  1. Mishra looks so mediocre in test n having played so much cricket he has not worked out why . Main reason is his slowish pace n more because he delivers the ball from a very high arm so he does not get the drift n dip which is a leggies main weapon. So legspinner is an art n can bamboozle batters on most tracks a good leggie can because, they get more turn then finger spinners also have quite a few variations mainly googlies, leggies, top spin, cross seam quick one, then the one from front of the arm which is quick , also most leggies who are successful are mostly bowlers who bowl a bit at an angle away from the body and this slinging arm rotation gives the ball the necessary extra turn, dip n drift, Mishra has never learnt the art of doing that and also using the crease so he looks mediocre.

    Guess who gets dropped

    Shami is one Bowler who bowls mid 140 to low 130 all day so where is the question here about stamina, lol , also he just had one serious injury till date. Infact it is Bhuvi who is a medium pacer who has stamina issues n just bowls first few overs at mid 130 S then goes to low 120s.
  3. Two players for sure Virat nnKumble need to get over to make a good test side is looser Mishra, as he is useless n BK as he is not effective in 85% of the games per his bowling. Need to get in K Yadav or Chahal, Gopal, Quadri for leggie n for BK , Pandya, Aniket, Nathu, Sangwan would be a better choice.

    Bombay Track was ok not bad, also it's good for BK he is played selectively as a track like Chepauk would make him look like a part timer, it's wise from Kohli n Mumble not to make same mistake again as Bombay also few games on normal tracks would ultimately make him look bad n he would be dropped from the squad .

    Rkt the problem with BK is his utility how does a captain use him if conditions are not tailor made for seamers he is pedestrian more like Binny, Madan Lal, after first 12 overs what does a captain expect from Bhuvi? Also on 80% track even first spell he look mediocre if the pitch is not assisting pacers extremely, he cannot be effective with semi old ball with his limited pace n skills, as ball won't seam n with old ball he cannot be effective bowling at 127 K even if the ball reverses. His first spell is about 132 K to 137 K then he slows down to 130 to 127 K on ave, he is not fit enough to even keep bowling at his slowish pace n then bowls at Ganguly pace, so captain is handicapped.Why would a captain play a dead weight in 80% conditions?
  6. Like most Indians have a colonial hangover they also seem to have a trundler hangover, when they finally have a world-class fast bowler in their ranks, they up a trundler who is a one trick pony, he would not even make in Aus, Eng, SA B side, the only reason BK would play more test in any decent cricket playing country would be if he ave 45 with the bat, even Stokes n Woakes who R genuine allrounders are far better proper bowlers then BK who can only swing the ball when new n just try pitch it up n expect a Nick with no other ways of getting a batter out, and bowling 127 K in test after first spell.

    Why Dhoni is not playing Ranji Trophy...

    Personally I have never tried to be personal or call poster names, so if some one is doing that on logical discussions we know who R the loosers here, n Viper is on my ignore list so I don't bother, other guys I have nothing against any fan or player, but it's about the team not idolatry here. A ageing failing player who has lost his hitting ability, can't rotate runs looks dodgy and S/R is poor and won't play any matches to stay match fit, for people who equate fitness to match fitness haven't played or understand the game.Match fitness cannot be achieved in the gym or nets, it has to be don't playing cricket wether county, some IPl like league, domestic Ranji, if not the 50 over format. A player is selected and stays valid for selection only if he takes part in countries domestic competition n that is for any one, Kp played domestic until he was snubbed. My posts R thread are not personal in nature but based on their game not their personal lives. Loosers post about some players wife or lack of virility or something below their belt, every plYer who plays is open to be discussed n debated about so if it gets to you , you'll don't need to check the post or thread like I ignores the gnats post on ICF.

    Is BK a viable test option

    BK has been discussed here a lot and with some posters having the faith n believe that he can be India's match winner in test cricket. To me he cannot be a match winner or a second bowler in most conditions except when it is seaming and also mostly when the ball is newish and that is very limiting. Yes we can take him to Eng and SA and he can play as a third seamer in some tests where it is alot in favour of seamers in that particular track only. Why can BK not be a effective bowler n most obvious reason is his lack of pace, being M/F and bowling initially at 130 to 137 in test and then his ave speed boarding at 125 to 132 K is not good enough to hurry batsmen and for all his skills even if he manages to reverse or seam the semi new ball he is too slow to be effective.So does a captain have an option like he would when Shami or Umesh is playing to bowl him at any time of the day and on any track and expect a wkt n the answer is no.

    Is BK a viable test option

    But if Umesh was selectively plYed on seaming tracks? One game he played even on decent Bombay Track, he look mediocre!

    Is BK a viable test option

    You are partially right, but why should we have the minnow mentality, it's not that we don't have talent but, talent needs to be supported and selected. We finally have Virat n he supports fast bowlers, we have a larger pool of bowlers now n all we need to do is be pro active n fast one more bowler of Shami capability, the problem with BK is his limitations.

    So glad that England does not have the DRS excuse

    On the contrary DRS if used properly our spinners will gain from it, lbw comes into picture largely also batters have to change their approach accordingly now
  14. Is he disabled? Phew batsmen would be confused lol
  15. Winning is a primary objective, drawing a game is salvaging a series or a face saving one

    Is it time for MSD to stand down?

    It ain't my problem if you can't handle the truth.

    Is it time for MSD to stand down?

    I don't mean you but Viper, n I don't know u so? I am just posting the obvious, Dhoni is a scavenger, who under Srini had set the rot, Indian team had become a butt of joke with power mouse statement coming from Gavaskar himself, Virat is someone who prides on his team's performance while Dhoni just killed the cow n destroyed our test team n now in latter stages the ODi team.

    Is it time for MSD to stand down?

    I don't feed trolls
  19. Bowlers hunt in pairs, the genius of Ashwins and the left right pairing with Jadeja and the relentlessness of them both specially at home makes them effectively. Jadeja looks like is exploring his bowling a bit more n under Ashwin I see him evolving, an occasional flighted on and a seam up delivery and few things he can pick to be viable away from home to buy wkts regularly.
  20. We R being pragmatic n not blind worshippers, Dhonis batting and performance has been on wane for 4 years now in ODI n test he was never good , and a horrible test capt, you would expect performance n accountability from a professional n sports body, Dhoni has been loosing for last 2 years Al let everything n Virat winning everything ,so why stick with a Mr process looser.
  21. MCcricket

    Is it time for MSD to stand down?

    Dhoni has lost his game n ability n not form, he had a unorthodox game based on good eye n not much technique, he has lost his game n not his form n that won't come back.
  22. MCcricket

    Why Dhoni is not playing Ranji Trophy...

    We have odi games after test n you think he should not have match practise, a player already on a decline not being able to hold a bat these days n he won't even try ?
  23. Any sport especially a professional one is played to win, would u be hired by a multi national if you believe we will just learn but not sure we will grow our market share or be number one. Yes goals should be realistic, we don't expect a minnow to be a world number 1 or go to Aus n white wash them, but a captain has to be a winner n have pride in his n teams performance n Dhoni doesn't care n that's a shame.
  24. MCcricket

    Is it time for MSD to stand down?

    Seeing where Virat has taken the test team, n if Dhoni has any respect and cares for India n its cricket he should step down n retire coz he has hurt his team bad enough for last 4 years test n odi, causing more n more damage, let in Virat as ODI Capt n lets start rebuilding under a winner then the looser Mr PROCESS.
  25. Here again under Virat when he was handed the test captaincy with team in disarray n loosing and new guys he makes them into champions, what a slap on the face of Mr PROCESS and no results
