    Did you go watch the game? How was it?

    Yeah! Pretty good. The atmosphere was good, not especially electric in part perhaps Because it was not a close match (not that I was complaining about that ) the Indian innings started great but the middle overs was accumulation by Virat and Rohit. Could have been even more smooth had Dhawan not thrown it away


    Bharat Army were in a next stand and their chants were great which livened things up.


    Thought that India did great that day, good all round performance on a good batting wicket. Was disappointed with the pacemen not getting their lengths right and getting smashed. 


    Of course the lords match has soured things since!!

  2. The other

    But pant cant bowl. So, only Krunal can replace him or some other batsman who can bowl, preferably a spinner.  Nitish Rana bowls his offies well too and we do need some one who can bowl off spin.  Pant can only replace Dhoni and it will happen only after 2019 WC.

    Deepak Hooda too potentially. Good batsman and can bowl a bit of offspin

    Almost the same team as T20 will be played tomorrow. We don't have T20 specialists. We tend to play the same ones. Hope Raina is not played, but KKD is given a chance. Raina was dropped from the ODI squad and was only replacing Biryani Rayudu.

    Problem with that is 6th bowler lack thereof. Raina can potentially bowl a couple. I wish Krunal was in

    Ranji then India A and then selection. You do well in India A you should be selected. Should not fast track anyone ever. Pakistan can do that as they dont have much batting talent. In India you have to go through these stages. Nothing wrong with that if done properly.

    Totally agree. Especially on the fast bowlers like Maavi and Nagarkoti need to play a few seasons of FC cricket, learn how to bowl long spells and get stronger before even getting Into the A team I would say.


    Shaw and Gill have done well for FC and A team but would still like them to play one or two seasons for state before India cap.


    The bit older generation of Batsmen like Iyer, Agarwal, Nair maybe Vihari should be given a good run of chances

  5. 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

    Roy- dhawan ( dhawan is better)

    bairstrow- rohit ( rohit is better)

    Hales- kohli (not even a comparison, kohli is miles ahead)

    Root vs Rahul/iyer/karthik (if rahul plays he is better, iyer no way, karthik - only god knws which way the pendulam will swing)

    Butler- dhoni (butler wins here, remains to be seen how much dhoni will narrow the distance)

    Morgan- Raina/karthik ( morgan better then raina, with karthik again dnt knw which side of bed he ll wakeup)

    Moeen ali vs pandya ( hardik at 7 is way better then moeen)


    I dnt see the reason to worry to much, they may have players who start well but someone like rohit goes on a level of carnage that no other can 

    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

    Shardul Thakur? Isn't he already playing in the seniors team? The hell is wrong with these selectors. His name comes up mysteriously in every squad that they announce and he's nothing but an average trundler. 

    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

    Tendulkar, Lara, Kohli, AB, Dhoni are all long innings players with high average and SR. They are as reliable as Kallis if not more. Just that they can score much faster than Kallis.


    Shot making and anchoring/consistency are not mutually exclusive.



    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
