    All I want tomorrow is

    I'd be surprised if Shami, Umesh, Bumrah, Ishant played 50 balls combined among them.. So the current pair is our last hope. However improbable it might be they have got to get us tha target or at least within 20 runs from the target.
  2. Vihari looks solid.But cant believe we are one wicket away from completely bundled out. What a long tail we have..!!

    Despite all DK bashing the guy delivers in crunch time

    DK has been great iin t20s since the one off t20 in WI. He was very good in Nidhas series (not only final but the entire series),ipl and even in the WI t20 series. He is the experienced finisher we needed in the t20 setup. He should always be in the starting lineup in t20s. But ODIs are different. Longer time to think, Confusion on his role, Dhoni factor, better available players might play a role in his downfall there. So he should be in odis only if dhoni is not available and shd play at 6 or 7. Otherwise no

    Favorites of the 2019 WC?? (Poll)

    I wouldn't count out Pakistan in England.
  5. The heck Jadhav.. If you just gonna do dot ball and single why come out at all with handicap of running. Few slogs from taileneder would have sealed this game already.
  6. I don't know whats worse? A defeat at the hands of Bangladesh in a final? or India win, then media all over hails "Great win through two experienced batsmen's guidance (DK, Dhoni) at the middle and the fantastic finish by two all rounders at the end" and we stuck with them forever
  7. First I laughed at the thought, but I am slowly fearing Rahane might be back at no 4 sooner
  8. Man, what happened to Bhuvi. he used to be a decent bat. now looks completely clueless
  9. Pandya and Jadav, the only middle order guys who could hit at 90SR are unfit. This is some surreal **** in our batting order.
  10. Hopefully this is the last time we saw DK as pure bat in ODI. Guy just cant seem to scale the 40s and he bats at no.4 As I'm typing Dhoni also gone. Just great.
  11. Its amazing to see how consistently DK's shots are going straight to fielders.Special talent indeed Anyway, he scored more than his average. Done his part.Expect him to get out soon.
  12. Bangladesh winning will be good for Asia Cup popularity.So thats one silver lining. And for heavens sake dont chsse in a tournament final if you win toss,like EVER.
  13. Dhoni time... Run rate for next 20 overs wont cross 3.25
  14. DK inside 10 overs doesnt inspire confidence. Actually I fear the worst. I feel like our fringe middle order is going to have a collective meltdown and Dhoni is either going to get us home in the last overs or top score with 50sr in a losing cause. Either way, this innings is going to justify his selection and "prove his worth" as a batsman and hes gonna stick with us for years.
  15. I expect a closer contest than everyone thinks. Might even lose to Bangla if we are careless. If we win toss we have to Bat first. Afg match proved batting second might become a problem if the openers gone quickly. Fizz is in good form.
  16. Like every 90s kid, its Sanath Jayasurya

    In the final, we MUST bat first if we win the toss

    We cant rely too much on openers. If they get out early, then its doom for us even when chasing about 225. So I would also vouch for bat first. Even if the openers fail, our mid order can scrap their way to a 250 wgoch can be defendable jn a final with three spinners and bumrah

    Jadeja missed a golden opportunity of becoming a hero

    If anything, its a blessing in disguise. Tie was the fair result, Afg got at least something to cheer after their wondetful performances and more importantly we are spared from Jadeja being hailed as the all rounder we were all craved for.
  19. Till Dhoni is there, DK should be used only in backup plans in ODIs, that too a no.6 batsman or finisher or reserve keeper. He doesnt cut out for a proper middle order bat in ODIs.Guy struggling to score a fifty, let alone a hundred, cant be playing at Top 5. Since no 6 is currently taken up by Jadav(whom im not yet convinced fully as his bowling would be smashed in England) and 7 by Pandya/Jadeja type all rounders, there is simply no place for him in the starting 11. Ideally Rahul should play in place of him,esp in the finals. However, since he averaging around 50 since his comeback and our team managaement would ve impressed by such number, may be he will be retained in the starting 11 at least till WI series I suppose.
  20. In final, Rohit and Dhawan should be back in place of DK and Pandey, considering Dhoni is not going anywhere. Im afraid Jaddu will be retained as theres no decent no 7 available.
  21. A deserving result at the end. This innings showed what our batsmen are really made of. Rahul, while on a good touch, can throw awy his wicket anytime. Rayudu, Im afraid, is here to stay for a while. DK is good enough for safe 30-40 runs with 75sr.Nothing more. Should never be a in starting 11. Dhoni is hopeless against spin.Even if he had been given not out he wouldnt have survived long. Pandey is very inconsistent. Jadeja is not an all rounder, let alone finisher. Stupid shot to play when 1 off 2 needed. Reminded me of the Bangla t20 where they screwed their chase against pandya.
  22. I dont agree that Pak CT win was fluke. You dont win agsinst SA, SL, Eng, Ind on trot by fluke. Lucky may be (SL's pathetic catching,rain vs SA, Kohli's blunder at toss, Bumrah no ball) but no fluke. they won fair and square.

    Afghanistan vs Bangladesh

    Two close matches for Afg where they came so close but missed out due to smaller mistakes. Hope they learn from this experience. Sad to see them out of the tournament but they can surely held their head high.
  24. For the sake of exposing our exploding middle order, I wish Pak to score 275+
  25. I feel whoever bats second will win tomorrow. Pak done well is a relatively tougher 250+ chase at slow Abu Dhabi yesterday. So they will do better in chasing in Dubai, esp Malik who has been having a special liking for India. Also, India is not exactly equipped to set the world on fire while batting first. So unless Rohit is on crazy 200 mode, I dont see us setting a target of more than 270.
