  1. Agarkar is speaking like how I want him too. Always liked him as a player evn though the world hated him for his bowling. Shabash Aggy.
  2. This guy is very filmy. I think with him we are definitely on for next 5 years of good entertainment in terms of both nautankibaazi and some decent performance here and there. Sreesanth 2.0 who has better cricket skills overall.
  3. I would pick Umesh. Should have picked someone who has been playing cricket and can bowl fast on these slow UAE tracks. it would compliment Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah well.

    Mohammad Amir avg 80 in last 8 games with jst 3 wkts

    Daymn he didn’t do “shyt” against Zim in all those games? I mean he did do “shyt” I guess.

    Pathetic middle order is an understatement

    Yaar other batsman in the squad ka naam toh dekho - Rayudu and Pandey are the only other options in this asia cup squad. So based on that I pick Karthik as I feel he is better than Rayudu and someone who I trust more than Rayudu. Anyways with Kohli coming back, I won’t take any of them. I have said long before I wanted Shubman Gill or someone drafted in by now so we could get some new players ready. ideally it would be nice to see one youngester in the line up like Shubman. A line up like this could be brilliant. Order can change Rohit Dhawan Kohli Rahul Gill/Krunal/Nitish Pant Pandya You have lot of firepower there whch is very much needed in todays game at the death. Also Pant can be used as an opener and Rahul can play at 3 also if required.

    Pathetic middle order is an understatement

    Karthik has been poor in the past but with recent t20 performance, he deserves his chance a bit. Yes it wa sin t20 and yes it was against okayish bowler, but not everyone can do what Karthik did. I will give him this series. I will though play Rahul ahead. at no 3. Also, Karthik is batting better than Dhoni, so him there in middle order can help us for this particular series as we do not have Kohli who has been vital for us all these years in the middle. We have limted options as per the squad picked and going by that squad my order against Afghanistan would be: Rohit Dhawan Rahul Manish Karthik(WK)

    Rohit should lead our WC19 campaign?

    Different definition for big games for all. Big game player is not defined by scoring in one big game or not scoring in one big game. If someone doesn’t score in finals or semi finals but scores in other games leading to the world cup, thats big performance too. For example game against Pak or Aus or South Sfrica or England. Example of Tendulkar failing in final but performing well in other games leading to it would be appropriate. Same thing for Kohli like he did aginst Pak in 2015 which was big too. On his day Dhawan is good and will start in the Indian line up because o( the reason you me’tioned, but just fyi, big games are also the regular top featured games leading up to the final. Yuvi failed in the big match too like against Pakistan in the semis, but was a top player through out leadingnup to that. Kohli similarly failed in 2015 wc playoffs, but was vital in our LOI tournaments like champions trophy or even in t20 tournaments. So I consider him a big game player who has just failed in certain big games like any top player would. So going back to topic, we can’t appoint Dhawan as captiai of course but we can’t be appointing Rohit at this time. Let him bat freely like he does. Kohli likes to bat with captaincy pressure and Rohit is doing better without much responsibility as captain. Post world cup, we can see if we need a change, but for now, I will keep things as is as captaincy is concerned.

    Shocking: Rahul dropped again...Rayudu will bat at 3

    Rohit trusts Rayudu more hecause he did decent job for Mumbai Indians under him. Rahul needs to play.

    Send Bumrah Home

    No might have two more games to go against Pak in this tournament. I rather have them play that. I don't want Hong Kong game kind of situation any time that too against Pak

    Rohit should lead our WC19 campaign?

    India in recent past have had a fragile batting order. This has been one of the biggest reasons why we have lost so many games. Only two guys who have been most consistent have been Kohli and Rohit. Kohli is batting well under captaincy pressure, his record proves that. Rohit is performing well when he has no pressure. We don't want poor starts in the world cup with Rohit having extreme amount of pressure as a captain. Changing captaincy now might impact India negatively in terms of getting the best out of Kohli and Rohit in a big tournament. Kohli and Rohit have been focused a lot on their batting and enjoying their respective role. I think that should continue. I would stick with Kohli as captain for 2019 and we can go on from there.
  11. My colleague just now after seeing Bumrah celebrate that last wicket Colleague: So the blue guys are winning I see Me: Kind off, we bowled well and now need to chase down their total Colleague: looks like you got it. Lets go the blue guys
  12. Good comeback by boys after that Malik p’ship. Boys doing well. Shabash Ladko, jaldi se do aur lejao, and hopefully catch doesn’t go to Dhawan, enough of habru celebration. Looking more and more lame now.

    Bollywood's most impactful films

    Swades was a mastepiece which was even liked by people from overseas. I think Ashutosh Gowariker deserves a tip of the hat for the effort he put into this movie as it had some brilliant scenes. I felt SRK was brilliant in this movie, one of his best efforts. AR Rahman’s music was again top notch too and together the combination deserves special mentiona and this movie surely deserves a mention in the Bollywood’s Hall of fame.

    Why do most of Bollywood stars speak English?

    There will be few wannabees in Bollywood or anywhere for that matter who would feel that doing certain things or as in this case speaking in English is cool. But most of them speak in English because they have grown up in an environment from where they have picked up speaking English and it actually comes naturally to them. Also in a country where English is a common language it shouldn’t matter. But yeah, making fun of other actors is childish and foolish.I don’t know if top actors actually do that. Only few wannabees will make fun of a fellow actor for his/her English.
  15. I come to every Ravi Shastri related thread just to read the comments. The amount of gaalis he gets left and right is absolute crazy . Don’t think someone has gotten so much love in the past from indian fans as much as Sir Ravi is getting since he took over the reigns.

    James Anderson, 10 years on

    Absolute legend. We are lucky to have such a bowler play in this era.

    Tennis: US Open 2018

    Absolute horrific behavour from Serena in the final. Refereeing was bad but Serena’s behavour was worse. She should have taken the decision sportingly. The whole drama about “I have a daughter” etc was bs and nasty. Referee just penalised her for one point and she kept on going. I do feel referee could have been less harsh but he was still well within his rules to put the violation. Serena’s behavour was absolutely apalling.

    D2 Predictions

    England 225 India 210-4 Rahul 68 Pujara 35
  19. It will be pathetic to blame one thing or one person for the loss. Our batting was just not good enough on regular basis whether you say your favorite wasn’t picked in the line up or not. These guys were expected to perform better than they did. Batting under performed and now deserves to be called overrated line up by anyone until they do well overseas. I still have confidence in Rahane and Pujara down the line but for now, all of them including our pathetic opening stand this series will be considered overrated. Our line up needs to come back up with a strong performance Down Under with a different openinng pair as this one clearly isn’t working.

    Tennis: US Open 2018

    I don’t like demeaning Tennis greats like. NAdal and his fans, but its pathetic to see 7th time in a row Nadal retiring from a game when he is 2 sets down in a grandslam. Just complete the freaking game and lose like a man and behave like a champion. He messes up his legacy by doing this stuff. No one is going to take away the honor he has of winning 17 slams but he and his fans must take the criticism that Nadal does this shyt every time he feels he can’t come back in the game. This is 7 times now. Absolute Bs.
  21. “Mahi maar raha hai” Rohit should take a back seat and let Mahi do that talking. Lee needs to remember. @velu @Laaloo
  22. I am glad we are not making any statements for Pakistan game for a change. Its fine to go as underdog and conquer the tournament. It will not be easy without Kohli to be frank a d we will be tested, but we can still win this tournament.
