  1. Rahane ended his 82 test career with less than 5k runs and avg less than 40. M E D I O C R E .
  2. Only Rabada is a genuine threat. See him off as he is capable of taking wickets in bunches. Jansen and Ngidi are good but can be managed. Oliver is garbage.
  3. Interesting. Axar will get all the opportunities at home and in SL/BD. So 200 for him is sureshot. Siraj has got around 33 wkts in 10 tests but he will have a long career for sure..atleast 60-70 tests so he will most probably reach it also. Thakur is iffy...he will only play overseas in SENA and he will not pick buckets of wickets because there will be there other strike bowlers ahead of him.
  4. Joberg will be spitting mamba..no doubt about it. Lets pack the team with 7 batsman and 4 genuine quick bowlers. Rahul Mayank Trimurti Joker 1 Trimurti Joker 2 Trimurti Joker 3 Vihari Pant Yadav Shami Bumrah Siraj
  5. In an Ideal world, love to have these great bowlers finishing their careers at: Ishant: 350 Wkts Shami: 300 Wkts Umesh: 200 Wkts Bumrah: 300 Wkts Ashwin: 500Wkts Jadeja: 300 Wkts
  6. I believe 135 is a cut off speed for International fast bowlers. Anything less that that and the bowler become condition specific. - Philander was mediocre outside green mambas. - Pollock was 150 to begin with and ended at around 132. On an average he was around 135 which was good enough. - Asif was a magician because he made the ball talk at 135 and not 130. - Kyle Jamison was menacing at 135 in NZ but harmless at 130 in India ( esp second test) - Mohammad Abbas started with bang in test cricket bowling at around 133-35 but as soon as he become a trundler at 125, he
  7. Dream year for Rizwan...maybe his peak...his downfall will be pretty quick too... He is 30 so can't keep this consistency for long.
  8. Chetan Sharma- The Cuurent Selector- was king of Trundlers in his time so he has no idea how valuable 150k pace is! Umran Malik under Kohli will be Gold going by Kohli love for raw pace and aggression!!
  9. Rohit misses SA Tests. Kohli misses SA ODIs Very convenient from both of them. Tough time ahead for Indian cricket.
  10. Ruturaj Gaikwad is in red hot form. Should be tried against series vs SL.
  11. Probable XI...quite solid. India can be roasted on spicer pitches. Elgar Markaram Van dussan Bavuma Verryene Decock Mulder Maharaj Rabada Oliver Norje
  12. Saini never impressed in his brief International career except for his debut T20 series vs WI where he bowled thunderbolts at 150 and got everybody excited. Hope he gets his mojo back.
  13. Saini@150 is an asset. He must maintain that to warrant a place in Indian XI. Since he is a spray gun, even 140 will be cannon fodder for international batsman.
  14. Saurabh kumar - India A spin bowler. Nice dip and loop. Seems talented. Can he bat ??
  15. Jayant picked a cheap 4-fer but he should be no way near the team. Washington Sundar is young and a superior upgrade.
  16. Dominik Cork would have been thinking alongside him in the commentary what the hell is the old man blabbering. Sunny G humour is cringe and he takes himself too seriously. But in the reality 99% of his analysis is garbage.
  17. Lalit Yadav from Delhi / DC is also a prospect. Bowls fast off spinners and a big hitter. More of an allrounder though.
  18. Bad day for Ind-A as SA-A racked 330/3 on Day 1. Spinners looked listless and pace bowlers average. Must be an ultra flat pitch.
  19. This should be end of Kohli lean spell. Kohli will crack around 5 centuries in by the end of Indian home season. My prediction.
  20. He was bowling rockets 150 in T20s in WI. I remember he cleaned up Hetymer and Pooran with sheer pace. But then the decline begin with injuries and he was reduced to around 140ish bowler with no seam and swing which is cannon fodder for International bowlers. His time came and gone too quickly.
  21. If we talk about future then I believe we are covered in leg spin and left arm spin. Axar will cover in for Jadeja- All good for 5 years atleast Yuzi, Kuldeep, Bishnoi, Chahar will share duties for leg spin - good for 5-7 years Off spin is a problem though- zilch after Ashwin. Its a dying art anyways.
  22. Needs to be given full season by CSK before making any final judgement. Thala have this obsession for sticking with oldies.
  23. Looks promising. But guess IPL is the first benchmark for these kids. So can't judge unless thrown into IPL.
  24. Karnatka has produced Shreyas Gopal, M Ashwin & Kariappa. But despite getting game time in IPL, they couldn't graduate to next level.
  25. Yes, Off spin is dead in India. Ashwin will play for 2-3 more years though. Gowtham has regressed and Jalal Saxena is too old now. Washington is a darter. Also, IPL doesn't reward the off spinners. Most of the team prefer left arm spin or leg spin.
