  1. Why is Dhoni still playing T20s for India?

    Big names like Gambhir, Sehwag, Yuvraj and Raina who are all much better T20 cricketers than Dhoni have been rightly dropped from the team because their performances weren't up to the mark but this guy keeps on getting selected series after series and world cup after world cup with a free coupon.
  2. Why is Dhoni still playing T20s for India?

    No other team would give a 10 year long rope to a T20 cricketer who has a grand total of ONE T20 half century in his whole career and has a career strike rate of less than 125 when batting in the lower order below #5. Other teams have monsters such as Maxwell, Buttler, Miller, Russell etc. in their lower order whereas we have the great "Thala" who bats at a snails pace at a strike rate of 100 or less. Dhoni will only slog in the last over (If he survives that long ) which will bring his overall strike rate in that innings to 120-125 which is mediocre for a lower order hitter. We have lost countless T20 games due to Dhoni trying to hit big only in the final over instead accelerating a bit earlier and carrying that momentum to the end. Even Dhoni Bhakts will know that he has won less than 5 T20 matches for Team India in his whole career and does not deserve a place in the side in all fairness. My question is that how can someone as bad as this in T20 cricket still play for the national team, let alone for 10 years!
  3. Why is Dhoni still playing T20s for India?

    Just 3 innings in his whole T20 career in which 2 of those came exactly 10 years ago in 07'. How the F has he survived this long in our T20 setup
  4. So this is our world class T20 team that match winning IPL youngsters like Rahul, Pant and Krunal can't get in to?
  5. I don't remember Dhoni ever winning a T20 match for India. If I'm not wrong, he doesn't have a man of the match award in this format either. He has only played as a supporter for Kohli, Raina, Yuvraj etc. which any young batsman from the IPL could do as well. His strike rate rate is also in the low 120s, which means that he isn't a player that will take the game away from the opposition. So what is so special about him in this format that makes him an automatic selection?
  6. What is the point of having a 2 month long IPL if performers like Krunal, Pant, Kaul etc. are not getting selected!
  7. Your T20 squad to face Australia?

    Doesn't matter what we fans want and think is the best. I fully expect the selectors to troll us all and select grandfathers Yuvraj, Nehra and Mishra

  9. Kedhar Jadhav :player without X factor

    I never knew that the World Cup was starting tomorrow
  10. Kedhar Jadhav :player without X factor

    Great batsman but don't see him in our 2019 world cup team. Age and fitness are not on his side.
  11. INDIA vs AUSTRALIA | 4th ODI | Bengaluru | Sep 28 2017

    Has Akshar Patel ever performed against a top 8 team with either bat or ball? I swear all of his decent performances have only come against Zimbabwe
  12. Umesh Yadav is a tried and tested failure in LOIs. I don't see any difference between him and padosi Wahab Riaz
  13. Your T20 squad to face Australia?

    Most likely 15 man T20 squad: 1. Rohit Sharma 2. KL Rahul 3. Virat Kohli (C) 4. Suresh Raina 5. MS Dhoni (WK) 6. Krunal Pandya 7. Hardik Pandya 8. Bhuveneshwar Kumar 9. Kuldeep Yadav 10. Yuzvendra Chahal 11. Jasprit Bumrah 12. Mohammad Shami 13. Akshar Patel 14. Manish Pandey 15. Rishabh Pant (WK)
  14. Can Krunal Pandya bat at #6 in the ODI team?

    Bump! We are so blessed to have an awesome talent like Hardik in the team after years of mediocrity from Binny! Just imagine if his brother also joins the team! We will have 2 match winning allrounders just like England (Stokes & Moeen) I know that the IPL is no parameter to judge any cricketers but there must be something great about Krunal's batting if he bats before Hardik in every match for Mumbai! I am very excited about watching the 2 brothers play together for Team India!
  15. Dhoni isn't going anywhere before World Cup 2019
