  1. One of the greatest Prime Ministers ever, all the way up there with LBS and PVNR. Salute to you, sir! Many lives in India are better today thanks to your leadership.

    Karunandhi health status...

    His greatest contributions to Indian politics: 1. Tried to divide the country on linguistic lines 2. Defined the gold standard of corruption by facilitating record breaking scams.

    It could happen to us

    Our batting is pretty hopeless, so could happen.

    Teenagers are no longer making debut for India

    He keeps recycling old players even when new players are doing well. He is afraid that a new player will rise similar to him and grab all the limelight. There is no such risk with playing old known entities like Karthik, Dhoni, Raina, etc. Who says youngsters are not doing well in Ranjis or A tours or IPL? Pant, Shaw, Iyer have been doing well, but either don't get picked or don't get a long run in the team. The one I am particularly referring to is Pant. Even when he has been picked in the squad many times, he hardly gets matches to play. Classic example was in WI. He kept Pant on bench throughout the ODI series even after Dhoni slow coach innings of 54 at SR less than 50. He then played Pant in the sole T20I when clearly he was rusty having been on the bench for so long.

    You hit the nail on the head there. He will never pick anyone who he views as a threat to his position. He knows that all the oldies are no threat to him and he will keep recycling them. Classic example is the way he has treated Pant. He tries to put youngsters in positions where they are bound to fail instead of giving them a decent chance to prove their mettle.

    Play Pant and Karthik

    Make one of them as keeper and the other as a slip fielder. Our slip catching has been extraordinarily horrendous. Hopefully, them being keepers, they will be more alert to chances that come up. As it is, on the batting front, Dhawan (if it isn't a road-like flat track) and Pujara are going to be walking wickets.

    Pujara's county performance thread

    Pujara is a total waste overseas and needs to be dropped immediately. No point in giving him any more chances. Only going to cost the Indian team. We should only play him in Tests in India.

    Congrats CSK!!

    Hyderabad Sunrisers just can't beat the Chuskis. 8-2 now. Totally one-sided record.

    Most Worthless Player of IPL 2018

    It's decided then: Glenn Maxwell is the most worthless player of IPL 2018.

    Most Worthless Player of IPL 2018

    Bringing the poll to an end earlier since many have already voted. Two more days and we declare the winner.

    Flop season for uncapped batsmen

    I wouldn't call Tripathi or Krunal as flops. Also, Shaw was not just decent, but was pretty good. Not fair to judge uncapped players who hardly got a chance to impress. The "just about capped" players impressed considerably in the form of Pant and Iyer. So in general, the next tier of players actually did pretty well.

    Most Worthless Player of IPL 2018

    The big (flop) show leading the way comfortably here. He's got more votes than the total number of boundaries he hit all season. Unadkat a distant second.
  13. Pant in my opinion should be in the XI by default. But no Dhoni and only Dhoni will continue to remain keeper till he so desires.

    Most Worthless Player of IPL 2018

    Yuvraj Singh didn't get paid a lot compared to IPL standards. He was sold for less than what even Barinder Sran got paid. And Sran did nothing also.
  15. Pant? Dhoni? Karthik? Rahul? Ishan Kishan? Samson? Anyone else....? Very likely multiple of these could play in the team, one as keeper and the rest as batsmen.
