  1. Thanks @BacktoCricaddict @Global.Baba There were a bunch of factors. 8 teams, so I wanted 4 Indians and 4 overseas. Wanted to cover all disciplines, batting bowling all-rounders wk. And finally, didn't want to repeat the same players as last year, so no Dhoni, VK, Bumrah, Rahul etc.

  2. Bring up the name of Shaheen Shah Afridi, and most "fans" will start muttering appreciatively and talk about his quality and class as if they were unquestionable facts. Here's some relevant statistical information: Shaheen's test bowling average in England, Aus and NZ is 43.68. His SR is 83.8. These are conditions where the bowlers get reasonable amount of assistance. Those are not the numbers of a top shelf international bowler. They are not even mediocre. Some more stats, this time in ODI Cricket - Shaheen Shah Afridi made the news recently for be

  3. By that logic, I can claim that Ajit Agarkar and Venkatesh Prasad would have been ATGs if they had "more support" from the other end. Ultimately, the quality of a bowler has to be borne out by performances. Everything else is subjective excuse-making!

  5. This 90MPH endless supply is the biggest jumla on planet earth. Can't believe Pak fans are still buying into this. Fake 16 YO Naseem, Hasnain, Musa got hyped up as some 150 kph speed demons on the back of top quality PSL speedometers and they are usually seen huffing and puffing in late 130s in int'l cricket.

  7. So the excuse for Shaheen's horribly poor test bowling performance is lack of bowling "partnerships"? Aren't greenbro cricket "fans" like the @the don running around touting their pace bowling "depth"? If there is much pace bowling tailunt in Pakistan, how can Afridi's poor performance be excused by lack of "bowling partners"? Which one is it? Is Pakistan suffering from a chronic inadequacy in pace bowling, or is Shaheen a poor bowler? Please let me know using your "have grasp cricket" knowledge.

  8. A huge reason for poor numbers are also lack of support bowlers. Even rabadaa numbers will take a hit now He is still very young in his career, numbers will get better provided he has support from other end and of-course playing at home will help ur numbers even if its low slow wkts of pakistan but a player knows those pitches really well. He is a special talent At the end him being overrated or poor or great will depend how he ll end his career. No better examples then of Ishant n Jadeja who has changed their perception in last few yrs

  9. can you name them? I saw Musa and Naseem youngsta beauties bowl 90mph but their speeds drop to 90kph in 2nd/3rd spells. Are there others?

  10. '50 others won't take the game on like he does': Pat Cummins picks Rishabh Pant as the 'most enjoyable cricketer' Pat Cummins who has shared the dressing room with Rishabh Pant in the IPL for Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) and has played a lot of Test cricket against Pant in the past three years, chose the India left-hander as the player he enjoys to watch the most in world cricket currently.

  12. After Easy paisa got sidelined from the team, Pak fans had to pick their next phassht bowling bakra and this guy was at the right place at the right time. Same was the case with Babar Azam after Afretard went away and their so called generational talent sir lord Umar Akmal ended up as a meme material...

  14. Also, Shaheen is at least 24-25. This will become obvious when he starts trundling at 128 in 4-5 years time when he should ideally be at his very peak. Just like Mo Amir.

  16. He mostly deals in defensive, back of good length bowling. Looks hesitant to pitch it up afraid that he'll get driven. Not a strike bowler yet.

  19. Keep crying. If Aus, Eng or NZ were touring SA, am sure BCCI would have been much more flexible with CSA and allowed IPL bound players to join later. Kudos to them to ensure IPL starts at full strength and showing PCB that IPL takes precedence over tours by PCB. Has that joker Ehsan Mani said something after this humiliation?

  24. I like their attack but it has its drawback Experience Planning Fitness Pressure Fielding Working as a unit Discipline All these things will hold them back. Shaheen is a superstar , had he been in IPL he wud have been a top buy . If Hassan ali achieves his CT 2017 bowling this attack becomes better.

  31. I guess you need reminding that the one time that Agarkar had Irfan bowling with him in Australia, he won a test match for India with the ball! Btw, Ankit bhai, this thread is not to discuss the obvious merits of class acts like Srinath or Sir Aggy.

  33. The Indian side of 2001 would comfortably beat the Indian side of 2020. Similarly Australian side of 2001 would smash the Australian side of 2020. Dont got me wrong its a great achievement in Indian cricket in 2020, but you cannot compare the quality of the sides. Its like saying India beating WI 3-0 in a test series is the better/greater than India winning a test in the WI during the 70s and 80s. Its not, it will never be. I wasnt alive around that time but I understand and respect the quality of WI cricket in the 80s in particular.

  34. They should not be allowed to discriminate. UK could play last year - so why not now. Dream 11 should come out and explain / defend their action. Thankfully I can watch all the games on Sky but like many other English people it is not the same fun if cannot play fantasy game. https://twitter.com/oliver_shergold/status/1380056889745104896?s=20

  35. You can't even log a complaint to these dream 11 muppets. It won't accept a UK mobile number even though I have an account there from playing last year. This type of discrimination has to be stopped. How would Indian people feel if UK held the fantasy game here but banned Indians from taking part? Borders on racist as well this does. In my opinion anyway. Are there any fantasy game alternatives guys?

  41. 1998 aus & 2001 aus was not almost same. McGrath, gillespie, gilly, Hayden & langer didn’t played in 1998 tour.1998 aus was avg team with avg batting and avg bowling. 2- zaheer, bhajji, sairaj bahutule & Nilesh Kulkarni was our bowler in Chennai test. bahutule & Kulkarni played totally 2& 3 test in entire career. Before that series zaheer played total 2 test & Harbhajan played 8 test.,so that attack was similar to gabba test attack.

  42. Pakistan has a plethora of young 90 mph quicks. Can lend a few to other countries. Shadab is finished as a bowler. Usman qadir is better but if you read him off the hand he will be jn trouble. Watch out for faisal akram. Shahnawaz dahani is another quickie to look out for. Pace bowling depth is ample. Shaheen is the best young fast bowler in the world.

  46. I am A bit confused why Pujara was chosen in IPL and Hanuma with his ability to bowl few overs wasnt. Anyways county season definitely helps.. Even the 2000s team was better. Between 1996 to 2011 India toured England 3 times 1996 : Ganguly Dravid debut. We lost 1-0. 2002: Fantastic tour: Drew 1-1. Lost in Lords after scoring 400 in fourth innings.. 2nd test in Nottingham we were basically leading with 164 runs and we could have easily set them 200 for victory in 4th innings if we had time. Ball was spinning.Mauled England in Headingley In 3rd test. Ganguly

  47. This pic shows when Kock signalled, no one knew where the throw was coming and he was pointing towards the bowler asking fielder to throw at the bowlers end.

  48. Fleming did a good job for his country by selecting Pujara and thereby not allowing him to play county cricket this season before the all important test championship Final
