  1. Why is the BCCI suddenly become so inclined towards T20Is .. weren't they actually trying to play less IT20s so as to protect the IPL.. I really don't understand the logic behind playing 3 T20s against West Indies and Zimbabwe rather than playing ODIs?? Also 5 T20Is series in NZ is an overkill if you take my opinion.. also we are building up to a ODI world cup and not a WT20 in 2019.. this is ridiculous scheduling and most probably done keeping in mind the broadcasters interests.. I would really like someone with a spine in the BCCI to just stand up and change this ridiculous love for T20Is
  2. Absolutely.. cane here to post this but found it in your post.. I think from all the cricket I have seen Alan Mullally had the best bowling action for a fast bowler.. If you talked about simple and rhythmic, I would rate Shaun Pollock and when it comes to being compact, I don't think there was anyone better than Chaminda Vass. Other notable names include Shoaib Akhtar, Heath Streak, Olonga, Pedro Collins and Andrew Caddick
  3. Robotic Umpiring: The Future http://www.theroar.com.au/2018/01/02/we-have-the-technology-robotic-umpiring-is-crickets-future/ So this is apparently coming.. should have for seen this.. the future will be robot players playing the game too and will be a battle between the best software developers a country can produce.. all looking like a game changing plan by the icc to make the USA a leading cricket team
  4. I believe we have a good chance of getting at least one victory in South Africa and a series win in England.. Australia will be a tough nut to crack but if our batters remain in form we should be able to draw the series.. let's hope our batting line up delivers consistently in SA as that will give the bowlers a cushion and also confidence to go all out.
  5. I have been having a feeling that both Dhawan and Rohit are really determined to prove themselves overseas in this round of tours... They have shone the desire to fight it out and are keen to permanently keep their slots in the side as they would know that failure here and in england would literally end their test careers for good. I have high doubts on Rahane's form and his confidence.. I do hope he comes through but the lad should never again play a home test.. I am sure chepu will do better than last time but I doubt he can make big 100s given he has limited strokes against seamers and has usually cashed in on spinners for all his runs in home tests after blocking out the fast bowlers. VK is in a separate mold and is looking to compete against Smith and hence will be looking to cash in. Lets hope our bowlers stand up and make something out of the series like Sreesanth and Zaheer did back in 2006

    IPL now has window in ICC Future Tours Programme

    So, by any chance anyone here knows details of all series India is supposed to play according to the proposed FTP?? I have been hearing a lot of comments that they have kept gaps to accommodate Pakistan games if government agrees and this looks like a bad idea as we all know that is not going to happen anytime soon.. we should ideally look to give some games to the newbies or even zimboks and bengalis during this time and help them gain valuable experience..Heck even a series against the dutch won't be so much of a bad idea.. this will also be taking further the claims of Mr. Johri about bcci helping spread the game with nothing but one test against Afghanistan. What do you guys think??

    India Tour Of South Africa Cut Short

    Among all things written here, no one has even given a look at the original FTP (link below) drafted in 2014 and supposed to last till 2019 .. This FTP says that SRL was supposed to tour SAF first and play the boxing day and new year test and India was only supposed to tour SAF in the 2nd week of JAN after playing PAK at home ... India basically just replaced the PAK series with SRL whom the selfish and greedy SAF rejected. However, Mr. Lorgat and CSA never took approval of BCCI to prepone the tour and announced the schedule which was rejected by BCCI and very rightly so. http://p.imgci.com/db/DOWNLOAD/0000/0045/ftp_2015_2019.pdf

    What next for India?

    Ideally the FTP says we should be going to WI for ODIs and T20s followed by a trip to zimbabwe again ... Then we are scheduled to play a full series in SRL before hosting AUS for ODIs ... That is supposed to be followed up with a series against PAK after which we should go to SAF but since the PAK series may not happen and the SAFFERS have cancelled their plans to host SRL, we may end up going there sooner than later ... We are then supposed to host SRL for a full series in India which may be cut short to accommodate the Nidahas trophy which was announced recently. So, basically the only good series to look forward to next season is our tour of SAF.
  9. How is the pitch playing guys?? Haven't been able to watch the game at all ... just worried cook and root might be aiming big ones here. do you guys think there is any turn for our spinners here??
