    Death bowling in this IPL.

    In the IPL our trundlers are getting exposed badly in the end overs. Be it is knuckle brigade from hyderabad ( somehow Sandeep escaped) or Pace brigade from RCB (except Saini) or pie brigade from CSK/RR/MI (chahar ER 6.89 mostly because he bowls early). IS there one thinking bowler we have? Everyone is religiously following the footsteps of Dinda. Not like foreign bowlers are any good. They also bowl crap apart from few like Archer, Rabada. Even Prasidh goes at 9.15. Only guy that stands out in my view in the end overs is Saini. Goes less than 8 an over. Shami goes at 8.7 an over. He is capable. But bowls 4 good balls and two rubbish balls.

    Will Rohit turn the page in the WC?

    That is your poor understanding of my "theory" (there is no theory here as it is simply data) .... and ignores the difference b/w bilaterals and ICC events, see below: Irrelevant as the above misses everything that I explained. The players are judged based on the major teams in the baskets (not individual teams) as one of the challenges of ICC tourneys is to play different teams (unlike in bilaterals) which expected to be at full strength and also introduce new ideas. You are quoting Rohit's bilateral records Therefore, it is YOU who is bringing in individual teams per your misunderstanding. And the case is of Rohit is not doing well vs. this basket of major teams. Where Kohli averages 58, while Dhawan averages 77 vs. the basket As usual, you are barking at the wrong tree (and creating strawman w/o probably even realizing it). And as I have said, you should NOT be talking data/stats as the school that you studied in, I would be its principal Again, among those who played the same amount of games: View overall figures [change view] Primary team India Opposition team Australia or England or New Zealand or Pakistan or South Africa or Sri Lanka or West Indies Start of match date greater than or equal to 1 Jan 2013 Trophy Benson & Hedges World Championship of Cricket or ICC Champions Trophy (ICC KnockOut) or MRF World Series (Nehru Cup) or World Cup Qualifications runs scored greater than or equal to 200 Ordered by batting average (descending) Page 1 of 1 Showing 1 - 4 of 4 First Previous Next Last Return to query menu Cleared query menu Overall figures Player Span Mat Inns NO Runs HS Ave BF SR 100 50 0 4s 6s S Dhawan 2013-2017 13 13 1 919 137 76.58 933 98.49 4 4 0 102 11 V Kohli 2013-2017 13 13 4 525 107 58.33 602 87.20 1 3 1 46 6 MS Dhoni 2013-2017 13 8 1 240 65 34.28 243 98.76 0 2 1 20 6 RG Sharma 2013-2017 13 13 0 414 91 31.84 546 75.82 0 4 2 40 9

    Will Rohit turn the page in the WC?

    Your sample size is no more than 2 or 3 matches. Only against Pakistan he has played 4 matches. Had success in one match. He has played 15 matches against Pakistan. His average is 44 against them. But you use the 4 matches he played in the "special event". He has played 36 matches against Australia. But you use that 1 match sample from the world cup. His career average against Austarlia is 61.87 at a strike rate of 95. Against South africa he has played 3 matches in the ICC tournament. Did well in one match. Failed in 2 matches. That is the only team against which he has a poor ODI record besides HOnkong. He averages 28. Against New zealand he hasn't played even a single game. Against West Indies he has played 2 ICC tournaments. Did well in one match. His career record against West Indies is 64.15 in 26 matches. So why do you use a 1 match sample to prove your point. Let me explain in a different way how your theory holds no water. Kohli in ICC events vs Australia average 12.5 Failed 2 out of 2times KOhli in ICC evnets vs Pakistan 6 matches - 16, 9, 22*, 107, 81, 5 - That is only 2 out of 6 times success rate. Kohli in ICC events vs Engalnd 8 and 43 . 1 out of 2 times success. Kohli has never played vs NZ like Rohit Why do you think he will do well in the ICC tournament against these teams.

  13. I have never seen any other bowler persisted with match after match and season after season with so much authority,RR should be investigated only due to this. How d * they can continue with this crap unadkat when they have other bowlers in their team.

    Who was the most entertaining batsmen of all?

    I never really saw Viv batting as my start of "cricket watching career" coincided with his end of cricket career. So, based on the folks I saw play, I have no doubt in my mind that Virender Sehwag is the most entertaining batsman that I ever so. Never before had I seen a cricketer approach all formats of the game with the same simple approach towards batting that if there is a ball to be hit, it MUST BE HIT!! It doesn't matter whether it is the first ball of the innings, whether it is the last ball before lunch, last ball before end of play or what. His uncomplicated batting mindset always amazed me especially in Test cricket as an opening batsman (a position he was not even familiar to in domestic cricket). Sehwag takes the cake in pure exhilarating play that setup Test match wins for India by blowing away the opposition before they could even recover and see what is happening! Top player!!!

    Will Rohit turn the page in the WC?

    a) Rohit is already in the squad so the topic is - "Therefore, will Rohit turn the page vs major teams in this world cup or will he continue to fade away?" b) Against good batting side, one has to bat well too. So the batsmen should avg higher c) The basket consists of 7 teams. Therefore, for a key player, his overall record should be good even though he might not do well vs. x team for e.g. BD is a minnow. Rohit case is more like he did well against only one team but not vs. rest relatively. Performance is judged vs. this basket I have not removed BD because Rohit has done well against it. But because if you see any of my stats, you are not likely to find minnow teams like BD and Zim .... In short, the thread is about performance vs. the selected teams, which play in most WCs and are not considered as minnows. Every team has either won the tourney or entered the final including SA and NZ, which have won CT. In the future, I may reduce basket size further but for now, will stick with it Exactly, and Rohit has a relaively poor record against 7 teams in the basket
  16. Pair of alpacas...unadkat and dhawal. Cant win with bowlers like these.

    Will Rohit turn the page in the WC?

    You don't drop players based on 4 month form. Talking about current form in terms of Economy rate world's worst bowling attack right now England. For the year 2019 in 13 matches England is conceding 7.09 runs per over. I Presume they should suck balls in the world cup. IN the last 2 years as well England has the worst bowling attack. Why do you keep considering them as a "major nation" in terms of bowling. If anything it is harder to score against Afghanistan than England. In the last 2 years Australia is conceding 5.61 runs per over on an average. 4th worst behind ENgland/SL/Windies. Why do you think it is hard to score runs against them? Stop creating arbitrary "major teams" "minor teams" . You can't suck against any team.
  19. Have the following book, which I am yet to read: PS "Throughout the centuries, the wolf has been a figure of fascination and mystery, and a major motif in literature and myth. Inspiring fear and respect, the creature has long exerted a powerful influence on the human imagination. Of Wolves and Men takes the reader into the world of the Canis lupus and its relationship to humankind through the ages. Lopez draws on science, history, mythology, and his own field research to present a compelling portrait of wolves both real and imagined, dispelling our fear of them while celebrating their place in our history, legends, and hearts."
