  1. Changes before the Final

    Ashwin is useless and especially against subcontinent teams on a patta. Shami or even Umesh has to replace him so we have a wkt taking option in the middle overs.
  2. Shami is that you
  3. There's no such law in Pakistan else half the country will be suing the other half in courts
  4. Dravid justification on our low runrate in 1st 10 overs

    And that's how it should be. You don't change tactics and team combination just before the final. Plus we are playing Pakistan who aren't good at chasing big totals so it makes no sense at all to suddenly change tactics. It's not as if we are playing England or Aus in the final that we need to put up 330+.
  5. Dravid justification on our low runrate in 1st 10 overs

    Yup 70/0 after 15 overs means we should be able to score 300 and i would take it against Pak in a final
  6. Dravid justification on our low runrate in 1st 10 overs

    Yes but the key still is not to lose early wkts to Amir and company coz if India doesn't and get a decent start I don't expect India to collapse the way Eng or SA did. The biggest concern for us would b losing early wkts as that would expose our middle order. If we have a solid partnership likes of Imad Wasim and Hafeez are unlikely to trouble use the same way they did Eng & SA. I repeat, if we get a solid start we will put up a good total coz the part timers which Pak have in the middle innings (Imad & Hafeez) won't be half as effective against India.
  7. This is brilliant!!!

    They are pretty warm and friendly folks
  8. Hafeez and Junaid may revert to chucking

    No point banging your head on the wall... it's akin to "bhains ke aage been bajana" If they don't understand the difference between chucking, i.e. elbows bent, and a side arm slingy action a la Bumrah & Malinga where the elbow remains straight but the arm is side on instead of straight, you know you are talking to idiots.
  9. This nous and cricketing street smarts is the reason I wanted Dhoni in the team along with Pant. Hopefully Kohli learns and improves by 2019 WC It's a knack to bring the right bowler at the right time and Dhoni has mastered it. One of the best captains in shorter formats in world cricket and a true legend
  10. Dravid justification on our low runrate in 1st 10 overs

    I guess it depends on the team you are playing. I would recommend such an approach for the final against Pakistan coz their biggest threat is taking wkts up front. Plus you don't need a huge total against Pakistan and 300-320 should be enough which the current approach can get you. But moving forward, and against teams like Australia and England you need to maximize PP overs. That's why somebody like Pant needs to be tried at the top so that Dhawan can take his time, which he doesn't need a lot of TBH, to get set and play a big knock while Pant kick starts the inning with a quickfire 30-40 the way Sehwag used to do so scores like 330-360 are reachable.
  11. Yuvraj Singh The KING 300th ODI today | Discussion thread

    He was one of the most destructive players in his prime and watching him take on bowlers when he was on song was an experience in itself. Hope he has one more big knock in him for the final
  12. Shami over Pandya/Ash?

    Shami played the whole Wc 2015 with a bum knee which needed surgery later on and put him out of cricket for more than 6 months. If he was effective then, he's more than fit now. he was clocking high 140s in IPL and was among the wkts in warm ups. No reason for him not to be played as he can handle pressure better than Umesh. Plus he can throw his bat around to score some quick runs.
  13. This is brilliant!!!

    Afghans are defacto Indian citizens Their home ground is Noida's cricket stadium and I wish they become a force in cricketing world soon
  14. Shami over Pandya/Ash?

    He has to. On such pattas pace of Shami will be much more useful than Ashwin who Pak hacks will look to murder. We already have Jaddu and some part-time spin of Jadhav which should suffice. Pakistan struggle more against pace than spin and Kohli should keep this in mind else we won't have too many wkt taking options in the middle overs.
  15. Shami over Pandya/Ash?

    How do we know Shami's not fit? Who has said so? Last we saw of Shami he was bowling pretty well in warmup matches. And as for Pandya being replaced by Umesh, why? Why would you weaken your batting against the best bowling attack you have come across? Ashwin replaced by Shami/Umesh makes sense but why on earth drop Pandya when he has performed well against Pakistan everytime he has played against them?
