    putrevus reacted to NameGoesHere in England Cricket Board is run by buffoons - conclusive proof!   
    This is perfectly fine and in fact we should encourage it.  Here's why.
     
    In 1963 England started the world's first one day domestic competition, and in 1971 England played the first ODI. Forty years later India had taken over as the financial powerhouse of the ODI world.
     
    In 2002, England started the first domestic 20:20 competition.  In 2008 came the IPL and, well, we all know where we are today, eh?
     
    England doesn't realise it, but they working (unpaid) for us as our free cricket laboratory.  Let the poor buggers experiment away, we'll just take over when the time is ripe, Bosedk!

    putrevus got a reaction from TheWall in IPL 2018 | Match 14 | MI Vs RCB | Mumbai | 8 PM IST | 17 April 2018   
    Chahal has been a very big disappointment in this IPL. He is too slow thru air giving batsmen enough time to launch.

    putrevus got a reaction from MechEng in Hasn't ball tampering always been a concerted effort?   
    This is why I rate Glenn Mcgrath in my top three bowlers of all time, Ambrose and Marshall being other two. Being so consistent in his line and length is one talent people underestimate.
     
    Ian Chappell rates Lillee higher than Mcgrath but I don't think Lillee had this ability of being this accurate and consistent.Mcgrath even today would be better than many bowlers.

    putrevus got a reaction from Khota in KL Rahul smashes fastest IPL fifty..   
    Dhawan has lot of holes in his technique but it was due Rahul's injuries and lack of scores he got a second chance.To his credit he has done nothing wrong except fail one test in SA.Rahul had his chances but he has never cemented his place with big scores.He looked awful too in SA.
     
    Dhawan looked second best player in Odi series in SA and people are gunning for his spot.He is out and out match winner in Odis.They don't come very often.

    Very good post, I specifically liked the Chaminda Vaas and Australian bowling in 2004 India tour examples. I also believe that if 3-4 bowlers work together as a team, they can get even the most elite batsmen out on a cemented road. For example if the bowlers plan to keep it simple and bland by bowling five out of six deliveries in the corridor of uncertainity, they can bore the batsman and force him to poke at the ball leading to a slip catch. 
     
    The video below is a great example of how to bowl on a road. Very simple bowling from Mcgrath, no 150 kph deliveries, no prodigious swing and no steep bounce too, just plain variations in line and length. Just look at the ball which got Nass out, Mcgrath bowls few centimeters shorter than the previous ball and slightly close to the stumps and Nass makes the mistake of coming forward to the ball instead of staying on backfoot and leaving it.

    putrevus got a reaction from GoldenSun in KL Rahul smashes fastest IPL fifty..   
    He did play in middle in SL and failed albeit only in limited number of matches. He is his own enemy after failing in middle order he went back to be an opener in List A and he didn't do that great there either.
     
    Just because others did it Rahul also can do it.His List A strike rate is 74.1 and with that strike rate he will not be great option in middle order.
     
    He did play in SA for two tests and flopped miserably. He should play first two tests in England and call should be taken then.
     
    He is not India's best in anything, he did play in T20s in middle order in Sl but did not do much either.IMHO he should play as WK  in all limited overs and also try it in FC levels.

    putrevus reacted to The Realist in MS Dhoni’s strike rate a big concern, says Krishnamachari Srikkanth   
    Whatever aura there was is long long gone. Opposing teams are now happy to see him at the crease accumulate dot balls and generally suck the momentum out of the innings. 
     
    Never mind the strike rate its a struggle for Dhoni to get singles thesedays.

    Dhoni if he has any shame needs to retire , he never was good in T20s to begin with, now has become horrible and down right putrid.

    If Anwar is called great batsman, then there is something wrong with word great. Lara and Anwar should never be in one sentence.Kaha Raja Bhoj aur Kaha gangu teli.
     
    He was ok batsmen but nothing amazing about him at all.

    I still am wondering what did selectors smoke when they selected him for SL series.I would have loved to see under 19 stars instead of this buffoon there.

    Its one thing to be oblivious of one's ability or lack of it, but its another when you are quite arrogant and ignorant about the game. He arrogantly says that bowling 145-150 is of no use. Because in his mind, he thinks he can outread the batsmen. And he goes on to say, even if he had an option, he would not increase his pace.
     
    WE DON'T NEED SUCH POISON ANYWHERE NEAR OUR CRICKET TEAM!!!

    Ghanta.
     
    Apparently you are swallowing the BS that Australian cricket board's splurting out - 3 batsmen decided to tamper the ball, and the bowlers were neither told, nor did they notice.  They are all innocent lambs who just close their eyes and run in hard to "express" their natural skills.

    Ian Chappel is one more guy who starts cribbing about ranking as soon India become no 1, he already wrote a column few backs on how India and Australia series against SA will determine true no1.
     
    He would have never imagined in his wildest dreams about this scandal.He would have written another columns on how India does not deserve no1 rank.
     
    India has never claimed it is best ever side in the world. All they are claiming is they are the best side for past two years and hands down it is the best side  in world right now.

    These aussies (Smith and Bancroft along with CA) want us to believe that this is first time it happened and these three players all batsmen mind you went out of the way to help bowlers without bowlers even knowing it or wanting it.
     
    This is some cock and bull story which all parties involved are trying to pull. This looks like a well orchestrated plan where Warner now will appeal and get ban reduced for himself and other two .People will singing praises on how tough CA have acted and they continue their merry way by squashing the real truth.

    I know you dont care because India is at top. These rankings would be oh so wonderful and correct if pakistan was at top. Your arguments are hateful and full of resentment.
     
    There is something called home advantage. The way to be #1 is to win at home and minimize your losses abroad. India has done that and is being rewarded by a high ranking. Now you can win more abroad in perfect world but being 1 and 1a is still at the top of the heap. 
     
    More you diminish India #1 ranking more hateful you become. I like it.

    These formulas for #1 ranking were determined beforehand. Now India is at the top and the validity of the ranking systems is being questioned. I say it is hate.

    Home broadcaster won't try anything like that after paying such huge amount for TV rights.
     
    It's no surprise that most of the ball tampering incidents are caught in away matches.
