Re: National Cricket Team Players (India)

Shreyas iyer treatment do not appear to be fair. He did play in the ranji trophy before start of series. There is always some doubt when u return from injury and he should have been given benefit of doubt

Re: England in India 2024-25 : The Pataudi Trophy

Rahul is in London it seems seeking treatment. So, he will not be ready for test 5. I suppose Padikkal will make a debut? Or are they going to play both Padikkal and Patidar (PP :-)) and rest Gill? I don't think we should rest Gill unless he has a niggle. He needs to learn to be consistent. Of cour...

Re: England in India 2024-25 : The Pataudi Trophy

Now a separate note. How long do you think the real oldies Rohit, Ashwin, Kohli, and Jadeja play tests? Just trying to estimate when we need a replacement either due to retirement or their being dropped. Ashwin (if he does not find that final gear) may be the first domino to fall. He innovated in I...

Re: England in India 2024-25 : The Pataudi Trophy

In the last 5 years, in I4 Ashwin averages 21.54. That is much better than the 14 that Jadeja does by about 50%. Ashwin also faces 42 balls on average in I4 to Jadeja's 30. Bring on the next (perhaps false) excuse to justify Jadeja's horrendous second inning batting record. I do agree that Jadeja’s...

Re: England in India 2024-25 : The Pataudi Trophy

Well Jadeja is the closest comp to Pujara in this team. Jadeja is not as good defensively, but he prizes his wicket and very rarely throws away. Since covid, He has just scored at SR of 50 and higher 7 times (facing at least 10 balls) in around 32 innings while Pujara has done it 10 times in 48 inni...

Re: England in India 2024-25 : The Pataudi Trophy

Question is do they go with three seamers and drop one spinner? Very unlikely. Wood is probably still the favorite to be picked ahead of Atkinson, unless they go with three seamers As to India, pecking order is clear and Siraj will play over Akash Deep. Not sure how Akash bowls with older ball. When...

Re: T20 World Cup, Canada, USA 2024

They played Jurel as impact player last season. Very likely that he will continue in that role Butler, Jaiswal, Sanju, Hetmeyer, Parag or Jurel, Powell could be their batting line up. I expect Jurel to get lot of opportunities. I hope Parag gets opportunities. If he does not do well in IPL, he will ...

Re: England in India 2024-25 : The Pataudi Trophy

Will india go with three seamers at Dharmashala or revert to the same bowling combination with Bumrah returning for Akash Deep. Patidar is most likely gone with either Rahul or Padaikkal replacing him. Robinson may have tweaked his back while batting in firat inning and his fitness appears to br que...

Re: Indian domestic cricket/ players

BCCI is silent regarding Andhra Cricket. Prudhvi Raj KN, andra player and son of influential politician has complaint against Vihari for abusing him, in return his politician father used his power to take away captaincy from Vihari. Vihari now quit Andhra Cricket & will join new Ranji team. No ...

Re: Indian domestic cricket/ players

But still Mumbai scored only 384 and he remained unbeaten. Also Baroda has 127-2 decent start at par with 384. I think it was a good performance. It looks to be a slow spinning wicket where patience is a required from the score as spinner are getting the wickets an RPO is less. Both Tushar Deshpand...

Re: England in India 2024-25 : The Pataudi Trophy

@Athitee, i was trying to act like it never happened . :devil: Would u all believe that i thought that Ashwin was due for 5 wickets In the second innings. I did not expect our batsman to do this well. Gill was a pleasant surprise and I hope this second innings boost his confidence. Still Jury is out...

Re: Indian domestic cricket/ players

Not having Atit sheth has probably hurt Baroda. Mumbai looking very comfortably placed to reach semis with lead of 400+ Karnataka looking to advance to semi and will be chasing a stiff target . They need to score 268 runs woth 9 wickets in hand. Mayank finally showing some semblance of form in this ...

Re: T20 World Cup, Canada, USA 2024

This team mgmt believes that players with international success can adjust to all format. See Mukesh being selected with his domestic T20 and list A Dinesh Karthik made the T20 WC out of nowhere after an awesome IPL. If Jurel performs 75% of what karthik did, he will get picked. Jurel has gained the...

Re: England in India 2024-25 : The Pataudi Trophy

What impressed me was how he picked length. He was so fast at making the right decision. You see his trigger movement – this was at the start of the partnership on a wide ball – but he’s so good at getting back and forward and making the right decision at the right time for that ball. Interesting i...

Re: T20 World Cup, Canada, USA 2024

Hot take straight off the oven. Jurel will be the T20 WC keeper. All he has to do is outperform Jitesh in IPL

Ishan Kishen chose a bad time to request for rest. His path into indian team just became even more harder.
