    Ironhide reacted to New guy in India vs New Zealand 1st ODI - Mumbai - Oct 22nd, 2017   
    Your point is that all other batsmen should be criticized for one single failure  but Dhoni cannot be criticized for doing the same thing match after match after match. You are intentionally being dishonest enough to compare one single innings when it is clear Dhoni is being criticized because he does this every single match

    Still after having 10 years of experience and being know as one of the best finishers, I expect to get single of at least 90% balls. I don’t demand 4 or 6 of every ball, that’s Pandya’s job but scoring at strike rate of 60 is crime. Kohli is scoring almost at 100 SR at other end without taking any risk. Dhoni has lost his ability to do so and must work on that or retire with pride.

    As I said, if Pandaya did it ever single game he would be criticized too. Dhoni was criticized after a lot of leeway. Problem with Dhoni is, he is incapable of capitalizing even later nowadays

    Awesome strike rate of 58 by Dhoni. Get ready to watch a lot of Dhoni winning the world cup in 2011 videos on social media, have to say his marketing team is amazing.

    The examples of players you used. Kohli, Jadhav. if they do this match after match after match, they will be criticized too. Who in their right mind will criticize Kohli for having one slow innings?
     
    What do you say about an innings of 25 of 42 balls at a strike rate of 59? Worth it?

    Hate and bigotry from your mind ... I beg your pardon?
    They have hate and bigotry. They have ethnically cleansed minorities and call us hate and bigotry. They cleared kasmiri pandits from kashmir and we have hate in our hearts.
    I have one word for you ... stupid.

    nehra performed well in 75 percent of matches when he played ....so he cannot be compared to say Kapil dev, zahir khan even DHONI as even today he is being picked on HIS SKIILLS..even today he is better than BUMRAH or BHUVI for 4 overs in T20..yes his fielding is pathetic but he can be asked to bowl all his 4 overs in the first spell and take 2 wickets for 16 runs..
     
    he will pay in the third t20 and he will beat bhuvi or bumrah who ever plays or even both if they play..nehra has always surprised me with his skills and even pace that his old muscles can generate. 
     
    bhuvi bumrah are rare bowlers but umesh and shammi are genuine fast bowlers like NEHRA..Nehra is ultra skilled now and i wanted to see him play all three t 20's as I find himself an artist fast bowler ..he should be later considered for coaching along with ZAK as i believe zak srinath nehra are the fast bowlers who genuinely were good when they played for india ..bharat arun seems to be getting along well with shastri but i am not sure how good he is though i have to admit he has produced results.

    He deserved more than Nehra. Actually I feel sad that some of our heroes like Dravid, Sehwag, VVS Laxman and Zaheer did not get farewell matches. There were rumors that Dhoni didn't even pick phone call of Laxman when he was about to retire.

    Ironhide reacted to mishra in BCCI Acts on Kohli's Idea, Plans Special Pay For 'Only' Test Players !!!   
    Honestly, I am not! I am just trying to put things from POV of not  fan of either t20 or tests. If ICC has ruled that state can not meddle into financing affairs and individual boards should earn their own money then that should be it.
     
    I am fedup with idea every test fan somehow assume that test cricket is what cricket should be all about and test cricket stars have automatic right over earning of other formats.
     
    Test cricket is absolutely unsustainable. If it wasnt down to odis and t20s, one thing i can say for certain is that ground at Mumbai Central would have been sold to real estate developers to make high rises.
     
    Find out reason for test cricket is unsustainable and you have the answer.
     
    For example odi world CUP/t20 world cup, champions trophy etc makes massive money, But all revenues are feeding ICC and then xfred to various Boards. In test arena, ICC is sitting on pathetic excuse of not being able to conduct global test series, instead of taking the  revenues from Ashes, Border Gavaskar trophy, Gandhi Mandela Trophy and then redistributing.
     
    What I am saying is ICC should come up with some"Grand Slam Test Series" series like "Grand Slams in Lawn Tennis". But it hasnt got balls to utter such ideas to ECB or CA. Because it can only hire likes of Snake Manohar who can leech off on BCCI /Indian Corruption.

    BCCI sniping from Kohli's shoulder. Cricketers who excel in T20 format should not have to subsidize test cricketers. There is nothing 'wrong' (or right) about Suryakumar Yadav making more than Pujara. It just is. No need for income redistribution schemes.
     
    Test cricketers deserve a larger pay packet, and that increase should come from BCCI's own income. Not through penalizing those earn their wages in the IPL.

    Ironhide reacted to Trichromatic in BCCI Acts on Kohli's Idea, Plans Special Pay For 'Only' Test Players !!!   
    Thing is no one is saying that test shouldn't be more rewarding. But to make it more rewarding, you don't need to suppress T20. Simply pay higher salaries to test salaries without bringing IPL in the picture. That should still encourage players to play tests.
     
    For ex - say if
    IPL player auctioned for 6 crores
    IPL player gets 2 crores
    Test players earns 1 crores
    Test player gets 4 crores extra from IPL player to make total earning 5 crores.
     
    Instead of doing this BCCI can allow IPL player to keep their 6 crores and pay 7 crores to test players separately. It will encourage players to try for tests and it will actually reward players who are good in all formats. Players will try to become better player in all formats rather than being tuk tuk one trick pony.

    This is similar to what ICC was trying to do earlier with BCCI. Cut their shares from ICC revenues and give it to other boards and call it fair distribution.

    So why should a youngster lose money because Kohli says so. In tests there is a spot for 15. In IPL there is for 100's. Test format cannot stand on its own. Pujara is boring to watch. Either he improves his games or settle for less money is his business. Kohli has made millions and he wants younsters to pay for it. Shame.

    Absolutely disgusting news if true, BCCI stealing money from young T20 players for paying domestic players will be a infuriating and illogical  step, But this has been the thinking of most of the people in our country. On every online news about IPL or player salaries, you can read the level of vitroil posted by our fellow countrymen who diss and tell that such money should not be paid. Anyone making good money, being successful is looked at scornfully and few expletives are thrown towards the person or his family if they are in business.
     
    The thousand years of foreign rule followed by the socialist Nehruvian experiments with our country has really messed up the basic economic thinking of most of the general population, it will take us a thousand years to get out of this mentality.
