  1. In fact, one can argue, the finest moment in Indian cricket! The most courage and grit I have ever seen, and I have been watching since the days of Gavaskar.

  3. I can understand why Pak fans might be pissed off and it is valid given that there is an ICC rule disallowing it.. The rule itself however is stupid.. Why should batsmen always get the advantage.. What next? A bowler should let the batsman know that he is going to deceive him with a slower ball or googly? It is the batsman's responsibility to be attentive to the situation and complete the run as fast as he can

  6. This is an exclusive club (read: thread) buddy. Your captain has the mental age of a 2 year old Bonobo. Not of legal age to enter the club. He has to age at least 3 centuries before fans of his team can join this thread.

  7. Good that he is not in the picture for T20s. Let him play Tests & 50 overs where strike rate of 100+ is fine . It good for him too. Re: T20 strike rate , within couple of years all these crap will stop . Players will have to play with high strike rate or else they will not find a place in team.

  8. He played the short stuff quite well . Do not understand why a near 200 with 125 strike rate vs Nortje , Rabada, Shamshi should not be rated just cos its from a pakistani. ? Feel there are 2 world class players in Babar & Shaheen and like their game , esp. Babar vs Pace .

  11. Credit should be given where it’s due. The innings was class. Not to forget njorte and rabada are class bowlers. An innings like this coming from a weak line up like Pakistan is pretty good imo

  12. But if you do that and they do well, then the clamor begins to bat them higher, and the ad dollars start shifting quickly to the young "next" star. Why risk that when you can milk status quo for another 3 + years easily without any accountability.

  15. I am so thankful for England who forced us to change a bit at least in t20. gill actually needs to work on this part of game if he wants to fulfill his potential in every format. Also with guys like pant becoming stars with aggressive approach I am sure the seniors will be forced to play aggressive too.

  19. To be fair to the batsman here, he hasn't uttered a word and quitely accepted the verdict and moved on, it's the Pakistan fans and media who are crying foul over it.

  23. Gavaskar ,Tendulkar and Sehwag probably did it when they had made it and knew what worked for them. It is too early for Shaw . Besides how is the coach supposed to work on someone's shortcomings if he won't put in the effort.

  28. ^^^ Bull fucckkkin shitttee. What sorta rule is this?. Are we playing in middle school? If the batsman is gullible enough to fall for this stupid trick then it is his fault. His job is to run fast and make the run asap. Who asked the batsman to be looking at the wicket keeper when his job is to make the run.

  30. I don't think we should select another player who plays for average but not for strike rate, especially in this format. Would avoid Padikkal and prefer Kishan being picked. Leftie as well who can replace Dhawan down some day in future. Kishan - 516 runs at strike rate 145 in 13 innings Paddikal - 473 runs in 15 innings at strike rate 124. Paddikal played more innings but still scored less runs than Kishan and his strike rate was also very lower in comparison. Moreover, Kishan gives the option to keep if Pant gets injured during match.

  34. batted at a snail's pace and then got going which is why i don't rate this innings THAT highly despite the number of runs he scored, sometimes in that sort of situation a batsman can end up scoring a lot of soft runs when the team itself is expected to fold like a cheap suit. Pakistan were out of it by the time he got going and was running out of partners and he took full toll of the 2 overs of spin he was offered at that stage.

  36. Then why play T20 cricket and odis? Just play tests The seniors have set such a wrong precedent for these newcomers that they have decided just to echo their lines and stay in reckoning, he's modelling himself to be the next Kohli,when he needs to understand that Kohli's era of batting is gone,he needs to be an upgrade or else be prepared to be called "old school"

  37. Do you remember? Do Indian fans of a certain generation recall the years of trauma of being shown up by Sri Lanka? It was as if our collective egos were put inside a washing machine, drowned in a maelstrom, and hung out to dry. For decades Indian fans mostly thought of Lankan cricket with casual condescension, if not contempt. Compete with us? Hell not the 'little' Sri Lankans, not against big brother India. Then came the 96 world cup - the game in Delhi when Jaya and Kalu took us to the cleaners. I refused to believe the evidence of my eyes. This

  44. Batsmans job is to run and watch the ball if needed. Not look at opponent players hand signals. Its like crying over missing a train because a fellow commuter told you a wrong platform number.

  45. Absolutely. Consider the implications if QdK and Saffers were penalized for this incident. Now keepers or fielders collecting the ball at non striker's end cannot signal to the fielder which end to throw the ball at simply because the batsman might get deceived? The outraging snowflakes would wreck the game

  46. Indians fans are happy about this incident but starts crying when someone do minor joke at their players. The incident in Aus 2008 was funnier too when Symmonds made mockery of Harbhajan I guess.

  48. Lol. At least kl rahul saying that made bit sense cause he used to bat at 145 - 150 sr in ipl (before his statement) but gill himself plays at strike rate of 120s and now is saying it's overrated. Edit: His strike rate every year in ipl: 2018 - 146 2019 - 124 2020 - 117 2021 - ? maybe around 100 - 105

  49. What a champ! Without that mindset, he wouldn't have been able to drag us back into the contest after 2 early wickets. He batted as if it were just another day at work for him.
