Participant #1:
Got it. Forget transfer madness is finally over. Who are the winners and who are the losers? Have Arsenal finally found answers to their defensive voice? Who took the best bargain out of Barcelona garage sale? Is this the weakest you were testing team in a long, long time and have buyers moved on to Livestick to fill their squad? In cricket, we discuss India's incapable middle order and bizarre selection choices. Also, we discuss Indian athletes. Impressive show in Paralympics 2020. Let's go. Here we go. Welcome to our Transfer special podcast. Where Ishan and I basically going to Pat ourselves for predicting how crazy this window is going to be. So. Hi, Shan. What's up? Hi, Bala. Oh, man, I'm actually glad it's over. Yeah. Before getting into the transfer deadline craziness, let's quickly address Christiano Ronaldo is officially becoming all time highest goal scorer in men's international football. We need to mention that because there are a lot of people saying that. No, it's Christine Sinclair. We understand Christine Sinclair has called a ton of goals, but yeah, Christine Ronaldo two goals. My God, he scored two goals and actually missed a penalty as well. He missed a penalty but slapped a defender and Irish defender, but he's still winning again. And this is what we were discussing in our last called last podcast. Right. That Ronaldo. However much he ages, he will always be Mr. Clutch, scoring in the 95th minute for Portugal, winning them the game, meaning he's done it so many times for Portugal, for his clubs. It's just unbelievable. And Congratulations to him. What a player are now officially number one. Guinness Book of World Record, by the way, tagged them on a tweet. So he's now officially a record holder there. So unbelievable. What a career. What a career. Yeah. The goal is code against Ireland and World Cup qualifiers. So just to appraise you guys, the World Cup qualifiers are going on right now. When I just started, this is for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. We'll talk about this when we have some important games going on. I mean, France played a game yesterday and Netherlands played a game. So that's going on. We'll talk about that later. Now, since we have put this aside, since we have given the accolades that Christian Ronaldo deserves, we'll talk about the crazy transfer window. And we'll start from the League where they spend £1.1 billion in total, which is actually about 11% less than the last window. Last window spent about $1.3 billion, which is incredible. I mean, Arsenal turning out to be the highest net spenders. I mean, I should say net spend. I need to put that word very clearly. They spend about £131.8 million net on the transfer deadline day. They signed another centreback or right back? I think it's paid both center back and right back for Bologna. Bologna. Let me get this correct. Taka Hiro to MyASU I hope I got this right. I mean, I have to agree that I haven't seen him much, but what I have heard is he's a pretty good defender. He's one of those physical defenders, good in the air. So he did well against Ronaldo and Lukaku, apparently in the League last season. But I'm not very sure how they want to do for Aspen. When Bala says he's not seen much of him, Balla means he's not seen him at all. But it's another one of those signings with Arsenal have come up with which nobody has an idea what the logic is behind this. Yes, they needed a central defender since their main defenders, both Gabrielle and who's the other one? Who's the central defender? Rob holding rock. Yeah, but Gabrielle primarily is injured, so they needed a backup to that. And Mari, who started his Arsenal career in horrendous fashion. So they obviously needed backup. But I didn't expect this. Like, come on, this is probably Arsenal level, right? They're buying from Bologna. Yeah, but see, this is a transfer window where we had Messi, Ronaldo, Lukaku, grazeman. We'll come to Greysman and Messi when we cover La Liga and Liga. But Chelsea, even after spending about? 100 million, close to? 100 million for Lukaku, the net spend is £3.1 million. That's their net spend. They are incredible. I really think they're one of the most well managed clubs in Europe right now in terms of how they manage their finances, the way they buy, the way they sell. Mostly the people the players are selling, they're going at really good values as well. And obviously the loaning strategy, which all of us find is crazy. They can create 700 teams out of their loans, but it somehow works, it comes back and they keep winning. Yeah. I mean, the Kudos, all the place should all go to the technical team headed by Marina Granovsky. She's amazing. She's been doing an amazing job. She was able to sell Hazard for 130,000,000, Tammy Abraham for 40 odd million to Roma, Fikaya Tomori, about $31 million to Milan. I mean, this is incredible. From Chelsea to me, they are clearly the winner of this transfer window, at least amongst EPL club. To me, they are the winners. And they were able to secure the loan signing of yet another midfielder, adding to their never ending list of midfielder Saul Niguez, who's going to be a great value. I mean, you already have Kante, you already have Georgia COVID. Now, adding to that, yet another player who's going to bring in something different, who's going to bring something different that the other three does not have. How do you see, where do you see fitting? I mean, can't disojinio. So all playing together, I think Saul Luge is probably going to be one of the signings of the season and I'll tell you why. Sal Noge was probably Atletico Madrid was probably the only Spanish player who played the Premier League style. He had it all. He used to be hard hitting, he used to score great goals. He's a provider, used to do it all, a lot of running. But what actually Chelsea can benefit from him is his versatility. Like in the last season and in a couple of games this season, in the preseason he was playing left back for Simone. He hated that. That's one of the reason why he wanted to move. But this is the value add Sal Nouguese can give. He can actually replace, for example, Kante Georginio. Midfield is an amazing midfield. So he can give Georginio, for example, a break. He can actually play a number ten role as well. If Mason Mount needs a break, he can play number ten. He can be a provider. So I think it's probably one of the best underplayed signings of this transfer window because Sal Noge was the talk of the town two, three years ago. He was one of the odd properties in midfield in Europe. Last two seasons he's been had a bit of a lull. So I think this can boost his star value because he's definitely a superstar. Yeah. The other English club, which actually did extremely well in the transfer, we talked about the club a lot, which is Manchester United. They made three Marky signings, I would say Sancho Varan and obviously the Cristiano Ronaldo effect also. But I still think they should have gone for sale. Someone like Sal Niger has thought of gone a little hard on him because that's where they need a player. Christie Arnoldo, I'm not sure whether it's a needed signing in terms of on field sporting merit. Yes, it was an obvious signing for all the other reasons, but from on field sporting merit, they should have gone hard on a midfielder. I completely agree because say, United are playing the Champions League this season. So all in all, they're going to be playing for four trophies. They're very thinly spread across in the midfield. Right. You have Fred McTominay Matic and Pogba MATATO. I don't know if he's still a player. He's more of a supporting staff. Fred is like a severe weak link right now in that team. And what happens is somebody of those midfielders get injured because they are so stacked with wingers who can attack, not midfielders who can attack. It's going to be very tricky because suddenly you'll have a situation where you have injuries, but then you have Rashford Greenwood, Marcia Ronaldo, Cavani, all available. And I'm not mentioned Bruno Fernandez. So where do you fit that in? Another smart thing, they got a good amount, €30 million per pounds for Daniel James, which is a great amount. And selling it to their rivals leads United. So that's a good piece of business as well. But midfield is going to be weak. There's a conspiracy on why they sold Daniel James, because Christian Ronaldo need to get the number seven Jersey which is now being assigned to Kawani. Now because the Premier League has started. You can't change the Jersey number unless there is a quote unquote special reason, like Premier League can provide an exemption. Now, Kawani used to wear 21 number 21 Jersey for Uruguay. Now who was wearing 21 Jersey for Manchester United? Daniel James.

Participant #1:
Wow. But it's a very United thing to do for Ronaldo to let go of a player just to alert a number. But it's not such an unbelievable story. Yeah, but also on the other hand, they are stacked up pretty much on upfront. I mean, Daniel James may not get a lot of game time, so it also makes sense for him to go to a club where he can at least get some time where he can get some minutes. You can say they could have sent him on loan, but yeah, you're getting 30 million for Daniel James. It is a good sign. It's a good sale, actually. At the end of the day, Manchester United, with these signings, they have again actually established their holders a top four team. But I still doubt that they are a very serious contender for the title. I mean, they have increased their probability slightly higher, but I still think they are not up to the Mark of Chelsea or City. On the other hand, they went all out on Harry Kane. In fact, this entire window for City was about only two players, Harry Kane and Jack Grealish. Jack Grealish went pretty smooth. It was probably one of the smoothest 100 million deals I've ever seen. There were no friction anywhere. It just started and ended very smoothly. But the Hurricane deal actually balanced it. It had all the drama, all the controversies, and in the end, it also didn't happen, actually. So City again, getting into a season without a proper number nine, will it work? I have my doubts. I have my doubts this season. Yeah. And we won't talk about this too much because we've done this in the past. It worked last season, but it might not work for every single tournament this season. Gabriel Jesus is a great player, but he's not a superstar and that's what City are now aspiring. If they have Champions League and Champion League aspirations, they need a number nine, maybe. You never know the situation where they are saying the January transfer window, they might go for a center forward. And I think the one we really discussed was Danny Ings. He would have fit perfectly well with Part role coming into score clutch goals. He would have been a good signing. You never know. That might happen in January. Yes. I mean, it looks like Gabriel Jesus is going to play a winger the last two games. He did. He did pretty well. He gave at least two, three assist, Ferran Torresco two, three goals. But see, it's against Norwich and Arsenal, probably the two worst defensive teams in Premier League right now. So you can't take much away from those two games. Now, talking about the other top four challenger are probably one of the title challenges. Liverpool were very silent in the market. They signed only one player, Hi, Brian Konate from RB Life. But other than that, they didn't do much business. In fact, they sold Shaqiri, they sent a couple of other players on loan, but again, pretty dull window. But again, a lot of people are talking about how Matthew Van Dyke, Joel Gomez, they're all quote unquote, like new signings. But I still believe Liverpool should have gone for an attacking player. Maybe they were looking for the right target. They were in getting it. We have seen this from club before. Unless he gets the player he wants, he doesn't go for a backup signing. He always waits for the player that he wants. We don't know. There were news that they were looking at Jeremy Doku, there were news that they were looking at Jared Bowen from West Ham, but it didn't happen. Nothing that happened. So we'll have to wait and see whether Liverpool are actually going to get more goals from the front floor. And I myself, I have my doubts. So I don't think there are a choice of challenges. There's an outside chance. But, yeah, Chelsea and Man City for me at this point of time, I agree. And I think just to end our chat about the Premier League, I think the one signing I think everyone missed what would have been a great signing, especially for, say, United, like we discussed, was Declan Rice. Yeah, been a great addition in that midfield. He's bound to get a big transfer one day. Might be in United in January, you never know. Yeah. Other clubs are also actually did pretty well. Tottenham not letting Cain out itself is a great win for them. And they also signed a couple of good defenders, Brian Hill from Sevilla, and they were able to secure a right back on the day on a transfer deadline day from Barcelona. And they also let go of the dead weight search over here. So they did pretty well. And they are on top of the table right now. Lester did pretty good business. West Ham did amazing business. But the one signing that took all the headlines away was Newcastle signing Santiago Munoz, inspired from the Gold movie. So that means Isha like in two seasons time, Riyan muttered, are going to sign Santiago mono. I don't know how I feel about that, but, yeah, Mini and Zidane will come back to play alongside him. But he's from Mexico, he's from Mexico. It's a proper story. Let's see if he brings Champions League football to Newcastle again. I didn't let that step one. Yeah. So what's your early prediction? I mean, winner, any preferences may not be one or two preferences. You're talking about the transfer winners or League? No, I'm like League winners. League winners. For me, I feel this year is going to be Chelsea. It's actually part of the script. A new manager comes in, wins the European Championship, wins the League and then gets fired. That's how it works for Chelsea. So this year, I feel, I think the biggest testament, the show of strength they had was against Liverpool, going down ten men and showing the defensive resilience they did was incredible. And I think that I think that really settled it for me about the depth of squad. And now they can even fight a game where they're down and out. Unbelievable. So for me, it's going to be Chelsea, then City. Obviously, City is going to be up there than United and then Liverpool. Yeah, I think I agree with you. I also go with Chelsea because even I thought until the signing of South Korea, I was still like Chelsea City, 50 50. But City not signing a center forward and Chelsea signing Salt Niggers definitely put Chelsea ahead for me. And, yeah, United, Liverpool and maybe Tottenham can challenge. But I don't think they have it in them to go for the entire season. They might be in Top for a while, but they will drop down signing of the season. I think I've already mentioned, I believe you think Sal Niguez is the signing of the season in the Premier League. I'm still going for Lukaku. Lukaku is still my signing of the season. Let's move on to our La Liga, where Barcelona basically opened up a garage sale. So you're like, Please, they have all these players

Participant #1:
you see in the movies. Laporta basically set up a lemonade stall in front of the garage and said, Please buy lemonade, I will give you lemonade, you take Griezmann, I will give you lemonade, you take Yax Moriba, you take anyone, anyone you want, just go for it. If you saw that when the window closed, that tweet was, yeah, we registered Sergio Aguero, please. Sergio Aguero doesn't want to be there anymore. Yeah, that's the biggest win for Barcelona out of this transfer window, registering Sergio Aguero and getting Luke De Young on loan from Sevilla. See, Barcelona had a lot of players out of their wage, but that was their primary, their priority this season, to get their wage bill reduced to a certain level where they can register players they were able to take messy of their wage bill. Now they have taken grazing off their wage bill. Pk, Sergioto Busquets, Jordi Alba, all have apparently agreed for a reduction in their pay salary. You still have dead weights like debile, who's again injured. There is Cotino, who's there. But yes, when it comes to the signings, Eric Garcia still has a long way to go to prove himself. But Memphis Depay has started really well. If I have to find one silver lining amongst all the bad stuff going on, that's probably the only silver lining. Han Safari coming back from injury could be pretty good. But Barcelona, Yeah, I'm extremely happy that it has gone to him. I deservedly saw the next big thing going on about how Barcelona should retire the number ten. And I was completely against it because it's a very American thing in sport. It's not applies to football. Otherwise they should have retired the number ten for marriage on a post. Maradona. Yeah. So that doesn't work. I'm very happy actually that it went to ansupati is probably the most deserving. I hope he's properly recovered from his injury and show because his addition would actually be he would probably be the player for Barcelona this season if he's back in full shape. Yeah. Right now, since the transfer window is done, like everything, the one thing that Barcelona fans have for Barcelona is hope. There is nothing much left out there. So hopefully they are able to get the maximum out of this team and at least finish in top four. I really don't see them challenging for any title, at least for one or two seasons until they get their finances back. I don't see Barcelona going for any big players or going for any big trophies, but it's a vicious cycle, Barley. I think just to end this, it's a vicious cycle. Once you lose that ambition to get your finances in order, right, suddenly the star players don't want to come to you once you have got your finances in order. If you look at AC Milan, they had a four or five year cycle. When they went almost they were broke and then they started rebuilding, rebuilding. They reached the Champions League, but they still don't attract that level of talent. Say, what are you Venters or even Inter Milan in the area? Yes, but they could be in that phase. It's an interesting phase. We'll have to see how Barstone get over this. Hopefully they will see how it happens. But talking about their arts revels realm and again, they also had a lot of players leaving them. See this COVID has actually affected a lot of clubs and Bass on her the most. In fact, Bastarna's finances were unstable pre COVID. Covid actually exposed them pretty badly. But Real Madrid finances are also actually pretty much exposed, even though they were able to make a slight profit like less than a million tone profit. But still their finances are also hit. And that's why they had to let go of players like Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane. I mean, they had to let go of their entire first line of defense, but they also bought someone like David Alaba and the transfer deadline. They probably, I would say the best transfer deadline, day, signing like proper signing sought loan was Eduardo Kamavinga, the 18 year old, 17 year old. How old is he? Not defensive midfielder. He's actually a central midfielder. I would say from Ran. He's more like watch Buckling Georgina. He's actually a lot like Pogba. Yeah, he's very good. I didn't see him a lot like I saw him in one or two games in a champion three last season. He's pretty good. I saw him play for France once or twice. He's really good. There's still a lot more to come from him. I mean he's just 18 so there's still a lot more to come from him. He's still not that level, but it will be interesting to see him battling for places against the likes of Mortgage or Crews. But this is a very smart transfer because this is a direct succession plan by Paris for Mortgage and Cruise by getting well, we're renewing him, renewing well wedding's contract to 2026 and now getting Camo in your central midfield is pretty much sorted that way. So I think that's smart. Casimiro still has a couple of more years left in him. So I think this is a very good signing for Real Madrid. Yeah, hopefully now see Real Madrid again, as I said, lost Ramos Varan, they lost Brahim Diaz again. Brahmdyas wasn't playing anyway. He was out on loan with AC Milan and that became a permanent transfer. They sent a couple of other players on loan I think Audrey Zola was out on loan to Fiorentina and then there was another player, I don't remember much. He was also out on loan. Mariano was told to go to Reyo Valacano but he refused. So I don't know if he's still there or not. Odega, obviously we know Sebayos is in our squad this season. I don't know how many games he'll get. Actually tried everything to get Babe in this season but it looks like they did that just to send out a message that we are in for you. I wasn't very sure where they are going to get that 220,000,000 their final bid. Psa clearly said no, we are not selling him anymore. That was quite a Bluff. I think Paris doing a Bluff. He knew he would get rejected but he just wanted to show that we have 200 million. Great. So the biggest plus point for Real Motors this season I believe is all he plays. Coming back like Bail coming back, hazard coming back from injury. So it depends on how those players actually perform. Esco, after a long absence has come back to life, so that will be a good thing. Now talking about their city rivals, who I believe has the best quad by far in La Liga this season, especially with the addition of Griezmann right now they're just incredibly strong. See they were favorites before Griezmann because of how depleted Barcelona and Real Madrid are. But just now with the coming of Griezmann and to be very honest, he is not a new signing for them. He knows the culture, he knows how to play under Simone, something that he couldn't adjust to in Barcelona. Because if you have to define his time at basketball, it was a pretty object failure because he is a talent and now he just needs to go back, get his confidence back because the system he belongs there. There was never any other option for Griezmann other than Atletico Madrid and he's 30, meaning I'm surprised. Like, I thought you'd be younger, but he's 30, so this is his chance. This will probably be the first time in history Atletico retain a title because they will definitely get the squad for it. Yeah, they also signed Rotrigo de Paul, Matthias Konhan and a few other signings. Severeea made some interesting signings. They signed Rafa Mayer. Actually, Atletico was in for Rafa Mer. Rafa Mer came from Bull, St, Thomas Delaney from Dortmund and they swapped Lamela Lamela who actually had a pretty interesting start. So La Liga, we both are going with Athletico favorites. Yes, Unfortunately Realm is definitely top four. I think Sevilla also I think definitely top four will remain the same. Whatever happens, I'm telling you, the top three will remain the same. It'll just keep switching. But I still believe Valencia can have an impact this season. Hopefully coming back from their miserable time for the last two years. Sharia actually had a very interesting season, actually very interesting transfer market. Not just many of their managers changed, but they also signed a lot of players. They had to let go of a lot of plays. I mean, we talked about series losing all their best players, best forward, best goalkeeper, best defender, everyone's gone. But still the Milan clubs did excellent business, in fact, especially interpret of losing some big talent. They also made some smart signings. They signed Densel Dumfries as a replacement for Hakimi. They signed Your Queen Quarry as a replacement of Lukaku. They got Jacob, they got Chalonoblu both for free, so they did pretty well. They also started pretty well under inzagi AC. Megan, on the other hand, did some really interesting businesses. They got Touri Juru again who had a very interesting start. Mike my replacement for donoruma Brahim Diaz, we just talked about it. So they also did pretty well. Roma Brian Diaz, who's been scoring for Fun for Admiral for the last couple of seasons. Yeah, Brian Diaz has been pretty good. In fact, I remember watching him play against Uvintest last season, one of the very important games and he scored a spectacular goal. Roma under Maureen, you have started well and also signed some interesting players, Tammy Roy, Patricia. And the main part is they were able to let go of a lot of dead weight like Geko left, Astoria left, Pedro left. So we don't know how that's going to turn, but hopefully it works out well for them. But events was a bit of a disappointment. I mean, we all know that they are also pretty financially stuck. They also have a lot of problems financially. So they had to let go of Ronaldo, which eventually they did. But I believe they signed a pretty interesting player in Locatelli, who will provide very important, who will fill a very important hole in the midfield, which they were missing for a very long time. So that's again, as I said in the last podcast, your most informed player is Alvaro Morata. I don't need to say anything else, but we still have Kiesa, so Kiesa is the only hope, I believe, who's scoring 30 goals for them this season. We'll see. What if Duballa suddenly wakes up and produces a great performance? Yeah, I can say Morata will miss 30 open goal chances, but I don't think he can score 30 goals just to end up serious talk. I think it's a severely depleted event this season. I don't think in recent memory I've actually seen such a weak event squad as a whole, because even if you look at their defense, they are 50 and 75 respectively in age and the keeper is an ex Arsenal reject. I still do not believe how Juventus have chosen as their number one keeper. Still, it's unbelievable, but that's how it is and I worry for them this season, to be very honest. Obviously they're going to be in the top four in this area, but I think they are going to be a couple of embarrassing results for them over and above the Empoli result last week. Yeah, I thought before the beginning of the season Inter are not going to challenge for the title, but having seen them play the first two games and the kind of signings they have made and the fact that we are not looking good, I'm still going for Enter to regain the title. I agree, and I have a slight hope that Roma can enter top four again, but I believe the likes of Napoli Lazio might fall out, but this will be a very interesting season in Syria. This is a pretty balanced season. I don't see a clear favorites. Actually a week you went as is good for this area, talking about a team that won eight or nine League titles back to back and talking about them going weak. Well, let's talk about Buyin, who continued to deplete the teams around them like if not Dortmund, it's live sick this time. How could they sign someone like Sabbathar for 16. 17 million money? It's senseless. It makes sense for people who do not know how well or how good a player Sabitzer is. You need to watch a couple of highlights on YouTube about how important he is to the entire operation of RB Leipzig. He makes them tick. He's in the center of everything going on at Leipzig. And who was their manager last season? Julian Nagilzman, who now is the manager of buying Munich. So this is literally amazing. Two player signing for buying Munich because Sabitzer in the center of midfield will run the show for them and you have a monster and center forward anyway if you don't have any challenges. Anyway. I think this is more of a Champions League play for buying than Bundesliga because Bundesliga is already wrapped up with two games done. They already signed up from them. Dortmund, Sol, Sancho, we all know that. But they got Daniel Malin like a typical Dortmund signing, a young player who again will be sold for 50 60 million a year or two later. Livestig again, had a lot of exits. But then we talked about them signing Jacks Murray as a replacement for Marcel Sabitzer. So again, Bundesliga again. Looks like a walk in the park for buying once again 10th title. So yeah, I don't see any surprises there in Bundesliga, Liga and transfer. It's about only one team and that one team. We have talked a lot about that team on how well they have done this season. So let's just round off with one line that by how many points they are going to win or by 32nd game or by 33rd game they will win the League and wrap it up and move on. I will say I'll put it another way, if they don't do it by the 32nd game, it's a huge failure because with a squad like that, there's literally no competition. You have Leon playing really well in the last couple of gamers internal challenges. But what are you going to say with that squad? Just the front three now you secured Mbape for this season, at least you're going to have Mbappe, Neymar and Messi up front. Jesus Christ. And then you have Ecardi and DiMaria waiting in line, meaning it's just scary. But to be honest, the defense is still weak. Let's not get too ahead of ourselves. Their defense is pretty weak. Ramos still doesn't have a timeline as to when he can play for PSEG because of his knee ligament injury. He not had a preseason game, nothing. So with Marquis playing more as a midfielder in the last couple of seasons, he has to revert back to defense. How can you adapt? It will be challenging. Kim Pembay there. I still I'm not very confident about Kimpembee's abilities as a central defender. But yeah, if you can score ten goals, who cares? If you concede to see when I was selling Ishan that we will dedicate this particular section on how India's performance against England in the fourth test at Oval. We are not doing an audio podcast. I mean if we do video, you can see Shan's expression. It's just like, oh shit, God, the same expression he showed like last episode when we're talking about India's bathing. I mean guys, it's the same old situation. India all out for 191 thanks to a 50 from Sharpul Takur. Not without Koli, Sharpul Taku and Sharbul. Takur has probably made a case of even if India get trashed as to why Ashwin was not picked in a spin friendly pitch, I still do not understand our selection process. I would have taken Ashwin as a wicket keeper over Punt just to get Ashwin in the squad. But let's talk and I think Bala will leave this to you because it just annoys me. Just describe what is going on with India's battle. They are just falling into the trap of let's be bold, let's be bold, let's be bold. I mean there's a thin line separates boldness and stupidity. I think they seem to cross that line time and again time and again. Look at the way how punt got out. I mean that is stupidity. That's not just stepping over the line. That's like way ahead of the line. You are like pretty much in the middle of the stupidity zone. So that's what's happening. They are not applying themselves properly. Again, Ajunkira disappointing game again went out. I would say get Ashwinitrajing at least some ten tons and pick up some three wickets instead of just standing like. Yeah, and just look at the Math Koli scored a 50 shadow score of 50. That's 100 plus runs coming from two players and then we got all out for 191. Now. Are you kidding me? Yeah. So that's just shocking, right? Yeah. This is really irresponsible. I mean we started off well with the bowling. I mean as of now, at the end of 50 Nova, England are 52 for two in reply. I mean there were actually six for two and there's a bit of a counter attack from David Malan and Joe Root. So they are playing really well. So the signs are pretty clear. It looks like you get another big first innings lead unless some inspiring bowling performance either from Umayshado or Taku or Bumrah. And that's also we don't have Shami, one of our biggest bowling mainstream. Shami is gone so I'm not sure how we are going to get a first innings lead with this bowling attack. Plus you have Root who's almost going to guarantee scoring a century. Yeah, I don't see anything other than disappointment in this game also. But let's hope if we can do something and save face. So last episode we were talking about how India performing really well in Paralympics. We have won ten medals so far and we are up for a few more. Actually, we have great hope in backminton. In fact, world number one Pramod Bhagat. He's actually won his group and he's qualified for the semi. So that's pretty much not a short medal, but at least there is a good chance of winning a medal. And other batmetal players, Suhasia and Tharoon Delan all have made really good progress. And then in canoeing we have Pratti Yada who has entered semi final. So we should at least expect another two to three medals from us. And this is going really great. So guys, we still have another three more days for this event to finish. So let's hope that we bring in more meters and as usual, let's cheer for them. For guys who want to watch this, it's on either Daily Sports or if you get Euro Sport, it's on Euro Sports also.
