    Smriti Mandhana was Inspired by Sanga Not Gangully

    Basically Mandhana is saying that she has no problem with the pull shot :p :D

    solid soft diplomacy at work here... we Indians want to build good relations with all the countries in the world except Pakistan... :) :p
  3. @rkt.india also the low bounce in India is disheartening to fast bowlers. they give up too quickly looking at the impotent bounce in the wickets.
  4. 1. sure, In Indian conditions, the shine on the ball wears down quickly... thats why bhuvi regresses from a hissing cobra to a toothless tadpole after his first spell... 2. sa conditions have everything working for fast bowlers. there is tremendous amount of bounce too..
  5. Mad respect for Glenn Mcgrath and Kapil Dev. The former took loads of wickets with a chewtiya ball, the latter in chewtiya pace bowling conditions without bottle caps and reverse swing.
  6. someone on quora expressed this in a more elaborate manner... https://www.quora.com/Cricket-sport-What-is-the-difference-between-a-kookaburra-a-duke-and-an-S-G-ball Kookaburra Balls have a low seam which generally does after say 20 overs. This makes the Ball Swing more in the First 20 overs assisting the Bowling team and gradually making it suitable for Batsmen to play their Shots. But as the seam is lost, there will be no grip for the spinners. The Dukes Ball have a Good Seam and the seam holds good up to 50-55 Overs if maintained well and swings the Most. It is the most bowler friendly ball assisting seam bowlers. The SG Ball has the most upright and prominent Seam but Swings for only 10 overs in Indian Conditions as one major disadvantage is it loses its shine quickly. But the seam is intact for nearly 80-90 overs making it more susceptible for Reverse Swing after 40-50 overs and also Spinners get appreciable Drift in the air and Grip off the pitch when the ball lands on the Seam.
  7. sg and dukes have a prominent seam until the third session begins. kookaburra loses its seam within the first session, its impossible to swing the ball with negligible seam.
  8. Just because he is a NASA scientist, his word ain't gospel. I would like to hear what Wasim Akram thinks on this topic.

    Hardik Pandya not a Test allrounder yet - Holding

    Towards the end of the article, Cricinfo themselves couldn't help mention that holding's analysis was scathing. He always had terrible agenda against Indian cricket.

    Swing bowling Conditions in Pakistan..

    Would you say conditions in Pakistan aid swing bowling more than spin bowling? Would you put playing pre-shoaib akhtar Pakistan during Imran/Wasim/waqar era in the same category as SENA? Discuss..

    Perfect test pace quartet of all time?

    Conventional Swing/ reverse swing Speed Seam Hit the deck/ Line and length/ workhorse stamina These are the 4 ingredients of pace bowling. I will take one from each category. Wasim, backup steyn Holding, backup waqar McGrath, backup asif Ambrose, backup Walsh ...

    Indian batting average in test cricket this year

    Murali Vijay is a useless fellow. I had hopes that he is our next VVS.

    Whats this agenda that India Today is running against Pandya?

    Not every all-rounder has a specialist primary and a decent secondary skill like sobers, kallis, Ashwin, Dev etc.. There are all-rounders like Flintoff, stokes, shakib, moeen who are decent at both and not world class in any of the skills. Problem with pandya is that he is in the bottom tier of the second group. He is a Flintoff /stokes type decent at both player - but at the same time lots of work to be done in both his skills. Maybe people have agenda on him but his lack of urgency to cement his place in the team with crucial performances, is only giving his naysayers more power.

    Ashwin - Top scorer in both the innings !!!

    This is an excellent photo 1. Not a selfie 2. Two genius level talents who can solo a game on their own... 3. Chewtiyaaa franchise though :p
  16. They will feed them grilled kebabs in a closed door meeting... No other grilling :p

    Time to relegate Vijay and Karthik to TNPL

    Talk for yourself.. :p

    Time to relegate Vijay and Karthik to TNPL

    Also your boyfriend.. he played every idiotic game before this and then missed out on that one test series where he is the MVP. Pffftt..
  19. Everyone writing essays... So much frustration :/
  20. We hear stories of how Clive Lloyd or Steve Waugh prepared their teams with a great vision. Don't know why ours don't.
  21. MSD had so much agenda too... He would keep selecting medium Pacers and not give enough oppurtunities to faster bowlers. He is like an adamant mule who will keep making the same mistakes..
  22. And finally why bcci stopped our I Dian players from going to county cricket and felt so anxious to prevent it that they actually scheduled an solo Afghan test. Bcci couldn't bear kohli playing for a county team.. Now face the moojick d-holes..
  23. Both MSD and vk lacked proactiveness.. MSD is careless and expects that his test team will prepare themselves. He doesn't oversee the preparations. Virat kohli is plain overconfident. Both of them have an agenda to promote the players who are backed by the same corporate interests backing them. I heard stories of Imran khan selected a teenage waqar after being impressed by his net bowling and fast tracked him into the national team. He personally mentored Wasim Akram during the same time.
  24. 6 batsmen + pant + ishu ummi shami shardul... Since bumrah and boobsey are unfit.. And we would have done much better..

    Sourav Ganguly could be next BCCI president, say reports

    He should go contest in West Bengal elections. There is a massive anti incumbency wave there against Mamta Didi and there is no good competition for her. SRT can do all these Chota mota bcci president jobs..
