  1. Rohit showed he can win games chasing

    You are riling up lot of nerves with that comment of yours...as it is an obvious reference to you know who??
  2. Kuldeep, Pant selected for WI tour

    Guess he did not completely recover after surgery and needs rest. He is a proven performer vs WI and someone like Pant can be tested. But why the heck on the world they still want to stick with Rahane...........
  3. Kuldeep, Pant selected for WI tour

    Rohit and Bumrah are given rest I suppose. Pant in Rahane still in.
  4. Pakistan winning this CT.

    Good one. You seem to be applying lahori logic very nicely.... Last time I checked 24th September 2007 when India played against Pakistan in ICC WorldT20 finals, it was Ramadan again!!!!!! Almost a similar comment was made 10 years ago on the eve of the finals by Shoaib Malik, "Imran khan won it in Ramadan in 1992. I will win it in 2007". The memorable scorecard: Reposted from the match thread.

  6. Let us wait until tomorrow's match and make these comments. It is too early to say it is India vs Pakistan in finals.
  7. Not sure of that really. Ishant did contribute in that final's victory of India.
  8. I think UV probably wants to end in high by playing WC 2019. That will not be bad if he announces it then.
  9. A fan on Cricinfo comments, "Last Champions Trophy was England's best shot at a 50 over international trophy but they fell victim to an all time great in Ishant Sharma". I understand that Ishant's role is very important. But it is elevating Ishant to another level. This also brings in another question if Ishant still deserved to play ODI cricket.
  10. Time is running out. England need some "bunch of wickets" quickly in order to pull this off.
  11. Champions Trophy final is on Father's Day (18th June)

    England is that kind of villanious father shown in old movies where it is revealed that he is not the true father but only assumed the role of a foster father in order to loot the entire property of the heroine(most of the times). This might be a better comparison.
  12. Fahim Ashraf vs Hardik Pandya --- Who's better?

    Sorry, my bad. He did such a basic mistake that he had to walk back to pavilion after only 15 runs....
  13. Fahim Ashraf vs Hardik Pandya --- Who's better?

    Looks like today is the day of Faheem Ashraf who will take Pakistan to a famous victory. Fingers crossed!!! What a timing in opening the thread by OP!
  14. True that. But remember we want to make sure we are sufficiently ahead of SL/Pak in NRR that it is impossible for us to be overtaken. A 50th over finish is good enough for qualification but would have made it tricky for us as we face England in semis. Having said this, I wish Rohit could have shown greater match awareness.
  15. Fair point but I believe the intent is alright but the execution is not good and the considerations such as yours should have been discussed in the lunch break.
  16. Yes, very likely the case as what the reason was. It could be that they wanted to do something different this time. Last match it was the middle-over slow down rather than the opener's slow start. And indeed they should be allowed to play their natural game and not put unnecessary pressure resulting in failure like today.
  17. It is probably all the talk of "intent" that was talked about that was in Rohit's mind. If Rohit does not take risks and builds a slow and solid foundation, people will complain he has robbed team India of runs. If he takes a risk and tries to up the run-rate and gets out, he is vindicated again for poor shot etc. He was forced to take the second approach because the first approach was not liked by ppl and he felt the additional pressure. One should let the players take their approach to win matches and not expect a uniform approach that works everytime. Rohit was only trying to win the match in a quicker way and not throwing it away. But I agree with you that he should be cautious in playing such a shot and should target the right kind of bowler.
  18. Also, this talk of higher run rate in the first 10 overs would have affected his batting as well!!!
  19. Quinton de Kock vs India in ODIs

    He has formidable stats vs India and is going to be a significant factor in tomorrow's match. He is especially good when setting a target.
  20. Quinton de Kock vs India in ODIs

    He might have done his job but he did not turn out to be dangerous like before.
  21. Quinton de Kock vs India in ODIs

    He did not play any knockouts vs India yet. It is not bad overall as he averages 49.5 with a S/R of 122.22 in 3 innings. http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/player/379143.html?class=2;filter=advanced;final_type=1;final_type=3;final_type=4;orderby=default;template=results;type=batting I
  22. I will say doing this once was alright. But if they repeat this again and again in other venues, that's when it will start being really bad!!!
  23. CT | Eng Vs Aus, | Edgebaston | June 10th. 2017

    @WC2011INDIA, What is wrong in excusing some optimism for team India. What did you find wrong with the post.
  24. CT | Eng Vs Aus, | Edgebaston | June 10th. 2017

    Yes, he included them in "World cup finalists". He also said "defending champions" which is clearly referring to India as they are the defending champions of Champions trophy. He probably meant in a "tounge-in-cheek" way and I was responding with optimism.
  25. CT | Eng Vs Aus, | Edgebaston | June 10th. 2017

    When did they get booted out? There is still hope!!!!
