  1. Do you want Sri Lanka to whitewash your team in every series ?

    Worst selection for CWC2019

    This is a tough one. I want to select multiple options.
  3. In every post loss rant, they never forget to mention Imran Khan and what he would have done as captain. The guy retired close to 30 years ago. Get over it already.
  4. 'World Cup hat-tricks are rare, just bowl a yorker. This is your chance." Shami should have replied "No sh!t, Sherlock"
  5. Batting woes are largely due to the idiot selectors who messed up by not trying options for No.4, opener slot and even 5 and 6. Tried to stick with a small group and only kept giving them chances. Irrespective of result, heads need to roll for these blunders. Shreyas Iyer, Mayank Agarwal, Shaw, Gill should have been given more chances. Pant should have been first choice but sent as replacement for Dhawan. They have no clue what they are doing.

    Hardik Pandya Celebrations

    This is "Karke aaya" in sign language.
  7. Pak managed to win against Eng. SA didnt even do that and they lost against BD as well. Pak losing to India, Australia was more or less expected. To me, SA seem like they are mentally down and low spirited. It could be a good contest though.
  8. SA is in such a bad space mentally that I dont think they have a chance against Pak or any other side right now. They have the team but seem completely out of sorts.

    Mental strength of our players.

    Bowling effort was great. Its never easy under pressure to defend a much below par score against a weaker side and that too in WC. Most bowling sides from India in the past wouldnt have won the game. Honestly Indian batsmen messed up in last 10 overs and didnt know how to handle Afg spinners who used the conditions well.
  10. Do some of the clueless morons in this forum realize we cant replace Jadhav or Shankar with a bowler. We already have 5 bowlers, 6th bowler who can bat a bit like Jadeja will only lengthen the tail and he wont get to bowl many overs anyway. IMO if anyone has to go, it has to be Shankar in place of a batsman like DK or Pant because Shankar is not bowling anyway. Kuldeep is a strike bowler and teams are still not sure how to play against him and choosing the safe route by taking singles. Granted he could have an off day but he could provide the breakthroughs in the middle overs and win the game for you.

    Can't have jadav,dhoni and shankar together

    50 odd runs in last 10 overs with 6 wickets in hand against Afghanistan is a poor effort no matter how you spin it. It was not a land mine of a pitch by any means, a bit slow perhaps but nothing alarming.

    India not favourites to win

    It may have got wickets but it becomes predictable when you overdo it which was what Indian seamers did. Because target was low, they were happy to let those bouncers go and didnt get out and sometimes they expected the short delivery and played the pull and scored boundaries. If Indian seamers had varied the pace lot more, it would have been difficult to score on this slow track.

    Their spinners bowled wicket to wicket and didnt try too much, even seamers bowled more slower deliveries. Pandya over did the bouncers in the middle overs and that made him predictable. When you bowl cutters on this wicket, it was more difficult to time the ball and harder to hit. It was also bouncing awkwardly on occasions.

    Jadhav has done well, has one of the best strike rates in ODIs and quite consistent. Issue is with his fitness and has been in and out of the side and therefore not able to settle. Shankar is not ready for international cricket IMO. The bloke got lucky on account of a couple of performances and TM thought he can be an all rounder option.

    Aus and Eng have batting depth and good bowlers as well. They got most of the bases covered and are favs to win IMO.

    Indian batting has largely depended on top 3 a bit too much. Couldnt find a solid No 4. Now with Dhawan out injured and Dhoni not at his best, batting obviously looks shaky. When top 3 and bowling doesnt click, we will struggle against Aus, Eng or even NZ.
  17. If Nabi doesnt get out quickly, Afg will wrap this up. Bumrah and Shami need to bowl more slower deliveries.
  18. I knew Rashid will fancy his chances against Chahal and that would get him out.
  19. How the f did India manage to score only 50 runs in last 10 overs with 6 wickets in hand against Afghanistan of all teams ? No matter the pitch, that was a poor effort.
  20. I think this is a good move to bowl Chahal against Rashid
  21. Bowlers should have used more variety, overdid the bouncers. Gave some easy runs to Afg batsmen.
  22. Indian bowlers are overdoing the short delivery, should bowl more slower deliveries because the bounce and pace is a bit uneven. Short pitch bowling is becoming predictable.

    Shikhar Dhawan Ruled out of the World Cup

    This means Shankar will get more game time. Shankar against Warner, Gayle or Buttler will be a blood bath.
