    8 innings, 5 50s, avg 52, SR 100+. How was this guy not in our WC squad? What a * up by MSK . Even had he not fired, it would have been a valuable experience for 2023 !!!!

    ExtremeBrainfade reacted to SK_IH in Is Rishabh Pant the Afridi of Indian team ?   
    Firstly I would say he is the darling of the forum. People will come up with an excuse every innings. It was this, it was that blah blah.
    Sanju Manju made a good point about Pant's batting tonight, for a hitter of the ball he mishits lots of balls. I think the fundamental issue here is the batting slot. The kind of player he is, I think he will excel when the field is up where his mishits can give him runs especially with his leg side dominated game, his record in tests is testament to that fact wherein he gets enough gaps. 
    No injustice has been done with Pant in LOIs, infact his abilities have been overestimated. Even this series so far he has been promoted in lieu of Iyer, who has been badly treated after the productive last series. If Pant continuous in the middle order he would need to find a way. He has good intent but not backed by ability which has been criminally overrated. He needs to force the bowler to bowl to his strength.
     Injustice done to Pant has been in tests, where he was summarily dismissed without any cogent reasoning

    I could understand him being sidelined for Kulcha but to be sidelined for Sundar and Jadeja is nonsense.He has become a liability on the field that is biggest negative.

    https://www.innocenceproject.org/cases/darryl-hunt/
     
    In 1984, a guy named Daryl Hunt was convicted of raping and murdering a young woman.  He was thrown in prison but not sentenced to death.  In 1994 DNA evidence revealed that the perpetrator was some one else and Hunt was innocent.  In 2004, Hunt was released from prison and did some public events.  Hearing him speak provided great perspective.  In 2016, he committed suicide.  
     
    Many many such cases.  While the emotion is understandable, putting someone to death - the absolute permanence of it - when there is even a 1% chance that they did not commit the crime is why I oppose the death penalty.  
     
    If Hunt had been swiftly put to death, an innocent man dies, the perpetrator is still roaming free, and the victim's soul has no peace.  
     
    Now, one may argue that it is okay if Hunt was put to death just to deter other rapists and murderers.  I simply cannot accept the unnecessary death of even one innocent person.

    A cricketing fantasy for me is that India bats first on a patta wkt, and KLR and RGS both stay all 20 overs.  300 total from 120 balls.

    You are absolutely correct.  But we are talking about two separate issues here, and the system is broken on both sides.  The problem of true criminals getting away with their crimes cannot be solved by simply hunting down suspected, but not properly convicted, individuals.

    In the US of A, 100s of innocents were put to death or are languishing in jail or have died in jail after being thrown there by a racist system.  Thanks to the work of groups like the Innocence project, some of them are exonerated.  Here is one such story

    They were convicted in 1931, died in prison and exonerated in 2013 posthumously.  
     
    There is an entire database here:

    Yes,  Every one of these bothers me to no end. 
     
    No one is supporting the actual criminals.  But what if suspected criminals are not the actual criminals and the actual perpetrators are roaming free?  Justice must be swift and true, but it must also be meted out to the actual criminal.  Until we get all of this right (both what you are saying and what I am saying), we will not be a true civil society.

    Improved technology and easily available information have killed the romanticism in every area.
     
    Earlier, every pacer from the WI used to bowl every ball at 160 kph + ... and used to run in from the boundary line ... and the keeper used to stand near the boundary at the other end  ... and smoke and fire used to come out of their noses when they ran in ... and all were 8 feet tall.

    And for these reasons, I am against the death penalty.  Many innocents have rotted in jail or been put to death because of wrongful convictions, only for new evidence to emerge years or decades later that proves their innocence.  
     
    The principle of "Innocent until proven guilty" is the  foundation of a civil society.  Without this, we are all fair game to be accused, convicted and punished with no recourse.
