    EPIC rants on Pune Rising Super Giants

    From Reddit: This entire Pune Rising SuperGiants team is a marketing disaster. It is so morbidly abominable.For starters, the stupid stupid name. Rising Pune Super Giants. Did you randomly pull out words from a hat and just went with whatever you got? Its poopycockiness is accentuated by the fact that it is a piss poor attempt to match the initials of the group that owns the team. It has absolutely no identity. Next is the stupid logo. Even I could have made that. It is so cringe worthy and frankly juvenile. It has absolutely no identity. And it doesn't even have any characteristics even remotely related to the name. And if all of that wasn't enough, now we have got the jersey. An ugly, repulsive, hideous manifestation of all that is wrong with this team. A crime against the eyes. It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I think the beholder would have to be blind to consider this thing beautiful. And it just happens to have the same color scheme as the business attire of the group. This entire franchise is just a shoddy marketing stunt for the owners. They had the opportunity to create something beautiful, something new, something innovative. But no, they treated this as advertisement space. It is so sickeningly schizophrenic. Such a desultory waste. Rising Pune SuperGiants are awesome and I'll tell you why. Lets start with the name. RISING PUNE SUPERGIANTS. What a name it is. Apparently it was inspired by the initials of the owner, which has to be the most egotistical thing in Franchise Cricket history. Clearly the goal was to sound like the Chennai SuperKings, but instead of choosing royalty, they chose to be Giants. And they are Rising. Maybe from the dead. Like Zombies. And how can you not support a team of Zombie Giants? Zombie SuperGiants at that. Then there is the squad. Such a meme squad. You have the Rahane/Ashwin combo, MSD as captain, The People's Champ Steven Smith, Irfan Pathan making another comeback, swing sensation Chahar, meme Indian fast bowlers Ishant, Dinda, and RP, the triumphant return of the forgotten Ishwar Pandey, memefully awful Scott Boland, a Marsh brother, the misunderstood and dramatic T20 mercenary Kevin Pietersen, meme T20 utility man Rajat Bhatia, runs-out-people-with-his-nose Zampa, SL's meme big-hitting fast-bowling non-rounder Thissara Perera, and Faf duck Plessis. It's an incredible collection of stars and spuds. They even have M Ashwin - your meme undiscovered Indian T20 specialist plucked out of obscurity for a crazy amount of money. And on top of that, they have just signed Saurabh Tiwary and Albie Morkel - two quintessential T20 IPL 'stars', neither of whom have actually had any prolonged success, but continue to make people believe they are perfectly suited for the format. And to wrap it all off - check out their kit. Purple, pink, a splash of yellow, and a logo designed by a 15 year old who just discovered he can download Photoshop Pro on Bitorrent and decided he wants to be a graphic designer. The truest observation that I have found applying to Indians - Indians have no concept of aesthetics. Which is why they cannot design to save their lives and our modern buildings are an incoherent architectural mess. Our cars, trucks, movies and music videos - they all look gawdy, overdone and ugly. People buy iPhones in India, because it is the hip thing to have - not because of their design. In fact I cannot remember a single major Indian origin product that came out in my own lifetime with even a coherent design principle. I think that jugaad is slightly to blame for this, but at the core of it all it is a very ugly mirror to our inner baniyamentality, which judges everything by the kitna deti hai standard without any appreciation for beauty or details.

    With 20 wickets in the two knock-out games that Saurashtra have played in the 2015-16 Ranji Trophy season, Jaydev Unadkat's stocks have certainly risen. While Ravindra Jadeja did most of the damage in the league stage with spin-friendly conditions assisting him, the left-arm pacer has taken over in grand style, starring in Saurashtra's two back-to-back victories in the quarters and semis, picking up a hat-trick of five-wicket hauls in the process. The search for a quality left-arm seamer post the retirement of Zaheer Khan is still an ongoing one, but Unadkat, with his consistent performances this season, has put his hands up. "I'll be looking forward to doing that as soon as possible. The main thing I need to do for that is to make sure that I achieve the short-term goals that I have set for myself. If the process is right, the things are bound to happen, if not now then a bit later," says the pacer with confidence in a chat with Cricbuzz. Another issue that has plagued the Indian quicks in the past is that they have struggled to sustain their pace over longer periods, while some haven't been able to put in those extra yards required to give them the edge over others. Unadkat, who has found a lot of zip in the recent past, attributes it to two key factors. "It definitely has to do with my overall strength," says Unadkat when asked about the extra yards he has been managing of late. "I've put on some muscles in the last couple of years, that's for sure. That's probably the important thing that is helping me to gain those extra yards of pace. Only 24 and in the form of his life, things have been on an upswing for the Porbandar-born lad, who recently earned himself a Rs 1.6 Crore contract with Kolkata Knight Riders. With loads of cricket left in him, he'd prefer to build from strength to strength, and if it all goes through swimmingly, another intelligent left-armer may soon be part of the Indian set-up again, this time, with experience, self-belief and some muscles to aid him. http://www.cricbuzz.com/cricket-news/78028/nearing-his-best-jaydev-unadkat-saurashtra-cricket-team-bowler-sets-sights-on-bigger-things

    Bhuvi replaces injured Shami in Asia cup.

    Such a long lay off. Not sure how effective he's going to be on his comeback. It will be difficult for him and he's definitely going to take some time to get his rhythm/pace back. Even Boult has struggled and isn't the same bowler he was in the WC. Looks down in pace these days and he was only off for a few months.

    Bhuvi replaces injured Shami in Asia cup.

    Shami . Just read few days back that he was fit. WTF is going on with him? Bhuvi He is a very lucky bowler to keep getting selected inspite of performing poorly. Most Indian bowlers don't even get half of the chances that he gets. Don't we have any other bowler apart from Bhuvi?

    Rahul Shukla still bowls a heavy ball, but the speed guns in domestic matches are not that kind to him. Dilhara Fernando was bowling 133 k to 138 k in the overs that I saw.

    New update - Before Srinivasan became ICC chairman in June 2014, BCCI, like nine other full members, used to get 3.39% of the world body’s profits. It became 22.37% when ICC headed by Srinivasan increased the share of the ‘Big Three’ on the ground that they generate a major chunk of revenues. This entitled BCCI to $570.5 million or Rs 3822 crore for the 2015-23 cycle. The first part of it is due this year. Manohar’s proposal that this be reduced to 16% is expected to be opposed by several members at the meeting in Mumbai. ...While there are members supporting Manohar on this, they seem to be in the minority. “If I am given a good hike, how will it feel to take a cut immediately? The board’s situation is similar. We’ve to see if we are ready to part with Rs 1000 crore. As far as I know, many are against this,” said an association head on condition of anonymity. http://www.newindianexpress.com/cricket/news/Proposal-of-Rs-1000-Crore-Cut-in-ICC-Profits-Stumps-BCCI-Units/2016/02/17/article3281268.ece Most likely, this 6% will go down to 2-3%. However, it will be interesting to see who gets this 2-3%.

    Feel very sad for Pakistanis plight. .they are being forced to risk their lives unwillingly. . Looking at the unprofessional language this icc official has used it's obvious the guy is an indian. Since SL won the last edition, would love to see Pakistan winning this one on their tormentor's soil, overcoming all hardships and mental torturing.
