  1. Hey look - The best bowling side won the tournament

    +1 It is obvious that the bangalore pitch and ground is so conducive to batting that high-scoring is expected. Had it been some other larger ground, it could have been larger margin!!!
  2. Both Dhoni and Kohli were very very determined to win the match for their side and raise their teams from the dire situation they are in. The match effectively signify victory of Kohli's determination over Dhoni's indicating the shift of balance of winning ability from Dhoni to Kohli. It is probably time that Dhoni retires from at least T20 cricket and let Kohli take over. Discuss!!!
  3. Yes. But they have played only 8 matches and have six matches left. They win 5 out of the 6 and they are qualified for the playoffs.
  4. Mumbai Indians - IPL 2016, Support Thread

  5. Congrats Mitchell Starc and Alyssa Healy

    Congratulations!!!!
  6. Ravi Shastri forces MS to drop Dhawan For Rahane

    Rohit has just started to free his arms. He scored 20 runs in the last ten balls he faced including the ball of his dismissal. He could have very likely scored 65+ if he played another 10 balls without being dismissed. Whereas, if Rahane stayed for some more time, he would have scored another 12-15 runs in the next ten balls he faced bringing something like 45 ball 50 and that is very very low on this pitch. No poster here is claiming Rahane is a villain of the match but only saying that his selection for this match on a pitch like that of Whankede is a serious mistake, that too replacing Dhawan who could have come good here. It is completely different thing had Rahane being brought because the captain and the management thought they are looking at another Nagpur kind of pitch where grit and accumulation of hard earned runs is required to score a good total.
  7. Where are our IPL stars?

    True..> But his 'effectively" last ODI is somewhere in 2008 or so. I know he had some chances in Zim tour and 1 or two in SL series but that's about it. He did not get a continuous run like he did in his first stint. Uthappa seemed to have improved his technique and temperament a lot in the last few years and matured completely. Especially from 2014 or so, both his domestic record as well as the IPL performances have been very very good. I think he deserves at least one last run in ODI cricket. His previous bad record is perhaps working against him in the minds of the selectors!!!
  8. Where are our IPL stars?

    Robin Uthappa is not a hack!!!!!!! by any means....
  9. The problem you were talking did not happen. A score of 55 for 0 in 6 overs is a very good start. If only Rahane was also able to hit sixers like Rohit Sharma, there would have been more runs on board.
  10. 27th March

    I remember the 27th March 1994 which is a palm Sunday, when the young Tendulkar has been promoted as an opener for the first time and played an unbelievable innings (his best ODI innings at that time). http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/64463.html This was the first match that India finished a match with more than 6 Runs per over. This match probably changed the Indian limited overs cricket forever. I cannot believe that exactly 22 years later, on the Easter Sunday an even more incredible innings was played by the successor while chasing setting up a very memorable win. Unbelievable knock, Kohli!!! Take a bow! What started then is being continued by the next generation legend!
  11. Remember 23rd March, 2003: The finals of WC 2003, India vs Australia and 23rd March, 2007: The first match for India in WC 2007, India vs Bangladesh Can we really believe this theory looking at what is happening today!
