    *Official* India Tour of New Zealand 2019

    Like I had pointed out a few days back, Khaleel is way too raw, he needs time and these kind of games won't do his confidence any good. He gets wickets in the domestic games coz of his pace, but he lacks the discipline. Unadkat seems like our best option if we desperately want a left armer...

    *Official* India Tour of Australia 2018/19

    Khaleel Ahmed and Siraj? Really? Unadkat is a better option than these two any day. Siraj and Khaleel are just too raw, they can get very untidy at times, they have a very good record in domestic cricket but they are not up to the mark atm. Unadkat has bowled in crunch situations in IPL and...

    *Official* India Tour of Australia 2018/19

    For the top 3 test teams, 2 key batsmen out of the team shouldn't be an issue at home. I think the Aussie bowlers would have easily compensated for the absence of two senior players if the pitches were a little better. Starc, Cummins and Hazlewood are all capable enough to run through any...

    Was Sehwag the greatest player of spin in the hisory of the game ??

    I think Michael Clarke was a very good player of spin, his footwork made it extremely difficult for the spinners to settle down. Clarke and Sehwag are pretty much up there when it comes to playing spin IMO. Also, watch this,

    *Official* India Tour of England 2018

    Vaughan needs to be put in his place, overdoes everything for attention. Love Rashid's response. No one listens to Vaughan - Rashid lashes out at "stupid" comments - ESPNcricinfo

    The Unpopular Opinions Thread

    I have been grilled for this over here, but I will repeat it again. I feel NZ should have considered Nathan McCullum for the test team at some point. They went ahead with the lesser talented Mark Craig while he was still around. My suggestion was purely based on what I saw in NMac's bowling(not...

    Worst regular bowler for a top side

    He never said he was "great", Sami just pointed out that his stats were misleading (and that he wanted a few more opportunities) and that can be the case a lot of times. He was average at best in his test career, but the stats make him look like the worst bowler of all time, which he isn't.

    Worst regular bowler for a top side

    In Sami's defense, If you look at the breakdown of wickets taken by him according to the batting order, 45.5% were top order batsmen (Anderson - 37.6%, Akram - 31.9%, Imran Khan - 35.4% and Ambrose - 36.3%). 33.9% were middle order batsmen while just 20.7 % were tailenders. (Anderson -...

    Wastemen etc

    Not saying this from a religious POV, but there is a difference in the threshold of pain, plants hardly feel anything. And on a another note, if you go back in time, even slavery was considered ok at one point of time, but was it right? We need to keep evolving, we are at the top of the food...

    Wastemen etc

    Food is one thing, I know monks who wouldn't use medicines that are tested on animals, even if they have no option but to take those meds to treat a certain health condition(I am sure there is a movie on this topic). On one end I feel its extreme, on the other end its great to see a group of...

    Iyer needs to be a bit careful, more than the results, youngsters getting opportunities to show their potential becomes more important with these A tours. The team has 5 bowlers but the captain throws the ball to part timers for no reason. Hooda bowling a couple of overs here and there is...

    Saw it live, haven't seen a better bowling performance in under 19 cricket.

    Pedro Collins v Ryan Sidebottom v Wahab Riaz

    My pick would be Sidebottom out of the three. But talking about Wahab Riaz's spell, that was the best spell of that series, in my opinion of course. Numbers can be weird, sometimes they accurately describe the game while in some cases they don't do justice to the player's performance. Wahab...

    Best ever all round ODI performance

    175, 1-32 and a catch. I don't need to say anything about his batting, India had lost 7 wickets for 78 before Kapil lifted the score to 266. Also, he was the most economical bowler of the match. Without this performance, cricket wouldn't have got as popular as it is right now in India and...

    I am wondering why he hasn't featured in the IPL in the last two years.

    Again, you are clearly dodging the main point here. Battingwise, Jadeja hardly leaves an impact, and we are talking about overseas games here, so whether you pick Jadeja or Axar, their role will to contribute 30-40 useful runs every now and then. So there isn't much to choose from between...

    He batted at number 8 and 9, what do you expect? Just batted once at number 5 and got 38. That doesn't prove that he is a quality batsman, but still, without giving a proper opportunity, you can't judge a player. Still a question mark on whether he can do well with the bat at the highest level...
