  1. Scope for left arm slow bowlers is limited unless you are an all rounder or playing in helpful conditions or a Bedi KP adds more value with his power hitting abilities. In fielding both of them are similar. In bowling, Jadeja could be more clever due to experience Considering our fragile middle order, and with Hardik out, Krunal had a stronger case
  2. His fans and followers could be asking for updates .... let’s not make mountains out of molehills Reminds me of the scene from one of Zoolander films, iirc, where Justin Beaber does not forget to put the “update” before dying .... that’s where it is going ..., you see all kinds of updates from just about anyone who has a decent number of followers
  3. How many of you think that is a possibility?
  4. BD can still do well! Don’t lose hope if by cheating, are you referring to the scheduling? Note it is not done by Ind. And apart from Pak, other teams have had to play back-to-back games

    Top 5 Hitchcock

    I am planning to rewatch some of the Hitchcock films. And therefore, it is a good time to discuss some of his top films. The films that I usually tend to like are -> Vertigo, To Catch a Thief, North by Northwest, The Lady Vanishes, North by Northwest, Strangers on a Train, Notorious, 39 Steps, Rebecca, Suspicion, etc. .... Films such as Torn Curtain, I confess, are a good watch too What are your top 5?

    Tired of posting 11

    At one point, posting 11 used to be exciting. But now w/ a) recycled squad selected, b) players getting injured, and c) players such as KL not making it to the 11 despite being in the squad, posting 11s has become a pointless exercise To BCCI and TM, please select exciting squads and optimized 11, so cricket becomes “more” interesting once again Anyways, this is probably the last gen which is following cricket so passionately. Don’t make it easy for us to follow cricket less and less

    Kedhar Jadhav :player without X factor

    Novelty will wear off as even regular spinners have found it difficult to be consistent .... I would not get my hopes to high But the conditions in UAE will suit him
  9. .... the return of the Dads Army
  10. Bhajji could be getting his hopes high as well for playing in the WC ....
  11. Asia Cup has been won by Ind, Pak and SL. This time I would not mind having a brand new champion Though both AFG and BD would be playing back-to-back games tomm vs Pak and Ind respectively
  12. Goal would be to get into final, where anything can happen esp if they bat first and put up a good total .... With so many games being played, pitches could get difficult to bat too
  13. Easy bet that Urmi would pronounce Pandya as “gay”
  14. Areas of concern: 1. AFG: Handling pressure when chasing targets 2. Ind: Middle order. 50/3 kind of situation w/ top order gone, it could mean trouble, esp w/ Pandya out of the tourney 3. BD: Key players will need to step up. As if they fail, BD performs like an associate team 4. Pak: Lack 1-2 star dependable batsmen so batting as a group needs to improve Anyways, new stage, new game!
  15. This is a good opportunity for him to think about his game too! .... GWS
  16. My ranking of performances in the grp games: 1. AFG - punched above their weight 2. Ind - mixed bag, salvaged by the bowling performance vs Pak 3. BD - mixed bag, salvaged by Nagin’s superb 100 vs SL 4. Pak - “P” for poor
  17. Every game is imp for a new team like AFG

    Probable world cup squad !!!

    Sounds like “saliva”
  19. AFG appears to be peaking
  20. If these things continue, I would not be surprised to see a thread like “which was worse: 2007 or 2019” after the World Cup
  21. Pandya bros can help Ind win the WC!
  22. One of these two could win the Asia Cup! .... may be it is time for a brand new champion

    Bhuvi in ODIs

    Bhuvi and Rahane are in the same boat .... I.e. People are not fooled by their occasional good performances .... they have to deliver consistently I would want to start with Khaleel and Bumrah, however considering Bumrah’s work load, may be just play him in imp games in the Asia Cup

    Bhuvi in ODIs

    Whenever I see Bhuvi, a specialist bowler for Ind, in ODIs, esp the non-swinging conditions, I get .... and feel as if it is time for the other team w/o bowlers such as Bumrah, we are not the same bowling unit. Anyone else feel the same way?
