    I fit the role of 4th bowler India wants for WC: Umesh

    India wants a brainless, run leaker in the 4th bowling spot?

    yes once aggarwal came in (key contributions in bat and the field)- Australia couldn't even touch us

    shikhar dhawan was virtually a rookie in champions trophy 2013 and ended up being player of tournament - totally agree- a punt on someone like shaw when batting order currently a mess not the worst thing. Similarly situation happened in CT2013- batting was a mess and took punt on rohit and dhawan
  4. with the current debacle caused by protecting Dhoni, I'm sure Mithun Minhas is confident about his chances.
  5. poor guy never got a chance... unfair to write someone off in ODIs until you've given them over at least 350 ODI appearances. Only then can one make a balanced judgement. Good on Rahane for calling out this blatant injustice. Entitled and overrated people like R Pant and KLR please take note.
  6. KLR and Pant have both been shockingly handled, and guess who is the main beneficiary?

    Caution Advisory:We lost with a full strength team

    can't be full strength without KLR also KLR and Pant need full backing and a run of games to be their full strength version of themselves

    Why has Bumrah become so bad?

    personally I still think he's been over bowled recently- that Australia test series was brutal on all bowlers. I would like to have seen Bumrah and Shami rested more.
  9. again disgustingly dropped, if any player in history was given one match at a time to prove himself, would he have ever made it?

    How can you waste 90 balls on such a surface?

    I've been calling out Rohit's tuk tuks for a while- no one seems to care as he has so much hype and immunity behind him. KLR makes one bad mistake and it seems to have devastating consequences for his career. As far as I am concerned, KLR has more talent than Rohit....so not sure where all Rohit's backing comes from.
  11. good to see that KLR has learned from Dhoni well, in that he is prioritising his personal accumulation of runs above the team aims.

    To whoever wants a full scale war with pakistan !!!

    Velu, you never fail to surprise me. Every time I lose hope in you, you often redeem yourself with some great posts.
  13. I have had a crush on her for a few years- it's recently started to wane. I still would though.

    Say sorry to Maahi!!!!!!

    even Ashish Nehra is capable of a good SR on such tracks...lol
  15. Argument frequently cited, Bhuvi despite not conceding runs gives away more runs by not taking wickets but Umesh saves runs by taking wickets, despite leaking runs. Well congratulations, the merits of this theory was on its best display today. Bhuvi would have no doubt finished the job today.
  16. mancalledsting

    Umesh takes wickets, Bhuvi only saves runs

    Umesh is the next realistic contender in line after Bhuvi (if you consider Bumrah and Shami the other two certs). Otherwise who else you gonna pick? Unadkat? Khaleel? Siraj? Thakur? And believe me, in the Bhuvi out debate, there are ICFers who have cited Umesh's greater wicket taking prowess.
  17. I think tolerance generically has to unite against intolerance generically. I certainly wouldn't go as far to generalise to a religion as this prejudices innocents who belong to that community.
  18. I think you need to look slightly closer to home.

    possible also laziness at the end of a long season

    Rohit Sharma- Highest Run getter in T20I

    Rohit, Guptill and Shoaib Malik...possibly the three finest cricketers to have ever played the game. True worth of t20 format represented by these timeless icons.
  21. mancalledsting

    Is Rohit-Dhawan pair ideal for T20s?

    no should have moved on a long time ago.
  22. mancalledsting

    Examples of Dhoni’s selflessness? Genuine question

    Once when Chahal bowled a bad delivery, Dhoni shouted “nahiin” at the top of his voice. If he was selfish he wouldn’t have said it so loud and used so many mitochondria in the process. Pure selflessness at its best.

    Never leave your crease with MS Dhoni behind the stumps! - ICC

    Sadly I can't take the glory for this one either-accurate term though, credit to whoever came up with it.
  24.
