    You know what, I don't think I want Anil Kumble as Coach of Team India.

    Whenever Mayank Agarwal is leading scorer of Punjab team, his team finds a way to throw the match into the gutter.
     
    Whether it was opening match vs DC last year, or his 99 in one of the games this year where he captained or that Tewatia match last year or today, his team puts his down more than anyone else.

    sscomp32 reacted to nevada in Kohli has gone 50 innings wihtout a century!   
    Kohli has now gone 50 innings in international cricket without scoring a century. The last time he went past the three-figure mark was way back in 2019 in the day-night Test match against Bangladesh in Kolkata.  In the ongoing Test series in England, Kohli has managed just 69 runs in four innings with a best of 42, falling to caught behind dismissals (caught by wicketkeeper or in the slips) in the four times he has been dismissed so far in the series.
     
    Finally, an article calling out his lack of runs. It's always Pujara and Rahane whose failure is highlighted.

    20 overs. But 5 ball overs instead of 6. 
     
    Also a bowler can bowl 2 overs in a row if he/she wants. Batter change ends only after 10 balls.but they don't use the term overs. It's eliminated. It's only balls.  
     
      
     
    After a dismissal only the new batter will take strike, so no fuss about crossing. 
     
      
     
    If you fail to finish your overs in time, you will have to bring one extra Fielder inside the circle from the time it reaches cutoff as a live punishment. 
     
    Welsh fire actually suffered from this rule. 
     
      
     
    Everything else the same.

    Kick out Punam Raut. She completely derailed the momentum. No idea why Jemimah Rodrigues wasn’t selected.. pathetic selection

    sscomp32 reacted to zen in Your favorite cricketer   
    List your favorite (not necessarily who you think is the best) cricketer from the ones that you have watched (can be from any format), one retired and one current, in the following categories (avoid repetition) ... You could copy and paste the below and fill in the names: 
     
     
    Batsman
    Retired Current  
    Bowler
    Retired Current  
    WK
    Retired Current   
    AR
    Retired Current  
    Captain
    Retired Current   
     
    With my interest in cricket on a decline (following the game since a long time), I do not have any serious favorites, but will give it a shot: 
     
     
    Batsman
    Retired: Sehwag is the best bet for his high SR batting, Bradmanesque record against teams such as Pak, Ability to boss spin, and be a game changer. Sehwag's form gave Team Ind an edge. Even in ODIs, he was Ind's best batsman in the 2008-2011 period - Link Current: No real favorite but will go with Pujara as he is among the last breed of test focused batsman ... considering his performances in two back to back series in Aus which Ind won, probably the most impactful test batsman for Ind since 1990   
    Bowler
    Retired: Srinath ... I am used to Ind spinners from Raju, Joshi, Kumble to Ashwin, Jadeja & Axar create havoc on helpful pitches in Ind but when I saw Srinath, a genuine pace bowler, dismantle SA in a test at A'bad in 1996, I was a fan  Current: I have not watched a lot of him but will go with Wagner for his ability to bowl short pitched stuff and keep the never say die spirit. He is in the last leg of his career    
    WK
    Retired: Dhoni ... superb captain, batsman (at his peak) and WK  Current: Pant ... brilliant batsman and his keeping should improve   
    AR
    Retired: I have not watched Sobers so will go with Imran. Gave Pak two back to back titles in ODIs at major world events - 1989 Nehru Cup and 1992 WC. Drew a test series in WI in 1987-88, where he was the best bowler iirc. In WC 87 SF, it appeared as if he was taking Pak to victory before getting out trying to sweep ... Pak team appeared different under his captaincy  Current: Sir Don Pandya ... Potentially, the most talented cricketer from Ind in the 21st century   
    Captain
    Retired: Martin Crowe ... for brilliant performance both with the bat and as a captain in the 1992 WC. Was Man of the Series in it. Man of the series award was introduced in WC in 1992  Current: Captain Morgan ... for turning things around for Eng post 2015. Created a cultural change to device a new approach for Eng in LOIs (w/ failures being accepted) ... One of my articles on Eng: Link

    Reverse the bowling lineups of 2019 and 2015 and we would have won the 2015 undefeated with all 90 wickets.  We did take 70 out of 70 wickets in the first 7 matches.

    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.

    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 wins in SENA apart from against weak Aust in 2018.
    We won the Asia cup 2018 under Rohit and under Dhoni in 2016. Kohli captained us in 2014 version where we did not even reach the finals
     
    High time he needs to humble down a bit as he has no achievement yet as a captain. He looks totally disinterested in the press conference today with  dont care attitude.
