  6. Dhoni's Batting Position

    Where do you want to see dhoni bat. At no 4 : Yuvraj will have to bat at no 5. And there might be occasions where he needs to slog from ball one. Yuvraj is struggling to time nowadays. Also Kedar at 6 will be a bit wasted. Because I think he is a busy player and more suited for no 4 or at Max 5. At no 5 : Yuvraj will bat at 4. Dhoni at 5. Seems comparatively better. But again Kedar at 6 will be wasted and also how much can you trust dhoni to slog from ball one. No 5 is the most crucial position in my opinion and batsman at this position can make or break matches. At no 6 : Want him to bat at this position. One of Yuvraj or dhoni should bat at this position i.e if yuvraj at 4 , dhoni at 6; if dhoni at 4, Yuvraj at 6 and depending on situation send even Pandya if playing ahead of the one at 6. Discuss.
  7. After 15 overs KKRs score was 118/3 and they just needed 50 runs in 5 overs. They were running away with the match . If they applied some mind and batted intelligently ( aka Dhoni way of chasing ) they might have easily scored 8/9 runs in an over without any risk and might have gone bang bang in the end even if they need 14/15 in the last over !!! KKR went for bang bang unnecessarily in a slow pitch and got KLPD in the end !!! This match proves that the chasing style discoverd ( or invented ) by our MSD is the best and works most of the times !!! Eliminate the risk and wait for the right moment to strike !!!
  8. Catch it Like Dhoni !!!

  9. IPL 2017: How Gautam Gambhir imitated Shah Rukh Khan from Chak De to plot RCB's downfall at Eden Gardens Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) made quite the statement while annihilating Royal Challnegers Bangalore (RCB) on Sunday. After being skittled out for a paltry 131 batting first at the high-scoring Eden Gardens, the hosts came out all guns blazing to create Indian Premier League (IPL) history. Who would expect a line-up with the likes of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle could be shot out for less than 50 in a T20 game! But KKR did the impossible with a stunning exhibition of fast-bowling. Their pace quartet of Nathan Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav, Chris Woakes and Colin de Grandhomme were simply too hot for RCB to handle. What many don't know, however, is the fact that KKR achieved this remarkable feat on the back of some stirring words by their captain Gautam Gambhir. Much like what KKR owner Shah Rukh Khan did in the inspirational movie Chak De! India , Gambhir gave a rousing speech to his team-mates after their dismal performance with the bat. In a column written for the Hindustan Times, Gambhir reflected upon his mind-set before the start of RCB's innings on Sunday. The Delhi lad was left fuming after his team's poor showing with the bat and even a cold shower couldn't cool him down. "As the innings break was nearing the end I got the entire team together. I started speaking and let go of all I had. I wanted intensity from my teammates. I wanted them to fight. I wanted them to win," wrote Gambhir. The 35-year-old then went on to reveal a serious threat made by him to his mates at that time. "I told them whoever dropped on intent should understand that this could be his last game for KKR, at least in my captaincy." Gambhir also remembered how his team-mates were "shocked and surprised" after his emotional pitch to them. He revealed how he had always been a relaxed skipper at KKR and had never imposed himself. "I thought that we were not taking enough pride. I am happy to lose spots on the IPL Fairplay award list but I can not see my team slipping on the points table," he wrote.

  10. Former India opener Navjot Singh Sidhu claims “statistics are like miniskirts; they reveal more than they hide”. Another former India opener Aakash Chopra claims “numbers Do Lie” in his new book. My take: Statistics don’t reveal. Statistics don’t do justice. Statistics need context. Case in point. Wriddhiman Saha. Fun Fact: He is India’s fourth-highest run-scorer in this home season. Wriddhiman Saha celebrates his first innings century against Australia in Ranchi. (Photo: Reuters) It may be hard to believe, but Saha actually made his Test debut way back in February 2010 – on that occasion as a specialist batsman. When he deservedly got a permanent place in the Indian Test XI as a wicket-keeper, there were arguments that his batting wasn’t quite cut out for Tests, despite a batting average of 44.48 in first-class cricket. The questions on Saha’s abilities emerged in the backdrop of him replacing the long-serving MS Dhoni, who had scored nearly 5000 runs in Test cricket at an average nearly 40. But in the last nine months, the keeper from Bengal has justified that he is not only an excellent wicket-keeper, but also a batsman who can score runs even at the Test cricket grade. Point to be noted is that Saha has accumulated those runs while generally batting at number seven or eight. (Photo: Liju Joseph/TheQuint) More interestingly, in this home season, only two Indian batsmen – Kohli (5) and Pujara (4) – have scored more hundreds than Saha. But in the context of the match situations, two of Saha’s three Test centuries could be labelled priceless. Saha scored his maiden Test century at St. Lucia on the tour of the Caribbean; on that occasion, India, having been put in to bat, were reeling at 126-5 with the cream of the batting back in the pavilion. But Saha combined with Ashwin, and the pair rescued India to a competitive first-innings total. India went on to win the Test quite convincingly. (Photo: Liju Joseph/TheQuint) The 32-year-old has only grown in confidence since. He has since added two more centuries to his kitty and his batting average has more than doubled. Saha’s second hundred came when the Indian batsmen had the opportunity to make merry on some fabulous batting conditions against Bangladesh; Saha made a busy-looking 106 – one of three centuries in that Indian innings. (Photo: Liju Joseph/TheQuint) Most recently, Saha’s third hundred came at a very crucial juncture in the match; Australia had scored 451 batting first and India were six wickets down still 123 runs in deficit. Saha combined with Pujara; the pair added 199 runs and not only took India past Australia’s first innings score, but well beyond. Saha, The Keeper Saha has played 23 Tests as India’s designated wicket-keeper, and his numbers on the batting front compare favourably to some of India’s previous wicket-keepers. In terms of runs, only Farokh Engineer (who also opened the innings), MS Dhoni and Nayan Mongia had scored more runs in their first 23 Tests than Saha currently has. In terms of Test hundreds though, Saha stands a clear winner; after 23 Tests, Engineer, Dhoni and Mongia had scored one Test century each, while Saha has three tons to his credit. (Photo: Liju Joseph/TheQuint) Saha doesn’t get credit for his wicket-keeping too – that’s because he is so good behind the stumps. India have played on some spinner-friendly (and demanding conditions for wicket-keepers) at home this season; yet, you will seldom see a mention of Saha missing an opportunity behind the stumps. Despite keeping wickets for more overs than the opposition wicket-keepers, Saha has conceded fewer byes than his opposite numbers. This, despite the fact that Saha has had to keep wickets to two of the world’s best spinners and keep wickets on fourth innings surfaces in six of the nine Test matches he has played in in this home season. While keeping wickets in the fourth innings at home this season, Saha did not concede a bye in three innings and conceded 14 byes in three other innings combined – that’s a total of 14 byes conceded in a total of 447.1 fourth-innings-overs. Aren’t those some incredible numbers? (Photo: Liju Joseph/TheQuint) Given his timely contributions with the bat and his safe glove-work behind the stumps, it is perhaps time, Saha got his due. https://www.thequint.com/infographics/2017/03/22/wriddhiman-saha-wicketkeeper-india-vs-australia-test-series
  11. It would have been tougher for Ind to win this game vs a stronger batting side which would probably have scored at least 50% more than Pak The pitch was green but again the playing 11 had only 2 seamers! While Pak crumbled under pressure and anyone who had the ball in his hand picked up wkts, good batting sides would have played relatively much better against the spinners on this surface and put on a good total more often than not .... By bowling spinners for relatively longer, Ind did not a) go for the kill and b) allowed the game to drift If Ind cannot back its pace bowlers on surfaces like this one, where would it? Selectors too could have shown the foresight of picking an additional pace bowler in place of either Bhajji or Negi I think that T20s are a lot closer to Tests in approach where the team has to look at picking up wkts most of the time. And to do that the team has to pick bowlers who are suited to the conditions. For the team to play such bowlers, the selectors also have to pick the squad smartly At the moment, it appears as if it is just the talent and form of some key players that is pulling India through, along with fielding which is outstanding
  12. I think Dhoni and the selectors both are to blame for not having a potential successor to him post retirement. i think Samson should have been given a shot more often especially now that Dhoni is at the cusp of retiring. as a player I would be ok if he kept his ego aside and contributed as a player as I still feel that he is the best keeper-bat in the country by some margin. That statement is based on lack of experience of potential youngsters and lack of confidence in saha,ojha or uthappas keeping skills. likes of ganguly, Dravid etc played on despite being removed/stepping down. likes of kumble,srinath delayed their retirement for the benefit of the team. srt in odis was definitely playing for the 100th 100 but in tests he definitely wanted to continue for a while to benefit the team. anyways does Dhoni the player still have something to offer in Lois.
  13. Dhoni and His Two Spinner Strategy

    Dhoni somehow believes that 2 spinners is the way to go in Australia.That too two finger spinners.This startegy has failed again and again and again but Dhoni doesnt learn.He claimed in the Press that we dont have a seam A/R.What the hell is Rishi Dhawan?Is he invisible?Or since he isnt a Dhoni man Dhoni will openly defy the selectors and say XYZ player doesnt exists? Its time Dhoni is relieved of his duties.He is the cause of losses.
