    Regardless of what happens in tomorrow's ODI

    The frustrating part is the talent coming thru the ranks is exemplary but they are rotting, I would love to see Sarfaraz, Prithvi, Hooda, Khaleel and other youngsters.
  2. A captain has to be crazy not to include Kuldeep in the test side, he is a wrist spinner so can turn the ball on most decks , plus he is a Chinaman bowler which is rare, he has skills, range and is mentally strong, I would choose him first in the team as a bowler, Ashwin to me is valuable in tests, he has been bowling well since SA, he bats very well and has the stats to show. Jadeja is a regular kinda bowler who doesn't turn much but is accurate and if the wkt ain't helping him he is not as effective, Personally for balance sake I would love to have K Yadav, Bumrah, Pandya,Bhuvi Ashwin if we play Pandya as an all rounder, Ashwin is as good and BK can bat..
  3. It has to be taken in a context and u can't make a person who is not born with an innate ability for that sport to go beyond a certain level. For example I think the longest un assisted dive record is around 6 mins or more, so we have a person who has this ncredible ability to hold his breath for 6 mins or more and an average human with do max 45 seconds, can all the training make the average guys do the same? No but maybe he can improve from being 45 to 120 seconds. Yes modern training and knowledge does allow one to improve to a greater exrtent but I don't see a Chahar with all his train become a Mavi or Nagarkotti. You have rhythm bowler, power bowlers and freak who have some level of elbow extension or hyper extension, fast twitch fibers along with a good action and hyper extension is the perfect recipe for me. Power bowlers gain pace later as they get stronger but they normally are not express and will be fast for a shorter time. Rhythm bowlers tend to loose pace fatser as they get older. The needs of a marathon runner, sprinter, wrestler and body type is entirely different, u should have the basic ingredient and then you can improve on that or some just hit the jackpot as far as genes, guys like Nagarkotti , Mavi who have the natural ability.

    Indian cricket preparing itself for failures

    Dhoni and Sreeni have damaged the credibility and structure of Indian cricket in a big way, it's scary what things are turning into now, it's like Indian cricket is held at ransom and in the arms of few.
  5. I dunno why u sorta make me think u are very conceited, it's always south versus the rest of India for you, also I dunno who or why you are trying to impress someone with your superior intelligence ,lol. Never argue with someone whose only good at one thing ,that is arguing lol.

    Indian cricket preparing itself for failures

    We need this coach, selectors kicked out and some good coach and selectors with balls, what has Raina done to deserve a recall, what has Dhoni done in last 4 years to keep his place, why are Shardul and Kaul persisted with despite being mediocre, why are Pant ,Kishan, Hooda, Mayank, Mandeep, being ignored. I don't think it's Kohli alone it's the coach, selectors ND nepotism, everyone is afraid to drop a dead horse Dhoni, once that rot is cleared rest will get better.
  7. We have a combination of factors which is making us a mediocre t20 and ODI side and future we will see this reflected in test as well Biggest cuplrits are the selectors who are afraid to make the right and obvious decision because they don't have balls. What is Dhoni doing in the ODI n T20 side for last three years, he should have been kicked out long time back.Why is the repeated failure Raina who has list his game and is afraid now given countless chance, why are selectors not making any tough calls at all, why do we don't see an influx of youth who are performing and have lot of promise but instead see mediocre has beens in the team. Kohli needs to get his priority right, respect n seniority should not be a priority over performance and objectivity, our T20 side should be youth based get in Pant ,Hooda, Mayank, Mandeep,Pacers who have potential. Why do we see mediocre trundlers making their way in the side, Kaul, Shardul are just first class material and nothing else, get in Rajpoot, Mavi, Siraj, Saini . Dhoni is being coached by the most selfish cricketer in history and he is doing quite well in being a greedy, selfish mofo, playing poor for last 4 years , I have lost all respect for Dhoni. We don't need this Sajdehs, and clique mentality, where is the logical , progressive thinking, selections, we need different captain for t20 with a younger side, our ODI style of play is taking us back to 1990.

    Mohammad Kaif retires from all forms of cricket

    Kaif the right kinda guy to get involved with the Indian team as coach, in some capacity, India A would be ideal, made the most of his talent but was doing well as a test bat when dropped.
  9. Siraj has made good progress, bowling better lengths and line, and he was bowling some unplayabale ones, good run-up and action he generates surprising pace, Reminds me a bit of M Sami, worth investing in for me , Nagarkotti, Kulwant, Aniket, Mavi have much more potential then Sharduk will ever have ,Rajpoot should be in test squad replacing Ishant for me.
  10. Alot of this **** is directed towards Kohli undeservedly is due to jealousy, one of the best batters in the game, future ATG, won us more games then Sachin, world beater attitude, just because he has a wife who is an actress, is above average looking for Indan and is confident . Yes he is not perfect but wants us to be a great team, he has his rough edge and is still not a mature captain but, that is a journey, for me his biggest problem is making emotional selection to playing 11 and the worst set of selectors to boot, Raina, Dhoni, Yuvi should be kicked out as off yesterday, let in Nagarkotti, Mavi, Shaw, Gill , Ishan, Pant as they r far better as investments and will pay of in long run then picking up has been
  11. Indian culture and mindset is about class and caste, yes he was apoor guy and seems to be bit like a show off, but he hasn't cheated, fixed matches, fought with his team mates or been indisciplined? I think Hardik has a lot of talent and is a natural, hopefully he will mature, he works very hard on his fitness , fielding ,yes his style comes of like a Ghati wannabe or a Patel wannabe but who cares, he has performed decently till date and you cannot hate on some one just based on that, look at Gayle , Barbie they for me are cringe worth with some Pakistani cricketers. Indians have this colonial mindset and infiriority complex and demure, subjugated guys even if selfish they prefer, guys like Dhoni, even Sachin for his personal records, same with Gavaskar. Kohli is the face of current gen, confident, fit, and not meek, I see a lot of uncle Tom's here in US who try to be Soo much like the whiteys but poor guys n girls look like Tribals fro Andaman , that comes from not having confidence in your self and denial
  12. Dhoni can't fire either on pitch or off it so Bhabhi has to find d some thing.
  13. Think India has lost it's touch with reality in ODI, also we choose to pick over the hill conservative play for the place in the side guys like Dhoni ,Raina, Yuvi.Our bowling will be a challenge for the Poms but batiing is conservative so we will know when it happens, but hoping to see likes of Dhoni, Raina gone forever after this one.
  14. Afridi and Kambli are both couple years older, growing up in Bombay and knowing people is school cricket circles, this is common knowledge

    Dhoni : a polarizing persona.

    The problem lies with the selectors n BCCI, why was he still the test captain n even in the test side after destroying our test cricket, selectors questioning him was fired but Dhoni He was a fantastic ODI player but his style of cricket n method also his skills have gone , he should have been kicked outta the odi n t20 side as well. Yes if he was someone like Dravid or Laxman and a true sportsperson he would've retired but then when he can get all the money in IPL it is tempting to drag on even if your batting has become a joke and your attitude selfish n self preservation.
