    rtmohanlal got a reaction from zen in First 5-fer for Pandya   
    Pandya stroking his way to a 50+ not out at run a ball there by fetching far more success. Hope he continues in the same vein moving forward because for him attack is the best form of defense in batting.

    rtmohanlal got a reaction from saik in India's Greatest ODI cricketer   
    My list
    1. Kapil Dev - near ATG  ODI bowler..... had an avg: of 25.59 till  15 Dec 91 after bowling almost 9000(convincingly larger than other bowlers of his time) balls. Kapil's peak 106 inns  stretch is from 21 Dec 1980 to 19 Oct 1988. Here he avg:ed 29.84 @106.95 str( Botham played only106 inns). So he was a very good  batsman too.Add his captaincy & fielding , he is by far the best
     
     
    2. Dhoni - great ODI batsman & finisher, great WK & a great captain
     
    3.  Sachin - great ODI batsman. a good utility bowler & a safe  all round fielder  
     
    4. Kohli - great ODI batsman & finisher

    rtmohanlal got a reaction from Rightarmfast in People who have seen Ian Botham, How does Stokes stand in comparison to him ?   
    an ODI bowl avg: of  almost 42 with an econ:  of 6+  is far from being even modest. Even Sachin  averages 44 with far more longevity. So yes,,,,,, he is more of a good batsman    who can bowl a bit in ODIs That takes away his claim as a genuine all rounder..

    as an all rounder? No..... Stokes just does not fall as a complete all rounder in my book.He averages almost 42 as a bowler in ODIs. He is more of  a batsman with several clutch  performances in both formats and a good  support bowler in tests .That's all.
     
    Have followed Botham a bit in the 2nd half of his career. Him any day over Stokes as a complete all rounder. Some one who averages  just 42 in ODI bowling can't be an all rounder. Simple.

    i think Hussey is spot on ... the WK captain who  finished off a WORLD CUP FINAL  in front of the 'home crowd of a nation  with the most number of game fans worth crores'  has to be the greatest.This facing a huge score board pressure  and scoring those runs so fastly.

    rtmohanlal got a reaction from Cricspin in Kapil the batsman   
    Kapil was capable of  altering his batting style according to the situation, not that he always did that.  I would pick a few inns of his where he played a bit more casually  as per the situation demanded.

     All these inns were played when India needed them the most. Especially notice  the last 4 inns, all of them in a single year space and in the toughest of conditions. Not that Kapil was capable of doing a Dravid like role, but still he could play defensively if needed.

    rtmohanlal got a reaction from Unstable Joe in Sachin's Test Career   
    I evaluate Sachin's career like  this, ie:  by the time other greats of the game    are about to turn 20 they would have polished  their talents in domestic and  then enter national team and then make a glorious   ATG career. Sachin due to his phenomenal talent,  entered the national team by 16 y 212 d itself  and polished his  talent in national team  and by the time he  was about to make 20, started making a phenomenal career that outweighed that of every other ATG so convincingly as seen below.

    13607 runs @59.41 with 47 100s,  home avg: 57.33, abr: avg: 61.48 & lowest avg: in any country  44.66  abr: 100s:25
    the above stats still is convincingly better to that of every  other ATG.

    rtmohanlal got a reaction from Stan AF in Sachin's Test Career   
    then just take it as a context of longevity.  Take Kohli's alarming fall of average in NZL  from  71.33 to  36( reduced by 50%)  in a single series as a testimony . Kohli couldn't maintain his average even in his  age of 31.That is how difficult it is to maintain averages.Sachin degraded only after 38 years due to slowing reflexes courtesy aging.  That is what longevity can do to  a batsman's career in general.

    would take months to get over this disappointment of NZL... not because we lost 0-2 but because of the way we lost... even after getting a golden  oppertunity to bowl at NZL in the final inns , that  too by neutralizing a paltry 242  of 1st inns so effectively, we let it slip by batting sooo poorly in the 3rd inns. These bunch  should go and tie the shoelaces of Srilankan players who won a series in SAF by thrashing them as emphatically as it could be.
