Re: India in England, summer of 2021

Kohli is not making a comeback as I have said over the last couple of years. His game has declined technically and mentally, and he is not exactly working on either anymore (gym work is not going to cut it). As for Jadeja, he is comfortably the best all-rounder in tests over the past 5 years. Ashwin...

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

Tim van Rijthoven has now made it to R4 of Wimbledon as a WC, where he will play Djokovic. What a fairytale run from the journeyman.

Overall this is a pathetic Wimbledon with the ban on the Russians and all the Covid withdrawals and low crowd attendances.

He did choke a bit on the 72nd hole with a double bogey.

Re: India in England, summer of 2021

Pant is already in the top-5 most impactful Indian batsmen in SENA.

It is also a shame that Jadeja was injured in SA. We would have finally won a series if he wasn't.

I am pretty sure Ram also set a record for most Challenger MD entries without a win.

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

25-year old Dutch journeyman Tim van Rijthoven won Hertogenbosch beating Medvedev 6-4, 6-1 in the finals. He beat FAA and Fritz on his route to the finals. Why is this noteworthy? He was ranked #205 coming into the tournament, he has never won a Challenger (something which RamK deservedly got a lot ...

Re: Indian Athletics Thread ...

Don't need to be an optimist or pessimist and look at the data.

Doping is one of the easiest to catch by looking at historical data/progression.

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

I think Alcaraz is almost certainly going to be the next big star in tennis. Best teenage prodigy since Nadal himself almost 2 decades back. No real weakness in his game, except inability to win free points on serve, and has a strong mentality and head. Going to call it that he is going to usurp th...

Re: Indian Shooting thread

These results are only important for Indian media to lap it up and for athletes to get money from clueless corporates and government. I can't really hate it even though I think it is undeserving. :Offtopic: read an interview recently with Hima Das where the stupid journalist is asking her about whic...

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

We can't say the hype got to him when people here have been hyping him as the favourite :D I created the Alcaraz bandwagon here and still think he is likely to be the next #1 but Nadal and Djokovic are in their mid-30s now (and Federer done) so winning Masters 1000s is not high on their agenda and f...

Re: India in England, summer of 2021

Pujara's runs came in the second division of county cricket. cricinfo described those pitches as slow and boring. The top wicket-takers are Potts, Roland-Jones, Conners, Paterson and Patterson-White. I don't know any of this lot except Roland-Jones who played a couple of tests. The top scorer was Sh...
