    Bumrah should not start in WC

    Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav have been treated very unfairly by BCCI, Shastri and Kohli. It is time to give these 2 bowlers their fair dues and repay their skills which took India to no.1. Bumrah is good but he is inexperienced and has a lot of time in his career remaining. He will get his chance. Shami and Yadav are pushing 30 and it's now or never for these 2. Shami has particularly been treated unfairly by the media, probably cos of his faith. They should start over Bumrah. Shami and Yadav have experience, calmness and maturity which may take India over the line. They definitely wont bowl noballs like Bumrah.

    Bumrah should not start in WC

    Thala is God. Look at his age. He is 37. The older the better. the older the player is, the more experienced. He should play until he dies on the cricket field.
  3. Hopefully Dhoni plays and Pant doesn't play. Pant is too inexperienced for this level.

    Shami is second behind Bumrah

    Shami has bowled well. However, recently I have observed buffoons like gattaca act as though Shami is better than Bumrah. Let me put this clear. Shami is not in the same universe. Bumrah is miles better. Bumrah is a skill player, Shami a muscular player who is also quite skilled. However, Bumrah is a weapon of surgical destruction much more potent than Shami. Bumrah is Bumrah. Shami is good, but nowhere near.
  5. Steve Waugh, the iceman, was a player fit to lead McGrath, Warne and Gilchrist's Aussies. Steve Waugh kept enforcing the follow on even after Eden Gardens 2001. Steve Waugh is like cricket's Pep Guardiola. Virat Kohli is like cricket's Mourinho. Virat Kohli is boring, defensive and negative. Steve Waugh was the most attacking you could possibly be. He had 5 slips at all times.
  6. Hazlewood is generally known as the most economical/accurate bowler in the world. But I feel Bumrah has surpassed him. It was at the age of 25 that Glenn McGrath took the MOTS award in West Indies, 1995. Bumrah is gonna do the same thing in Australia, 2019. This I can assure you.

    Is Bumrah more economical than Hazlewood?

    There are still 2 tests to go. By the way, Bumrah is infinitely better than Umesh, who looks like a rag doll on these pace friendly wickets. Your favourite Umesh is bullsh!t !

    [VIDEO] Left-arm pacer from Manipur takes 10 wickets for 11 runs!

    He looks like a gorilla, or perhaps the face of a dinosaur T-Rex. Appropriately named Rex.

    Barbie Girl (Aqua) song

    I used to listen to this song when I was a child. I still love it. Do you enjoy this song?

    Khaleel Ahmed progression watch.

    I dislike this guy Khaleel. I hope he does not succeed in international cricket. he does not strike me as a perfectionist like Bumrah. Bring Nagarkoti and Porel ahead of this guy.

    Ind needs to pull its socks up (WC19)

    Example of a low IQ Indian is this guy here
  13. What do you believe has been the key to Bumrah's successful career? What techniques does he have
  14. English teams just lump the ball long. They rely on their muscles, and are big and strong. They play like monkeys whose only claim to superiority is athletics and muscle. There is so much value attached to experience over philosophy. India are similar. Just look at the treatment of Dhoni vs Pant. West Indies are more like Ajax, Barcelona. Australia are more like Barcelona. The philosophy of attractive cricket is embedded within these teams. They would rather lose a match than lose their philosophy.
  15. Look at the way they play. They play cultured, intelligent, consistently attacking cricket with a sense of superiority. Whereas India always play defensive cricket till today. How do the West Indies play like this?
  16. The media are asking him what he learns from Dhoni. That's the first question they ask. Definitely, I doubt whether this is the truth. I bet he is trying to suck up to Dhoni in public, because this leech Dhoni has so much power.
  17. You are very ugly too.
  18. This Dhoni is an absolute leech, it angers me.
  19. Tendulkar has even more experience of playing in major tournaments. And so does Kapil Dev, who has been around for a long time. I think they should slot in to our batting. SR Tendulkar Rohit# Dhawan Kohli Dhoni Kapil Dev Hardik Kuldeep Chala B Kumar Bumrah. SOOOO MUCH experience!! So much winning mentality!
  20. Previous incarnation of Dotender Singh Dhoni?
  21. Your idiocy reigns supreme. On what planet is 1-39 at economy rate 4.5 mediocre? Retards should be banned from this forum.

    Dropping Chahal would be idiocy.

    Chahal cannot be dropped. Pandya can be dropped. Pandya is dispensable, Chahal is not. IF you choose to play Bumrah-Bhuvneshwar-Kuldeep-Chahal-Jadeja, you have 5 consistent threats who each economy rate under 5. I can assure that IF we play these 5 bowlers, the combined synergy will be such that it will be IMPOSSIBLE for the opposition to score over 240 in 50 overs. Play attacking cricket. Drop hardik pandya. Play Rohit-Dhawan-Rahul-Kohli-Jadhav-Dhoni-Jadeja-Bhuv-Kul-Cha-Bum. As much as I support Pant, I would play Pant ahead of Jadhav only. Dhoni in a final, has increased threat of effecting crucial stumpings of specialist batsmen to spinners that Pant may not be capable of.

    Dropping Chahal would be idiocy.

    Many of you are underestimating the synergies that would come by playing metronomical Jadeja as a fifth bowler instead of the idiot Hardik Pandya. You would have 6 specialist batsmen, 1 allrounde plus insanely economical bowler, plus 4 insanely economical bowlers. It's a pity that none of you understand the principles of Cruyjffism.
  25. I can't fathom how a bowler can average only 21. I can't visualize it. But the average is the least impressive thing about McGrath. It's his economy rates, and that the fact that he did this with a deficiency in pace. The true version of skill over brawns!
