  1. Great ploy by the IT team From analysing dhoni `s strike rite the narrative has changed to "oh no!My childhood hero.pls don't retire".Really smart I say.I was thinking he will come up with Dhoni playing football or his daughter singing a song or he racing against 18 year to win a 100 metre dash.But this was quite different.

    It's the runs scored by the team. Do you really think Dhoni played any match winning innings in t20is .0 man of the match I have nothing to add

    Always felt u are one of the biggest fans of Yuvi here.Me too.Imo if not for cancer or that terrible knee injury he suffered in 2007 where he was adamant to go for surgery he had the chance to become the greatest odi cricketer or loi cricketer of India but unfortunately we rate him now on basis of what he could have been rather than what he was.

    How do you rate Virat after this SA series?

    Among top3 greatest Indian players .Sachin,Kapil and Kohli.Kohli can become the greatest if he dominates d world cup
  5. You never now.Dhoni is an expert in making easier chance look tougher.He will block block like he did in wi.Anyway I have no doubt without Virat,we wouldn't have won the series.
  6. I say it's tricky.Next in the line is Rahane,Dhoni and pandya.All are terribly out of form.
  7. I don't agree with messi 2011 comments.That guy is greatest in 21st century but what Kohli did in south Africa had more impact.Every Indian batsman except dhawan were inconsistent or poor but still he won it 5-1 for us.Unreal stuff.

    Is Rohit Sharma going the Yuvi or Robinho way?

    Always felt he didn't take bilateral as seriously as ICC tournaments

    Is Rohit Sharma going the Yuvi or Robinho way?

    Yes I just hope he didn't have d dreadful c.It seemed like he was getting his act together then came d nightmare.But he was magical when he turned up.His game was not refined but he was more exciting to watch than Kohli,Sachin or Dhoni(I know I will get a lot of slack) during 2005-2009.In 2007 t20wc he really looked unstoppable.

    Is Rohit Sharma going the Yuvi or Robinho way?

    I hope being gifted is not exactly on the basis of technique alone.We never saw Dada or Dravid or Dhoni at the age of 18 or 19.The guy was partying and skipping training.Once Dada said he would be first for a party and last for the practice. sometimes I used to wake him up for practice.Anways both Dada and dravid are better batsman(But in Odis I doubt because they never had d acceleration skill of yuvi).Acceleration is very vital in odi.Always felt he is very natural as an athlete. Won the national skating championship even before taking up a career in Cricket.But as u said he had technical loopholes.So definitely Dada and Dravid are better batsman (even in odi).But I feel if initial laid back attitude or cancer didn't affect him he would have had best stat after Kapil in Odis.And one more thing Aesthetically I find him more attractive than Dada,dravid and Dhoni(lol).Yes initially he struggles but on full flow he had d smoothest bat flow among Indian batsmen.

    Junaid Khan tampered the ball against England in CT

    Many would pounce on me but it doesn't look like ball tampering to me.

    India to host Sri Lanka later in 2017, may hamper SA tour

    Actually it's the best time to face.They have been on a slow decline since 2015.They are uncertain about the future of Steyn,abd etc.It's now or never for India.

    Bangladesh is more exciting than Srilank.At least their loudmouths and fake aggression make it exciting. Srilanka series is yawn.

    Is Rohit Sharma going the Yuvi or Robinho way?

    Nah.Yuvi was very fast between the wickets during his early days.He was very athletic in the field too before he became fat.The technique holes were in the test cricket.In Odis he should have scored more than Dada,Dhoni and Dravid.He was more gifted as an odi cricketer than them
  15. First of all excuse me for bringing in football here.I hope most sports enthusiasts know who Robinho was.Let's turn back to 1999 or 2000.I still remember it was the entry of 2 golden boys in 2 different sports.Santos who were non existent after Pele stunningly won the liga and Robinho the wonder boy led them to the title.Pele immediately said he is next me.He might surpass me.He was considered bigger than Messi or cr7.Now fast forward to 2017 he is considered a wasted talent.l though he did have moments of brilliance like copa 2007_LA liga 2005 etc but still a forgotten talent. Now coming to cricket,India who had so many ageing players were looking for a change.Dada was appointed d captain and he wanted to change d entire style and structure.India won the first under 19 world cup.A young kid(yuvi)from Punjab stole the limelight being the best player of the tournament. Sourav didn't wait long he was immediately drafted into ICC champions trophy and he stunned d invincible Aussies after knocking them out in his very first opportunity.Steve Waugh said "I didn't except an Indian kid to play this brand of cricket.It was our style".Now come to 2017 he has a big story but fact is he didn't improve his grit,temperament and defensive technique to make a test career makes him an underachiever though he had a remarkable odi career. Now they both are very similar to Rohit.Like them he started off with a bang in wt20 2007 on an absolute terrible pitch against South africa then it went on till 2008 cb series where only sachin had a better overall series.Critics were in awe of his natural talent and class then came the downhill.He kept failing.Dhoni finally gave him a chance as an opener in 2013 and he excelled in the role.Now he is a vital cog in the odi side but still he is yet to cement a spot in the test side.Also he has a great record but yet to dominate an ICC tournament.Now which way his career will turn out.The yuvi way or finally he would do justice to the gift he possess.
