    Even Pakistan’s lower order >>>> India’s

    SR is not a factor on green mambas neutralizing new ball is. 236 balls is nearly 40 overs that is approx 8 overs per match neutralizing the new ball which helped us win the series. What a beast a mosnotrous 264 on one day and a sedate new ball neutralizing knock on another hallmark of a champion. Switching gears according to situation

    How is your sample set getting lower and lower from 13 games to now 5. Oh wait may be because of that incredible 100 in Aus

    Can you provide numbers behind that? Instead of %? 2(1) is a 200 strike rate where as 150(100) is a 159 strike rate.

    Favorable conditions 13 games this year out of which some games were on Green manbas in Nzl. By the same account Rayudu and Shankar are heroes and deserving a spot in the squad and Hardik has missed all of these games

    Breakout Player of the WC

    Too many names to add a poll but I am going with Hardik Pandya, Hetmeyer and Jofra Archer is he sneaks in. If I have to pick one it’s got to be Archer

    43 of 54 is not the target. The target is to carry the bat and end up with 150(125) for any of the top 3 and the others play around them

    People blaming our top order. Serious question let us say Rohit gets out for 35(18), Dhawan for 50(30) and Kohli for 80(42) that is 165/3 from 15 overs what will be the final score we will still end up with given our current middle order? I remember we were 300/3 after 40 and ended up with 375 odd with Pandey and Dhoni at the death against Srilanka I beleive

    Kuldeep or Bumrah at best are batsman who can give good support in a collapse situation by hanging in. They cannot hack the ball. Shami and Bhuvi are capable of scoring some runs. In fact Bhuvi is miles better than Jadeja

    No one is hyping them. The premise of this thread is that even their lower order can hack a few quick runs “even them” being a key word where as our middle order is either tuk tuk or filled with bunnies with the bat.

    England vs Pak 3rd ODI

    This Tom Curran is good. Looks like the wrong Curran got the IPL contract. Even though Sam is not too bad but more of a test player

    WC19 Fun Series

    WC final against Bangladesh Early collapse chasing One man stands like a rock Gets us close but then gets out raising temperatures in Bangladesh as they can sniff a win In walks DK Toygers stunned Rinse and repeat. Another heartbreak @vvvslaxman and @The Dark Horse after DK’s heroics

    WC19 Fun Series

    After 4 T20 100s and some more near misses, after 3 200s with a 250+ and some more near misses, I banish any fan from the great cult of rohitism if their expectation is only 150+

    @zen I also find offensive that you say expectation is only 150 one more time

    1.Rohit (c) captaincy is the most important thing. You pick X1 superstars butnif you don’t have a guiding light it will be pointless. It will be like a rudderless ship. so now on the remaining 10 2.Warner 3.Rahul 4.Aggarwal 5.Pant (WK) 6.Russell 7.Pandya 8.S.Gopal 9.Rabada 10.I.Tahir 11.J.Bumrah R.Chahar,D.Chahar, Butler and Bairstow narrowly miss out

    Rohit takes credit for Malinga's last ball wicket

    Malinga who was tonked all match with one dimensional bowling suddenly turns up and bowls the ball of the match clearly he was told what to bowl. Rohit had done this before as well. Remember there legendary advise to Bumrah that won us the Aussie series. Ro is just being humble, the entire last 2 overs was his doing :)

    Game of Thrones Season 8 Official Trailer

    Well if you put it that way anyway I think they planned out how to end the story arc of each character in advance and I think the over all the character arc on paper looks good. Among all the guys who died so far Ser Jorah, The red woman, Benedict, Hound, Cersei,Jamie and Theon on paper had the perfect arc. The one’s that felt under cooked are Varys and Night King. May be the execution in getting there felt underwhelming is that right?
  21. Really lol? I thought Matthews was there captain after their big 3 retired and maybe Chandimal for a while. I am more familiar with Afghan and Bangladesh players these days. Can’t name more than 2-3 players from Srilanka. What was the name of the guy again who played the innings of the decade? Don’t even remember his name without googling lol.

    Game of Thrones Season 8 Official Trailer

    Let’s see John Snow- he has been set up as a goody goody hero warrior right from the start- so nothing unusual here Cersei- Jamie- them dying together is a perfect end. Couldn’t have happened any other way. Theon- one of the best written characters in TV history ignoring the books of course. Sansa- from a meek bimbo to a strong queen who stands for herself Learning to play the political game. Arya- her character has gone all over the place for many seasons now The Hound- perfect end I agree that Tyrion has been screwed up. For being the most intelligent person in the world, has screwed up and had bad judgement too many times. Varys- should have had more depth in the last 2-3 seasons Ser Jorah- again no better way to kill him off. Danerys- character evolved perfectly before she snapped Night king- went phuss but he had to die. Overall what has been a let down? I see more wins here

    Watson with blood on knees playing the knock in the final

    So Watson could not finish the game with bleeding knee after getting it this close. What a wimp ? @Gollum sound familiar?
