  1. saffers are doing their best to make the match "interesting". otherwise, they know that the revenues from TV, etc. will go down.

    Rayudu reported for suspect action

    hope that chuckdu's bowling can somehow get him out of the team.
  3. that seems about right, especially the latter duo.

    ODIS: Rohit vs Kohli

    VVS was an ordinary ODI player, but I still recall some very fine knocks he played against the ozzies. he was really fond of battering this team.

    it's changing, but slowly.

    Pakistan's ongoing cricket streaks

    saffers are bowling very loosely. almost as though they want Pakistani to get close to that target.
  7. the less better they perform, the more delusions become important.
  8. someone like katie ledecky could rip those so-called swimmers a new one.
  9. he is a trundler now. I am pretty sure his fastest balls these days are almost same in speed as afridi's fastest ball.

    1000th international victory for Australia

    like the idiot vizzy the crappy.
  11. bhuvi's regression has been so complete that I'd rather see even someone like rasikh salam in the 16. I think your team looks great but the absence of a part-time bowler for the 6th bowler slot is very problematic. we will have to see VK bowl his filth. since shaw is a specialist opener, I would be more tempted to have jadhav instead of him, and re-jig the batting order - this way, we get a reliable 6th bowler. krunal pandya is another possibility, but his batting feats are not that impressive in List A.

    Ranji trophy 2018-19

    I expect to see Vidarbha, UP, Karnataka and Gujarat make it.

    Preferred ODI WC19 11 / Squad

    experince does not count for much if all they do is tuk-tuk uselessly like karthik (and dhoni), or get out cheaply like rayudu. ideally the youngsters should have got longer run, but selectors and TM demonstrated zilch long-term planning for 2019 WC. we are just paying the price.
  14. I remember thommo was quite quick even at 35 (in 1985), even if not peak pace.

    damn. I was infected with greybeard-itis and had assumed he was there. ideally, would have liked to see more of both pant and kishan for ODIs. I suspect kishan might be marginally better for odis, although his higher list A avg is because of opening.

    Pakistan's ongoing cricket streaks

    nepal is better than them in some aspects of cricket too. lamichhane is a better leggie than yasir shah in shorter formats (and maybe in test too).
  17. this is assuming that bhuvi is the opening bowler, but shami is better than him. I think the choice is between pandya+chahal vs bhuvi+jaddu. In Eng, I would rate the latter as the better for batting (but with lower SR), and the bowling seems roughly the same.

    My instinct is to replace Pant will Gill. I believe that, even in this era, having one middle-order consolidator who still scores at a decent SR is very useful. Gill's overall List A SR is around 86, but it has actually increased since his first 10 matches or so (when it was in high 70s). As of late, I think it has been in the mid 90s, which is good enough.

    Ffs Get lost MSD!!

    didn't miss the point. just took the opportunity to mention how awesome hyenas are.

    unlikely selectors will choose proper back-up options for pacers in ODIs. looks like our 3rd pacer will be a huge problem. other option is to go with 2 spinners but chahal has struggled in eng in the past - not sure how he is bowling presently.
  21. his bowling is lower than even this duo. his batting seems more proper, but I don't think he can score at the very high SR possessed by these two.

    hyenas confronting the lion have teeth that can bite through bones, which lions cannot do. 9 times out of 10, I would back a group of aggressive hyenas to kill the lion (and chomp away until almost nothing remains).
