    Skillful or not, there’s no escaping the yo-yo

    I am just sharing my experience. On topic below from Cricinfo Teams have different speed levels as qualifying marks. India have set 16:1 as the qualifying speed level, which means it is mandatory for their players to finish the first shuttle of speed level 16, which in terms of accumulated distance is 1120 metres. Pakistan's minimum level is now 17:4; West Indies are at 19, and New Zealand probably have the highest level, 20:1.

    I recently saw rohit was fielding close to where i was sitting, to be fair the guy looked fit to me. Ill accept i was a good 20m away but no way could he be termed unfit or round. The man i was shocked to see was VVS, saw him up close sure he was in a suit but he has maintained himself i bet he would pass that test even today.

    Is qualification for 2026 WC a realistic goal?

    See identifying talent, coaching from grassroot level and building better infra/ league i am with you without those in place we arent going anywhere but we are talking about qualifying not winning the whole thing that i know is not happening. I do however disagree on the whole physical part. I have a colleague from your state b@stard is 6'4" built for NFL and hey Messi is 5'7" even neymar is 5'9". We are 130cr am sure 30 of them can play as well as those two, question is how to find them and train them.
  6. what a crap time for sanju samson to fail this test

    Saudi are ranked 30 ahead of us, we just need to beat them or Australia to qualify. Iceland with a population to fill 4 eden gardens is at WC with the kind of private focus we should take rapid strides.
  8. Degree and job has been handed but tools to succeed are missing. For cricket to survive we need more countries to play and if this is the way forward so be it. I see t20 getting picked by more European countries but test cricket needs major revamp.

    Manjrekar: Pujara , a proven failure in overseas.

    sure but lets not underestimate our ability to bring teams/players back in form.

    Manjrekar: Pujara , a proven failure in overseas.

    So if we discard Pujara lets see whom are we left with. Kohli who is yet to score in England, Rahane has his own troubles, an ageing Vijay, fragile Rahul. Hardik/Saha will struggle so on what basis are we claiming we will win in england?
  12. Its going to be tough for them to make an impact in test cricket. They have a non existent domestic structure, no infra to support and groom new talent,fitness standards are going up and they wont be able to attract right coaching and support staff. With so many challenges how do they improve batting technique, just imagine them playing a test against SA on the kind of tracks we got earlier in the year. Raw talent is fine but in today's age video analysis is available at all levels, i hope they are investing on it. Road is tough but these are tougher men, hope they will come out on top but they shouldnt expect overnight results.
  13. One thing to learn from BD is to keep mouth and emotions under check.

    Rahane's performance watch

    Its laughable to pin Rahanes inability to play any kind of spin on a man who isnt even in team. Rahane and not Ashwin is leading test side in the absence of kohli so lets not term it a loss of confidence due to lack of faith nonsense.

    Rahane's performance watch

    I watched him bat yesterday. Rahane has himself to blame guy had gone in a shell and playing for time when pujara was looking for singles. He is responsible for his and pujara wicket.
  16. With football being flavor of the day lets say India today were to take on Germany who are no 1 ranked team what do you think would be the outcome.
  17. I am curious on how afghans translate bit of limited over success in test. A quick glance at Indian team and its just too much for Afghan to handle.

    Infuse Test cricket with T20 buzz: Kevin Pietersen

    Does India Need a Caste-based Quota in Cricket?

    We are primarily talking about people not getting oppertunity to showcase their talent due to caste based bias. Irrespective of what one says such bias exist and will exist for another 2-3 decades. So till then should we bring in such a policy in sport, such the idea sounds worth discussing however reality is even if such a thing was implemented the like of tejaswini will play and not the ones for whom the quota is actually allocated.
  20. Losing a game of cricket isnt humiliation however will let someone from your country talk about humiliation https://tribune.com.pk/story/1612550/4-saba-qamar-shares-humiliating-experience-international-airport/
  21. If today in an India Pak game Dhoni were to fail as a batsman you will see more people celebrating his failure in an indian forum than a pak forum.
  22. What is wrong with all of you ? To sumup what people are trying to convey is Rahul is a far better batsman than Kohli and that Kohli is jealous of him hence keeps Rahul out of squad on purpose. Is this what you are trying to say ?
  23. Both Rohit and Rahul got equal number of test in SA. Rohit isnt going to England but Rahul will go, Kohli doesnt have any bias its some fans who do. Also if Rahane and Vijay are better than Kohli then why does record books say otherwise ?
  24. oh i did watch Kohli fail in england but then i also watch him get 4 100s in australia. My problem is Rahul being projected by some as another Sachin in making based on what he did at IPL. You expect him to win us test series in england based on what he did at IPL but overlooking his performance in SA. Sure Rahul may have the potential but if he isnt in playing xi its not because of some huge conspiracy.
  25. Dont we Indians love conspiracies. Everyone in the so called 'Rahul camp' so glad to pick him over Kohli and comeup with all sorts of theories on how Rahul is discriminated against please explain how just a few months back when Rahul under tough conditions in SA against a quality attack was made to look like a lost puppy while Kohli who came in right after him was scoring 100s. This was not one inning it was four innings over 2 test.
