    PCB's case against BCCI dismissed by ICC

    Still won't matter to corrupt officials of PCB who already have their pockets filled now.
  3. Leaving out captaincy, just as wk-bat in TESTS only Dhoni 90 matches 4875 runs 38.1 avg 224 HS 6 100s Rahim Matches 65 Runs 3962 Avg 35.62 HS 219 100s 6 How are their keeping skills in longer format? Rahim plays weak oppositions more, but then he didn't have cushion of strong batting either.
  4. He is not your strike bowler who can average sub-25. He won't run through sides on greent tops like others. But he gives 100% in bowling and remains consistent even on flat tracks. Bowls 130-135 well directed short balls and gets important wickets when pitch isn't helping. Accuracy, fitness, stamina and commitment. Type of player which captains would want in their side.

    PCB's case against BCCI dismissed by ICC

    Don't think they are dumb and couldn't see it coming. It was actually win win scenario for PCB official. Riding on emotions, they were able to set high budget for the case and made personal gains from it. Moreover they knew that even if they lose they will have public support, so it's a good PR exercise too. Only losers are BCCI who have to pay for legal expenses. But then it's settled the matter once for all, which is good for the board.

    Neil Wagner is such a great asset for the bowling unit

    Accuracy always works. His bouncers are well directed and he doesn't give away freebies.
  7. Great achievement. They had drawn series in WI in 2015. Lost to Pakistan in UAE and NZ.
  8. England won in Aus in 2010. 2009 was home series for England. Those were time of Ashes overload.
  9. Batting averages in test cricket each year. If England's contribution to the batting average is removed, overall average reduces to 30.43 which is certainly low. England's average has been 59.16 this year, much higher than their averages in previous years. It's not surprise after they had to face really poor bowling attacks of India and SL. There has been only 1 500+ inning by all teams (except England) and 10 400-499 innings. Year Teams Mat 500+ % 400+ % year 2002 10 54 19 35.19 38 70.37 year 2003 10 44 18 40.91 31 70.45 year 2004 10 51 23 45.10 38 74.51 year 2005 11 49 13 26.53 32 65.31 year 2006 9 46 17 36.96 24 52.17 year 2007 9 31 11 35.48 21 67.74 year 2008 8 47 10 21.28 26 55.32 year 2009 9 41 15 36.59 30 73.17 year 2010 9 43 18 41.86 30 69.77 year 2011 10 29 5 17.24 14 48.28

  11. On one hand you have teams believing when they have 48 to defend for 7 wickets to put their heart in bowling effort and on other hand you have losers who feel that everyone is failing to it's ok. How will a team win if you start with such mentality?
  12. He doesn't feel entitled. He misses playing ODIs and rightly so. Dunno what's wrong in that. Every player should miss the formats they don't play. If they don't have ability, they just move on. But that doesn't stop them from being disappointed about it. It doesn't become easier when you see all types of hacks playing the game and you're not selected.

  13. Karun Nair scored triple century. Struggled in 4 innings, got dropped for Rahane who went missing on spinning tracks. KL Rahul scored 61, 89 and 4 only to be dropped from first match of Nidahas trophy. Bhuvneswar Kumar took 4 wickets in first test in SA and was dropped from 2nd test. Cheteswar Pujara scored a match winning half century on tough pitch in 3rd test in SA and was dropped from 1st test in England (a test where we needed someone to just stay there for an hour or so). Later he was proved to be 2nd best batsman of series.
  14. They lost one match in absence of Curran.
  15. Next will be Hanuma Vihari. After showing grit in his debut test, he will make way for Rohit Sharma.

  18. Back in 2003 when SA selector said that that WC squad wasn't best one, he was forced to apologise as his statement directly meant that he failed to do his job. Now if coach feels that it is ok for team to lose as others are losing then why shouldn't he be sacked?
  19. Every coach is paid lower, why pay higher to Indian coach? Cut down his salary to less than half of what he is getting now and then his statement will make sense.
  20. That was most pathetic thing about 2012 series. We won first test at Amhedabad on a slow turner which suited our batsmen while giving bit edge to our spinners. But ego of our captain led him criticize the pitch and ask for rank turner, with 0 idea of batting and bowling abilities. Once we lost the series, they went back to dead track at Nagpur where nothing happened at all. So much for being man manager, and super strategist.
  21. Which decade is current one? 2010s started from 01 Jan 2010, not 2011.
