    Team India attitude

    I have a feeling that we are still stuck in the early 2000 kind of cricket. Looks like our selection panel, team management have come to a conclusion that it is better to be cautious than adventurous. It feels like that their thinking is that we can defend the kind of scores that Pakistan scored this week. Is this really possible against good sides? Isn't the overall process of worldcup not about winning those crucial games against big sides? Can we even imagine the scenario of playing a weak team in QF/ Semis like 2003/2015 ( Kenya & BD ) ? To top all this, Bangar says that he isn't obsessed with the number of boundaries that we score? what kind of a world is he living in ? Haven't we seen how England and like of West Indies benefitting from regularly hitting those big shots in the middle overs? Are they going by the CSK model of winning by spinners? What if the pitches don't become slow by July ?
  2. True.. in 90s you needed a tail that can hang in and try the target of 30 of 30 balls in chases or score a handy 8 of 9 balls while batting first.. cannot imagine both these scenarios now.. you need more of what Hassan Ali has done today.. strike rate should always be in excess of 160
  3. What has really gone in Dhoni's favour is the home pitches totally suited to their strong spin bowlers...
  4. Except that it was Watson batting.. Watson once scored some 180+ chasing 230 something against Bangladesh tonking some 15 sixes slop sweeping their left arm battery ..
  5. Not sure if he is so predictable or vulnerable against offies. He still gives that others can do it if I can't kind of feeling from time to time...
  6. Looks like he had a Casanova kind of life and now scared for his daughters.

    Performance of Indian spinners in IPL 2019

    The way bhajji got Rahul today.. Ajmal would have been proud. Guess ipl governing council wouldn't be serious on these chuckers as long as they play for csk.
  8. I thought Younis Khan was this perfect well mannered guy like our Dravid. Isn't he ?
  9. oh...but why is he even thought about..we have far far better batsman than him waiting
  10. Left armers have had great success over the years in world cups.. be it Wasim, geoff allot, zaheer, Vaas,Boult, Starc... Should have been groomed by now
  11. Can remember someone saying here that due to his extra pace , his bouncers are hitting the middle or upper part of the bat and creating chances.. that is just dream stuff for an Indian fan to see
  12. He seemed like Wahab Riaz kind of bowler who takes wickets with bouncers too.
  13. I think they have gambled here.. they are thinking that India will definitely be in top 4 with this squad and by then the pitches will probably slow down like in CT13... Selecting Karthik too was from this view point I think

    Andre Russell

    Perhaps the most dominant player seen in cricket since Lance Klusener in 1999. I'm just thrilled to see what devastation he can create in world cup on those absolute flat beds and small grounds.. Remember this dialogue from KGF which goes like.. hitting these small guys you will become dada aa....?? Hey.. whoever I have hit till date are all Dadas...!!! Hope somebody can make a video of this guy smashing the IPL bowlers like the hero does in KGF with the same background score.

    Self centred egoistic captains

    So all this ego from Karthik has KKR on the edge of elimination even when DreRus is in form of his life.. wins you those matches.. perhaps the most impactful player of recent years.. And what does Karthik do.. to cover up all this he says to press that team has to believe in leadership and finally sends Russell at 3.. pretty childish
  16. This IPL has probably seen the most self centred men masquerading as captains.. how they cannot see the obvious things , how they try to cover up their deficiencies blaming others is there to see... Dinesh Karthik is probably the most luckiest guy in Indian cricket.. his odi average, his test performances are there to be seen and yet he goes to the worldcup as a finisher lol... how this guy was made as captain of KKR and to see how he is managing the man of this tournament is a lesson for future leaders.. And then we have Virat Kohli.. the less we speak of his leadership the better.. Among all this I'm most disappointed with RR.. after the millions that they got from the recent television deal they have totally ignored the team.. guy who has been out of form for years now has been made the captain.. not sure what is wrong with these franchises.. professionalism has gone out of the window and they seem more interested in counting the dollars..
  17. Yeah..we should move on and aim for actual long term quality than falling for potential that is never realised ..
  18. This is a very handy mode of dismissal on flat pitches.. seen many indian batsmen get out this way.

    Self centred egoistic captains

    Apparently he did well way back in 2014 and they are still loyal to him for that..

    Self centred egoistic captains

    Well played DK... throwing Uthappa out was a good decision.. coming ahead and taking responsibility was just brilliant.. augurs well for us in world cup.

    Self centred egoistic captains

    Lol.. you don't seem to catch the emotion here... Not all abuses here are meant to be taken for real right. Not playing Russell in actual situations even though he's the only reason why their team is still in top 6 ? What do you call that ? DK may be known as the nicest guys we have but then Power can corrupt the greatest of men.
  22. To see Umesh being trusted more than other bowlers is outright insult to the rcb fans and is only helping these fixing claims .. bowl his fours out asap man
  23. Among the top teams it's only England who don't have good death bowlers but that might soon change once wood and archer become the pair
