  1. India vs Australia, 5th ODI Nagpur

    It does not matter it is Pant or someone else. They need to invest on player who has ability to win matches.This guy Rahane stinks, he will make merry on easy chases and goes missing when chasing big totals.
  2. India vs Australia, 5th ODI Nagpur

    This Mumbai mafia needs to be silenced , Rahane has no buiness of playing for India in lois or t20s.
  3. India vs Australia, 5th ODI Nagpur

    Rahane needs to go from this odi side, he brings zero value to the team, he is too slow and cannot rotate strike. He does not have ability to hit boundaries also.I would give Pant to open and let him get experience.
  4. Can Toygers avoid follow-on?

    I don't think so Pakistni even with crappy batsmen will do far better than Bangladesh batsman . Pakistani bowling is miles ahead.Their keeper is atrocious for a no 4 batsman, if he was batting at no 7 he would be ok . Your no4/no5 cannot average in low 30s.
  5. This type of pitch is where these fast bowlers need to show some spunk.Shami has a long way to go before he becomes an ace for all conditions.
  6. Can Toygers avoid follow-on?

    They have been exposed again as frauds . No team in the world tries to over play their achievements as these guys. Bangladesh have been given so many resources by ICC.Srilanka when they were coming up you knew they had few class players like Dias. Other than Shakib and to lesser extent Tamim I have not seen one world class player emerge from Bangladesh. Their bowling is atrocious.
  7. Cricket South Africa part ways with Haroon Lorgat

    Never liked him , he was always trying to short change BCCI, even as ICC CEO. His face looks like cunning fox. He single handedly ruined BCCI wonderful relations with CSA.
  8. Unrelenting bowling line-up offers India fresh edge

    they were faster ,
  9. Duleep Trophy 2017-18 India Red won by 163 runs

    I wanted to watch this match but yesterday Ishant's attitude and today Karthik's moronic captaincy is pissing me off.These fast bowlers should be made to bowl 20 plus overs each in these matches otherwise what is point in playing these matches. That NZL A match again was so disappointing.what is point in preparing turners for that they need to prepare greentops and let the young fast bowlers learn how to bowl.
  10. Unrelenting bowling line-up offers India fresh edge

    Philander is not the same bowler under unhelpful conditions. Do you think Srinath was as fast as either Ws on consistent basis , I don't think he was. Akram had ability to bowl as fast as anybody.Younis sure had more pace than Srinath when he was in full swing those toe crushing yorkers are testament to that fact.
  11. Unrelenting bowling line-up offers India fresh edge

    They are , you don't have to have 160 kmph but you cannot be 115 trundler too. 135-140 is minimum range needed to be good fast bowler and for great bowler you should be consistently operating in these speeds with ability to crank up when needed. My point about Srinath was he was never in Akthar speed category and he certainly did not have the skills of two Ws. He had good enough speed but did not have other tools to become a great fast bowler that's all and he was not underrated certainly because he was an Indian fast bowler. So these speed guns reading about him are really irrelevant.
  12. Unrelenting bowling line-up offers India fresh edge

    Pace and quality are interlinked one without the other is almost useless. Do you agree??
  13. Duleep Trophy 2017-18 India Red won by 163 runs

    Why is no fast bowler bowling. What the heck in Sundar doing he is just bowling on pads with no spin or zip or bounce for tall bowler.
  14. Reserve / Backup players available for Team India

    After watching Kuldeep in few matches,I don't think he is a big turner of the ball .Can he be effective overseas is still unknown.
  15. Reopening the debate on best chasers in ODIs

    No they are not especially on spinning wickets.They got two major players out if Ashwin did not bowl that no ball India was winning that match and cup.
  16. I did not say you said Dhoni was better, but as captain CT was Kohli's first tournament. and He did very well by reaching finals.These streaks are important as they build confidence. Dada and his fans have built him a legacy of a great captain just for reaching two ICC finals.
  17. Reopening the debate on best chasers in ODIs

    @maniac You are right WC 2015 we can accept that loss as they had better team. I still feel Kohli did not have trust in bowlers as they failed him in big spots especially t20 world cups so he chose to bowl first when he should have batted.Even broken clock is right sometimes that is what happened to Pakistan in CT.They are a piss poor team which we should be spanking 95 times out of 100.
  18. Dhoni lost more ICC trophies than he has won. Kohli needs to be given time.He did very well reaching finals of major tournament is nothing to be sneezed upon yes it was disappointing loss but the way he has this team playing he will win some ICC cups for sure.
  19. Reopening the debate on best chasers in ODIs

    CT finals was a painful loss and I am still not over it, I still wonder how the heck they beat us.They had no business of winning that match. Indians have lost at least three major cups which they should have won. 2014 t20 finals and 2016 t20 semis (thanks to Ashwin's no ball) and CT finals.India had no business of losing these matches.Until Kohli wins both trophies we can't get over them.
  20. Unrelenting bowling line-up offers India fresh edge

    I am not changing stance at all , Shaun Tait is perfect example of just pace and nothing much else. Perth 2008 Laxman and RP singh were batting in second innings and if you remember Laxman's interview after the match.He was shielding RP from Johnson but not Tail as RP was have little trouble in facing Tait. I don't care what pace Srinath bowled in a spell or spell .He was not as good as or as fast as Ws on consistent basis.
  21. Unrelenting bowling line-up offers India fresh edge

    You think it was just bottle caps, I always thought it was the case but after reading all the past players had to say about them has changed my view. I do think they had more wicket taking abilities.Whole world would not be giving them credit for nothing. If it was just due to cheating then they wouldn't have survived so long in international cricket.
  22. Unrelenting bowling line-up offers India fresh edge

    What good it did to Srinath if he was faster??
  23. Pandya & Pathan: The Tale of Two All-rounders

    That is very harsh he was decent bat for no 8 , the problem is he was expected to deliver more.That was the problem with Fab four Era they rarely had guts to play with five batsmen and have a team that could win consistently. Both both Ganguly and Laxman had to play, if Pathan was made to play as third/fourth seamer and India had three other full time seamers it would have different result for Pathan. Yes he was overhyped to some extent .Ishant Sharma who is still playing based on that Perth spell was hyped more.
  24. Unrelenting bowling line-up offers India fresh edge

    Even speed wise Srinath never had the speed of either Waqar or Akram on a consistent basis. See Srinath might have had some fast spells he even broke Dereck Pringle's nose way back in 1992. But he never was as lethal as Waqar or Wasim. So your point of quoting speed gun readings and quotes about his speed are irrelevant in my view. He never had lethal speed but Younis had that speed early in his career before his back injury. The speed in case of Younis got accentuated by the lengths and movement he generated.Srinath had opposite effect on batsmen due to length which was lot shorter than Younis. Younis was deadly before he lost his speed , I don't want to admit it but those two were so lethal.
  25. Unrelenting bowling line-up offers India fresh edge

    ^^ Why are we Indians obsessed with speed gun readings, it does not matter if srinath was clocked @ 165k . Srinath was not as good as either Waqar or Akram . It took long time for Srinath to find his length.He would have been deadly if he had mastered reverse swing with his inswing action. Speed matters but without any skill or movement that speed is useless. Both Yadav and Aaron have speed other than few matches here and there from Yadav both have done nothing major.Aaron has been total bust if he was any good he would be taking bucket loads of wickets in domestic cricket.Yadav I have hope let us wait and see how he pans out in next couple of years. Both of them made debut in 2011 which is long time ago. If you are averaging over 138 -140 k with ability to bump up your speed when needed you would be just fine if you have other skills which are more important than speed. The difference between Pakistani fast bowlers and Indian fast bowlers IMHO is they don't give up as easily as Indian fast bowlers when things are not going well.
