  1. Ajinkya rahane has everything which dhawan don't, when hack like dhawan can open the batting for us why can't rahane?? a rock solid defense shot, can judge the length of the ball with utmost precision, insightful talent when it boils down to discipline and professionalism, calm,focused,introvert,gentleman and steady like an impregnable fortress, rahane is an ideal for opening slot in test matches that's what I feel, he do open the batting in Odis but struggles to maintain his strike rate but that's not the issue in testmatches, he also struggles against spinners in middle order but is quite comfortable against pacers, so guys whay can't he be the option?

  4. In dharmashala it was seam movement not swing, and by the time dhoni came to bat conditions eased out, kuldeep shielded him, he hid himself from suranga n pradeep n scored against perrera Mathews etc. he wud have struggled the same way as karthick if was promoted at num3 or 4 that day.

  7. See the question here is not about Anderson, since pitches here in India and sg ball are conducive to seam more than swing,Anderson tries to bowl quick with straight seam, he doesn't hold it with an angle to make it swing mostly in India, however question remains the same does conditions matter?? Coz I have seen sandip dharma, pk and David Willey etc. bowilg banana swing under hot conditions with only(or mostly) wind assisting it.
  8. Kookaburra balls, kookaburra balls offers low seam which only lasts for 20-25 over Anderson also tries to bowl quick there and use seam to its effect.
  9. I have seen David Willey swinging the ball miles in hot conditions when england last toured here, so I guess swing has more to do with wind and skills of the bowler, clouds might have very little to 0 effect on it.

    Commentary gems tracking thread

    Hello guys, I request posters here to track some of the gems and fun banters shared in the commentary box of international matches and share it here in this thread so that we wont miss out a chance to laugh on any of the humorous joke/banter/mistake in the commentary box lol. We can start with ongoing Eng vs Ind test series, I am sure when we have harbhajan and sanga in the box there will be some comedy. You can also share some from past international matches if you recall one.
