  1. Considering the 2022 (Aus) & 2024 (WI & USA) T20 WCs, which one (or two) among the new pace bowlers being tried out recently is the better bet and therefore should be given more opportunities? Below are pros & cons of each player: Arshdeep Pros: Yorker specialist and can move the ball as well Cons: A lack of consistent pace. Usually good for some specific role Avesh Pros: Can bowl at multiple stages. Can bowl 140+ relatively consistently Cons: Appears more like a support/backup bowler D Chahar Pros: Can swing the bowl. Can bat too. Cons: A power play specialist. Lacks consistent pace. Harshal Pros: Death overs specialist (esp. in conditions where the ball grips the pitch) Cons: A lack of pace. Limited utility. Moshin Pros: Multi stage bowler. Can bowl quick. Uses bounce well. Cons: None so far apart from needing more games to gain experience and improve himself further. Prashid Pros: Good at creating awkward bounce. Can bowl quick. Cons: Can have issues at the death. Umran Pros: Express. X-Factor. Cons: None so far apart from needing more games to gain experience and improve himself further. Apart from these, there are guys like Tyagi and Natarajan, who may not be considered yet (not in the pecking or have lost steam) or have fitness related issues.
  2. Pacey and improving steadily, brings loads of x-factor (and variety) as the 3rd pacer ... Ind has to learn to leverage on his pace (as such pace bowlers are rare in Indian cricket) rather than wait for him to develop even more as a bowler as by that time he may lose some of his pace ... At different stages of his career, a player would have different strengths ... Right now for Umran, it is pace. Later on, it could be something else ... Good teams know how to utilize a player's current strengths (and not frame a player permanently based on his previous strengths or weaknesses) and keep upcoming bowlers in good rhythm ... Needs to be played in all games to prep him for the upcoming world cup
  3. For the upcoming T20 world cup in Aus: #3 Hooda -> Relatively good against both bounce & spin ... can slip in an over or two of off spin #4 SKY -> Mr. 360 degrees #5 SDP (Hardik) -> India's top LOI player #6 DK -> in-form experienced finisher Is there a need for confusion/change?
  4. The team for the 5 T20s against WI to be played in WI/USA is expected to be announced tomorrow if I am not wrong ... Moshin deserves a shot. Selectors have given chances to Avesh & Arshdeep, both of whom are competitive, however, Moshin has the extra gear: Can crank it up to 150 kmph when required Uses the bounce and length well Can get some zip off the pitch esp. if it has cracks Brings in the left-arm angle Offers consistency (though in T20s anyone can get hit on good batting surfaces)
  5. Considering the 2022 (Aus) & 2024 (WI & USA) T20 WCs, which one (or two) is the better bet and therefore should be given more opportunities? Below are pros & cons of each player: Gaikwad Pros: Good against both pace & spin. Plays bounce well. Cons: Can take some time to get going. Can bat only in the top order (#1-3). Gill Pros: Good against both pace & spin. Plays bounce well. Cons: Coming to terms with the format. Can bat only in the top order (#1-3). Hooda Pros: Good against both pace & spin. Plays bounce well. Can bat anywhere in the line up. Can bowl an over or two. Not stats focused so far. Cons: None observed so far apart from needing more games to gain experience & improve himself further. Kishan Pros: Good against spin. Can bat anywhere in the line up. Can keep. Cons: Can struggle against pace & bounce. Can take some time to get going. Shaw Pros: Attacking batsman. Can utilize powerplay. Not stats focused so far. Cons: Can struggle against bounce. Below average fielder. S Iyer Pros: Good against spin. Cons: Can struggle against pace & bounce. Can take some time to get going. Can bat only in the top 4. V Iyer Pros: Attacking batsman. Can utilize powerplay. Can bowl an over or two. Not stats focused so far. Cons: Can struggle against pace & bounce. Average fielder esp. catching under pressure.
  6. Life is usually about managing limited resources (unless you plan well to enjoy the benefits of the seeds that you sow). In cricket, while we, the fans, hope for an ideal 11 (not going to be one unless you had shown the foresight in the past) which is like a mix of an AT11 of the great Aus & WI players, there is usually going to be a trade off somewhere. A trade off has its pros and cons. One of the areas where the T20 team can sharpen is the #7 (a placeholder # as the player can play anywhere in the top 7-8) position where the team has two options (none of them currently “ideal”): a) Play a batsman who can bowl a few overs to share the 5th bowler’s overs. Candidates include V Iyer, Tewatia, Abhishek Sharma (who can bat in the top 3 as well but those slots are jam packed), Krunal, etc. (Guys like Hooda are good enough to come in as one of the top 6 batsmen). Many of the candidates appear not be in the scheme of things for the upcoming T20 World Cup b) Play a bowler who can bat. Candidates include Harshal, D Chahar, Thakur, Sundar (has the potential to bat in the top 4 as well but those slots are jam packed), Axar, Jadeja, etc. Looking at the recent playing 11s, the team appears to be giving more weightage to this option. Two players can also be played at #7-8 from this group (as they are bowlers who are likely to bowl 3-4 overs more often than not) I think the route to go depends upon various factors including the batting form of the top 6 and the bowling form of the 4 other bowlers. With SDP (Hardik) bowling, along with the prospect of Hooda, who can slip in an over or two, also in the 11, what India do with this position is not a major issue (esp. if most of the others in the team are doing well). It can be treated like a luxury or wild card slot. Take the decision based on form of others in the 11 and of the candidate. At the moment, the team has invested in Harshal (D Chahar and may be Sundar are likely to get a shout if fit and in form) so let him get a few more chances till he either swims or sinks. Which direction would (or should) India go in the upcoming T20 World Cup (assuming that the position is not a key concern)?
  7. Read the rules first: Do not predict after the game has started. Predictions stop at 5.30 am EST of the match day. If predictions are open for more than one game, you get all your prediction in by 5.30 am EST on the day of the first game. If you predict after the deadline, you could get a -5 points penalty Give yourself a point for every correct prediction in the group games, 2 points for the correct SF winner predictions, and 4 points for the correct F winner prediction. No unnecessary editing. Any editing after 5.30 am EST of the first game of open predictions is subject to the same penalty of -5 points Try to have all your predictions for the open games in one post I may hand out an audiobook code of my book to the winner BOL Prediction open for the following games below: Aus v SA at DSC Eng v WI at DSC BD v SL at S'jah Ind v Pak at DSC AFG v SCO at S'jah (1 point for the each correct prediction in the group games)
  8. Cricketing reasons: Openers are in the process of striking form. Pace bowling attack is competitive. Zampa is stepping up. Maxwell & Stoinis can be a handful with both the bat and the ball. Smith is doing well in his role as the floater. Non cricketing reasons: Yellow could be the lucky color in 2021 ... Next year, Aus could be destined to be both host and defending champion Aus could have a bad game. If that happens at the group stage, would like to see how the team bounces back. Other potentially lucky teams (it terms of potential and form, there is nothing much to seperate): Eng under Captain Morgan NZ as 2021 has been strong for it Pak, if it does not lose steam (could be one bad game away from falling apart) and so on as you cannot write any good team off in this format - AFG or NAM can surprise too
  9. ENG and NZ, the two teams that tend to thrive in pressure situations, meet again in a world cup knockout game. Their last meeting at the 2019 ODI World Cup was memorable as we probably watched the best ODI game in the history of cricket. If the recent history is anything to go by, it could be a close game. Pre-match, I see it as a 50/50 game. Both the teams are led by astute and stoic captains. Both teams have won the last two world titles, England the ODI world cup champions, and NZ, the World Test Champions. Both teams are pretty good fielding sides as well. Where they differ is in their key strength - batting for Eng and bowling for NZ. The game could also turn into a battle of power plays with England's key in form batsmen Buttler, Bairstow, and Moeen battling the Kiwi swing bowlers. Toss, if dew settles in, could play a role too. Both the teams have played one game at Abu Dhabi where they dismissed their opposition for 124 and chased the target with 8 wkts remaining. So again a lot of commonalities b/w these two sides. Whichever team wins, let's hope for some great cricket! Cricinfo preview - Link ... Poll added for poll lovers. It closes before the toss tomorrow. Recent happy moments for these teams: BOL to both the teams!!

  12. A quick match thread - Eng v SL. SL won the toss and will field. This is a positive for Eng, which is in SF, to be able to bat first to for the first time.
  13. Another potential cracker of a game on cards. As WI win over BD and AFG fight against Pak showed, you do not need to worry about batting first if you are prepared to play good cricket and fight it out! So far in G1, these two have been the best teams on display, therefore the winner of the game is expected to book a place in the knockouts. For this game, I am expecting the tactics from the captains to be almost spot on. May see some innovation as well unless one of the sides has a bad day, in which case the other team does not need to push itself much. Again, will not bother with stats and matchups as teams should have identified their inform players by now and use them according to the situation. Cricinfo preview - Link.

  14. A game that has the potential to be an edge of the seat thriller. At one corner, we have the dark horses, the AFG Snow Leopards. Diagonally, across them are the favorites to top G2, the PAK Markhors! Both can be extremely dangerous on their day, which is a Friday! It is an evening game, so dew could be a major factor. PAK has won two tosses, so maybe it is time for AFG to win its. AFG's bowling is among the best for the conditions and in dew, the Snow Leopards batsmen can be as good as of most teams. I will not waste time with stats (unfiltered stats mean zilch) and stuff like matchups (no point w/o knowing how the data is created) as they may not account for much. It is a new day where it depends upon how you turn up. If an off spinner has a great record v a left hander, but if the left hander is playing superbly and/or the off-spinner bowling badly, it accounts for nothing. Which is why captaincy is important in cricket as you have to look at who is bowling and batting well to take those decision. It is good to have a L-R combination if those batsmen are all playing well but you do not promote a slow batsman to maintain that combination in death overs. Give a few more overs to your best in-form strike bowlers in PPs. TM also has to see who is shaping up well even in nets. Unlike India, I expect other subcon teams to be relatively more "street smart".
