    Chahar has not displayed any ability to bowl with the older ball or when the ball is not swinging.

     

    In ODIs, it won't be possible to bowl more than 6 overs with the newish ball.

    We already have two quality death bowlers in Bhuvi and Bumrah.However Bhuvi ability to take wickets in power play overs have declined badly.

     

    With the World Cup in England we need a swing bowler who can tak regular wickets upfront .The inability to take wickets at the top one of the major reasons Pakistan hammered us CT final.

     

    Umesh and Chahar have been our two bets power play bowlers in IPL this season.One of them is a must for ODI/T20 team.The other can be back up.

    Dhoni not batting up the order,Sandeep and Kaul’s Pies,Dhawan’s batting,Rashid Khan looking off color...something was definitely off

    I always said this our batting always matched up great against SRH.Thats why our record over the years have been exceptional against SRH.We are basically the kryptonite for SRH bowling.

     

    SRH strength is disciplined bowling by seamers and spin.

     

    CSK are the best batters of spin.Remember we picked a team to play on turning tracks on Chennai so batting well against spin.Raina and Rayadu(Jadhav as well) are two of tHe best hitters against spin and has handled Rashid Khan exceptionally well in the past.Raina has like 200+ SR against Rashid and Rayadu average like 50+ .

     

    And our batsmen (Raina Watson Rayadu Dhoni ) are all great at hitting good length delivers and Yorkers. Most of them struggle against real pace and SRH doesnt have that .Not even a variation of left arm seam.Just same 120-130+ seam bowling without any variation. 

     

    And finally where SRH have done best in IPL is Bhuvi at the death with his Yorkers. He is one of the few bowlers who doesn't go for much change ups at death and nails the Yorkers time and again.Problem is Dhoni is one of the few (whether u hate to admit or not) best at hitting Yorkers at death.Thats why he has such hold over Bhuvi and Williamson is scared of bowling at death against CSK which always screws up your game plan.

    As long as he’s not leading his team to match Fixing ban for 2 years, he’s ok. He may fail to get his team qualify or being completely out of form, atleast he’s not got his team banned for fixing matches...

     

    He’s won enough trophies and with dignity. His team is unblemished and has a home ground too of it’s own... nice.gif

    You would expect better from a Mod.

     

    One of the first points in the guidelines the home page of ICF is shouldn't throw wrong allegations on players and here we have a moderator doing it .

     

    But shouldnt be surprised I suppose.

    I agree, KXIP is as good as gone, I want them to beat CSK just for the heck of it and go out head held high.

    If we all agree to dump MI, by wishing DD to do a 'kiss of death' job on MI, we can keep them out this IPL.

    Most likely SRH, CSK, RCB, KKR will go. Replace KKR with MI, if MI can muster to win against their bogeyman.

     

    RCB beats KKR/MI 

    CSK beats SRH

    RCB beats SRH

    and then 

    :rcb: beats :csk: 

     

    Magandu ESCN .. Ee Sala Cup Namde!  and Ee Sala Cauvery Namde!

     

     

    Even if we  play U18s RCB will still choke against CSK.

     

    RCB beating CSK in a final :lmao:


  7. they are not seriously against IPL .. both are doing some lip service
    some partymen said that they wont be responsible if snakes are thrown inside the stadium:rotfl: 
    Every politician is the same when it comes to cauvery .

    Having worked in Tanjore area , seen all the political stuff that goes on , all these dramabazzi are to gain public attention nothing to help farmers

    Cummins has had a long history of back troubles but **there is hope at Cricket Australia that the move to pull him out of the IPL is largely precautionary.**

    The 24-year-old may now be in doubt for Australia’s one-day tour of England in June but medical staff are hopeful scans will indicate this latest setback is not long-term.

    Australia’s next Test series isn’t until October against Pakistan in the UAE and then the next big assignment is India in the home summer.

    Since playing his debut Test match way back in 2011, it wasn’t until last year that Cummins made his long-awaited return to the baggy green.

    From there he played 13 straight Test matches, including nine consecutive Tests over an arduous summer.

    Cricket Australia officials privately didn’t think Cummins would get through a full Ashes summer and were buoyed by the strength of his body.

    Cummins was by far the standout player for Australia on a disappointing tour of South Africa and stepped up in a time of crisis with some match-changing spells.

    The NSW star has even been projected as a potential vice-captaincy option for Australia following the leadership vacuum caused by suspensions to Steve Smith and David Warner.

    It’s understood Cummins has been withdrawn from the IPL to prioritise his Australian future.

    Australia can ill-afford to lose Cummins for a long period, although they may feel a one-day series in England in June is not worth the risk.

    Mitchell Starc had already been ruled out of the IPL with a leg injury and Mitchell Marsh has also been sidelined as he awaits ankle surgery.

    With Smith and Warner gone, Australia need to make sure they can keep their ace bowling attack on the park.

    Seriously tough for these fast bowlers.

    Heard Mumbai Shitians are also after him as Cummins replacement....But looks like CSK has money to shell out for him and hopefully will get him

    This guy can play the role of Albie morkel of old team...can hit big sixes lower down and looks decent batsman to spin as well.

    Yeah Mumbai were also looking for him (acc to evening standard) but we have now completed the signing.

    Stupid signing. They need an Indian player to replace Jadhav.

    Lol u completely missed the reasoning  .We are bringing in Willey as Jadhav because of the price tag.As Santner was just picked for 50 lakhs and Willey base price is 2 crores.

     

    Whereas any Local Indian left in the auction won’t have a base price of more than 50 lakhs.So we can bring them as Santner replacement.

     

    Nothing stupid in this

    Now that Kedar Jadhav and Santner are out...lot of room to work out mid season replacement plus saved on lot of money...

     

    1 Indian and 1 foreign player can be picked...

    Would like David Willey or Aiden Markram play here...even Ronchi or Guptill is fine
