Mumbai Indians Fan Club - 2018

:laugh: Honest captain for Bambis? hahaha


Rohit Sharma is one of the biggest cheaters in Indian cricket history. Disgrace to Indian cricket

 

Blatant inside edge and he stands there like nothing happened, continually paying off the umpires and influencing them, playing test match cricket for India purely on bias and not on skills:hysterical:

Mumbai has a honest captain who is a stand up guy where as CSK has a guy with a lot of shady dealings.... cmon a guy who produces his own biopic :laugh: that is the epitome of integrity lol

Anyone who is the brother in law of Bunty Sajdeh cannot be "honest" :phehe: . He found his way onto the test side because his captain is managed by Bunty.

He gave up test aspirations and decided to take it slow and focus on LOI's despite the fact that he could have broken and created records unheard of in 200 years of cricket .Playing at home especially against Afghanistan can you imagine?

 

He decided to sacrifice his slot to a young aspiring cricketer. 

 

He is related to Bunty but not exactly direct brother-in law...Rithika is Bunty's distant cousin....so "related" can be thrown around loosely.

 

He is BFF with Kohli and every member in the squad young and old swear by his mesmerizing skills...still for the greater good he has made supreme sacrifices...he is not lingering or should I say lunging like a bad smell like some other over the hill players.

 

Rohit can be criticized for struggling against swing like millions of batsmen across the world  or even for not selfishly bowling his supremely gifted off spin due to shoulder pain to focus on his big hitting abilities  but he cannot be blamed for the lack of integrity.

 

Oh anyway you are CSK fan...you won't get it  and that's ok...NP

Season is coming to an end unless we win the next two and others complicate the scenario where 2-3 teams are left with 7 wins to decide the 4th spot based on NRR 

 

Rohit is too inconsistent and slow to bat at #3-4. Team for the final leg:

 

Surya

Lewis :yawn2:

Kishan

Krunal

Hardik

Rohit 

2 from: Cuttings / Duminy / Milne / Fizz :yawn2:

McG

Chahar / Markande

Bumrah

@MI fans What are the equations for Mumbai qualifying the playoffs?

  1. MI has to beat K11 and DD
  2. K11 should lose 2 of its 3 games. If not all 3 
  3. KKR should not win more than 1 of its remaining 2 games. One is against RR so it would cut in to the win of the other
  4. RR. Same as KKR 

 

One of KKR and RR is guaranteed to end up with at least 7 wins. MI has to win the last two. If 2 of the other 3 teams win 2 games each, a highly probable scenario, it is game over for MI. I hope this helps

Who are in MI team management ? What were they thinking of taking JP Duminy in last few games and did not give bat or ball ?? And also, you can't also rely on Cutting as a main bowler. They were lucky to win last few matches with this team combo and still they persisted with it.

Excellent death bowling by Bumrah today.

He is getting back to his best.

Pollard another positive. He needs to be used as a floater who gets sometime to settle down.

Still wasting 2 slots of overseas players in Ben and Lewis as even two uncapped players would have done better than these two.

If Polly starts bowling in middle overs then Ben can be dropped and Duminy can make up for Rohit's form.

Yes Duminy can come in for Ben. I still feel Adam Milne needs to play in place of Mclaghanan...

Markande will play all the matches. But I don’t see him picking any more wickets...

Even his body language is so negative. He doesn't attack anymore, but is more focused on saving runs. 

 

I think some time with Kumble should sort him out.

Bumrah!! From the scorecard, K11 could not get 20 of 10 

 

Game against Delhi could depend up on the toss as sides batting 2nd tend to have an advantage at Delhi. Would not make too many changes to the squad at this point. May be Chahar in for Markande. And Maine / Fizz in place of Lewis. I hope that Pollard would be consistent and has not played his 1 good innings of the tournament 

 

Surya

Kishan

Cuttings

Hardik

Krunal

Pollard

Rohit

McG

Maine / Fizz

Chahar

Bumrah

glory hunters ..

when things go wrong , they will vanish 

Who are they? I am here. :p:

pollard is match ka mujrim. Useless selection. Also sending Mayank ahead of Mustafizur was a wrong move. Mustafizur could atleast take singles. Mayank wasted them.

Too many errors, but the key ones:

 

a) Spinners only bowled 4 overs

b) Promoted Pollard ahead of Krunal when spinners were bowling

c) The Markande promotion. I saw this guy bat for the first time and was surprised to see he could not put bat to ball. Should have been #10 or 11

Anyways, for next year, the team needs to get its 11 right. Now, I will go with the following: 

 

India: 

Surya

Kishan

Rohit

Krunal

Hardik

Bumrah 

Nathu Singh / Chahar 

 

Overseas:

Cuttings (power hitter role)

Cummins / strike bowler 

Bowler

Batsman / AR 

 

Cummins would be playing next year. Get someone like Nathu Singh. Chahar can be given opportunities

Rohit has been the biggest disappointment this season. Had just 1 good innings... could have easily qualified if he would have had atleast an average IPL. Way too many close losses
