    Pujara's county performance thread

    If you are going as far as 90's to see a good overseas player for Yorkshire, look no further than "the master" himself!!! For a full story: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2011/jun/29/sachin-tendulkar-yorkshire-cricket

    Pujara's county performance thread

    Serious test for Pujara's abilities. It is make or break now..> This 2nd innings of Yorkshire where his team needs him to deliver and take them out of rut!
  3. He was supposed to undergo on Sunday but he could not because it was very late when he arrived on Sunday (from his trip to Russia etc. ). There was no time to give that scheduled Sunday test. The test was taken eventually on 20th and he cleared it. If he is indeed lying about his test and too publicly on his official twitter account, he can easily be called for by media etc that he is lying but have you seen any media report after that tweet from Rohit. You would not have. Also, you would not find any reliable media or even credible sites such as Cricinfo have actually reported that "Rohit did take the Yo-Yo test and he failed it". There you get the answer. I know Rohit is inconsistent/lazy, slow starter and really painful player to support but it is another extreme to find reasons to undermine him at any available occasion.
  4. He has been a match winner for team India many times. He is consistent but certainly can win matches once in a while and that too did that in knockouts of WC/CT and in his initial WT20.

    Khaleel Ahmed is impressive

    Yes, it is only an IPL game and his figures are not that impressive either, but I see tremendous potential in this young lad. He consistently clocks about 140-145 ish and has impressive bounce. He can be groomed to be the answer for India's woes for lacking decent left arm fast bowling option in test/ODI setup.
  7. He has done it by winning it for Rajasthan 10 years ago and now he is doing it again for CSK. Whataplayer.....

    Siddharth Kaul

    I think we are being too harsh on Siddharth. He produced some good spells throughout but probably wilted under presure for this game.
  9. Narine's value is greatly augmented by his transformation as a hard-hitting opener in the last few IPLs. But I would say, he is very hit/miss, as in he cannot probably never make a century like Shane did today. On the other hand, Shane Watson's bowling needs improvement but his pace is what makes difference. That is, he is hard to go for too many because of his pace even if he is not that skilled at it like Narine.
  10. You must know that Palanisamy or whoever it is no match to CB Naidu. The former cannot even tie shoe laces of the latter. Pls don't embarrass CSK with ur comparisons.
  11. Is it fake or is it real>

    Watch out for Robin uthappa in remaining matches.

    Next season, they should make Uthappa captain and see the results.... Uthappa has the potential to be very good and he played a cricket world cup at a young age of 21. He still has it in him to be a good wk batsman for team India.

    Rani Durgavati

    Both statements are not really linked with each other. Every king (or wanna be emperor) attacks kingdoms, be it of one's own religion or otherwise like Babur attacked Lodi or Satavahana attacked a lot of other Hindu kingdoms. Akbar attacked Gujarat Sultante, Bengal Sultanate, Shah Mir dynasty (i.e. Kashmir Sultanate) and many others and ensure Mughals rule over majority of India ( mostly only North India in his time)> He also attacked Hindu kingdoms and probably more so because more so would have existed. None of this has to do with his own religious views. A secular person could also be power hungry or in positive terms an emperor who wants to unite everyone together under him.

    Harbhajan signed as commentator by SKY for england tour.

    Agarkar is probably good with his cricketing analysis but I feel an air of "You know what, is n't it obvious>" whenever he speaks. Initially, I used to think that he is doing for a specific point he is making. When I look at the Cricinfo IPL videos, he always seem to talk like that.... He says something and suddenly.... you see his eyes going up and he starts to speak "But it has always been ....". I m not a great fan of his commentary and don't think he will gel with others in a jovial and relaxed manner that is expected in a test match comm box. Having said this, Bhajji might be worse choice... time will tell.
  17. https://www.thequint.com/news/india/indian-rupee-asia-currency-worst-performer Rupee Falls Below 68/$ To Become Asia’s Worst Performer In 2018
  18. I just went for a walk when it is 61 in last 6 overs. I come back to my desk... Alas..... 30 runs required of 1 ball with 6 wickets in hand.... You must be kidding me big time.... Are n't you.....RR
  19. I think Searles should be dropped from KKR squad and replaced by Mavi in their next game (i.e. Qualifier 2).
  20. Unadkat should be bowling the last over given his price.... But he was not good enough to give one more over.
  21. Unadkat ( the man from Porbandar ) abusing fielders for his giving sixers.....
  22. This is a good chance for Shubnam to showcase his talent.
  23. 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.

    AB de Villiers Retires from International Cricket

    Not at all happy with his decision. But it is his life/career. He is such a talent that he will be missed. As many ppl say here, why not play until WC 2019. You are due to complete 10,000 runs in both ODIs and tests and that way you cement your spot forever in the pantheons on cricketing greats. I am too small to say, but your mind is not upto your enormous ability, ABDV. You saying "tired" is really disappointing.
