  1. Bumrah no. 1 in odi ranking

    Disagree. We faced Hasan Ali in the group stage match as well, he was hammered for 70 runs. Shadab played in that match too. Many unknown players to us like Sohaib Maqsood, Bilawal Bhatti, Umar Amin, Sharjeel Khan etc played against India in major tournaments, but they did not do much damage. Its just that Fakhar Zaman had his luck & punished us severely. But the notion that by boycotting them, we'd get a phainty in big tournaments is false. In the last 15 years we have won more matches against them in world tournaments, more so since 2009.
  2. India's over reliance on top 3

    Kohli has already made 58* & 96* against SL & Bangladesh in CT 2013 & 2017. Both were semifinals.
  3. Batting- Kohli Bowling- Bumrah Fielding- Dhoni
  4. Pakistan Super League 2018 - Tournament Thread

    So after endorsing Aleem Dar's restaurant, I suppose now it is the time for Virat to give a scheduled "Best of Luck" message to one of the PSL franchisees.
  5. Nirav Modi paise leke bhaga thread

    This Nirav Modi went on to open his two new stores on 5th & 9th Feb in Kuala Lumpur & Macau even after CBI registered 1st case against him. Experts have already predicted that Indian banks may take a hit of more than $ 3 billion due from loans and corporate guarantees provided to diamond companies by PNB scam. Indian banking is going through a real turbulent period now. SBI reported a Q3 loss of about 2416 crores & the analysts were expecting a profit of more than 2000 crores. Also what the auditor firms were doing all this time? Sleeping!!!
  6. Rohit and Dhawan ....test career future??

    He is a walking wicket. If he or either PP is playing, then it is definitely an ominous sign. Agree with your point that Nair should be taken to England, but Rohit will not be replaced.
  7. Virat Kohli In last two years of ODI stats

    He will just get better from here on. Entering his peak years, it is awesome to watch him bat & he's just 29.
  8. Unfortunate to be dropped for the 1st t20, should come in place of Pandey for the next match. But who knows, Kohli might give a chance to KL replacing Raina.
  9. Pandey ji- You are a good batsman, just stop playing those ugly hoicks & play proper cricketing shots you'd be alright.
  10. I don't think India will let hosting rights taken away from them.
  11. When I was watching Finch and Maxwell making a mockery of the target of 243 against NZ ,our t20 selections for this series was flashing in my mind. Dhoni/Pandey/Rahul/DK competing for the spot of no. 4 and 5. Do we really think our batsmen can bludgeon the opposition at 200/220+ SR if top 3 depart after 140/3 in 15 overs? When Kohli departed we were 108/3, cruising at a run rate of 11 in 10th over. But we were huffing & puffing to reach even 200, making only 46 runs in last 5 overs. Our top heavy approach have already cost us a few ICC trophies, covering the cracks of a brittle middle order. It's not something new, we are still trying to find a proper combo since the regression of Dhoni, Raina, Yuvi. Tbh I find more confidence in our bowling department in any format than our middle order, never thought I would say this about India's batting a few years back.
  12. 1st T20 : SA v IND | Wanderers, Jo'berg 6:30 PM IST

    Your wish granted
  13. 1st T20 : SA v IND | Wanderers, Jo'berg 6:30 PM IST

    Absolutely chewt batting in slog overs. Sharm se doob maro.
  14. Feeling so satisfied with Michael Holding crying

    Holding went with other top players of the world at that time to play World Series cricket organized by Kerry Packer. But he has got problems with IPL, Stanford Super series in the past & calls it a "farce". How could he blame players of today when he also took the easy way out to earn big bucks? He preaches morality when he himself kicked the stumps in NZ because of a wrong decision. Was it sportsmanship? Why doesn't Micheal enlighten us with his views on Kolpak when African nations had seen dozens of players migrating for County cricket?
  15. Watched any new movies? *Please use spoiler tags*

    Then this movie is definitely not for you.
  16. Watched any new movies? *Please use spoiler tags*

    "Trapped" as the title of the movie suggests, is about a man who mistakenly locks himself up in a flat of secluded high rise apartment complex. This movie is not for everybody as few of my friends felt bored too after watching it. But I gave it a try just because of Motwane's & Rajkumar's earlier work.
  17. Surgical strikes documentary

    Fighters!! I've seen BBC addressing these Jihadis as 'gunmen' during terrorist incidents in India, so what to expect from a Qatar based news Corp which is a propaganda mouthpiece of their govt. Qatar was the only place where Taliban opened their office, apart from Pakistan. GOI had this good for nothing channel off air in 2015 for showing wrong maps of Kashmir. But only for 5 days. GOI should take a cue from Israel and other Middle Eastern countries who have banned this channel for supporting terrorism & religious radicalisation.
  18. Watched any new movies? *Please use spoiler tags*

    Saw Vikramaditya Motwane's "Trapped" starring Rajkumar Rao. Blown away by his performance. But felt that the movie was a tad lengthy. Also liked him in Shahid, Gangs of Wasseypur, Newton.
  19. In that match, Adil Rashid missed a simple catch of Morris which went high in the air & boy he did smash the Poms all over. It was no looking back from then on for South Africans. In 2003-04 as well, SA came back from 0-2 to win 3-2 against Pak in Pak. I have trust in Kohli, despite a few deadwood in the team, to seal the series in upcoming matches.
  20. Surgical strikes documentary

    @Gollum Heartbreaking to see these terrorists attack the close ones of our security forces in family quarters. How the hell did the Rohingyas reach in Jammu and other parts of Kashmir? Local populace in Jammu have warned the govt in the last few years about the involvement of Rohingyas in illegal activities as well as their links to terrorist groups. But it all fell in deaf ears. The Jihadis are not sitting across the border or LOC, but also in J & K local assembly. In front of camera, they all blabber about Kashmir being destroyed by Indo-Pak but inside closed doors we all know their true love for Ummah. I've lost count of Farooq Abdullah changing goalposts in last few decades. PDP-NC are 2 sides of the same coin. The Jihadi scum who idolize Hafeez Saeed, Masood Azharuddin etc. have already cleansed the valley, now they keep attacking Jammu as well. If Modi-Doval combo are unable to do significant damage to the terrorists & their leaders, then I seriously doubt about our leadership. Our jawans will get martyred & govt will simply do lip service of "Dushman ko kada jawab diya jayega".
  21. 5.3-0- 68 -1

    Everyone has a bad day. Forget it and move on. Hope our bowlers work on these no balls, they have haunted us in the past as well.
  22. Rohit missed out to cash in big today. Close boundaries too. I'm waiting since the beginning of this tour to watch him perform. But alas.
  23. Indeed they're lucky with rain, otherwise Kohli wouldn't have bowled so many overs to Bumrah and Bhuvi in the beginning. Less said about our batting in slog overs the better.
  24. Let's move on & focus towards next ODI in Port Elizabeth.
