  1. ICC considers alternative venues for 2021 Champions Trophy

    Don't really matter how much crowd is packed .Ground revenues are minute ,it's the TV revenue that's the big share of revenue .And the timing of matches in US is awful for Indian audience
  2. Tweet from @UPStatsman: Rohit Sharma's batting average of 11.45 in ODIs in South Africa - the lowest for any Indian batsman who has played atleast 10 innings in top-order (1-7) in any particular country.
  3. Nah Rahane should come in at 4. This pitch will suit him best.Good pace and bounce , short boundaries and not much turn either.
  4. Dhawan is seriously the best opener we have had since Sachin / Ganguly .Incredible numbers and always pulls out his best game for ICC tournaments.
  5. Yeah Sportskeeda as source And the Ankul Roy who was picked was the highest wicket taker in the tournament and batted at 7.
  6. ICC considers alternative venues for 2021 Champions Trophy

    The sole point of tournaments like CT is to generate money for ICC member countries.No broadcaster would bid if it's held in US considering the match timings would be midnight .
  7. ICC considers alternative venues for 2021 Champions Trophy

    They shouldn't.Bht countries like Srilanka and Bangladesh will be willing to give them so ICC prefer to shift to one of these countries that gives tax exemption.
  8. ICC considers alternative venues for 2021 Champions Trophy

    BCCI couldn't even get tax exempted for world T20 that happened 2 years ago.So very little chance they could get for a champions trophy.
  9. ICC considers alternative venues for 2021 Champions Trophy

    Actually yes.You seriously think ICC will happily loss 100-150 mil dollars so that they can host in India ? Even BCCI won't agree to that. FIFA actually asks for written guarantees from Govts for tax exemption before bids for world cups are submitted. ICC will definitely shift to anither country if we don't provide tax exemption.
  10. ICC considers alternative venues for 2021 Champions Trophy

    Can't complain.A tournament like Champions trophy neither has the prestige or bring any boast to tourism.So Govt is correct in its stance not to give any tax exemption. In a country like India where tax payment is a massive issue , there's no need to give tax exemption to these ICC tournaments to line pocket other countries. BCCI always says they are a private body and doesn't come under Sports ministry, which is fair enough.Then there is no need for Govt to give tax exemption to ICC tournaments either.Maybe if BCCI wants to host the tournaments, pay from their pocket instead of asking for tax benefits from Govt.
  11. That was awful from Jadhav Now we will struggle to get to 270
  12. Pandya's bowling in the 1st 2 ODIs

    Has any team won a world cup with just 5 specialist batsman ? The Aussies usually had Tom Moody / Lehman /Clarke/Haddin batting at 7 when they won the world cup. We had Raina at 7 who was the difference in both Q final and Semi in 2011. Srilanka had Hashanah Thilakaratne at 7 when they won in 1996 An extra batsman at 6&7 is more important than specialist 5th bowler and long tail in odis.That always makes the difference in winning big tournaments.
  13. Pandya's bowling in the 1st 2 ODIs

    Yes in the tournament he suddenly hit peak form as a bowler.But honestly leading into the tournament would you have said Yuvi is one of the top 5 bowlers in India ? Definitely not. Even if we take 2011 world cup in a vaccum, Yuvi was among our best bowler alongside Zaheer but our other 3 bowlers were no better than Pandya performance is now.Bhajji for ex had 9 wkts in 9 matches at an average of 40+ .It's nigh on impossible to have 5 quality bowlers who can take 1.5-2 wkts per match . I do agree Pandya needs to improve in both batting and bowling and he has a lot of scope to improve. Lance Klusner for me is the best odi all rounder since Kapil.Pandya should be looked at and developed as a similar player.A finisher who can consistently give 7-8 overs as fifth bowler. What I don't agree with he needs to pick up wickets at a better rate to justify his selection in the team.Wicket per match (Like Pandya has ) is pretty good for the 5th choice bowler.His most important attribute to the team is maintaing a strike rate of 120 and consistently giving team big finishes .
  14. Axar Patel for Pandya?3rd odi

    Still don't know why Axar is in the team.Basically a budget version of Jadeja . We have already on from Ashwin and Jadeja as spinners seeing wrist spin is the key for ODIs .So what's the point of another finger spinner as back up.Surely be looking for a other wrist spinner as back up.
  15. Pandya's bowling in the 1st 2 ODIs

    He is not going to bat at 5 regularly because we have better pure batsman at no.5 and Pandya role is finisher. Also he already gives us good bowling options .He regularly bowls 6-7 overs and on a good day gives you good 10 overs.Infact Pandya ratio of picking a wicket per innings is excellent for the fifth bowler. You are excepting India to play with 5 quality bowlers which we never have done .Not even our best teams neither did the best Aussie teams .Yuvi averaged nearly 40 and he was our fifth bowling option going into 2011 WC.And less said about our 5th bowling option Dinesh Mongia in 2003 WC the better. Hardik Pandya is arguably the 2nd best 5 bowler we have had in decades .Only Jadeja was better and his batting is miles behind Pandya particularly for a no7 bat.
