Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

The plan against Indian tail is pretty simple. We need to work on it, that I think is the major reason why we are not #1. We will be back to #1 in a year after a couple of home series. We had 5 series in SENA in a row. That said, as I have said before, Australia has been deliberately targeting all ...

Australia finally bowled to the stumps, but it was way too late! Was trying a lot to bounce them out

Re: Tokyo Olympics 2020 projections

What do u all think? Olympics will happen this year? Having people stay in Olympic village may not be very possible! It probably gets pushed to late summer with potentially all participants vaccinated and only vaccinated spectators allowed There would be huge backlash if all this sports players gets...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Just my guess. Say, when the people register for vaccination, I assume they will be asked "if Covidshield is not available, are you willing to take Covaxin that has ICMR's preliminary safety approval, and be part of its phase-III trial on its efficacy?".. Would people say yes? Only very very few, b...

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

Kirmani was brilliant! Again probability lot of bias, but don’t think we had anyone as good after kirmani! Loved Sadanand as well! Pant walks into this team as a pure bar over both architects and Vihari abroad,but cant afford him to be keeper! Why are these guys throwing it away after such a start! ...

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

Jadeja is out of the series -- absolutely disastrous! I would try and see if Hardik Pandya is still around, because he would be just the one to add balance to the side in Jadeja's absence. We cannot afford to lengthen the tail further. Kuldeep Yadav can bat a bit, but not necessarily outside India....

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

This has been one of the very ordinary Aussie attack! The way starc laughs after bowling a bouncer to tail ender is just pathetic! I think the biggest mistake was sending in Vihari after Rahane’s dismissal! Are you saying it due to the their attitude as you said about Starc. Otherwise, this Aussie ...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

I agree that double bind placebo trials at this point are extremely difficult especially when approved efficient vaccine is available! It is probably unethical as well!! For those getting the vaccine on experimental basis, are we going to do follow ups to understand the safety/efficacy of the vaccin...

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

I think DRS umpire call is pretty dodgy! If umpire calls it not out and ball clips the bails, they say umpire call and do not overturn the decision! The question to the umpire would be if he refused the appeal because he thought it will miss the stumps or becoz he thought it pitched in line or may h...

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

Pant injury was a huge momentum changer! Even though he looked tentative against new ball, i think if he had not been a injured he would have scored at least a 50 if not more, Will be interesting to see if he is going to keep! But aindia will definitely feel that this was a game, where they shed cou...

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

Looks like Saha can replace Pant if he can’t keep

I think if Ashwin had stayed, India may have gotten lot closer! 94 run lead

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

Pitch looks pretty dandy so far! I would expect Australia to let India chase around 420 and declare soon after tea

Jadeja living dangerously! Lead now 99

Now jadeja is injured! On his bowling hand! Falling like 9 pins
