3 Things I learned about Seed Investing in 2015
Inspired by:
http://blog.elizabethyin.com/
1) Product-market fit trumps all
As an entrepreneur and now as an investor, I’ve met a ton of highly accomplished, smart founders with strong domain expertise. But, I’ve also seen many of these people fail to grow their business because they just can’t find product-market fit.
A smart founder can increase his/her chances of success by being self-reflective and smartly trying to pivot around to improve the unit economics of a business or find a peripheral product that has more market demand.

But, at the end of the day, hitting upon a product that lots of people use at the right price point is out of a founders’ control. It’s called luck


If you ask investors to pick the #1 criteria they look for in a company, many would say “team” or “market”. (And obviously, there’s many criteria that investors look at – not just one.) But, having seen so many companies with both great teams and awesome markets fail, my #1 criteria would be product-market fit.
There are a lot of great founders out there in the world and a lot of big markets, but there are not a lot of products that have product-market fit. I don’t want to bet on luck.



2) Speed is the best indicator of an awesome team
When investors say they are looking for “awesome teams,” I never understood what they meant. How do you know whether a team is awesome? (especially if you don’t have history with that team)

Referrals can be an ok vetting source, but having looked at a lot of companies this year from referrals, I’ve found that referrers have very different definitions of who are “awesome teams.” And, it can be hard to discern how strong the referral is.

I invest in accelerator companies to learn more about teams. What I’ve learned via the 500 Startups accelerator this year has above and beyond dominated my learnings from doing straight up angel or seed investments. When you do a seed deal, you put money in, and maybe you get reports every once in a while, but you never really know what exactly is happening at the company.

But, when teams come to our space in Mountain View, I get to learn in detail about how they think about their business, how they work together, and how they mobilize. I get to see everything – from the wins to the founder drama to seeing founders go through aha or learning-moments.


via GIPHY

So who are the best teams? It turns out the best teams are not the oldest, not the youngest, not the most experienced, not the best-credentialed, not the smartest, etc.
The best teams are the ones who move quickly - they are fast in all respects. They execute on short time frames – time to push product, time to learn, time to hire / fire, time to resolve founder-drama / morale-issues, etc.
They don’t let issues build up - they nip them in the bud. They tackle challenges head on and immediately. They are not afraid to ask questions to clarify what they don’t know and are very quick to learn and get help. How fast a team moves is the best indicator of the greatness of a team, and being quick also helps to extend a team’s runway and try lots of experiments to increase chances of getting to product-market fit.


3) Unit economics > Growth numbers

Although a lot of investors are all about growth growth growth, I’ve seen a ton of high growth companies with poor unit economics get stuck in the later stages of fundraising.

Surprise surprise! - profitability does matter at some point. If a company is losing more money by selling products than not, this is a very bad sign even if your growth is phenomenal.


To an outsider not in venture-backed startups, this may sound like a ludicrous-learning. Afterall, shouldn’t investors be looking at whether businesses are viable? But, this isn’t altogether obvious in the Silicon Valley. There’s a pervasive mentality that you should grow quickly so that you can be a winner who takes the whole market.

This is fodder for a much longer blog post. But, I think this “growth-at-the-expense-of-unit-economics” really is only beneficial to perhaps 5% of venture backed companies. I.e. If you are a business who needs everyone tp be on your product in order for it to be valuable, then growing at the expense of unit economics makes sense. Think Uber. Think Facebook. But if you’re say a SaaS business or an ecommerce company, your 100th customer’s experience is really not any better because you overpaid for the first 99.

Unit economics for the win.

Who would win between 90s Australian team and 70s West Indies team?


Are you talking about 1999s Australia team?

Then I have to say that they are not the strongest one.

70s West Indies team will win easily in that case.

Remember how they won the world cup in 1999

They were lucky against South Africa

What you should be asking - about 2003 and 2007s Australian teams

Remember in 2007 they won the world cup with ridiculous ease.

And in 2003 also they showed total dominace

It would be interesting to compare 1975 and 1979s West Indies team with these two Australian teams.

First will be ODIs and then test matches

T20Is will be out of equations since they don't exist in their time.

Let's see the squad of West Indies team that played in that era-

1975s West Indies team-

Clive Lloyd(c)

Roy Fredericks

Gordon Greenidge

Lance Gibbs

Alvin Kallicharran

Rohan Kanhai

Deryck Murray(wk)

Viv Richards

Andy Roberts

Keith Boyce

Vanburn Holder

1979s West Indies team-

Clive Lloyd(c)

Joel Garner

Gordon Greenidge

Alvin Kallicharran

Desmond Haynes

Michael Holding

Viv Richards

Andy Roberts

Larry Gomes

Malcolm Marshall

Deryck Murray(wk)

And this is 2003s Australian team-

Ricky Ponting(c)

Michael Bevan

Andy Bichel

Nathan Bracken

Adam Gilchrist(wk)

Jason Gillespie

Ian Harvey

Nathan Hauritz

Matthew Hayden

Brad Hogg

Brett Lee

Darren Lehmann

Jimmy Maher

Damien Martyn

Glenn McGrath

Andrew Symonds

Shane Warne

And this is 2007s Australian team-

Ricky Ponting(c)

Nathan Bracken

Stuart Clark

Michael Clarke

Adam Gilchrist

Brad Haddin

Matthew Hayden

Brad Hodge

Brad Hogg

Michael Hussey

Mitchell Johnson

Glenn McGrath

Andrew Symonds

Shaun Tait

Shane Watson

So as you can see these two Australian teams have far too much fire power in their line up be it bowling, batting or fielding

And remember there was no T20Is then only ODIs and test and these two Australian teams took ODIs to its pinnacle

On the other hand, in those two West Indies teams case, ODIs was just starting to make it's mark in international cricket

So of course, Australian teams are stronger in ODIs

But in test matches that's a different case

I believe in head to head battle

West Indies team might be slightly behind than Australian team because of Shane Warne the greatest leg Spinner world has ever seen or even greatest spinner as well

Well, due respect to the 1970 but there wasn't many outstanding spinners available then

Our three spinners were very very good but not outstanding like Shane Warne

Australia will eventually dominate West Indies team after having a neck and neck contest in other departments

So in the end Australian teams will be victorious

"Why do people believe in the African American community that being educated is talking "white"? This question was asked to me on Quora which is a social media app for asking questions and getting answers Read the answer below"

Why do people believe in the African American community that being educated is talking "white"?

This question was asked to me on Quora which is a social media app for asking questions and getting answers

Read the answer below

Because they are fucking idiot.

Yep, I will not hold back just because they are black. This is a white insecurity to say anything against black even when they are completely utterly wrong but it has nothing to do with being brown guy.

Let me tell you a story. My maternal cousin is a doctor (orthopaedic) living in Canada and USA. I went to his home. We were traveling through out North America. He has many black friends. The problem with my cousin is that he is just too nice. He therefore always try to assimilate with everyone and behave exactly the way people are comfortable with. And while that is a great quality to have, it can also create many problems.

He has darker brown skin compared to my whitish brown skin tone. So I believe black African American people consider him as their own and while that is completely acceptable and wonderful. The problem starts when they started to talk rubbish.

My cousin is second generation immigrants. His father was also a doctor. Basically a brilliant family. His mother was a professor in economics.

He is obviously a very brilliant student. But unfortunately he is one of those nerdy people who has been bulied through out his childhood. I can imagine him living in a foreign country which doesn't exactly look like him mostly. But he was born in Canada so he had to find friends in early part of his life. But who would give any importance to nerdy kid who looks like from foreign country. He obviously had a difficult childhood. So he has this desperation unfortunately to be liked by other people. He is just too nice.

I must say that he has most stupid bunch of black African American friends that I have ever seen. I have no idea how a doctor in his stature could be such clueless in social atmosphere. It's not like black African American cannot be smart. I have seen many black African American doctors. But for some reason I have seen him with his idiotic black African friends.

I don't know it must be something to do with his difficult childhood.

They always make fun of him being smart or him being doctor or trying to be white. Most of time, he doesn't say anything and smile stupidly. At first I thought it was just joke between friends but then I realised that it was nothing but African American stupidity. I was getting angry.

I couldn't hold myself off anymore so I said to them, “What do you mean by acting white?”

Well, they didn't expect that, so they said, “Oh! You are a foreigner so you won't get it”

I said, “I am sorry if I don't understand completely. But I think this acting white is a stupid and racist comment”

They were very surprised and said, “How can we be racist when we are not white people?”

I said, “Being racist has nothing to do with whether one is white or not. Do white people have monopoly over being educated?”

They started to get angry and said, “Well, you don't live in US, you don't know what kind of struggle we have to go through and we are still doing it everyday”

I said, “I completely understand that but if your idea is to rise above poverty and systemic racism then first thing you can't do is to demonise education and calling it acting white”

They got even more angry and said, “Now you are being entitled racist ”

I said, “No, I am not, infact you are bullying my cousin here as he is too nice. You are being racist here. And if you are calling him being educated is acting white then you are already putting white people in pedestal and terming yourself as the same thing that racist white people say about you that you are bunch of uneducated stupid tribal people who were lucky to be taken up here in US as slaves which is why you even get the opportunity to understand what civility is unlike your bothers in Africa who are busy fighting with each other and living in a shit hole”

They obviously got real angry with me but I didn't budge and stood up for cousin and took him out of there before things get out of hand in physical level.

Even though I got emotional there but I believe they needed to hear that because they live in a stupid bubble which needs to be brust. By the way, I am not saying every black African Americans are like this. Infact opposite. But still there are significant amount of African people in America who are stupid like this.

I later introduced my socially awkward brilliant cousin to a club for introvert people in US from internet. There are many African Americans in that club as well.

He doesn't get many people to interact anyway as he is super busy being a doctor.

But I believe he needed that.

How Cricket can be even cooler sports than what it is now? What are the some of innovative ideas?

Look one can have plenty of cool ideas about Cricket, will ICC listen? Will every board members agree to that? The major power player is BCCI, now in country like ours where we don't like change, even ideas like T10Is for only Olympic games also get sidetracked. People of India are also not really comfortable with any change. One needs to push it to them, remember first T20I WC in SA, well before that tournament, BCCI wasn't ready to play by saying T20I was a joke, Indian people also kind of went with that as they follow most often our former cricketer say, fortunately BCCI voted out in the meeting, and rest is history. Now look at Indian public's craze with T20Is. Because Indian people most often don't know what they want. Ask most Indian about T10Is only for Olympic as even 3 hr of T20Is are long for Olympic, they will say they hate the ideas. They said same thing about T20Is as well. Actually the problems with Cricket are tradition and nostalgia and it's clash with this modern world. At certain points of time ICC and BCCI need to choose between keeping the old fans satisfied or creating completely new age fan base who weren't interested in cricket before by creating new version of Cricket which more interesting and eye catching than before for even those who doesn't have any ideas about Cricket before.

I mean look at old test cricket loving crowds in Australia and England. What will happen after 10 years from now, when most of them will be dead?

No one knows answer to this question.

First of all, if you look at world sports, glamour sells and it sells well in sports.

I mean anyone can see woman's tennis obvious popularity now, and it's sheer level of competitiveness, but is it always like this?

A big no

Glamour started to bring attention and money in the sports and then gradually women's tennis competitiveness hit the roof.

Some things similar could be done for women's Cricket. Conservative ideas won't help anyone here.

There should be a group in ICC whose prime job is to research on Cricket and build some new ideas to make it more interesting and innovative and exciting for the new crowds, they should research on Cricket to bring new kind of thinking to change the game forever, they should research why particular group of people in particular part of the world like particular game, what is the thinking behind that kind of mentality, how they could be interested in cricket, what general Cricket fans are thinking about the game, what they want, how they want game to change, maybe they should learn from other sports- what is working for other sports, bring that into Cricket etc etc etc etc etc etc

For test cricket:

Cricket specially test cricket is based on certain factors like patience etc where percentage of that happening from people are very low. Let's add to that 5 day long test cricket in today's day and age . And you get ignorance and ridiculing from people and even from those test playing nations. Test cricket lover always say that test cricket is like those traditional setar music whereas T20Is are more like hip hop.

But is it really???

Or is it more complex than that?

See people are very participatory nature in their core even though the whole concept of test cricket will drive away most people these days and that should be expected not to be surprised about but people end of days like to see their team is playing and participating and competing and competing hard even if the level of cricket is not exactly up to mark to the purist test cricket lovers.

What exactly my point here?

It's very simple.

Former cricketer always talk about balance between bat and ball , yet they never do anything about it pushing convention wisdom AKA with innovative thought process.

What is exactly going on now in limited over's cricket?

There's some invisible structure where 40% of matches are played on extremely flat surface and rest of 60% matches played on three types pitches - slow(20%), turning(20%), seaming(20%).

But in test cricket it is extremely opposite such as bowling favoured pitch since the perception is that limited over's cricket is only played on flat surface therefore test cricket should be played on bowling favoured pitch otherwise bowlers will disappear.

But it just different tone from the past era when test cricket was played on flat surface otherwise it is very same. It just two sides of a same coin.

While it is very hard to make test cricket viewers friendly in today's day and age. But one can try and do by pushing the conventional wisdom.

How is that possible?

Well first of all stop trying to pretend that test cricket is a simple game.

It is not. It is the most complex game in the world.

So rather than trying to be something that test cricket is not , I say test cricket should hold on to it's best attributes that it is a complex game therefore innovate rules from that point of view to make this game more multi dimensional and contest worthy in every single matches.

It should not matter which team is playing against which team.

Since pitch is such a big deal in test cricket , let's make rules based on according to every kind of pitch that a cricket game can offer.

This should be the job for match referee since most of the time they are not super busy in Cricket game. They should handle this complex responsibility of cricket rules with accordance to cricket pitch to bring out it's multi dimensional nature.

Situation no 1>

If the pitch is absolutely flat and nothing is happening allow the bowlers to push the envelope of conventional wisdom of cricket rules. Allow ball tampering to an certain extent to reverse swing the ball both ways and allow Spinners to bowl with illegal action to bring different varieties like dusra etc to cause problems for the batsman in a bowlers graveyard. There are lots of theory and calculation out there today which wasn't earlier to predict the pitch better than ever before so this should not be that hard for match referees.

Situation no 2>

If pitch is too slow and nothing is happening. Allow the bowlers to do exactly like in situation 1 but also make sure the boundary limit is ridiculously small(extremely small) to give a ‘kick start' advantage to test batsman to play more attacking cricket since most of them are devoid of great stroke making ability to suit the test cricket.

Situation no 3>

If pitch is seaming like in England or South Africa or in New Zealand, allow the boundary limit just like in situation 2 to favour the batsman to play more attacking cricket.

Situation no 4>

If pitch is turning like in Indian subcontinent, allow the boundary limit just like in situation 2&3 to favour the batsman to play more attacking cricket.

This will almost make sure that the percentage of draw become almost non existent.

This is a creative idea which you have the option to disagree with but remember something is always better than nothing and this will also make sure small teams to come into the game big way in test cricket and everyone, I mean everyone will have their opportunity to eat the pie and that of course include big teams.

But is it going to make test cricket very popular?

I don't think so.

Is it going to make better test cricket for everyone , I mean not just the big teams but even for the small teams- I believe so.

What do you think?

For ODIs :

What exactly do we want from ODIs, we want to see two teams are contesting hard inspite of their unequal power of strength as it should not matter which team is playing against which team. I have a solution for this, but a warning it will sound complicated so read carefully, truth is if you want to make Cricket matches one sided contest free then we don't have much options but the complicated ways as Cricket is designed to be one sided.

In ODIs a bowler's limitation is 10 overs, but there are circumstances when bowler is bowling superbly but in rest of the bowling line up, few are okay and few are having a off day. To counter this situation, one option is that best bowler from that day can bowl upto 20 overs or in another option two of the best from the rest can bowl 15 overs each and rest can bowl either remaining 30 overs or 20 overs with 10 overs limit respectively or as another option go back to traditional five bowlers 10 over max rule. The bowling captain needs to decide and let umpire know after the chosen bowler or bowlers finished their first 6 overs. When one team goes to bat they should have the option of having two batsman from the reserve bench replacing any two bowlers from playing XI, when they go to bowl everything will be the way it was before. In a similar bowling team will also have the option to choose two bowlers from reserve bench replacing two batsman and when the bowling team will go to bat things will be the way they were before. Four bouncers in a over should be another nice option. When a team is all out they should have the option of playing their XI again but with each batsman coming to bat, there will be 60 runs penalty cut off from the total and this will be considered 2nd innings of that particular batsman in that match (Only for the batting team as this will farther complicate it for the bowling stats, so bowlers don't need any second innings)[Remember this second innings options can be used any situation not just when team is all out, for example suppose Virat Kohli has got out early with this rule he can bat again anytime but with 60 runs extra to the total as it has been cut off from the total as penalty for using the second innings options, yeah now it sounds very interesting], stats and average will be working according to that. This new rule will make sure both team & comparatively weaker team stay in the match and it will be multiplying their strength there by reducing the percentage of one sided contest. Because ODIs go on for long time therefore one sided contest is killing it. I believe this is the best cure at the moment.

See the idea is very simple, let's have one team whose strength is 100 and another team whose strength is 10 and you will know that who is going to win even before the match and with above mentioned ideas both team's strength will be multiplied at least hundred times which means even though the stronger team will win most occasions but game will be very close contested therefore one dimensional nature free. This is what people are looking for from ODIs and Cricket.

So How do you like this idea which you have the option to disagree with but remember something is better than nothing and it just a creative thought end of the days. You can add if you have something.

3 Things I learned about Seed Investing in 2015
Inspired by:
http://blog.elizabethyin.com/
1) Product-market fit trumps all
As an entrepreneur and now as an investor, I’ve met a ton of highly accomplished, smart founders with strong domain expertise. But, I’ve also seen many of these people fail to grow their business because they just can’t find product-market fit.
A smart founder can increase his/her chances of success by being self-reflective and smartly trying to pivot around to improve the unit economics of a business or find a peripheral product that has more market demand.

But, at the end of the day, hitting upon a product that lots of people use at the right price point is out of a founders’ control. It’s called luck


If you ask investors to pick the #1 criteria they look for in a company, many would say “team” or “market”. (And obviously, there’s many criteria that investors look at – not just one.) But, having seen so many companies with both great teams and awesome markets fail, my #1 criteria would be product-market fit.
There are a lot of great founders out there in the world and a lot of big markets, but there are not a lot of products that have product-market fit. I don’t want to bet on luck.



2) Speed is the best indicator of an awesome team
When investors say they are looking for “awesome teams,” I never understood what they meant. How do you know whether a team is awesome? (especially if you don’t have history with that team)

Referrals can be an ok vetting source, but having looked at a lot of companies this year from referrals, I’ve found that referrers have very different definitions of who are “awesome teams.” And, it can be hard to discern how strong the referral is.

I invest in accelerator companies to learn more about teams. What I’ve learned via the 500 Startups accelerator this year has above and beyond dominated my learnings from doing straight up angel or seed investments. When you do a seed deal, you put money in, and maybe you get reports every once in a while, but you never really know what exactly is happening at the company.

But, when teams come to our space in Mountain View, I get to learn in detail about how they think about their business, how they work together, and how they mobilize. I get to see everything – from the wins to the founder drama to seeing founders go through aha or learning-moments.


via GIPHY

So who are the best teams? It turns out the best teams are not the oldest, not the youngest, not the most experienced, not the best-credentialed, not the smartest, etc.
The best teams are the ones who move quickly - they are fast in all respects. They execute on short time frames – time to push product, time to learn, time to hire / fire, time to resolve founder-drama / morale-issues, etc.
They don’t let issues build up - they nip them in the bud. They tackle challenges head on and immediately. They are not afraid to ask questions to clarify what they don’t know and are very quick to learn and get help. How fast a team moves is the best indicator of the greatness of a team, and being quick also helps to extend a team’s runway and try lots of experiments to increase chances of getting to product-market fit.


3) Unit economics > Growth numbers

Although a lot of investors are all about growth growth growth, I’ve seen a ton of high growth companies with poor unit economics get stuck in the later stages of fundraising.

Surprise surprise! - profitability does matter at some point. If a company is losing more money by selling products than not, this is a very bad sign even if your growth is phenomenal.


To an outsider not in venture-backed startups, this may sound like a ludicrous-learning. Afterall, shouldn’t investors be looking at whether businesses are viable? But, this isn’t altogether obvious in the Silicon Valley. There’s a pervasive mentality that you should grow quickly so that you can be a winner who takes the whole market.

This is fodder for a much longer blog post. But, I think this “growth-at-the-expense-of-unit-economics” really is only beneficial to perhaps 5% of venture backed companies. I.e. If you are a business who needs everyone tp be on your product in order for it to be valuable, then growing at the expense of unit economics makes sense. Think Uber. Think Facebook. But if you’re say a SaaS business or an ecommerce company, your 100th customer’s experience is really not any better because you overpaid for the first 99.

Unit economics for the win.

Who would win between 90s Australian team and 70s West Indies team?


Are you talking about 1999s Australia team?

Then I have to say that they are not the strongest one.

70s West Indies team will win easily in that case.

Remember how they won the world cup in 1999

They were lucky against South Africa

What you should be asking - about 2003 and 2007s Australian teams

Remember in 2007 they won the world cup with ridiculous ease.

And in 2003 also they showed total dominace

It would be interesting to compare 1975 and 1979s West Indies team with these two Australian teams.

First will be ODIs and then test matches

T20Is will be out of equations since they don't exist in their time.

Let's see the squad of West Indies team that played in that era-

1975s West Indies team-

Clive Lloyd(c)

Roy Fredericks

Gordon Greenidge

Lance Gibbs

Alvin Kallicharran

Rohan Kanhai

Deryck Murray(wk)

Viv Richards

Andy Roberts

Keith Boyce

Vanburn Holder

1979s West Indies team-

Clive Lloyd(c)

Joel Garner

Gordon Greenidge

Alvin Kallicharran

Desmond Haynes

Michael Holding

Viv Richards

Andy Roberts

Larry Gomes

Malcolm Marshall

Deryck Murray(wk)

And this is 2003s Australian team-

Ricky Ponting(c)

Michael Bevan

Andy Bichel

Nathan Bracken

Adam Gilchrist(wk)

Jason Gillespie

Ian Harvey

Nathan Hauritz

Matthew Hayden

Brad Hogg

Brett Lee

Darren Lehmann

Jimmy Maher

Damien Martyn

Glenn McGrath

Andrew Symonds

Shane Warne

And this is 2007s Australian team-

Ricky Ponting(c)

Nathan Bracken

Stuart Clark

Michael Clarke

Adam Gilchrist

Brad Haddin

Matthew Hayden

Brad Hodge

Brad Hogg

Michael Hussey

Mitchell Johnson

Glenn McGrath

Andrew Symonds

Shaun Tait

Shane Watson

So as you can see these two Australian teams have far too much fire power in their line up be it bowling, batting or fielding

And remember there was no T20Is then only ODIs and test and these two Australian teams took ODIs to its pinnacle

On the other hand, in those two West Indies teams case, ODIs was just starting to make it's mark in international cricket

So of course, Australian teams are stronger in ODIs

But in test matches that's a different case

I believe in head to head battle

West Indies team might be slightly behind than Australian team because of Shane Warne the greatest leg Spinner world has ever seen or even greatest spinner as well

Well, due respect to the 1970 but there wasn't many outstanding spinners available then

Our three spinners were very very good but not outstanding like Shane Warne

Australia will eventually dominate West Indies team after having a neck and neck contest in other departments

So in the end Australian teams will be victorious

"Why do people believe in the African American community that being educated is talking "white"? This question was asked to me on Quora which is a social media app for asking questions and getting answers Read the answer below"

Why do people believe in the African American community that being educated is talking "white"?

This question was asked to me on Quora which is a social media app for asking questions and getting answers

Read the answer below

Because they are fucking idiot.

Yep, I will not hold back just because they are black. This is a white insecurity to say anything against black even when they are completely utterly wrong but it has nothing to do with being brown guy.

Let me tell you a story. My maternal cousin is a doctor (orthopaedic) living in Canada and USA. I went to his home. We were traveling through out North America. He has many black friends. The problem with my cousin is that he is just too nice. He therefore always try to assimilate with everyone and behave exactly the way people are comfortable with. And while that is a great quality to have, it can also create many problems.

He has darker brown skin compared to my whitish brown skin tone. So I believe black African American people consider him as their own and while that is completely acceptable and wonderful. The problem starts when they started to talk rubbish.

My cousin is second generation immigrants. His father was also a doctor. Basically a brilliant family. His mother was a professor in economics.

He is obviously a very brilliant student. But unfortunately he is one of those nerdy people who has been bulied through out his childhood. I can imagine him living in a foreign country which doesn't exactly look like him mostly. But he was born in Canada so he had to find friends in early part of his life. But who would give any importance to nerdy kid who looks like from foreign country. He obviously had a difficult childhood. So he has this desperation unfortunately to be liked by other people. He is just too nice.

I must say that he has most stupid bunch of black African American friends that I have ever seen. I have no idea how a doctor in his stature could be such clueless in social atmosphere. It's not like black African American cannot be smart. I have seen many black African American doctors. But for some reason I have seen him with his idiotic black African friends.

I don't know it must be something to do with his difficult childhood.

They always make fun of him being smart or him being doctor or trying to be white. Most of time, he doesn't say anything and smile stupidly. At first I thought it was just joke between friends but then I realised that it was nothing but African American stupidity. I was getting angry.

I couldn't hold myself off anymore so I said to them, “What do you mean by acting white?”

Well, they didn't expect that, so they said, “Oh! You are a foreigner so you won't get it”

I said, “I am sorry if I don't understand completely. But I think this acting white is a stupid and racist comment”

They were very surprised and said, “How can we be racist when we are not white people?”

I said, “Being racist has nothing to do with whether one is white or not. Do white people have monopoly over being educated?”

They started to get angry and said, “Well, you don't live in US, you don't know what kind of struggle we have to go through and we are still doing it everyday”

I said, “I completely understand that but if your idea is to rise above poverty and systemic racism then first thing you can't do is to demonise education and calling it acting white”

They got even more angry and said, “Now you are being entitled racist ”

I said, “No, I am not, infact you are bullying my cousin here as he is too nice. You are being racist here. And if you are calling him being educated is acting white then you are already putting white people in pedestal and terming yourself as the same thing that racist white people say about you that you are bunch of uneducated stupid tribal people who were lucky to be taken up here in US as slaves which is why you even get the opportunity to understand what civility is unlike your bothers in Africa who are busy fighting with each other and living in a shit hole”

They obviously got real angry with me but I didn't budge and stood up for cousin and took him out of there before things get out of hand in physical level.

Even though I got emotional there but I believe they needed to hear that because they live in a stupid bubble which needs to be brust. By the way, I am not saying every black African Americans are like this. Infact opposite. But still there are significant amount of African people in America who are stupid like this.

I later introduced my socially awkward brilliant cousin to a club for introvert people in US from internet. There are many African Americans in that club as well.

He doesn't get many people to interact anyway as he is super busy being a doctor.

But I believe he needed that.

How Cricket can be even cooler sports than what it is now? What are the some of innovative ideas?

Look one can have plenty of cool ideas about Cricket, will ICC listen? Will every board members agree to that? The major power player is BCCI, now in country like ours where we don't like change, even ideas like T10Is for only Olympic games also get sidetracked. People of India are also not really comfortable with any change. One needs to push it to them, remember first T20I WC in SA, well before that tournament, BCCI wasn't ready to play by saying T20I was a joke, Indian people also kind of went with that as they follow most often our former cricketer say, fortunately BCCI voted out in the meeting, and rest is history. Now look at Indian public's craze with T20Is. Because Indian people most often don't know what they want. Ask most Indian about T10Is only for Olympic as even 3 hr of T20Is are long for Olympic, they will say they hate the ideas. They said same thing about T20Is as well. Actually the problems with Cricket are tradition and nostalgia and it's clash with this modern world. At certain points of time ICC and BCCI need to choose between keeping the old fans satisfied or creating completely new age fan base who weren't interested in cricket before by creating new version of Cricket which more interesting and eye catching than before for even those who doesn't have any ideas about Cricket before.

I mean look at old test cricket loving crowds in Australia and England. What will happen after 10 years from now, when most of them will be dead?

No one knows answer to this question.

First of all, if you look at world sports, glamour sells and it sells well in sports.

I mean anyone can see woman's tennis obvious popularity now, and it's sheer level of competitiveness, but is it always like this?

A big no

Glamour started to bring attention and money in the sports and then gradually women's tennis competitiveness hit the roof.

Some things similar could be done for women's Cricket. Conservative ideas won't help anyone here.

There should be a group in ICC whose prime job is to research on Cricket and build some new ideas to make it more interesting and innovative and exciting for the new crowds, they should research on Cricket to bring new kind of thinking to change the game forever, they should research why particular group of people in particular part of the world like particular game, what is the thinking behind that kind of mentality, how they could be interested in cricket, what general Cricket fans are thinking about the game, what they want, how they want game to change, maybe they should learn from other sports- what is working for other sports, bring that into Cricket etc etc etc etc etc etc

For test cricket:

Cricket specially test cricket is based on certain factors like patience etc where percentage of that happening from people are very low. Let's add to that 5 day long test cricket in today's day and age . And you get ignorance and ridiculing from people and even from those test playing nations. Test cricket lover always say that test cricket is like those traditional setar music whereas T20Is are more like hip hop.

But is it really???

Or is it more complex than that?

See people are very participatory nature in their core even though the whole concept of test cricket will drive away most people these days and that should be expected not to be surprised about but people end of days like to see their team is playing and participating and competing and competing hard even if the level of cricket is not exactly up to mark to the purist test cricket lovers.

What exactly my point here?

It's very simple.

Former cricketer always talk about balance between bat and ball , yet they never do anything about it pushing convention wisdom AKA with innovative thought process.

What is exactly going on now in limited over's cricket?

There's some invisible structure where 40% of matches are played on extremely flat surface and rest of 60% matches played on three types pitches - slow(20%), turning(20%), seaming(20%).

But in test cricket it is extremely opposite such as bowling favoured pitch since the perception is that limited over's cricket is only played on flat surface therefore test cricket should be played on bowling favoured pitch otherwise bowlers will disappear.

But it just different tone from the past era when test cricket was played on flat surface otherwise it is very same. It just two sides of a same coin.

While it is very hard to make test cricket viewers friendly in today's day and age. But one can try and do by pushing the conventional wisdom.

How is that possible?

Well first of all stop trying to pretend that test cricket is a simple game.

It is not. It is the most complex game in the world.

So rather than trying to be something that test cricket is not , I say test cricket should hold on to it's best attributes that it is a complex game therefore innovate rules from that point of view to make this game more multi dimensional and contest worthy in every single matches.

It should not matter which team is playing against which team.

Since pitch is such a big deal in test cricket , let's make rules based on according to every kind of pitch that a cricket game can offer.

This should be the job for match referee since most of the time they are not super busy in Cricket game. They should handle this complex responsibility of cricket rules with accordance to cricket pitch to bring out it's multi dimensional nature.

Situation no 1>

If the pitch is absolutely flat and nothing is happening allow the bowlers to push the envelope of conventional wisdom of cricket rules. Allow ball tampering to an certain extent to reverse swing the ball both ways and allow Spinners to bowl with illegal action to bring different varieties like dusra etc to cause problems for the batsman in a bowlers graveyard. There are lots of theory and calculation out there today which wasn't earlier to predict the pitch better than ever before so this should not be that hard for match referees.

Situation no 2>

If pitch is too slow and nothing is happening. Allow the bowlers to do exactly like in situation 1 but also make sure the boundary limit is ridiculously small(extremely small) to give a ‘kick start' advantage to test batsman to play more attacking cricket since most of them are devoid of great stroke making ability to suit the test cricket.

Situation no 3>

If pitch is seaming like in England or South Africa or in New Zealand, allow the boundary limit just like in situation 2 to favour the batsman to play more attacking cricket.

Situation no 4>

If pitch is turning like in Indian subcontinent, allow the boundary limit just like in situation 2&3 to favour the batsman to play more attacking cricket.

This will almost make sure that the percentage of draw become almost non existent.

This is a creative idea which you have the option to disagree with but remember something is always better than nothing and this will also make sure small teams to come into the game big way in test cricket and everyone, I mean everyone will have their opportunity to eat the pie and that of course include big teams.

But is it going to make test cricket very popular?

I don't think so.

Is it going to make better test cricket for everyone , I mean not just the big teams but even for the small teams- I believe so.

What do you think?

For ODIs :

What exactly do we want from ODIs, we want to see two teams are contesting hard inspite of their unequal power of strength as it should not matter which team is playing against which team. I have a solution for this, but a warning it will sound complicated so read carefully, truth is if you want to make Cricket matches one sided contest free then we don't have much options but the complicated ways as Cricket is designed to be one sided.

In ODIs a bowler's limitation is 10 overs, but there are circumstances when bowler is bowling superbly but in rest of the bowling line up, few are okay and few are having a off day. To counter this situation, one option is that best bowler from that day can bowl upto 20 overs or in another option two of the best from the rest can bowl 15 overs each and rest can bowl either remaining 30 overs or 20 overs with 10 overs limit respectively or as another option go back to traditional five bowlers 10 over max rule. The bowling captain needs to decide and let umpire know after the chosen bowler or bowlers finished their first 6 overs. When one team goes to bat they should have the option of having two batsman from the reserve bench replacing any two bowlers from playing XI, when they go to bowl everything will be the way it was before. In a similar bowling team will also have the option to choose two bowlers from reserve bench replacing two batsman and when the bowling team will go to bat things will be the way they were before. Four bouncers in a over should be another nice option. When a team is all out they should have the option of playing their XI again but with each batsman coming to bat, there will be 60 runs penalty cut off from the total and this will be considered 2nd innings of that particular batsman in that match (Only for the batting team as this will farther complicate it for the bowling stats, so bowlers don't need any second innings)[Remember this second innings options can be used any situation not just when team is all out, for example suppose Virat Kohli has got out early with this rule he can bat again anytime but with 60 runs extra to the total as it has been cut off from the total as penalty for using the second innings options, yeah now it sounds very interesting], stats and average will be working according to that. This new rule will make sure both team & comparatively weaker team stay in the match and it will be multiplying their strength there by reducing the percentage of one sided contest. Because ODIs go on for long time therefore one sided contest is killing it. I believe this is the best cure at the moment.

See the idea is very simple, let's have one team whose strength is 100 and another team whose strength is 10 and you will know that who is going to win even before the match and with above mentioned ideas both team's strength will be multiplied at least hundred times which means even though the stronger team will win most occasions but game will be very close contested therefore one dimensional nature free. This is what people are looking for from ODIs and Cricket.

So How do you like this idea which you have the option to disagree with but remember something is better than nothing and it just a creative thought end of the days. You can add if you have something.
