  1. Karthik vs Saha

    It’s not his athletic ability or fitness or keeping technique that is the question,his ability to concentrate for long periods of time.
  2. Karthik vs Saha

    English conditions are far more challenging for a keeper..has DK ever kept in England? Also with our pathetic slip catching last thing we want is a poor keeper...yeah he is marginally ahead of Pappu but that is no benchmark.
  3. Karthik vs Saha

    What about keeping...I always think he has a concentration of a gold fish...don’t trust him as a test keeper. Maybe as a pure bat, well where is the slot for him?
  4. Why does beating Bangladesh feel so good ?

    Their fans and players bar 1 or 2 are the most annoying bunch. Hell even Pakistanis and Lankans were cheering for us...and you are surprised about Indians hating them?
  5. Karthik vs Saha

    No please...let us not have a mediocre tontee tontee tournament cloud our judgement. Saha is already our greatest keeper bat in tests and his keeping alone is worth its weight in gold. Saha and we need to act fast to groom a younger keeper. Dk can play T20s and this innings should promote him for Odis that’s about it
  6. Bigger question is do rookies need to be judged based on T20 performances?
  7. Sending Shankar over DK

    With Pandey struggling...It was a good decision...the idea was if Shankar got even 15(8) kind of knock that would have made it easy for Karthik to use his experience and finish it off smoothly ...Had we lost Karthik at that stage it would have been curtains.Shankar started of well too hitting a 4 in his 2nd ball but had know clue against Fizz. Rohit has won this tournament with his captaincy
  8. Pant,Siraj and now Shankar...not good signs. Thakur is mediocre but even he lets pressure get to him when he gets hit for a couple of boundaries Only guy who has delivered from game 1 is Bumrah
  9. I loved when he was yelling at Karthik for attempting the 2nd...don’t take it don’t take the 2nd
  10. Is @Austin 3:!6 delivering stone cold stunners in the Bangladesh forum
  11. Antics of mediocre Srilankan and Bangladeshi sides and guys like DK of all people have made PSL irrelevant lol
  12. Even Chahal and Kuldeep are not great under pressure to be honest
  13. Gotta say Sundar looks like he belongs though
  14. Vijay Shankar performance watch

    He let pressure get to him...Apart from Bumrah haven’t seen a young player taking into internationals like a fish to water so far.thats not a good sign...Pandya will give it to him has the confidence but sometimes overconfidence which is his problem
  15. Vijay Shankar performance watch

    Do you do this on purpose or is it clinically diagnosed? Shankar or for the matter of fact Siraj have both got a shot on the basis of strong domestic numbers as well as decent IPL showing. On top of that they have age on their side and not a battle hardened domestic verterans. Now Siraj has got decent chances and has fumbled it every time so time to go back and work on the basics.Being part of IPL might get a chance to work with some good coaches. Shankar on the other hand has had his first bad game, did well with the ball every chance he got. Yes batting is his strong suite but tell me how many rookies have done well in their first batting stint in a pressure final in a pressure situation? Look I believe when we invest in someone we give them a fair run regardless of who it is and I think he deserves a few more chances and has done nothing wrong to be dumped yet. Based on today’s game not a good start though and he needs to do a lot more now to make up for it.
  16. Vijay Shankar performance watch

    Pandey was worse also first knock at the international level is in a pressure game in a pressure situation...still you either have to or you don’t. His fault to let nerves get to him. However unfair to write him off on 1 performance
  17. DK>Dhoni

  18. I think sweet to see the heartbreak...this is better than total annhilation of Bangladeshs DK you beauty
  19. He is not even a chela...some random diplomatic statement and all the CsK fans started treating him like you know how they pick Dalai Lama and Shankaracharya
  20. God we have DK followed by 2 rookies next and guys like @jusarrived we’re saying Rohits dismissal last game would have resulted in this team making 200
  21. Pandey has lost the game I think
