    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    @Nikola what do you have to say about this ? Am not a stats guy , but was expecting this . The whole theory of him playing slowly for the team is nonsense . We do better when he gets out early and we don’t win much when he scores either .

    So you agree that we are still stuck in 90s approach

    I don’t agree with the assumption that India wins when he scores as well .

    What’s India’s win percentage when he fails ? That 55% of games since 2016

    None of the players you have mentioned would have played now the way did back when it was actually difficult to bat in the early stages .

    Rohit Sharma's SR in LOIs

    Thank you . This is exactly what I have been pointing out for a long time . 80% of the time he creates more harm to the team . India’s win percentage even when he gets his 100 is quite poor compared to most batsmen around . If you also consider he’s poor on pitches which are not flat and much less reliable when we are chasing , have to think about the value he adds to the team . Hes going to cost us the WC .
  7. We seem to have always some excuse for the way Rohit bats . We convincingly won in SA and NZ with no contribution from Rohit . Iike I said earlier , we do well when he gets out early . As for weak middle order , I would agree to that if sharma was saving us from collapsing on difficult pitches on the contrary he’s the first to go if there is some help for bowlers . This guy tuk tuks on 350 par pitches , if anything puts more pressure on the middle order everytime he gets out after wasting balls .
  8. Yes exactly and pitches got much flatter after 2007 and with the advent of T20s the scores only got bigger . Some fans here got mental over Rohit’s 200s and use this as an excuse , but both tendulkar and Viru got a 200 each towards the end of their career and I have no doubts in my mind they would have done that more often had they been playing now . It’s only the Dhawan doesn’t convert his starts into big ones Sharma looks good . It’s really not a big deal to get a 200 as an opener on flat pitches once in a while these days . It’s when Sharma does not get a big one it concerns me , which is more often . He screws the team badly

    Pakistani reaction to Pulwama attack

    Am one of the guys who visit the site , infact did a lot more there than I did here in the past . One reason probably though is that there is more to disagree in a pak site than an Indian one , so as a forum that’s what appeals to lot of Indians . As much as I hate everything about paks role , one thing am firmly against is this policy of boycotting everytime an incident like this happens. It’s a very soft stance imo . It’s like how you fought as kids , stop talking to someone cos he threw a stick at you . I would beat the **** out of that kid if I could and if my response to stop talking to him , it’s cos am weak . A lot of guys here living overseas have pak friends, are they going to stop talking to them ?
  10. You can go check the stats . Am fairly sure the impact a quick 35 from Viru had is much more than Rohits 60-70 . India’s win percentage is more or less the same Rohit scores a 100 or a zero . He’s a zero impact player .
  11. Rohit takes time to get his feet moving , there is no team startergy of him playing slowly it’s just his limitation . It’s not the big shots , but he will struggle rotating strike in middle overs if hes not played 50-60 balls . He will suck even more if he comes down the order . He can bat at 6 though where he has to just hit out .
  12. Pant obviously . I have been a huge fan of both pant and KL for years and believe these two could turn out be the most destructive opening pair in LOIs ever . At this point though pant is oozing with confidence and runs behind him , you have to play him . KL though , I am surprised he’s even picked ..makes no sense . He needs a longer break and should be spending more time in domestic . Hes spent most of his time on bench even when he was in the ODI squad , I just don’t get the thought process .
  13. This and the eng getting trashed against WI kind puts our performance against these teams into perspective
