  1. First let me take a moment to stand in awe and appreciate a fantastic effort from a young man...a 300 in his 3rd test even if this was against Bang/Zim it would have been a commendable effort leave alone one of the stronger sides in the world. Hope this innings gives him the confidence to reach greater heights and become a bigger match winner. I know timing of this thread is wrong and might get a lot of hate for this but do you really think that he is going to carry this on consistently? I am not saying he won't just my doubt. Can he sustain his form and momentum on a bouncy,green,seam-friendly,dustbowl kind of a track? Need to see more of him but yeah any one who hits a 300 is a gem and deserves his long rope but just get the feeling something is missing.
  2. Englishmen have absolutely no clue how to deal with him....Kuldeep Yadav will absolutely kill it in international cricket. We need to use him as a mystery spinner when we tour abroad. He will be a trump card. I think he is good real good..turn,bounce,variation and great cricketing awareness. Hope we don't over expose him....He is going to win us a lot of games and I will bet right now he will win us an overseas test in Non-Asian conditions.
  3. People complain about a lack of a bowling coach but we have one of the greatest bowlers of all time as our head coach,which is fair enough if we had to make an excuse. I just looked up the fielding coach and it says it is R.Sridhar? what the hell....and this guy seems to be around for a while...Fire him right now!!! I mean likes of Jadeja,Yadav,Rahane are all natural athletes so ground fielding is covered for the most part, but our catching is plunging into new depths and there is nothing that is making the fielding coach accountable. He needs to go right now I mean like NOW!!! Also his previous coaching credentials are fielding coach with Kings X1 Punjab which is probably the worst fielding side in IPL. No upside here...time for a new coach.
  4. Aus 120 Allout Ishant 6/28 India 108/1 Ishant Night watchman-56*
  5. It is a no brainer that Shami is overall more consistent and disciplined than Umesh. Pace wise too he is just marginally slower but where Umesh trumps Shami is in the fitness department. Shami has to be handled very carefully where as Umesh's fitness puts him ahead and playing more and more as he has shown will only keep making him better.
  6. I just want to understand what is the pecking order for batsmen in contention at this moment. No issues with a youngster like Iyer getting a shot though.
  7. WIll make a few quick bucks in IPL a la Irfan Pathan before totally vanishing from the scene
  8. Smith:Tell me the mantra for success in this series Dalai Lama:whispers- Om hum please no Rohiteyvachah: Om hum no Rohitevachahah: Ishu evam Drop e karuneyvachah: Ishu evam Drop e karunyevachah: Arthath/Meaning- Please pray to keep Rohit away and Please pray that Ishu is dropped if you want to achieve success
  9. Have a bad feeling about this game #nervous bear
  10. Smith:ICF posters have 100's of posts discussing me Dalai Lama- @zen and @Muloghonto have 1000's of posts discussing me. take that ya bitch. Drops Mic
  11. To be fair Bangladesh have been really good at home....beat Pak,India and South Africa. Pak has been getting owned in ODI's everywhere be it UAE(adopted home) or overseas or ICC tournaments....I am pretty sure India or Australia or South Africa or England will be given a run for their money 9 out of 10 times if they play the present Banglaes team in ODI's on their turf. WI are pathetic...Pak have been pathetic for a while.....As much immense joy I will get to see the Padosis play the qualifiers,I think the WI ODI team is pathetic. Hope to see an upset
  12. @cric_fan at least once instead of getting all defensive, why can't any muslim acknowledge that- yes there is a problem of radical islam..there are people from a school of thought from the same book spreading terrorist activities interpreting the Koran their way.....it is time muslims should acknowledge the problem Never seen anything of that nature ever...it is always the same crap that terrorists are not real muslims blah blah blah etc. Sure not all muslims are terrorists but most if not all terrorist activities in the world today happen due to radical islam.....before you go google searching and come up with jews did this,Hindus did that,christians did something else.....why can't for once the average muslim who is making a good living probably as such as yourself acknowledge this simple fact.
  13. So him being hopeful of Sammy taking up Islam is just random blabbering to the media? That shows 2 things either the public laps up such statements that a CEO of a popular brand is making these statements to increase good will or The CEO of a company can go ahead and make such random statements pertaining to religion Lol. Either ways doesn't do much for the image of Pakistan.
  14. Sorry if this is a stereotype but the stereotype is Bongs,along with Oriya people and Biharis are some of the hardest working people when they make a living outside their states and ironically the laziest in their own state. while Bihar and Orissa have always been backward due to poor administration and other logistical factors,Bengal has had the biggest free fall in how people live in their own region. This is attributed to communism which directly equates to being anti-religious. Now obviously the educated elite minority do not represent the entire truth of who gets elected and it obviously comes down to a mass vote but most intellectual elite atleast the ones who come in front of the media have traditionally been pro-left and pro-commies. Business communities like Marwaaris and Baniyaas from the north who have set up base in the south have probably migrated their during pre-british.Eg; in Hyderabad where most of them probably migrated there during Nizam time,so most of them have set up shops in old city areas where it is predominantly a muslim ghetto...they have one hand learnt to live in peace with them in times of peace but also have been the most vocal and taken initiatives in standing up to them in times of communal problems-Hence makes us feel like they are more pro-hindu
  15. I am pretty sure RSS had a role in Yogi's selection. anyways why is RSS involvement a bad thing? Sabka saath sabka vikas,no appeasement and nationalism are pretty much RSS mottos as well...unless this new thing about Modi being "secular-as per the Indian political definition" and RSS being the equivalent of Mullahs and Terrorist groups as often quoted by the media...RSS pick and Modi Choice are not 2 opposite ends of the spectrum,may be a minor difference in individual choice here and there.
  16. Because it stands for every stereotype and phobia we associate with Pakistan. A good and friendly guy like Sammy makes an impression and is being a good employee and an ambassador and all of a sudden he is persuaded to convert to Islam??? Javed Afridi is talking this up like he is making an effort to something great for the humanity. That is why we are kind of annoyed. Every time we think that maybe we should give the benefit of the doubt and maybe all Pakistanis are not the same,something like this comes up
  17. Hate Pak for obvious reasons-so self explanatory Bang/Srilanka-support them when they play Pak but is there a chance these 2 teams can lose when playing each other? want them to lose and lose badly every time.Hate them with passion...their fans annoy me and I wish they cry all the time,brings a smile to my face so may be for that I love them? Nah hate hate hate England-Hate these snooty fags......hate them with a passion...love to see them get embarrassed and thrashed. Aussies-Frickin convicts.....use the guise of playing hard to abuse...now cry wolf when teams give back to them.....biggest racist bastards....in fact South Africa at least had an obvious apartheid system back in the day but Aussies are undercover racists. Hate them Westindies- Don't get fooled now when you see the good ol caribbean cricketer just enjoying his game shtick...Even more racist towards the Indians than the white man. So racist that they conveniently omitted Kanhai and Kalicharan 2 of their finest bats from their documentaries to show how the black man got wronged. Also no team spirit despite talent and just fill the numbers these days. no pride.Hate them South Africa-Hated them during their racist days...now hate them for quota rule.Double hate. Zim/Afg/Ire and other minnows-Hate minnows....cricket is played to win,'not to put up a good fight'-* them New zelanad- bigger bigots than Aussies.....Racist thrash....play with team spirit or whatever who cares...not good enough...deserves a good bamboo up their bottoms.Hate them So yeah cannot be a neutral fan.Hate all of them trash...if you think I am filled with hate and a bitter man-Come at me brah-Bite me
  18. Grade A (Rs 2 crore): Virat Kohli-Deserved MS Dhoni-Should have been Grade B R Ashwin-Deserved Cheteshwar Pujara-Should be Grade B Ajinkya Rahane-Between A and B but fine with him getting A Ravindra Jadeja-Deserved M Vijay-Should be Grade B Grade B (Rs 1 crore): Rohit Sharma,-Should be Grade A KL Rahul-Deserved Bhuvneshwar Kumar-Deserved Mohammed Shami-Should be Grade A Ishant Sharma-Deserved Umesh Yadav-Between A and B but fine with him getting B Wriddhiman Saha-Should be Grade A Jasprit Bumrah-Deserved Yuvraj Singh-Should be Grade C Grade C (Rs 50 lakh): Shikhar Dhawan-Should be Grade B Ambati Rayudu-Between B and C but fine with him getting C Amit Mishra-Should be Grade B Manish Pandey-Deserved Axar Patel-Deserved Karun Nair-Deserved Hardik Pandya-Deserved Ashish Nehra-Not too much shelf life here,should have been out of a full time contract Kedar Jadhav-Should be Grade B Yuzvendra Chahal-Deserved Parthiv Patel-Waste of a contract,Kuldeep should have gotten a grade C contract Jayant Yadav-Deserved Mandeep Singh-Deserved Dhawal Kulkarni-Waste of a contract Shardul Thakur-Deserved Rishabh Pant-Deserved Out: Stuart Binny-Deserved Mohit Sharma-Deserved Varun Aaron-Should have got Grade C Karn Sharma,Harbhajan Singh, S Aravind-All 3 Deserved to be out Surprised to see no contract-The following should have gotten Grade C contract Kuldeep Yadav Shreyas Iyer Vijay Shankar One hot Rookie pace bowling prospect-just to groom him
  19. I guess I understand what happened with Rohit...usually when you are confused and have no clue human instinct tends to pick the option in the middle.....for example I gave you a multiple choice question with options A,B and C you randomly click B just for the heck of it. In Rohit's case,since his value is invaluable and cannot be measured in monetary terms,he was randomly picked to be part of the B grade list......not fair and repulsive decision but knowing the IQ of BCCI babus,understandable.
  20. Rohit Sharma grade b are u fking kidding me
  21. Ashwin breaking records needs a break and come back refreshed. I fear a burnout
  22. A group of explorers from Aus land visited the mythical land of India to search for the Beast known as the king...the Rozilla...unfortunately Rozilla is licking its wounds and biding its time. The Aussie explorers are having a good time so far but they don't know it yet...once the Rozilla is back known as god creature they will be subjected to absolute carnage. this real life scenario is the basis for movies such as godzilla and kong skull island. they are currently battling out creatures such as the giant water buffalo ummi and king ghidorah ishu. wait and watch out for Rozilla's return. this may sound lame just like theories of renowned scientist bill randa and his organization monarch but who is laughing now after the events of skull island.... trust me wait for the Rozilla
  23. Let me get 1 thing straight This is not a Jinx thread I see a lot of bravado around here as to how we will absolutely crush the Aussies etc. Yeah even I have been guilty of getting carried away.I feel that Aussies are the underdogs and have a lot of things against them...the obvious ones are They have an unsettled lineup. They just got crushed in Srilanka and by South Africa The extremely Poor Pakistani team might have shown them to be stronger than they actually are...hell even there they were vulnerable in a couple of sessions. Their wicket keeper is a below-average bat and a very poor keeper. Leave alone Gilchrist,he seems worse than Haddin of all people. They have 2-3 glorified part timers masquerading as spinners. They have some rookies in the side who have no clue what is in store for them in India. The coach,captaincy and strategies are pretty monotonous and robotic and not very out of the box Now let us look at their strengths Starc and Hazelwood are a dangerous pair. Hazelwood has accuracy,moves the ball of the seam,brains to set up the batsmen and a very decent pace at 135+...probably one of the complete fast bowlers in the world today. Mitchell Starc is special. He can take the pitch out of the equation with raw pace. Also very good with exploiting reverse-swing. I mean a good spell from these 2 with a very good 3rd seamer can win games alone for Aus on their day regardless of the pitch Dave Warner has the x factor...Here is a guy who can change games in a session....can play spin and has experience on these pitches...can mentally disintegrate opponents. This is the kind of player who can win matches on his own. Smith may not look it,but he is one of the most complete batsmen in the world right now.He is very good against spin and his unorthodox technique can catch teams and bowlers off-guard. He has done well in India before and so far he doesn't seem to have any real weakness. Lyon is underrated. The rookies might be all at sea but at the same time they will be unknown commodities and have no fear as they have nothing to lose. Their mental strength Their fielding as they will gobble up most half-chances. Previous defeats in SC might have them more prepared and alert. Stats are there,history books have it documented but regardless of what they tell you Aus can never be taken lightly.The problem is you need to crush the Aussies and never let them dominate because if it is a half-chance they will not let you in they will take it. While purely based on their team,Aussies winning the series is a long shot but I don't we will be absolutely crushing them.Set yourself up for some surprises.
  24. As I said not sold despite the 300. Need to be persisted with but as I said back then...hold your horses.
