  1. It's fine to lose a few meaningless ODI series. I feel we understood a lot more about players other than the usual 3 in this series. Clinically polishing off opponents in these ODIs leaves us with the same unanswered questions. The MO is looking a lot more solid with Iyer, KL, Manish and Jadeja. The bowling has taken a few backward strides. But I'm hoping they will come back strong in the Tests.
  2. He has actually made changes to his stance and trigger movement. He is slightly opened up and stays till before the delivery. Great to see.
  3. Yeah, I did not get why he was trying to bounce that #10 bat. To top it some strange field setting, he nailed a perfect yorker a few balls later with no fineleg in place. I have seen this before - the fielding is sloppy, bowling gets sloppy and lazy on these small NZ grounds during LOIs. Probabay coz everyone expects it to be a batting shootout.
  4. Man the Pak U19 poyz seemed like midgets! Whats up with that? Atleast the short Indian bats like Pant and Shaw pack a real wallop when they go afetr the bowling. Those Pak kids looked useless even at the U19 level
  5. I'll wait to see how Bumrah goes in the Test series before jumping to conclusion. Something about LOI's on thes sall grounds that muddles the best of the bowlers!
  6. Its meaningless ODI. Take a chill pill. How are the U19 poyz faring after the thrashing? Amir Khan turned out to be a trundler :D
  7. Thakur can;t bowl a yorker to save his life!
  8. Not even close. Women don't want to do him, boys don't want to be him. Zero marketability. He will always be a Kohli wannabe!
  9. Looks like the seam position is great on his outswingers (Tyagi). We might have gem in the making on our hands!
  10. Yeah the knee is not braced 100% during delivery...I guess that's why his pace is a bit up and down. But a lovely action - pivot, delivery stride and use of the non-bowling arms. Haven't had the chance to see his wrist and seam position yet (but going by UP's track record,I would assume it's alright). The action seems very repeatable and stress-free. Don't think he has an hyper extension.
  11. He had a great last ver. But I donlt see the same flight he was famous for before his lean phase. Bowls with a much flatter trajectory. Still has a good googly though. Makes him a much lesser threat, I think.
  12. Is it? I just switched on. Seems foolish to carry on playing. He still is hitting 140 kph at times. So I doubt it has hampered him much.
  13. Saini seems to have figured out how to nail those perfect yorkers. Excellent really, you can see that he is holding back on pace to get the length right.
  14. I believe he is best suited for Test cricket. His game against short pitched bowling is not upto the standard demanded by the shorter formats. He can cover this weakness to an extent in test cricket since run rate isn't an issue. I believe we have a superior option in Gill for the #4 / #5 spot if Iyer does not click.
