  1. Kagiso Rabada [100 test wickets]

    Pollock fell off in the later parts of his career. Yes, in India, reverse swing pacers do well.
  2. herath derailing Pak as usual.
  3. Kagiso Rabada [100 test wickets]

    right. most SC pacers were excellent in SC too. Two W's, Srinath, etc. It always surprised me how some Indian pacers did ordinarily on pace-friendly pitches and vice versa.
  4. Behrendorff - left arm talent

    anyone is better than boland.
  5. Kuldeep Yadav vs Ashwin Ravichandran in ODIs

    let's hope so.
  6. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    cozier was a great ambassador of WI cricket, but he is overly biased in favour of WI.
  7. that's a good assessment of the situation
  8. Kagiso Rabada [100 test wickets]

    mcGrath had a decent record too I think.
  9. started scoring more when he got more batting-friendly pitches.
  10. Kagiso Rabada [100 test wickets]

    steyn was very accomplished in asia at his peak too.
  11. Bhuvi as 3rd seamer in SA Tests

    that would be good. if we want to strengthen bowling one can drop ashwin (take kuldeep) and move everyone a spot up. kuldeep is quite decent at 9.
  12. Rabada vs Amir

    yes, there is no comparison between the two. amir is not suited for tests; he is, however, so-so in ODIs.
  13. samarth is too inconsistent. reminds me of rahul in the early phases of his test career. scores a lot of sub-10 scores.
  14. Thommo - how quick was he?'

    seems difficult to believe that they played both at their peak; must be about 15 years separating their peaks. hence, this will mean that the batsman was: (i) either young in his career when facing holding, or (ii) aging when facing waqar. hence, I'm not disposed to play too much faith in their claims. age almost always does have a major impact on player reflexes which are v. important in handling rapid pace.
  15. brings up a nostalgic memories. if his career didn't end up so messed up, India would have had the perfect all-rounder at 7. he had a good temperament as a batsmen
  16. yes, he was. but BK and PK were real trundlers when they first emerged, and PK still is.
  17. yes, like most aussie pacers in recent times. fragile bones and fragile egos.
  18. Kuldeep Yadav Fan Club - A Match Winner

    Depends on the pitches. I think we'll go with 4+1 in which case he should play ahead of ashwin.
  19. If required rate is >4 then dhoni should bat at #11

    or went to the bathroom or somethin
  20. I'd forgotten to see that the squad was for shorter formats. I guess shankar is more effective bowling wise in the shorter formats.
  21. a classical swing bowler. reminds me more of the kumars in that respect, although their styles, builds, etc are different.
  22. his bowling is not decent. he is faster than ganguly and robin singh but in terms of his abilities, he's about the same. he's more of a part-timer than a batting all rounder in tests. in ODIs, if he can bat at a sufficiently high gear, he can be a batting all rounder.
  23. I don't see rana and sarfaraz as long format players. Shaw and gill are more promising (looking to even younger players, there's the 15 yr old parag)
  24. a good read. hope he doesn't throw away his starts in the other games.
