    ICF gossip thread !!!

    After going through this thread what i have understood is that most of the gossips are already on Internet on a site the opinionated Indian something. So seems like Urmi's uncle either runs that site or she reads that site and consider it to be her uncle.
  2. Listening to Pre show as this ass hole for last 30 mins has been saying only 1 thing and that is “is the pitch tough or dangerous” Sunny said tough pitch but he is disagreeing and saying dangerous and has been going on on and on about it being dangerous.

    D2 Predictions

    This time our batsmen will play well, just hope we get last 3 wickets quickly.
  4. For all those wanting to drop Shami, just wait for shami to win one of the last 2 match.

    First 5-fer for Pandya

    Kid has shut up a lot of ex players like holding, manjerkar, chopra, gavaskar. Also, we need to appreciate Kohli nd Shastri here as today they proved y we need 5 bowlers with Ashwin’s injury. If it wld have been a batsmen instead of Pandya, Eng would still have been batting something which we always faced outside India.
  6. Seen it multiple times with India i.e wasting such a good start on 1st day. blom 2001, melbourne etc etc. this is where we will miss bhuvi. Needed 375 but think we will be getting arnd 330. just want Pant to survive 15 mins tomorrow and then go bersek with Ashwin

    Pitch for Lords

    When Shastri was a player, he was fit....... Infact except Gary all our coaches have had a belly be it Duncan (the one who taught Kohli about Fitness), John, heck even kumble had a belly. I'm not sure how does a coach having a belly impacts his work.
  8. I just want Rahul to play all matches as i know he is gonna come good whereas i know Dhawan will surely fail even if its a flat track but with Kohli i have found out that any day of the week he will consider Dhawan as his first priority pick and then Sharma. Rahul isnt his pick and also Rahul also with not scoring runs is giving this team management chances to drop him.
  9. Rahul is surely gonna get dropped. BUt i also want Dhawan to be dropped. Or i want Dhawan and Vijay to be given 3 tests and if they dont work then both to be dropped or who ever fails in first 3 tests.
  10. Its all about Czech for meeeeeeeeeeee
  11. No from me.. Would have supported if Dhawan was picked in place of Rahul.............. Pujara and Dhawan were both in same place. Happy to give dhawan this test or infact another too as that would mean him either getting finished or getting through difficulties and helping India.
  12. Im not sure on this as have seen multiple experts saying that Tendu had better technique than Dravid and lot of others. Its a myth which gets created around defensive batsmen that they have better techniques. Infact Dravid had gaping holes in his technique.

    Teenagers are no longer making debut for India

    I completely agree about weird nd bad preferences for sure. My above response was only about teenagers nd not about bad selections.

    Teenagers are no longer making debut for India

    Over reaction again. It always feel good to have teens debuting but we need to look at other perspective and that is our pool to select players has massively increased. It isnt about kohli not wanting it or some other sinster plans. its about our cricket improving specially domestically.
  15. I just dont know, why suddenly whole of ICF has gotten Pujara as part of the gang. Till last year, whole of ICF was after KOhli as for him Pujara was never a certainty andKohli even dropped him becoz of his strike rate. But at that most of the ICFers supported Pujara as from media it seemed like Kohli's decision and Kumble was supporting Pujara. But now, just becoz Kohli's strike rate comment is looking true day by day. Whole of ICF has decided that Pujara is in team because he is part of the gang. Bhai, aakhir itni jaldi kaise sab badal sakta hai.
  16. So with Jadeja coming in for batting practice and not Pant, its clear he is not even in plan to play in England
  17. So, seems like we have 1st test team already decided. Its Vijay and Dhawan opening... Pujara at 1 down and then Kohli/Rahane.
  18. Good that buddy has failed... Now, upto Rahul to make sure that Buddy doesnt play the tests.

    Team management reduces 4 day practice game to 3 day

    https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sports/cricket/india-in-england/india-vs-england-unhappy-india-shorten-practice-match-over-condition-of-pitch-outfield/articleshow/65121054.cms Reason for reducing the match.

    Team management reduces 4 day practice game to 3 day

    Essex is a flat pancake and wont help in any way in terms of getting used to conditions. All teams these days try to provide conditions absolutely different in practice matches to what it will be in real matches. Only, thing which it will help in is that our players will get back into Test matches mode. Somehow, i think we have become a forum of over reaction specially becoz Shastri is involved.

    BCCI Gross Negligence - Wriddhiman Saha

    How can it be termed as BCCI failure only? A player can clearly understand that he is having issues in his shoulder and is surely hiding his injury during IPL. Just because he is not a flamboyant character, everybody thinks that he wont be after IPL riches. If this would have been someone like Iyer or Pant or Kishan or Pandya, everybody would have said that the said player was hiding his injury.
  22. JUst saw teams on Twitter and seems like good teams. Only issue is that Jayant Yadav is being given a good amount of chances which to me seems like being given becoz of Anirudh Chaudhary.
  23. I know him personally and he is Maha chor and same was the case with MLA before him (Daan Singh). Daan Singh has a rags to riches story by doing Dalali (not Prostitution).

    Poll Results : ICF's Playing 11 for 1st Test

    I dont think we would need 2 spinners in Tests as pitches wont turn... So, instead of spinner it would be either Hardik or 6th batsmen.

    Does this test series has 2011 written all over it?

    You all are a bit too negative. In 2011, problem at that time was that we were heavily dependent on just 1 bowler which was ZAK. This time, we werent completely dependent on Bhuvi. He was our main weapon but as we saw in 2014, he goes off boil after 2 tests or so. Infact, our bowling is still good if we consider Umesh, SHami and Ishu. With Bumrah to be back after 1st test. I dont think we will face similar situations as in 2011 or 2014 in terms of bowling. Coming to batting, here we need Kohli and Rahane to have good series. Also, i have a feeling that this could be the making of Rahul as Vijay or Dhawan will be out by 2nd test. So, dont worry guys we will do well this time.....
