    This was the mysterious (and outrageous) headline that greeted me when I looked at the phone first thing in the morning. Immediately, I thought this must be some boastful Australian droning on about the record of their team in world tournaments etcetera etcetera before the Champions Trophy. Imagine my surprise then seeing that it was actually Misbah who came up with this nugget after the series win against West Indies. Now I am hardly upto date with the developments in Pakistan cricket but have they not been whitewashed twice before this hard fought win over an anemic Windian third XI? What exactly has this P@ki team achieved that makes, let's say Kohli or Smith, jealous of them?

    i think he was referring to their 81 all out. not many teams are bowled out for 81 by a west indies C team.

    Overall: Mumbai have won 15 of the 20 matches between the sides. vs The likely XIs Mumbai Indians: 1 Parthiv Patel (wk), 2 Lendl Simmons, 3 Rohit Sharma (capt), 4 Ambati Rayudu, 5 Kieron Pollard, 6 Krunal Pandya, 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Harbhajan Singh, 9 Mitchell McClenaghan, 10 Lasith Malinga, 11 Jasprit Bumrah Kolkata Knight Riders: 1 Sunil Narine, 2 Chris Lynn, 3 Gautam Gambhir (capt), 4 Robin Uthappa, 5 Yusuf Pathan, 6 Ishank Jaggi, 7 Suryakumar Yadav/Kuldeep Yadav, 8 Piyush Chawla, 9 Nathan Coulter-Nile, 10 Umesh Yadav, 11 Trent Boult The preview says Mumbai Indians will go with Mcclenaghan but after he gave some runs even against tail enders against Pune, I feel he will be out. Get Johnson in. He's a much better bowler. And probably get in Harbhajan in for Karn Sharma. This should have been the IPL final but I guess **** happens. Regardless, whoever wins this match is probably the best team anyways so here's to a great game.

    Bumrah bowla 146 k 145 k 144 k and 143 k in his 3rd over. Superbly accurate too with 3 yorkers
  8. 5 points
    The way Bumrah is bowling this season. ... combining pace and bounce with accuracy and seam movement.....picking wickets even when the batsman is not going for shots.....He should be tried in test matches. Should do no worse than Ishant. Bumrah had a good Ranji season too and has had practice bowling lots of overs. If he can sustain pace in the 5 day format, he should be tried.

    LOL, Dhoni fans v/s Sachin fans yet again. How about being an Indian cricket fan for a change? Sachin was a great batsman in the 90s, but it is a well known fact that he started playing for his 100s since about the turn of the century. The worst was the 100th 100 madness and it ultimately ended up costing us the Asia Cup. Dhoni, in comparison, is relatively a team player who does not care that much for 100s. He does care about saving his not outs though and keeping his average high. And when Dhoni is out of form, he can also do anything to try to save his arse. Don't forget the incident in the last IPL where he shamelessly demanded that Irfan Pathan give away his wicket despite Dhoni's fault that resulted in a run-out. And after that, Dhoni promptly went on to score 8*(22). http://www.cricketcountry.com/articles/ms-dhoni-at-fault-in-irfan-pathans-controversial-run-out-in-rps-vs-kkr-ipl-9-match-447591

    IPL Withdrawal Symptom

    Am beginning to suffer from IPL withdrawal syndrome already. It was fun to follow a game everyday and double-headers over the weekend for the past month and a half. Now I'm so used to it that it seems a bit off putting when there are no matches IMO I wouldn't mind a 4 month IPL season followed by a 1 month break, then rest of the intl matches or tourneys for 6 months and another 1 month rest period followed by IPL

    Finally we have a bowling unit headed by the killer Bs - Bhuvi & Bumrah - which would be fun to watch in an ICC tourney. Backed by Shami & Umesh and supported by decent spinners in Ashwin & Jaddu this could arguably be the best bowling attack we have put together And there's Pandya as well to provide support as pace all-rounder If somehow our batting holds up I expect our bowling to do the business this CT

    If Smith is so great why isn't he clearly visible in the jio dhan dhana dhan ad? He is languishing somewhere in the background. Even in the ad Dhoni takes centre stage.

    Oh yes, sandip also has rare ability to touch 130k too with his height and bounce, and killer Yorker would have troubled any batsmen in CT selectors are just morons to ignore this.
  29. 3 points
    That bowling attack is just not good enough, I would have had sandip unadkat and rishi dhawan in it, ATG sandips 130k thunderbolts would have rattled the best in the business in England and ohh yea not to forget unadkats slower ones would have been unplayable on greenish tracks in england, also rishi dhawan with his robot esq control is the perfect one to support both sandip n unadkat.

    My bowler choice for CT would be Bumrah Shami Bhuvi / Ashwin ( depending on the pitch ) Jadeja Hardik

    Hardik bowls 2 fiery and accurate bouncers in his 1st over. Very economical 16th over too.

    Superb bowling by Bumrah. Bowling 138 k to 145 k, looking quick visually, hitting the deck hard and getting bounce and seam movement. Amazingly accurate. Has already picked up 2 wickets from 2 overs for only 2 runs.

    Bumrah bowling really quick today.

    Rohit is the only player to win the IPL as both captain and player. even though performances wise Rohit has done it all catch of the tournament nomination,IPL hattricks,IPL 100s,hitting 46s to win a game where Dhoni doesn't have much to show for however credit where due Dhoni was the captain when his teammates pulled him along for the ride now doing the same when is a player so record being a record will he equal Rohit's incredible accomplishment by doing this? Dhoni doesn't realize but by screwing his team he is missing out on reaching the great man's status discuss

    Dilemma of the Dhoni fans

    So sad is the plight of the Dhoni fans nowadays. Someone who is losing respect by the day. Whose stocks are falling worse than Robert Vadra's. What do they do? 1) Attack other/retired players. But, but, but Sachin? Bro, he retired. But Kohli? But we are talking about Dhoni? But..but..but Sachin? Kohli Cringe level - 3 Dhonis 2) Invent a fantasy fan-fiction for themselves So Dhoni ha been kicked out of captaincy. His stocks are down in the team. Well pretend he is still relevant and important. Smith gave a pitying smile to Dhoni? That means he respects Dhoni! Dhoni is the man behind the scene? Write tons of fan fiction about how this is totally true you guys Cringe level - 3 and 1/2 Dhonis 3) Create a 100 threads about Dhoni themselves and pretend others are discussing him No one cares about a has been. There are so many exciting new talents to discover. Young players who are excelling with bat and ball. Every genuine fan is busy discussing them. So what do Dhoni fans do to make it look like he is still relevant? Start a 100 one liner topics about him. And then say, but but, see he is relevant you guys. Cringe level 21 ball 17 Dhoni knock in a T20 match 4) Rely on trolls and spammers to help them This is the most pathetic part. Since Dhoni fans are in short supply, poor guys feel outnumbered. So what do they do. Beg in front of trolls to support their player so that they can have strength is numbers. Quality of quantity is something they would never understand, poor guys. Having these guys on your side would mean you already lost. Cringe level 22 Dhonis 5) We do understand your plight We really do. We are the fans of players who gave so much to their country. Players whom we grew up with. Players who laid the foundation of where our team is at today. There was a day when you guys were taking pot-shots at our favorite and their fans just because Dhoni was doing good. You were not kind. You didn't care about anyone else. Now the shoe is on your foot and it pinches. But we are kinder and classier and we really do understand what it feels like. Just take it easy and time will solve everything once Dhoni retires Cringe level None

    Dilemma of the Dhoni fans

    When these Dhoni chamchas claim all others are Rattled, they remind me of Kejriwal and AAPTards... Who used to claim, "Modi Ji and BJP are SCARED of us... they are RATTLED!"... There no deeper shame than to be compared with Kejriwal & AAPtards...

    This is what happens when people don't follow domestic cricket and think IPL is the be and all of Indian cricket. Good that Indian selectors have considered the domestic form for selection. Dinesh Karthick fully deserves it.Has been by million miles the player in our domestics this season.Highest run getter in both Vijay Hazare and Deodhar trophy.Including century against India B in the final. Credit to selectors for not mixing up formats for once.

    Even Banga boys got there many years before Pak eventually did. I am thinking the World he might be referring to is: Ireland, Kenya, UAE, Canada, Nepal, Netherlands, Scotland. These teams are not yet Test teams and beating WI in WI when they get Test status might still be a dream for them.

    Fans are upset because the team is constructed to play ODI cricket in the pre-2015 style. We don't aim for 370, we aim for 320 - and as a result, consistently come up short against stronger batting teams. Losing a home series against SA, a home and away ODI series against Aus, WC semifinal -all of these indicate that we are in need of tactical and personnel changes on the batting front. India have always been a team that wins games with its batting, especially with the white ball. Currently we are not in the top 3 batting teams in ODIs, and fans want to address this with personnel changes.

    Not surprising given the complete lack of vision by the current selectors. Just keep on recycling the same old on a never ending repeat cycle.
