    SUMO got a reaction from someone in Feroz Shah Kotla to be renamed as Arun Jaitley Stadium   
    Q: Was arun jaitley a cricketer? 
    A: How many centuries feroz shah has scored along with bradman?
     
    Q: what's his contribution for cricket?
    A: served as DDCA president for 14 years during 1999-2013. Viru, gauti, virat, ashish, aakash all debuted in this period and they hail jaitley's contribution.
     
    Q: why not make a new stadium to name it on arun jaitley?
    A: He got the stadium renovated with modern facilities, increasing it's capacity with world class dressing rooms.
     
    Q: Then, Name it on a famous cricketer.
    A: I agree. But that's the different issue. 
    I will prefer Arun Jaitley's name anyday over Feroz shah, an invader, iconoclast, temple destroyer, jihadist.

    Batsmen who have both good front foot and good back foot games, have much better chances of doing well all over the world.

    And Shubman Gill fits the bill. He is obviously a top batting talent as everyone knows.

    He comes across as a very international-type batsman with some old school qualities.

    Pluses ----

    • Plays the ball under his eyes.
    • Has a rather early back and across trigger movement.
    • Gets a lot of time to play quick bowlers.
    • Decisive foot work, both front and back.
    • Good front foot game. Drives sublimely ... flicks delicately and very fine ... defends decisively.
    • Good back foot game. Fierce and powerful cutter who can cut even close to his body ... pulls strongly ... defends decisively on the back foot too.
    • Has an idea about his off stump. Leaves leavable deliveries.
    • Can rotate the strike with spinners operating.
    • Has the gift of timing.
    • Has the power game for his age and can hit big shots and powerful ground shots.
    • Seems very calm and unhurried at the crease while batting.
    • Is very consistent at FC level and has shown both the hunger for runs as well as the ability play big innings.  Has done really well for India-A.


    We don't know ----

    • How he is against genuine swing bowling in places like England.
    • How he would tackle quick pacers on the bouncy tracks of SA, Australia. ( Was playing Nortje, bowling quick, with awesome ease in India )
     
    Stats ----
     
    FC

    Matches. 13
    Runs. 1348
    Average 75
    SR. 76
    100s. 4
    50s. 7

    Average 47

    He is someone who needs to be invested in immediately and given a long rope in international cricket while making his spot secure for 15 tests and 25 ODIs.

    Looks like the complete package as a batsman.

    Firuz Shah Tughlaq razed down Puri's Jagannath temple, glad his name has been removed. I am not one of those who will support glorification of barbarian invaders. He was one of the most rabid Islamist dogs to rule Delhi, a cruel, ruthless, intolerant, bloodthirsty despot even when accounting for Muslim rulers of that era (or any era). Hate *ers like him, history can not be changed but the least we owe to our ancestors is not to glorify their tormentors be it FST, Khilji, Babur, Aurangzeb, Vasco Da Gama or Robert Clive.
     
    Don't like Jai Italy, he was as corrupt and devious as they come, and a Congressi mole in BJP. I would have preferred it being named after the first Delhi cricket superstar Bishan Singh Bedi (like in tennis where they name showpiece courts after Billie Jean King, Arthur Ashe, Rod Laver, Nadal etc) or even a non-cricketer like GOAT Dhyan Chand....stadiums named after our great sportsmen is more fitting. 99% of our cricket administrators and babus are crooks who only deserve to be shot in their genitalia. Jai Italy was an awwal number ka chor/dhongi, yeah he passed away recently and all that **** but truth is undeniable....he doesn't deserve this. Remove all these admin/politician names from our stadiums and bestow the honour upon the likes of Dhyan Chand, Balbir Singh Sr, Vishy Anand, Amritraj, Paes, Gopichand, Milkha Singh, PT Usha, Anju Bobby George, Malleswari, Sushil Kumar, Sachin, Kapil etc.....no shortage of sporting icons even though we are a weak sporting nation. These are inspiring names which future generations will aspire to emulate.

    Arun Jaitley was a DDCA president, Bengaluru stadium is named after Chinnaswamy who was a KSCA president. So, what's the BFD?
     
    Why is it so wrong? Instead of naming a ground after a person who comitted heinous crimes, why not a clean politician? 
     
    Aur banate raho, Tughlaq marg, Lodhi road Auranzeb road . worst being, naming the nearest junction  to Nalanda after a person who destroyed Nalanda in its golden period (Bhaktiyar)

    SUMO reacted to kubrickian in One good thing about Pakistan cricket   
    Whenever they see a talent, they will not waste time by making him warm the benches or toil in domestic cricket. They will put him in international cricket as soon as possible. Whereas in India, selectors are either so dumb or so conservative that they take ages to test new players. By that time, the player would have lost his confidence or form, then after a couple of failures they will again relegate him to domestic cricket. I have seen this happen time and again to some of the best talents and its still happening.
     
    Only a new coach, captain and selectors with a different mindset can change this around.

    KL is currently not picking doesnt mean he ever cudnt. The 1st thing in bad form happens is mind get cluttered and then u think about 100 things....hence ur concentration isnt and u cant pick line n length early. As he gets back among runs , he ll get in good mindset and he ll start picking line n length again. He has 100s in Aus, ENG, WI .....that to on his 1st tour, avg player cant do that , even pujara didnt have 100 in any of his 1st overseas tour. Playing late isnt the only thing even rohit plays late but he plays far away from body in test cricket and many times his head falls due to same reason.  Smith biggest strength is his clear mindset.....when u have that u feet move front n back right, Kl is a gr8 opposite example of one the best talent with a messed up mindset hence his failures

    He picks line and length very early and play it very late.Following expressions also means same thing: near/parallel to body or under his head.
    Playing as late as possible,with straight bat ideally,is only way to effectively counter lateral movement(swing/seam) of red ball.In the topic "Parameters and their indicators to predict performance of any batsman",I explained it as positive indicator.
    KL Rahul is average test player because he cannot pick line and length as early as Smith,therefore cannot play as late as possible.Indeed,most batsmen are inferior to Smith in this capability.I think Gill can play ball even late than Smith.
