  1. Looks like an exciting prospect, wish we would have speed guns in all our domestic games. Right now this assessment of pace is often reduced to an individual's assessment, while experienced viewers may be able to this it still leaves room for debate. Can't our board afford it?
  2. Siraj - not impressed

    Not a great debut for Siraj, hopefully he will not be cast aside. T20s certainly isn't the easiest of formats to make one's debut in.
  3. Left Arm seamers currently in Indian domestics

    Pawan Suyal was unlucky..struggled to find a place in Delhi ranji team and MI...he looked impressive in the few opportunities he got..
  4. Who are the big match players in indian team?

    God awful chokers huh?.. Nothing beats the self-righteous anger of the arm chair critic..
  5. Bhuvneshwar Kumar Fan Club

    Death overs were a perennial problem which he and bumrah seem to have addressed. His ability to keep runs down in the death overs is worth it's weight in gold. Shami keeps getting injured and he is now being preserved for tests anyway. Bhuvi along with bumrah represents are our best option
  6. I feel Jayasuriya and Anwar's innings at 4 & 6 were on feather beds against very weak bowling lineup from India, not sure of they ought to appear that high, surprised that only one Indian figures in the list surely Sachin's desert storm could have been included on the list
  7. Talent watch

    Nice post, hope Sandeep Warrier is also in the reckoning, while his statemate thampi has stolen a march on him I feel Warrier is also a strong prospect. Sanghwan is another one, the pacy Pawan Suyal's chance seems remote I am afraid.
  8. Pakistan fast bowling factory

    This is an exaggeration as rkt has mentioned chahar has tried to improve, not everyone is cutout for international cricket. His efforts to add pace must be recognized
  9. Cheteswar Pujara's overseas form

    Why is SA doubtful, he did well there last time and SA team was better then. Agree about England and maybe NZ. I believe he will be fine in Australia because even if he has some weakness against Lyon (not sure if what you are alluding to is technical or some other aspect that you may have noticed) he is capable of getting through a bad spell and then capitalise.
  10. BP 11 squad for warm up game against NZ

    Dhawal kulkarni again?.. Someone sure is desperate to resurrect his India career, another baffling aspect is how Sandeep warrier has been ignored again.. He could have been tried instead of kulkarni who is unlikely to get better and at his current level is not good enough
  11. Azhar & Eden Gardens

    There was a series in South Africa after this one where he made 130 odd in Capetown, his partnership in that match with Tendulkar was awesome to watch
  12. Its funny how often that happens, Avesh Khan finds it hard to get into his Ranji side and got few games in IPL, Khejoriya who performed brilliantly in the local t20 competition couldn't get one game for MI, nathu singh also has been overlooked, there are other cases that I may be missing, I am guessing the criteria for most domestic teams rarely zeroes in on raw pace and potential
  13. Shastri wants Tendulkar as batting consultant

    Dude as much as I hate what has happened to Kumble, I find it hard to believe that any of our current cricketers would deliberately play bad to settle scores. Kumble anyway wasn't removed, he resigned, which he may have done eitherway. We lost, they played better, time to move on
  14. A fast bowler India might have had

    Yes he was supposed to be quick, another one spoken about highly was Abey kuruvilla who was called rapid in the earlier part of his career, many say that by the time he made his debut he was on the decline. Contrast Mumbai bowling scene then with today when we have the likes of ultra slow sandhu opening the attack

    Bowlers with genuine pace have been rare in India (atleast till recently) so it is natural that when one emerges, they become the favourites of fast bowling enthusiasts. I don't think anyone is claiming that they are world beaters and I agree that there is more patience shown towards these bowlers than with trundlers but that is because they have the potential to perform for India in internationals. Unadkat or Kulkarni or Aravind don't seem like bowlers who will win matches for India at that level, this is borne out by their performances or the lack of it , in the opportunities that they have got, so I guess that is why there is less excitement when they deliver ( not including bhuvi here as I feel that he now has the right ingredients to be quite good)
