    Gaikwad v Shaw

    Both are good players in their way and may struggle if the ball moves around (like most Ind openers). Pros for Gaikwad v Shaw: better game sense better fielder (Shaw as a fielder would be in the lowest tier) can be more consistent when in form Pros for Shaw v Gaikwad: Better stroke player (but needs to be in his best form to be impactful) His good innings can be relatively more impactful for the team If Padikkal, who is closer to Gaikwad in the way he plays his cricket, is added to the discussion: Pros: Left hand
  2. Gaikwad strikes form ... more good news for CSK if he can continue in this fashion
  3. When Octopus got 1 prediction wrong, it made news. Here if Baba, gets it right, it’s news
  4. wkts fall in cricket, it is normal ... collapse is when a bunch of wkts fall in a short span. At Chennai, where batting gets difficult from overs 12-13, it can happen esp. if pushing for a big total
  5. Ppl are forgetting the below, how he came back through hard work, including having to rework his bowling action. Of course, teams will try not to put too much pressure on him:
  6. This is what SDP did in the last few series (highlights): IPL 2020 - the thread followed it. Avg 35, SR 179 Aus ODI series - best player for Ind. Most runs with 2 90s (despite batting in the lower middle order) Aus T20 series - Man of the series Eng T20 series - bowled a few brilliant spells Eng ODI series - 60 odd in the final ODI to help Ind clinch the series So when he is playing at his best, he has been the highest scorer and won Man of the series. When he has not played at his best, he has still won Ind games with both the bat & the
  7. On pitches such as Chennai, where it can get difficult to bat as the inning progresses, death over batting can be a hit or miss. On relatively better tracks, we will see some good batting!
  8. Livingstone gone due to bubble fatigue ... So Fizz (until Archer is available) will likely continue ...
  9. Even last yr, SDP played as a batsman ... there is no comparison as Rohit, who is rated highly by the OP, has been among the weaker performers for MI since 2017
  10. FTR, Rohit in IPL since 2017: 2017 Rohit - Avg 24, SR 122 2018 Rohit - Avg 24, SR 133 2019 Rohit - Avg 29, SR 129 2020 Rohit - Avg 28, SR 128 Among the weaker performers ...
  11. SDP v Rohit in IPL 2017 SDP - Avg 36, SR 156; + 6 wkts Rohit - Avg 24, SR 122 2018 SDP - Avg 29, SR 133; + 18 wkts Rohit - Avg 24, SR 133 2019 SDP - Avg 45, SR 191; + 14 wkts Rohit - Avg 29, SR 129 2020 SDP - Avg 35, SR 179; did not bowl due to injury Rohit - Avg 28, SR 128 Easily out performed Rohit but here we have such threads
  12. Because SDP is a relatively new player who has only played a handful of tests, and only one in Ind
  13. At C'nai, it can be hit or miss for the middle order batsmen ... would not read much into it
  14. MI is full of MPVs ... Selected players from the current ones Player - best season(s) Top order QdK - 2020, 2019 Kishan - 2020 SKY - 2020, 2019, 2018 Middle order SDP (Hardik) - 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 Pollard - 2020, 2019 , 2017 Bowling Boult Bumrah R Chahar PS in terms of consistent impact -> SKY, SDP & Pollard, along with the bowlers
