  1. What am I looking at here ? The page is not functioning just like Rohit in overseas tests.

    Let Pujara play the way he can

    We need to stop blaming other people for the performances of experienced players. This talk of intent did not deter Pujara from scoring heavily in Asia. His failure in county cricket ( averaging 14 from 8 FC games ) had nothing to do with the Indian team management requiring intent from him.
  3. Why ???? Rohit averages 23.9 in tests outside Asia If Rahul and Vijay fail out of Asia ... I would look for new batsmen and not Rohit.

    Speed and performance of pacers and spinners in important matches

    There has been consistent and significant swing from the 11 th over onwards ... but the pitch has been slowish and seam movement has been on and off. Shows that swing without seam movement is still mananageable for top batsmen.

    RAFbhai ... good to see you posting again. Please don't be deterred by trolls. They want good posters to stop posting.

    Gavaskar was saying in the lunch break that Woakes has got wickets because he has pitched the ball up ... while the others did not to do so often enough. Woakes got 2 wickets with good length balls and 1 with a proper short ball. These experts either refer to good length balls as pitches up balls too ... or are so biased in their beliefs that they cannot see what is happening. Either way ... shows that their words are hardly sacrosant.

    Some balls have started to swing in big now ... and that is putting doubts in the minds of the batters even regarding the other deliveries. Some consistent and significant outswing from Woakes too.

    The ball starting to swing more ... and we lose our first wicket.

    The swing has not been alarming . The seam movement has not been alarming too. Trundler need alarming movement. If the movement increases later ... they may bowl better. Effect of left-right combination perhaps. Makes it more difficult for seamers to bowl in good areas.

    That is their usual average speeds. Only Stokes is quicker and Broad on rare occasions.

    The quickest ball by the English has been 137.x kph till the 15th over. These English seamers look very ordinary without consistent movement on offer.
  12. Left hander and right hander combination helping us too. It is good that we have 2 left handers in the top 6.
  13. Indian batsmen are looking to play late today. Good change in their technique.

    They have done so from mid-2016.
  15. If we can put the pressure back on England ... this English team will crumble. We need to play fearless cricket. Introduction of 2 young cricketers should help us too.
  16. I would like to see how the English medium pacers perform if exceptional movement is not on offer.
  17. If we can bat decently, we have a good chance of winning this test. Batting first is likely to be more helpful here.

    If we can bat decently, we will win this test match. We have 2 good fast bowlers in this match ... and the pitch expected to aid spin bowling somewhat from day 3, for which we have Ashwin.

    Bumrah back in the team as expected ! Hope he is in form ... which is not always easy after an injury induced break. But, he can get back in the groove by the 2nd innings. In-form Bumrah and Shami bowling in tandem, in helpful conditions, can be a sight to behold for fast bowling fans.
  20. As per pitch report ... pitch has both green and brown grass.
  21. Let's talk about this test series in England ... and same English medium pacers bowling with the same Dukes ball with and without the sun shining. So, why have we seen the ball swing more when it is cloudy ... the same Anderson got less swing in the first test whenever there were periods of bright sunshine.

    The outswing of Rajpoot could have been so effective in the 2nd test, with 5 of the top 7 English batters being right handers.
