    David Warner retirement thread

    Would have to be naive to believe otherwise.

    David Warner retirement thread

    a) ofcourse he is only a part of it (scapegoat) b) ofcourse they have done it before on multiple occasions.. Smith was so casual about it right afterwards as if it wasn't much of a deal.

    The ATG Teams General arguing/discussing thread

    Bradman gives Australia the edge but who knows how he would fare on dustbowls against some of the top spinners India's produced, none of whom Bradman ever faced nor did he have to play reverse swing. So Bradman is a mystery, could gun it or succumb like the rest.

    The ATG Teams General arguing/discussing thread

    Yes. In subcontinent these guys are untouchable, they play 70% of their cricket in such conditions so they would dominate, just like how other countries' batsmen would thrive in their own conditions. Plus there's Gavaskar, Dravid, Tendulkar and Kohli would do well overseas as well. You can't...

    The ATG Teams General arguing/discussing thread

    Bedi: "A spinner's spinner, England's great offie Jim Laker once remarked: "My idea of paradise is Lord’s in the sunshine, with Ray Lindwall bowling from one end and Bishan Bedi from the other". Perhaps most impressively of all, some of Bedi's greatest achievements came away from India and out...

    The ATG Teams General arguing/discussing thread

    India all-time XI Gavaskar Sehwag Dravid Tendulkar Kohli Azharuddin Dhoni+ Dev Kumble Khan Bedi That batting-line.... is as good as any! Kohli is pretty much an ATG, he is probably going to end up with at least 40 tons in tests, and 100+ tons in total. Azharuddin > Laxman imo...

    ***Official*** India in South Africa 2017/18

    Kohli has definitely breached the 900 icc ratings barrier after that innings, (may even go well past it,) so after the series it'll be reflected in his 'career best rating' figure, even though his rating by the end of the series may come back down below 900 if he doesn't perform in the coming...

    ***Official*** India in South Africa 2017/18

    If India hadn't lost so many wickets, Kohli right now would be whacking it or at least trying to do... but given the current situation, he is having to play slightly watchfully and looking to maximise easy runs..

    ***Official*** India in South Africa 2017/18

    -Jadhav is a hack -Rahane is too inconsistent and unreliable. -Pandya is a fool and not good enough either. Neither a top 6 batsman nor a bowler who can give you 10 overs. He gets whacked around with ease. On this tour he has had 8 innings now.. and has only performed Once with the bat and once...

    ***Official*** India in South Africa 2017/18

    Hmm. He is out now. Indian batting is so out of date outside of the top order. The middle order is unconvincing plus they are unable to do big hitting at the death. So even when India are like 240 after 40 overs, India still only get like 325 after 50 instead of 340-350+. Its basically a top...

    Whats Dhoni upto?? 7 off 19! I honestly think he is well past it and is a liability as a batsman but still a great keeper and senior leader.

    Is AB de Villiers an ATG?

    Tendulkar didn't choke in 2011 final. He ''failed". There is a massive difference. Malinga got him out with a ball tailing away after being hit for a few glorious boundaries. You are the one nitpicking, you are using a single innings, using the 2011 final to evaluate him when he has already...

    Is AB de Villiers an ATG?

    Australia were a bit fortunate to have batted first as they could play their natural attacking game without any scoreboard pressure to bind them, and so they totally took the attack to India... Gilly and Hayden had a blistering start and set it all up and then Ponting and Martyn took it all the...

    Is AB de Villiers an ATG?

    haha chasing 360 in that era was impossible and that too against Australia. Even if he had scored a 100, India would've lost. full stop. Game was over in the first innings itself, only a fool would suggest otherwise. Yet he "choked". Learn the meaning of that word before throwing it around...

    Is AB de Villiers an ATG?

    At least come close to winning one. South Africa haven't gotten close despite their immensely strong teams. Tendulkar had already been exceptional in multiple world cups. And he led India to 2 world cup finals with notable contributions from him, including player of the tournament in 2003...
