    Hardest hitter of the ball i have ever seen and the best in the world when it comes to keeping the spinners but other then that he is poor test match and t20i bat an average Odi bat, extremely poor and below average captain, baap of nepotism and an average wk against pacers!!

    Its nearly 2018, in what world does it make sense to play two has-beens in the T20 format? Its embarrassing bordering on disgusting that the T20 teams are progressively getting older with no young players even given a sniff of a chance.

    Under the current regime anybody under 35 is regarded as young. So the team under Kohli has actually got younger.

    Its like that fluke Asia cup win. They just need some sort of fig-leaf to cover their shame, no matter how small or illogical it may be. The delusions of "parity" will never cease. If all else fails, there's always that head to head record from the previous millenium that can be dusted off. Or Miandad's 6.

    I had written about the new Indian fast bowlers after the IPL, in the " Speed and Performance thread ". I am re-posting that here. My impressions of the new Indian fast-bowlers in this IPL -- Md.Siraj - He has been impressive. He has bowled with genuine pace with a very high percentage of deliveries at 135 k to 145 k. Plus he is a skiddy pacer who hurries on to the bat after pitching. Gets inswing on a consistent basis and the in-dipping skiddy quick balls result in a lot of bowled outs and LBWs. Has a good pacy bouncer and has developed decent yorkers and slower balls in this IPL. Hits the deck hard when needed and his height is ok. The best thing is that he was learning as the tournament progressed. He took 41 wickets from only 9 FC matches this season and is the one bowler to look out for as he knows how to pick up wickets. Needs to be picked for our A team and can play all formats. Avesh Khan -- He is tall and bouncy. Hits the deck hard and bowls a heavy ball. Gets the ball to seam in and is accurate.... makes the batsmen play. He is one of those quicks who hurry batsmen visually. Can bowl lots of 140 k + deliveries in an over. Reminds me a lot of Srinath. He was really unlucky to miss 13 matches this season and should have been played by RCB. He is a wicket taker too and was our best pacer in the last U19 WC. took loads of wickets. Don't know how he is not picked for the MP Ranji team. The selectors must see to it that he plays Ranji next season and he is good enough for our A team too. He is one of the most exciting pace prospects from India and only 20, so he should add pace as he becomes older. Nathu Singh -- He got injured and played only 2 games. But he is a big talent. Looked really good in those 2 games. Bowled 138 k to 145 k, swung the ball both ways, was very accurate and bowled a few good bouncers. His ER was only 3.75 in a T20 tournament. Would have shone even more if he had played 6 or 7 games. Another A team candidate. Kulwant Khejroliya -- The man was conspicuous by his absence. Did not get to play a single game despite taking 13 wickets from only 5 VH Trophy matches. He is genuinely quick and bouncy and a left-armer too. Saw him in a DY Patil match he was bowling some superb and fierce bouncers and yorkers. Basil Thampi -- He has impressed most commentators and his team management due to his ability to bowl quick, inswinging late-dipping yorkers at will. That is a rare skill and he needs to be backed. he bowled 134 k to 144 k , was skiddy and got regular inswing. He has a somewhat round-arm action and a lowish release point and that often robs him of bounce when bowling good length. He has a good, quick bouncer. Needs to improve his accuracy regarding all deliveries. He bowled all the difficult overs even in his first IPL and that speaks volumes about the confidence that his team management has in him. Ankit Rajpoot -- He did not get to play that many games too but did well whenever he was chosen. He is a tall pacer and can hit the deck hard. Gets good bounce. Bowled 132 k to 142 k in this IPL but bowled upto 147 k last time. He gets seam movement with regularity and comes across as a skilled pacer for the shorter formats. Seen him swing the ball in FC too. Has a decent slower ball. Shardul Thakur -- He was good one day and bad the next day. This inconsistency is due to the fact that he tries too many things and often ends up bowling a bad line, either down the leg or too wide. He has a lot of skills, swing, reverse swing, seam movement, good bouncer, decent slower balls and decent yorkers....but needs to use them judiciously. His speeds were 133 k to 145 k. Aniket Chaudhary -- He was not supposed to be a T20 bowler and did not do that well barring a couple of matches. Needs to improve his yorkers. But, he is a test prospect for sure as he is very tall, hits the deck hard, has a great bouncer and can swing the ball too. Bowls decent speeds too, 130 k to 143 k

    Thought this was interesting. Good to see another young talent being considered by the Indian team and he is very, very promising but also great to see that they're not taking any exceptions over fitness. http://www.thehindu.com/sport/cricket/yo-yo-the-new-dreaded-term-that-can-swing-a-players-fortunes/article19786606.ece Nehra passing it is a surprise.

    Sarfaraz has immense potential. Street smart cricketer, can hit the big shots and the cheeky shots. Perfect candidate for a finisher role in LOI's. Hope he scores lots of runs this season and gets back in the radar of the selectors.

    Nitish Rana: * Hitting prowess. Leading six hitter in SMA trophy in 2015. IPL can also vouch for it. * Uses feet against spinners well. Generally plays spinners very good. * Can hit pace bowlers big but at the same time is vulnerable against pace. * Paces his innings nicely with a mix of aggression and strike rotation.Definitely an ODI prospect least for sure.

    Heard some geniuses blaming dhoni Well who bought yuvi back, dhoni chucked him in ODi ages ago and it was kohli who had love for him and infact bought him for his IPL side as well. Who bought bhajji back in SL, dhoni also chucked him long ago Wasnt kumble the one to ask for gambhir return and also pushed yuvi's case He was happily pushing mishra case in test cricket before realising well he was a sad case When kohli was named captain for zimb tour, parvez rasool wasnt given a single game and dhoni wasnt even there. So wud people even blame dhoni their to

    Dhoni: Greatest Indian Cricketer?

    Strictly speaking collecting the ball is fielding. Wkt keeping is fielding. The position is more demanding than some of the slip fielders but outfielders also do lot of work. Everyone has a role to play.Wkt keepers have to collect lot of balls and out fielders have to run a lot.
