  1. That is something you have posted too i.e. Bhuvi is an improved bowler in the last 20 months (1 Apr 2017) ....

  2. In Ind, hyperboles are taken seriously at face value
  3. So he is not an improved bowler (for whatever reasons)
  4. @sandeep argument is that Bhuvi is an improved bowler in the last 20 months (which implies that he only looks good if we take his stats from the date he chose) .... if we take last 12 months or from Jan 1st 2018 for e.g., which falls within the last 20 months, it is not acceptable since it would show that he has not improved .... for an improving bowler last 12 months should be better than last 20 months .... anyways, that is how it goes with fanboys
  5. Below is the last accepted position, which shows that he is not an improved bowler (unless improvement implies becoming an even slower trundler) Accept the stats and move on .... the discussion is past the point of all that (the context or whatever bedtime stories you tell yourself have been considered) View overall figures [change view] Primary team India Start of match date greater than or equal to 1 Jan 2018 Involving the player B Kumar (INDIA) Bowling position between 1 and 2 Qualifications wickets taken greater than or equal to 3 Ordered by bowling average (reverse) Page 1 of 1 Showing 1 - 4 of 4 First Previous Next Last Return to query menu Cleared query menu Overall figures Player Mat Inns Overs Mdns Runs Wkts BBI Ave Econ SR 4 5 B Kumar 16 16 121.0 6 648 17 4/45 38.11 5.35 42.7 1 0 KK Ahmed 2 2 18.0 0 103 3 3/48 34.33 5.72 36.0 0 0 Mohammed Shami 1 1 10.0 0 58 3 3/58 19.33 5.80 20.0 0 0 JJ Bumrah 12 12 92.5 8 342 20 4/35 17.10 3.68 27.8 1 0 View overall figures [change view] Primary team India Start of match date greater than or equal to 1 Jan 2018 Type of bowler (by style) pace bowler Involving the player B Kumar (INDIA) Bowling position between 1 and 3 Qualifications wickets taken greater than or equal to 3 Ordered by bowling average (reverse) Page 1 of 1 Showing 1 - 4 of 4 First Previous Next Last Return to query menu Cleared query menu Overall figures Player Mat Inns Overs Mdns Runs Wkts BBI Ave Econ SR 4 5 B Kumar 16 16 121.0 6 648 17 4/45 38.11 5.35 42.7 1 0 Mohammed Shami 2 2 20.0 0 104 3 3/58 34.66 5.20 40.0 0 0 KK Ahmed 5 5 40.0 1 210 9 3/13 23.33 5.25 26.6 0 0 JJ Bumrah 12 12 92.5 8 342 20 4/35 17.10 3.68 27.8 1 0 For such comical support, I hope he does well in at least a few games here and there
  6. common sense dictates that like what you claim if he is constantly improving his latest numbers should be better (last 12 months should be better than last 20 months) .... if you want to go back random 20 months to make Bhuvi look better for e.g., and then, unlike your claim, it shows that Bhuvi is not an improved bowler if his last 12 months numbers don't support that .... By posting the above (Bhuvi appear better for last 20 months vs 12 months), you only discredited your line of argument .... also we had discussed ODIs, why are you now into tests now? I have taken the stats since Jan 1 2018, last 12 months, not some random dates to fit a player .... Even in tests, now if we go back to 1 Jan 2017 (which is not an arbitrary date) iew overall figures [change view] Primary team India Start of match date greater than or equal to 1 Jan 2017 Type of bowler (by style) pace bowler Involving the player B Kumar (INDIA) Qualifications wickets taken greater than or equal to 5 Ordered by bowling average (ascending) Page 1 of 1 Showing 1 - 5 of 5 First Previous Next Last Return to query menu Cleared query menu Overall figures Player Mat Inns Overs Mdns Runs Wkts BBI BBM Ave Econ SR 5 10 Mohammed Shami 3 6 88.3 20 283 16 5/28 6/74 17.68 3.19 33.1 1 0 JJ Bumrah 2 4 70.1 7 223 11 5/54 7/111 20.27 3.17 38.2 1 0 B Kumar 5 10 153.3 49 434 21 4/8 8/96 20.66 2.82 43.8 0 0 I Sharma 2 4 63.0 13 173 6 2/31 3/64 28.83 2.74 63.0 0 0 In tests, Bhuvi was mostly played in conditions that favored him. Despite that there are bowlers who did better (Shami who for e.g. was brought in by the other poster) .... Do the players you support a favor, don't support them (unless vs many Pak, BD, etc., posters where you may have a better chance with your points) Since you have decided to follow up on the other poster's arguments, you have to accept the stats and move on
  7. Don’t expect Sachin fanboys to keep their words and would keep changing their stance .... the numbers are from the same time period (but we have to keep on changing the goalpost) Below is your posts: “Bhuvi of the last 20 months is a much improved bowler. Bhuvi 2.0 is a much better bowler than his numbers suggest.  I'd be very interested in seeing what the 'par' economy rate was in those 16 games that he played.”
  8. Buddy, the stats that you want to accept involves games involving Bhuvi since 2018.

  10. Lyon is a smart batsman .... Aus should try to ultlize him more to get quick runs
  11. Like Shastri, Kohli is probably sitting back and allowing people to do their own stuff .... Bowlers come up with bowling plans, Dhoni can do field settings in LOIs, and so on

    Pravin Amre - Another lost talent in the 90s

    Should have got more chances .... was moved around the batting order and no one took the initiative to settle him down. Much like how Rahane is being supported now, others in the team were given preference
