    nevada reacted to Straight Drive in Clive Lloyd-75th birthday today tribute-Where did he rank amongst the great batsmen and cricketers?   
    Kalicharran was good to watch. He had quick footwork and quick reflexes. That knock against Lillee is very famous. Very good against spin too. Played some wonderful knocks against India when they toured here. Had a good series.

    One reason could be that the threat of covid is still hovering around us.

    nevada reacted to maniac in Who is one current Indian cricketer that you want to see have a very successful career by the time he retires?   
    Shubman Gill. At this rate I just want him to play  at least more games than MSK prasad, Vijay Bharadwaj, Devang Gandhi etc.

    Very similar players , both small left handers ,  liked pulling and cutting but Alvin K was a much better all round batsman .

    Chahal has spoiled the legacy of Gupte, Chandra, Kumble. 
     
    Shame that Indian cricket has to wait for so long for a quality leg spinner, especially in this era.

    Come on. He has hardly played any games against the top teams and looked pretty ordinary in the last world cup. He's great no doubt about that, but until he racks up a few good (not necessarily match winning) performances against the established teams, he'll not come into the fray. 
     
    Champa Rani is owning the world champs at their home.

    True in almost every sport. 
     
    Hockey we won the last junior (U-21) WC, before that in 2001. Senior team can't even make it to SF of WCs and Olympics, forget winning. Last time we progressed to SF/beyond was 1980 Moscow which saw large scale boycott.  
     
    Tennis we have produced junior GS champs, progress beyond that? The players who Yuki used to beat in 2000s now go deep in majors while he hardly ever qualifies. 
     
    Better in junior football, seniors struggle against Maldives, Bangladesh and lose to Guam (1.4 lakhs population). 
     
    Junior squash vs seniors, same with athletics, swimming, boxing, shooting, archery
     
    Chess, we have so many junior world champs yet our #1 player is a 51 year old who has held that spot for the last 35 years. His peers have retired as have those a decade younger, yet we expect him to compete against elite players who weren't born when he won his 1st world title. 
     
    Clearly not just limited to cricket, our boys and girls peak early but have low ceiling. And this has been going on for at least 20 years, reasons uh we can always speculate but IMO this is a worrying trend and demands extensive study/analysis which we know will never happen in this country.

    Always rated Zampa, maybe cos he shines against us. No hopes from Chahal but Kuly can be world class, our spinners let us down big time in 2019 WC.

    his numbers dont suggest that but he has a knack of getting top batsman of opposite side 
     
    Kohli - 5 times
    Rohit - 4 times 
    williamson-guptill twice in 4-5 games 
     
    even this series

    Actually this is foundation of their Odi approach. Yesterday, Archer came in at 11 & he is a capable batsman. Such a luxury to have & distant dreams for teams like India.

    Also have to credit Rashid & Curran for their 9th wicket partnership of 76 runs. Australia lost the plot there.

    Excellent comeback. I thought they would lose but they won. Woakes, Archer and Curran

    Nasser Hussain loves the sight of Eng smashing the Aussies, you can hear it in his voice.  English cricketers of his era have endured copious amounts of pain & humiliation against Australia, this must be gratifying for them.

    The question arises whether Woakes has changed the game with defensive bowling or agressive bowling.

    Unbelievable captaincy from Morgan, bowled out his frontline seamers to get back into the game. Now, onto the support cast to finish the job

    England have done really well to recover from 140 odd for 8. 70+ run partnership for the 9th wicket.
     
    Certainly have useful batting depth. We would have been all oout for 160-170.
