    Dhoni: Greatest Indian Cricketer?

    I feel he is already the best wicket keeper batsman of all time, but winning the ct13, t20 world cup 2007, cricket world cup 2011, surely cements him as the best cricketer India has ever produced. That is 3 pieces of silverware, while teams like new zealand and south africa have cobwebs in their cupboards. He is far from finished either. Has an excellent record this year. One match where he couldn't finish it off in a meaningless odi series and people want him kicked. smh. Fans need to have faith, he is here to stay until 2019 world cup. Love you Dhoni!

    The no.4 conundrum

    Dhoni is the singular reason why India's batting looks unsettled even though there is an abundance of talent. Dhoni would still hit the occasional boundaries and sixes to make his fans cream themselves but it's easy to see that his abilities have suffered, irrevocably. He cannot hit out at a sustained rate for any meaningful length of overs. Time to put him to pasture was 2 years ago. With Dhoni gone, Rahul would become doubly important for India's ODI XI. Why? Because, along with Kohli himself, he'd be the only batsman in the team to lend a touch of solidity WITHOUT compromising on strike power. This is the balance that even the current England's ODI team lacks. And this is the balance that WC conquering Australian ODI XIs in 2000s did NOT lack. Eventually, I'd want the Indian XI to look something like this come 2019. Dhawan Rohit Kohli Rahul Pant Krunal Hardik Vijay Shankar/Kuldeep/Chahal Bhuvneshwar Shami Bumrah

    Dhoni: Greatest Indian Cricketer?

    lol based on 1 format and that too the ODI format, what an insult to the real top 5 Indian cricketers. The top 5 Indian cricketers are as follows:- Sachin Tendulkar Kapil Dev Sunil Gavaskar Rahul Dravid Anil Kumble Kohli has a chance to break into the top 5

    One of the Greatest if not the Greatest. His Test Cricket Game, both his batting and captaincy was below average which hampers him from qualifying to be the greatest Indian Cricketer. SRT followed by Kapil Dev are two of the greatest Indian Cricketer's for sheer impact they had on Indian Cricket, on fans, being an inspiration to millions to play the game. So in terms of Greatest Cricketers,here are my top 5 picks. 1) Sachin Tendulkar 2) Kapil Dev 3) MS Dhoni 4) Rahul Dravid 5) Sunil Gavaskar On the outside, Sourav Ganguly for me is the greatest Indian Captain for picking this team up and building the team from dust.

    Dhoni: Greatest Indian Cricketer?

    Don't mix captaincy with other aspects. GOAT in terms of LOI captain. GOAT keeper ATG in ODI batting Avg in test captaincy,test and T20I batting. Far from being the greatest Indian cricketer.

    Kb indian ocean littoral states in mid summer are not for outdoors sport u need to be a special superhuman to bowl 140 all day. The humidity makes the feels like temp 5 degrees more and it usually hovers around 35 to 40 UAEs dry heat can be fought with fluids but not SL TN or Kerala its something else. Geneuinly without trolling only Aussie pacers can out pace Indian pace squad atm in tests.

    The no.4 conundrum

    First of all don't get offended as I was also his fan. Now coming to the topic how can you blame youngster who are not yet sure of their position as we have to accommodate dhoni in between according to situation. Also contributing as captain should not be criteria of selection and as far as keeping is concerned that's his primary role and it is bau for him and least requirement .When we talk about 250 chases he is not winning them alone even last time when we chases 250 in crisis situation Bhuvi outscored him. So please don't give excuse as contributing in captaincy, we need just one captain and if Virar is not good enough he should be replaced with someone more suitable. But dont cry hypothetical stuff which is least require for winning. Also any youngsters need thorough chance to establish himself. What I can see he is hindering a potential talent pant who should have been groomed after ct 17.

    If we can't win Ranji this season with squad we have , I will give up hope we might ever win it again lol. This team should make it to the final at worst. Mukund Vijay Gandhi Karthick Sunder Aparjith or Inderjith Shankar Ashwin Aushik Srinivas or Rahil Shah Vignesh Crist or Natarajan.

    In ODIs Kapil and UV too are better than Dhoni. Kumble, Srinath, Zak, Dada, Sehwag are more or less at his level.

    Pakistani fast bowling is a myth now.Who was the last pakistani fast bowler to take 200 test wickets?
  24. 2 points
    He was referring to bowling speeds Both Indian quicks bowled 135 k to 147 k in the last test series in SL .... in hot and humid conditions Pakistani seamers are bowling 126 k to 140 k in this test series.

    Washington Sundar capped off a memorable match with career-best figures of 6 for 87 as India Red wrapped up a 163-run win over India Blue to lift the 2017-18 Duleep Trophy on the fourth day in Lucknow. It was Washington's second five-wicket haul of the match, coming on the back of 5 for 94 in Blue's first innings, and gave him a first-class-best match haul of 11 for 181. The wickets came in addition to a first-innings knock of 88, and 42 in the second that lifted Red from 58 for 4 and recover to 208, setting Blue an improbable 393 to win. http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8630/report/1118611/day/4/

    Dhoni: Greatest Indian Cricketer?

    LOL what a joke of a thread, Plz don't bring the quality of this forum down with these garbage threads. Dhoni is nowhere near to being the best Indian cricketer, He was a pathetic test player, He's not even the best Indian cricketer in ODIs as Sachin and Kohli are easily ahead of him and he's a garbage t20 international player. So basically dhoni is great in just 1 format and even in that he's behind at least 2 cricketers.

    RIP ........................... Insensitive indeed...but we have so much to more to be outraged about. We should be outraged about the obsession of an over populated country with producing children no matter what. We should be outraged about the lack of proper infrastructure. We should be outraged about our lack of civic sense and civic patience as a national culture. We question the treatment to the dead more than the living. In an overcrowded chaotic hospital, the numbers on the forehead were probably the fastest way for kin to identify and recover and claim the bodies of their loved ones. Tags on the clothes or hands/ feet would probably have been more respectful but then we are not the most sensitive of people when it comes to people other than our own immediate family. We shove and push in public places. We don't think about people ahead or behind us.

    Restrict bilaterals to max 3 matches Play more triangular series Bring back 1 ball rule Remove power plays after 10 overs Allow 4 bouncers in a over in first 10 and last 10 overs. 2 bouncers in remaining 30 overs Bouncer rule will probably make teams think more. Some bowlers will get carried away and likely to be thrashed for sixes over in last 10 overs as batsmen will look to score on misdirected balls. Some bastsmen will be exposed as they miss and play lot of dot balls.

    Surgical Strike heroes speak out

    While I agree with you on the BJP's shamelessness in trying to milk political mileage out of issues and incidents which should be kept apolitical, I disagree with you on keeping this private. Both armies have deployed so-called "Border Action Teams" against each for other for decades now. This one was just a bit larger in scope than most. I believe that the conscious decision to publicize the strike, was a good move. I also loved the master-stroke of categorizing the strike as one aimed at 'terrorist launch-pads' as opposed to PakMil posts - when in reality, there isn't much difference between the 2. The public follow-up ramped up the pressure on the PakMil to "do something", and fits in with the current strategy to heat up the LOC - something that the PakMil would rather not do. They can't afford the constant and growing cost of a hot LOC. in arms, ammo as well as men. This is the reason why the PakMil Jernails won't even share casualty details with their own elected government. If that became public knowledge, the pressure on PakMil to retaliate and escalate would be too great for them to bear. Fire and Fury along the LOC is a 'theater" of operations where India has the advantage. The rationale for this is to create a pain point for PakMil, and thereby some leverage of our own where we can apply pressure, in exchange for their shameless support of "non-state actors" across the LOC. They turn off their tap, so will we - they keep it going, so will the Indian border forces. Btw, this is not a 'new' strategy that the BJP can take credit for - Indian army was already given a "free hand" and were doing this before BJP came to power. But arguably, the policy and the implementation have sharpened in focus and firepower since then.

    I would take 71-4 if atleast 3 of those wickets are from overs 1-25 as compared to 55-0. And I wouldn't pick Umesh for ODIs.
