    2023 WC hate list

    Rohit, Dhawan. Nobody else in the 35+ list for 2023. Kohli will be 34
  2. Of course, what else would you expect from Sachin? He was an ATG batsman, but a horrible captain and understandably a poor selector too. Saying that Sachin is a capable strategist is akin to saying Dhoni has great batting technique.

    Who should be next India coach?

    Looks like Moody is being set up for coach.. They've already dropped him as SRH coach... Moody for cricket and Modi for India at the helm... lol.
  4. There's lot of public outrage given how NZ "lost" and England "won" the World cup. Immense criticism of poor rules and NZ hard done by ICC. I wonder if public reaction would have been the same had NZ won on the basis of scoring more boundaries. Would public have said rules are rules and NZ won fair and square, or would there have been the same level of criticism of rules that we have today Adding a poll too.
  5. Maybe all this setting up Moody to coach India?

    What next for Vijay Shankar?

    Exactly. I trust Gill to succeed more than Shaw and Pant. He looks a sound batsman, probably failed in NZ due to the pressure of a big stage.. We have 4 years to groom him to be the core of middle order in ODI. That said, I think Shankar is good for the ODI middle order too.. He got needlessly hyped up as 3D and fast tracked to WC squad that set him up for failure.. He didn't massively fail.. Played one bat shot, got one brilliant delivery.. He has looked solid otherwise. I'd play Gill at 3, Pandey/Iyer at 4 and Shankar at 5 to start off the WI series... How they perform over the next few months will determine further course of action.
  7. Time to get Saini, Nagarkoti, Mavi, Avesh in ODIs
  8. Let him win 10 more for Srini mama, but pls spare Team India
  9. should have a squad that looks like below... wouldn't expect a complete overhaul, but it will suck if kohli or dhoni feature in the squad. rohit (c) mayank gill pandey shankar pant jadeja s gopal / r chahar bhuvi khaleel saini s iyer i kishan w sundar d chahar
  10. @velu velu bhai, this news is not to laugh at haters, it is to laugh at fans who think he is going to win you the match but goes bust everytime he bats these days... he might end his career with more matches that he lost for his team than matches he won.. he's probably already there
  11. Maybe goes to say that he has been a liability for 10: years and will continue to be for another year
  12. They can say anything they want now that they have the WC with them
  13. Yeah, blood sucking... But I think the only reason he's sticking on is the CSK contact until 2020

    Can someone explain the rationale of these rules

    Great read on Cricinfo. Very well written https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/27200532/why-count-boundaries-determine-wins-world-cup-here-three-better-ways
  15. The team needs to plan and score more boundaries during the innings to make sure that they get an advantage when there happens to be a super over and it gets tied? How stupid is that? How can a team plan in advance for that? If a super over happens and get tied, you either : 1. Play another super over and another till you're able to break the tie (or) 2. Share the trophy How is England a better side today to be called Champions when they scored the same number of boundaries as NZ (albeit including a questionable overthrow) and losing more wickets than NZ?
  16. Which means he won't play in the WI series, but wait for a home tour for a farewell international game.. and then play IPL 2020 and then retire from all cricket.

    What next for Vijay Shankar?

    He is no good in T20
  18. No, I was referring to the fact that they said on air that it is news that they are covering but no other news channels are
  19. He isn't retiring without a farewell series.. And he'll drag on till IPL at least, if not T20 WC.
  20. News reporting is getting uglier by the day. We have news that no other channel is reporting?
  21. What's the selection criteria : whoever can be a yes guy to Kohli and drink 10 beers every day?

    Why didn’t Tendulkar retire after WC2011?

    Cause he had his 100th ton coming up... Not supporting Sachin, but at least he had something to look forward to. Why does Dhoni want to stay? What does he want to achieve by staying on? except find newer ways to lunge and choke.

    Then it would have been 3 required of the last ball and Stokes would have played a different shot for a full toss on leg stump. Too many hypothetical situations
