    Ok wtf was that, Rahane really has looked ordinary in the ODI format I must say, he's not exactly grabbing his opportunities.

    Seriously, Rahane doesn't know how to pace a ODI innings while opening.

    The bowl is swinging around here and he has pressured himself out.

    He likes to start his innings while rotating the strike usually and by playing some shots on the off side. When that is cut off due to field restrictions in ODI's he just panics trying to up the ante. Today, when he didn't need to play these shots he was swinging at every ball.

    Opening with Gambhir isn't helping either, as both aren't aggressive.

    eh I'm just more annoyed at the way he got out, it's almost as if he had a bit of a brain freeze cuz he just got stuck.

    The difference between Finn & Dernbach's ODI record to date is pretty stark, with the latter going at about a run and a half per over more.

    Good start though. How do we think Woakes will go?

    He was trying to work it towards the onside, when he should have been playing it straight or defending it.

    Because he had 4 off 14, he felt like he had to score of everything and he does that on a consistent basis which is frustrating.

    Got the length wrong too, it seemed. Strange dismissal altogether, yeah.

    Rahane's not in the best nick right now, you can see it with the way he's batting. He's also throwing away starts with stupid shots. This is why you don't keep a player on the sidelines with him playing little to no cricket while being in top form for a long while. We did this with Tyagi too, he was backup for a whole year, played no cricket, then lost his form. Rahane will probably get form back as soon as he goes back to domestic cricket because he's a far superior batsman compared to most of the other young batsmen, but it's just bad player management imo.

    Opening with Gambhir isn't helping because he's not in form either. The selectors have just got to be forceful and drop him. Give him a reason to be proactive and get back in form. Hell, I'm a big Kohli fan and he could use a break too if he doesn't get runs today, Pujara is in tremendous form and now would be the perfect time for him to play and give Kohli a breather.

    This is a Jadeja type bowling pitch, ball is stopping a bit, 250+ should be pretty good I'd say.

    Yuvi playing a bit of a gem here on a pitch that's seaming and gripping.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
