any of these black money makers do. Let us all support this decision and may there be many more historical changes that go under Modi’s name and upcoming politicians of India for the good.

  4. SATYA NADELLA, SUNDAR PICHAI, HIS FRIENDS AT GOOGLE, ALL OTHER ONE TRICK PONIES ARE ALL GOING TO BE ARRESTED, JAILED AND DEPORTED BY THE DOJ, FBI, CIA, AND HOMELAND SECURITY; THESE UPSTARTS ARE GOING TO BE THE REASON FOR THE PARTITION OF INDIA. SATYA NADELLA, AFTER ALL, IS FROM A PRIVATE CAPITATION COLLEGE.
