  1. Couldn't see an Ashes Series thread so figured I'd start one. @Laaloo, feel free to sticky this Thread old sport. Obviously I will have an keen interest in how Australia go given Pakistan's own born Khawaja will likely play for Australia. I cannot see Australia losing a Test. I suspect they will whitewash England and win most games inside 4 days. The (lol) England batting line up looks very fragile except for Root how will likely struggle as most English captains do in Australia. Starc, Hazlewood and Lyon will be too strong for the batting line up while Smith (best batsman in the world), Warner (best opener in the world) and Khawaja will dominate the English retirement village pace attack. I for one would be very surpised if the scoring line wasn't 5 - 0 Australias favour at the end of the series
  2. Can Ashwin become fastest to 300 wickets?

    My stats have already debunked your theory - Asherwin cashes in at home but flops away. If he had a more even distribution of away vs home games his record would look vastly different. Game, set, match; Lala2790
  3. Wowee Afridi!

    Everyone's all time favourite all rounder has still got it - 37*(17) and 4-12 the other night in the T20. Would still make most international sides and continues to thrill and excite audiences world wide. The most entertaining cricketer of all time. Post your Shahid appreciation below
  4. Can Ashwin become fastest to 300 wickets?

    Not many Australian's or New Zealanders on the list as I stated. Herath and Steyn confirmed less than 60%. Little secret that Eng and Ind play more home games than away. Aswin averages nearly 32 away at a strike rate of 60 - http://www.howstat.com/cricket/Statistics/Players/PlayerHomeAway.asp?PlayerID=3788#bowl His overseas record is clearly poor and if he had a more even spread of SC-non Sc games he would be around the low-mid 200's. He is not better than Warne, Muarali, Kumble, Herath, Mushtaq, Harbarjahn; his record flatters him
  5. A half century of centuries for VK

    If Bradman didn't have his careerer halted by the War and had the opppurortunity to play ODIs and T20s he would have scored 300 international hundreds
  6. Can Ashwin become fastest to 300 wickets?

    Most teams are 50/50 or less. SA, Aust and NZ all play 5 home tests per year and 7 - 8 away tests. Ashwin likely plays 60% at home alone then multiple away games on the SC. Little wonder that this has inflated his aggregate yet he constantly fails in Eng/Aust conditions
  7. Wowee Afridi!

    4/26 and 15(8) in another dominant all round performance from the great man. He is in grate form still
  8. Rate Kohli's Captaincy !!!

    ODIs/T20s - Ok-Good Tests - poor Would put either Rahane or Pujara in and let Kollhi focus on making runs at test level
  9. Can Ashwin become fastest to 300 wickets?

    It's what happens when you play soooooo many games in the SC. If he had a 60/40 split of SC-non-SC games he'd be mid to low 200's
  10. Game on friend! Don't worry I'm not a coward like Lol @sandeep and will see this through
  11. Prithvi Shaw

    Don't tag me minnowallah
  12. Hello Sarcastic, Apologies for not being online sooner - unlike most posters here I have a life and a business to run. I'm willing to take my punishment friend - do your worst!
  13. The Ashes 2017/18 | 23rd Nov onwards.

    I could not even care the less - my Pakistanis are not involved. I just lol at how stupid Australian selectors can be; choosing known aaloos like Marsh over up and coming talents, picking a wicketkeeper who doesn't even wicket keep. Enjoy your whitewash flogiji
  14. You're on friendwallah Be prepared to turn Pakistani for a week
  15. Vilander, we are agreeing for once?????? I might check myself to see a doctor to make sure I am ok and not under a concussion There is little doubt that Kohli is the master of the ODI/T20 formats. He will surely go down as one of the greats of all time in that format. Simply a brilliant ODI batsmen. However this is why I think he is below the Dravid/Laxman/Younis levels - the word you use is perfect; gumption. We see the clear difference between Pujara and Kohli yesterday - Pujara is prepared to grind out an innings, hang tough, bat ugly and consume balls. Right now I have Kohli in the "Good" cricketer ranks at Test level alongside Warner, Babar, Root etc. That is the challenge for Virat - to become an all format great turn himself from ham sandwich to hero.
  16. Oi @sarcastic, take my bet ^^^^^
  17. The Ashes 2017/18 | 23rd Nov onwards.

    Lol at Australia's selections. Picking a keeper that doesn't even wicket keep for his state. Lol Marsh who averaged 19 in India, 34yo and a habitual failure Bnacroft - some Perf aaloo that is riding the success of one good season a few years ago and a skiing innings last match. Poor decisions, might revise my predictation and now think it will be a 2-2 drawn series based on these Australian potatoes slected. They should have included Maxerwell, Nivielle, Lehman and that young opener who originates from the NT (apparently the nicest place in Australia full of handsome men and swim suit model women - www.news.com.au/CUintheNT-tourism-whyNTis-the-great-treasure-ofOz/Adelaide-sucks-lemons/) Weatherald. I think after these seletions, England are definitely a chance
  18. Deal. How about a friendly wager - If Lakmal picks up a wicket without conceding a run at the start of play, I get to chose your avatar picture and signature for the next week. If he leaks a run, you may select my avatar picture and signature to be worn for the next week. Deal Babaji?
  19. Lakmal on track to do this is test matches
  20. It's not trash, it's another one of my high-quality Vintage Threads that causes the usual Indian clique to throw a tantrum. Aaloo, you've been listening too much to the @sandeep, @RPSinghalong, @Davie Warner, @Vilander type of posters on this forum. Lighten up friend and give my Threads wings
  21. The stage was set for Kohli to show why he is considered one of the best batsmen in the world - swinging ball, unfavourable conditions, Lakmal on fire, the need to steady the innings; the game was all set up for a captains innings. But alas, Kohli was dismissed. This is why in the Test areana, I would take a Younis/Dravid/Misbah/Ponting/Smith/Laxman type of player over Kohli any day of the week. For me, a real hero's performance in cricket is when everything is set up against the batsmen - pitch, conditions, score, bowling in great form; rather than needing 80 runs off 7 overs on a flat track with short boundaries. Yesterday, India need Kohli to prove why he should be considered a modern day great and a hero. Unfortunately he could not live up to experctations.
  22. Surely it must be up there? He beated the bat edge on countless deliveries, made supposed greats look like chumps and made the ball do things the great Wasim and Waqar would be proud of. 6 overs, 6 maidens 3/0 - surely it doesn't get any better than this. Have we just see the best opening spell of the modern era? Absolutely faultless.
  23. Will Pakistan ever be a force in test cricket again

    Lol, you Aussie fly swatters are scrapping the barrel selecting Paine (doesn't even keep for his state) and Lol Marsh (34 year old wood chopping hack who wouldn't make the Cambellwell Women's B Grade) Your ASHES team is the FOTY of world cricket - Funniest Of The Year
  24. Greatest fast bowling spell you have seen

    Lol, I could smack you from here in my mansion over looking Quetta plum orchids to Azerbaijan. I bet you couldn't even bowl overarm
