    Ranji trophy 2018-19

    says a big hello to you EB!
  3. I've said this before and I'll say it again. Having both Kohli and Shastri in a position of power is cancer. We are not going to achieve anything under this duo. Both need to be sacked from their positions after the World Cup.
  4. You are seriously underrating Team 2’s batting. Other than Rohit, all of 4 of Agarwal, Rahul, Gill and Pant and can score big match winning centuries. Both Pandya bros can take the opposition bowling apart in the slog overs. I also don’t see Team 2 struggling against Kuldeep since these guys grew up batting against spin bowlers.

    Is time running out for KL Rahul fast?

    How many ODIs did Rahul play in that time frame? How can time be running out when he's not even getting chances?

    Harmless LoI bowler award goes to Bhuvi !!!

    Death bowling was his only saving grace but it seems like he has lost that art as well. He leaks runs in almost every LOI game nowadays
  9. Both Junaid & Hafeez are chuckers and should be banned from bowling! Very well done by Taylor
  10. Eleven years since he made his IPL debut with Delhi Daredevils, Shikhar Dhawan is set to play for his home team again in 2019. ESPNcricinfo understands that the batsman is likely to have been traded by Sunrisers Hyderabad in exchange for three players - Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma and Shahbaz Nadeem. Sunrisers had chosen not to retain Dhawan ahead of last year's auction, where the franchise paid INR 5.2 crore (approx USD 820,000) to buy him back. Since then, there have been murmurs about him being unhappy about being price tag, which eventually led to Sunrisers releasing him through the trade. Since Daredevils had bought the trio of Shankar (INR 3.2 cr), Nadeem (INR 3.2 cr) and Abhishek (INR 55 lakhs) for a total of INR 6.95 crore, Sunrisers would need to pay the balance amount in cash. Dhawan last played for Daredevils in the first season of the IPL in 2008. Then he moved to Mumbai for a couple of years and finally arrived in Hyderabad, initially playing for Deccan Chargers for a year before joining Sunrisers in 2013. Dhawan has been the leading run-getter for Sunrisers with a tally of 2768 from 91 innings at an average of 35.03 and strike-rate of 125.13. In the 2018 IPL, he made 497 runs at 35.50. His smart strike-rate was 142.82, better than his normal strike-rate of 136.91. Although regular captain David Warner was the force behind Sunrisers winning the IPL in 2016, Dhawan also played a key role at the top of the order. In fact, the Warner-Dhawan combine (2357) is the third-most prolific pairing behind Chris Gayle-Virat Kohli (2787) and AB de Villiers-Kohli (2525) In case the deal does go through - both franchises have been tight-lipped, making no public comment - it remains to be seen whether Daredevils have gained much from it, having released three allrounders, all Indians, two of whom (Shankar and Nadeem) are frequent first-choice picks in the XI. The Dhawan deal is the second big trade ahead of the next IPL auction, scheduled for December 16. Royal Challengers Bangalore earlier released South African wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock to Mumbai Indians in a money-only trade, which involves a franchise selling the player in exchange for money, as opposed to swapping him for another player. The other trade in the first trading window was RCB releasing Mandeep Singh to Kings XI Punjab in exchange for Australian allrounder Marcus Stoinis. http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/25128074/shikhar-dhawan-set-return-delhi-daredevils-11-years
  11. @Switchblade 1. Shikhar Dhawan 2. Colin Munro 3. Prithvi Shaw 4. Shreyas Iyer (C) 5. Rishabh Pant (WK) 6. Glenn Maxwell 7. Chris Morris 8. Rahul Tewatia 9. Trent Boult 10. Amit Mishra 11. Avesh Khan This looks a very exciting team on paper.
  12. Shikhar Dhawan is a like-for-like replacement of Gautam Gambhir.

    2019 ODI tour to Aus-NZ

    We have IPL just before the World Cup! Rahul, Rayudu, Dhoni & Bhuvi will all perform excellently in IPL 2019 and seal their spots for the World Cup. Jadhav is a good package with both bat and ball, he will also seal his spot for the World Cup. Jadeja should miss out, both Kuldeep and Chahal are better wicket-takers than him.

    West Indies are selecting awesome youngsters like Hope & Hetmyer whereas we are persisting with short term options like Rayudu & Dhoni.

    Jadeja averages 36 with the ball in ODIs. The only reason why you are fanboying him is because he plays for CSK

    I don’t understand one thing. Ambati Rayudu had an excellent IPL 2018 but he’s in the ODI squad instead of T20s.

    Rohit can’t even handle Holder’s trundling swing at home yet the selectors have full confidence in him that he can handle Starc and Hazlewood in the Australian tests

    India Test squad for #AUSvIND -

    Rohit Sharma has done absolutely nothing to get selected in the test squad again. Why is he in there?
  25. 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?
