  1. Washington Sundar is the find of this pointless tournament...very impressive young man. However I always felt it was between him and Krunal Pandya for that spin bowling all rounder slot. Both Sundar and K.Pandya impressed in the IPL 2017. However for now it is safe to say that Sundar has moved up the pecking order. Obviously Sundar seems the better bowler but I like K.Pandya’s batting skills...From what I have seen the better bat But the questions I have is why has K.Pandya fallen below the pecking order? Is there an opportunity/slot for both? Are they comparable in terms of skill levels? Will Pandya sr fit in the scheme of things right now? Ashwin and Jadeja don’t think it is 100% curtains for them yet with them being star players in the IPL they will get plenty of opportunities to be back in the scheme of things what do you guys think?
  2. Washington Sundar vs Krunal Pandya

    Yes has proved to be a good bowler and that too against 2 teams atleast where the stereotype is they play spin well being from the subcontinent...might do well against the white boys and WI hacks as well. Havent seen his batting at any level but seen Krunal bat and bowl...I think Sundar is ahead as the bowler but is he a better bat than Krunal?
  3. Yes should have tried the bench a lot more. Pant is unfortunately out for now,Rahul should have never been dropped,DK is in for his keeping but looks like the team management rates him highly as a batsman too . Pandey has done well so won’t be dropped. Rohit and Dhawan pick themselves However even Sundar and Shankar who have got opportunities in the team have not gotten chance to showcase their batting skills but credit where due have grabbed their opportunities with the ball in what is a weak bowling attack overall so where does Hooda fit in?
  4. no wonder Dravid was rejecting all the extra money BCCI was giving him...huge returns ke chakkar me Anyways jokes apart first rule of financial investment not thought in any B school...common sense....when a scheme is too good to be true,question it.

  6. Rohit Sharma - Berserk mode ON !!!

    Who is denying Raina’s knock today....I am replying to the claim that the middleorder would knock the opposition into submission on this pitch. spade a spade 31(30) was a bit too cautious,however our approach has always been that one of the top 3 bat through and none of our middle order have shown the firepower. What is the tangible proof that if Rohit had got out at 20(10) we would score 200+ we might have still ended up at a similar score. Every knock there is a thin line between being a good knock and a bad knock and based on the result his knock was good...good to expect a 100(40) balls every game but this was a good knock
  7. And that is why guys like Pant,Siraj and even Thakur to some extent were picked based on a mix of potential and performances...guys like Unadkut and DK based on their domestic exploits. obviously if someone doesn’t cash in their chances it’s on them.
  8. No muscles needed...all timing and pure lazy elegance
  9. Wait till Bhuvi bowls to CSk on bowling friendly Hyderabad grounds
  10. So how do you pick a player? Based on mountain man ethnicity? Vinay Kumar was poor but are you saying he didn’t deserve a shot based on years of topping the charts and being the best bowler in the country? Yes after a while we found out he didn’t have it in him and selectors have given up. Even Pant has looked average in the 2 games...By the same account Bangladesh and Srilanka have better batting than bowling.I am a still a backer of Pant to do well eventually. Yes the ones who are average will be dropped or go back and work on the game especially the younger ones like Pant and Siraj ...but they were hyped for performing and showing talent at some level.
  11. Dude the fact that they are selected means they performed at some level be it domestics or IPL and the hype was based on that....obviously all of them bar Thampi have been average, obviously the next set of talented performers will be hyped. Are you saying you cannot talk about a prospect until he takes 50 international wickets or something?
  12. Winning captain, Rohit Sharma: "as I said at the toss, it was important for me to return to form. Although, I felt we were 10-15 short, but they bowled well at the death. Anyway, Washington's spell up front was magical. It's not easy for a spinner to bowl with the new ball, so hats off to him. The rest of the bowlers executed their plans perfectly too at the back end. The pitch wasn't the usual wicket, and the ball was gripping. It wasn't easy to hit on the up as well, so I decided to take some time getting set. I knew the new batsmen would find it tough. Raina's been in terrific form too, so hope he does well in the final too. Washington has been courageous to take the ball from me, not afraid to flight the ball, and he's very clear on what he wants to execute. That allows me to breathe easy. When a bowler knows what field to set, that talks a lot about that individual. He bowled well in SL as well. Before Siraj's final over, all I told him was to keep it simple. I just wanted him to continue bowling the back-of-the-length ball because we found that tough to hit as well. Whatever I've seen of him, he can execute those plans. I can understand nerves, but he's a great talent. He will go strength to strength. Wasn't a great game for him, but he's a great talent." whatta captain
  13. Bowled extremely well has good temperament but skills not totally sold
  14. Vijay Shankar performance watch

    Has cashed in on every opportunity he got....good signs..great temperament
  15. The second string is poor and also only the 2nd string is playing without any main bowler not even one.
  16. Take on Shankar’s bowling today? His tight spell in the middle was an important factor
  17. Thakur has good a good temperament I will give him that
  18. Siraj has pace,Yorkers,variations but just can’t get 2 balls consistently or just gets overwhelmed when he gets hit..dare I say Thakur has nerves of steel based on how he comes back. Give Siraj a go in Odis maybe based on the fact we have invested in him and then reassess
  19. These Bangladeshis pissed of the Lankans who are home team and that too after a random victory and now have a virtual knock out against them...Loins will come at them hard now
  20. Damn bro...one convert at a time and I don’t even receive funds from Non profit organizations
  21. Sundar is the man of the match....Rohit man of the moment
  22. Gave Siraj the benefit in his first 2 games but if you don’t have the temperament you just don’t have it
  23. Headache>Stomach Pain>Genital Pain similarly Thakur>Unadkut>Siraj
