  1. 5.3-0- 68 -1

    Is it this spell from this man that lost it for team India....
  2. 5.3-0- 68 -1

    So, it is 4-0-64-0 today and is similar to the one before. Let us wait for the result before calling him "Match ka Mujrim".
  3. Magnificient Mahendra!!!

    I am not a Dhoni fan like some bhakts here but I could not stop myself from opening this thread. 52 off 28 balls is simply superb performance when you were 23(19) at one stage. I think MSD has rediscoverd himself like SRT has done post WC 2007. This is simply simply superb acceleration from him. The one of the kind we have seen in his early days and the kind of player we all (i.e. Indian Cricket fans) loved Dhoni for (during his long hairy days). http://laughingcolours.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/main-qimg-f3a16f17e4766450b250ab1572a33397-c.jpg In short Sunnyji's words during commentary, "All those doubters of finishing abilities of MSD have got their answers today".
  4. I think Manish Pandey has given a big phainty for all his detractors including the OP!!!!!! Manish Pandey is true servant of Indian Cricket.
  5. How to watch Indian domestic cricket uk

    Is Willow cricket something different from https://www.willow.tv/ ? I got the 30-day subscription for 8.99 CAD and I can watch India matches like the one going to happen today. But I cannot watch all domestics but few that they put on. The QF3 and SF1 are going to be streamed live. So, I don't think Willow is only in USA but if you tell me there is more coverage in USA, I do not know about that.
  6. Sure, I agree that Rahul deserves his spot in ODI/T20Is but probably in the middle order ( n not in top 3). Rohit's inclusion over Rahane in the first test vs SA is simply shocking!!!!!
  7. Modi’s snub of Justin Trudeau

    That's not Chinese but Cantonese AFAIK. A lot of Hong Kongians have come and settled in Vancouver out of fear of communism in the mid-late 90's. A good part of downtown Vancouver is owned by these people. Until then Vancouver was essentially only a tourist destination. Canadian sympathies sometimes seem to extend too much in favor of minorities to very worrying levels but this is probably not the worst one.
  8. What would be the consequence of BCCI going away from ICC? Who will team India play with then? Only bilateral series with other cricket board teams... and no CT and WC hereafter.
  9. Common.... pls Don't tell me that Rohit and Dhawan are playing this format because of Kohli's friendship. And I have not seen Ishant anywhere near India team for at least 3 weeks now....
  10. How do you rate Virat after this SA series?

    I want to see what @Gollum wants to contribute to this thread. I will be very interested given his immense knowledge of sports (in general) and across various eras that a lot have not seen.
  11. I was dropped despite performance: Suresh Raina

    First thing to check is if this has been written by his nephew on twitter or he himself said that!!!
  12. This is an excellent excellent news for team India. Ishant Sharma would be very acclimatized and may learn few tricks of trade on those English pitches and can be potent in the India's long test tour of England. Hatsoff to everyone involved in this decision!!!
  13. Both are similar bowlers with respect to how they turn the ball. Kuldeep bowls Chinaman and Ashwin bows Offspin. But boy, I must say that Kuldeep is far more attacking and wicket-taking in nature as compared to Ashwin who is more of a containing bowler in ODIs. Despite the fact that Ashwin is far more experienced and successful in tests and Kuldeep seeming to leak runs, I will prefer the Kuldeep over Ashwin in an ODI starting XI.
  14. Sure, I am not denying he should not be given more opportunities or drafted in India A etc. He needs to be in the selectors radar but let him perform more consistently. Let him gain more experience and his stats will automatically stabilize at a point where we can assess how good he is. Just feel that he is not that good to be in seniors team yet as some people are clamouring here..
  15. His ListA career average is 35.33 and SR is nearly 83. It is just not bad and is not in the "good" category yet to be inducted into the seniors category. Can be tried in A teams from now and if he does well then taken into the main team... which is likely to be after WC 19 now.
  16. Kuldeep Yadav vs Ashwin Ravichandran in ODIs

    http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/player/559235.html?class=2;template=results;type=bowling Fair to say, Kuldeep has won this comparison as he won India first series in South Africa ( with the help of Chahal, Bumrah etc.). Ashwin has been an embarrassment whenever we toured abroad whereas Kuldeep has shown his potential in his first challenging overseas assignment. My original point regarding their wicket taking ability still seems to be the difference.
  17. Well on the night of Maha Siva Rathri, Shivji has ensured that India does the impossible. Hats off to team India! :-)
  18. Rangaiah betters Wasim Akram

    As we were all engrossed with the Pink day match in Johannesburg, Rangana Herath crosses Wasim Akram as the most successful left-arm bowler in test history. Amazing that a tiny island nation can produce two bowlers who are the highest wicket takers in test cricket bowling right arm and left arm. Some stories: http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/22390206/herath-battling-father-cut-deal-him http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/22388193/rangana-herath-akila-dananjaya-rewrite-record-books
  19. Rangaiah betters Wasim Akram

    One thing is for sure is that Herath did not do well vs India. His performance against India is minnoyish and hence Sanjay Manju would have the guts to speak like that. The reason is probably because of the fact that Indian batsmen are good players of spin and most spinners don't have a great record against India. On the other hand, his record against Pakistan (which is also a subcontinent team with good spin playing ability) is fantabulous. He has 106 wickets in just 21 matches at 28 runs a wicket that includes 8 5-wicket hauls and 2 10-wicket matches. http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/player/49178.html?class=1;filter=advanced;opposition=7;orderby=default;template=results;type=bowling
  20. Guess if this is a batsman or a bowler?

    Rohit Sharma is going nowhere in 2020s (I eman until Dhawan or even Kohli is around) in ODIs/T20s.
  21. North Indians making Goa another Haryana, says minister

    Can I know which parts of Canada, you were made uncomfortable (just out of curiosity). The facts you mentioned about Delhi and Chennai, even I heard that. Delhites seem aggressive to outsiders... It is not about Southies alone. My friend from UP also complains about Delhites. The complaints of non-tamils or northies about Chennai is very well known.
  22. 5.3-0- 68 -1

    Some people are over reacting here. Nobody is saying Chahal needs to be dropped or this performance is the end of his career. Let us not sweep this performance under the carpet... He needs to take his lessons from this performance. H needs to learn the importance of keeping his cool under pressure and when the opposition is attacking him and not overstep... Sure, let us hope he will keep providing the value that he has been giving to team India....
  23. Team India in trouble!!! It is only 9 runs that India has got to defend.... Have to have a miracle to win this match now....
  24. 290 is a very good score. Obviously we can take it very happily. Not sure if India can reach there though!
  25. Navdeep Saini bowling with genuine pace now

    Not a should. There are many senior players ahead of him in the pecking order. I won't play him even ahead of Ishant Sharma.
