  1. RISHABH PANT Discussion thread - Nextgen "Hitter"

    If he is sent as a surprise opener or pinch-hitter, we will see what he is capable of. (He should not come lower-order if he is to play T20Is and probably won't if we bat second when WI would have accumulated a lot of runs.) I wish he wins India a game like he did for DD vs GL in that 210 run chase. That will seal his spot (even if it is one innings).
  2. RISHABH PANT Discussion thread - Nextgen "Hitter"

    May be Pant will get a chance in the only T20I. OP, please edit the title of the thread!
  3. I believe it is because Rohit is a very "Pakistani" kind of player. Lots of potential and predictably unpredictable. Pakistanis might like him as they kind of identify with him!!!
  4. Is Jadeja honestly the best ODI spinner we have?

    Nothing else is needed to judge the ODI bowler Jadeja!!!!! Bowling average of 64 is highly unacceptable even for part-timers (who are full time batsman).
  5. India vs West Indies 2017, 4 th ODI,

    Not entirely their fault but they were too slow for winning the game for India. They should have scored at a better rate after settling in and playing lot of deliveries. If Rahane had scored 60 off 70 odd deliveries, I would not have blamed him. Same with Dhoni if he scored 20 more runs after facing so many balls.
  6. India vs West Indies 2017, 4 th ODI,

    Offcourse we did..>> this is few hours old news now.... Did you wake up just now...
  7. India vs West Indies 2017, 4 th ODI,

    My bad!!!
  8. India vs West Indies 2017, 4 th ODI,

    Looks like DHONI will win it for India in the last over.. like he did against Sri Lanka in 2013 >>> interesting match where we will again see "Magnificent Mahendra" as Michael Holding claimed on that evening....
  9. Yuvi has proved that he still has it in him to last for few more years. Time to realize that "Old is always Gold" no matter what and let us put to rest the criticism of UV and MSD please.
  10. INDW vs PAKW - 2nd July 2017 - Our women need support

    Women's team is also as "actual" as men's team (if you know what I mean!). Males are in no way superior gender or anything.
  11. No it turned out to be Karthik and Shami!!!
  12. Ajinkya is probably proving himself valuable for playing innings such as the ones today.
  13. Has Yuvi given a phainty for all his detractors

    Big big Test for UV's current ability today after coming in a tricky situation. If he fails this time, then the knives may be out by many "on the fence" detractors too.
  14. Bumrah needs to be tried in Test matches

    Well, I compared Malinga to Vaas and not Vaas to Ishant. Ishant is like Vaas in the sense that he is a hit-the-deck kind of bowler and also Ishant gets a lot of bounce to trouble the batsman. Surely, he is not as intelligent as Vaas or lot of other bowlers who did well in internationals, he is surely one of the best we have had for many years since he troubled Ponting in that famous tour of 2008.
  15. AB expected to retire from Tests.

    I think he suddenly improved from somewhere in late 2000s to be the beast and Mr. 360 we know him as. In 2008, he is still not the best when he played with Bangladesh. His stats from late 2008 are very staggering (almost an average of 59 with 15 hundrends and 25 fifties in 97 innings). http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/player/44936.html?class=1;spanmin1=17+Dec+2008;spanval1=span;template=results;type=batting
  16. Bumrah needs to be tried in Test matches

    Shami is always injured. I will rely on Ishant Sharma than a completely different bowler like Bumrah. Remember, Malinga was not as good a test bowler too as compared to say Chaminda Vaas (who is more like Ishant).
  17. Rahane can be our floater for 2019WC in middle order- Kohli

    Remember Rahane's innings vs SA in World Cup 2015. I would say it was as good as Jadeja's of 1996.
  18. For both the statements, we can say: "Der Aaye Durust Aaye"
  19. To be fair to him, Rahane did his job pretty well today. He was not wasting balls and played according to the requirement. Problem is, he does not do this very often. These are few and far between innings of his. Otherwise, given his test credentials, why would he not do well in ODIs?....
  20. India vs West Indies 2nd ODI,

    Congratulations to Ajinkya Rahane!!!!!!!!!!!! Job well done... You have cemented your place for the next 10 ODI series as a backup opener!!!!!!!
  21. Nothing great. Rahane is going to cement his position as backup opener for team INDIA.
  22. He is actually doing well now.... He has started slowly and now got the momentum going up. He will score a good 50 today....
  23. India will play a limited-overs series against the West Indies. © AFP Virat Kohli's side reached Port of Spain from London for the ODI and T20I series against the West Indies. The Indian cricket team has reached Port of Spain (Trinidad) for a limited-overs series against the West Indies. The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) posted a photo of Kohli and opposition captain Jason Holder at the team hotel on social media where both are seen smiling. The first ODI is scheduled for June 23 (Friday), but more than cricket, the focus will be on the Indian team sans former head coach Anil Kumble. Kumble stepped down on Tuesday night and tweeted his resignation letter making clear that the differences between him and Kohli were a real thing. Kohli is yet to speak about his side of the story regarding the feud. It came at a time when the team was en route the West Indies. Kumble had earlier said an ICC meeting was the reason for him not accompanying the team for the series. India, who lost to Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday, start favourites for the series comprising five ODIs and a T20 International. Batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar have travelled with the team. The West Indies, currently ninth in the ODI rankings, failed to qualify for the Champions Trophy where the top eight teams battled it out for top honours. India had toured the West Indies last year for a four-match Test series which the visitors won 2-0. It was Kumble's first assignment after taking charge as head coach.
  24. Top point. I really really wished they made that adjustment. Dhawan could have easily played out a maiden may be even hit a four on the offside if Amir goes amiss. But the thing is, I never understand why they cannot make such subtle and important changes.
  25. Are you really 100% sure, Jaddu did this... If so, and
