    Bangladesh has only managed to be a consistent competitor of Afghanistan ( less than 5 years old in international cricket ) 
     
    If there were runs for attitude, Bangladesh and its  fans would have won the WC by now. Everyone wears their attitude on their sleeve, but does not perform. 
     
    At at this rate, Afghanistan would overtake them in test and ODI in next 2-3 years.

    Another day, another match winning performance..
     
    We have very few players averaging above 50S in Ranjis but there is only ONE guy in the history of Ranji (India's premier domestic) who averages above 50 at a strike rate over 105... and the guy name is KEDAR Jadhav!!!...strike rate above 100 and average over 50....This is over 10 years of domestic cricket...that is 10 years of consistent aggressive match winning batting.. UNBELIEVABLE!!! Only guy close to a strike rate of 100 was Sehwag but he was not even close to an average of 50...  
     
    Most of guys who had average over 50 had strike rate in  80s. There is a huge difference between strike rate of 80s and strike rate of 100 plus with average above 50. Even in international cricket, his strike rate is 108 and average close to 45
     
    But our selectors wasted 5 years of his life. And for whom.  To try out duds like Rayadu and Rahane in LOI who can't play with a strike rate above 75.
     
    This guy can bowl, wicket keep and bat at any position... Lowest percentage of dot balls...
     
    But this guy is severally underrated.
     
    Join the thread if you are his fan.. HATERS, STAY AWAY!!

    USA sports is built on the concept of specialization - they are the masters of sub-dividing physical skills and specialization.  Look at baseball, "american" football - each of this sports creates specialist positions by skill and related physical traits - A starting pitcher will be a very different body type than a designated hitter.  NFL players are almost like different species - compare a 350 pound lineman to a lithe wide receiver and you'll see what I mean.   But ask the USA to put together a Rugby team that can compete at the highest level and see them struggle.   
     
    Of course there's no denying the peaks of scientific training, medicial treatment and other expertise in American sport - but that's a direct result of being able to provide the most funds.  Thrown enough money and priority on a task, and a society will soon start seeing results - case in point - the chinese olympic efforts.

    "Tommy John" surgeries are high probability for success, but they don't help cricket bowlers.  Shoulder is a very complex joint, and surgery is not a no-brainer choice for patients I would think.

    I still remember laughing my ass off reading "Charlie Wilson's war" 10-12 years ago, and the author talked about how they put together a complex deal to pump in arms and equipment into Af-Pak involving the Egyptians, Israelis etc - and they started having major logistical issues because the mules that were being sent to Pakistan were dying in huge numbers.  Care to guess why they were dying?

    That's about the best billo rani can muster...
     
    If both Ishant and Amir play a dozen more tests or so, and Ishant Sharma's going to have a better career test average than Qaidi # Paanch.   That's if the coward doesn't get his way and retire from tests to 'save' himself for T20 leagues.  I'm not going to bother, but Ishant's test numbers over the last 2-3 years, especially away, are going to be yards better than Mohammed '130k' Amir.

    The numbers were presented in the previous page, too bad you didn't respond to that. If you could take some time out and pin point your exact grouse we could arrive at something substantial. If 9(22) constitutes tonking, may be you have exceptionally high standards.

    No spinner is going to be effective on a day 1 pitch with no real rough/foot holes to utilize. The reason ashin bowled so much is because apart from Bumrah, shami and Ishant, Kohli had no one else to turn to.
     
    I don't like to see Bumrah bowl 20 overs a day regularly. That doesn't bode well.

    For 1-2 bad overs in a 5-days game, if ppl have to post it as if it were criminal, it highlights the desperation 
     
    Be happy that after a long time, Ind has some material to work with to shape in to a good AR and when the player has performed in one way or the other in every series that he has played so far

    Aur ek aa gaya - Scorecard analyst.  His first spell wasn't that bad - did you watch the game or are you just passing judgement on his "bowling figures".  Of course his runs conceded are dismal and unacceptable.  But that happens once in a while, and its affordable for him to 'press' and have such a bad spell when we were on top.

    His first spell was OK - picked up 1 for 16 in 6 odd overs.  Went for a few in a couple of overs  later on- I felt he was pressing a bit, trying to make something happen in that middle session where nothing was happening for us.  His  bowling is clearly a work in progress.  Still you'd take that from your 5th bowler - he did chip in with a top order wicket after all.

    So true.  Where were all the vultures on this thread when he took out Cook 2 times in a row with *en Jaffas?   Take the conditions into account a bit.  Ball wasn't turning at all today, England wouldn't dare risk a track that will turn from Day 1.  Not against us.  They'd rather keep it green and moist - too bad for them that it's backfiring anyway.
     
    There's still plenty of time left in this test for him to come back and win it for us in the 2nd dig - provided the batsmen deliver for once and put up a nice 420-450 on the board.
