    Performance of Indians in England by Grounds

    Appears as if fans feel Dhawan will continue to do well in ICC events .... usually there are not too many left handers in the 11 but they tend to do well in ICC events .... let’s hope the trend continues for Dhawan (and Pant if we open with him)

  4. I have been doing stats on sports for years as a hobby .... Anyways, if you have something interesting to post on cricket let me know (rather than making everything about Rohit)
  5. Please don’t make it about Rohit unnecessarily in every thread
  6. Srikkant in early 90s (last leg of his career)
  7. How spinners helped us in 1985 B&H. If we can get results like this:
  8. In the WCs, Power Plays were introduced in 1992 and so were white ball and colored clothing iirc .... B&H had colored clothing and white ball (but no PPs or was it there?)
  9. Which is why you have to consider the era .... As for Shastri, he may have opened for the first time in B&H and then in Aus, where our batting was not clicking as expected. Nothing much to discuss. He is there on the stats thats about it
  10. Not really (and there is a thread on it but can make a point here and there)! .... I support Rohit .... but not his tuktuk .... and do not mind seeing someone like Pant open if the opportunity exists
  11.

  12. It is understood that Srikkant's stats are good as per the era he played in (mentioned Gavaskar's era to highlight the point) Shastri's SR is bad but some folks may say that he avgs higher than Rohit in such events. 35 20-30 years ago is better than 32 today
  13. Like Bhutto had said (copied from China?) - "we will eat grass but will not surrender" (or something to that order)
  14. As many of you know, I wanted Ind vs WI series to be the farewell one for Dhoni. IF the 2019 WC is going to be the last tournament for Dhoni, might as well resurrect the old Dhoni fan in me and support him But please don't take the game to the last over @velu

    Resurrecting the Dhoni fan

    At the end of the day, we would try to support everyone who plays for Ind in an event like the WC

    RPO of teams over the years

    I wanted to see how RPO has changed over the last 2 decades, and shared it here as well This decade, the trend has favored home sides. However, Eng will have to be careful about the pressure of playing at home (and expectations), which can impact in scenarios where Eng may need to win to get in to KOs and KO games
  18. Buddy, if I could, I would ban international cricket in India so folks can be more productive and spend time on things that matter

In 69% of the games, he scores less than 50. Which means that in those games his SR would be 80 or less 2. In 20% of the games, his SR is 100 or more. This is 1/5 games 3. In 11% of the games, his SR is phenomenal .... But it is 1 in 9 games Applying this to the WC Group Games 1. Could go with a SR of 80 or less in 6 of the 9 games (And this 6 games could be vs major teams) 2. Could hit 2 50s where his SR could be 100+ (Could be vs. SL and Pak) 3. Could hit 1 100 at a phenomenal SR (Could be vs BD) Question 1. In 2019 WC, where par scores are expected to be 300+, Can Ind afford to waste PPs overs in possibly 6 of the 9 group games? Discuss

Might as well try opening with someone like Pant, who is expected to be in the squad, in lieu of Shaw / Agarwal. Rohit can be played in the MO (and do well if he is an improved player since 2013) Doing well in bilaterals, where you can eventually cover up vs. the same opposition over a bunch of games, is good but Rohit needs to pull up his socks in key events

    The swashbuckling openers

    He avgs 37 with a SR 0f 105 as opener. And rated despite Ind having high avg openers such as Tendulkar and Ganguly .... Less said about Rohit the better. There are a couple of threads on him already
  25. I guess, we have to change how folks in Ind are getting educated for a more better future .... rather than just focusing on meaningless paper degrees, emphasis should be on imparting a solid foundational well rounded education Education involves learning about not making our streets and water rescorces garbage, not burdening the planet with extremely high population (4x US population in 1/3 US area for e.g. why would any “educated” society put itself in such a position), having areas devoted to animals, who would have rights, and forests, good medical facilities for all (including animals), and so on If the basics are strong (and ppl intelligent enough as a group), we can be united on many issues as well as open to discussion on future of Ind (can we have a system where states, if they want, get more autonomy for e.g and share only a selected items with the rest of Ind (military, certain resources, foreign policy, etc for e.g.) PS the BJP vs Cong, Hindu vs Muslim, Economic development promises with unidimensional focus on just the $ part (when you do not necessarily need just $ to live a quality life. This is also where right edu is necessary), etc are not the topics we should still be fighting for in 2019
