  1. 1st T20 : SA v IND | Wanderers, Jo'berg 6:30 PM IST

    Unadkat will be cannon fodder outside subcontinent. His variations wont be effective here in SA.

    SA vs Ind ODIs Final Standings: Thanks god bookie @zakk didn't win
  5. Anything less than 2019 World cup is not acceptable

    Same was expected in CT, and we decided to choke against padosis.
  6. Well, all praise go to Lord. My Poyys played well. Other ICF poyys should try better next time Thanks @goose for tirelessly sending us reminders to participate. Really appreciate your enthusiasm and hard work for hosting this
  7. On the verge of Victory, both India and me
  8. Bat - Rahane or Markram Ball - Ngidi or Hardik Field - Kohli or Rohit
  9. Who should open with SRT in All time Indian ODI XI?

    Dhawan always seems to show up in ICC and important tourneys, so he is my first choice.
  10. Guess if this is a batsman or a bowler?

    9, 1/37, 14, 0/35, 0/34, 0/41, 3*, 0, 0/3, 4, 0/15, 0/50, 15, 0/14, 6 There are the scores of a player in his last 4 ODIs and two tests. So he has total one wicket and highest score of 15 to show. No prizes for guessing that it is Hardik Pandya but there will be prize for guessing if he is a batsman or bowler. I know that there is already a thread for 'How Long is the rope for Hardik! but I wanted to discuss something wider. Why is it that some players are given way too big a rope just based on potential (like Ishant, Rohit, Pandya) whereas other talents like Pant, KL Rahul, Iyer, etc. are kicked out at first opportunity? What happens if the talents given such long rope do not develop, do you still persist with them just because so much time has been spent on them. Ishant has remained the same or even regressed after 10 years, Rohit has bloomed only in ODIs and is still given chances in tests based on talent at Age 30. Pandya is played in all formats just on potential but his inconsistency is there for everyone to see. How much consistency can you expect from a player averaging in 20s with bat in domestic cricket. Now comes the next conundrum - It is because these talents block places in the team for long that deserving domestic performers do not get an opportunity in team at all or debut after their peak like Pandey, Jadhav, etc. Clearly it makes sense to play the best players and if they do not perform chuck them out and try someone new untill they give consistent performance. If the team was looking for a Seam bolwing allrounder why not try others as well and ask Pandya to work on his skills in domestics? Someone like Vijay Shankar or any other proper batting or bowling allrounder should be tried and given a run. Why put all your eggs in one basket? Now with less than a year for WC we still have a lot of questions unanswered from the CT final performance. Granted Pandya performed well there but these one off performances was given by someone like Yusuf Pathan as well who clearly is and was inconsistent. If like today one of our bowlers has a bad day we are left with 3 proper bowlers only.
  11. Bat - Rohit Ball - Morkel Field - ABD
  12. Coincidence or Crazy Level of Fixing?

    Crazy coincidence?
  13. Guess if this is a batsman or a bowler?

    I am talking about options for WC in England. Why put all your eggs in one basket? Panda is now blocking Shami similar to what happened in CT. If someone like Shankar is played he will be used as a 6th bowling option and as he swings the ball will be handful in England. Why put all your eggs in one basket?
  14. When are the results due?
  15. This is what happens when Rahane tries to hit big in ODIs:
  16. Should the Indian team atleast wear pink ribbons?

    October is the International Breast Cancer Awareness month. Not sure why SA having it in Feb in the first place. So in this instance I don't care as the funds will also go to a SA charity. India should do something similar when playing at home to collect for a local charity.
  17. Rozilla in the subcontinent: Rozilla outside the subcontinent:
  18. What bad form? He had a 208* in the last ODI before this series. Followed by 20, 15, 0, 5.
  19. Bat - ABD Ball - Rabada Field - Rahane
  20. Lol, would be fun if they play with spiked boots used in Cricket
  21. Bat - Kohli Ball - Kuldeep Field - New SA keeper
  22. Kedar Jadhav picked over Manish Pandey and Shreyas Iyer?

    Maybe the hundred against England.
  23. Did India make a mistake of not playing Kuldeep in tests

    Chahal had a good Ranji season last year, but was average before than. So not really sure how effective he will be in longer format.
