Georgejed reacted to vishalvirsingh in SPEED & PERFORMANCE OF FAST BOWLERS N TRUNDLERS IN 2017 IPL
This ipl will be a treat for the icf phaast gang if all these talented 140+ Indian bowlers get their chances and if they perform as per expectations.
A few cases could be under performers.
Vinay kumar who has been such a big hit in India and is considered as an undoubted trundler king. When he played his only test in Perth (Hope I remember the pitch correctly)...even I was confident that he will get at least 5 wickets in 2 innings.
But he misfired ...was hit all around the park and he bowled even slower than even his natural pace of 133k...he bowled 115 to 128k...thats where he seriously under performed.
Then Pankaj Singh.. .after a long wait he got the test cap but he under performed.
All his life he and his friends spoke lowly of selectors but when he was given the test cap...what did he do.
He was a very experienced bowler...
...we have to find bowlers who get international batsman to hurry up
Georgejed reacted to sscomp32 in Will Dhoni equal Rohit's feat by winning this IPL final?
Welcome to Episode one of Maggi Threads with Maniac
Georgejed reacted to tweaker in Champions Trophy Post Mortem Thread
This selection committee is very pathetic.They don't have guts to even try youngsters for the Windies series.
They don't want to create competition for the spots.They just select tried & tested failures each time they get an opportunity to select a youngster.
Kuldeep, Shreyas, should have been integral part of this squad.Pant should have been understudy to Dhoni instead of Karthik.
Georgejed reacted to maniac in Will Dhoni equal Rohit's feat by winning this IPL final?
Rohit is the only player to win the IPL as both captain and player.
even though performances wise Rohit has done it all catch of the tournament nomination,IPL hattricks,IPL 100s,hitting 46s to win a game where Dhoni doesn't have much to show for
however credit where due Dhoni was the captain when his teammates pulled him along for the ride now doing the same when is a player
so record being a record
will he equal Rohit's incredible accomplishment by doing this?
Dhoni doesn't realize but by screwing his team he is missing out on reaching the great man's status

India will also miss Kapil Dev and Javagal Srinath.
Georgejed reacted to Vk1 in What is Kohli's prejudice towards Rishabh Pant?
Hmmm.. interesting thing is that today's crop of youngsters are more ready for international cricket than ever before with all these ipls and A tours. And yet don't get fair chances. Can't think of a country in world cricket right now where rishab pant can't walk in into the team.
Georgejed reacted to SUMO in What is Kohli's prejudice towards Rishabh Pant?
Normally cricketers have respect for veteran players who has toiled hard in domestics.
If you ask anyone of them they will say pick a seasoned player over youngster because seasoned domestic player has worked harder, youngster has many chances to come in future.
Its not like how us fans feel, I'm sure even if you ask dada, sachin, vvs, sunny etc like legends they will also be inclined towards giving DK a go first.
We will have to wait for DK to fail as early as possible then pant will get the chance over next pick in the squad.

Georgejed reacted to Shaz1 in Sachin Tendulkar vs Steve Smith - Comparative Analysis
Sachin is a average cricketer. There is nothing special about him besides his ablity to score lots of runs due to longetivity. In the Op you can clearly see Smith has surpassed him.
Georgejed reacted to Khota in Kumble-Kohli communication had stopped six months ago
If true then everyone involved should be fired. If the problem exists for 6 months and it comes to a boiling point before a tournament then they all are responsible. I dont see how Kohli gets a pass.
Georgejed reacted to Adi_91 in Kumble-Kohli communication had stopped six months ago
Who knows what the new coach will have to face. Kohli is also equally at fault here.
Indian cricket needs a smooth system of functioning, not individuals who think they are above everything, be it the coach or the captain.
Georgejed reacted to Vilander in COA was ready to back CT pull out on Governance model but not financial model : Vinod Roy
hmm but the question is why., Rai sound like the C wing guy who is telling folks how things will work now in his way, its pure management talk all that he is saying. But i wonder how, cause COA is short term. It would be a great betrayal is BCCI is forced to accept the governance changes.
