Legal use of the rules.

What sense does it make if we have the resources and don't use them?

Tread carefully

None.

India vs Sri Lanka transcends sports. Its a rivalry of such uniqueness it occupies its own personal spot on the space time continuum, allowing it to transcend futile issues such as time, period and location.

In future generations when our future selves create timetravel and go back in time to the time of Jesus, they will walk onto the shores of Lake Galilee, a cool warm breeze in the air, and witness Rohit Sharma hitting Gunaratne over his head for 4 to seal a 10 wicket win.

They will go back to the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, only to find no German, British or Frenchmen present, but rather it will be the BCCI and SLCB CEO's signing a MOU for a 9 match ODI series with 6 T20's to follow.

Desperate, doing anything to escape the monotony, the sheer inescapable grasp of India vs SL, they will turn to prehistoric times only to discover, even in Pangea, Suranga Lakmal is indeed present, bowling short and wide to Virat Kohli as he notches his third consecutive triple hundred of this particular series.

At this stage, acceptance will set in. There is no escape. There is nothing else. India vs SL IS life, it IS cricket, is IS indeed the universe in which we coeexist and thus, we may achieve paradise, taking glee in every Mendis, Prasanna or Lakmal we see pop up on the Sri Lankan teamsheet, and every Sharma for India who gets to boost his stats.

Big Brother is watching, watching Sri Lanka vs India.

AND SO WILL YOU.

Windies gets too much leeway for being supposedly "Cool", they often act like thugs on the field, if gayle or Samuels were Indians or from the subcontinent, people would have criticized the living daylight out of them.

The only reasons why they play each other so often is due because Sri Lanka have massive financial problems, and that India can have its players boost their stats. When it comes to the major sides, Sri Lanka are the easiest opponents for India, so it makes sense to play them more often than not.

Don't get me wrong, I did not mean to offend you, just pointing out the obvious. Kohli receiving boatloads of flak for asking a counter question to a cocky journalist, imagine what would have happened if he had harassed a woman like gayle or openly disrespected someone like Warne in a press conference like Samuels did.

and about thuggery check out this video, I understand and admire showing passion on field but this is just pure bullying.

No offense taken.

Some of the behavior from our boys are sometimes cringe worthy. I noticed that time after time....but most of the time....

...Thuggery should be replaced with Swagger

Fair enough.

EDIT: Removed my last comment as I posted it without reading your complete post.

Great post I imagined Dr Who using his Tardis to watch Ishant Sharma bowl through the millennia. Maybe, to use a recent Dr who reference, the two teams have fallen through the doctor's timeline in Trenzalore.

Easy to mock now, but there was a time India couldn't buy a victory on Sri Lankan soil.
