  1. Virat likes Rahane at #4 in ODIs :((

    Manish Pandey is good at #4 overseas. He had a ~100 average in the SA-A series, and has a hundred in Australia. And can accelerate a lot better than Rahane.
  2. India against Spin

    The commentators threw in some stats during the match that India have the worst T20 strike rate against spin. If true, Lol@ Indians being best players of spin.
  3. MS Dhoni mega discussion thread

    Try IPAs and wheat beers
  4. MS Dhoni mega discussion thread

    After seeing the last two matched, I am left wondering who is slower - Dhoni or Dinesh Karthik?
  5. Let's not mix ODIs and T20s. This is a pretty good combination for ODIs. But not T20s where we need power hitters. KLR, Krunal and Pant would be a much better combination for T20s..
  6. Your T20 squad to face Australia?

    Best possible T20 squad:1. Rohit Sharma /KL Rahul2. Rishabh Pant (wk)3. Virat Kohli (C)4. Suresh Raina 5. Manish Pandey /KL Rahul6. Krunal Pandya 7. Hardik Pandya 8. Bhuveneshwar Kumar 9. Kuldeep Yadav / Akshar Patel10. Yuzvendra Chahal 11. Jasprit Bumrah Reserves KL Rahul Axar Patel Shreyas Iyer Siddharth Kaul/Jaidev Unadkat
  7. If required rate is >4 then dhoni should bat at #11

    Make it 6 instead of 4, and you are spot on!
  8. India A team's tour of South Africa

    He is like the Bhuwneshwar Kumar of 3 years ago. He did very well with the new ball when he was able to seam it, but had his ass handed to him with the old ball.
  9. India A team's tour of South Africa

    My team Rohit Dhawan Kohli K.L. Rahul(Also backup opener) / Iyer Manish Pandey Dhoni/Pant Jadhav/Pandya Kuldeep Bumrah /Chahal Bhuvneshwar / Axar(Subcontinent) Shami
  10. India A team's tour of South Africa

    Iyer, Pandey, Axar, Chahal and Thakur must definitely be drafted into the senior team by all means. Time to say goodbye to Yuvraj, Ashwin, Jadeja and Umesh from limited overs teams. Pant and Krunal (although both need improvement) should also be given a genuine opportunity to compete against Dhoni and Jadhav.
  11. Your test squad for Sri Lanka tour?

    KL Rahul/ Dhawan (If Rahul injured) M Vijay Pujara Kohli Rahane Ashwin Saha Jadeja Pandya Shami Bumrah/Siraj
  12. We should send a full fledged test squad and a young ODI squad. Ashwin, Jaddu, Kohli, Rahane should rest after the test series. KLR, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Kuldeep and Chahal should play all 5 ODIs.
  13. Correction .. India had the choice of going in with Pant who can hit 4 sixes in 4 balls or get out 1st ball OR Someone like Karthik who can score runs equal to 4 sixes in 24 balls, or only score 2 runs in those 24 balls. We chose the latter. KD Karthik c †SD Hope b Joseph 2 (19)
  14. Kaka Karthik in for Yuvraj. Pant gets to carry drinks again :)
  15. Hoping for the best Very disappointed with Virat honestly. He is giving his bro Yuvraj a long rope at the expense of the national team and our World Cup 2019 chances.
  16. India ‘A’ teams for South Africa tour announced

    Fair selection. Here is the schedule for the Sri Lanka tour. We have sufficient gap between the two ODI series to select players who do well in the ODI leg of the A tour for the SL ODIs. Warm-up match: July 21 and 22 10 AM (IST) 1st Test: July 26 to 30 in Kandy at 10 AM (IST) 2nd Test: Aug 4 to 8 in Galle at 10 AM (IST) 3rd Test: Aug 12 to 16 in Colombo at 10 AM (IST) ODI series: 1st ODI: Aug 20 in Colombo (R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium) at 2:30 PM (IST) 2nd ODI: Aug 24 in Dambulla (Rangiri Dambulla International Cricket Stadium) at 2:30 PM (IST) 3rd ODI: Aug 27 in Pallekele International Cricket Stadium at 2:30 PM (IST) 4th ODI: Aug 30 in Pallekele International Cricket Stadium at 2:30 PM (IST) 5th ODI: Sept 3 in Colombo (R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium) at 2:30 PM (IST) 1 T20I: Sept 6 in Colombo (R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium) at 7:00 PM (IST)
  17. Thinking of it, wasn't Ashwin and Jaddu';s dysfunctional negative bowling kumle's responsibility? Him having been a spinner himself. You can't squarely blame Kohli for everything that went wrong.
  18. Expected team: Dhawan Pants Kohli Rahane/Yuvraj Dhoni Jadhav Pandya Jadeja Kuldeep Bhuwneshwar Shami/Bumrah
  19. We should give Virat credit where due. For example, by not playing Rahane, he ensured we could atleast make it to the finals.
  20. Australia have announced a pretty solid team. If the right set of players is selected, I will look forward to this series more than the west indies holiday tour. http://www.cricbuzz.com/cricket-series/2586/australia-a-and-india-a-in-south-africa-tri-series-2017/squads Thread to be updated as we get more info
  21. Between Dhoni and Pant, i believe there should be a natural passing of the baton. Both should play alongside, and Dhoni should retire when Pant has proven himself to be the natural successor to Dhoni and is consistently starts performing better than Dhoni. As of now, Dhoni is still our best wicketkeeper bat, isn't easy to replace, and there are no proven replacements.
  22. My theory - A lot of those mature team selection and tactical decisions in the test series were actually Kumble's. Lately, as the communication broke down, we saw more of the real Kohli at work. What I did not like about his captaincy - 1) Favoritism with the selection of Yuvraj and Ashwin at crucial junctures. Especially Ashwin in the final. While 70+ posters at ICF could predict that the spinners are going to get tonked against Pakistan, and likes of Shami and Umesh would be much more successful, Kohli could not 2) Poor tactical decisions on the field at crucial junctures
