Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

I think in case of tailenders we should include no gree of balls faced also. They are highly unlikely to score heavily but if they stay long enough they can help a regular batsman to score. Having said that India's no7 himself doesn't believe in staying long. Agree that number of balls faced is a g...

Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

Karr, thank you for the analysis. I think most of us are data people here. What Ishant’s bowling numbers don’t show is his propensity to bowl no balls, which reflects in the average, but not the real opportunity cost and morale impact. But, he rarely looks like a wicket taker. Not sure how top order...

To score 25 runs? Why? Why not give that chance to Vihari?
He’s already in the team. I’m sorry if I implied otherwise. I’ll always take a multi-skill person over an unexceptional batsman/bowler.

Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

Australia’s last wicket partnership with Indian bowlers truly being on top was almost as good as the best Indian top order second innings partnership. That says it all. We need a top class spinner in our team. My vote will go to a wrist spinner—Kukdeep seems the best choice to me but he’s probably n...

Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

In all the discussion about who to keep and who we should not, Vijay (and may be Rahul too) surely need to be shown the door.

Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

Let’s see what happens mid way in the match (after one completed innings from both teams). I agree though that it’s more hope than realistic. I think Kohli etc. over estimate our pace prowess. Except Bumrah, we are just ok. This is more of a bravado laden decision that may backfire. But, we should g...

Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

Bhuvi +Jadeja = at least one full bat. Perhaps Vihari will be greater than the sum of these while batting and less than these two while bowling, but we need the bat more than bat. Assuming he’s a better bat than Jadeja, it may turn out to be the right decision after all.

Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

Bhuvi for Umesh and Jadeja for Vihari is what was the need. There is a piece on India’s recent selection follies. Interesting read.

It will be great if they can prepone this tournament cycle a little earlier from next year.
Jay, I expected a response from you. Or Suresh. :D

Are they really injured or is it one of those convenient injuries that miraculously appears in the Indian cricket team when a big name needs to be sat down?

Re: Preparing for Prime Minister Narendra Modi

I am not taking a position either way but here is some data. Prasen has been clamoring for even one index other than human development one, and I remember one clearly called the ease of doing business, which is included in the link below: https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/politics-and-nation...

Re: India in Australia, 2018-2019

And with his indiscipline in cutting out no balls as well as not paying any attention to his batting, Ishant needs to be sent a clear message. Plus, although he may not have been called in this match, he still tends to run into danger zone on the pitch during his follow up. These are simply unaccept...
