    BCCI needs to get it's act together with the ticketing. Tickets are sold only a week before and from random sites like insider.in Buying online ticket still requires standing in line for collecting tickets Insider.in email told us to collect it from gate 4. After 30 minutes in line some guy tells us insider tickets are to be collected from some other place and only ticketgenie ones are there at gate 3. So we had to stand in another stupid line. As a result we missed initial part and missed few overs all of which we were very keen to see given this historic occasion. In stadium experience is improving with better food vendors. Drainage is awesome. It was a lot of rain and lot of water on the ground and covers and we were not expecting so many overs later in day. Looked like end of day and probably would have been on most grounds You feel there is still mismanagement with ticketing with unreliable vendors being trusted.

    I had a great day at the ground today. Nice weather and some nice batting from Shawn and later Rahul and Vijay. The way dhawan took the attack to the spinners really broke the game. Was great to see lot of Afghanis in the ground supporting their team. Shahzad was the crowd favorite and people were really chanting his name and cheering his name and he was also obliging and signaling to them and dancing and joking around And yes it was a decent crowd for a working day.

    ESPN Cricinfo test XI in last 25 years

    yet another random all time XI. This is how Cricinfo keeps those clicks coming in lean season with fans trolling each other
  5. I am going to be there watching the first match ever for Afghanistan on first session first day!!
  6. What a great catch of his own bowling there. This guy is a complete all round cricketer. He has so much potential
  7. What is it with praising already established players. This culture makes their position undisputable. They need to perform less consistently than newbies. Yuvraj Singh has scored - 12(22), 4(4) and 14(17) so far looking totally horrible. But one 30(15) in a winning cause and it will be back to Yuvi is class and he will be irreplaceable. Questioning legends does not mean we do not value their past contributions. Yuvraj Singh has played big role in winning us two world cups but it is also true that he has massively underperformed at some big stages. Similarly Dhoni has no equal but it is a reality that he struggles to hit out against really good attacks.

    Mumbai Indians Fan Club - 2018

    Krunal Pandya is so much better than Hardik in batting. Guy plays some really great shots. He has really been bowling better also
  9. Otherwise they would win comfortably
  10. Imagine guy like Avesh on fast bouncy track. He would have killed Elgar in Wanderers
  11. Well one of those is not keeping his chaddis up for sure

    Indian Wicket Keepers doing well

    So we potentially can make a whole batting order out of only Keepers 1. Rahul 2. Kishan 3. Samson 4. Karthik 5. Pant 6. Dhoni Good times I would say and hopefully put enough heat on Dhoni to pick up his game or be rested to give trial to the new names
  13. Yes his previous over was a thing of beauty and he was touching 147. I think modern bowling has become sometimes too fancy with bowlers trying to get in too many variations. They think if couple of balls work then next one has to be different just for variety sake. There seems to be some thinking that sometimes test match lines (short of length) work to lower order batsmen. That's what cost him all those fours. I would not blame him except for not correcting his no ball problem (that is something fully in his control). All the bowlers are likely to get hit once in a while. As long as he learns from that he is good.
  14. Rahul could have been retained. That way they would have two top Indian XI players in team instead of fillers like Sarfaraz or Mandeep who are ok but not ones who will win you tournaments. Anyway I am just happy he is doing so well and want him to really develop as all round player for India. We need some depth in our batting
