    Judging someone at the height of his career against someone who should be retired from internationals is just stupid 


    Op meant the current form and modern cricket, dhoni haven't retired yet so nothing stupid about it

    As i keep saying judge stats at the end instead of picking individual performances to back up a theory 

    This is irrelevant to topic as Anna said current dhoni or butler??? word CURRENT is important here as current dhoni is as good as first half of your username

    Good to see the 2 young quicks from India . Seeing the overseas performance of the team i think they should be fasttracked . 

    Its shocking that India are yet to find a replacement for someone as ordinary as Ishanth Sharma :facepam

    You may make fun of srilanka but they have actually won more than India away against the top 5 sides when the spinners are negated . Infact the indian record of 18 -1 is comfortably the worst since 2011 . India could have done with a pradeep i guess . 

    Get them in at worse theyll be another siraj but you might chance upon a decent bowler .

    Good to see you back man and yes India has horrendous away record absolutely true, its 23-2 actually outside asia since 2011, reason for that is lack of quality genuine quicks, inept captaincy and management see in the below pic, regarding ishant we have the replacement actually we have another genuinely quick pacer in domestics called as navdeep saini, constantly bowling 140-145k and getting wickets for fun he can easily replace  ishant but kohlis reliance on the seniors  is the obstacle, you have any genuinely quick pacer in u19???

    I like it that Indian fast bowlers, and their ability to bowl quick,  are being marketed nowadays.  


    This is important and motivates the next generation of pacers to bowl quick. It also encourages the existing pacers to continue bowling with effort and sustain  Opposition teams are put under psychological pressure even before the series when they know that they will have to play a group of good quick bowlers.


    I was really disappointed when someone of the stature of Zaheer made a public statement that Indian bodies are not meant to bowl fast ... just because he could not maintain his pace.


    Thankfully, the days of that regressive mindset are over.

    This is crucial when you compete against agrassive opposition like Australia in Australia, we need and should bank on bowlers who strive for pace to add  intimidation factor, having said that trend is shifting in india I guess Kerala alone has better and  quicker  fast bowlers than srilanka and Pakistan, warrior,thambi,km asif :aha:

    Standardising is not the answer, as the sameness will further reduce the interest factor.  In order to reduce the home advantage, tosses can be scrapped and the visiting team asked to decide to bat or bowl This will automatically reduce home teams tampering the pitch too much to gain advantage as well.

    This is getting lot of popularity, in every cricket discussion I am hearing it now, not a bad idea can be tried,  it also cut down luck factor.

    :cantstop: obviously he is not going to say we ll smash them in 3rd Test.. He is loyal to IPL money and his captain. 

    Abd is a legend :adore: and he has kept wickets against some some quality pacers, he knows what pace bowling is unlike certain someone whose fingers hurt while keeping express pace :laugh: :phehe:

    Bayya, he was the most assured batsman in that series from Pakistan’s side. I didn’t miss a minute from that series, you can take my word for it. He isn’t rushed by pace, full stop. Your argument here is a non entity. He does however have an issue with managing bounce due to his low back lift and lack of a complete coward torso, he plays the shot while the ball is still on the rise.


    Unlike you guys Babar doesn’t have any great batsman to seek advice from, at the age of 23 he’s carrying our lineup and batting at the prime position, that is 3. He’s young and learning, he’s worthy of critism but some people here are unnecessarily hating on the guy.


    No one has blocked Haris from achieving the heights he should have at this stage of his career except himself, his poor attitude towards fitness cost him 2 years of injury. He literally came back from a two year lay off last year, no one was blocking his place.

    He did look rushed by pace in that series, live in reality, those were some of the flattest tracks in aus.even then he looked rushed by cummins and starc man , I have followed that series  utmost interest too,  he was rushed for pace by umesh in ct and lockie in nz, both of those bowlers relys on pace not bounce, he has achieved success on low slow pitches in uae against helpless windies but was exposed on pacy surfaces of nz eng, he is still young can learn from his mistakes though.

    He was comfortable throughout that Aus series, so I don’t know what you are on about there. Sucks against pace yet he was assured against the fastest attack in world cricket, ok.


    He’s not the finished product, as most batsman are at 23-24. He needs to work on strike rotation, and his hitting ability. He has the levers and timing to improve on the latter.

    Woakes,wood,plunkett one of the fastest attack in the world and he struggled with avg. 24 in that series, he didn't look assured at all in Aus, scored some 30s and one 50 but clearly was struggling in that series that 100 at adelied I guess on one of the flattest pitch I have ever seen has saved him to be honest, nobody has said that he is a finished product but defiantly was hyped up to moon lol which he doesn't deserve, he can be dropped and can work on his game and than can make comeback, look at Harris, one of the best since inzy and yoyahana and all that hype around Babar blocked his place and that is pathetic.

    Babar Azam is a quality bat, and one poor series doesn’t change that. Babar at three and Haris at 4 is a quality partnership, and one of our best of all time. 

    He struggled  in england too, damn awful in this series, was not convincing in Aus until that 100 in deadrubber, lockie owned him with pace its pretty much sure he sucks against pace, was sucking the momentum out in ct final until fakar unleashed on spinnners, he also struggles to rotate strike which is crucial at num. 3 or 4, telling you right here he wll cost you matches against quality teams.

  11. Yes, always high on trying new pacers  especially genuinely fast pacers, bring in fresh blood let him inject some energy on the ground , you never know he may perform and lift the moral of the team which will help in odis having said that please for God's sake drop ishant sharma he has fooled us enough that's it now let siani play in place of him, rest fragile shami bring in bhuvi.






    Should be the attack
