    Get Washington Sundar into Indian LOI team already

    This in a nutshell is the problem plaguing Indian cricket. Picking batsmen for bowlers and vice versa. I don't buy this escapist argument. If the Kid is given the ball he should be able to take wickets or trouble the batsmen, at-least stem the run flow. At present the team is full of half baked name sake all rounders who are not able to do one job properly.

    Krunal Pandya’s knock today is a breath of fresh air

    1. In LOIs, 5 bowlers are needed because of over restrictions per bowler. So, 7 specialist batsmen cannot be played. So, how can Shaw replace Krunal ? 2. If a 5th specialist bowler is chosen then the No.7 batting slot is weakened. 3. Every teams wants a high SR batter at No.7 who can start hitting from ball one. This is because ... usually he has to come in at the fag end of the innings with only a few balls left. And has to play 30 off 22 balls type innings rather than 70 off 78 balls type innings. The requirement of the No.7 slot is different and a classical batsmen won't do. A high SR slogger is needed who can bowl atleast 8 overs in ODIs and 4 overs in T20s.

    Is time running out for KL Rahul fast?

    Sorry in test Rahul has AVG of 37.2 to be precise.
  11. My playing 11 for 1st test in Australia 1. Shaw 2. Rahul 3. Pujara 4. Kohli 5. Rahane / Rohit 6. Pant 7. Jadeja / Ashwin ( spinner-allrounder ) 8. Bhuvi ( pacer- allrounder ) 9. Ishant ( 3 specislist pacers ) 10. Shami 11. Bumrah -- Bhuvi can play only as pacer allrounder on the flat decks in Australia. But he can be the 5th bowler and add batting depth. -- I want to have 5 bowling options to let the pacers bowl with full intensity. -- This team has 6 proper batsmen and batting till 8.

    Is time running out for KL Rahul fast?

    People who are getting twist in their chaddhis, should first ensure what performance they are criticizing. If it's T20 than he is the best T20 batsmen from India no3 in icc ranking with a SR of 147. If it's test than his AVG is 36 and he needs to improve their now that he is getting regular chances. But if it's odi people should look themselves in the mirror before criticizing as he has played grand total is of 13 Odis since his debut and that too not in a stretch. When we have so many mediocre budhha are playing since eternity like Rayadu, Karthik, dhongi since years without performance s why everyone is after rahuls back who is not even getting chances in odi. Is it his mistake that he has been made backup opner? Bloddy hypocrites , stats Dekha Nahi as Gaye criticize karney.

    Is time running out for KL Rahul fast?

    102 condition for Rahul ( kyonki Rohit start performing constantly after 80 match) to ab Rahul bhi 80 match lega
  14. Absolutely ! At 140 k to 145 k or higher, even a little movement with reasonable accuracy is very difficult to handle, especially if the bowler gets some bounce. But at 130 k to 135 k or lower ... the skill level needed to succeed by the pacer is unusually high and very few people have it unless they have played 10+ years of international cricket with success. Pinpoint accuracy, consistent and significant movement or steep bounce and ability to read the situation very well are needed then. Pacers in the first 10 years of their careers, should strive to bowl 135 k to 145 k range atleast ... with sufficient accuracy and bounce. It is much easier to succeed in all conditions this way than swing bowling at 125 k to 135 k.

    Should this be legal?

    Even before switch hit, my understanding is onus has always been on bowler to declare arm and side before bowling never on batsman. Bowlers want to bring variety then bowl underarm.

    Why is Hinduism even classified as a Religion?

    Jay Lakhani explains the very basic constructs of Dharma.

    Is time running out for KL Rahul fast?

    Agree, time is running out for him. He'll need to get to the back of the line and let others get a chance. He's been provided with plenty and has failed to cement his place. Such a shame after the early promise.

    Australian seam bowlers will be quaking in their boots at the thought of facing Lord Rayudud.
  19. Any proper batsman. Even Shaw would be fine.
  20. This was an income shown as a gift. Not all get an exemption on cars etc. This was not right.

    Hinduphobic Bollywood

    Show me evidence there are sadhus preaching discrimination among castes.? There are laws against discrimination. Even SC wanted to relax some of anti-SC anti-discriminatory laws, there was no political part for it and parliament overturned the SC judgement. Media will go gung-ho about it as well.

    Hinduphobic Bollywood

    Really looking forward to your proof instead of an assertion that Manu smiriti dictates classification based on birth https://www.speakingtree.in/blog/manusmriti-and-cast-system 1. Manu Smriti hails from an era when even the concept of birth-based caste system did not exist. Thus Manu Smriti nowhere supports a social system based on birth. Maharshi Manu took inspiration from Vedas (refer Rigveda 10.10.11-12, Yajurveda 31.10-11, Atharvaveda 19.6.5-6) and proposed a social system based on qualities, actions and nature of the individual. 2. This is called Varna System. Now the very word Varna derived from root word “Vrinja” means “Choice“. A similar usage happens in common used word “Varan” meaning “choosing” or “Var” meaning a husband chosen by the girl. This also shows that in Vedic system the girl had complete rights to choose her husband. The biggest proof of Manu Smriti proposing Varna System and NOT Caste System is that in the first Chapter of Manu Smriti, there is mention of origin of 4 Varnas and no mention of castes or gotras. Had caste or gotra been important, Manu would have mentioned which castes belong to Brahmins, which to Kshatriyas, which to Vaishyas and which to Shudras. 4. In fact Manu Smriti 3.109 clearly states that one who eats by glorifying his Gotra or Family is considered an eater of his own vomit. Thus, as per the Manu Smriti that the self-proclaimed birth-based Brahmins or upper-castes believe in, the very act of glorifying their lineage or gotra to demand special privileges makes them deserving of condemnation. 5. Manu Smriti 2.136 states that one earns respect due to wealth, company, age, actions and knowledge in increasing order. There is no mention of family, gotra, caste, lineage and other non-factors to demand or earn respect. Migration within Varnas 6. Manu Smriti 10.65 asserts that Brahmin can become Shudra and Shudra can become Brahmin. Similarly Kshtariyas and Vaishyas can also change their Varnas. 7. Manu Smriti 9.335: If a Shudra (uneducated) serves the educated ones, is polite, devoid of ego and stays in respectful company of knowledgeable ones, he/ she is considered as having a noble birth and stature. 8. There are several shlokas in Manusmriti that state that a person belonging to high Varna falls down to level of a Shudra (uneducated) if he does not conduct noble deeds. For example, 2.104: A person who does not worship the Supreme Lord twice daily should be considered a Shudra. 2.172. He who has not been initiated with teaching of the Vedas is a Sudra. 4.245: A Brahmin acquires brilliance through company of noble persons and avoiding bad company. On contrary, if he indulges in bad company, he becomes a Shudra. Thus clearly, Brahmin refers to a scholarly person who conducts noble deeds. And Shudra refers to an uneducated person. This has nothing to do with birth in any manner.
  24. besides the team 2 bowling right. Dhawan against Umesh and Shradul..he might just wack the **** out of them.
