  1. How India eats - Veg & Non Veg

    In Hyderabad(Telangana in general), many people eat meat 3-4 times per week. AP is also similar but they prefer sea food being a coastal area. Rest of India has much lesser meat/non veg consumption, other than perhaps Kerala or North East.
  2. Even if this were true, its valid for a small percentage of India's population. Majority of India still lives in villages and small towns(whose voices dont get heard because they dont have education or access to social media) and they will have a different story to tell.
  3. China is a monster(in terms of growth). I dont think there has been any country in history which has such a huge population and yet grown as rapidly as China and managed to lift standard of living of majority of its population within such a short time. Hats off to Chinese leaders(and Chinese people in general) for pulling off this miracle.
  4. Let's all laugh at AUS's ODI performance outside AUS

    If you think Aus in 2011 had one of their worst ODI teams, you are even dumber than I thought. You are not even in the same ball park as being sensible. This thread is about Australia's recent performance in ODIs and not what happened in 2011 or 2015. Come back when you comprehend that simple piece of information, dumbass.

    Why are you talking about 2011 team in 2017 ? Is this your definition of "sensible" ?
  6. Let's all laugh at AUS's ODI performance outside AUS

    Most of their batsman are FTBs who only do well on flat, batting tracks at home. If there is even the slight bit of movement or turn, they wont score a run to save their lives. Their only chance from here on is if they get a batting track where 350+ is scored. I have seen enough of their batsmen to know what they are worth.
  7. To be fair, Dhawan is a much better player than Gambhir in foreign conditions. Dhawan has scored bucket loads of runs in the two CTs in England and WC in Australia. While Gambhir looks like a tailender in foreign conditions when facing the new ball. No comparison between the two of them really.
  8. Yes, he will be more winningest than the most winningest winning captain ever.
  9. Nope. He is much quicker now than when he started out. During his first series against Pak, he used to bowl 125-130 at best. Now he can clock 135 on average and sometimes hit 140 and over.
  10. Bhuvi used to swing the ball when he was bowling in 120s. After he increased his pace, he lost that swing even in conditions where some swing is available. He is managing to do well in ODIs because of his control and managing to stop runs but lost ability to strike with new ball because he lost his natural ability to swing the new ball. He is now bending his back a bit more and trying to hit the deck and become more of a seam bowler. Trade off is he could do well in SA but will become less effective in England.
  11. That's because you have seen him only in IPL where tracks are batting pitches and batsmen only look to slog. So he tends to bowl flat. He hasnt played enough ODIs (where he can look to attack more) to pass judgment.
  12. Cant jump to conclusions based on performance in 1 game. You have to look at the potential of the bowler. Chahal can also flight the ball and not just bowl flat.
  13. Axar will do alright on these slow, low, skiddy type surfaces. But in foreign conditions or even on batting surfaces, he will go for plenty.
  14. The comparison is between Chahal and Axar and not between Chahal and Kuldeep. I agree that Kuldeep should be picked first and then Chahal as the second spinner.
  15. Chahal just looks like a more wicket taking option even in IPL. Axar is picked more because of his batting and defensive bowling. Dont let the wickets in List A fool you. You can pick wickets when batsmen go after the bowlers in LOIs and not because the bowler prized out a wicket.
