Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

Now that the IPL is finally over, using the impact/match with a qualifying of 7-8 matches below which the stat does not stabilize, here are the impact players: Gill, Yashasvi, Siraj, Axar, RJ, Shami, SkAY, Piyush, Rutu, Kohli, NTTV, Varun Obviously, as Kumar pointed out, this is skewed towards opene...

Re: ITF Women La Marsa Tunisia W25, W40, May 29- June 11, 2023

Thanks for the explanation. Are there matches where she does not serve as many DFs? How do the points won on 2nd serve look like in those matches vs this? I know I am being pedantic. But, would be interesting to see if she tries to do more on her 2nd serve when she is losing more points off it or no...

Re: ITF Women La Marsa Tunisia W25, W40, May 29- June 11, 2023

How many aces? What % of first serve points and second serve points did she win? The idea is that if you are getting enough aces and getting first serve points, then taking the risk to hit a better second serve even knowing that some will result in double faults may be okay.

Re: World Test Championship final 2021-23 (The Oval)

Mine is running fine. There is the piddly issue of being in the team and being in the standby and getting a visa to the U.K., etc. that takes time. We have not managed to implement teleportation of humans and free movement of people across borders yet.

Maybe, but I think guy is not so powerful that his balls delivered sitting in India will reach the Oval leave aside being lethal to the Aussies.

Re: World Test Championship final 2021-23 (The Oval)

From the squad, my team is: Rohit, Jaiswal (leftie), Pujara, Kohli, Gill, Bharat, Ashwin, Jadeja, Shami, Siraj, Umesh. No Rahane, essentially. It’s time to throw both Gill and Jaiswal into the mix. Ashwin MUST play. Tempted to play Shardul in place of Siraj because Thakur has shown he can bat, but ...

Re: World Test Championship final 2021-23 (The Oval)

Kumar, actually on subcontinental pitches, we need Bharat. Keeping to spinners requires much more skill than to keepers. That is why for a while we played Pant abroad and Saha in India. Then Pant got better and Dravid thought players don't get injured anymore. BTW, did Saha remember to thank Dravid ...

Re: World Test Championship final 2021-23 (The Oval)

The composition of the team is very stupid. Here are the batsmen: Rohit, Gill, Pujara, Kohli, Rahane No backups whatsoever. If someone gets hurt at the last minute, they will have to really scamper. At least Yashasvi is going to be in London. Two keepers: Bharat, Kishan I will have to go with Bharat...

Re: World Test Championship final 2021-23 (The Oval)

Kumar has an excellent analysis. I wonder whether we should speak of SENA in one go anymore. Australia has the most batting pitches days after the drop-in pitches were introduced. Or at least had when I last checked about 2-3 years ago. So, should we consider success in Australia? Or should we look...

Re: FIH Men's Pro League

There's no point in watching when Akashdeep, Mandeep, Lalit, Jarmanpreet and other perennial non performers are selected. Belgium played several newcomers, while we keep going back to dross! Just hope things get better after 2024 when most of my 'favourites' will retire...or could be 2028! :damn: H...

He should play futures and improve his rank. Right now he is losing to everybody. He needs to start winning somewhere.

Re: Indian Premier League (IPL)

But, but Kumar, you are objecting to cherrypicking. If we do not cherrypick, how can we say crap bowlers are good and good bowlers are bad? We need to be able to pick one innings or better still one over or better still one ball to make our point. Looking at overall records is not acceptable. We nee...
