    That one game in the World Cup!

    India lost to Australia two days later Although sad for a good generation of Saffa players, it was deserving for the Kiwi players/home fans, some of whom I met in the crowd were at the Eden Park to witness the heartbreak & Inzi special 23 years ago! I wish the result of the 2015 final was different. But losing BMac early killed the game for the Kiwis and for the crowd. I met their supporters the day after the final and they were mighty proud of their team!

    Indian All Rounders IPL Watch thread

    Absolutely. It's glaring how Virat doesn't persist with youngsters with some track record behind them. Sandeep Warrier never got a game for RCB and despite all the hype, poor Saini warmed the bench for an entire season. I am absolutely loving how Ashwin is persisting with Murugan Ashwin and getting decent performances out of him. Virat discarded him too quickly

    IPL 2019: Remaining matches and status

    Every team is still in the mix. If CSK & MI go on a winning spree and RCB/RR win their respective games, the RR/RCB clash will likely be the difference on who progresses. Of course a bunch of results need to go in favour of both RR & RCB, but they aren't out just yet.

    Thala is back !!!

    Last year's IPL form wasn't the right pointer to his form later in the summer in England. Here's hoping that he plays with the freedom and resolve, he showed on Sunday That will improve our CWC chances drastically.

    Gautam Gambhir retires

    Thanks Gauti! He seemed so focussed when in full flow. A fantastic career, with WC'07, WC'11, Ranji'07 and IPLs in his kitty. He had a bit of Inzi in him, when it came to running between the wickets; his running during the 2011 QF is now hilarious in hindsight, but was bloody nerve-wracking when the game was on. Hope he continues his bold and honest approach in his new endeavours.
  6. Afghanistan players have displayed an admirable temperament. Even after being 6 down, they continued fighting. This never-say-die attitude is so refreshing in ODIs. I hope more teams develop in this fashion and enrich the cricketing world. Their presence in Europe is also on the increase from a Cricketing perspective. How Afghanistan is bringing cricket to Germany
  7. Why Kaul? & No Siraj or Saini instead of Shardul? The recurrence of the problem shows that the thought process of the selectors is flawed. Non inclusion of Siraj for the latter half of the England tour was not a one-off decision.

    Khaleel Ahmed

    There is good evidence of Khaleel picking up some tips from Zak. I loved his bowling, but would like to see him play against more seasoned teams, maybe today or later in the tournament. He might be the game changer & surely does add the variety, we need for CWC 2019. Exciting stuff. I hope Khaleel, Siraj & Saini are tried out in the little window of matches left between now & early 2019.
  9. Anyone got tickets allotted for the India Pakistan game? Congrats! Edgbaston is a fantastic place to watch Cricket!

    With generous humming of the "dinga linga linga ding dinga linga linga ding" tune for good measure
  12. Lovely start...come onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
  13. I think this was answered just now by the replays of Stokes's dismissals through this series.. He's squaring up to the outgoing ball and the extent of movement from around the wicket is subtle enough to get that edge. The movement from over the wicket is slightly increased due to the angle of release and makes decisions to leave the ball easier.
  14. I loved the thought process here from Shami. As Bairstow nicked an outswinger in the first innings, I was expecting Shami to bowl an outgoing delivery in the 4th stump area. But this was fast, on target and also the first ball after the lunch break. Fantastic moment.
