  1. Thommo - how quick was he?'

  2. The Indian team seems to be a bit afraid to experiment.They just want the same 11 playing every match.The problem is that in other conditions 2 spinners may not work and another pacer may be needed.An injury to either Bumrah and BK will mean we may play a novice like Thakur or someone who has not played LOIs. The swiftness with which Shami has been discarded after one match, when he is arguably the best fast bowler in Asia is astonishing.Someone needs to tell the team management that while BK can hold runs Shami is more likely to take wickets. Very disappointed with the present tactics.

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/cricinfoat20/content/current/story/661125.html Roberts was recorded at 150ks and Holding at 148ks in 1975.Considering these are speeds over the length of flight, the release speed can be 5kmh extra. So no doubt that Holding and Roberts bowled 150ks.
  4. ICC approves Test Championship, ODI league

  5. IND ODI Sqaud for NZ series announced : Rahul Shami and Umesh out

    Karthik And Shami dropped?WTF. He played 1 match.
  6. Well done Sri Lanka

    After being thrashed by India 9-0 at home they have come back strongly to whitewash Pakistan in UAE. Karunaratne and Chandimal batted very well and Herath destroyed the Pak batting. What a brilliant turn around.
  7. Is Shreyas Iyer ready for international bout

    Yes.Very much.
  8. Guwahati is perenial troublemaker.
  9. So this very tall bowler from Australia, capable of hitting 150ks was last seen in the IPL. He did play couple ODIs and T20s for Australia. I thought in the absence of Starc,Cummins,Hazlewood,Pattinson he will get a chance.But seems CA chose Beherendoff, a 27 year old journeyman.

  11. SJ mere bhai !!!! Shaadi ho gaayi kya?
  12. Arjun Tendulkar selected in Mumbai U-19 squad

    He was clocked at around 130ks in England.
  13. How does Surya Kumar Yadav earns more than Pujara? Whether one wants to be test only or not that decision is to be his and not anyone else's.
  14. Supreme Court Bans Diwali. Rofl Hindus, go fly a kite.

    No.Not always and certainly not in non metros.
  15. Supreme Court Bans Diwali. Rofl Hindus, go fly a kite.

    They will order that cremations be done in furnaces.
  16. Supreme Court Bans Diwali. Rofl Hindus, go fly a kite.

    What mechanism is in place to challenge people who self appoint themselves?Who cannot be asked to be accountable?Who strike down every law that tries to make them accountable? Who snatched away power by means of a judgement giving themselves the power to appoint themselves?
  17. Supreme Court Bans Diwali. Rofl Hindus, go fly a kite.

    Havent Burst Crackers for 12 years.Will buy and burn this year.
  18. Supreme Court Bans Diwali. Rofl Hindus, go fly a kite.

    Hindus must get ready for the next ban, on cremating dead bodies.
  19. Supreme Court Bans Diwali. Rofl Hindus, go fly a kite.

    Their legal mandate isnt to make policies and ban things. Under what law have they banned firecrackers? This is going into the territory of the legislature and executive. The SC snatched away these powers in 1997 by creating a Collegium, a body that has no mention in the constitution. The Indian judiciary lacks accountability and Transparency. They have continued to wield this power because since 1997 no single majority govt has come to power.This sort of interference in policy matters wont last long. The SC and Police also tried to teach a sharp lesson to the criminals who apparently broke "LAW" between 1974 to 1977. We know the end result. When repression is the LAW, Resistance is the Duty.
  20. No.It doesnt.Not presently atleast. It happened during one auction.The 3rd season.
  21. This is idiotic.Why take away from other players? Is it the fault of someone like Stoke that he is good enough for 3 formats.What happens if the Indian uncapped player becomes capped after few weeks? Pujara not able to play T20 is his limitation and not his strength. Cant be paying players for their weaknesses.
