Re: ITF Team Juniors (u16 Davis/Fed Cup, u14 World Jun. Tennis)

Now this is a choke! Anyway, they are juniors. Maybe they will learn not to "celebrate a win" before the egg is hatched and the fat lady has sung loudly. Anyway, things happen in age-group tournaments where a much thinner slice of players participate due to the age limits. But, hopefully in the open...

Re: Prajnesh Gunneswaran thread

Maybe. But, age is a strong factor. At least for those who cannot hire the army of fitness trainers and nutritionists, etc. a la Federer, Nadal, etc. And, were not that much a freak of nature anyway. So, the margin is smaller.

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

They could very well also go to the southeast corner of Maharashtra and northeast part of Karnataka and get some Telugu speakers or even non speakers to come over and try out. It would also get more fans for them, e.g., in Solhapur and would be a good PR strategy. Increasing the media market does no...

Yes, so far so good. I think vaccine booster should be fully effective now.

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

Shakib bowled well. Again, I am a relative grading person. I would heartily replace every one of them if I get better players. The one player I know is a free agent is Warner. I hope KKR makes a play for him. Also, given the salary cap, you have to get value for money. So, it depends on how high the...

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

I know who I want gone. Eoin Morgan and Dinesh Karthik. Karthik missed the Faf stumping. Really, we are so short of keeper-bats? Get a young guy and groom him. Or else, get local chap Srivats Goswamy if he is not already signed by someone. If Morgan shows form in the T20I WC, he can stay. Karthik sh...

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

The oldies are going to win this. Stupid captaincy on top of the stupid batting (in the rest of the IPL, hasn't batted yet) by Eoin Morgan. Why did Lockie Ferguson get his last over after bowling 3 crappy overs? Iyer is being underbowled.

He should focus on doubles but play singles on the side as much as he can and as much as his body will allow. If he starts getting injured too often due to singles load, he should not play singles or choose to play singles with some intervals.

Re: T20I World Cup 2021

I agree that Chetan was a mediocre player. But, coming back to Atithee's point, I was thinking that maybe the other players do not want to do it and among those who were available, Chetan was the best? It may not be a bad idea to rotate the chairmanship among batsmen, med pacers, and spinners. Throw...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Okay, then. 1. Bundle it with trade deals as a valued sweetener. 2. Sell it to the highest bidder and invest the money back in our public health sector. Or even send some of that money as aid to very poor countries to gain goodwill and political clout that may be useful later. But, I agree. We do no...
