  1. Lol at Aussies claiming that people are making sweeping statements. Even the newbie Aussie players make sweeping statements. Every time a side tours Aus, some Aussie guy from past or present always claims that a whitewash is imminent

    13 ODIs to WC

    Exactly. One change though. DK or Pant will come in place of Manish Pandey as the fifth batsman / back up keeper. 15th spot could be Rahul or Jadeja

    On This day..... Thread

    On this day, in 2018, the most useless thread of all was also started
  4. Depends on the match situation. If my team is defending 50 runs of the final over, I wouldn’t even mind giving the ball to the wicketkeeper to bowl. If it is a tighter situation, less than 10 runs required, then one of Bumrah, Malinga, Bhuvi, Narine, McGrath, Steyn, Bravo
  5. Rohit should drop himself down the order. Let KL and Shreyas open with Pant, Pandey, DK, Rohit, Krunal to follow.
  6. Maybe he thinks resting Bumrah and Bhuvi gives RCB a chance to win the IPL
  7. IPL will still have the same viewership even if they rest a couple of bowlers
  8. Will be good if implemented. My guess is they will allow them to play the first half of the tournament and fix a cut off date to take the bowlers to rehab/training.
  9. They asked for non-beef food. That doesn’t mean they’ll have only non-beef food. Aus players would eat beef. Shami / Khaleel can eat it if they prefer that.
  10. The alternatives DK and Pappu were just as bad if not worse. Dhoni should have stopped playing T20s at least after 2013 or so
  11. He should start thinking that way about ODIs too
  12. How about they hire an Indian chef locally or even better take a chef along for tours?
  13. What’s the significance of this?
  14. For a start, they can even try Rahul at 4. One failure and he is kicked out of ODIs. He is too good a player to sit out for so long

    Strength Meter: Current ODI side

    Yes, Jadhav for Dhoni was the replacement
  16. Hoping for a retirement announcement from International cricket after the Windies tour Play KL at 4 and Pant at 5 and Jadhav at 6. Reasonably good middle order in ODIs

    India Test squad for #AUSvIND -

    Good to see Vijay in place of Dhawan, easily the better Test player. Theee complaints - Why Rohit instead of Nair or even Agarwal? Why Pappu? Any other young wicketkeeper Samson, Kishan etc would have been future looking. Siraj should have been drafted in the Test squad, particularly an overseas one with pace and bounce.
  18. Looks like a fitness question. He will come back from Manish Pandey in the Aus series. Pandey in the ODI squad is looking more and more like Dinesh Mongia of 2003. Nobody including himself knew why he is in the squad

    BREAKING: India's squad for final three ODIs

    One average bowling performance and they go running back to Bumrah.. He deserved more rest instead of playing a useless bilateral at home vs WI.. They should have tried Saini or Mavi.
  20. He's already sealed the No.4 spot for the WC.. he delivers every time Kohli expects him to..
  21. Rayudu striking higher than Kohli
  22. Rayudu aint going anywhere.. He has sealed the No. 4 spot.. Delivers every time Kohli expects him to score.. Ugly looking technique, but looks like he is here to stay till 2019 WC.. No. 5 is a toss up between Jadhav and Pant... Hope Dhoni sticks to No. 6.. which means Rahul will stay a back up opener.

    The elephant in the room part 2

    It is not a random FB post. It is people I know personally who are Sachin bhakts

    The elephant in the room part 2

    lol, what a joke.. google up and you will find 100 articles, some dated as recent as 2016, which is 12 years after the incident. I have a bunch of Sachin bhakts who keep posting this stuff on FB, can't dig through 100s of facebook posts... the most recent one that I remember is when one of them posted after DK's innings in the Nidahas trophy final that he finally forgave Dinesh Karthik for the 'crime' he committed by not letting Sachin get a 100.

    Only 14 member squad for WC?

    We’re anyway going with a 14 man squad with dadu taking one spot. Now it’s going to be 13?
