  1. Wonder how many in ICF have faced Starc and hazelwood in Bangalore under a full house to comment that ... you are not convinced ... wonder how y’ll will feel if the same rules apply to you at your job ... 

    ppl should just STFU and appreciate when  any player does well and not moan about what he cannot do .... Sheryas is much better than anything that the BCCI has done in the past with the number 4 position .... for BCCI’s BS selection policy I think they have done ok... with Sheyas so far ...  

  2. Needs to work on fitness... lose weight and bulk up .. work on core ... increase 10 kms in pace become 135kmh bowler ... and then comeback ..

    hes got a slower one , needs a bouncer cutter ... he’s got natural swing .


    needs to to develop a square game , a mid wicket game and singles ... should look up to stokes ... 


    he is very very crucial for Indian cricket , Indian cricket doesn’t have medium batting all rounders. With this work he can fill in slot 4 which we all want him to do ...

  3. So the key for me is the moment Guptill released the ball, which initiate the throw , they had completed only one run:


    If the boundary results from an overthrow or from the wilful act of a fielder, the runs scored shall be any runs for penalties awarded to either side and the allowance for the boundary and the runs completed by the batsmen, together with the run in progress if they had already crossed at the instant of the throw or act.

    So it reads Runs Scored = 4 + num of times they crossed each other , when throw was initiated. 


    If you look at the video, Guptil releases the ball when had only crossed once.  So they Dharmasena did make a mistake and the only he could have corrected it if he had went to the third umpire. 


    It should have been 5 runs. 


    Question is how many umpires have the ability to run through the rule book and pick it out at that moment.

    6 wkt haul for ashwin in 2nd innings as well

    12th wkt in this game

    3rd consecutive 5th wkt haul

    Before we get on the high horses , did you guys see the pitch and opposition spinner did better . Samit Vaida had an 8' fer. 

    Ashwin needs to push himself when the pitch doesnt help him.

    Looks like the senior team score card... Openers set it up... Middle and late order fail...  Similarities in selection kinda throws a spot light on the overall selection process.... 


    Out national selection committee should reflect the intended team composition ( in a ideal world). 

    1. An Opener

    2. Wiki

    3. Spinner

    4. All rounder. 

    5. Pacer. 


    So if the captain of the team in wiki, the chief selection should be wiki selector. 


    They look at the player pool by function rather than region...
