    Rohit Sharma injured; to miss World Cup? 

    With the exception of Bumrah and Kohli, India has coverage for every squad member. Shaw, Rahul, and Aggarwal ready to step-in if Rohit has to sit out world cup.
  2. 12-13 players pick themselves so not expecting major surprises. Batsmen: Dhawan, Sharma, Kohli, Rahul*, Jadhav and DK** Wkt-keeper: Dhoni Spinners: Chahal and Yadav All-rounders: Pandya and Shankar Seamers: Kumar, Shami, Bumrah, and Saini*** * Could be replaced by Rayudu or Pant ** Same as above ***Jadeja or Ashwin could sneak in as two fast bowling all rounders provide adequate cover but given English conditions, I'd prefer an extra proper seamer.
  3. If India gets blown away in World Cup and fails to to make it to the knock-outs, Shastri will lose his job. Kohli's grip on BCCI will be loosened but will keep the captaincy due to TINA. If India huffs and puffs to semi-final and get beaten by another team, Kohli's iron grip will stay intact. Shastri may get 6 months extension. If India wins the world cup, oh my. Shastri ain't going anywhere for a long long time.

    What is the plan of TM with respect to SHankar?

    Excellent prospect. Disciplined bowling, 110% contributor as fielder, and batting is getting steadily better and better. He was barely touching 125kmph in NZ but has been hovering around 130kmph in this series. He will get faster and stronger. Inclusion of in-form Hardik and Shankar will give captain so much flexibility.
  5. I have followed cricket for nearly 30 years. Without an ounce of a doubt, India's bowling has never looked this good. No need to feel dejected after one off game on a very flat surface. I was expecting Nagarkoti and Mavi to develop faster but still no panic. Reserves are in safe hands as long as Dravid is calling the shots.
  6. Here is the points table for 1992 World Cup. 2019 World Cup follows the same format but has one additional team. If you win 6 out of 9, you are in pretty good shape. 5 out of 9 wins, you may have to rely on favorable results from other matches.
  7. The other challenge for India is the schedule. India's first 3 matches are against RSA, Aus, and NZ. 3 very strong ODI teams in English conditions. India needs to ideally win 2 of first 3 or at least 1. You lose first 3, all of sudden you are under enormous pressure to win remaining matches to get to semi final.
  8. Has Dhoni announced publically that he will step away from international cricket after 2019 world cup? Give that every third ad during cricket matches features Dhoni, I still can't imagine him walking away. If India does well in the world cup, he could stick around for little bit longer like Tendulkar did after 2011 glory.
  9. No sympathy from my side. I hope all 15 of them get booked under section 307.
  10. That's some serious stuff. Life ban from cricket would appear trivial if these charges of attempted murder stick. 10 years prison under section 307.

    India Under 19 vs South Africa Under 19

    I don't think we will ever see the class of 2018 - MNP* - as far as India U19 fast bowling is concerned. *Mavi, Nagarkoti, and Porel.

    Should Kuldeep be exposed in the IPL?

    Might as well disband the league?? BCCI has no right to instruct any of the club owners to rest specific players. They can request owners to rest critical players in unconsequential games but if playoff spots are at stake, BCCI babu's will be told to f--k off.
  13. Tanveer barely touching 125 and drifting onto pads frequently.

    Rest of India vs Vidarbha

    Rajpoot 134.5, 139.3, 135.1, 135.2, 132.5, 136 Very docile pitch. Kishan collecting everything at knee level.
