Re: Chess: World Team Championship 2022, Jerusalem

For casual followers which is most of this board, these are the only 6 tournaments that matter - FIDE World Championship - nothing to add here, Anand last won in 2012. FIDE Candidates - final qualifying tournament to the WC, Anand last won in 2013 and last played in 2013. No other Indian has ever p...

Re: T20 World Cup, 2022

Anyway with today's match T20I careers and possibly ODI careers of Kartick, Ashwin and Shami are over. Rahul and Rohit would keep getting chances as there is a lot of advertising money riding on them. Bhuvi's future also appears uncertain.

Re: T20 World Cup, 2022

Heads need to roll. Rahul and Rohit should be given VRS. Youngsters need to be brought in rather than players chosen by advertisers.

Re: Indian Badminton Thread ...

What was sad to see is the way Srikanth got thrashed. I think his career is drawing to a close. Smilarly Saina lost in 3 games. She has been struggling with 3 game matches this year. Must be a stamina issue. 2022 or at most 2023 could be the last year for her as well. Lakshya doesn't have a difficul...

Re: Indian Shooting thread

A correction. Bindra is not India's only gold medallist in the World Shooting Championship. Manavjit Sandhu and Tejaswini Sawant have also won golds.

Re: Yuki Bhambri/ Saketh Myneni (pair) Thread

These are sort of matches you need to win to prove you belong to the top. If Yuki/Saki can win this it would truly establish their doubles credentials.

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Leave alone the Krishnans and Amritrajs what Jaidip, Premjit and Leander (inn singles) did seems amazing. We have truly reached the bottom of the pit.

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

I guess now we would have no player in the top 300. Is this the first time such a thing has happened?

Re: Australia In India 2022-23

The bigger mystery to be solved is how key players become uninjured before the IPL and injured before international matches. For most players I think IPL is starting to take precedence over World Cups and Asia Cups. They are starting to treat the World Cup as a minor event as there is no money to be...

Re: All-time Chess Achievements by India(ns)

One can argue that our players have performed as per their rankings I would have liked some of them to punch above their weight and not stagnate at that 10-20 level
