  1. 281 vs Australia , VVS Laxman in tests 175 vs Zimbabwe , Kapil Dev in ODIs 70(30) vs Australia , Yuvraj Singh in T20s Didn't think off it earlier but genuinely amazing .And I can't even think of Laxman or Kapil's knock being bettered anytime soon.
  2. Supreme Court Bans Diwali. Rofl Hindus, go fly a kite.

    What outrage ? Animal sacrifice is as much a Hindu practice as it is a Muslim practice.Only difference is the Animal sacrificed. Last time the Govt banned that in TN, it resulted in epic backlash . Good luck trying that ban overall India lmao.
  3. To put the Kapil knock into perspective, Kapil scored 175 and the next best score was 24 . Kapil's strike rate was 127 and the next best SR for India was 45.And all this coming after 4 for 9 in more or less knock out match in world cup. It's not only best innings in ODIs (by Indian atleast ) but one of the most the best superman / single handedly winning innings ever in any sport. Easily one of the most underrated sporting performances ever particularly if you take into account the lasting impact ,the knock and subsequent world cup win , it has had on Indian cricket and even India as a country.
  4. Dravid v Sanga - who was better test batsman?

    Dravid in England Sanga everywhere else.
  5. Pritvi Shaw and Washington Sundar both have a lot in common. Both Teenagers that has generated a lot of hype.Yet just playing their first Ranji season as regular . Sundar is 18 and Shaw is a younger and just 17. Also interestingly both are openers and can bowl off spin though obviously Sundar is much better bowler as of now. Obviously Rahul looks pretty much set as our test opener for next decade (injuries permitting ) , bit both Dhawan and Vijay are in 30s so realistically we will be looking at next generation of opener to partner Rahul atworst in next home season (12-18 months). So who do you thing will break into the test team first ?
  6. Sunder is a regular opener through out his career. Last season he was reserve opener for TN and didn't play much .

  8. Oh come on BCCI *facepalm*

    How does it stop HCA from installing a proper drainage facility like in most other stadiums in India ?
  9. Washington Sunder is a specialist opener. What are you even on about ?
  10. Yeah but Panchal Parhiv(as opener) or Prashant Chopra arent gonna break into the team anytime soon though.Mukund is ahead of them in the pecking order and he hardly gets any games . I was referring to 2-3 years down the line when both Shaw and Sundar will have had couple of seasons of Ranji season. It is basically whether Shah or Sundar can have 2 seasons of high scoring Ranji seasons and break into the team when we will be needing to replace Vijay and Dhawan down the line.
  11. KL Rahul must play as opner in LOI

    Don't confuse test and ODIs . Rohit was the MOS in West Indies tri series ,when there was plenty of swing on offer for ex.Rohit is excellent at seeing of the new ball whenever there is some assistance on offer for bowlers .Has done it plenty of times ,that's one major reason his record as opener is phenomenal.
  12. Seems Pant needs another Ranji season out of lime light.
  13. KL Rahul must play as opner in LOI

    No it's not obvious because his performance and stats say otherwise. If anything he is India's best batsman in helpful conditions for pace bowlers.
  14. KL Rahul must play as opner in LOI

    Who said Rohit is weak against swing in ODIs ?
  15. Mumbai batsmen rarely shine in ICC finals

    Mumbaikar in WC finals Gavaskar - 12 ball duck in 83 world cup final Sachin - 4(2) in 2003 final Sachin - 18 in 2011 world cup final Compare that with Delhiites Amarnath - MoM in world cup final Sehwag - 84 and top scorer in 03 final Gambhir - 97 and top scorer in 2011 final(Also top scored in 07 T20 WC final)
  16. Get Washington Sundar into Indian LOI team already

    He is an opener.Opened in junior cricket and also TNPL.Was reserve opener last season for TN Ranji team.
  17. Ravindra Jadeja deserves a Top 6 slot

    Jadeja has been doing a pretty good job at No.8/no.9 for India ever since his comeback.Averages 40+ with 7 fifties in 24 innings which is exceptional. No need to upset that balance by promoting Jadeja up the order.
  18. Get Washington Sundar into Indian LOI team already

    Let him first play a full season of Ranji cricket .Maybe a couple of seasons and learn the trade of opener. No need to rush him when we already have Dhawan and Vijay.
  19. Combined Indo Pak All Time ODI Team

    Sachin Dhawan Kohli Miandad Yuvi Dhoni Imran Kapil Akram Saqlain Kumble / Akthar
  20. Ranji Trophy 2017/18

    FYI Washington Sunder is an opener by trade. He batted in middle order because Vijay was playing last match.
  21. India's Fertility rate state by state

    The general thumb of rule is that if the Fertility rate is less that 2.1,then it reduces population growth . Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk

  23. Washington Sundar capped off a memorable match with career-best figures of 6 for 87 as India Red wrapped up a 163-run win over India Blue to lift the 2017-18 Duleep Trophy on the fourth day in Lucknow. It was Washington's second five-wicket haul of the match, coming on the back of 5 for 94 in Blue's first innings, and gave him a first-class-best match haul of 11 for 181. The wickets came in addition to a first-innings knock of 88, and 42 in the second that lifted Red from 58 for 4 and recover to 208, setting Blue an improbable 393 to win. http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8630/report/1118611/day/4/
  24. Cheteswar Pujara's overseas form

    Pujara issue is just not swing. He also struggles against Bounce Lyon generated last time.So Australia won't be easy.
