  1. IPL arrived in the final stages of Sachin's career, but we saw Sachin play at a reasonably high level. He won the orange cap in 2010, which was probably his last 'good' year in international cricket. MI lost the final to CSK in DY Patil stadium, but sachin was toying with the bowlers all season, and looked very comfortable in this 'newer', evolved format of cricket. 2010 MI with sachin, rayudu, harbhajan singh, zaheer khan, malinga, and pollard looked unstoppable. I'm still wondering how they lost that final, they were easily the best team in the country that season. MI looked like winning the final as long as sachin was there, he got out for 40-odd, if i remember correctly. That is probably the most exciting team MI has ever had. Do you remember this team, @Mariyam ? the following IPL, in 2011, Sachin scored a hundred against Kochi tuskers kerala but didn't look anywhere near as effective as he did in 2010. MI lost to CSK in the eliminator. In the next 2 seasons, Sachin's stats declined massively- and in his late-30s, he was clearly on the brink of retirment. Knowing this, we can ask ourselves: how good would a peak Sachin tendulkar have been in IPL? Would he be as dominant as 2016 kohli - scoring 900+ runs and 4 hundreds - or could he hit 1000? Would he have scored 175 like Gayle? I think the closest we came to seeing sachin play IPL in his prime was in that 'max' tournament in new zealand, back in 2002. He scored 72 off 27 balls. What's funny - and maybe a little bit sad - is that future generations will probably think that this was his greatest ever innings!!! LOL
  2. Of all the foreign cricketers to have played the IPL, who's the best? If we had to make a poll, here are the contenders: Chris Gayle: has the record for highest ever score of 175. Two time purple cap winner, singlehandedly carried RCB into the 2011 final. Most hundreds in IPL history (6). AB de Villiers: starred in the two highest ever partnerships in IPL history (229 and 215 with Virat Kohli). Many memorable innings for RCB, most notably a 79 not out chasing (from 31/5) in the 2016 qualifier. Sunil Narine: un-hittable since his first season in the IPL. Also became a pinch-hitting opener. Has the lowest economy rate in IPL history. Won 2 IPLs. David Warner: best opener in IPL history. Most runs ever by a foreign player, and most runs ever by a foreign player in a single season (848). A great captain as well, led his team to the title in 2016. Dwayne Bravo: possibly the best ever all-rounder in IPL history. Two time purple cap winner, one of them being the record for most wickets in a single season til date (32). Won 2 IPLs. Lasith Malinga: the best bowler in IPL history. Highest ever wicket taker. Won 4 IPLs. Gayle was the best entertainer, arguably the most memorable foreigner to have played in India. Loved by the crowds, created a lot of hype and interest in the IPL. I can't imagine anyone beating his highest ever score of 175. However, I cannot ignore Malinga's record. Most decorated player with 4 titles. Highest ever wicket taker in a batsman's game. Consistently good every season. The ideal IPL bowler; a deceptive action, possessing pace, yorker, and a good slower ball. Without him, MI wouldn't have played 5 finals. Malinga is the best foreign player in the history of the IPL. His overall record will be hard to beat.
  3. I have always wondered why RCB keeps ignoring good karnataka players. Karnataka has been one of the better domestic teams, so many good players coming from there...but how many were retained by RCB? It makes no sense. Kohli is a great batsman, but surely the franchise should include more locals, especially when they're better than many on the existing squad? It would be good for the fans as well, i'm sure they'd love seeing local players instead of mercenary types. Here's what a potential XI could have been: Kohli Rahul Mayank Nair De villiers Sundar Gowtham Gopal Morris Saini Steyn Unfortunately, we'll have kohli captaining RCB until he retires, we may never see such a lineup.
  4. In response to the all time foreign XI, there had to be an all time Indian XI. Much more difficult to choose, because we have more choices. But after thinking about this, i went with: Virat Kohli Gautam Gambhir Suresh Raina Rohit Sharma - captain Rishabh Pant MS Dhoni+ Hardik Pandya Harbhajan Singh Jasprit Bumrah Bhuvneshwar Kumar R. Ashwin A few unlucky misses like Amit mishra, who took lots of wickets on a crappy delhi daredevils team. But this is more or less, the best XI. Maybe its too early for Rishabh pant or pandya, but I couldn't imagine an all-time XI without them. Pant has been a monster in the IPL, a perfect number 5. Pandya obviously a great lower-order hitter. Difficult to match narine + malinga in economy, but Bhuvneshwar + ashwin isn't far away. The big difference is in the lack of firepower in the middle order. Dhoni and pant are big hitters, but AB/Watson/pollard/russell are in a different league. Does this team beat the foreign XI? what do you think
  5. The EEEEVIL LEFT WING is taking over the world, so let's come up with an all-time IPL left handed XI: 1. Hayden 2. Hussey 3. Warner 4. Raina 5. Pant 6. Yuvraj 7. Irfan 8. Jadeja 9. Starc 10. Kuldeep 11. mustafizur rahman
  6. I have always wondered which of these 2 had a bigger contribution to MI's success. MI is the IPL's most successful franchise, and these 2 have been permanent fixtures in MI lineups over the years. I voted malinga for IPL's greatest ever player, --> https://www.indiancricketfans.com/forums/topic/118563-ipls-greatest-foreign-player/ because he's IPL's leading wicket-taker. But pollard's all-round ability gave the team a balance that many other lineups didn't have. Is he underrated? So the question is: even if malinga was the better player, was pollard more valuable?
  7. In a historic move, the all-powerful governing authority of Australian cricket, Cricket Australia, also known as Cricket Australia Corporation Ptc. Plc. LLc, has decided to ban the use of the controversial 'n-word' from its offices, facilities and stadiums. Cricket Australia announced the now-historic change with the following statement: The announcement would be followed by Cricket Australia announcing reparations for "all Australian cricketers of color" as "a gesture of it's commitment to the war against racism": Wow!!!
  8. Source : Rediff,Big Sports Breakfast In a sensational interview, former Australia captain Michael Clarke claims that Australia players did not want to sledge Kohli because ‘I want him to pick me for Bangalore so I can make my USD 1 million for my six weeks' Australian cricketers were so keen to protect their lucrative deals in the Indian Premier League that they felt "scared" of sledging India captain Virat Kohli and his teammates during a particular period and instead "sucked up" to them, former skipper Michael Clarke has claimed. India and Australia have had some memorable bilateral duels, but Clarke felt that whenever the Australians would face India, their eyes would be trained on the cash-rich league. "Everybody knows how powerful India are in regards to the financial part of the game, internationally or domestically with the IPL," Clarke told Big Sports Breakfast. "I feel that Australian cricket, and probably every other team over a little period, went the opposite and actually sucked up to India. They were too scared to sledge Kohli or the other Indian players because they had to play with them in April," the World-Cup winning Australian skipper reckoned. Clarke believes that some of Australia's ruthless on-field character got compromised because the top-10 draws at the IPL auctions gave an impression that they would never sledge Kohli. "Name a list of ten players and they are bidding for these Australian players to get into their IPL team," he said. "The players were like: 'I'm not going to sledge Kohli, I want him to pick me for Bangalore so I can make my USD 1 million for my six weeks'. "I feel like that's where Australia went through that little phase where our cricket become a little bit softer or not as hard as we're accustomed to seeing," Clarke said about the time after the ball-tampering scandal when terms like "Elite honesty" were propagated. *************************************************************************************************************** Look at the balls on this idiot sucking up to every Indian Commentator.
  9. Could an all-time Indian IPL XI beat this collection of foreigners? Would be a great game. Best ever IPL foreigner XI: David Warner Chris Gayle AB de Villiers+ Shane Watson Jacques Kallis Kieron Pollard Dwayne Bravo Andre Russell Sunil Narine Rashid Khan Lasith Malinga Narrowly missing out: Brendon McCullum, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir, Albie Morkel, Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist, Jos Buttler. Malinga and narine would almost erase 8 of your 20 overs. If you play them out, you'll have to score 10+ off the others, which isn't that easy. If you attack them, they will get you out. Warner and gayle are probably the ideal opening combination. Warner attacks from ball 1, gayle takes his time to set. If one of them gets going. I'm not sure if there's ever been an indian bowler who could consistently dismiss these two batsmen. Then you have AB, watson, pollard, strike rate monsters. They'll walk in and kill your spinners and medium pacers from ball 1. This team will be hard to to beat.
  10. Gayle, Warner or Russell? Russell often gets overlooked, but his strike rate and 6 hitting ability is unparalleled. Could there be a case for AB de villiers? He's definitely played some of the most destructive innings in IPL history.
  11. What should be BCCI'S decision? I think they are keen on playing it in Sept-October Asia Cup is also to be held during the same time So if situation improves and improves drastically well,should the BCCI pull out of Asia cup and play IPL?SLC too has showed interest in hosting IPL.... Should IPL be given priority over international cricket?
  12. Hi guys, we will be playing the Fantasy League at the official IPL site this year. I considered other sites like Cricketweb but they were even more useless than this competition. There are a lot of changes this year with Dream 11 replacing Fandromeda for hosting the competition. With the change in hosting there are significant changes to the rules as well. There will no longer be a requirement to change teams before every match, instead subs/trading of players should be done for a group of 8 matches or so together. Some of the key things to note are: Matches are separated into rounds with each round having 8 matches in league stage and all Playoffs considered as one final round Subs/Trades of players should be done before the start of 1st match of each round and the trades will be applicable for all the 8 matches in league stage 5 Subs/Trades are allowed per round You have to select a Captain and Vice-Captain with the Captain earning Double points and Vice-Captain earning 1.5x points I will try to add some more pointers here, but please go through the full Rules and Points System in the website. Details of joining below: Website: fantasy.iplt20.com League code: SLE7SQXX01UF League name: ICF IPL 2019 FL Once team is created and you have joined, please post the team name here. Looking forward to see lots of you guys join, given especially that this time the competition wouldn’t require changes every match like previous years
