  1. Cometh the hour cometh the man

    Cometh the man cometh the runouts Good innings nonetheless.. Second most valuable batsman in the ODI squad after Kohli.
  2. Heinrich Klassen : Poor man's MS Dhoni

    Klassen can bat for both sides in a SA vs NZ match. Open the batting for NZ and nobody will know
  3. Guess if this is a batsman or a bowler?

    Goes to show how much Yuvraj Singh is being missed. He was the fifth bowler who could give 6-7 overs, sometimes more consistently with other part timers chipping in with 3-4 overs. Jadeja used to play that role with for some time. Now, you can’t expect 10 overs from Jadhav. None of the other Top order batsmen can bowl. So Pandya becomes seemingly indispensable.
  4. 5.3-0- 68 -1

    Had an off-day, but have to question why Kohli persisted with him.. Couldn't he have completed Bumrah's and Bhuvi's overs to build pressure and keep Chahal and Pandya for the end overs? There's the risk of spinner bowling the last few, but the match didn't even go to the last few overs
  5. Mark my words. Raina will do well in T20s, and get back to the ODI side, and take the flight to England for the WC. We'll likely end up playing Pandey or Rahane at 4, Dhoni at 5 and Raina at 6.
  6. Guess if this is a batsman or a bowler?

    I don't mind if Pandya is given a long rope, but that only means they keep him in the scheme of things.. It doesn't mean they play him in every match in every format making him look indispensable. It looks like arrogance has gotten into him, and the attitude that he will not get dropped from the team anyway stops him from trying more and setting the bar higher. I wouldn't mind dropping him in one format, maybe Tests and trying out Vijay Shankar. He can be a proper No.6 batsman, who can fill in for a few overs to give the front-line fast bowlers some break.

  8. CSK Playing 11

    I'm very optimistic about Santner. He is CSK's best purchase this year IMO. Hope he gets enough games and wrecks the visiting teams.
  9. CSK Playing 11

    Looks like a good starting XI. There is even the option of getting in Rayudu or Shorey at 4, and playing Wood/Ngidi instead of Thakur. Santner would be No.10 and Wood at 11. Or open with Billings and play Faf at 4 if Watson doesn't show form
  10. Why not take the lunch break during the innings break itself?
  11. This is how you chase scores like 210-220 and not take it till the last over.. Well done, U-19 team. one more trophy to your name. Great innings Manjot.
  12. Is it just me or does anybody else see a touch of Yuvraj Singh in Manjot Kalra’s strokes?
  13. There’s still Rishab Pant and Sanju Samson in the line before that
  14. Winning an overseas ODI series is far more important than testing bench strength. If anything, they should have tested bench against SL at home, not against SA in SA
  15. Rabada in DD

    Rabada will play for DD. misleading title
  16. Now media will call this unavailability of SA’s star players as the reason for India’s win
  17. Glad to see we are winning overseas, but is India over-dependent on Kohli for chases? Who else does well in chases if we lose Kohli early? How many successful chases have we had in the last 15 months without Kohli making a significant contribution?
  18. KKR Playing 11

    Or DK? Mostly Robbie because he has been with the squad for a few years now.
  19. Unfortunately, DK, Manish, Jadhav is going to be our middle order for WC 2019... One thing that could change it by a bit is if these guys have a disastrous IPL, while Gill has an exceptional IPL
  20. Yeah, good excuse now if he flops in ODIs - Test batting confused his ODI game
