Re: West Indies in India

The selectors should quickly get rid of Pant for T20s (he might be ok for ODIs) and try out Samson. Otherwise we will very likely end up with same situation as CWC 2019 with Rayudu. If we give Pant 3-4 months and then decide he is useless, there will be no time to try anyone new. Also Iyer is mostly...

Re: Indian Shooting thread

I don't think they should exchange Chinki's quota unless there is a very strong reason to do so. Chinki's performances have been improving significantly over time, and she had better scores than Manu in these championships as also in the last world cup. Also getting another entry in skeet or trap or...

Re: Tokyo Olympic 2020 qualification - Hockey

I think our hockey teams as well as a few of our other sportspersons like Deepika and Manu really need some good counseling from a sports psychologist to calm down in tense situations.

Re: South Africa in India, Sept-Oct 2019

Winning by an innings doesn't give any extra points; taking care of your bowlers is far more important. That said, we have 5 full-time bowlers, and the fast bowlers haven't been really stretched too much, so it should be fine to enforce the follow on.

Re: Indian Boxing Thread

Looking at the performances here, I would seriously doubt a medal, unless we get very lucky with the draws again. Also Manju Rani may get shut out of an opportunity, since medal winners at these championships get automatic entry to the Olympic qualifiers. Same holds true for Shiva Thapa in 63 kg men...

Re: Indian Boxing Thread

Thanks for correcting me. But still I don't believe the Columbian boxer can be counted amongst the top 4-5 boxers in the world. Boxers from PRK, TUR, CHN, VIE (and possibly KAZ and JPN too) are likely ahead of her.

Re: Indian Boxing Thread

Mary has also benefited from a weak draw. Her real test will be next against a Turkish boxer. Jamuna Boro in 54 kg has been quite impressive, she should consider moving up to 57 kg to have a chance at the Olympics

Re: South Africa in India, Sept-Oct 2019

While Australia did prepare batting pitches last time, that was before the WTC. With WTC, everything changes because every game matters. If Australia is still in the hunt for a WTC finals spot, which it will likely be, it will try to maximize it's points from it's home games.

Re: South Africa in India, Sept-Oct 2019

With the start of WTC, I doubt we will be seeing a lot of batting pitches anymore. A draw does not benefit anyone. To be sure, Australia will prepare extremely seam friendly pitches when we tour. Also if we want to make it to the WTC finals, we should be preparing dustbowls against RSA. Infact I don...

Re: Tokyo Olympics 2020 projections

0.32 probability for archery seems a little too high (0.1 is a better estimate); as too does 0.5 for Abhishek Verma and 0.3 for Anjum and Manu. These should be closer to 0.3-0.4 for Abhishek and 0.2 for Anjum-Manu. Apurvi should be a little higher at 0.6 though. Neeraj should not be in the list. Ove...

Re: Indian Volleyball

This stage only decides the order for the knockouts. We will either face Japan or Korea in the QF, we should have a chance against the latter.

Re: Indian Boxing Thread

Negi and Satish also lost; so we end up with only 4 in last 16. Amit, Kavinder and Manish all have easy draws, let's see if they can take advantage. We were always poor in heavier categories, but we need to do something for the middle weight categories. Hopefully Vikas Krishnan can get fit by the ti...
