  1. Now that the league phase is almost over, let's vote for the most worthless player of this IPL. A worthless player is one who is being paid a lot of money, but contributing very little. See poll for all the contenders... and VOTE VOTE VOTE!!
  2. 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.

    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.
  6. 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.

    Siraj - not impressed

    First impressions. Young lad. Not international quality yet. Too raw. Can't bowl to a line and length. Probably needs to go back to domestics and fine tune.
  10. Lol. Why?? First you were saying all speed gun ratings are consistent. Now you changed and saying Indian speed gun ratings are lower. What happened. They are not all accurate anymore?
  11. Use some Vaseline before putting your c*ck in @Rightarmfast s a$$ next time. He gets super sensitive when you go straight in.
  12. Already posted. If you can't read English, go find someone to teach you that.
  13. @rkt.india @Rightarmfast I think javelin throw is a better sport for you guys to follow. Can measure speeds all day
  14. Hope he doesn't become another Atul Sharma.
  15. If you watched those IPL games, he had quite a few balls at 140.
  16. Error margin exists for all. See what they have bowled everywhere and there is difference in speed across grounds. I understand you are only interested in seeing phashhhhhhtttt bowlers and have no interest in watching real cricket.
  17. You go and do some reading kid and educate yourself. Get a college degree too and a real job and stop flipping burgers :)
  18. Anyway, you can't reason with "Pakistan" like mentality.
  19. Praveen is a bowler who clocks 115-125 usually. In T20s I can understand a 5-6 kph bump. But Praveen clocking 140 is an anomaly and can only be explained by inaccuracies in recording speed gun results.
  20. Ohh poor Rightarmfast. Yearning to see only Right arm fast mentioned against bowler with Indian team. Not cared about result of the match. Not cared about any actual "cricket". You guys are very much like the Pakistanis that only boast about "phassht" bowlers. By the way, speed guns vary from broadcaster to broadcaster and can very much show different values even from ground to ground. Do a little more reading on how they are calculated and you will see how much error margin there is in speed gun ratings. Problem with you is you don't even know or feign to not know how the machine calculates the speed and how much error margin exists.
  21. Even Praveen Kumar was clocked at 140k in IPL. He is not in any way capable to clocking those speeds. So we know that there is a variance.
  22. Lol at all the speed gun analysts and obsession with speed gun readings. I don't think you guys watch cricket to see a contest between bat and ball. Only obsession is to see speed gun digits.
  23. LOL at so much sensitivity about speed gun ratings. Nobody even noticed that I mentioned that these are actually very good prospects and should be fast-tracked. Tells you many people here only care about what the speed gun rating says than actual bowlers who are capable of taking wickets.
  24. I haven't watched them bowl, but they could well be bowling much slower. These are Under-19s. Aussie bowlers generally pick up pace when they get to 23-25. In India, the reverse culture exists. Bowlers get slower as they play Ranjis.
  25. Great. Then you have found your next Starc. Then you must be saying that he is the fastest bowler in the World today. Correct? Get him in the Indian team right away. I don't think he is Starc level fast yet. He is a good potential though, so no reason to get so sensitive about "No he is the fastest bowler in the World today".
