    Ranji trophy 2018-19

    Any videos of Mavi's spell?
  2. I hate frequent comparison between captains but this is such a good contrast from previous skipper. I just couldn't believe it when BCCI granted his wish to skip India's tour of Sri Lanka. This is the Mendis series prior to India's recent domination over SL. SL went on to win it 2-1. Dhoni-Duncan were so passive as India got pummeled overseas series after series. If Srini Mama wasn't in charge, Dhoni's era as a test skipper wouldn't have lasted half as long.

    Dhawan/Rohit Beat Sehwag/Sachin (ODI)

    Dhawan in ODI is still a lock.
  4. It's great to see Indian cricket cares so much about test cricket. Credit to coaches at grass-root levels too who keep hammering the importance of doing well in longer format of the games to young kids. This will be music to Pujara's ears who was earlier singled out for now showing enough intent.

    Pravin Amre - Another lost talent in the 90s

    Kind of hard done by. If I remember correctly, he played couple of domestic seasons in RSA.

    Siraj - not impressed

    Definitely deserves more opportunities. Was struggling with his line against the left handers but atleast didn't come across as a trundler. He will get better once captain throws his weight behind him. Dravid thinks very highly of him.

    Dhoni uses the Word CH***ye......Rare moments

  8. Ten years from now, we will all look back at middle order of Dhoni-Kaarthik-Rayudu and laugh at it the way we used to laugh at bowling line-up of Mohanty-Prasad-Kuruvilla etc. The only difference is we have inventory of 10 better batsmen right now but back then stock levels were pretty barren.
  9. Gill the reserve opener will be on bench thru out the NZ tour while Rayudu, Dhoni, and Kaarthik will be working really hard to maintain their 20 average at 70 strike rate.

    What are ur replacement for middle order junk

    Pant, Gill, Hardik, Krunal/Jadhav Shaw as backup opener KL should be kept around. He needs to get his head sorted out.

    Rayudu reported for suspect action

    Perfect match for India's saviour. Poor fielding Wasted a review Second ball duck Got reported for chucking Watch out elderly people of Hyderabad. Ambati going to be super pissed when he gets back.
  12. Agarkar calling it as he sees. Dhoni is the biggest hole in the middle order and should be the first issue addressed. How is Kohli putting up with this intentless fossil is beyond me? Just remember what early elimination from world Cup did to Dravid's captaincy legacy.
  13. Who is Rayudu's godfather? How did he become an international player? Limited player with crappy attitude.
  14. Most definitely.
  15. ....example of you can't polish a turd. All that fake bravado, west indianism, and machoism would be tolerable if this guy was a record breaking cricketer. He is a f**king drama queen and any decent coach would have asked him to pull his head out of his a$$ by now. and KL Rahul, another train-wreck. From second incarnation of Kohli to a certified social network douche-bag within 12 months. His international career is hanging by a thread. India has an assembly line of batsmen ready to replace him.
  16. You can only beat the XI players put in the field against you. Nobody held a gun to CA's head and told them to drop two wankers.

    Border Gavaskar Trophy 2018 ratings

    My ratings - Considering impact, stats and conditions. Aggarwal - 10 - Will shock many but his inclusion was the series changing move. I have a soft spot for openers as they have toughest job in test cricket. Maturity beyond years. VJ - 1 - One decent knock Rahul - 1 - One decent knock Pujara - 9.5 - Loses perfect score due to average outing in Perth. Kohli - 10 - I will give the brat perfect score for winning 3 tosses. Kidding aside, 8 as batsman and 9 as captain. Rahane - 2 - Big words poor productivity Vihari - 6 - Assured presence. Need to kick on and get bigger scores. Jadeja - 7 - Bowled as expected, batting is definitely improving. Ashwin - 5 - Valuable contribution in Adelaide but fragile Pant - 8 - Average keeping but solid with bat. Had to bat with hopeless tail or would have ended up with better stats. Bumrah - 10 - The main reason behind India's emergence as a bowling power house. Shami - 8 - Performed as expected. Hopelessly irresponsible as a tail ender Ishant - 8.5 - Enjoying best phase of his career. Yadav U. - 0 - Let the captain down badly on the most bowlers friendly pitch. Yadav K. - 7 - Give him the cushion of runs and he will run thru sides regardless of conditions. Very excited for him.
  19. India have won their last 3 test series in WI.
  20. Yup as many have said, A tours are the biggest factor. Hopefully, the trend of 4 A-series, 2 home/2 Away, will continue.

    Kohli's captaincy watch thread

    Was made to look worse than what he was in England and RSA due to wretched toss luck. Has looked pretty sharp on field in Australia because batsmen have given bowlers decent totals to work with and there wasn't any 4th innings pressure in 3 of 4 matches. There is no excuse for major selection blunders. That's just amateur level stuff.

    Who was true batting MoM for India in 2011 WC final?

    Gambhir prevented the defeat but Dhoni took us home. 19-20 ka farq either way.

    Rishabh Pant - Generation shift

    Excellent post, Ravi. Let's not forget the last U19 batch - Mavi, Shaw, Gill, and Nagarkoti. Fearless talent.

    Dhawan is A+

    Saw this article on rediff where BCCI is thinking about promoting Pujara to A+ contract category. This is a top tier which pays 7 crore per year. Also noticed Dhawan in that category. I don't know how he ended up there. Primary Skill - Batting Test Cricket: Below Average ODIs: Really good. T20: Above average Secondary Skills Bowling: Non existent Fielding: Safe out fielder Leadership/Captaincy potential: None Kohli deserves to be in top tier. Bhuvneshwar has had injury troubles but I don't have any issues with him being there. Rohit has no business in this category either. I am sure Bumrah will get into top tier and deservedly so.
