    Adios Pakistan

    I had high hopes, naturally. Sadly, it was not to be. Yes I feel very sad/upset. But, I am proud of how you fought from being bottom of the pile to almost 4th. To beat favourites Eng & a unbeaten NZ was inspirational. The 92 vs 19 comparison was fun whilst it lasted..gave padosis a scare infact :D Indian’s can diss all they want but fact is Ind cricket is far superior. Good luck to them in the semi’s & final! As for Pak team, I am looking forward to the retirement of Malik & Hafeez..two very average cricketers that have had a free ride for the last 10yrs. I believe these two have been a massive obstacle. We’ll be back stronger in 2023.

    Advice by Dhoni

    Y'day, I went to a restaurant and loved the food. I complimented the chef for his good work but the chef gave the credit to Dhoni, who had advised on the composition of the ingredients! Dhoni

    Umar Akmal, WTF!

    Umar Akmal should go back to cinema. Don't forget, prior to cricket he was a background dancer in bollywood movies. 'Tu Cheez Badi hai mast mast...saani dha...saani dha' Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Every effing social networking site I visit whether it's Twitter , Instagram, WhatsApp Facebook fukc even Reddit , all I am getting is the nauseating worshipping (read asslicking) for grandpa. I mean wtf is wrong with people? How are they buying this easily into the thala PR machinery ? Or are they just choosing to be delusional? Don't they fukcing know that their hero grandpa is also one of the reasons why we lost yesterday ? Had he supported Jaddu a little bit by hitting a few boundaries or atleast....atleast rotated the strike better , we would have fukcing won. Every facking newsfeed is filled with utter cringeworthy filth of obnoxious and irrational Dhoni asslicking. I almost wanted to smash my phone out of frustration at a point. No one's even acknowledging Jaddu for what he did. All they want is their favorite thala to continue playing with those beautiful lunges until the next world cup. Maha chutiye bhare pade hai BC is Desh mein !!! P.S - I am not hating on him nor I have any agenda against him , but it's just sickening to see his whole PR doing the cover up job and everyone falling for it.

As a bowler, you can't end up bowling extraordinary spells every time you go out to bowl. The idea is that if I am going to go for 20 runs in a particular over, then I should be able to bring the runs down to 16, 14 or 15 in the next over." "Certainly I have my eyes on World Cup. The positivity that I bring into the game and the amount of confidence I have, the way I am passionate about the game will help the team to win the World Cup or at least do the job fairly,"

    My heartiest love and kisses to Team Blue for defeating 5 time world champs (and defending champs) Team Yellow. It gave vibrations of a Night Shyamalan twist in a Manmohan Desai classic. Magnificent to see saffron spirit on fire like we saw a few minutes back. From the depths of despair a new life was infused into Indian cricket. It looked like a mighty army of dead resurrected from the grave, like how old Big B jumped out of hospital bed to fight 100 villains in Sooryavansham....only this time there were 11 Big Bs. I myself citizen Gollum wrote India off after they were beaten at home by Australia-Z who back then were literally dead and buried, but then spectacularly revived themselves like Team Imhotep in Mummy. Imagine losing 3 games on a trot at home where prey became predator in a classic role reversal epic. To me today India simply rose like Dumbledore's Phoenix and Kohli was like a Norse commander leading his troops to glory, Dhoni was an Egyptian God and Dhawan the Greek hero...there covered the 3 main civilizations in Age of Mythology 2012 version It once again proved that when Indian spirit blazes at its zenith only Majid's lantern burns brighter. It was like lion chasing deer, snake chasing rodent, shark hunting salmon, eagle in pursuit of hare, ED raiding Vadra, myself raiding my fridge on weekend night. Tiny little Hobbits pulled down Sauron of the cricket world. To me the best ever resurrection in cricket history. To summarize the match: Rohit: artistry at its supreme height with rubber wrists maneuvering the field like how we maneuver Rajasthani Thali Dhawan: poetry in motion like a pianist in complete control of the keys and inspiration coming from the gentle autumn breeze Kohli: mathematician, physicist, poet, engineer, doctor, lawyer, trader, teacher, lover and MMA fighter rolled into one Pandya: a perfect combination of Mozart's mind in Hulk's body Dhoni: an aging boxer landing them hard blows like sledgehammer on a cute kitten, taking the fans back in time when he reigned supreme Rahul: an atom bomb in a fish pond, a gymnast's mind in a panther's body on the field Bumrah: a cannon with the precision of a neurosurgeon, a ballistic missile fired with the grace of a ballet dancer Kuldeep: a painter using the pitch as a canvas to pay tribute to Da Vinci Chahal: like a wizard indulging in the dark arts while hapless batsmen look in bewilderment Bhuvi: unexpected thunderstorm mowing down the opponent camp blending the artistry of Picasso, genius of Kasparov and bravery of a Gurkha soldier Jadhav: why the * was he there? A great day for cricket, humanity, community, society and piety. It was tragic to see the once great hunters reduced to prey at home turf earlier this year. But now by felling the most powerful force in the cricket universe who knows even India may feel Majid Majid Majid a month later.

    India, a country with population in billions with arguably biggest Cricket fanbase (crazy or casual). BCCI richest board minting loads of money. Decent infrastructure and reach within the country in this decade. Cricketers are like treated like Gods and paid in millions. Taking into view the above, it's amazing to see people satisfied with India reaching semi finals. Ridiculous. Why are we satisfied with mediocrity?

    Well it took SL 21 years after 1975 to win their first and it will be 20 years since Bangladesh made their World Cup debut in 1999 in England!. Can life come full circle and Bangladesh win the world cup 2019 in England? They have become a good ODI side, become a force at home, whitewashed Pakistan, beat India, beat SA. They have many things going for them: - with all the rage about all-rounders, they have the best AR in the world in Sakib - A bowler in top 5 - The Fizz - An opening batsmen to rival one of Rohit or Dhawan in Tamim Iqbal - A pocket rocket keeper, probably current the best wicket keeper batsmen in Rahim and dance moves to put the West Indians to shame - A Saurav Ganguly clone in Soumya Sarkar - Kohli's nemesis Rubel will charged up and give 110% as ever - A captain who now has REAL political power - Reached QF of last world cup - Reached SF of ICC CT in England!, only to be denied by rulings to favour India - Nearly came close to beating India and causing a historical upset in the recent Asia Cup - And....contingent of hair-raising fans with emotions and tears to flood the plains of Brahmaputra

    1. Mumbai Indians Strength- Everything, even if they wont have gone in the Auction they still wud have been a very good team. Addition of boult n Lynn have made them very powerful. Bowling lineup - malinga, Bumrah, boult.....wow best and experinced Fielding- Boult, Hardik, Pollard, Rahul chahar are outstanding fielders Indian all rounder- Pandya bros Think tank has great minds- Rohit, mahela, Sachin, Bond, Zak, malinga, Boult, Bumrah , Wright Weakness- Post Rahul chahar spin bowling Dept looks weak no backup Hardik pandya which isnt even avl . Other comments They Shud include Lynn instead of kock which wud be more ideal with somone like Rohit and they enough depth to go bang bang from ball -1 How the Fck does tiwary get picked again n again 2. RCB Strength- Batting looks mighty good now . Finch n morris are very good buys ....they shud pray morris finds some form Good Indian core- Kohli, Sundar, Dube,Chahal, Saini,Siraj, umesh, Devdutt Weakness- Bowling still doesnt look great and Kohli the captain will somehow screw a good team again Other comments How do they fit in Devdutt, they shud think about making Gurkeerat keep wkts. Neways Parthiv is a terrible keeper and Siraj or umesh if u play them extra bowler will leak runs only so if ur bowling aint that good make sure ur batting can put or chase any total . Hesson n Katich shud take more charge of selection n tell kohli to be more of captain on field n take help from finch Why did they spend 4 cr on Richardson 3. KKR Strength- Batting looks very powerful with inclusion of Banton, Tripathi n morgon. Wont be wrong to say they have the most powerful middle order Weakness- I wud say depth in Indian batting n spin bowling. Overseas backups in batting doesnt look great either Other comments They shud include banton instead of Narine as narine the bowler isnt same banton can bowl a bit. KKR top order needs a force and banton is being touted very highly by every expert. They need someone who can give great platform for the middle order. They shud hope mavi stays fit and kuldeep form get better 4. RR Strength- one of the best 4 overseas any team can have which covers most bases - Butler, Smith, Stokes, Archer. Some young Indian talent - Samson, Parag, Kartik tyagi, gopal, markhande, Rajpoot can actually surprise people . Addition of uthappa is good Weakness - Backup of overseas batsman isnt good ....just miller They shud give uthappa finishers role as it ll allow smith to bat at 3 his best alone position n stokes n parag to bat up. uthappa has done that for India in few innings and can do here as well....while finishing u need experience and he has it Gopal, markhande, Tewatia are lucky to be working with warne for those days. 5. KXIP Strength- KL Rahul, Pooran, Cottrell . Jordon n Neesham are good buys Weakness- To many mayank, Nair, mandeep, Sarfraz, hooda,sucith hasnt set IPL on fire ....so Indian core isnt great Gayle n maxwell are very inconsistent. If none has a good season they are screwed Shami their best indian fast bowler isnt good in t20 backup indian fast bowling doesnt look good To many loopholes wont allow them to play best 4 overseas players Owners interfere a lot For them a lot of things have to click or else they i dont seem them doing well and their owners are worst in this situation. Will depend a lot on Rahul n Kumble keep team enviorment. They have some match winners but not team . In such cases a lot depend on resources are used when they arent that great. 6. Delhi Captial Strength- Batting became more powerful. Utility specialist like ashwin, woakes and then other all rounder like Paul, Axar, harshal will allow them to be very flexible. Good backup overalls. All their talent is on rise in terms of Skill and experience Weakness- Lower middle order doesnt have match winners its mostly in top or middle which might affect one of indian batsman position Problem of plenty in top order and utility all rounder can mess up combination. Playing Right combination wud be the key 7. SRH They could have looked at uthappa in Auction or someone to exchange in middle order or fast bowling during transfer Strength - What top 3 Fielding- Warner, Williamson, manish, Shankar very good fielders to have on field Captaincy Core- Warner, Williamson, manish are very good minds to have Weakness- Bowling - Bhuvi form n injury , Kaul was soughted last season. Sandeep is similar to bhuvi and Thampi leaks so fast bowling back isnt geart anymore due to top 3 they cant add overseas player in bowling or all rounder top 3 heavy Lack of impact players in Lower order middle order - Manish, Shankar, Virat singh, Garg arent very destructive. Garg n abhishek can be but they are very young Indian batting has option but lacks flair and experience apart from Manish. Garg n abhishek are good but are very young as well so u cant rely on them. No overseas fast bowling backup May be they have to look at benching williamson to add someone like Nabi or Stanlake to get balance better . 8. CSK A team being laughed off in last 2 years as Dad's army having last laugh showing how much experience matters. Their team culture is recognized as best by other IPL team players. Strength Experience- Most important thing in winning tournaments Captaincy core- Dhoni, Faf, Fleming Curran , Chawla are very good additions Backups for everyone apart from dhoni Team culture Weakness Lack of match pratice for most - Dhoni, raina, rayudu , bhajji . Even Watson doesnt play international so this could backfire big time Fielding- even though they have faf, bravo , jadeja, raina still they have many liabilties No death bowler apart from bravo who teams have figured out I wont comment on them as they prove everyone otherwise every year First XI MI CSK RCB KKR SRH KXIP RR DC 1 Lynn Faf Finch Banton/Narine Warner Rahul Butler Shaw 2 Rohit Watson Devdutt Tripathi Bairstrow mayank Samson Pant 3 Kishen Raina Kohli Gill Williamson Pooran Smith Heytmer 4 Pollard Rayudu ABDV Morgan Manish Maxwell Stokes Pant 5 Hardik Dhoni Dube Rana Abhishek Nair/Sarfraz Riyan parag Iyer 6 SKY Bravo/curran Sundar DK Shankar Mandeep singh uthappa Harshal patel 7 Krunal Jadeja Morris/Moeen ali Russell Rashid khan Suchith/hooda Lomror/ Kartik tyagi Axar 8 Rahul Chahar Chahar Mann (keeper) Cummins Nadeem Neesham/jordon/mujeeb Gopal Ashwin 9 Boult Chawla Steyn Kuldeep Kaul/Sandeep/Thampi Gowtham Tewatia/Markhande Woakes 10 Malinga Bhajji Saini Prasidh Bhuvi Cottrell Archer Rabadda 11 Bumrah Ngidi Chahal Mavi Khaleel Shami Rajpoot Lamichane/Stonis/Carrey/Keemo Paul Best Openers- SRH Best middle order n finishers - KKR Best Spin bowling- CSK Best Fast bowling - MI Best young Indian batting- DC Best Young indian bowling - KKR Best 4 overseas in one team- RR Best Indian Core without overseas- MI....Csk can also be but they fail due to lack of match practice

    Not developing a strong enough middle order, when there was time on hand before the WC , was a ticking time bomb waiting to explode. And it did yesterday. And it is not an observation based on hindsight as everyone kept talking about this for 2 years now Kohli probably lacks the confidence to be a LOI captain without help from an experienced ex-captain. This led to him hanging on to. Dhoni way past his " sell by date ". And this resulted in Pant not being allowed to settle in, as Dhoni's position in the team would be questioned even more if a young keeper batsman does well. Why a non-keeper batsman was not allowed to settle in at No.4 is beyond me. ! Add to this, Kohli's faith in TTFs in the batting department instead of new talent. I keep hearing and reading that a bad 45 minutes cost us this Cup. Not true. A top order collapse, with the ball swinging, can always happen especially in England. Planning to counter that, by developing a good middle order, was not done Kohli is a defensive captain in LOIs despite his verbal bravado and pseudo aggressive body language on field. He prefers defensive pacers compared to wicket takers like Shami. We don't have a true wicket in the first 10 overs. This aspect contributed to yesterday's loss too. The ball was moving around and we managed to take just 1 wicket in the first 10 overs. Who knows, 239 was probably 20 or 30 runs too many given the conditions. Kohli, the LOI captain, would need a lot of luck to win big tournaments because he lacks confidence as a LOI captain, is not ruthless enough to take tough decisions, is defensive in his choice of pacers and chokes as a batsman in crucial LOI matches.

    LONDON: Former Australia captain Steve Waugh believes that his country has the best phasing out policy for the biggest names unlike the subcontinent where it becomes difficult to move on once players attain legendary status. Waugh was asked the question in context of the debate surrounding Mahendra Singh Dhoni's future in international cricket after India's semi-final exit from the World Cup. "It's interesting. Australia definitely do that. It doesn't matter who you are because you have got to move on," Waugh said when asked about Cricket Australia's retirement policy and his own exit from international scene in early 2004. But Waugh, one of Australia's most successful skippers, feels that it won't be correct to equate Australia's situation with India. "May be in the subcontinent you get a bit more leeway with 1.4 billion people following you. People no longer remain people. They become legends, Gods. It's very hard to move on," he said. "It becomes increasingly challenging when people get to a certain age. Mahendra Singh Dhoni you are referring to is still a great player," said Waugh. In simpler words, he's saying "Jab tak Hindustan mein ye Heropanti bhagwan bhakti ka chutiyapa chalta rahega tab tak Dhongi jaise Buddhon Ko laat maarke nikalna mushkil hi nhi namumkin hai."

    This is simply not good enough for any team. Imagine shutting shop because you are 3-4 wickets down at death and trying to protect wickets. There is no way we will survive against big boys on flat pitches and how long will the top 3 and our bowling keep saving us? Pant's inclusion had an immediate impact on the team today and his innings was a big difference otherwise we would have ended up below 300

    Dhoni's strategy: Others play well - Dhoni guided them and wasn't required to score runs himself at all Others don't play well - Dhoni had to play the 25(40) ball innings to bail the team out Either way it is win win. Easy, right?

    Not that we (Indians) are any saint and every country has got their fair share of emotional fans. But when it comes to being worst, there are hardly any competition to Bangla fans. I am actually not able to find an adjective to define them - Aabegi, Jazbaati, Junooni, Minnowisque or pure retards? First of all, it is clearly written in ICC protocol that failure to report the approach of a bookie is a corruption and can led to a ban. Players are taught this time and again. An experienced player like Shakib was well aware of this but did not report it, not once but on 3 occasions. Not only that, he even wanted to meet the bookie, deleted the questionable interactions in whatsapp and discussed about Bitcoin payments. So this notion that 'Oh So Innocent Shakib' just forgot to report it to ACU is a lie and there was something more sinister about it. He himself knew it very well, didn't wanted to drag this matter anymore and accepted the verdict unchallenged. Many would even argue that he got away with a lenient ban. Also, he is not the first cricketer banned for this offense. Kushal Lokuarrachi (18 months), Siddhart Trivedi (1 year), Jean Symes (7Years), Lou Vincent (3 years) etc. all faced bans before for failure to report a bookie. Rather than accepting the gravity of the situation, the behavior of the Bangla fans disgust me to the core. They have totally hijacked ICC page and spamming on every post, even on those that are not related to BD cricket. They are also relentlessly spamming twitter accounts of Micheal Vaughan, Ramiz Raja, Scott Styris etc. who criticized Shakib on their twitter page. Good on Vaughanny though (being the troll he is) for taking Bangla fans head on. Some of them even sending facebook message to Kohli & Rohit's public page saying "Hey I am a bookie. I have a offer of millions of dollars if you pass team info", taking screenshot of that and posting in ICC page saying Virat and Rohit also failed to report approach of bookie and now pls ban them or else 'Aamago Shakib ko firiya dao (Pardon our Shakib) I know the above may sound funny but I am totally disgusted at their behavior. And this is not only the first time they are acting immaturely. Remember after Asia cup loss last year, they hijacked Kohli's twitter account? Then they created chopped head picture of MS Dhoni in 2016? List goes on and on. For far too long people ignored these considering they are minnows but looks like it is getting worse day by day. Gets thrashed against Afg in a home test and acts like they are some world beaters Bangladeshi fans need to accept that Shakib was involved in shady affairs like Ashrafool was and being banned correctly. Get a life, retards!!
