  2. Good omen for us. Whenever this clown goes after one of our players, on-field performance settles the matter...latest being Sir Jaddu owning him for the last 2 years.

  3. Siraj is the only fast bowler in India who can move the ball both ways at good pace in most conditions. And bowl in good areas while doing all this. Dropping him would be a big risk in England. ( Bumrah will bowl in good areas at good pace ... but may or may not move the ball Shami will move the ball a bit at good pace ... but he may or may not bowl in good areas Ishant will bowl in good areas and get inswing ... but he may or may not get away movement or bowl at pace )

  5. Don't care about 100s or 5fers. A clutch 70/80 or momentum changing 3fer/4fer can win us a match, too much obsession over milestones. We saw that in Australia where so many 50s, 4fers, 3fers helped us get over the line. Why just 50s? I would rate those 2 knocks by Vihari and Ashwin above many individual 200s, Pant's 89* was bigger than a 300....context matters.

  6. I have listened to the full press conference and didnt like it a bit. Too much arrogance from Virat, something I have not witnessed in any Indian captain before. Yes he is a top cricketer but guroor ka nasha bahut zyada ho gaya hai. Someone should remind him, he did not win the test series in Australia...it was Rahane who did it. The only test we played under his captaincy we lost with shocking 36 all out. Even dropped the 1st test against Eng at home and then BCCI needed to tamper the pitches to win the remaining games. Under Kohli we have not won any ICC event, no test series win

  9. I think most super players of any era would be super players in other eras too. This is because ... one becomes a super player when tremendous will to succceed combines with special talent. If Kohli and Rohit played in the 1990s then they would not have picked up bad habits from T20s and would be much better players of swing as they would get to play County cricket in their formative years. Applies to all batters of today.

  12. Glenn Mcgrath has done it all. There are great specialist cricketers like Viv, SRT, Warne, Murali, Hadlee, Lillee etc etc... but Mcgrath is above ALL OF THEM. Domination of subcontinental batsmen in the subcontinent: - Indian batsmen have NOT been able to dominate him - his bowling avg in India is 21.3 - that betters the average of our greatest spinners on Indian soil - Kumble, Ash. His number of wickets are limited by the fact that he has other strike bowlers to share the spoils with - else his numbers would be even better. He has often spoken of how he likes the "carry" that Ind

  13. What a clown, let him do this nonsense in IPL and see his butt kicked. These morons think they are bigger than game itself in Bangladesh and that is one of the reasons why Bangladesh has done very little in international cricket.Clowns having too much ego.

  15. Sundar should have been in the squad of 15, could have been concussion substitute for a spinner or batsman. More versatile than Vihari, and a LHB to boot.

  16. Javed Miandad is a supporter of terrorism, promoter of violence and a relative of the most notorious criminal in the World today. He is no better than Hafeez Saeed. Sane and peace loving Pakistanis should not be proud of this rogue. I don't care what he did on the cricket field, but his views are so rotten, that he does not deserve anything but chastisement.

  20. Overreaction. People do stupid stuff on SM all the time, especially teenagers. He apologized for something he did 10 years back, that's enough....but we live in a PC world. Who knows he may be a wonderful person in real life!!!!

  21. Personally don't rate Ashwin as ATG, he is a country great for now and depending on how he ends his career he can go to the next level. For me ATG tier will be Sachin, Kallis, Sanga, Warne, McGrath, Steyn...those elite guys. Don't think a single Indian bowler has reached a level where the ATG status is undisputed. Bumrah may be the first (and safest bet) if he can get around 250 test wickets. No issue if he doesn't rate someone, but same guy will start rating every random lallu panju from Pakistan as ATG. And not just that, who can forget this gem? Treat him as equivalent of Haris

  22. You got it all wrong. They never said that this is the team of the decade, these are just names of some youngsters who espn thinks will dominate the upcoming decade. Also no one predicted that a dibbly dobbly leg spinner with an awkward technique will average 10 runs more than Tendulkar but it happened didn't it? So hold on your horses.

  23. Let me help some people here. In order to make a legendary team you atleast need 11 A grade players. Now if you have 300 B + grade players, it won't mean squat. Aaya samajh? Hayden avg 49 Langer avg 46 Ponting avg 52 Martyn avg 47 Waugh avg 50 Clarke avg 48 Katich avg 44 Lehman avg 45 Gilchrist avg 47 Hussey avg 52 These were the batting options available to the aussie team in 2002-03 I know that the resident experts here get their juices flowing when they see Sanji Samson hitting Six on a Sharjah p

  25. Jadeja-Ashwin aren't just spinners. They are all-rounders. I have more faith in Jadeja's batting than Vihari's. Ashwin isn't far behind either. Jadeja 2.0 can play as a batsman alone in our lower middle order. And Ashwin can be much more useful than a 4th seamer who can't bat.

  26. :) he is from balochistan I think. Yes when it becomes independent from pakistan definitely you can have test status. Dont worry BCCI will make sure of it and also host your team for 3 t20s and 3 odi s…

  28. A bowler playing a test match has the best chance of getting over nerves. Unlike bowlers in limited over matches or batsmen in any format ... bowlers will gèt more chances even if they bowl a few ordinary overs in a test. Moreover, Siraj is a player who thrives on confidence and momentum. His best comes out when the captain is showing faith in him and he is on a roll. We need to capitalize on this.

  29. As if we have not seen Shami (my favourite) struggle in swinging conditions before,each past experience is enough to say Siraj should play as 3rd seamer on 18th June Clown should not botch this chance ,its enough ,he has habit of making selection blunders maybe comes naturally to him

Don't be surprised if we see this XI: Gill Rohit Che Kohli Rahane Vihari Saha Jaddu/Ash Umesh Shami Bumrah/Siraj/Ishant Once that happens I want plenty of @Suhaan and @ShoonyaSifar threads on page one

  37. Imran, Wasim still have credentials to be praised. Sanju Manju ends up downplaying our stalwarts whilst praising the likes of Razzaq, Afridi, Imran Nazir, random Pak bowler averaging in the 40s like Sami......pos. Then has the nerve to say that Indian bodies aren't designed to be fast bowlers. Fully represents the very worst stereotypes of Indians...meek, submissive, inferiority complex ridden, self-hating, whiny little beech. Every time he opens his mouth with that constipated look, I want to punch a hole in my screen.

  38. Manju strikes.. England & NZ are doomed now I can see why Manju doesn't rates him an ATG though. Joburg 2013 Southampton 2014 & 2018 & Centurion 2018 are all those games where we needed Ashwin. I am sure Ashwin will get at least a couple of 5 for in SENA before retirement at least looking at how he bowled in Australia but he needs to stay fit though.

  39. We missed him badly on our tour of England 2018. He was born to bowl in English conditions. Also his lower order batting would have been handy in swinging tight matches.

  41. Yeah I especially didn't like the way he said that Team has nothing to prove.. As if he is content with what he has. Similar thoughts were echoed after a World cup Semi exit.. His PR & media on BCCI payroll sold that campaign as a successful one... When in reality that was a bigger disaster than 2015.. Where we went in as underdogs & still managed to reach semis.

  42. Srinath retired just when Indian batting firepower was coming together as a unit - Sachin, Dravid, Laxman, Sehwag, Ganguly...and later Dhoni. And while he had Kumble bowling with him, even spin stocks were bare - an endless parade of journeymen like Nilesh Kulkarni, Bhardwaj, Joshi, Chauhan, Ashish Kapoor etc to partner Kumble. A horror show. The more I go over his career, the more I get convinced of his status as the greatest Indian quick ever. I mean, look at the likes of Starc, Boult, Broad etc celebrated as modern greats. They bowl on conducive pitches and yet have a record tha

  43. Consider the team they have come up with. Gill Pucovski Zak Crawley Pathum Nissanka Sundar Pant Curran Rashid Khan Blessing Muzarabani Shaheen Afridi Naseem Shah How do you guys feel about it? Naseem and Blessing, as good as Steyn and Anderson from the decade gone by? Nissanka taking the place owned by Sachin and ABDV. Or is it just the corporate media at its finest with the monkey balancing and flashing its woke credentials?

  44. The biggest issue with horses for courses approach is that it hinders the development of the next gen all-condition players. Dhawan playing tests in 2017 kept Rahul out of the test side. Rahul had the potential to be an all condition test batsman while Dhawan did not. But that break stopped Rahul's progress as a test batsman. Umesh Yadav playing almost all tests in India resulted in Siraj's debut being pushed back by 2.5 years. Prasidh and Avesh are in the test squad because they are thought to be the next-gen all-condition pacers. It will help them develop
