  1. Please move to next if not in the playing 11 Batsman: Rahul, Rahane, Rohit, Dhawan Bowler: BK, Bumrah, Yadav Fielder: Parthiv, Karthik
  2. KM Asif - 90 mph Kerala Pacer

    I hope he's drafted in the national side within a year. He's looks genuinely quick.
  3. Bat: Kohli Bowler: BK Fielder: Pandya
  4. Can't depend on Shami.

    He's probably fit less than 25% of times since WC2015. At other times I'm not sure if its the lack of rhythm, injury/niggles or just that he is hesitant to give 100%. His run-up is quite different these days.
  5. Can't depend on Shami.

    Shami looked the least threatening of all bowlers. Bowled in the low-mid 130s with hardly any seam movement. His short balls had no venom. At his height, he needs to bowl at some min pace to get that nip off the surface. I'd drop him and bring in Ishant. Ishant hasn't done bad lately. At least he'd be quicker and get some more bounce on these pitches.
  6. The pitch seems to have eased out. I don't think these bowlers have got it in them to dismiss SA in the second innings considering the pitch and with the lead already having crossed 100. We needed someone like Johnson to make things happen and get back into the game. It's about when SA's gonna declare now.
  7. Bowling Speeds in SA series

    So none of our bowlers managed to cross even 90 mph. That's a bit disappointing
  8. Ishant would have been a good choice here. Shami's struggling. A warm up match could have been useful to determine if Shami had good rhythm
  9. Shami looks to be the weakest out there. Pace is down and accuracy ain't great either
  10. Batsman: Pujara Bowler: Shami Fielder: Saha
  11. Brett Lee is my favorite and Starc among current players. Akhtar and Bond were fun to watch. Steyn's action is so smooth Bond ended up with perennial back issues and his mixed action might have some role in it. Having said that his action looked beautiful.
  12. can someone please share a web link for the match?
  13. Yadavs bowling some poor deliveries here. Struggling both in line and length in this match. Should at least test the batsmen with some well directed yorkers or bouncers. Even Pandya has bowled better.
  14. Excellent bowling by Shami this over
  15. Lol England all over SA. 6 wickets for 50 odd runs.
  16. 3 consecutive sixes by Stokes. 2nd one brings his hundred
  17. Stokes is probably one of the best in the world on the pull/hook shot
  18. Another terrific innings by Stokes under pressure against a quality pace attack
  19. Poor bowling by Yadav in the first innings. There were hardly any instances where he bowled 3-4 consecutive deliveries in a channel around off stump. Kept sliding down leg or bowled short and wide. No well directed bouncers too. No aggression when the batter hit him. Just a languid smile. I think the first wicket got to his head. He just kept looking for that LBW and in the process ended up being too straight. I feel he's a kind of player who needs a taskmaster. The bowling coach should push him in the nets. Hope he turns it around in the second innings.
  20. Brilliant bowling by Kumara. Gets Pujara
  21. Too quick to handle

    Definitely the most exciting bowler to watch. There were times when you could sense fear in the batsmen's eyes LOL Ganguly for example. Was fun to watch. Brett Lee at his peak and MJ came close.
  22. Kumara generating good pace in this spell. Almost gets Mukund
  23. Enjoying Pandya's batting and his temperament here
  24. Haha Looks like Pandya's admonishing Shami. Shami cant resist pulling.
  25. Has been an overdose of subcontinental test matches. I want to see these guys battle it out in overseas conditions on faster pitches.
