    King Kohli averages 59 in ODIs now

    Was trying to find the right words to describe Kohli's feat when I read this Tweet by Sachin - 'The intensity and consistency with which you bat is just amazing. @imVkohli, congratulations on achieving 10,000 runs in ODIs. Keep the runs flowing...' Obviously none of us here have watched Don Bradman play, but you imagine how it would have felt to witness a batsmen who seems so much head and shoulders above his peers..There have been batsmen who have had purple patches that lasted many years - Just look at Ponting's record b/w 2000-2006 - there have been batsmen whose gameday intensity was like none other, but no one, absolutely no one has combined the two traits for as long as Kohli has. It almost feels like one should simply hand Kohli the greatest ODI batsmen of all time plaque now until you realize he trails Sachin by almost 9000 runs in total tally. But this is batting at a completely different level. This is a mission to decimate opposition bowlers.

    IND v WI | 1st ODI | Guwahati

    Today, I had a moment of epiphany. Virat Kohli is a better batsmen than Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. Never thought I'd say that about any batsmen in my lifetime..
  3. Member has a point. It is almost jarring to see these guys absolutely wallop bowling attacks on flat decks in ODIs, only to struggle to hit double digits against bowler friendly conditions in tests..

    Where are the Kolkata Knight Riders Fan?

    This is a good team. They tick the boxes for many pre-conditions for a successful T20 team... They have explosive batting at the top (Narine, Lynn) They have mystery spinner (Narine) They have commendable domestic fast bowling prospects (Prasidh, Mavi, Nagarkoti) They have experienced finisher in the middle order (DK) They have impressive power hitter in the lower order (Russell) Never understood why the cricbuzz guys were low on them from the tournament start.. If anything, with Gill, Mavi and Nagarkoti getting more experienced after 1 yr of playing, they will become even good next year..
  5. Its not all MSD.. CSK team brass has cracked the T20/IPL code. With or without MSD, they will - Always pick a squad that allows them to play with 7 bowling options. - Always pick a squad with enough high quality spinners that gives them a distinct advantage in Chepauk. - Always pick a squad with enough high quality Indian batsmen that can cope with mystery spinner thread. - Always pick a squad with foreign players who are primarily fast bowling all-rounders. - Prefer experienced players to upcoming jump-starts - Not bid high for marquee fast bowlers like Starc, Cummins who are likely to break down during the season Just by doing the above, you can have a solid squad every time you step on the field..
  6. CSK staff should run clinics for some of these teams in the off-season. This is peak 'snatching defeat from the jaws of victory' by RR.
  7. OMG they scored 30 off the last 5.
  8. How can you be only 2 down and still not be able to chase 60 off the last 5? not only that, you are going to be short by 25 runs!!
  9. @velu @The Dark Horse Thanks! I like this Prasidh guy.
  10. Only way Stuart Binny gotten this far is if there was a 'Son of former player' quota.
  11. How fast is Prasidh bowling? late 130 ks? early 140ks?
  12. CSK against SRH - Needed 43 runs off last 3 overs, 2 wickets in hand - RESULT - WIN RR against KKR, Needs 43 runs off last 3 overs, 7 wickets in hand, RESULT - TBD
  13. Hate to say this, but SRH are the favorites to win at this time..
