  2. Just saw a stat on star sports that ... bumrah has 23 wickets in 25 innings with new ball i.e approximately 1 wicket with new ball every match . bhuvi has 12 wickets in 22 innings with new ball i.e approximately 1 wicket with new ball every 2 matches .(0.5 wicket per match) this means by wicket taking ability ratio (with new ball) bumrah has twice the capability than bhuvi with new ball...also bumrah beats batsmen edge on numerous occasions but not so with bhuvi ..... is this means that india needs to give chance to another new ball bowler in odis and grooms him to become good at death as well ...

  8. India usually don't tackle T20s too differently than ODIs. In the last few years, their best ODI players have also primarily made up their best T20 squads, which means they don't field many specialists. However, strong IPL performances have earned Shreyas Iyer and Mohammed Siraj a place in the squad for this series. Pitch and conditions The average T20I score at the Feroz Shah Kotla while batting first is 146, but in the IPL earlier this year, that average rose to 184. The surface at the ground is usually sluggish and two-paced. Changes in pace and cutters are potent defensive weapons. There is no chance of rain. Squad : India (probable): 1 Shikhar Dhawan, 2 Rohit Sharma, 3 Virat Kohli (capt.), 4 Dinesh Karthik, 5 Manish Pandey, 6 MS Dhoni (wk), 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Axar Patel, 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar/Jasprit Bumrah, 10 Ashish Nehra, 11 Yuzvendra Chahal New Zealand (probable): 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Kane Williamson (capt.), 3 Colin Munro, 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Tom Latham (wk), 6 Henry Nicholls, 7 Colin de Grandhomme, 8 Mitchell Santner, 9 Trent Boult, 10 Tim Southee, 11 Ish Sodhi
  9. Hardik pandya as a player

    Pandya will be a huge burden on india in tests especially overseas- cant regularly take wickets and also struggles against pace if its good length ball + he wont get 2 spinners in overseas tours... along with dhoni, he is the most overrated player in team.. best player in team is an explosive bowling all-rounder who picks up wickets regularly.. will be thrown out from team like a used condom after overseas tours...lol
  10. Venue: Green Park, Kanpur - Uttar Pradesh Pitch & conditions: Not much has been divulged about Green Park's pitch condition after the Pune fiasco involving curator Pandurang Salgaoncar allegedly agreeing to tamper with the track. But the history of the stadium says it's not going to be on the slower side. Umpires Anil Chaudhary and Michael Gough TV Umpires Rod Tucker Reserve Umpire Nitin Menon Match Referee Chris Broad Teams: India (From): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane New Zealand (From): Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham(w), Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Tom Bruce, Ish Sodhi, George Worker, Glenn Phillips, Matt Henry
  11. Virat Kohli's men will aim to bounce back and put things back on level terms when they take on New Zealand for the second ODI match in Pune. After a stunning run of six consecutive bilateral series wins, the Blackcaps have put Team India in a shocking 'save the series' situation after they upset the home side with a six-wicket victory at Wankhede, on Sunday. With the three-match series lying as 1-0 in favour of the tourists, Virat and Co have an uphill task in stopping yet another Kiwi uproar Pitch and conditions The last international match in Pune was a Test that didn't last three days. The ODI, prior to that, saw 351 chased down by Kohli and Kedar Jadhav. Runs are usually freely available at this ground, especially with short boundaries. There is no chance of rain. Squads: India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shardul Thakur. New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Adam Milne, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, George Worker and Ish Sodhi.
  12. Combined Indo Pak All Time ODI Team

    Just for fun, since the group is dull today! So, here's my dream Indo-Pak combined ODI team... Mind you, I am going without stats right now. And I am considering players who I have seen. Here's my list - Sachin Viru Kohli Saeed Anwar Yuvraj Dhoni Wasim Akram Kumble Saqlain Mushtaq Waqar Shoaib 12th and 13th players- Kapil Ddev Imran Khan The reason why Kapil and Imran dont make it to the team is because the batting and bowling is so strong, we dont need outdated players. More importantly, Imran was too slow as a batsman to be accomodated in the present ODI scenario, Kapil has a strong chance of replacing Yuvi or Saeed. I do believe this has to be almost the best combined team ever for ODI. Please share your teams and your thoughts!
  13. After receiving an eight-wicket thrashing in the second Twenty20 International , India will aim for a better show when they take on Australia in their third and final cricket match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Squads: India: Virat Kohli (captain), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Ashish Nehra, Lokesh Rahul, Axar Patel. Australia: David Warner (captain), Moises Henriques, Aaron Finch, Tim Paine (wicket-keeper), Daniel Christian, Glenn Maxwell, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Travis Head, Adam Zampa, Andrew Tye, Kane Richardson.
  14. India vs Australia T20I series will continue with the second T20 international in Guwahati. The match offers an opportunity for Australia to bounce back in the series and level it and for India, it is a chance to wrap up the series by winning the second consecutive game. India (probable) 1 Rohit Sharma, 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Manish Pandey, 5 Kedar Jadhav, 6 MS Dhoni (wk), 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Kuldeep Yadav, 9 Yuzvendra Chahal, 10 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 11 Jasprit Bumrah Australia (probable) 1 David Warner (capt), 2 Aaron Finch, 3 Travis Head, 4 Moises Henriques/Glenn Maxwell, 5 Marcus Stoinis, 6 Dan Christian, 7 Tim Paine (wk), 8 Nathan Coulter-Nile, 9 Adam Zampa/ Andrew Tye, 10 Kane Richardson, 11 Jason Behrendorff
  15. Absolutely amazed at the lack of fight shown by these players. SL players in SL were putting up a better fight. Don't feel satisfied even though we have played brilliant cricket and trashed them.

  17. Bengaluru, October 6: Ian Pont has good amount of success as a bowling coach. The Englishman has been imparting lessons on how to increase pace combined with accuracy over the last three years through Ultimate Pace Foundation (UPF). Pont, who coached international teams like Bangladesh and associated with top-of-the-shelf pacers like Dale Steyn, will conduct clinics across India in cities like Gurgaon and Vadodara to help aspiring Indian quicks gain in experience and skill ahead of sterner tests. Pont took some time off from his hectic schedule to talk to Mykhel.com about pace bowling, UPF, contemporary quick men among others. Excerpts: UPF....how's it coming along over the last three years? I started the UPF in Bengaluru in January 2014. Since then we have had 14 camps and have others planned. It's tough without a sponsor but we have spread the word to Delhi, Pune, Vadodara and Hyderabad. The coaching is based on my Four Tent Pegs developed form 20 years of research and how technical fast bowling shares many crossovers with javelin and baseball pitching - both sports which I have taken part in. Our website www.ultimatepacefoundation.com has had more than 220,000 visits in this time. Unlike other well-funded places like MRF Pace Foundation, UPF works exclusively on developing speed and teaching bowlers how to bowl quicker and more accurately. You are a regular to India in this period, have you noticed any change in the approach of young Indian bowlers? Indian bowlers bowl far too much in my view. Often they bowl for hours on end and get very little in return. It becomes very hard to develop talent without technical input and interaction. When I first started coaching in India, players were hesitant to respond and really just sat there. But now, their mindset towards learning fast bowling as changed. I believe that you should coach others as you wish to be coached yourself. In the present Indian set up, pacers get as much significance as spinners. Glad to see this cultural shift within cricket? It is great to note that India is focusing less on spin to win matches. It is terrific to see quicks doing well. But the challenge of any great quick is to take wickets overseas and win Tests in foreign conditions. The second thing is producing bowlers regularly bowling 150 kph to challenge the best batting techniques. We have yet to witness either yet, so India has work to do in this respect. As I said there are some good signs and it would be good to see the world's fastest coming out of India soon. https://www.mykhel.com/cricket/mindset-of-indian-fast-bowlers-is-changing-ian-pont-070712.html

  20. Program Whitewash loading - 60%

    3 out of 5 done. The series is sealed. No overboard celebration by India even after the victory. Shows that this team is hungry and determined for another whitewash and in the process break the record for the longest winning streak for India in ODIs. Bowling looks to be our strength and the Aussie middle order and lower middle order is very weak. We already have the chicken by the neck. Only thing left is the slaughter. Can VK lead India to a historic whitewash win again? Only time will tell... Bengaluru and nagpur up next.
  21. This team is moving towards world domination... The other streak was between Nov 2008 & Feb 2009. Special credits to the captain VK Aus on the other hand now have their 17th winless game on the road. It's going from worse to hopeless for the world champions.
  22. Ind vs Aus, Indore Starts at 01:30 PM IST (08:00 GMT), Sep 24 Will the real Australia please stand up? David Warner, why so mellow? Two games in and the visitors resemble a team that would much rather have cooled its collective heels in preparation for the Ashes, if there was an option to send 15 doppelgangers to play this ODI series. Who knows? Maybe that's what they did. For, in two indifferent performances at Chennai and Kolkata, whenever the tourists have been under a modicum of pressure, the batsmen have caved and let India run all over them. Hardly an Australian thing to do. There'll have to be a considerable reversal at the Holkar Stadium on Sunday if the series is not to be decided after just three games. And that'll need to come from the top of the batting order. Training in Indore, the visitors can already see a few more chinks of light, literally and metaphorically. The sight of Aaron Finch hustling between the wickets in the nets for a quick three should come as a soothing balm for a troubled middle-order that has lacked both depth and confidence to face Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal from a 100 for 3 situation. There are other positives. Marcus Stoinis has laid out a template in the calm art of playing spin that others would do well to follow. Also, Steven Smith was left truly miffed by the end of the Kolkata game, which can hardly be a good sign for opposition. India have been dominant without always purring along like a high-spec engine of a super car they desire to be. Runs have come at the top and the lower middle-order, but they will once again begin casting an introspective eye on their No. 4 - Manish Pandey, the bridge between the two. For all the coming together of idealogies the IPL's brought about, an Australia tour of India still remains something of a culture shock. All talk in the Indian camp has been about the desire to inject oomph to their spin strength. 'We're fine with fast bowlers, thank you very much' Australia have said, before gloriously jettisoning Adam Zampa to the bench in a classic act of nonconformist behavior. The visitors are simply playing by their strenghts, which is never a bad thing to do. To bring the series back to life, the batsmen will also need to play and not just turn up to the game. When: India vs Australia, 3rd ODI, September 24, 13:30 IST; 08:00 GMT Where: Holkar Stadium, Indore What to expect: Seasonal rains lashed Indore earlier in the week but the forecast for Sunday is all clear, with just a 10% chance of showers on the morning before the match. In a (un) welcome departure from Kolkata and Chennai, the curator has promised 'lots of runs' and slightly less purchase for spinners. The last ODI in Indore may have seen a low-scorer but the curators of Madhya Pradesh know a thing or two about feeding the double-hundred hungry. Team News: India With a series win at stake, India will steer clear of making changes unless enforced by injury. Manish Pandey has had two unconvincing games in the series at a time when he could have put the hammer down and sealed his spot for good. So KL Rahul remains in contention, although India will offer Pandey at least another game. The bowling combination - a slinger, a swinger, two wrist spinners and an all-rounder - will continue to keep Ravindra Jadeja out although India will begin to consider the cushion of a sixth bowling option (Kedar Jadhav) on a good batting day. Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal Australia "He brings a lot of aggression at the top of the batting order," said Warner without definitely confirming the return of Finch. If the burly opener shakes off his calf niggle to get into the playing XI, that would resign Hilton Cartwright to the bench. Since his maiden ODI hundred against Pakistan in January, Matthew Wade has been dismissed for single-figure scores in five of the six innings, with his scores reading 35, 5, 8, 2, 9 and 2. Peter Handscomb practiced with the 'keeping gloves under the watchful eyes of Brad Haddin and could be a possible inclusion. Probable XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steven Smith (c), Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade/Peter Handscomb (wk), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson Did you know? - Virat Kohli is 41 runs away from scoring 2000 runs as skipper. He has 1959 runs from 34 innings and has six innings in hand to break AB de Villiers's record of fastest to 2000 runs as skipper. - India have won all their four ODIs at the Holkar Stadium - two against England and one each against West Indies and South Africa. - A win in the third ODI would equal India's longest winning streak - nine ODIs between 14 Nov 2008 and 05 Feb 2009. Kohli now has had three separate streaks of eight wins each. What they said: "When we became world champions, we were playing with a different team. There was a different dynamic. The team has undergone some chopping and changing. We have to find a stable team and one which works out best for the 2019 World Cup." - David Warner reckoned that the current Australian ODI team was still a work in progress. "They [Kuldeep and Chahal] are getting better day by day. But they are not taking things for granted, not taking things lightly, so that's a good thing." - Ajinkya Rahane jumps in on the wrist spinner bandwagon. Teams: India (From): Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli(c), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni(w), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Lokesh Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav Australia (From): Aaron Finch, David Warner, Steven Smith(c), Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade(w), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson, James Faulkner, Peter Handscomb, Adam Zampa, Hilton Cartwright http://m.cricbuzz.com/cricket-commentary/18858/ind-vs-aus-3rd-odi-australia-tour-of-india-2017
  23. What terrific bowling that..anyone who saw his bowling yesterday would have noticed the difference between bhuvi that played in SL and this bhuvi.Made the pitch look like it was lush green. 2 great wickets up-front at that economy rate.. brilliant performance. Yes Kohli played a superb knock of 91 but he does that always...bhuvi should have got the MoM.
