    1. Mumbai Indians Strength- Everything, even if they wont have gone in the Auction they still wud have been a very good team. Addition of boult n Lynn have made them very powerful. Bowling lineup - malinga, Bumrah, boult.....wow best and experinced Fielding- Boult, Hardik, Pollard, Rahul chahar are outstanding fielders Indian all rounder- Pandya bros Think tank has great minds- Rohit, mahela, Sachin, Bond, Zak, malinga, Boult, Bumrah , Wright Weakness- Post Rahul chahar spin bowling Dept looks weak no backup Hardik pandya which isnt even avl . Other comments They Shud include Lynn instead of kock which wud be more ideal with somone like Rohit and they enough depth to go bang bang from ball -1 How the Fck does tiwary get picked again n again 2. RCB Strength- Batting looks mighty good now . Finch n morris are very good buys ....they shud pray morris finds some form Good Indian core- Kohli, Sundar, Dube,Chahal, Saini,Siraj, umesh, Devdutt Weakness- Bowling still doesnt look great and Kohli the captain will somehow screw a good team again Other comments How do they fit in Devdutt, they shud think about making Gurkeerat keep wkts. Neways Parthiv is a terrible keeper and Siraj or umesh if u play them extra bowler will leak runs only so if ur bowling aint that good make sure ur batting can put or chase any total . Hesson n Katich shud take more charge of selection n tell kohli to be more of captain on field n take help from finch Why did they spend 4 cr on Richardson 3. KKR Strength- Batting looks very powerful with inclusion of Banton, Tripathi n morgon. Wont be wrong to say they have the most powerful middle order Weakness- I wud say depth in Indian batting n spin bowling. Overseas backups in batting doesnt look great either Other comments They shud include banton instead of Narine as narine the bowler isnt same banton can bowl a bit. KKR top order needs a force and banton is being touted very highly by every expert. They need someone who can give great platform for the middle order. They shud hope mavi stays fit and kuldeep form get better 4. RR Strength- one of the best 4 overseas any team can have which covers most bases - Butler, Smith, Stokes, Archer. Some young Indian talent - Samson, Parag, Kartik tyagi, gopal, markhande, Rajpoot can actually surprise people . Addition of uthappa is good Weakness - Backup of overseas batsman isnt good ....just miller They shud give uthappa finishers role as it ll allow smith to bat at 3 his best alone position n stokes n parag to bat up. uthappa has done that for India in few innings and can do here as well....while finishing u need experience and he has it Gopal, markhande, Tewatia are lucky to be working with warne for those days. 5. KXIP Strength- KL Rahul, Pooran, Cottrell . Jordon n Neesham are good buys Weakness- To many mayank, Nair, mandeep, Sarfraz, hooda,sucith hasnt set IPL on fire ....so Indian core isnt great Gayle n maxwell are very inconsistent. If none has a good season they are screwed Shami their best indian fast bowler isnt good in t20 backup indian fast bowling doesnt look good To many loopholes wont allow them to play best 4 overseas players Owners interfere a lot For them a lot of things have to click or else they i dont seem them doing well and their owners are worst in this situation. Will depend a lot on Rahul n Kumble keep team enviorment. They have some match winners but not team . In such cases a lot depend on resources are used when they arent that great. 6. Delhi Captial Strength- Batting became more powerful. Utility specialist like ashwin, woakes and then other all rounder like Paul, Axar, harshal will allow them to be very flexible. Good backup overalls. All their talent is on rise in terms of Skill and experience Weakness- Lower middle order doesnt have match winners its mostly in top or middle which might affect one of indian batsman position Problem of plenty in top order and utility all rounder can mess up combination. Playing Right combination wud be the key 7. SRH They could have looked at uthappa in Auction or someone to exchange in middle order or fast bowling during transfer Strength - What top 3 Fielding- Warner, Williamson, manish, Shankar very good fielders to have on field Captaincy Core- Warner, Williamson, manish are very good minds to have Weakness- Bowling - Bhuvi form n injury , Kaul was soughted last season. Sandeep is similar to bhuvi and Thampi leaks so fast bowling back isnt geart anymore due to top 3 they cant add overseas player in bowling or all rounder top 3 heavy Lack of impact players in Lower order middle order - Manish, Shankar, Virat singh, Garg arent very destructive. Garg n abhishek can be but they are very young Indian batting has option but lacks flair and experience apart from Manish. Garg n abhishek are good but are very young as well so u cant rely on them. No overseas fast bowling backup May be they have to look at benching williamson to add someone like Nabi or Stanlake to get balance better . 8. CSK A team being laughed off in last 2 years as Dad's army having last laugh showing how much experience matters. Their team culture is recognized as best by other IPL team players. Strength Experience- Most important thing in winning tournaments Captaincy core- Dhoni, Faf, Fleming Curran , Chawla are very good additions Backups for everyone apart from dhoni Team culture Weakness Lack of match pratice for most - Dhoni, raina, rayudu , bhajji . Even Watson doesnt play international so this could backfire big time Fielding- even though they have faf, bravo , jadeja, raina still they have many liabilties No death bowler apart from bravo who teams have figured out I wont comment on them as they prove everyone otherwise every year First XI MI CSK RCB KKR SRH KXIP RR DC 1 Lynn Faf Finch Banton/Narine Warner Rahul Butler Shaw 2 Rohit Watson Devdutt Tripathi Bairstrow mayank Samson Pant 3 Kishen Raina Kohli Gill Williamson Pooran Smith Heytmer 4 Pollard Rayudu ABDV Morgan Manish Maxwell Stokes Pant 5 Hardik Dhoni Dube Rana Abhishek Nair/Sarfraz Riyan parag Iyer 6 SKY Bravo/curran Sundar DK Shankar Mandeep singh uthappa Harshal patel 7 Krunal Jadeja Morris/Moeen ali Russell Rashid khan Suchith/hooda Lomror/ Kartik tyagi Axar 8 Rahul Chahar Chahar Mann (keeper) Cummins Nadeem Neesham/jordon/mujeeb Gopal Ashwin 9 Boult Chawla Steyn Kuldeep Kaul/Sandeep/Thampi Gowtham Tewatia/Markhande Woakes 10 Malinga Bhajji Saini Prasidh Bhuvi Cottrell Archer Rabadda 11 Bumrah Ngidi Chahal Mavi Khaleel Shami Rajpoot Lamichane/Stonis/Carrey/Keemo Paul Best Openers- SRH Best middle order n finishers - KKR Best Spin bowling- CSK Best Fast bowling - MI Best young Indian batting- DC Best Young indian bowling - KKR Best 4 overseas in one team- RR Best Indian Core without overseas- MI....Csk can also be but they fail due to lack of match practice

    Gambhir always calls a spade a spade. And has very good eye for talent ... and knows which types of players succeed in international cricket. And can fight for young talent ... as he showed in the Navdeep Saini case. He is an ideal candidate for becoming a selector.

    Channeling my inner Harsh Thakor A lanky young man from the streets of Porbandar emerged yet again reminiscent of yet another lanky young man before him who stood up against the colonial regime and showed the power of non-violence. Much like his predecessor this young man spread the message of love and peace in the brutal days of T20 by standing up to the colonial game. This man’s presence would bring an effervescent smile to the most intense and brute of batsmen. If the other great from his hometown was blessed with fame, this great was blessed by the gods of fortune themselves . The 2nd most famous destiny’s child after Beyoncé. The slingy left armer delivered amazing variations like the smash ball, the thrash ball, the slower ball, the hit me any where ball, the are you fking kidding me ball sprinkled with the odd wide and no ball. His story would be etched on the footnote of the cricket books forever and ever Long live Majid Khan

    Virat wants to experiment in LOIs

    But he has been doing that since 2017. It has been a ongoing process ever since. With no results to boot. No idea who is the no.4 No idea which is the best spin combo No idea who is the all rounder No idea who is the 5th bowler No idea who is the late order hitter No idea who is 3rd seamer or is it the batting/bowling all rounder Sometimes it is Rayudu, then Jadhav, then Vijay Shankar, then DK, then Pandey, then Pant, then Iyer, then Dube. It's fair to say he is by far the worst Indian captain in a long time.

    Do you know that there was a partition? Do you know that it was demanded by Muslims? Do you know that they got two separate countries? Do you know that presently there are two Islamic republics in the subcontinent? So we are to give up land and resources in 1947 for Muslims, then we also take in illegal Muslim immigrants from these Islamic republics. What are we? Fools?

    Greats teams have always had great bowlers and great fast bowlers. Have not seen any exception. In test matches, the only way to win is by taking 20 wickets. Even if the batsmen score 1000 runs, if the bowlers don't take 20 wickets then a team cannot win a single match. In LOIs, the easiest way to win consistently is by taking opposition wickets at regular intervals or in bunches ... and take them quickly. This is because it takes just 1 good ball to dismiss a set batsman. But a batsman has to put in a lot of effort to put up a winning score. Let's take yesterday's ODI for example. Kuldeep and Shami were bowling poorly but both changed the course of the match after bowling 1 good over each. While Smith could not win the match after batting well for around 100 balls. Who says it is a batsman's game ? Why do people become fast bowlers ? For the thrill and adrenaline rush.

    ODI team 1. Rohit 2. Dhawan / Rayudu 3. Rahane / Pujara 4. Kohli 5. Jadhav 6. Dhoni 7. Jadeja 8. Shardul 9. D.Chahar 10. Ashwin 11. Bhuvi / Unadkat ---- Batting till 11 ---- Opposition batsman won't get any pace to hit ... no delivery will be bowled above 138 k. ---- We will enter the Guinness book of World Records because 100+ knuckle balls will be bowled by the " pacers " in every single match. ---- No wrist spinner ... so we get more control. ---- Our over rate would be very good as no wicket will fall while we are bowling. ---- Dhoni will be there with priceless guidance and instructions like " Seedha daal ", " Aur slow daal ".etc. ---- BCCI's costs will come down as most of these players will get " Senior Citizen Discount ". ---- Our batsmen won't get hit on the head and body in the nets, by pesky bowlers like Bumrah. Saini and Shami. All injuries pre match will be during football sessions only. ---- Cost of security guards will come down. Rahane can be one of them as he has a black belt in Karate. ---- Youngsters won't be led astray by Bewda ... as none will be in the team.

    No central contract for Dhoni

    Devoid of a 'central contract' if Dhoni were to be selected now, does it imply that he gets to represent India pro bono? Can't think of a bigger act of patriotism.

    How dare you speak like that about the besht ever Indian captain? Gill and Shaw have to relaunch themselves as middle order batsmen if they want to play for India. Poor Kohli is just doing the best with what he's got. In fact India punched above their weight to make it to the Semis because of Kohli and his buddies.

    It does not matter to score runs against Sri Lanka, Shikhar Dhawan is nothing in front of KL Rahul: Srikanth Team India's left-handed veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan is back in the 3-match T20 series against Sri Lanka following an injury. After Dhawan's injury, KL Rahul got an opportunity in Team India, who left no stone unturned to capitalize on the opportunity. Quadrilateral Under-19 Series: India beat Zimbabwe by 89 runs on the basis of Divyansh's century and Yashasvi's half-century Former Indian cricket team opener and chief selector Chris Srikkanth says that if he were currently the chairman of the Indian Cricket Team selection committee, he would not have chosen Shikhar Dhawan to replace KL Rahul for the upcoming T20 World Cup. <! – -> Srikanth said on Sunday that he would like to keep Rahul in the team instead of Dhawan for this year's T20 World Cup. Dhawan is returning to international cricket after a long period. In his absence, Rahul has emerged as a strong contender for a spot in the opener in limited-overs cricket. INDvSL, 1st T20: India-Sri Lanka match rained Srikanth told Star Sports, 'Runs against Sri Lanka don't matter. If I were the chairman of the selection committee, I would not have selected Dhawan for the T20 World Cup. There is no competition between him and Rahul. The Indian team will play the T20 World Cup in Australia in October-November this year. Before the World Cup, Team India has to play 15 T20 matches.

    Deep Dasgupta saying that the 3rd pacer slot should go to a really quick pacer ... 145 k+ ... and Saini is ahead in that pecking order. Manju objecting and talking about Chahar or Bhuvi for that slot.

    Team India’s Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane is again in the scheme of things in the ODI format and is line to make a comeback soon. As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Rahane’s name was discussed by an important member of the team during the selection meeting. Although the selectors decided against naming the squads for the New Zealand ODIs and Tests.

    Seems like smashing tv is a tradition in Pakistan. On a serious note, the treatment with Danish Kaneria and now this open bigotry from Afridi, imagine what normal hindus go through in Pakistan. And then when our govt passes a bill to give shelter to those hindus, our liberal brothers protest. What a shame. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Iyer now has played continuously from WI tour......has found his feet Pant post Dhoni gone on sabbatical has played continuous and finally he is finding his feet KL has played 6 t20s and 2 ODi together which is not much but has gotten betetr with every game, even when he played WC whole he did decent. Moral of the story : Youngsters need continuity n safety .....they ll fail but thats where u need to back them coz everyone fails . If they wont fail how would they learn . Kohli became better batsman after england tour debacle. All these young players have earned their spot all they need is time to crack international cricket...some take less time some take more but have patience Kohli gave all these guys around 5-10 games before Wc....which was so foolish. He talks about idolizing dhoni who after 2011 Wc said we need to give young guys 70-80 games exp Kohli is fan boy of guys like yuvi, rohit forgetting they got immense backing from their captain. Kohli wasted a lot of time on guys like rayudu, raina, DK....hope now he learns his lesson even though we can still see Jadhav in Lineup
