  1. Kedhar Jadhav :player without X factor

    Shreyas Iyer is a high SR batter who can bowl 3 or 4 overs too How about trying him in the last 2 ODIs in place of Jadhav ?
  2. Kedhar Jadhav :player without X factor

    Jadhav has started to irritate me a bit A 32 year old is supposed to have maturity ..... but he is throwing his wicket away a bit too often He is not considering the match situation at all while going for risky shots
  3. Yes .... but it is equally important not to hit if the ball is not there Hit only if the ball is there to be hit ... which will be quite frequently for a hitter like Pant
  4. Our ODI bowling strength has started to pick up after the 2 wrist spinners have joined Bumrah, Bhuvi, Shami and Pandya.
  5. Hardik Pandya, the complete cricketer.

    Pandya has a rather prominent foot-work against both pacers and spinner both on the front-foot and back-foot He uses the back-and-across trigger movement often enough against pacers Tries to go to the line of the ball to play He can be a decent batsmen anywhere in the world provided he wants to construct his innings and go for big runs.
  6. Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    Fastest balls by Indians in the 3rd ODI vs Australia Bumrah 144 k Bhuvi 142 k Pandya 139 k
  7. Unrelenting bowling line-up offers India fresh edge

    Shami has had injury breaks and operations like most fast bowlers do .... but has played 13 tests in the last 14 months .... he is playing most test matches. In test matches, Umesh and Shami ( even Ishant ) have been as quick as any other quick pacers , except Starc. Their specialist is sustaining high pace in tests. In LOIs, there has been 3 or 4 quicker pacers. Ah ... that is an exaggeration and you know it.
  8. Why do these coaches try to create a rift between the captain and their ward for half-a-day of media attention !!
  9. Reopening the debate on best chasers in ODIs

    The super talented player performing head and shoulders above the other good players is a feature of the " amateur era ". The more professional a sport or a format becomes, the quality of the good and the average player becomes much higher through analysis, research and professional training. While the natural flair of the super talented guy is partially curtailed by planning by the coaches. It was the case with Bradman in tests and Richards in ODIs. Although Richards played in an era of sufficiently professional test setup, ODIs were at a nascent stage and Richards, with his natural ODI flair, shone the brightest by a huge margin. If Tendulkar and Ponting had played test matches in the 1930s .... Tendulkar would perhaps have averaged 80+ in tests and Ponting not more than 60. The natural flair of Tendulkar would have made him head and shoulders above the rest.
  10. Let's all laugh at AUS's ODI performance outside AUS

    Though not exactly related to this topic, one issue I want to discuss about the bolded line is .... India now has a much more balanced bowling attack in all formats compared to any time in our history .... our ODI batting may have some weaknesses but it is the strong bowling attacks which are the strongest teams. p.s - I know the above statement was made in 2015 and was relevant then .... just discussing the impact of strong bowling attacks
  11. Let's all laugh at AUS's ODI performance outside AUS

    They will play 4 specialist bowlers and Stoinis Not 5 specialist bowlers It will be Starc Hazlewood Cummins / Faulkner Zampa / Agar Stoinis
  12. Picking players from smaller towns and villages too, starting around 2004, has made this possible. Earlier, it was selecting players mainly from Bombay,Delhi,Madras, Bangalore, Hyderabad, the Punjab and sometimes Calcutta and Haryana.
  13. Duleep Trophy 2017-18

    Too many pacers whom I find to be " interesting bowlers " won't be playing due the ongoing A-team game, elimination of India Green., injury, non-debut in FC and non-selection No Siraj, Aniket C, Nathu, Avesh, Khejroliya, Aaron, Rajpoot, Nagarkoti, Sangwan Thampi will be the only " interesting " new pacer on view. Pacers we may see in the final Thampi Ishant Milind Unadkat Kaul Pankaj
  14. Reserve / Backup players available for Team India

    Siraj, Karn and Nadeem have done well among bowlers in the 4-day A-Team match today
  15. Reserve / Backup players available for Team India

    Good to see frequent A-team series taking place. to the BCCI for this. Best way to create ' ready ' backups
