    India Tour Of Sri Lanka 2021

    The T20I series defeat does not raise any concern whatsoever. If anything, it gave a good international level work experience to these young blokes who have been earmarked as the future. You have 7-8 players being isolated due to COVID and then you hurriedly schedule 2 T20I's back to back in...

    Future Indian Captains

    India honestly need to warm up to the idea of 'split captaincy', now that they've been forced into it due to COVID protocols. It is ok even if it leads to ego clashes between few players. The BCCI can set protocols around the professional handling of power across formats, and draw the...

    India Tour Of Sri Lanka 2021

    This series should come as a massive eye opener for Sri Lankan cricket, as to where they are and what they need to do! It would be incredibly stupid if Sri Lanka dont use this opportunity to assess their stocks and work on improvement. India's "B Team from a B squad" have stretched Sri Lanka to...

    India Tour Of Sri Lanka 2021

    Only a matter of time before Shaw gets into the limited overs side! The Sehwag'esque gameplay and the backing that the current team management has in him, should get him into the limited overs side quickly. I am not sure how much he fixed his technique after that Australia tour, but as Sehwag...

    India tour of England Aug-Sept 2021

    The usual "make the guy with the quiet personality as the scapegoat" stereotype has started again. Apparently Pujara's test career is said to be in serious jeopardy, what with Kohli yet again talking about "intent" and all after the WTC final defeat. Sometimes I feel like strangling the...

    ICC World Test Championship 2019/21 Final - General Discussions

    I honestly didn't care about this test match or this concept of the "World Test Championship". I know I am getting detached from this whole concept of international cricket and I just follow it for entertainment purposes now and only a few hours (as opposed to a time, when my emotions used to go...

    India Tour Of Sri Lanka 2021

    Yeah coz in those days, the international cricket calendar was not so crazy crowded! Today in a day and age about milking the goose all you can and with COVID creating a logistical nightmare, this was bound to happen. Did the AUS and WI teams at their peak, have to deal with crazy international...

    India tour of England Aug-Sept 2021

    Rohit Sharma/Mayank Agarwal Shubman Gill Cheteshwar Pujara Virat Kohli Ajinkya Rahane Rishabh Pant Ravindra Jadeja Ravichandran Ashwin Ishant Sharma Mohammed Shami Jasprit Bumrah Well rounded side! Gill should play. Give him the series! He impressed a lot in that "famous Perth Gabba test" where...

    Indian Premier League - General Discussion

    It doesn't matter if India doesn't win the T20 WC this year. There is another one coming up next year. If we lose that, the ODI WC follows immediately in 2023. If we lose that, there is another ICC event following in 2024, 2025, 2026, 2027 and so on.... Every year, we will get a shot at an ICC...

    ICC World Test Championship 2019/21 Final - General Discussions

    Unadkat is just 29 years old.. Certainly not in the bracket for the "bring back Praveen Kumar; bring back Munaf Patel" trolls. Maybe that's more of a T20 perception on Unadkat. Honestly I haven't followed his domestic games live, but from what I read, 67 wickets in a Ranji season and that too...

    ICC World Test Championship 2019/21 Final - General Discussions

    Was reading an article on this recently, but I feel maybe BCCI missed a trick by not giving Jaydev Unadkat another chance at the test level, after his massively stellar Ranji season in 2019-20 where he picked up 67 wickets in Saurasthra's title run (and I hear most of his wickets were on docile...

    The Hundred

    I am going to respectfully disagree with a few of my Indian friends here who've posted their opinions, but - I am not totally averse to the idea of "The Hundred". Even with T20's being almost 2 decades old as of now, cricket is still struggling to reach into the big "non cricketing nations"...

    ICC World Test Championship 2019/21 Final - General Discussions

    Absolutely! I mean, does this stat even matter now that ICC is hosting a marquee event for 3 consecutive years (2021 WTC; 2021 World T20; 2022 World T20; 2023 ODI WC)? By the end of the 2023 ODI WC, an ICC event would have become meaningless and not worthy of stats branding.

    India Team Discussion

    What I meant to say was, I am happy that they choose this amongst others, to boost up their own image because women's cricket will benefit from this even if it gives a selfish benefit to the BCCI's political honchos.

    India Team Discussion

    I am happy enough that they are actually taking the time to use this as a 'social responsibility campaign' to boost up their own image of being caring for women's cricket. Earlier generations didn't care enough to even do this! The more people start watching women's cricket and the more...

    Indian Premier League - General Discussion

    Apparently, some overzealous analyst (RCB fan in disguise!) did some funky computer modeling to predict the results of the remaining games of IPL 2021 and called for RCB to win the IPL 2021 title per his predictive modeling. Its funny that Google caught onto it and calls RCB as the winner of...

    India tour of Australia Nov'20-Jan'21

    Look who's talking about 'distractions' and 'sideshows'. First of all, Indian players never publicly spoke about not going to Gabba. The tour still went ahead in the same venues and this idiot should remember that India played a 3rd string side in that supposed "Aussie fortress" that Paine was...

    Indian Premier League - General Discussion

    Frankly, the result of IPL 2021 has already stopped mattering.. Public will lose interest in a tournament that is abruptly stopped mid way and then restarted. The teams with the most England players (RR, CSK) will not care because for RR, they are already in the deepest of pits despite having...
