  1. Agree. The sport should be competitive at the end. Other boards running bankrupt would eventually lead to poorer quality of cricketing sides.
  2. Right hand XI hands down.. Bumrah or Brett Lee for Waqar
  3. I'm not questioning Tests.. it's LOIs where he hasn't made impact.
  4. Kinda agree with the OP here.. Even though I don't expect these guys to perform every time they come in, I would like to see at least 1-2 impact performances from Pant, Shaw, Saini in the formats that we are backing them.. I can't remember one LOI innings where Pant made an impact. Yeah, he got dropped unfairly after his concussion, but he's played 16 ODIs and 28 T20Is (and this isn't a small number), but there is not one defining innings that you can remember or call match winning.
  5. This seems to be the trend among the old gen players... Talk crap about current players to get headline attention.. Patil did that with Rahane last week Now Bhajji with Sundar
  6. Was looking forward to the new gen of quicks - two of Prasidh, Mavi, Warrier, Siraj. Bhuvi is still fine, but was hoping they use this series to blood the next gen of pacers... Bumrah's selection for this useless ODI tour was unnecessary.
  7. He always tends to play down the wrong line to left arm spinners for some reason. Here's Grant Flower to Sachin from the 2003 WC.. He's troubled him a few other times.. I remember Sachin getting out quite a few times to some rookie lefties in IPL too - Syed Mohammed and Shadab Jakati
  8. Piss poor selection. Nothing has really changed with the new selection committee. Why Kohli, Bumrah, Dhawan, Jadeja, Bhuvi for this tour
  9. He can do better than Rahane and Pujara for sure
  10. Tendulkar as always got out to a left arm spinner.. they've always troubled him - Ashley Giles, Grant Flower, many others
  11. The series starts in less than a week and the squad has not yet been announced?
  12. The backing of CSK buddies also started after 2011. Maybe captaincy power and success got into his head.. With Kohli though, it is only captaincy power and no success
  13. Dube? No, thank you. And Mayank need to take a break. Looked horrendous.
  14. If not for the grouping, I would have picked Aus, Eng, WI, NZ(despite the 0-5 against India) But with this grouping, England, India, WI, Aus are likely semi finalists
  15. Looks like Kohli wants yes guys as selectors and coaches. Kohli will select the squad and coach the team. Bevda will continue to get drunk and Joshi/Harvinder will barely get a say in selections. Well done!
  16. No one is questioning his technique... They are questioning his arrogance, immaturity, and arguably lack of luck with tosses
  17. Isn't that a good thing it's changed? Those were times that one team absolutely dominated both forms of the game.. Now, there is no one team that dominates. On the flip side, it is annoying to see so much of home side advantage.. plus add the win the toss, win the game kind of conditions
  18. When's the India squad announcement?
  19. More resemblance to 2011 Dhoni bowled at Lord's.. Kohli is bowling at Christchurch..
  20. More resemblance to 2011 Dhoni bowled at Lord's.. Kohli is bowling at Christchurch..
  21. In some innings, those were the runs added by the first 5 wickets as well
  22. I'm not surprised that our batting is faltering.. but why are our bowlers not able to pick wickets when their bowlers look like a million dollars
