    Quick Look analysis of India's Venues at the World Cup

    Good analysis..In London,Kennington Oval tickets all sold..and thats a venue where there will be loads of Indians in the ground.so for Australia it will be a big challenge as end to end blue supporters.Even I had applied for this ticket but didnt get it..In UK you put your name in a draw for these events and if yiu are lucky you get the tickets..if not your money is refunded.. For Edgbaston again I think it will be Indians all the way. more than Bangladeshis...remember the CT 2013 Final..Nasser Hussain said India was playing at home..I have been to Edgbaston to see a test match and the ground is pretty small (I remember the match 2011 India England,where Tendulkar got run out when Raina drove straight and the bowler touched it..then Dhoni and Praveen Kumar tonked a few and some of the balls were within 2-3 feet of our vicinity though I was in one of the top rows..)..I am only concerned about old trafford as India falters there a lot..

    Indian all rounders in world cup history

    wow Gangulys stats seems impressive though I guess its been padded up with his centuries against kenya and namibia:)) he scored hundreds against them both..but only 1 catch in 21 matches..strange Yuvi is the best..just see his record..average of 23 with ball and 52 with bat..oh well only if he didnt have cancer he would be playing today as well..it impacted his performance..

    How great was Kapil Dev as an all-rounder?

    No disrespect to anyone but people got bored/frustrated with Kapil in 1994 and wanted him to retire.Even at that age he would have been three times the player Vijay Shankar/Kedar Jadhav is today..and they will take the no 4 and no 6 in world cup 2019..

    How great was Kapil Dev as an all-rounder?

    2nd ODI, India tour of West Indies at Albion, Mar 29 1983 - just before the world cup Kapil Dev scores 72 off 38 balls..i mean think about it.72 off only 38 balls in that era .against freaking Marshall,Holding,Andy Roberts at their peak..then takes 2/33 in 10 overs.india beats windies.West Indies was the best team in the world at that time..then he goes to world cup and becomes Indias highest run getter..enough said..
  5. Mate dont forget 1966 and there is still a chance to win football Nations league in June..erm sorry I guess you were born after 1966:)
  6. Having read all your comments I can only tell you all that you all still dont get it why Jadeja was selected...The reason is for his fielding..as a substitute fielder..think of this..Bumrah or Shami bowls a spell gets tired/slightly injured and walks off..or it is the 45th over and legendary fielder Yuzi Chahal has left the field and AUs needs 55 of 34 balls and there is a difficult catch in deepmid wicket..who would you have as your substitite fielder..Pant or Jadeja or Rayudu..close your eyes and youll get up in cold sweat if its Rayudu or Pant..THATS where Jadeja the sub fielder comes in..he can effect a run out or take a blinder when our legendary fielders like chahal,kuldeep,bumrah are taking some breather and believe me there will be lots of opportunities if this years heat is as bad as last years in June..so I will always bat for Jadeja..and if he is lucky he ll get a game or 2 against BD/Afghanistan..and I bet it was Dhoni s plan to have him;)
  7. Even Mumbais d team has better bowlers than Sikkim..even Wridhiman saha scored a 22 ball century or something in a club match in calcutta

    Indias Reserve World Cup 15

    Just seeing so many threads on what should be ideal wc 15 i have decided to create the reserve 15 member team(basically mixture of ROI and India A)..seeing the team composition i can safely say they could be better than the last 5 teams (i havent even considered the fence sitting ones like DK/Jadeja/Rahul/Vijay Shankar who can be picked in first team) Mayank Agarwal Prithvi Shaw Ajinkya Rahane (Vice Captain) Shreyas Iyer Shubman Gill Manish Pandey Sanju Samson (WK) Ishan Kishan (Reserve WK) Navdeep Saini Jaydev Unadkat Shivam Mavi Mayank Markande Krunal Pandya Shreyas Gopal Ravi Ashwin (Captain) Heck we can have a third 15 which on a good day can beat better teams.. Robin Uthappa (Captain) Suryakumar Yadav Hanuma Vihari Karun Nair Nitish Rana Manan Vohra Ankit Bawne Siddesh Lad KS Bharat (WK) Deepak Chahar Shardul Thakur Varun Aaron Axar Patel Rahul Chahar Washington Sundar We Indians are lucky to have 45 -50 good players.No woder such competition..
  9. Any idea about this Prithvi Raj guy..left arm fast bowler..decent FC stats..avg of 24, 21 wickets..Bought by KKR in IPL..KKR seems to unlock quality bowlers..kuldeep,prasidh krishna,nagarkotti,Mavi (even sunil narine became famous after his kkr stint) and yes he is only 20..
  10. Bumrah..as simple as that..if India wants to win matches and qualify for ko then it has to be him..reason is its england,flat wickets,small grounds..his 10 overs for 48/3 ior 51/2 is a difference between 350 and 320 against SENA teams..if Bumrah flops Kuldeep Chahal will not be able to apply pressure..also in chases his burst at the top and the end..
  11. I think this Anuj Dedha is ur brother or cousin.. have you heard the witnesses. They corroborated the story
  12. india should play with ashwin kuldeep jadeja in india tests with shami and bumrah/umesh nobody can beat us..with jadeja coming at 8 its a safe batting line up
  13. are you kidding me..if Amit had attacked him shouldnt he have notified the authorities..instead this guy brings 15 goons..repeat 15 GOONS with hockey sticks and rods to beat him up..Amit Bhandari would have died if he didnt run

    Training camp before WC 2019

    IPL Final is on 19th May and Indias world cup match is on Jun 05, at The Rose Bowl, Southampton (where Pujara scoreda century last year). so India has only 15 days to prepare.Have heard pakistan will be in England preparing from 1st /2nd week of May..will that give them an added advantage..also where will be the camp organised..should it be Dharamsala to mimic Englands swing friendly pitches or will it be on the flat road of Bangalore..chinnaswamy..these two weeks will be very crucial and I am not even sure it will be two weeks..mere 8 days as players would request some leave after the hectic IPL..
  15. we got rid of Mongia in first place.. we wanted a better batsman lol. Now dhoni back to sq zero
