    Opening with Goswami when chasing 350 lol
  2. Where are you from ?

    Coimbatore (TN) guy now working near Trivandrum (Kollam to be exact) , Kerala.
  3. MS Dhoni mega discussion thread

    Whichever way ,it will be decided by performances in IPL
  4. North eastern states to play Ranji Trophy next year

    Yes that would make so much sense. Tier system of 4 leagues with 10 team each.Can also introduce relegation and promotion as well.
  5. Ravi Ashwin won't be available for the ODI games against Australia

    Nice roundabout way to say Ashwin is dropped . Deservedly too.Need to stick with younger players.
  6. MS Dhoni mega discussion thread

    Awesome thread and even better gif that
  7. Anti-Defection Law: Death of democracy

    Yes having the party whip is Wong apart from when it comes to proving majority. But even a progressive democracy like Britain has it still. The more and more parties turn away from dictator leaders ,they will change. First thing needed is internal democracy in the parties .Only then this will be realistic .
  8. Is that some sort of parody account :lmao: Dhoni not a better batsman than Raina ?
  9. 3rd ODI - India vs Srilanka, Pallekele, 27th Aug

    He regularly delivered ever since he started opening .
  10. 3rd ODI - India vs Srilanka, Pallekele, 27th Aug

    Time to drop Rahul for Pandey next game . Pandey deserves a run after his A team form.
  11. 3rd ODI - India vs Srilanka, Pallekele, 27th Aug

    Despite all the nonsense criticism Rohit has actually been our best batsman in ODIs in tough conditions . Once again doing the job today when rest has fallen off.But according to Icf wisemen he is rubbish and should be dropped
  12. Bhuvneswar Kumar 20 matches 17 wickets at avg of 54

    He doesn't take wickets if it doesn't swing. Need to try new bowlers for ODIs where flat wickets are more common
  13. Finisher is back !!!

    Swamy watches cricket :lmao: Wonder what conspiracy theory he sees in there lol
  14. Rohit is Good but We will be better without him as well..

    Too much confusing of formats affecting clouding judgement of Rohit. Rohit shouldn't be in our test team.Or even in T20 team. But he is one of the first names in the odi team.
  15. India vs Srilanka , 5 match ODI series 1st ODI at Dambulla. Start time. : 1430 local (0900GMT) Telecast : Sony Six, Sony Six HD and Sony Ten 3. Sony Liv app will have live streaming . Weather : Expected to be cloudy, but fine, with temperatures reaching a high of around 31C during the day.Some late evening showers predicted ( source : Cricinfo ) Pitch : With a batting-friendly wicket on offer, 300-plus scores have been achieved twice at this venue this year. It shouldn't be any different for the opening game of the five-match series starting on Sunday. Showers are forecast late in the afternoon (Cricbuzz) MATCH PREVIEW : Going into the five-match series, starting on Sunday in Dambulla, Sri Lanka have plenty to play for. Upul Tharanga captained Sri Lanka have face to regain after being beaten by Zimbabwe and then smashed by India in the Test series. Additionally, they need two wins at least to qualify automatically for the 2019 World Cup. For India have a a squad brimming with abundance and confidence. Some of the Test regulars have left and the the MSK Prasad-led selection panel also decided to rest R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami. But that doesn't mean Sri Lanka can breathe easy as the ones coming in are able replacements, capable of winning matches on their own. In Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India have two quality seam options while Hardik Pandya can also pitch in. The spin department is exciting, with the presence of Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel and if this doesn't appear formidable for the hosts, wait for the batting unit. Rohit Sharma has returned to the ODI squad after being rested for the West Indies ODIs while KL Rahul and Manish Pandey are also back in the squad, having missed the Champions Trophy and the Caribbean tour due to injuries. With the presence of Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane and Kedar Jadhav, along with Pandya and MS Dhoni, captain Virat Kohli has plenty of options, leaving him and the team management with a happy headache. With a rotation policy being proposed by the selection panel to build a core for the World Cup in 2019, the ones presented with an opportunity in this series will be keen to make it count and cement their spots. Predicted XIs : India : Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah Srilanka : 1 Niroshan Dickwella (wk), 2 Danushka Gunathilaka, 3 Kusal Mendis, 4 Upul Tharanga (capt.), 5 Angelo Mathews, 6 Chamara Kapugedara, 7 Wanindu Hasaranga, 8 Thisara Perera, 9 Akila Dananjaya, 10 Lasith Malinga, 11 Dushmantha Chameera P.S. Nice stats preview from cricbuzz too. http://m.cricbuzz.com/cricket-news/96528/stats-indias-towering-presence-against-out-of-form-sri-lanka-india-tour-of-sri-lanka-odi-series-stats-preview
  16. Two things . First he bowls at a slower pace which means batsmen have to generate their own pace .So hitting down the ground is harder unless they have quick feet.So they often choose the cross batted shots which is easier to generate pace. But the advantage here for Jadhav is his action.Because of his slingly action he bowls at a low trajectory and so doesn't generate bounce and also harder to pick.So playing cross batted shots becomes lot more dangerous and brings wickets . Thats the major factor for his success.
  17. Axar over Kuldeep lol Regardless of how well Axar does well this match /series its a stupid decision. Makes u suspect whether the rumors about Kumble - Kohli down to Kuldeep selection more believable as well.
  18. Just standard PR stuff.
  19. BCCI Seeks Govt Nod for 2018 Asia Cup Involving Pakistan

  21. Even as the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre chants the one-nation mantra, the Congress-led government in Karnataka has constituted a nine member committee to design a 'state' flag — an identity symbol unique to the state — and submit a report on giving it legal sanctity. If such a flag does come into being, Karnataka will only be the second state in the country to officially have a flag of its own after Jammu & Kashmir, which enjoys special status under Article 370 of the Constitution. The Siddaramaiah government is mooting a separate flag for the state, coinciding with pro-Kannada voices denouncing the alleged imposition of Hindi in the state. Former Karnataka chief minister and Union minister D V Sadananda Gowda dismissed the move, saying, "India is one nation and there cannot be two flags in one country." http://m.timesofindia.com/india/karnataka-appoints-panel-to-design-state-flag-look-into-legal-sanctity/articleshow/59640799.cms?utm_source=toiandroidapp&utm_medium=others&utm_campaign=show
