    Decoding Mohammad Abbas, the Sialkot not-so-express

    i think batsmen need to be a bit more unorthodox at the crease while facing him like standing a few inches out side the crease and so on. Abbas is such a rhythm bowler with a more rigid skiddy release. If batsmen improvise, I think he will find it difficult to adjust because he lacks pace and it would be lot more difficult to alter his line and length accordingly.
  2. it seems this time too there are no practice matches before tests... don't know as to what these morons are up to....
  3. Let Shastri says 100 or even 1000 'no's captain saab.... we the fans need results... both of you have messed up 2 tough abroad tours.... While one was a close one another was a disaster. No better chance than this 3rd one with a weakened Aussie team. First bring results and then talk what ever you want.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    so basically what you seems to say is that it we take each and every one of batting factors, Sachin should come out on top in each and every one of these factors when pitted against all his contemporary batsmen....isn't it???If that is the criteria, then you can think what ever you like.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    brilliant compilation. That 93 came off 102 balls only I think. And all his 89+ namely 89*,93,98 came in chasing which required 5+ runs rates. That makes these even more remarkable to add to 'the 2Ws playing in all 3 of these & Akhtar in all but one.And these 3 inns have a combined 100+ str: rate too!!!!! . And all these came in generally cool swinging conditions too.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    yes ... that arguement is valid because by the time Sachin played those 2011 ENG tour Sachin was 38+ of age.A batsman's failure needs to be evaluated also from the angle that it takes only a single delivery for the batsman to discontinue for the rest of the inns. But with Wasim & Waqar, them being bowlers even if they were hit for a 6(the worst possible result in a single delivery) , they could still come back and bowl brilliantly and cause trouble for Indian batsmen for the rest of the inns. More over they each needed to bowl only 10 overs for the day, that too taking adequate rests in between spells .Wasim was 36y & 9 months,not being an out and out fast bowler, relied more on his variety of tricks .Waqar was only 31. So it needs only a little bit of sense to understand that both the above contexts are convincingly different from one another.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    yes..... it is better not to deal with your dumb ass non sense either. '98 in 2003 was not scored against superior attack period', 'Sachin got to play at 17 y 212 d just because of pure luck' ...........these type of sense less childish pranks can be uttered by utmost fools only. And I was not at all eager to respond to your foolish pranks either ... It was just because of your attempts to downgrade such a great batsman that I was tempted to respond.. Your sole intention is only this .Make others agree with what all non senses you are sprouting out at any cost.So keep on with your once in a while emotional statements like 'Kohli will score better than Sachin against any attack which Sachin faced at any point in his caree','Kohli is already better than Sachin ever was even if he does not play a single odi from here onwards.' etc etc. Again ,once more ,'Mr: Putrevus is the top most analyst that can ever be,he can never say any thing wrong'. While I conclude by saying this I think I have done every thing w.r.t debating with you because this is the only thing that you want ultimately.
  8. Legacy left behind by the great Kaptaan sahib...... tampering, chucking , taking umpires into their hands..... all these are in their blood...

    For the love of God, Pant has to perform in LOIs

    this guy has the talent to succeed in LOIs. Has all the shots and that's why he has done well at test level even in ENG. Needs to have temperament for LOIs.Needs to try to built an inns and then hit out....
  10. it seems Pakistan is taking one step forward in every new format and at least 2 steps backward in older formats and hence ICC needs to introduce shorter formats like T10, T5, T2.5 etc etc .Any way great going by PAK in T20s.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    "98 was some how scored against a very superior attack which is not true at all." Reasons ..... one Mr:Putrevus gave a final verdict that both the attacks were of the same quality despite the fact that his dumb ass logics were proven emphatically sense less from every ankle and thrown into waste basket. Was going thru the posts continuously.Where ever you put some weird sense less reasons, those were badly exposed thru crystal clear sensible facts based on data so that you had no answer what so ever. Yet again, once in a while you would come up with these plain emotional statements that have no logic what so ever as if to proclaim that you can never say any wrong just like you have done in the above post too.
  12. Great win by Zim, though Sahkib,Tamim & Fizz were absent. Rajput needs to be hired by BCCI in some discipline.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    Here is the difference in basic logic. For a general rule, it is very difficult to main longevity. So not arguing here. Each to his own

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    Hayden close to Sachin??? don't under stand some of the logics.... every body knows that for each and every match a player is playing in , there is no guarantee that he will perform .That being the case longevity is a very important factor. Sachin in a phase has 11000+ runs in 249 inns @ 49 avg: & 89 str: rate. Hayden has only 6133 @ 43.8 & 79 .How is it even close for a comparison???
  15. rtmohanlal

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    'nervous wreck' ......you really exceeds yourself every time with your brilliant logics. And Wasim deliberately decided to bowl badly to Sachin despite it being a world cup match against India just because it was his last match. Waqar too was yet to recover from the hangover of the 96 world cup thrashing at the hands of Jadeja and hence bowled badly .

    What's wrong with Rahul?

    no match temperament & mental toughness what so ever. He only has some talent.... that's all
  17. Azhar is spot on.... Firstly playing both Pant and Kartik in the team for a low profile match in every sense ....then not providing chances for the rookie to build in confidence. Just can't understand the thought process of team management

    Krunal Pandya’s knock today is a breath of fresh air

    that was a very good clutch inns from Krunal. Hope he gets into one dayers soon. Jadeja & Krunal can play as spin bowling all rounders. Kuldeep and Chahal as specialists.When Hardik is back in the team he can be one of the seamers.Do not need Bhuvi or Umesh as front line seamers in LOIs. Any way these 2 are proven mediocrities. So Hardik can be at the least more or less as much efficient as either of these 2. Badly wish Pant replaced Dhoni in the team .Then Rohit,Dhawan,Kohli,Rayudu,Kedar,Pant,Hardik,Krunal,Jadeja,Kuldeep,Chahal,Khaleel,Bumrah can form the nucleus of LOI moving forward.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    i have followed each and every Sachin inns right from the start of his career till the very end.And while I filtered out data and clearly explained my reasons based on the data, what you are doing is using emotional statements like 'dancing around' ,'fanboyish' etc,etc. If you are so clear w.r.t 'real match situation' why can't trace out proof based on data???
  20. rtmohanlal

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    yeah ... now we can change to another goal post ...firstly the criteria was putting substantial runs in both the inns, when ample data was provided to prove that wrong then the goal post changed to 'crunch situation' knocks.And when brief explanation was provided as to why they were crunch knocks, now coming with yet another criteria. People like you only will tell that with 144 huge first inns deficit to fill in and then built on a substantial 2nd inns score with series still in the balance is just an ordinary situation. And now the goal post has changed to '135 for 8 , 80 to win'.Laxman was more accustomed to playing with tail and putting on substantial runs him being a 6th position batsman. And on 2 or 3 occasions he remained there till the end to finish the chase.Laxman's greatness lies in this fact. To put it simple, what people like you are basically doing is high lighting a few factors where other batsmen's performances are better to those of Sachin and then dismissing 'all other majority factors in which Sachin convincingly outweighed all these other batsmen' as nothing to be taken seriously.This is called ' utter nonsense' at its very best. On a side note , found it funny when you yourself put the criteria as 'both inns performance in one post ' and then dismissed Dravid's twin 100 performance' as good for nothing because of the match ending in a boring draw.Here you are conveniently dismissing the fact that had Dravid not played that huge 190 in the first inns , India would have obliged a huge first inns lead to NZL's 366 and the course of the match would have been entirely different. So do one thing... You believe in what ever you want to believe, i shall stick on with my verdicts.

    Jadeja, the all-format specialist ?

    Jadeja is that sort of player who has been mismanaged by the team management for long.Once he proved to be huge success as a bowler in home conditions in tests , he should have been tried at no: 6 test slot after say first 10 tests itself. This is because he was having first class avg: of 50+ in batting as well. Naturally even if he proved to be not up to the mark for the slot, he could have been demoted in the order. On the other hand if he indeed proved fit for the slot , India could have got a quality spin all rounder.And this would have given lot more confidence in one dayers too. But it took them an 86* in ENG to know that he could be that all rounder. Any way better late than never.
  22. rtmohanlal

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    just can't understand some of these logics here. To clarify , I am going a bit deeper here 68-119* in ENG,179-54 vs WI, 47-113 in NZL, 177-74 in ENG, 116-52 in AUS , 41-86 in WI, 214-53* vs AUS,74-36* in Zim ,49-64 in NZL all comes into mind along with 241*-60* in AUS. Even his 35-57 in Pak in his first tour was such a quality performance when you consider his age, the prestige His 119* in ENG earned a respectable 1-0 loss instead of a 2-0 loss. And this is no better reflected in the reccent 1-4 loss. As a fan, badly wished if IND coud win either of those close matches because 2-3 is so respectable than an 1-4.From that point take his 177-74. ENG had already won first test despite Sachin performing brilliantly in the 3rd inns.In the 3rd test , not only did Sachin lay the foundation for a respective 0-1 loss if not for an 1-1 draw , but in the 3rd inns when every one was falling around him he dragged the score to 211.Had Sachin too got out cheaply, IND could have even lost the test and there by the series 0-2(keep in mind the Sydney 2008 test). Take that 47-113 in NZL. After the first test getting washed out, Sachin along with Azhar gave some thing to defend with a 208 end score.And after conceeding a huge 144 run lead in first inns, Sachin again scored that 113 with NZL left 213 to win.Had it not for bowlers incompetency IND could have won that test.So what do you expect here from Sachin?? To bowl the team out of trouble too????Infact had IND won this test, it would have at least earned a series draw if not a won seires.Was n'tit a crunch situation for Sachin to perform??? Similarly take his 86 in WI. In that 4rth inns of the 5th test with series at 1-1 he scored that 86.Wasn't this a crunch situation??Even take that 241*.The series in the balance, wasn't it a crunch situation for him to score 241* in the last test???? And he backed it up with a 60* in the 2nd inns so that IND can win. Like wise I can find this crunhness in almost all of the above pointed out pair of knocks. And now come the changing of goal posts. Dragging Sehwag and his asian exploits.Every kid knows that Sehwag was a monster in Asia.But his other short comings make him inferior to Sachin. Similar is the case with Laxman who was virtually a non existant one day player.To be precise no body is claiming that Sachin was the best in each and every batting factor. It is just that when all things combined he was the most complete and hence the best of them all.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    68-119* in ENG,179-54 vs WI, 47-113 in NZL, 177-74 in ENG, 116-52 in AUS , 41-86 in WI, 214-53* vs AUS,74-36* in Zim ,49-64 in NZL all comes into mind along with 241*-61* in AUS. Even his 35-57 in Pak in his first tour was such a quality performance when you consider his age, the prestige associated with the result, the match situation & the opposition bowling quality. I am sure, if I make a deeper analysis I can trace out more.All the above said were either 'at abroad' or 'back to the wall' or 'against top quality bowling attack' or 'mammoth scores' or a combination of these.So ,your point??
  24. then it is so good on Harbhajan ..... Quinton De cock has done the first step of this to Warner of which the dividends are starting to pay off. Hope all the Aussie players get the same treatment. These double standard oppertunists think they can do what ever they want in the form of mental disintegration or intimidation.Even the Aussie media, umpires & even their crowds take part in this unfair tactics. The personnel abuse they commit on other players in utmost desperate match situations are even of the most disrespectful nature.

    yes...this is the main point.Kohli has reached a different peak & so too has his esteem in the minds of crores of people . How he moves on from here would settle this debate.
