    The Orissa Cricket Association administrators claimed that Bevan had to go for a pressing personal problem back at home, sources in the cricket circle here said he was shown the door following the dismal performance of the Orissa team in recently concluded East Zone leg of Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 meet at Jamshedpur.

    Orissa failed to qualify for the all-India T20 knock out stage. This happened just two days after Orissa was thrashed by Bengal to be knocked out from the knock-out stage.

    Yeah, have mentioned him many times already on here in different threads.

    Him and Unmukt Chand are 2 talents that are really coming up in terms of under 20 batsman in the country right now. Singh's technique needs a bit of tightening, but looks a pretty good prospect, IMO.

    NO. His technique is pretty dodgy and he doesn't have a great attitude either. Has to prove himself in anything beyond Domestic cricket in India first tbh. Many other options ahead of him atm.

    Jadeja gets a triple century. Wowee.

    Believe it or not, I have been supporting Jadeja a lot during his tough times in India colours when all my friends here were scolding him. I hope he comes good and prove that he belongs.

    Tbf, most of the bowling attacks don't do the pitches any favors.

    True.

    Orissa's lost Mohanty as well, no wonder they're doing so poorly.

    Oops...thought that question was a joke.

    Somehow, no overseas player or official was as famous as Intikhab Alam, who coached Punjab to the drawn Ranji final of the 2004-05 season, which Railways led in the first innings to 'win' the trophy. Not surprisingly, Alam was not amused, and said the trophy should have been shared.
    "Talent is nothing without opportunity"
    "You're not remembered for aiming at the target, but hitting it"

    Twenty20 used to be boring.

    He's got an average over 57, more centuries than fifties, and is barely touched by the vices of the IPL, sticking to the grind of Ranji and Duleep Trophy. While I wouldn't put him in the XI, he should surely shoot in ahead of those bonus wicketkeepers, none of whom are even half the batsman he is. His fielding is also a huge plus, and even though he can't make the XI, he can still be useful as a sub. Besides, a whole lot of new internationals seem to go the distance despite suspect technique, which is a very common malady in Indian domestic players. Pujara and Rahane included.

    I'm still not supportive of Jadeja. He's a powered-down, young, flat-and-slow-bowling version of Abhishek Nayar (or Rajat Bhatia), but just lucky and well-supported by higher-ups, and doesn't really add much to the team. Besides, Orissa is not a title contender (more a relegation contender) and the pitch is flat. There are better players than him who have been lost due to poor management, and it's only a matter of time until he's found way out of his depth at the top level, once the Indians face the Aussies or even the crisis-stricken, yet flamboyant Windies.

    RP Singh took five wickets as he and Bhuv Kumar scythed through the Punjab lower order. From 329/5, they slumped to 350, with both Harbhajan and Bipul out for zeroes (also Gony). Harbhajan went wicketless, while Raina is just in and Kaif was out after fifty, in the sixties. The fielding of UP was shoddy as usual, and while the Punjab tail is hardly weak, they played too many poor shots in a row to give their wickets away to largely stationary fielders off slightly-faster-than-medium deliveries that moved a little.

    Sreesanth, 23-4-119-1 at 5.17 an over against a plate side..what a clown.

    The Mumbai and Karnataka games look to be one of the few that will have a result, along with possibly Delhi.

    Seems to be a lot of teams that are banking on first innings points this round.

    The pitches will start to wear as the season goes on though. Bengal vs Gujarat seems to be particularly flat.

    Don't see how you can replace a backup wicket keeper with a batsman in the squad?

    In any case, there are quite a few other batsman ahead of him. Has shown not much so far to show that he is ready to take the next step.
