    Is this the best bollywood song of the decade?

    Its good but no where near best of the decade man come on. Ive stopped following Bolly music but every year for the four or five till 2016 ive posted a best of list, didnt do it for 2017 Number of songs on those are better than this. It was 21st on my list of 2015 (looking back on that list now there was more than a few questionable picks in it ) but still several better songs just from that year, not to mention other years Some of my faves include Bekharan from Saath Khoon Maaf, Phir Le Aaya Dil from Barfi, Banjaara from EK villain
  2. Has a replacement been announced? Likely to be Shardul been picking wkts for A team, and in Nidahas He isn't a good t20 bowler though
  3. I don't think it's a question of who is better in terms of skills and talent. England's sheer muscle is vastly superior. I'd agree that Dhawan is a better batsman but its hitting prowess that is the most prized asset in ODI batting and Roys SR is 104 Dhawan is 93
  4. India's lack of bowling options will turn out to be the difference. If one of the 5 bowlers has a bad day we will be relying on Raina. On slow low Indian wickets it may work, not here. England otoh are blessed with good all rounders. Krunal, Shankar and possibly Hooda should have been in the senior ODI squads for a while now.
  5. What's more he isn't a good limited overs bowler. Had they picked Siraj on the back of his good Vijay Hazare tournament or Ankit (could be in both A squads) would have been more sensible
  6. To be honest I worry for the Indian bowlers. Lack of 6th bowler option for us will be decisive. Unlike England who have good all rounders. Raina - likely to be him I guess- could get really smashed

    ESPN Cricinfo ODI eleven of the last 25 years

    Anchoring to me does not mean just long innings ; it's accumulation at one end whilst shot makers can do their thing at the other. This day and age though every team needs to be chock full of hammerers

    ESPN Cricinfo ODI eleven of the last 25 years

    Kallis is not a bad pick ; cant have a side bristling with shot makers an anchor type batsman is useful. Obviously he cant bat at 6. Put him at 3 and push everyone down a slot I think Ponting in, maybe for Lara, Shaun Pollock merits serious consideration too.
  9. So I cheated a bit and got Bapu Nadkarni and Polly Umrigar in bottom row middle.
  10. Good point- Krunal Pandya then. The squad is crying out for a 6th bowling option
  11. Manish Pandey could have been picked he is definitely more suited for ODIs than T20's, and that would have been a bit more forward looking. Better yet get a 6th bowling option like Krunal.
  12. Lets see.. theres going to be lots of guesses... From L to R ... Nissar or maybe Mushtaq Ali, Dont know, Nayudu? Borde?, Hazare, MAK Pataudi, Gupte, Dont know, Dont know, Dont know, Lala Amarnath, Vinoo Mankad

    Sachin vs ABDV !!!

    Really..? Worth looking into , for me I'd have thunk AB bit ahead. But certainly no comparison with SRT

    AB de Villiers Retires from International Cricket

    AB de Villiers Retires from International Cricket

    A contender for an all time ODI XI but For all his amazing LOI feats he should be placed high in the pantheon of greats in tests too... off the top of my head he has more special innings in test cricket than LOIs

    Drop Inconsistent Karun Nair

    Yep . I thought he should have gone to Nidahas trophy. He had a good Ranji too, been under par in IPL but still one of the better domestic Batsmen hope he does great for the A team
  19. Actually Priyank has been consistent for 3 seasons now. I was comparing his and Easwarans numbers... and to me he should have been in the squad instead of Easwaran

    First choice T-20 x1 vs Flamboyant youngsters

    It dosent have to be youngsters- but if it was just guys who made a good case but werent picked... Karun Nair Suryakumar Yadav Shreyas Iyer Rishab Pant Vijay Shankar Sanju Samson Krunal Pandya Krishnappa Gowtham Shreyas Gopal Ankit Rajpoot Basil Thampi
  21.  till the BCCI organises an ‘A’ tour and till you play there, we don’t know you from Adam. This is a ridiculous state of affairs.”... the ‘A’ tour circuit is a very disorganised structure and depends upon a lot of factors --- And who's fault is that.. if the BCCI arranged A team series in a regular and organised way, the system would work fine . It is absolutely right that good domestic performance is rewarded with a A team Spot and good A team performance with a senior cap. The A team needs to be held in higher regard so that a call up to that is a big deal. btw all the calls for Mayank to be in the Nidahas squad werent entirely justified anyway- he was great in FC and one day cricket but there were Batsmen who had better IPL records and T20 SMA tourneys- like Nair... Can't select a T20 squad based on Ranji performance

    India A squads for the tour of UK

    Well he'd be playing as an all rounder... I wasn't suggesting he play as a front line bowler . He might be better bowler and batsman than Jayant.

    India A squads for the tour of UK

    15/16 Easwaran 454 runs in 6 matches at 50.44 Panchal 665 runs in 8 matches at 55.41 16/17 Easwaran 498 runs in 7 matches at 41.50 Panchal 1310 runs in 10 matches at 87.33 17/18 Easwaran 564 runs in 7 matches at 47.00 Panchal 542 runs in 7 matches at 60.22 I have not seen either of them bat but going by stats alone, Panchal should have been in that squad instead of Easwaran.

    India A squads for the tour of UK

    Yeah that is three good seasons, averaging 50 + over three seasons including top scorer in 16/17- that is consistent! Correct me if Im wrong but wasn't last season Easwarans break through? How did he fare before that? That was my question, hasnt Panchal has done better over a longer period of time? IMO that would make him more deserving of an A team Spot. He Didn't have a great series Vs NZ A though
