  1. I guess t20 is not format for him I guess most tracks are not good for his bowling I guess he is not good at home Maybe he is just not good enough cricketer ? That would explain everything else .
  2. i do not think self harm is allowed on this site.
  3. They lost chasing 30 runs at run a ball. Whatever the approach is they need to find some new talent for middle and lower middle order as this dk is unreliable at best.
  4. These guys know better about how bowlers are bowling in nets and skills they have developed. he might actually have impressed them during prep phase and got this role. This is not one game reaction but rather him admitting that this is his role.
  5. Good for him. This is least he deserves as his career was going so well.
  6. In t20 even one player like Kohli is difficult to fit now a days .. that’s why he is thinking of opening. Even with high average you need atleast 140 strike rate . Malan is number 1 t20 player but will be first to be dropped from English side as you cannot afford slow starters /accumulators in white ball cricket anymore. you still need balance, I agree with that . But you have players like kl Rahul in t20 who average high with much higher strike rate than Gill playing in same position .. so unless he does not want to play for India in t20 he needs to improve strike rate .
  7. that is sadly probably true. there are other threads talking about how shastri / kohli should develop pant and imo he is doing well today despite them. also this is such crap thinking as if you win cup you get remembered forever.
  8. Same way Jadhav did or Rayudu was supposed to...and don’t forget 3D player. Our plan was bad and players who were chosen under the hill to implement that plan. If guys like Iyer and pant were played for entire year before cup we might have won that semi final.
  9. 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.
  10. Nortje is unplayable atm. probably broke the toe of batsman with 150k Yorker lmao
  11. I worry for this side due to pandemic. take care guys.
  12. Bit bounce in track and solid technique falls apart
  13. Watch him play. I had good laugh when he was hitting every half volley straight to point and cover. Lmao
  14. we can pick bowlers who can bat a bit like thakur. also if we are going to play aggressive we need bit of insurance with players like washington sundar. add jadeja and hardik and you got lot of bowling options.
  15. i started watching around 2003 and even then the fielding was abysmal. Bowling mediocre so i cannot imagine how bad things were before lol. also yeah i hated jayasuriya..he got injured once and came back to play at 7 and still won them the game lmao
  16. what a year he is having..sad for iyer but this is right decision instead of making some old indian or international player the captain.
  17. I am with you but thakur surely should never bowl in last 5 .
  18. i think we could have defended this much easier. why dont you bowl thakur in middle overs and finish his spell and let death over specialist like nattu bowl at end ? what did they accomplish by saving his overs at end against curran who always hits thakur. as for attack i feel sundar and jadeja will play as spinners in future and give much needed depth..quicks you have plenty to choose from but thakur is one of kind who constantly gets wickets in middle..need to use him wisely.
