  1. SS select commies have pressed the panic button. Looks like their jobs are on the line if India bow out of this tourney early.
  2. I really wonder if it even bothers them. Fans no longer blast their homes. Imagine the 90s and 2000s.. the likes of Ganguly biting nails, a nervous looking Dravid, an angry pair of Kumble and Srinath. Only Jadeja or Yuvi looked a bit relaxed then. Now a days everyone is uber cool and relaxed. You get hammered by Pak in CT and you are still relaxed. You get pounded in tests and it doesn't bother you. Looks like everyone is busy minting money by truckloads during ipl. Players past their sell time like Dhoni keep playing while someone like Raina just has to give hints of form to get selected again. How does Rohit clear yo yo with that tummy. Less talked about Bhuvi the better. I'm really pissed with this nonchalant uber cool attitude that barely wins us any trophies or important matches. That win in south Africa with their side in transition seems a distinct aberration.
  3. Lovely diving effort by the young quick khaleel. That's what you love to see.
  4. It's time to accept that the talent pool for middle order batting isn't great. All the run scorers in Domestic games are either top order batsmen or TTF batsmen like Pandey , Karthik etc at international level.
  5. Metro kids and boys are totally into EPL etc.. it's kind of cheap to even know someone like Kedar Jadav or Rayudu for them.
  6. If our main requirement is to provide rest to fast bowlers Shankar should be seriously considered since he seems to be a far better batsman than Pandya
  7. England don't have a tail.Their Tactic is to play as many all-rounders as possible.By dropping catches it did not help.Also their was lack of planning Somebody like curran is good at offside but we kept bowling Outside offstump. True but the likes of Jos butler, Curran are not proven performers before the start of the series. By the end of it, they have cemented their places. The same lower order was helpless in ashes and usually poor in subcontinent. We struggled against Keshav maharaj as well. Even our lower order is too strong when we play at home. So we must plan for bowlers in SENA who are capable of knocking the lower order down. Mystery spin, hostile pace could be two options worth trying. Even going to the extent of resting the super fast bowler till the lower order comes to bat.
  8. This series was lost coz of England's lower order batting. Instead of focusing on no 6 or AR, I would rather try to develop strategies on how to get rid of the tail quickly. Play a mystery spinner or a wrist spinner with googlies? Have a fast bowler who specialises in getting the tail out quickly ?
  9. Honestly we should stop picking the so called swashbuckling or stroke makers for tests. Shaw is an exception since he could be special. Have seen enough of such players and however harsh I may sound I'm even sceptical about Mayank now for the same reason. You simply cannot be an attacking player and score runs overseas. Pick genuine Ranji long format players like Vihari, Siddhesh lad etc..
  10. Moeen is actually turning it even when not landing on footholes.
  11. This is perhaps the best fast bowling performance by an Indian in history.
  12. Vk1

    Will KL Rahul make it count in the 2nd innings?

    This is simply the main reason for his downfall. Being adaptable in all three formats is near impossible and only special players can manage it like Kohli.
  13. In all probability we might see India getting all-out for 150 the moment Kohli gets out. Moeen would pick lower order , tail
