Re: Paris Olympics 2024

I still think about 7 would be what we will get.

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

So you think who among Samson and Rahul will be out? Or is Rahul going to be taken as a batsman and some other batsman like Yashasvi or Gill or Dube is out? Yes, Pant has lots of backers and after this innings he has played better than Kishan or DK overall in this IPL.

Re: FIDE Candidates 2024

Sorry for the typo. I hope he is Raining Lies and gets Dinged. This also sort of shows the illegitimacy of the candidacy style tournament. The holder of the title gets a huge gain in this system. And, if he or she is not in form, then there is no correction. Ideally, there should be a cutoff and the...

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

Fundamentally, the old guard plays the Dhoni way. Leave it for the end. Common sense says that is a bad idea. A better idea is hit in the power play overs like crazy. That is because you have only two fielders outside and so the chances of you getting out is lower. The new Dhoni is like the old Dhon...

Hmm. Seems like a perfectly good word is going to get obsolete at this rate!

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

In a match with teams scoring above 210, Ravindra Jadeja SR 84 and Padikkal SR 68. Both played 19 balls each. RJ is mentally a slow batsman by nature. So, he should be sent after DLC so that he has no other option but to hit. When sent in such situations he has performed well. Given a choice, he is ...

Re: FIDE Candidates 2024

Carlsen wanted to play Alireza. Gukesh trounced him (okay in one match). Maybe Gukesh becomes the WC and then Carlsen would want to play him? Gukesh is 1 point ahead of Diren in ELO Live Ratings. So, he is the favorite. :p Part of the lack of celebration maybe because the board was down twice! But, ...

Re: Roland Garros Claycourt Run-Up Tournaments 2024

Would a kind mod kindly move this to an Olympic Thread so that we can still have it there when we discuss the Olympics or want to look up things? Thanks.

Re: Roland Garros Claycourt Run-Up Tournaments 2024

But, he is not playing with Yuki either. So, why not just team up with Ramk and get him to play say two tournaments together even if it is a lower ranked tournament where Ramk can play singles qualies or whatever. Why is that not an option? The Asian Games debacles makes me be a bit afraid of a Bopa...

Re: Roland Garros Claycourt Run-Up Tournaments 2024

Who is the best partner for Rohan according to some of you who follow the game, watch doubles, etc. more closely? I have not watched much doubles and only watched Sumit this year.

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

SF, yes, I took it from ESPN CI Impact Ratings sorting them by Impact/Match. The Impact/Match supposedly rewards people for catches and stumpings and wickets for allrounders. But, I think all of their keeping in T20Is is about the same. And, we should just choose the best batter. Then, the Batting I...

Re: Indian Athletics Thread ...

We don't really have much except Chopra anyway. And, that too is in threat from a 20-year old German. But, I think Chopra will still hold.

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Sumit is also afraid because of his past injuries. So, may be he is over-cautious. But better over slightly than under if it does not upset his rhythm.

They meet the local pair of Struff and Miles.
