  1. Nothing wrong in aspiring. If it helps him to succeed and become a better player so be it. Wish you luck Shreyas..
  2. If we have dhoni then we need to beef up bowling and hope opposition does not score more than 300. This would imply no jadeja and playing kulcha whenever dhoni bats and praying the kulcha Boyz don't have a bad day in office.
  3. Co Tests I agree. ODIs we're agarkars forte.. agarkar gets rated based on wrong formats and his batting flops more than what he did with his bowling. Just feel it's a case of heightened expectations on all fronts. In ODIs did the job admirably for India in lot of cases.
  4. We should do a narine her and send kuldeep one down in t20s just for practice sake..

    Rohit Dhawan Kohli Dhoni & Rayudu/ {Gill - outside chance} Jadhav & Pant Karthik Pandya Jadeja/ Vijay shankar Kuldeep & chahal Shami & Bhuvi Bumrah Pant will defly make squad due to x factor . This is a 17 member squad. 2 out of this extra 4 would make it Vijay Shankar/ jadeja -- give VS the edge here Rayudu/ Gill - Thinking gill will get chances in NZ series. There is no backup for top 4 . So Gill/Rayudu will fight for a place. I am going to give Gill upside here.
  6. Like every bowler , Aggy also had his bad days, but does not deserve to be demonized. If we were to take the top 5 pace bowlers we had, Aggy would be at the pack along with Kapil, zaheer and srinath. The support cast he had was atrocious those days .. and McGrath, warne are legends. Even zaheer cannot be compared to them..it's like comparing dhawan to Sachin..

    Dhoni at #4

    I want to see how dhoni responds when NZ score 330 and Rohit and dhawan are back in the hut with less than 100 on scoreboard. I think this series dhoni has redeemed himself a bit, but this will not hold water during WC. So needs to work on improving strike rate.
  8. If we had a bowler like Aggy now, we would be comparing him in legacy to Sachin. Bowlers were not rated that highly those days, hence he is underrated as we did not have a bowling unit to hunt in packs. Nevertheless a ODI ATG... Agarkar was the first bowler who gave me belief that Indian bowlers can bowl Yorkers and cartwheel stumps. Absolute bliss for some of the 90s kids... There were many of us who would try to emulate aggy's bowling action by holding the ball close to the chest.
  9. If you listened to the commentary the Aussies were mentioning about flat tracks and 350 par scores in England and why the current batting order will not help and once Steve Smith comes back, there is not a spot for handscomb as they need to get bigger hitters. I think we can have this combination only if we play both our spinners and hope they don't have a bad day in office and opposition is restricted to less than 290. Dhoni is doing a good job but needs to finish at s/r of 90 if he plays 50 balls. Cannot be at s/r of 70 and hope to reach 80 when he plays 80 balls and 100 beyond that . If score of 330 is par in wC then it means the rest will need to bat at s/r of 200 to make up for their slow starts . If both Rohit and dhoni have starts but get out before they can accelerate, we are doomed . I think we need both Gill and pant in WC squad and hope dhoni can bat at s/r of 85 .
  10. Calling a spade a spade...sir Aggy vaazhga.. I did not see the second innings, but no reason to take it to 50th over.
  11. Want Australia to score 250 so that middle order can get practice.. I am guessing pant will come in at 5 for WC.

    in DK I still dont trust !

    I think dhoni being in lower order has killed us. Neither he could accelerate in end nor don the role of 2 down. DK and Jadhav are number 6 and would have made the place their own if they were allowed that role. Because of dhoni they became floaters and also did not get a consistent run. Rayudu got lucky that he got to play in India against weaker opposition. Just hoping dhoni gets to score consistent 50s and 60s at 80 Sr in 2 down while we have pant at 5 and DK/Jadhav at 6.

    Non existent top order . Our top 3 make merry most of times. Not apples to apples comparison. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Which number 5 scores a 100 these days ?? If top 4 screw up very difficult to come back in the match. Expecting number 5 or 6 to play a blinder when everyone in top order fails is irrational. Number 5 and 6 should be able to score quick 30s to 60s if required . That's their role. For number 6, DK is doing a remarkable job.

    Panda yes. Rahul No.. he can't bat middle order . No spot exists for him..
  18. Folks ..this is kjo.. took a while to register..
  19. Run outs equivalent to pointing. The diving catches are missing but guess today those opportunities in point are limited due to flat pitches . Easily the greatest fielder ever to play for India.

    He looks super cool... Better clone actually...
  21. Shami really is bowling too good . He is ahead of bhuvi as well. His ticket to England is confirmed. No way we can have both kuldeep and chahal in flat pancakes of England. Gill, Pant,DK,Pandya would be a great middle order with a mix of aggression and strike rotation . Only thing I am not sure is how pandya will be after his suspension..

    Pant will be there. Whether he replaces chahl or Rayudu is to be seen
  23. Rayudu will not be in wC squad. I am thinking they will get Jadhav and vijayshankar in place of khaleel and Rayudu next match.
