    How fast was David Johnson?

    @express bowling bro confession time. I was a fan of Manoj Prabhakar's bowling action when I was a kid. Thank God that changed when Srinath came on the scene. I was a trundler fan before becoming a fan of phaasst bowlers

    How fast was David Johnson?

    Remember those loopy inswinging yorkers of Manoj Prabhakar? Flight and drift
  3. This kid has got a strong action. Bowling action is a bit like a left handed Waqar.
  4. This is a huge blow. We lost one good swing bowler we had because of this dumbass team management and the support staff. Why did he play Ireland and England ODI's if he was not fully fit?
  5. The "aggravation" of Bhuvneshwar Kumar's lower-back injury during the third ODI has left BCCI officials back in India infuriated. Bhuvneshwar had missed the first two ODIs with a stiff back, but was selected for the series-decider during which he aggravated his condition and was not named in the squad for the first three Tests in England. The selection meeting for the Tests took place the day after India lost the ODI series. Bhuvneshwar bowled seven overs for 49 runs and no wickets in the decider, and also dropped a catch. An important member of the side, responsible for 42% of the wickets India took in their last Test series in England, Bhuvneshwar has been struggling with a back issue since the start of the IPL where his workload was managed. Even before the IPL, Bhuvneshwar sat out of the Nidahas Trophy and the one-off Test against Afghanistan to manage the injury. Some BCCI officials are incensed that he was risked in an ODI when an important Test series, in which Jasprit Bumrah's participation was also in doubt, was around the corner. At the toss, Virat Kohli said the decision to bring Bhuvneshwar back for the decider was taken to given him some game time. "Some tactical some because the guys haven't got a game so far," Kohli explained the three changes to the XI. "So Bhuvi and Shardul Thakur come in for Umesh [Yadav] and Sid [Siddarth] Kaul. And KL Rahul misses out. Dinesh Karthik replaces him at No. 4. He has done well at that spot, and we just wanted to have a guy in the middle overs who can be versatile and improvise a little. Yeah Dinesh was tactical, and the other two guys because they haven't got a game yet." The natural question that arises is: if the performance of Umesh and Kaul was not an issue, why did India not let Bhuvneshwar rest and be in his best condition for the Tests? In the previous ODIs the spinners had kept India in the game after rampaging starts by England. At Lord's, where England won, Umesh and Kaul came undone in the death overs against the No. 8 batsman David Willey, who scored the fastest fifty by an England batsman against India. Between them, Umesh and Kaul had bowled 37.5 overs for 254 runs and three wickets. The BCCI officials are enraged at the management of the injury. They are raising questions. If the same injury has reared up again, why is the yo-yo test, which Bhuvneshwar cleared, the ultimate word on fitness? And once the BCCI press release uses the word "aggravate" and not "resurface", according to one of the officials, the team management is conceding he was not fully fit and was risked for the ODI. The officials want clarity on the part played by physio Patrick Farhart and trainer Shankar Basu in the management of Bhuvneshwar. http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/24130562/bcci-officials-miffed-india-handling-bhuvneshwar
  6. This team management doesn't give a **** about managing fast bowler's workload.
  7. That was out. Idiot Chahal.
  8. Chahal no ball Was that a stumping?
  9. Which one of you guys did this? Dhoni shouldn't be retired from Tests, coz he still cam play Tests (but in white ball)...." chortles Deep. I see what you did there...
  10. Another gem from cricinfo Guru: "MSD is the only bankable batsman in the country who can play with tailenders. That is why his role is very important in WC2019." Well, we might be about to find out how true that still is"
  11. Dotendra waiting to unleash in 50th over.
  12. Dotendra has even more reason to lunge now.
  13. Hope Dhawan and Kohli get out now. Want to see our great middle order bats Dhoni and Raina tested again.
  14. Following cricket since the 90`s but never been this frustrated. What will it take to drop Dhoni and Raina? Poor Rahul
