  2. Kohli left Australian shores with India on new low of folding under 40 runs in last innings of Pink ball test and many of the regular guys getting injured on regular basis , didn't help either But ever since his departure ,went away the negativity and mental fatigue of Indians they restarted Mission Resurrection and emerged victorious where visitors seldomly taste success Now in India he returns and thus returns the mediocrity, negativity and what not,we succumbed to shameful loss where just months ago we pulled off one of the best rear guard action against all odds in fo

    Might be onto something here. When he rushed to massage Root's feet after he smacked a 6 - instead of being pissed at his bowler etc- it telegraphed big cuck vibes. Is he a cuckold?

  10. Shami has been an amazing bowler in tests in Asia. One of the very best. And he has done really well in tests in Australia, WI and SA in the last 5 years. He has 9 four wicket hauls too. Fifers is not the only measure of success.

  11. Oh great, statsguru is back! I can see the date filters to skip earlier years and #4 batting position being skipped since Kohli scored some. What an achievement to beat Dhawan & Rahul in Eng tests! Can he 'step up' to the level of higher targets

  13. On the contrary the overrated experienced spinner gets another chance to put up a batting masterclass and teach the English scrubs how to bat on such wickets, clearly after what we saw in T2 even someone like Stokes is found lacking. And not just English batsmen, maybe the Kiwis too can take some notes seeing how poor they are when they visit Indian shores...they are scheduled to visit India this Sep-Oct, maybe just maybe they can learn something so that they don't make complete fools out of themselves yet again. We are actually doing them a favor, completing their cricket education or at leas

  15. The one big positive from the Aussie series has been the rise of Md Siraj. Having played the second fiddle for a long time, Siraj has rightfully snatched the title of being one of the most exciting prospects from India. What has been most impressive is his readiness to the occasion, aggression and being 2 steps ahead of the batsmen. One would have hardly witnessed such a thinking bowler playing his first big series, yet outthinking established batsmen. Here’s my 2 pence on Md Siraj- Bowling action: Simple, minimal and effortless. Smooth athletic run-up without any fuss, and an

  19. but you said a guy who saved that game in the end and took 13 wickets in the same series and was one of the highest wickets takers for India and then took 20 wickets already in the next 3 tests should raise his game so what is the benchmark for Pujara?

  20. Its a coping mechanism, and its a popular myth that 'sells' in Pakistan. Kindof like the exaggerated BS in India about how Indians invented all kinds of sci-fi stuff back in the ancient days.

  21. Now I know how easily people are manipulated. You guys in particular. A few people on this thread have already blamed Jaffer from a religious perspective. You don't have a frikkin clue - because this is a selection issue. Religion has been deliberately brought up by Verma the BCCI appointed cricket association secretary to discredit Jaffer. Both Verma and Jaffer are 'outsiders'(to Uttarakand). But at least Jaffer has credibilty. Verma, on the other hand is a nonentity, a piece of work (supported by scumbag Shukla). Verma and his gang had one selecti

  25. So India beat a weak English team 2-0 in 1986 but suddenly in 1987 they became powerful team when tamperers beat them 1-0. Peak Lahori logic.

  26. The pink ball needs extra lacquer to improve visibility. The seam has to be more prominent and harder too, probably to counter possible dew. All this is making the balls skid faster than expected and quicker than usual. In this match 21 out of the 30 wickets to fall were off straight balls. There is unpredictable swing under lights too. In a nutshell, the ball presents a challenge by itself. India collapsed for 36 in our last match. This match has ended in less than 2 days. Our first pink ball test did not last long enough either.

  29. LINK India vs England, 2nd Test: Even as several former cricketers criticised the spin-friendly nature of the Chepauk pitch, R Ashwin said batting in challenging conditions is an art and batsmen need to stay patient to adapt to such pitches. "When it comes to spin, unfortunately, people don't expect... they want conditions in their favour, driving, cutting everything needs to happen. But when it comes to a seaming wicket, you can't do all those when you start in the morning. I think the same kind of benchmarks need to be set when you play spin on a challenging pitch

  31. He has tried to finish off Pujara and Rahane's career also. Benched Siraj right after a 5fer. Should have given him his first cap 1-2 years ago. Dumped Pant from LOIs for makeshift keeper Rahul and tried to finish off his test career also, with specialist keeper theory. Kept Gill on the bench for years. Dropped KL Rahul after a fantastic test series against the Aussies where he himself went AWOL with the excuse that Rahul failed to convert his scores to centuries. The list of his blatant blunders is very long.

  37. Not that simple. Humans have done well when they have good systems in place and have invested in creating proper infrastructure. The Indian civilization had done really well in this respect till 1000 A.D or thereabouts. Lots of emperors had set in place really good systems for running their empires. And our system of Ayurvedic medicine was good for that era. We definitely contributed strongly to the progress of human civilization till that time and subsequent civilization systems had their bases formed from this. The West took over from the 18th

  39. It shows our mentality that most are going after Jaffer without agreeing to his side of the story. He is the doemstic great having played for India, yet we dont trust him because he is a muslim. What credential this Mahim varma having? Just because he is some BCCI babu, he can accuse Jaffer after his resignation? Mahim Varma is saying they are not happy with the UK performance in Syed mushtaq Ali trophy and they decided to change the captain. Thats insane if you decide to act based on t-20 results. Now as far he preferred Muslim players, how many Muslim players were there in the t

  42. Real score= actual score x body weight in metric tons x bonus points for being in x pitch difficulty factor / number of cringe ads by the said batsman For Rohit Sharma it is 66*3*10*10/10= 1980 Sounds about right.
