    Risabh Pant - Second Impression

    true. the current batch are still much better than some of the horrible 1990s (and pre 1990s) cricketers we had in Ind (I'm sure we all have our personal "favs" in this regard).
  2. I thought I saw taskin cross 140 (must have been fizz then I guess). somehow, that 142 kmph ball by shankar didn't feel so fast to me; atleast, it didn't appear so on the screen (I know looks can be deceiving).

    when tests are considered (not just ODIs), shikhar dhawan is not a legendary batsman and not an ATG either.
  4. the speed guns seems suspicious. the Bangladesh pacers were all able to touch 140 (or above) and I'm not convinced that they can attain such speeds apart from Taskin. Fizz can attain such speeds but he's coming off an injury and has been slower (at least visually) since then.

    also khurasiya.
  6. I never felt that Badri would cut it at int'l level. Yes, he scored that 50 against Steyn but it was a very unconvincing knock. To me, Badri was a poor man's Pujara and had many of the same failings that Chepu exhibits overseas (but not in SC).
  7. I assume the other "pacers" from Kar would be pretty ordinary (Binny...lol).
  8. how was prasidh? saw that he was wicketless.

    Risabh Pant - Second Impression

    but pant had a good domestic T20 season and a decent (albeit inconsistent) List A season. the timing of the selection was decent, if not ideal.
  10. a groan- or yawn-inducing match. even this trundler "attack" was apparently too much for Bangladeshs to handle. I wonder how they would do against the Ind U19 attack (Mavi, Porel with full fitness, and Nagarkotti).

    DK > Pant

    nothing major. neither has DK. but they will need to be rotated so that others like hooda and rahul can play.

    Can we beat Bangladesh with this team?

    looks like Bangladeshs couldn't even handle this "trundler" attack.
  13. Mama is omnipresent, omniscient, etc. Hence His judgment is the only the one that matters.
  14. Hotman scored quite little even against the mighty Banglas. He is really in a rut.
  15. I dunno about ICF but Irfan Pathan was regularly compared with Kapil when he was at his peak.

    that's why I said I didn't see anything special today.
  17. probably because he failed against Oz on what was a very spin-friendly pitch.

    DK > Pant

    would be better to get rahul in place of pandey.
  19. since it's ummi, he will return to being a spraygun soon enough.
  20. there are too many players who bat like a dream for pretty 20s and 30s. needs to kick on. in both knocks, he got out trying to over-dominate the bowling.
  21. Some of Azhar's fixing buddies deserve to be ranked up there, ahead of MSD.

    Risabh Pant - Second Impression

    He still doesn't look the part, but the sample size is still pretty small. However, if he fails throughout the tourney, he will fall behind Kishan in the queue.

    Still no KL Rahul

    don't think so. team wants to give pant a long rope presumably.

    He finished with decent figures today, but I didn't see anything special today. I'd still rate him more of a 6th bowler instead of being a 5th bowler who can bowl 10 overs in most occasions.
  25. Finally, Raina's tuk-tuking has come to an end. He looks a shadow of his peak self.
