  1. Wow, seeing such support for a player after a long time ... Great comeback -> Sir Don Pandya
  2. Will keep Dhoni at 1st as he has been the nucleus of CSK (and also gets some goodwill points for being the captain of 2007 T20 and 2011 ODI World Cup winning teams) 2nd Sir Don Pandya ... exceptional captaincy esp. for a first time captain for a franchise in its first season (did similar to what Warne did for RR but as a greenhorn) 3rd Gautam Gambhir ... joined an established franchise and helped it win in his year 2 4th Rohit ... Has won the most titles but helped by the MI set up SDP
  3. https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/ipl-2022-can-rohit-sharma-the-india-t20i-batter-turn-up-for-mumbai-indians-please-1310437 Now he is Ind captain so definitely needs to step up or Ind could be playing with 10 players (depending on the rest of the 11) in the T20 WC in Aus
  4. After Q1, the two best teams of the tournament meet again in the final at the Wolf's Den (The NaMo Stadium). The Wolves would be eager to get their hands on the title in their debut season, while the Wild Wild West too would be seeking to give their best in their 2nd appearance in the final in 15 years. Of course, the atmosphere at Amdavad is expected to electric! v The Wolves arrived to a heroes welcome at Amdavad, but besides the Wolves other heroes have made it to Amdavad as well: Amit Shah is expected to be at the final! There will be a closing ceremony as well featuring: Amir Khan is going to host the pre show: The animal kingdom is excited to see the Wolves play the final at the Wolf's Den too: As usual for the Wolves game, beer is on the house: Get ready to "aa woo": Cricinfo Preview ... Poll added for poll lovers ... Poll closes before the toss! @Austin 3:!6 Buddy, sticky the thread
  5. I've excluded the following cases: 1) No spinners, even if they've bowled in the death overs. 2) When a pacer is bowling to tailenders (i.e., pure bowlers are batting on the crease). 3) When a pacer is bowling in less than 15 overs (in cases where the chasing team has easily chased the target within 15-16 overs). Here's the Google spreadsheet link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LPZXRA00fx1xa-0bZueV51XvXhhAl2uw5OYp1zWdcjY/edit?usp=sharing I'll keep updating the sheets as the tournament progresses.
  6. Q1 May 24 GT v RR Kol E May 25 LSG v RCB Kol Q2 May 27 AMD F May 29 AMD Poll added which closes on May 27th before the toss of Q2 Go ahead and stake your claim ... troll other teams (within limits) ... Get the die hard fan in you out!!
  7. All 10 teams have played 1 game each, therefore, here is the first impression (as the tourney, a 2-month event, progresses, team dynamics may change). I am NOT looking into which team has what kind of "holes" but the ability to win with some combination of batting, bowling, & fielding. In alphabetical order in respective groups: Tier 1 DC (Group A) A batting dominant side. Great top 5 at full strength - Warner, Shaw, M Marsh, Pant, & Powell. Supported by Thakur & Axar Some impactful bowlers such as Nortje & Kuldeep. Fizz, if in form and played in the 11 PK (Group B) Similar to DC, i.e. a batting dominant side with Agarwal, Dhawan, SRK, Livingston, Rajapakse, & Bairstow A top drawer bowler in Rabada, supported by R Chahar & Arshdeep RCB (Group B) As has been the tradition at RCB, a good batting unit with Faf, Maxwell, Kohli (anchor), & DK, supported by some talented Indian batsmen Bowling: One of the better bowling sides with Hazlewood, Siraj, Harshal, & Hasaranga RR (Group A) A strong top 5 A top 3 bowling attack Tier 2 CSK (Group B) Good batting esp. if many of the "has been" show up Without D Chahar, the bowling needs to step up KKR (Group A) Batting is a mixed bag Bowling a mixed bag too MI (Group A) Batting too reliant on Indian batsmen esp. the form of SKY Bowling reliant on the unreliable Bumrah SRH (Group B) At this point, over reliant on KW for stability. Need to see who strikes form in the tournament Bowling has some interesting pace bowlers like Umran but lacks game changing spin combinations Dark Horses GT (Group B) Batting is packed with big hitters so it could be a team where a bunch of them are scoring quick 20-30-40. The team will also have days where a couple of big hitters have a great day A top 3 bowling attack which can further be strengthened by utilizing bowlers in form LSG (Group A) Strong batting esp. when Stoinis & Holder return Bowling is a mixed bag and will have to work as a group Let's see if the teams live up to expectations or surprise us by improving themselves as the tournament progresses!
  8. It appears as if most are not aware of "groups" (or their details) so let's quickly address that (for information only, not to discuss its pros/cons): Group A - MI, KKR, RR, DC, & LSG Group B - CSK, SRH, RCB, PK, & GT Teams play: 2 games versus teams in the same group 1 game versus 4 teams in the other group 2 games versus the team in its parallel position in the other group so MI-CSK, KKR-SRH, and so on play 2 games against each other Back to the topic - playoff race is heating up where 4 teams at the top of the table irrespective of group advance. Most likely 2 teams from each group will head to the playoffs. 3 teams from one group can go in cases where teams competing for a spot in the other group eat into each others' points, and the 3rd team has similar wins (as those teams in the other group) with a better NRR. Group A RR -> 6 wins with 6 games to go LSG -> 5 wins with 6 games to go DC -> 4 wins with 6 games to go Group B GT -> 7 wins with 6 games to go SRH -> 5 wins with 6 games to go RCB -> 5 wins with 5 games to go PK -> 4 wins with 6 games to go Potential spoilsport teams: CSK, KKR, & MI (CSK & KKR may need to win all of their remaining games for a mathematical chance to qualify): At this point (not accounting for extremely dramatic situations), 5 teams are competing for 2 spots, targeting 8 or more wins (not considering NRR at the moment): Win 3/6 games - LSG & SRH (if they lose 4 games, they could become vulnerable) Win 3/5 games - RCB Win 4/6 games - DC & PK Games among these 5 teams: LSG v PK DC v LSG DC v SRH RCB v SRH PK v RCB DC v PK PK v SRH In the above games: LSG plays 2 of its 6 remaining games RCB plays 2 of its 5 remaining games DC, PK, & SRH play 3 of their remaining 6 games If the qualification for the last spot is to hinge on the final group game (which tends to happen in IPL), then the final game is PK v SRH so either it could be that the winner would advance or one of the teams may need to win it to advance, while the other would be in a nothing to lose position or even qualified (and there could be a 3rd team waiting for the team that needs to win to lose so it could advance).
  9. IPL 2022 Group Games Awards Best bowling side -> GT (Shami, Lockie, Joseph, Dayal, who has made his presence felt in this all star bowling unit, & Rashid, along w/ SDP (Hardik). Bench includes AFG's Noor Ahmed) Best batting side -> CSK (on good batting pitches, the team has scored many 200+ totals) Best fielding side -> ? Best all-round side -> LSG (The team has lots of option that at times it may feel as if it is playing with more than 11 players) Most entertaining side -> GT (lots of blockbuster games including many with last ball finishes) Most disappointing/lack-lustre side -> MI (0-8 is difficult to beat) Most entertaining batsman -> Jos Buttler Most entertaining finisher -> DK Most entertaining pace bowler -> Umran Malik (though has gone for tons of runs without picking up wickets lately) Most entertaining spin bowler -> Yuzi Chahal Most entertaining fielder -> ? Best captain -> Sir Don Pandya (SDP) Best batting inning -> Tewatia versus PK where he hit 2 6s off 2 balls having played only 1 ball before that (to beat this someone would need to just walk in and hit 3 6s in a row) Best bowling spell -> Yuzi versus KKR (the hattrick over that turned the game) Best fielding contribution in a game -> ? (There is Buttler who has taken some good catches, there is Shahbaz who got a direct hit & got a good catch, ...)
  10. Currently, these two are only batsmen to have hit 100s in this IPL, and, therefore, not surprisingly the top 2 run getters in the IPL after 7-8 games. How these two have scored runs contrasts the difference in mindset b/w the best overseas T20 batsman and the best Indian T20 batsman. Let's look at these two in relatively more detail: SR Buttler 162 KL 147 SR depends upon a variety of factors but since both of these players are openers, the comparison is easier ... Buttler has demonstrated intent including showing the inclination to take on attacks and key bowlers Avg Buttler 82 KL 61 Avg*SR Buttler 13,284 (+48%) KL 8,967 Runs against strong teams Buttler hit a 100 versus SRH and scored a swashbuckling knock against GT. Against DC, Buttler was attempting to take on Khaleel who was bowling well in that game. Buttler has a 100 against a lowly MI attack KL got 1st ball duck against RR & GT, while scoring 2 100s against a lowly MI attack (reminds me of getting nothing against Pak & NZ in the recent WC, while stats padding against the filler sides). Against SRH he did score a 68. Against DC, he made a less than run a ball 24-25 (In T20WC, strong teams are usually not going to allow him to settle down, make up his SR, and score 100s, which unfortunately has been the modus operandi of Ind's top order #1-3 batsmen) In Avg*SR, Buttler is far ahead ... However ignoring this, which batsman do you think is performing better? Who will be more impactful for his team?
  11. Can't keep him out of the game . ... Feel free to post all his on field "reactions" here
  12. https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/indian-premier-league-2022-1298423/royal-challengers-bangalore-vs-rajasthan-royals-39th-match-1304085/match-preview RCB's out-of-touch batting looks to fire against RR's competent bowling in Royal battle Royal Challengers may look to replace Anuj Rawat in bid to firm up misfiring top order against Yuzvendra Chahal and co Likely XIs Rawat's string of low scores could force a change for Royal Challengers. There are two ways of altering the balance. If they can open with Suyash Prabhudessai, it gives them the luxury of playing an extra bowling option. Else, Rajat Patidar or Mahipal Lomror could come in to replace Rawat. Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1 Faf du Plessis (capt), 2 Anuj Rawat/Rajat Patidar, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Glenn Maxwell, 5 Shahbaz Ahmed, 6 Suyash Prabhudessai, 7 Dinesh Karthik (wk), 8 Wanindu Hasaranga, 9 Harshal Patel, 10 Mohammed Siraj, 11 Josh Hazlewood Meanwhile, Royals have no reason to change their XI, unless there are last-moment injury concerns. Rajasthan Royals: 1 Jos Buttler, 2 Devdutt Padikkal, 3 Sanju Samson (capt, wk), 4 Shimron Hetmyer, 5 Karun Nair, 6 Riyan Parag, 7 R Ashwin, 8 Obed McCoy, 9 Trent Boult, 10 Prasidh Krishna, 11 Yuzvendra Chahal Strategy Punt Karthik has been strategically used by Royal Challengers as a finisher whenever the top order has fired. But his record against Chahal has been ordinary: the legspinner has dismissed him thrice in nine innings, with Karthik scoring at a strike rate of only 83. This isn't to say Karthik that can't take down Chahal, but on current form, it could make for a compelling contest if Chahal is held back for at least an over at the death against a man who is still trying to present a case to be India's finisher at the T20 World Cup later in the year. Wanindu Hasaranga's match-up against Sanju Samson is hard to ignore. The googly bowler - yes, that is his stock ball - has dismissed Samson four times in five innings in a span of 15 deliveries. It is a no-brainer, really, for du Plessis to bring him on as soon as the Royals captain comes in to bat. Let the mind games begin, again. Stats that matter Since IPL 2018, du Plessis' teams have won 70% of matches where he has made 30 or more. The corresponding number for Samson is 83%. The ball travels at the MCA Stadium in Pune. An average of 17.2 sixes have been hit per match this season, the highest among all four venues. Hetmyer's 166 runs are the most between overs 16-20 this IPL. Karthik is second with 153 runs. So in many ways, this will be a contest between two of the best finishers this season.
  13. Mega auction is scheduled to be held on 12-13 Feb. Below is how the teams are placed in terms of budget: PK - 72 cr SRH - 68 cr RR - 62 cr L'now - 60 cr RCB - 57 cr A'bad - 53 cr CSK - 48 cr KKR 48 cr MI 48 cr DC - 47.5 cr Players retained/drafted: A'bad: Hardik Pandya, Rashid Khan, Shubham Gill CSK: Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali, Ruturaj Gaikwad DC: Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Prithvi Shaw, Anrich Nortje KKR: Andre Russell, Varun Chakravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer, Sunil Narine L'now: KL Rahul, Marcus Stoinis, Ravi Bishnoi MI: Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard PK: Mayank Agarwal, Arshdeep Singh RCB: Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Mohammed Siraj RR: Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal SRH: Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, Umran Malik Which players are likely to be targeted by the franchises? Any predictions?
  14. Hi, I'm ready with the record of bowlers in IPL 2022 during the different phases of the game: Power Play Overs (1-6), Middle Overs (7-15) and Death Overs (16-20). https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LPZXRA00fx1xa-0bZueV51XvXhhAl2uw5OYp1zWdcjY/edit?usp=sharing Here is my methodology for arriving at the desired PP bowlers: 1) Compile a list of all bowlers who bowled in the PP overs. 2) Filter these bowlers to Indian bowlers. 3) Filter Indian bowlers to Indian pacers. 4) Filter Indian pacers to those pacers who have bowled 2 or more than 2 overs per match in this phase. Since every team has played 5 matches, so I filtered all Indian pacers who have bowled 10 or more than 10 overs so far. 5) Finally, sort them on Strike Rate because I'm interested in wicket-taking PP bowlers. Here's what I see:
  15. MI may be tottering this season but they’ve been shrewdly building a clutch core of high pedigree youngsters who will help them dominate for the next few seasons - Brevis - Tilak - David - Thampi (has improved a lot this season) - Kishan - Archer (will likely be available from next season) - Bumrah they just have to pick up a quality leg spinner in the upcoming auction and 2-3 good overseas players (Stokes, Starc, Cam Green, Sam Curran, etc)
  16. Of the 14 IPLs hitherto, CSK and MI have won 9 (64%). From 2022 onwards, IPL will move in a different direction with the addition of two more teams. The Mega Auction (Thread - Link) promises to change the dynamics to ponder over the question - Will CSK and MI remain dominant in the new IPL? To help us to answer this question (not from a fan's perspective), let's look at where the two teams stand: CSK -> Retained: Dhoni, Jadeja, Moeen, & Gaikwad. MI -> Retained: Rohit, Bumrah, SKY, & Pollard. Many of the core group players are expected to be taken up by other franchises. However, the auction is also an opportunity to start fresh and build upon strengths (a difficult task to reach previous high/level) For these two, the auction budget is limited to 48 cr with both teams retaining 4 players (If you have the opportunity to retain 4 players from your squad, a team would do that. However, the choice of retentions can be questioned). Challenges CSK Should Dhoni have signed up as a mentor (rather than the captain)? MSD of 2022 is a different player. CSK has parked 12 cr on him. With Dhoni, there has been a trend where he leaves a role when people ask "Why not" versus "Why". Dhoni is a lucky player and his luck may have provided him with an opportunity to go out on a high in 2021 where he led CSK to its 4th IPL title. There are two sides of a coin, therefore, the other side may have pushed Dhoni to continue in the wrong direction where his bad luck takes over, making people ask why did he continue (when he could have been perfect as the mentor). CSK needs to rebuild its core, which is easier said than done. MI Needs to rebuild its core. MI is backed by a big business group that has made MI work like a well oiled apparatus. However, since it is building a new team, too many cooks can spoil the broth. Opportunities CSK. Dhoni has done it in the past, and can do it again. MI. A chance to see the merits of its well oiled apparatus. Considering various facets, will CSK and MI remain dominant in the new IPL?
  17. Below is my analysis of all teams- @Austin 3:!6, @Malcolm Merlyn, @Trichromatic, I think this belongs to IPL forum.
  18. I do not know much about Apsa 80, including its effect on environmental and health, but it appears as if the impact of dew at venues in Mumbai could be reduced moving forward.
  19. African batsman Dewald Brevis is seen sitting on the ground. He says in front of the camera- 'I have never been in this kind of weather...
