He has a below 5 economy rate, despite bowling in the death overs every match, and he is right in the top half of pacers in strike rate. BK is in the bottom tier in terms of taking wickets and middle of the pack in economy rate; he seems to be a death overs specialist. Pandya has a marginally better economy rate and a better strike rate than BK, but he isn't as good of a death bowler/never bowls in the death. Umesh is a comparable wicket taker to Bumrah, but he has one of the worst economy rates going at over 6.3. Aussies and Kiwis seem to have a lot of good pacers, but their spinners are expensive. Saffers and Poms have some good pacers and a good spinner each. Padosis seems to have 1 good pacer and 1 good spinner. Lankans, Deshis, and Windies all seem to be missing good pacers.

    With Saha in doubt, Pant must play England

    Even Saha is 33, fast approaching 34. If we are looking for a stop gap for a single series or even a few Test matches in this series, Ohja is a decent bet. I think DK drops too many chances, and it's confirmed Parthiv does. Pant, of course, is ideal, but it doesn't seem he is being fast-tracked into the team. It seems management will only insert him after more seasoning in Ranji and LOIs.

    "Indian question" in South africa

    Watch the documentary by Lauren Southern on South African Farmlands
  7. I wonder why stereotyping increased in the last 4 decades?
  8. Both quality and quantity are part of malnourished. Many great athletes eat a lot more than an average Indian athlete, let alone an average Indian. The same with an average American compared to an average Indian. Athletes like Michael Phelps, JJ Watt, and The Rock all have something like a 10,000 calorie diet. I doubt most Indian athletes eat that much. In India it common to expect 2 meals a day, in the US 3 meals a day. Neither are GMO fruits/vegetables bad

    When will torture of Raina end??

    Our middle order hardly ever gets exposed, so it will take a string of failures by Raina to actually get dropped again. Rohit, Dhawan, Kohli usually finish matches by themselves, playing the bulk of the innings(especially in ODIs) so the chances taht Raina, Pandey, et al get exposed in a bilateral series is less. The same was the case with Rahane and Yuvraj. These guys hardly ever came to bat, so team management hardly got a look at how unfit they were for the middle order.
  10. Growth = poverty reduction In the last 2 years, almost 50 million people have escaped extreme poverty. 50 million is about equal to the population of South Korea!
  11. I think we should at least determine a handful of the sports and focus funds on them: maybe Boxing, Wrestling, Shooting.
  12. I don't mind Raina or DK or Pandey, they can all compete for a spot in the ODI side, I guess, but what else can Rahul do to get in the playing XI? The guy deserves a run at #4 for at least a series or two to see if he is the real deal. If he fails in those, by all means drop him, but right now it's hard to make heads or tails of his continued bench-warming.
  13. Test cricket with 70% approval and T20 with 92% approval. No mention of ODIs it looks like. Hopefully they are also still popular and weren't cannibalized by T20s. ICC ruined the quality of ODIs by trying to turn them into extended T20s. T20s are fine as there are, and ODIs were best in 2011 era where 6 rpo was actually an achievement. Bring back 1 new ball rule to bring reverse swing and spin back into the game and restore some semblance of balance to the format.

  15. I am hoping the pitches are more similar to CT 2013 for WC 2019. There was good help for the spinners, which was why Jadeja topped the wickets column. If there are flatter pitches, Australia will be favorites.

    Centre drops Tamil, 16 other languages from teacher test

    It's not exactly my idea, as SCB wanted to convert all Indian languages into Roman script( along with making Hindi the national language). I just think that choosing a pan Indian national script would be a safer way to avoid the language politics. There were regional variants of the script ie Tamil-Brahmi probably with some different sounds/letters, but I am guessing that there are some sounds that it didn't have. For those, I suppose, one can insert the letter/sound ('ळ') from the other language directly into the new Indian Standard Brahmi script. Since the idea is to teach students the script from a young age at school, their brains would still be able to learn the 'ळ' sound and they would be able to make the sound, should they ever decide to learn to speak Marathi. If they never learn Marathi, they would still be able to make the sound, they just wouldn't ever use it.
  17. This I agree with from my own experience as well. Similar, to @Ranvir I have a distant cousins(2nd or 3rd) who all were born/raised in the UK, their parents are 5'5 and 5'0, but all four are above 6 foot tall. They are all strict vegetarians as well (and pharmacists oddly enough). The thing is in my opinion, people don't understand how malnourished the subcontinent is in general. It is probably the most malnourished part of the entire planet. Here is an example: The subcontinent men/women basically come at the bottom of grip strength, which can be used to predict forearm strength, in the world. This is despite the high testosterone levels. That implies to me people just don't have access to enough food, which they do have in the UK, US, et al

    Who should replace Pujara at no.3 in test cricket?

    KL Rahul is the natural replacement if Pujara is dropped. I think he was forced into the opener role because the paucity of positions available in our playing XI. The truth is, we should be looking for 2 new openers soon anyway (unless Vijay regains great form this overseas leg).
  20. Try to play all three of Sundar, Rahul, Pandey in this match. This is the kind of match where noob-players get experience. There is no reason for established players to stuff their stats against lower tier sides.
  21. https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/women-hiring-to-dip-over-maternity-leave-may-cause-1-2cr-job-loss-in-fy19-as-some-cos-find-paying-for-26-weeks-prohibitive-finds-study/articleshow/64739424.cms Called it before. Stupid BJP thinks too much like Congress. Interfering directly in the job market with hair-brained schemes, which hardly anyone outside of middle class-metro citizens even care about. The size of job loss stated here is an upper estimate. I don't know if it would be that high, but all those people who do lose jobs because of this scheme will be angry.
  22. Godji has spoken. Too bad he forgot Shami. Is that a sign that Shami is being overlooked for the England tour due to fitness?
  23. Here's to hoping we see Jadhav's bowling from weird angles really soon. He has a golden arm; he always takes wickets.

    Centre drops Tamil, 16 other languages from teacher test

    After all the acrimony near the time of independence, "leaders" should've gotten creative and pushed for a national script instead of a national language (especially after they dropped the ball and didn't take Ambedkar's advice to adopt Sanskrit as a national language, which also had support from "the South" as well by the way). Needless to say, "leaders" of that era gave themselves Bharat Ratnas for accomplishing nothing and kicking problems down the curb for others in the future to deal with. A suitable national script would've been Brahmi, which many languages were written in before. It could have been easily included in textbooks, you learn your mother tongue in both Brahmi and state-script and then you are good to go. Schools could've been filled with textbooks to learn all the different languages of India, through the Brahmi script! Anyone who knows the Roman alphabet,(ABCD) has a much easier time to learn other languages using the same script.

    What Has Happened to Mighty Australia?

    England got much better, that is part of the reason. People should look at the England teams in the 2011/2015 WC or 2013 CT, there were so many players who shouldn't have even been near an ODI side.
